  • Shaun White Pulls Out of Sochi Slopestyle After Concerns Arise About Conditions

    Shaun White announced Wednesday he will not be competing in the slopestyle event making it’s debut at the Sochi games, because of risk of injury plaguing the course. White suffered what would be the last of many spills on the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park course in Sochi, before deeming it too dangerous to compete on. After hurting his wrist on a trial run the two time Olympic gold medal winner made the decision making it the last straw in a series of small injuries sustained. “After much deliberation with my team, I have made the decision to focus solely on trying to bring home the third straight gold medal in halfpipe for Team USA,” White told TODAY in a statement. “The difficult decision to forego slopestyle is not one I take lightly as I know how much effort everyone has put into holding the slopestyle event for the first time in Olympic history, a history I had planned on being a part of. “ Concerns went mainstream after Torstein Horgmo of Norway broke his collarbone jumping off of a rail that was criticized as being too slippery.

  • 6 Professional Athletes Who Have Given Music A Try

    Music and athletics are often thought of as mutually exclusive. Athletes aren’t thought of to possess artistic ability for somewhat unfounded reasons that exist solely in the realm of immature stereotyping. Don’t be mistaken, sometimes the stereotypes are true and athletes should not be allowed to step into a music-recording booth—people like John Cena. But, the WWE star is excluded from consideration due to the blatantly scripted nature of the professional wrestling. And, this list will only focus on athletes who don’t play in scripted sporting affairs.

  • We Talk Music, Being a Dick and Space Travel With Shaun White

    Stride and 7-11 teamed up to release the official gum flavor of Shaun White called Mintacular. We got to talkin with Mr. White about his passion for The Black Keys, some other tunes he listens to while on the slopes and how big of a jerk he was in Friends with Benefits. For being a sponsored pro snowboarded for more than half of his life, the brah was a pretty down to Earth brah. The kid’s got charisma and a seasoned vet at making the camera his best friend. Travis Pastrana is safe as the world’s Swiss Army knife of extreme sport athletes for now, because White is too busy with the two sports he already dominates. Although the idea of space travel did tickle his mustache, he’s content with being on a board with gravity holding him down just enough so he can pull off some serious air on the pipe. On the topic of medals and competing, he went into a zone and for a minute, you saw the focus in him. That determination you’d expect from the best snowboarder in the world and not the guy who looks like the kid you bought purple haze from on more »
