Shaun White not ruling out 2014 Winter Games

Snowboarding's greatest showman might have an Olympic encore in mind.

Fresh off his jaw-dropping victory in Vancouver, Shaun White showed up to cheers and squeals on ``The Oprah Winfrey Show'' Friday and says he's thought ``a little bit'' about trying for a third straight men's halfpipe gold medal at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

He said: ``Why would I not want to experience this again?''

White had already won gold this week when he did his second run with nothing to lose. He pulled out his Double McTwist 1260 - two board-over-head flips inside of 3 1/2 turns - and pulled it off.


White says the trick is all about commitment. And he says he wanted to do it after the trick led to a nasty spill during a practice at last month's Winter X Games.

Says White: ``I'll be a guy to not give up, to not quit easily. I got back up.''
