Shaun White is trying to do something that no other male Winter Olympic athlete has done before.  He's looking to take the gold in the same event three Olympic games in a row.  He's in qualifying this morning for the men's halfpipe competition.

The road back to the Olympics has not been easy for White.  He's suffered some serious injuries over the last couple of years.  Not to mention that being considered the best snowboarder in the world puts a gigantic target on his back.

Before heading out this morning to the slopes. Shaun recorded a nice thank you message for all his fans.  Good Luck, Shaun!
