He's got the whole world in his hands!
Is Shaun White your favorite Olympian of all time? Did you love the Flying Tomato years? Did you thrill at each cork, each gold, each jaunty rock n roll bottom of the pipe celebration?
Is your heart sad now that he is aged? Not as spry? Slightly crusty? Hope of more cork, more gold, more jaunty rock n roll bottom of the pipe celebration fading with each and every day?
Well cheer up! Your favorite Olympian of all time is maybe going to have a hand picking future Olympic stars! Let’s read about it on the CBC!
Though Shaun White will never compete in snowboarding’s newest Olympic event, he could have a hand in deciding who does.
The two-time Olympic gold medallist is interested in turning his Air & Style series into an Olympic qualifier for the Big Air competition, which makes its Olympic debut in 2018 in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
White’s tour, which returns to Los Angeles on Feb. 18-19, will mix snowboarders soaring 16 stories high off the big-air ramp with the music from about 20 bands, including Major Lazer and Flume. Other stops in the series are in Beijing and Innsbruck, Austria.
White says he has had preliminary talks with Olympic organizers about turning the tour into a qualifier for the 2022 Olympics in Beijing, and he hasn’t ruled anything out for 2018.
“There are discussions about trying to do something in the future, hopefully in the near future,” White said.
Is your heart soaring again? Oh it should be! And do you think, since he will be picking the Big Air Olympians don’t you think Shaun should be able to dress them too? Maybe something subtle but fabulous from his WHT SPACE line? Maybe in something throwback classic?
