Boy, Shaun White is certainly making the media rounds lately. This morning during the “Today” show on NBC, Shaun joined their “Countdown to Vancouver” segment. He was interviewed by Matt Lauer while we saw footage of Shannon Bahrke on the jumbo-tron in the background. There was also footage of a skier and a snowboarder jumping on a giant trampoline, doing flips and tricks.

Matt asked Shaun how he feels about there being a “target on his back” at this year’s games considering all the other snowboarders are gunning for him this year. Shaun again talked about the new tricks he’s excited to reveal, and how he goes about creating them. If we can get some footage of this interview, we’ll post it a bit later.
