Olympic failure doesn't make or break Shaun White

  • Shaun White went on to discuss his fourth-place finish one day after not being able to make the podium. 

    "I wish I could say I'm a little better," he said. "But I'm all right."

    He told host Matt Lauer that he has dealt with such situations multiple times and is "appreciative of being an Olympian" but disappointed in his performance.

    "I needed the extra practice for the halfpipe," White said. "I don't think it makes or breaks my career but I'm definitely disappointed."
