VWO (Day 1) – ESPN The Mag: Winter Olympic Preview

Check out my new cover story on snowboarder Shaun White, who I interviewed many times over the past nine months for this piece. Our first interview took place at his secret halfpipe in Silverton, Colorado, in February 2009. Then I sat down with him last fall at a swanky SoHo hotel in New York City and again at each stop along the Grand Prix circuit, where he was competing for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team. Check out the story, and a video from the photo shoot here. (If you look closely, you can catch a cameo of me and my sling! That’s also me who Shaun keeps looking off-camera at while answering my questions. Man, I look great on camera!)
