Olympic snowboarding king Shaun White lost to a kid they call the "I-Pod" and finished fourth in the halfpipe Tuesday, making for a shocker in Sochi.

That's right, he didn't even win a medal in the event he dominated and won gold in during the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympics. White finished fourth.

Shaun White Loses at Olympics
Shaun White's fall at the 2014 Olympic winter games in Sochi meant he didn't earn a medal in the halfpipe, an Olympic shocker.

The 27-year-old American, who opted out of the Olympic slopestyle debut, put all his chips in the halfpipe, where he hoped to win a third straight gold.

Iouri Podladtchikov, a.k.a. "I-Pod" and the Russian-born inventor of the "YOLO" trick that White could not master, took first place in a mammoth upset.

The Japanese pair of Ayumu Hirano and Taku Hiraoka won silver and bronze, as the Americans were shockingly shut out on the halfpipe for the first time.

I-Pod's "YOLO" stunt, which stands for You Only Live Once, set the bar high for White, who has previously owned the halfpipe to a ridiculous extent.

"I want to apologize for the unwise choices I made over the weekend and for any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests," White says in a statement posted on his Facebook page.

"I was celebrating a happy occasion with a ton of family and friends and got carried away. I'm truly sorry for my poor behavior."

Did he ever!

White was in town for musician Patrick Carney's wedding and is accused of pulling a hotel fire alarm and then attempting to flee the scene, only to end up tackled by a citizen with whom White tussled soon after his evacuation prank.

He was taken to a hospital after police arrived on the scene and then treated, charged and released.

Shaun White might dominate in the air of winter, but the snow boarder extraordinaire got himself in some trouble early Sunday morning on the grounds of a Nashville hotel.

Here's what allegedly went down:

The Nashville Metro Police Department says cops were called to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel around 2 a.m. because a clearly drunk White evacuated the facility by pulling the fire alarm. He also reportedly smashed a phone.

When another guest tried to stop The X Games champion from fleeing the scene via taxi, White kicked that individual and sprinted away on foot. Or tried to, at least.

The victim jumped to his feet and tackled White, who slammed his head against a fence.

White - who authorities confirm reeked of alcohol - was taken to a nearby hospital and booked for vandalism and public intoxication. Fortunately for him, the citizen declined to press assault charges.

Bar Refaeli. Shaun White.

Not two people we would've predicted would get together, but who are we to judge, right? The snowboarding champ was spotted with Maxim’s newly crowned “hottest woman in the world” at NYC lounge Sway “dancing, hugging and kissing” Monday.

Score one for the Flying Tomato.

The New York Post writes that "the Israeli ex of Leonardo DiCaprio and the half-pipe hero promptly hit the dance floor, going for the gold in the canoodle-a-thon."

Mark that down as one of the best celebrity gossip lines of the year.

“They were all over each other,” a spy said. “They were dancing, hugging, kissing ... you name it.” Then “around 3 a.m.,” White gallantly walked her out.

No word if Sean White has seen Bar Refaeli nude in person yet, but millions of Maxim readers have. Okay, probably more like a few thousand at this point.
