This is the first event of the Olympics.

Maga star Shaun White has dropped out because of a wrist injury, a move drawing some criticism.

However, he isn’t the only one who seems to be concerned about the conditions of the course.

White said he is focusing on winning the halfpipe Tuesday.

The Americans entered are Chas Guldemond, Sage Kotsenburg and Ryan Stassel.

According to NBC, American Jamie Anderson will begin her quest toward a possible gold medal in women’s qualifying.

Experts say she’s a better hope for gold than White was before pulling out of the men’s competition.

Anderson won the 2012 and 2013 X Games.

The other Americans are Ty Walker, Karly Shorr and Jessika Jenson.
