Shaun White Quits Olympic Event Over This Death-Defying Course (VIDEO)

Shaun White won't compete on this Olympic snowboarding course, but now you can -- and you don't even have to buy a ticket to Sochi, participate in any pesky qualifying events or risk injury to do it.

The video above offers a first-person point of view of the slopestyle course at Sochi, a course that has caused dozens of injuries during practice runs, including a concussion and a broken collar bone. Organizers tried to modify it to make it safer, but two-time gold medalist White says it's still too dangerous for him.

One look at the video and you can see why.

"It's like jumping out of a building," Sebastien Toutant, a Canada snowboarder, told the Olympic News Service.

But Toutant still plans to compete, and according to AP, he couldn't resist a poke at White on Twitter.

"Mr. White... It's easy to find excuses to pull out of a contest when you think you can't win," Toutant said in a tweet that was later deleted.

White still plans to compete in the halfpipe, the event that gave him two gold medals.
