It is no doubt that multi-talented sports athlete Shaun White is one of the best in the world of snowboarding and skateboarding. Ahead of the 2022 Olympic Winter Games this week, Discovery+ greenlights the Untitled Shaun White Docuseries to showcase his life.

The docuseries will be from the award-winning filmmakers behind Trophy and Immigration Nation, Shaul Schwarz and Christina Clusiau, Emmy Award-winning producer Mike Tollin (The Last Dance), and Mandalay Sports Media.

It will be a three-part series that’ll follow Shaun White’s transcendence into these sports. The series will have interviews and never-before-seen personal archival footage. The story will include his childhood struggles with a congenital heart condition, the development of talent, and the sacrifices made by very supportive parents.

“I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to look back on my career and share my decades-long journey and personal archival footage with discover+ audiences around the globe. I cannot wait for viewers to experience my path to the 2022 Olympics right along with me,” said Shaun White in a press release.

White holds the most gold medals by a snowboarder. The filmmakers have been with White in recent months gearing up towards the Olympic Games in Beijing. They are in the process to capture up-to-the-minute footage of White defending his Olympic title in his pursuit of a historic fourth gold medal.

“Shaun White’s road to domination in the worlds of both skateboarding and snowboarding has been a completely wild, twenty-year ride. We are excited to share his drive, struggles, and triumphs with discover+ audiences this year,” stated filmmakers Shaul Schwarz and Christina Clusiau.

Discovery+ announced a release date for the series for later this year.

Good luck, Shaun White! Make America proud.
