haun White has been relishing the small parts – the last opening ceremony

White affirmed what seemed likely: his fifth Winter Games 

the last time anyone could see the three-time gold medalist on the stage that he had used to help grow his sport.

For me, this has all had this amazing glow to every single decision, every single competition because this will be my last Olympics,” White said Saturday

“I’m just so excited about everything. Opening ceremony was incredible. The venue looks incredible. Just enjoying every single moment.”

White said the decision became evident while training in Austria in the lead-up to these Games. 

He had called off training because of a lingering ankle injury, had pain in his knee despite surgery to repair it and had tweaked his back working out.
