After winning both selection events at the beginning of the 2017-18 season, Casey Andringa burst on to the World Cup scene, landing two top-10 finishes and securing his spot on the 2018 Olympic team. At the Olympics, Andringa finished fifth, the best finish for a U.S. man since 2010.
What are your pre-competition rituals/superstitions?
I listen to the Sound of Silence by Disturbed as loud as it goes, and then throw on some Green Day. As a joke we started this season holding some different crystals as a sort of good luck/vibe move, and it has turned into something that I really use before each competition run to remind myself that at the end of the day, we're just shreddin' some bumps.
