  1. 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...

  2. Excited that it's finally here

    Kelly Clark

    It's time! I'm just getting my life wrapped up before I leave for Sochi in the morning. It snowed about a foot here today so I've been shoveling, packing and mailing checks -- you know, basic life stuff! The X Games went really well for me last...

  3. Ready for liftoff

    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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. The calm before X

    Kelly Clark

    After being on the road for what seemed like forever, I had about a week where I was able to relax and decompress at home in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., before I headed to the X Games in Tignes, France. So, what did I do? I kept myself busy with ...

  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 ...
