Fans feared Shaun White may never take to the slopes again after his bloody crash while training for the 2018 Winter Olympics last November.
But the two-time Olympic gold-medalist is back and heading to Pyeongchang, South Korea, and the journey of his recovery is being told in the new Yahoo Sports documentary, “SnowPack: Shaun White and the U.S. Snowboard Team.”
The fall into a side of a halfpipe on Nov. 24 in the Austrian Alps required 62 stitches, emergency surgery and five days in intensive care for White, who now has to attempt the dangerous cab double cork 1440 once again.
“When you have a big crash, the only real way to get over the fear is to chisel away at it, one day at a time,” the 31-year-old said.
“SnowPack” is an eight-part documentary series exploring White’s journey back to the Olympics. It can be seen each week on Yahoo Sports.
