White, who withdrew from the debut slopestyle event due to “the potential for injuries,” posted a photo of himself on his Twitter account Saturday morning to cap off his week-long Olympic countdown.

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.
