Olympic Snowboarder Kelly Clark: The Medal from Sochi

Posted: Updated:

Last month when she was here, Kelly Clark told us she would come back and see us right after the Winter Olympics and bring her medal. Here is Kelly after winning the Bronze Medal for snowboarding at Sochi.

Kelly Clark joins Steve Edwards and Lisa Breckenridge on Good Day L.A.

Fun Facts About Kelly Clark:

1) She is a snowboarder born in the village of West Dover in the town of Dover, Vermont. She has been snowboarding since she was 7 years old, and began competing in 1999. She became a member of the US Snowboard team in 2000, and later won a gold medal in the Winter Olympics.

2) In 2007/2008 she finished World No.3 on the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour and in 2008/2009 Kelly finished World No.1 on the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour.

3) Kelly Clark trained for competitive snowboarding at Mount Snow Academy in Vermont and graduated in spring 2001. She won a gold medal for women's halfpipe at the 2002 Winter Olympics and competed in the halfpipe event again in the 2006 Winter Olympics. Her last run started off in spectacular fashion; however, she missed a landing later in the run and ended up placing fourth behind fellow Americans Hannah Teter and Gretchen Bleiler, as well as Norwegian Kjersti Buaas. In the 2010 Vancouver Olympics Kelly won a bronze medal in the halfpipe after placing third behind American silver medalist Hannah Teter and Australian Torah Bright.
