Shaun White has thanked skateboarding legend Tony Hawk for helping to inspire him to chase Olympic gold and asked for his support as he targets more.
Hawk, widely regarded as the greatest skateboarder in history and a pioneer for many of the tricks in the sport, first met White when he was nine years old.
