Team USA’s Dating Histories: Inside Shaun White, Mikaela Shiffrin and More Winter Olympians’ Love Lives

When Team USA’s finest athletes competed in the 2022 Winter Olympics, their loved ones were some of their biggest fans.

Shaun White, who competed in his final Winter Olympics in February 2022, has been dating actress Nina Dobrev since 2020. Once White took a spontaneous trip to visit Dobrev on the set of Redeeming Love in South Africa, the X Games medalist knew he found love.

“That was actually how we kind of started our relationship,” White exclusively told Us Weekly in January 2022. “I was like, ‘All right. Yeah. OK.’ And she [thought], ‘Oh, this guy, he came to play. He’s serious.’ So that’s a thing that we share together. We both enjoy traveling.”

While the 2022 Olympians’ loves were unable to support the athletes in person due to coronavirus protocols, fans like Dobrev (and her dogs!) settled for watching the sports events on TV.

“We’ll be anxiously watching from home and cheering him on,” the Vampire Diaries alum told Us in February 2022. “I’m very, very excited for him. I can’t wait. I taped it, so it’s at the house, and as soon as I get home, I’m gonna sit down with my girlfriends and we’re gonna catch up and watch. … [He’s had] such an incredibly long and amazing, successful run of the sport.”
