Melbourne's Scotty James has scooped a bronze medal in the snowboard half pipe final. 

American Shaun White won the gold medal for the third time, while Japan's Ayumu Hirano took out the silver this afternoon in PyeongChang. 

White scored an impressive 97.75 on his final run in the Olympic snowboard half pipe while James scored a 92 on his first run. 

Hirano was in the running for Gold after his second run, with an impressive 95.25.

Scotty's win is the country's first men's snowboard medallist at a Winter Olympics.

He said it had been a "tough journey" to get to the Olympics, but the experience had been an "incredible ride".

"It's my goal is to come out here and ride as best as I can and fly my Australian flag in the sport that is not necessarily done by many Australians," he said.

"I'm very proud of my country and where I come from but I can assure you I am just getting started, you can expect to see a lot more of me in the future."
