The Associated Press KRASNAYA POLYANA (AP)—Just give him the gold. The betting parlors around Europe pretty much already have.
Shaun White is listed as a 1-2 favorite at Ladbrokes to win the Olympic halfpipe contest next Tuesday. Behind him—way behind—are Switzerland’s Iouri Podladtchikov at 5-1 and American Danny Davis at 6-1.
Looking for a bargain? The only man to beat White on a halfpipe this season, American Greg Bretz, is 33-1. White tweaked his ankle that day and finished second.
