Shaun White has won multiple gold medals and managed to turn his dominance in a niche, winter sport into a worldwide empire that includes red carpets, acting gigs and millions of dollars in endorsements. Thus, in theory, getting tabloid attention for a dance-floor makeout session with Maxim magazine's "world's hottest woman" should barely register as an accomplishment. It does though. Oh, it does.

Page Six breathlessly reported in Wednesday editions that the Olympic gold medalist was recently seen getting intimate with supermodel Bar Rafaeli at a New York club. We'd try to pithily summarize the story, but it's impossible to out-New York Post the New York Post.

The half-pipe hero and the Israeli ex of Leonardo DiCaprio promptly hit the dance floor, where they were going for the gold in the canoodle-a-thon. "They were all over each other," our spy said. "They were dancing, hugging, kissing — you name it."

The Post goes on to report that White walked Rafaeli to his car later in the night and let her drive it home. He then went back in the club to party with two other women. LIKE A BOSS.

Rafaeli knows a little something about hanging out with Olympians. In this year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, she posed with Michael Phelps, Rafael Nadal and Chris Paul for a pictorial called "Bar & the Boys." White wasn't included.
