Shaun White says 2018 Olympics are possible; snowboarder talks future on ‘Today’

Shaun White came in fourth on the Olympic halfpipe on Tuesday at the Winter Games and the fans were shocked. The reigning champion no longer was in medal contention and his dream of another gold was gone. Apparently, that’s not entirely true. Shaun White sat down with Matt Lauer on Tuesday during the Today show and shared he is considering another run for gold in the 2018 Olympics.

“I think so,” said Shaun White when asked if he would consider coming back for another run at gold in 2018 on the Today show. The snowboarding star would be 31 and his chances might be more difficult than ever before, but he is open to the possibility. Obviously being four years away there are no guarantees, but if he decides to enter again the door is open.

While the idea of not bring home the medal is disappointing, Shaun White wasn't discouraged. Reminding everyone that one run doesn't define a career of snowboarding, the star didn't seem worried that the fourth place finish would impact his career.

So what will Shaun White be doing now that the Olympics are over for his sport? It appears he has a band and plenty of admiring fans to thank. He already starting thanking fans in Sochi. Win or lose, America is still very proud of the Team USA athlete!
