(AP) The attention-grabbing moment in a new Shaun White documentary is not easy viewing.


Practicing a trick nobody has ever attempted in a halfpipe, White's board gets caught up on the lip. His head and neck whiplash violently against the top of the pipe. Helmet and goggles go flying and White lands with a thud on the bottom, 22 feet below.


It's this slow-motion replay of a painful setback, White's ensuing frustration as he fails to master the triple cork and his eventual discovery of new motivation that turns "Shaun White: Russia Calling" airing Saturday night on NBC into something more than a run-of-the-mill athlete biography.
