Shaun White through the years

Decorated snowboarder Shaun White is in PyeongChang, competing in what will likely be his final Olympic Games. After finishing fourth in Sochi four years ago, the former pro skateboarder is looking to add another medal to an impressive Olympic haul that already includes gold medals in the halfpipe event from both the Turin and Vancouver Games.

As White readies himself to follow up an impressive qualifying performance with a medal-worthy showing in the final, we take a look at the evolution of his look over the years, from “The Flying Tomato” to his current, more sophisticated look.
