Shaun White Olympics 2010 and Anticipation of Gold Medal Win

Shaun White Olympics 2010 and anticipation over gold medal win is building.  Shaun White, a popular American snowboarder has made it to the semi-finals of the half pipe competition at the Olympic games.  All four members of the men’s Olympic snowboarding team have made it to the semi-finals.

Shaun White has a certain charm that draws people to him.  He’s got a true snowboarder/surfer vibe that many people relate to back home.  His loyal fan base inspires him to do his best, and it wouldn’t be surprising at all if he walked away with the gold medal at the US Olympic games.

Shaun White is said to be introducing some new moves that he created himself.  He’s got a half million dollar half pipe set up somewhere in Colorado, paid for by Red Bull.  Plan on sneaking out there to watch him practice? Don’t hold your breath, unless you have a helicopter! His $500k half pipe is only accessible by a helicopter.

Even if Shaun White doesn’t win an Olympic gold – and barring some unforseen accident that seems highly unlikely – he’s still a super star boasting some $8 million a year in sponsorships.

The last time Shaun White made news, it was during a crash during a practice run for the X Games.  You can see a video of the crash HERE.

Research suggest that if the average person were to drink five cups of green tea a day, they would burn an extra 70 to 80 extra calories through an effect known as thermogenesis – the process of heat production in organisms. While much of the thermogenesis effect in green tea is derived from caffeine, studies also suggest(2) that thermogenesis in green tea occurs to some degree beyond its caffeine content from epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG.)
