Shaun White Is Ready To Finally Win Multiple Medals At A Single Olympics

The outspoken snowboarder (slash-skateboarder) is pumped to have more than just one thing to do at the winter games. And news-flash, he’s even better at his new event.


Two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and snowboarder extraordinaire Shaun White joined Whitney Jefferson and me for an interview for BuzzFeed Radio on Sirius XM. During our chat, we talked about the lame-ness of Olympic race walking, Shaun’s transition from spokesperson for extreme sports brands to a brand owner himself, and in this clip about how he’ll finally be able to win multiple medals at a single Olympics.

The new event, “Slope Style” Snowboarding, features a series of jumps in a single run down a mountain. White said, “I’ve actually got more medals in that event than the other one. I just don’t do it, because it’s not at the Olympics.” So if you’re a slope style snowboarder, you better watch your back, because White is pumped to finally get to show off his full range of skills in Sochi, Russia at the 2014 games.

Make sure to tune in tomorrow to hear the rest of the interview.
