Snowboarding: Shaun White withdraws from US Open

Associated Press

STRATTON, Vt. Shaun White is "exhausted" and will not compete at the U.S. Open snowboarding championships.

The Vancouver Olympic gold medalist was scheduled to compete in the men's halfpipe Saturday.

U.S. Open officials issued a one-sentence statement after the first run of the men's semifinals: "Unfortunately Shaun White is exhausted and not feeling well enough to compete in today's U.S. Open halfpipe event."

The men's and women's finals are scheduled for later Saturday afternoon.
