Shaun White’s Background
Shaun White is a professional snowboarder and skateboarder from the United States. He is also a three-time Olympic gold medalist. White has won 10 ESPY Awards and he is the first and only snowboarder to win both an Olympic gold medal and an X Games gold medal in the same year.
His early years
Shaun White was born on September 3, 1986, in San Diego, California. His father got him started in snowboarding when he was just six years old. When White was seven, his family moved to Carlsbad. It was there that he began to seriously pursue his love of the sport. He joined the local snowboard team and began honing his skills.
White quickly began winning competitions. When he was just 13 years old, he won the halfpipe event at the Thredbo resort in Australia. A year later, he took home first place at both the US Open and the Japan Open. By the time he was 16, White had won 10 gold medals in major competitions.
In 2003, White made his X Games debut. He won a gold medal in the halfpipe event and followed that up with another gold in 2004. He’s continued to compete in the X Games every year since then, racking up an impressive 19 medals (13 gold, 3 silver, 3 bronze) over the course of his career.
His entry into the world of competitive snowboarding
Shaun White was born in San Diego, California, on September 3, 1986, the youngest of two sons born to Roger and Kathy White. When Shaun was just six years old, his father took him to a local snowboard shop and bought him his first board. Shaun loved it immediately and took to the slopes like a fish to water. Not long after that, he started entering local competitions and winning. By the time he was 15, Shaun had turned pro and was winning gold medals at both the Winter X Games and the U.S. Open.
In 2002, at just 16 years old, Shaun made his first appearance at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. Although he didn’t win a medal that year, he did manage to land some impressive tricks that drew attention from both fans and fellow competitors alike. Four years later, at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy, Shaun finally struck gold with his performances in both the halfpipe and slopestyle competitions. He repeated this feat again at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia—becoming the first person ever to do so—and once more at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
