Pro Halfpipe - Snowboarding

A five-time Olympian and three-time Olympic medalist, Kelly Clark is a trailblazer, mentor and dominant force in halfpipe snowboarding. She continually pushes the innovation and amplitude of her riding to new heights, making history and setting new records in her wake. In 2011 Clark became the first woman to land a 1080 in competition and is still one of a only a handful of women to successfully land the trick. With over 70 career wins to her name, Clark is the most dominant competitive snowboarder in history, male or female.

When you're not snowboarding, what are you doing for fun?
Road biking, surfing, hanging out with friends, watching movies or reading. I also spends a lot of time fundraising for the Kelly Clark Foundation, which gives opportunities to youth and helps them become successful through snowboarding.

What is your favorite memory as a competitor?
