Sad news from Sochi, Shaun White is backing out of the new Slope-style event at the 2014 Olympics. He wants to focus on getting his third Gold Medal on the Half-pipe event. And while the slope-style course has been getting some changes, he's decided to back out after watching fellow athletes injure themselves, even with the changes.
It's alright Shaun, sometimes risk of a bad injury isn't worth it. Good luck on your goal to bring back your third Gold Medal. We'll be cheering you on back in the States.
