American snowboarding legend Shaun White has already announced that the 2022 Winter Olympics will be his last.

White, nicknamed "The Flying Tomato" because of his red hair, has been a staple in the Winter Games since making his debut at the Turin Olympics in 2006.

"I'm going to give it everything I have for this Games, like I do every time, and see where the chips fall," White, 35, said.

Here are a few accomplishments he has earned throughout his career:
