Kelly Clark wins again, secures spot on Olympic team

MAMMOTH LAKES, Calif. – Kelly Clark has made the U.S. Olympic team by winning her second halfpipe Grand Prix event of the season.

The 2002 gold medalist defeated 2006 gold medal winner Hannah Teter on Wednesday to give her victories in the first two U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix events, which are being used to determine the team that will represent America in Vancouver next month.

Danny Davis defeated 2006 gold medalist Shaun White on the men’s side, with Scotty Lago coming in third. Davis and Lago are friends with Kevin Pearce, who was injured during training last week and remained in critical but stable condition at a Salt Lake City hospital with a brain injury.

White won the first qualifying event, last month in Colorado, and along with Davis, is in good position to make the U.S. team.
