COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. — Shaun White will only compete in slopestyle at this week’s World Cup snowboarding event, choosing to skip the halfpipe contest as he tries to get his ailing left ankle back to 100 percent.

The two-time defending Olympic gold medalist was injured Saturday on the halfpipe at the Dew Tour, where he finished second to Greg Bretz. White then pulled out of Sunday’s slopestyle finals.
