Shaun White's adding a twist for Sochi.

Well, half a twist, really.

On a video posted to a sponsor's YouTube site Thursday, White shows the world the trick he's been working on for the upcoming Olympics.

It's a frontside double-cork 1440, which resembles his Double McTwist 1260 but adds another half revolution of twist inside the two head-over-heels flips.

White told The Associated Press earlier this month: "Just that subtle a change, it throws the whole axis of the trick off. It's a completely different thing."
