shaun white snowboard Shaun White's amazing Olympic gold victory lap
Gold medal snowboarding champ Shaun White tries to explain the nervous preparation and excitement of winning the gold last night. 
“To have all those eyes on me and so much pressure… not sleeping…,” he says. “I’m so happy, and I’m just happy I was here and could win for the US and make it a historical day, Yeah, and make my parents proud.” 


He also discusses his past injuries and surgeries — which make his Olympic win even more amazing — and why he wanted to blow everyone away with his victory lap.
Those amazing moves (video here)  were, he says, “my way of showing everyone in the world, on a big world stage, what I can do.” 
And show us, he did.  Congrats, Shaun!
