Shaun White is actually leaving the 2014 Sochi Olympics without a medal. Fans crowded around the television to watch him and are actually shocked to hear that he didn't medal this year. On Feb. 11, Kansas City Star shared the big news about Shaun.

Shaun decided to skip the slopestyle which would have been his first time doing this competition in the Olympics. He felt like the course was too risky and he could end up getting hurt. He kind of expected to win the halfpipe, but things didn't go as planned for him. He actually ended up in fourth place which means he didn't even get to bring a medal home with him from the big games.

When asked about it, Shaun said "I'm disappointed. I hate the fact I nailed it in practice, but it happens. It's hard to be consistent." He wasn't a sore loser at all though since he hugged the winner and said he was incredible.

The 2014 Sochi Olympics are still airing on NBC every day, but Shaun White is done with his part of the competition.
