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.
