VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Still buzzing from his Olympic victory on the halfpipe earlier this week, Shaun White said Friday that he would consider adding slopestyle to his schedule if it were brought onto the Olympic program for the Sochi Games.

”I think I’d love to compete in both,” White said.

Slopestyle and halfpipe skiing are among the sports being considered for inclusion in 2014, as the International Olympic Committee continues trying to bring more exciting, younger-skewing sports into the fold.

In slopestyle, riders do huge tricks while going down the mountain and through ”features” — rails, big jumps and bumps. At ski resorts, slopestyle is widely thought of as an easier way for amateur snowboarders to do cool tricks than on a halfpipe.

LINDSEY VONN will race in today’s super-G after taking a day off skis to rest her bruised right shin.

Vonn’s husband, Thomas, said that resting while many racers skied ”definitely helped her shin out.”

He said it’s ”one of those injuries that hurts a lot, but it’s not really affecting her skiing a whole lot.”

Vonn won gold in the downhill Wednesday, and led after the first portion of the super-combined Thursday before falling in the slalom run. She said her leg was ”killing me.”

SCOTTY LAGO, the American halfpipe bronze medalist, volunteered to leave the Olympics after risque pictures of him showed up on the Internet.

Lago, who was awarded his bronze medal Thursday night, was at a party wearing a Team USA T-shirt when the photos were taken.

In the aftermath of several out-of-competition incidents in Turin, one of which resulted in the dismissal of freestyle skier Jeret Peterson, the USOC has made extra efforts to emphasize athletes be on their best behavior when they’re at the Olympics.
