After winning a gold medal in the halfpipe in Torino, the “Flying Tomato” will again be a favorite in Vancouver. Shaun White has become synonymous with action sports. A two-sport star—snowboarding and skateboarding—Shaun is easily recognized by his trademark shock of red hair, which earned his nickname. The Flying Tomato is the first, and to date only, athlete ever to win both the Summer and Winter X Game titles. Shaun was born with a heart defect that required two surgeries at a young age and also was so severely bow legged as a young child that he was required to wear leg braces. Neither malady has held him back and you can expect him to soar this winter!
