We already know that Shaun White is the best thing to happen to Olympic snowboarding since sliced hay. He won a gold medal in his first Olympics at age 19. He's mastering tricks that other snowboarders can't even comprehend. Even his face is indestructible. But this time, he's going to be even better — he's getting big.

Already the best in the world, White's new physique has caught the eye of opposing coaches. Canadian snowboard coach Tom Hutchinson told The Canadian Press, "He was a pretty small guy -- you see him now, the guy has worked out. He's gotten big because he realizes that the crashes are getting so hard. You need to be in good shape."

White, who skateboards competitively in the offseason, says that his second sport helps his reflexes and how to find the ground when he's spinning. He also has talked about a workout routine that he follows. However, White and his coach are reticent to give the details of his training regimen outside of the fact that he does go to the gym and he plays the guitar. So basically he's any college sophomore. He just happens to have a secret halfpipe and several world championships.
