Following his string of having Olympic champions as guests on his show, Jay Leno interviewed Shaun White last night on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”. In critics’ eyes, it went over a bit more smoothly than the interview with Lindsey Vonn–no awkward sex jokes or anything–and Shaun seemed to have a great time.

Watch the clip here, and hear how Shaun admits that the pressure of being “the one to beat” at the Olympics definitely affected him. He also discusses Olympic medal dry-cleaning, his own personal halfpipe in Colorado, and why skateboarding isn’t in the summer Olympics.
