As an Olympic snowboarder, Shaun admits he doesn't have much time to date. "I had a girlfriend for like four years that was really supportive of me," he says. "I would come back and I'd be gone for months and I'd be, like: 'Hey, what's up? You still like me? Okay, bye.' It's one of those things...I'm on the road all the time."

But there is one special person Shaun says he'd like to meet—President Barack Obama. "It seems like you win the gold for the U.S., you should meet the president," he says. "That would be cool."

Looking to the future, Shaun says he's not ruling out the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. "Going to Russia, representing—why would I not want to experience this again? But I don't know," he says. "I'm just trying to live in the moment."
