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.





Traveling The World

While White has been busy practicing his skateboarding skills and tricks, he’s still been taking the time to relax and travel the world with friends and family.





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.




Hanging With His Best Friend

White also loves to spend time with his best friend, Leroy, who doesn't mind stealing the show in front of the camera.
