Olympian Shaun White and Actress Nina Dobrev Pack on the PDA in Intimate Photos on Instagram

As we near the 2022 Winter Olympics, we're anxious to see which of our favorite athletes will take home medals (and also who will be cheering them on from home).

Shaun White, who has taken home three gold medals for his snowboarding skills, will return to the Olympic Games this winter in Beijing. However, he told People that he believes this will be his final Olympics, saying, “Having such a long and amazing career, now at this point in my life, I can go back and go ‘Wow, it's been incredible.’” But he won't be leaving the sport entirely. He added, “I don't think I will ever leave the sport. It is just me taking on a new role which is empowering and exciting.”

One of White's biggest supporters will undoubtedly be his girlfriend, Nina Dobrev. The athlete has been linked to the Vampire Diaries actress since March of 2020, and just this week, Dobrev shared a snap to Instagram of herself kissing White's cheek, along with other moments from their wintry getaway.

“Winter wonderland,” she captioned the slideshow, adding a kissing emoji and a snowman emoji.

In the slideshow, we see a video of Dobrev and White engaging in a snowball fight, as well as snuggling in bed and spending time with their relatives. The photos and videos were captured during a joint trip the couple's families took during the Christmas season.

Dobrev had posted other romantic photos from the vacation at the beginning of the new year, which she captioned, “Snow daze.” In these pics, she and White were seen cozying up with each other, as well as posing with their dog and truck.

We can't wait to see what Nina posts when Shaun embarks on his Olympic journey.
