Olympic gold medalist Shaun White vying for new title
HollywoodNews.com: Shaun White is one of snowboarding and skateboarding’s best athletes around. After coming off a gold-medal winning performance at the Vancouver Olympics in the snowboard halfpipe, he’s now vying for a new skateboarding title to add to his collection.
The Skateboarding World Champion will be White’s first time competing for the title of Skate Vert World Champion. White previously captured the 2007 Dew Cup in skate vert with three straight event titles.
“Now that I am finally off the snow I am looking forward to skating,” said White. “I have been gearing up for the tour trying some new tricks. It should be an awesome time for the fans.”
In addition to White, top skate athletes from around the world will be competing at the Skate Open in both skate park and vert, including defending Dew Cup champion and Skate Vert World Champion, Bucky Lasek. Boston-local Andy Macdonald, up-and-comer Alex Perelson and vert legend Bob Burnquist will also be among those competing against White in a fierce battle for both the Skate Open win and the title of ISF Skateboarding World Champion in the vert discipline.
