Shaun White has been known as one of the best snowboarders for a very long time now, but that hasn’t come without setbacks.
Shaun White has won the gold medal for halfpipe competition in 2006, 2010 and now for a third time in 2018 in South Korea. His 2014 in Sochi was less than stellar. He finished in fourth place which was his first time not even medalling in the Olympics. He admitted that he wasn’t focused during this time period. He was doing other things and even had his own band. During this time frame of him and his band, he had sexual allegations charges against him.
After he won his Gold Medal the other night, he was asked in a press conference about these allegations and White responded saying he wasn’t there to talk about “gossip.” When on The Today Show and asked if he wanted to say anything – he then apologized for calling such a sensitive topic gossip.
