United States men's snowboarder Shaun White is by far the sport's biggest star

As a professional snowboarder and skateboarder, at just 31-years-old, Shaun White's career has amassed him some of the most prestigious and coveted awards in his field.
Growing up around mountains, I was able to hit the slopes when there was enough snowfall. In 2008 White executed a near-perfect second run and captured his third consecutive halfpipe title at the 2008 US Open Snowboarding Championships.
White's last experience on the world stage was in the Sochi Olympics where he split his attention between halfpipe and slopestyle.
Wanting to follow in his older brother's footsteps, White switched from skiing to snowboarding at the age of six, and by the age of seven he wound up obtaining his first sponsorship. White, who also participated in the Winter X Games, had taken home a gold medal every year since 2002. In 2012 White made history when he became the first person to score a flawless 100 in the men's superpipe in the entire history of the Winter X Games.
In 2003, his competition - and medal placement - in both the regular and Winter X Games, for two different sports, made him the first athlete to ever do so. Aside from shredding on the snow, White also skateboards.
In 2014 White finished fourth at the 2014 Winter Olympics in the Halfpipe event. His first appearance was in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy.
After 2010, White went for more. Shaun devoted himself to snowboarding from that point on constantly making it a point to flawless his craft and obtain as many career accolades as possible. Two-time Olympic gold medal victor. His Double McTwist 1260, which he named the "Tomahawk", gave him a score of 48.4 out of a total 50 points. He is the first person to perform the trick and gave it worldwide recognition.
Flagbearer James caused a stir ahead of the Winter Olympics when he admitted to feeling "shafted" by being marked too harshly by judges while chief halfpipe rival White was overscored. "Now, I get a chance to throw my best and see how it stacks up". It's kind of like you have a scar from falling off a bike, it's just with you forever. So, it's a part of me now, which is great. "Personally, and I have spoken to a lot of other people, other snowboarders". At that time many thought he'd call it quits, and White admits his heart wasn't in it. "Same for me [before Sochi]". It was just a unusual one to be honest, everything that happened at Sochi had never really happened before. What else can you do?
If his final qualifying run and quotes of revived passion are any indication, White is in for a rebound from his fourth-place Sochi finish, which he himself has acknowledged as disappointing. I'm probably not supposed to say that. Not to mention, who doesn't like a good comeback. "If I do that, I'm totally content".
