American star snowboarder Shaun White has already made headlines for an event he won’t participate in at the 2014 Sochi Games, but he is building the anticipation for Tuesday’s snowboard halfpipe event.
White is inexplicably wearing a spacesuit and wrote “it’s all happening” while the caption of the photo says “wish me luck!” White, the Olympic gold medal winner in the halfpipe in at the 2006 Turin Games and the 2010 Vancouver Games hasn’t needed much luck in the past.
Now that he has officially withdrawn from the slopestyle event, he’ll be able to devote 100 percent of his focus to pulling off a threepeat.
