Shaun White shared the following message with his Facebook followers: “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. I know my fans will have my back on this difficult decision. Thanks for the continued support.”

Slopestyle qualifying starts Thursday, the day before the opening ceremony. Shaun’s focus now will be solely defending his halfpipe gold medal on Tuesday.
