  1. A classic rookie move

    Kelly Clark

    I first met Gretchen Bleiler at a training camp for up-and-coming young athletes put on by the U.S. snowboarding team. These days they're called Project Gold, but back then it was just rookie camp or something. When Gretchen and I went for the first ...

  2. Dropping back in

    Kelly Clark

    I'm in Vail, Colo. for the U.S. Open this weekend. My luggage, not so much. And since my snowboard is part of that luggage, I didn't get to practice yesterday! Thankfully I just talked to a friend who happened to be at the Denver airport, and he dug ...

  3. Pressure makes medal sweeter

    Kelly Clark

    Sometimes it's easy to focus on the colors of medals, but what it comes down to is the personal victories and what I accomplished to get there. I was proud of my bronze in Vancouver, and I'm proud of this one, too. To be able to perform under that pr...

  4. Ready for liftoff

    Kelly Clark

    Last month, I won the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix, which gave me unbeatable points in the Olympic Qualifiers and a virtual lock on Team USA. My goal was to go home for Christmas having secured my spot on the team, and I pulled it off. But it was...

  5. Olympic qualifying time

    Kelly Clark

    Our first day of practice in Breckenridge, Colo. was, to put it mildly, classically cold. It was minus-24 degrees, to be exact. Basically that means I wear everything I own. I have both hand warmers and toe warmers. And I have an expedition-weigh...

  6. Resting and recharging

    Kelly Clark

    Some of my competitors are still in New Zealand right now, getting time on snow, but I'm content to be at home in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., working on my fitness -- plus winterizing my house, watching movies and going to the park with my friends who hav...

  7. Right where I want to be

    Kelly Clark

    I spent a little time riding pipe in Mount Hood, Ore., where the U.S. snowboard team goes to train on snow over the summer, and it's no secret the Olympics are coming. The intensity is high and people have stronger emotions than normal. Everyone is w...

  8. Moving on to surf season -- eventually

    Kelly Clark

    I just got back home from France 15 minutes ago, so I'm pretty ready to crash, but I wanted to give the download from my season-ender at the X Games in Tignes. It was a tough contest, so I was psyched to walk away with the win. I was hoping to wo...

  9. Two epic competitions

    Kelly Clark

    You may not know this about Sochi, the site of next year's Olympic Winter Games, but it's actually a summertime resort. It's on the Black Sea, and it's where a lot of Russians take their vacations. There are even three kinds of indigenous palm trees ...

  10. Suspense around X Games gold

    Kelly Clark

    If you thought Saturday's X Games SuperPipe final was suspenseful to watch, I can tell you it was just as much of a nail-biter in person. In classic contest form it started snowing right when we were supposed to go off. It hasn't snowed much this who...

  11. I'm ready for Winter X Games

    Kelly Clark

    I began snowboarding when I was only 7, and I like to say I started before it was cool. There was no Olympics or X Games. They barely let snowboarders on the mountains! Back then, I was the only girl among a pack of guys. Now, you go on the mountain ...
