How to watch USA snowboarding star live at 2022 Games

The legendary snowboarder Shaun White will compete in his fifth and final Olympics this year in Beijing.

The three-time halfpipe Olympic champion almost missed his chance to qualify for this year’s Team USA. He tested positive for COVID-19, then didn’t place high enough in the final U.S. qualifier. So, he traveled to Switzerland to compete in order to make the roster, which he ultimately did.

The 35-year-old is calling this year’s Olympics his “bonus round” as he gets his last chance to secure an Olympic medal.

Here’s what you need to know about Shaun White’s Olympic schedule, along with how to watch his events.
