ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Shaun White turned in a nearly flawless performance in the superpipe at the Winter X Games on Sunday night and then quickly vowed to step up his game even more for the Sochi Olympics next winter.
The best snowboarder around just isn't satisfied.
The two-time Olympic gold medalist is always looking to stay ahead of the competition, especially when the field includes up-and-comers such as Ayumu Hirano, a 14-year-old from Japan who just may be the next Shaun White.
Shortly after locking up his sixth straight title at Winter X, White gushed about the teenager who finished runner-up, saying he thinks Hirano has an "amazing future" in front of him.
Only one problem: White isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
