United States snowboarder Shaun White reveals that he would like to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics after failing to pick up a medal in Sochi.

United States snowboarder Shaun White has revealed that he is desperate to compete in the next Winter Olympics in 2018 after missing out on a medal in Sochi.

The 27-year-old finished in fourth place in the half-pipe as he missed out on securing his third gold medal in as many Olympic Games, following his successes in Vancouver and Turin.

White told BBC Sport: "The last thing I want to think and speak about at the moment is the next Olympics as this has just happened, but I would love to go to another.

"It was an honour to be here and part of it and I would love to be there [in 2018] - but as for now, that is a long way off."

Switzerland's Iouri Podladtchikov won the event with a score of 94.75.
