Shaun White has obviously had considerable success on the the slopes after winning back-to-back Olympic Gold Medals, but now it seems White is poised to further push his cross-over potential as an all-around celebrity.
After recently dropping long-time agency IMG to defect to Hollywood mega-firm CAA, White has been really pushing the spotlight with appearances at numerous awards shows in recent months. As Shaun gears up for a return to competitive skateboarding with this summer’s Dew Tour, White will have added confidence going into the contest after collecting the title of “Chairman of the Board.” The award was recently given to White at the 2010 Spike TV Guy’s Choice Awards, for his obvious prowess on anything resembling a board.
Hopefully the award has healing powers too, as White had to rely on a cane to make it up to the stage after rolling his ankle skateboarding.
Here’s a clip of White walking the red carpet at the Spike TV Guy’s Choice Awards in his standard attire of sans t-shirt.
