Team USA has already won three gold medals in snowboarding events, from Jamie Anderson in the women’s slopestyle, Red Gerard in the men’s slopestyle and Chloe Kim in the women’s halfpipe. Shaun White will look to add to the U.S.’s medal collection in the men’s halfpipe event.
White is a four-time Olympian and won gold in the 2010 Vancouver and 2006 Turin Olympics. He will certainly be one to watch heading into Tuesday’s coverage of the Winter Games in Pyeongchang.

The first gold medal for Team USA at the 2018 Winter Olympics came by the high-flying display of 17-year-old Red Gerard in the snowboard slopestyle event. Becoming an instant American hero, Gerard became the youngest U.S snowboarder to ever win an Olympic medal, and the youngest Olympian ever to win gold. His place in the record books is safe by just two months, as 17-year-old Chloe Kim gets ready for her own run at a gold medal in the women’s halfpipe snowboard event on Monday evening.
Kim would have competed in Sochi in 2014 if it wasn’t for the pesky age limit keeping her sidelined, but she hasn’t just been biding her time for Olympic glory in the years since. Rather, Kim went on to be the only athlete in X Games history to medal four times before the age of 18. She also dominated her first two qualifying runs in Pyeongchang, finishing with 95.50 and 91.50, and earning a place in the halfpipe final — which she is wildly expected to win.
Following the primetime medal events, curling and women’s halfpipe, the men’s halfpipe qualifying runs — featuring Winter Olympics legend Shaun White — will get underway beginning at 11 p.m. ET in Pyeongchang.
