31-year-old snowboarder Shaun White was looking for a little redemption in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang after not medaling in the halfpipe in 2014 at Sochi. On Wednesday he got it, but it certainly wasn’t easy.

After winning Olympic gold in 2006 and 2010, White had to overcome a horrific crash he suffered while training in October where he sustained brutal injuries to his face and lungs. At the time, White’s coach J.J. Thomas gave him a 50/50 chance of being recovered enough for the Winter Olympics.
