Shaun White's skateboarding Career

At a very early age, Shaun's talent was noticed by the legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk. Shaun started training under Tony at the age of 9, and by 16, he was a professional skateboarder. Interestingly, he had started his journey in skiing before switching to skateboarding at 6.

White started competing at the X Games, and notably, he has clinched every medal at the games since 2000. In 2006, he made his maiden Olympics appearance at the Winter Olympics and clinched the gold medal in the half-pipe event.

In 2008, White released his own video game named 'Shaun White Snowboarding', which became the 20th best-selling game in the USA in 2008. White had his second Olympic appearance in 2010, at the Vancouver Winter Olympics, and again clinched the gold medal.

In 2012, he created history by becoming the first-ever snowboarder to score a perfect 100 at the Winter X Games in the men's Snowboard SuperPipe event. However, in the 2014 Winter Olympics, he missed out on the podium finish by a whisker, finishing at the fourth position.

In the 2016 Winter Olympics, he again reclaimed his title by clinching the gold medal. Remarkably, he had faced a major injury leading to 62 stitches on his face, albeit he still outclassed everyone. His gold medal marked the 100th win for team USA at the Winter Olympics.
