“Shaun White: Russia Calling,” presented by GoPro, is an hour long documentary about the snowboarder’s preparation and training for the upcoming Sochi Olympics, airing on NBC this Saturday at 8/7 central. GoPro athlete, White, is seen practicing a new trick, the triple cork, never before attempted in a halfpipe. He will strive to win his third straight Olympic title in the Sochi halfpipe and compete in his first Olympic slopestyle competition.

“A lot of the footage you’re seeing is me trying to break down a barrier in my own head and my mindset to get this done,” White said, according to the AP. “It doesn’t work that easily sometimes. This is the real story of what’s going on and what happens to athletes.”
