Shaun White to compete in World Cup event

COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) — Shaun White's balky left ankle apparently isn't going to keep the two-time Olympic gold medalist out of this weekend's World Cup event in Colorado.

White posted a picture of a halfpipe on his Facebook page on Tuesday. The picture included a message that read "I am in the building" as an introduction. The greatest snowboarder of all time tweaked the ankle during his first run in the halfpipe finals of an event in Breckinridge, Colo., on Saturday. He completed his second run but finished runner-up to Greg Bretz. White skipped the slopestyle finals Sunday.

White needs 50 points and a top-30 finish in a World Cup event to be eligible for the Olympics. He could get both with a successful weekend at Copper Mountain.
