Halfpipe: Shaun White profile

Most Grays on Trays aren't into competitive riding--halfpipe, slopestyle, boardercross, etc.--but we can still appreciate the skills of those who do. Talk about the Olympics, X Games, the U.S. Snowboarding Open, etc. here.

Olympian Shaun White Aims to Catch Some Air and a Medal
Feb. 10, 2005 — The U.S. Olympic team is poised to snatch one of its first gold medals of the Turin Games this weekend when a redheaded teen from California known as "The Flying Tomato" takes off on his snowboard.

At 19, Shaun White is already a veteran in the snowboarding community with major sponsors and a stack of X Games victories. He makes his Olympics debut Sunday in the halfpipe event, where he'll be careening down a 20-foot-tall sheet of ice after tossing huge jumps off the side of the wall.
