A three-time Olympic medalist – gold in 2002 and bronze in both 2010 and now 2014 – Kelly Clark is a trailblazer and dominant force in the sport. She continually pushes the innovation and amplitude of her riding to new heights, making history and setting new records in her wake.
Kelly is still one of a handful of women to successfully land a frontside 1080, and with over 60 career wins to her name Clark continues to be the most dominate female in snowboarding history. In 2014 Kelly added her seventh Burton US Open win, her fifth Sprint U.S. Grand Prix tour title and her fourth World Snowboarding Tour title to her collection of wins.
Kelly easily qualified for her fourth-straight Olympic team, clinching her spot on the 2014 Olympic team after a second place at the Dew Tour and a win at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Copper. She went on to take two wins and a second place at the final three Sprint U.S. Grand Prix events at Mammoth Mountain. The Olympic veteran led the women’s competition in Sochi, and after a hard fall in the final, she landed a solid run and walked away with another Olympic bronze medal.
Sochi was one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done in terms of the contest conditions and a real pressure cooker situation, but it was one of my greatest victories. People want to see gold, but for me, getting bronze was a huge achievement to overcome those challenges.
