Shaun White: Path to Becoming an Olympian


In this video, Olympic gold medalist and entrepreneur, Shaun White, talks about being born with the same exact heart condition as Jimmy Kimmel's newborn baby boy Billy, and he explains how he ended up becoming an Olympian in spite of it. Shaun describes how he had the surgery shortly after being born. He was turning blue and the doctors came in and identified his heart condition.

Legend isn’t often a word bestowed upon someone in his early 30s, but then again, most 32-year-olds aren’t Shaun White. Dual-sport professional athlete in snowboarding and skateboarding, 3-time Olympic gold medalist, musician, designer and entrepreneur, White has catapulted the world of action sports into popular culture. With a business acumen as lofty as his massive air on the half pipe, audiences will be floored by his personal story and insights into building a lasting and wildly successful global brand.
