When does Shaun White compete?

That’s the question many Olympics’ fans are asking right now. White, the two-time Olympics gold medalist in the men’s snowboarding halfpipe (and the biggest name in snowboarding period) is in the mix for another gold medal at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic games.

White earned a nearly perfect score of 98.5 in his second run in the qualifying round on Tuesday, giving him the top spot in the halfpipe finals.

Before White prepared to compete in the halfpipe final on Tuesday, allegations against him of sexual harassment resurfaced. White settled a 2016 lawsuit brought by a former drummer in his rock band that he “repeatedly sexually harassed her.”

Four Americans have made it to the men’s snowboard halfpipe finals. In addition to White, U.S. snowboarders Ben Ferguson, Chase Josey, and Jake Pates all scored high enough in the qualifying the round to earn a spot in the finals and be able to compete for a medal.

They are hoping to build on the success of 17-year-old phenom Chloe Kim and Arielle Gold, the Americans who won the gold and bronze medal, respectively, in the women’s snowboarding halfpipe finals this week.

So … when does Shaun White compete? White and the rest of the field will ride in the men’s snowboard halfpipe finals on Wednesday morning in South Korea. Because of the time change, the event will be broadcast on Tuesday night in the U.S.
