Meet US Snowboarder Kaitlyn Farrington as she goes for halfpipe gold (Photos)


Kaitlyn Farrington is making her Olympic debut at the age of 24. Farrington will be competing in Women’s Snowboarding Halfpipe in Sochi. She claimed the bronze medal in Superpipe at the X-Games in Aspen in January.

Farrington grew up in Idaho but these days she can be found in Salt Lake City, Utah. Five wriest surgeries have not deterred Farrington who became the first women to land a 900, and she has already used that maneuver in Sochi.
