Shaun White pulled out of the new Olympic Slopestyle event on Wednesday after jamming his wrist on a jump. The world's most famous snowboarder said he will instead concentrate on the halfpipe, where he'll have a chance to win his third straight title next week. In a statement, White said "With the practice runs I have taken, even after course modifications and watching fellow athletes get hurt, the potential risk of injury is a bit too much for me to gamble my other Olympics goals on. For me, I definitely feel the halfpipe carries a bit more weight, a bit more pressure."
