Shaun White fell short of becoming the first-ever American male Winter Olympian to win three straight gold medals in an individual event on Tuesday in Sochi.
So does this mean that the 27-year-old veteran athlete's career ends in Sochi or will come back for the 2018 games in PyeongChang, South Korea?

The snowboarder finished off the podium in fourth place in the men's halfpipe final—Iouri Podladtchikov from Switzerland was the winner. Ayumu Hirano, 15, and Taku Hiraoka, 18, both of Japan, took home silver and bronze, respectively.
