Nina, 33, continued, "I couldn't be more proud. Of everything you have accomplished over the last 20 years as a competitor and the man you have become. You are one of a kind. You are a true hero and you inspire me daily."

The three-time Olympic gold medalist announced on Feb. 5 that after competing in the past five Winter Olympics, he would officially retire from snowboarding after the Olympics in Beijing. 

White, 35, said at the men's snowboard halfpipe press conference, held in the city of Zhangjiakou, "This has all had its amazing glow to every single decision and every single competition because I've decided this will be my last Olympics."

On Feb. 11, Shaun exclusively told E! News that Nina has been there "every step of the way" and has supported him throughout training to "brighten" his day with big and small gestures.  

Prior to completing the men's snowboard halfpipe in Beijing on Friday, Feb. 11, Shaun received even more support from his girlfriend of two years on social media. 

On Thursday, Feb. 9, she was seen with arms wrapped around his neck and shoulders in an Instagram post, as she wrote, "did I mention I already won the gold with you? show em' how it's done, you f--king stud."

Now that he's completed his time cruising the slopes, he's ready to return to Nina and his family to start the next chapter of his life.
