  3. Ending the season with a bang

    Kelly Clark

    I'll always have a special place in my heart for the Burton U.S. Open. Until two years ago when they moved it to Vail, Colo., it was only nine miles away from where I grew up in Vermont. So I think it's safe to say I have more appreciation for those ...

  5. 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...
