Shaun White Is Getting Dragged For Dragging The Flag After Winning Gold In The Halfpipe
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.
I’ve always lived my life by pushing the limits. Winning is great, but it’s the tough times that truly define you. I took a slam while training the other day, but don’t worry I’ll be back soon and better than ever!! Thanks @beatsbydre for bringing me into the family. #NormalisBoring #1of1 #RockNRoll
