Decorated Olympian Shaun White reveals future goals

Decorated Olympian Shaun White revealed his future goals and it includes possibly competing in skateboarding in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan.

In a social media video, the three-time gold medalist in snowboarding emphasized he has not retired from snowboarding, as some had thought, but would probably take a lighter snowboarding season next year to concentrate on skateboarding.

“I’ve entered myself into a couple of skateboarding competitions this summer,” White said. “I haven’t officially decided to go for the Summer Olympics in 2020 in Japan, but I’m going to go try myself out at these events and see where I stack up with the other skaters and then make the decision.

“But I’m definitely not retiring from the sport of snowboarding. I love it too much. I can’t walk away just yet…

“But man, if I could make the Summer Olympic team going from winter in Korea to summer in Japan, I mean, it probably would be the ultimate for me.”
