Snowboarding icon Shaun White made history today as he won his third career gold medal in the men’s halfpipe final at the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, marking the 100th medal won by the United States in the Winter Games. With his big win, figures in Hollywood and fellow athletes took to Twitter congratulate him.

White racked up a score of 97.75 besting younger snowboarders Ayumu Hirano of Japan, who scored 95.25 in his best run to win silver as well as Scotty James of Australia who took the bronze who scored 92.00 in his best run. White previously nabbed gold in halfpipe at Turin 2006 as well as Vancouver 2010. He didn’t medal at Sochi 2014 so his win in South Korea is a dramatic comeback — and Twitter celebrated accordingly.
