Biography

Olympic gold medalist Shaun White defied gravity every time he stepped on a snowboard. As a native of Southern California, White developed a passion for action sports as a child and turned pro by the time he was in his teens. He dominated the sport of snowboarding, turning in death-defying tricks in halfpipe competitions that often landed him in first place. White amassed multiple gold medals at the Winter X Games and U.S. Open titles. An equally accomplished skateboarder, White became the first athlete to win gold medals in two different sports at the Summer X Games and the Winter X Games in 2003. Yet even with his all his early achievements and commercial success, White still had more tricks up his sleeve when he competed in the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin, Italy. The athlete stunned millions worldwide when he won his first gold medal in the snowboard halfpipe event. He made history at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, Canada for earning the highest score and for winning back-to-back gold medals in the sport. With an impressive career that spanned sports, entertainment, and endorsement deals, White proved himself to be a modern day Renaissance man and role model for generations to come.
