SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Iouri Podladtchikov of Switzerland ended American Shaun White's reign as Olympic champion Tuesday by winning the snowboarding halfpipe gold medal.

White failed to win a medal of any kind after falling in his first run of the final and then producing, what by his standards was, an ordinary run in his second attempt.

The silver and bronze medals were won by Japanese snowboarders -- Ayumu Hirano and Taku Hiraoka.
