Excelling at everything from lacrosse to soccer and golf, young gun Maddy Schaffrick's life revolves around sports. So it’s only natural that she finds her way onto the podium nearly everywhere she goes. The young gun's 2010 season landed her in the top 10 in each of the five Grand Prix Olympic qualifications and seventh in the overall rankings, just three spots from making the Olympic team – at age 16.
Unfortunately, that momentum was put on hold for 2011 due to injury, but she picked things right back up in 2012 with a second place finish at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain and a fourth at the Breckenridge Dew Tour. Those results earned her an invite to the X Games in Aspen, but unfortunately, a knee injury ended her 2012 season early. On the plus side, her injury allowed her to graduate from high school early.
Back on snow and feeling good in 2013, Schaffrick took third at her first competition back, the Dew Tour at Breckenridge. She was able to ride strong, put down solid runs and stay injury free for the rest of the season. Things are on the upswing for Schaffrick, so be sure to stay tuned.
