Shaun dished to People about having her support as he prepares for the athletic competition once again.

“Nina’s incredible. What an influence on my life. Not only does she run her own show, her own world, companies she’s involved in, things she’s producing, all this stuff going on. She holds me to this same high standard which is so wonderful to have in a partner,” he shared during his interview from Switzerland.

Speaking more about his relationship with Nina, Shaun recalled some difficulty going to see her as she was filming a project in Canada, during the pandemic. However, there were still border restrictions on crossing over.

“That was probably one of the toughest things because I couldn’t get into Canada. I tried,” he said, laughing. “I was turned around. I was like, ‘C’mon I was at the Olympics here. You remember? I cut my hair.’”

Shaun added that it was “challenging”, but says that “it’s one of those things where we have a nice little system of how to stay in touch. Plane tickets are pretty much booked for any opportunity to see one another.”

“I know during the holidays we’re going to meet up around Christmastime. Anything that happens in between then, I’ll jet over and see her. You just make it work, that’s just the goal and key to it all.”

Shaun and Nina were first linked together in March of last year, and made things Instagram official in a funny way.
