Shaun White poses during the medal ceremony for the men's snowboard halfpipe final at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics on Feb. 14, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea.
Shaun White and snowboarding; name a more iconic duo. The four-time Olympian and three-time Olympic gold medalist in the sport turned 33 on Tuesday, Sept. 3, and boy has he been busy this past year.
From remembering his historic experience at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 to considering vying for the skateboarding team at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and traveling the world, here’s a look at how White has spent the past year.
Back To His Roots
White has been contemplating a run at the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team for the Olympic debut of his first love – skateboarding – in Tokyo.
He is already the first athlete to compete and medal in two different sports at the Summer and Winter X Games, and he could become the first to compete in both at the Olympic Games, should he choose to pursue Olympic qualification.
White’s skateboarding event of choice, however, had always been vert. For Tokyo, he’ll have to learn to excel in park, as that and street are the two Olympic events.

Remembering The Glory
The moments White has created are some of the most unforgettable in Team USA history, including earning the nation’s 100th gold in Winter Games history in PyeongChang. Fortunately for all of us, he still takes the time to remember and reflect.
Feb 13th marks 1 year since I won the gold in Korea!!! When I think back to that moment I was so proud to have won the gold but mostly I think of all the people that supported me and continue to support me. I love all of you!! 💙 pic.twitter.com/qdzoAwI7da— Shaun White (@shaunwhite) February 15, 2019
