Shaun White zieht sich aus dem Slopestyle-Wettbewerb der Olympischen Spiele in Sotschi zurück. Das Verletzungsrisiko sei zu hoch, er wolle sich voll auf die Wettbewerbe in der Halfpipe konzentrieren.
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. 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 being a part of. – Shaun White,
