American snowboarder Shaun White referred to sexual harassment allegations made in a 2016 lawsuit as "gossip" Wednesday after winning a gold medal in the men’s halfpipe at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Jake Seiner of the Associated Press noted White was asked whether the lawsuit could "tarnish his reputation," and follow-up questions about the subject were turned down by U.S. Snowboarding executive Nick Alexakos.

"I’m here to talk about the Olympics, not gossip and stuff," he said. "I don’t think so."
