Despite being the winningest snowboarder of all-time, for 15+ years Kelly struggled with self-esteem as she searched for a treatment to address her severe recalcitrant nodular acne, a painful and embarrassing condition that impacts the self-confidence and socialization of thousands of teens and young adults each year.
Kelly says that finally treating her condition has given her new enthusiasm and confidence. In fact, she partnered with ABSORICA® to develop tools to help others who may be searching for a solution as she had been. She vlogged before, during and after her 5-month treatment journey so that others would understand what is required.
Kelly Clark is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished and respected snowboarders in the world. She is the winningest snowboarder in the history of the sport and continues to dominate as she sets new records and achieves new heights.
Born 1983 in Newport, Rhode Island, Kelly took to the mountain at age two and began snowboarding at age seven. By 1999 she was actively competing in snowboarding and the next year joined the U.S. Snowboard team, winning the gold medal in the women’s half-pipe event at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Since that time, Kelly has won every major event in snowboarding; holding more than 70 titles and achieving 140 podium finishes, including:
– ONE Olympic Gold medal
– TWO Olympic Bronze medals
– NINE “X Games” Gold medals
– EIGHT U.S. Open wins
– SIX U.S. Grand Prix Tour titles
– FOUR World Snowboarding Tour titles
At age 32, Kelly remains at the top of her sport and shows no signs of slowing down, as evidenced by her 2015 ESPY for Best Female Action Sports Athlete.
Through her Kelly Clark Foundation, she continues to give back to the sport by providing resources and opportunities to youths wishing to achieve their highest potential through snowboarding.
Kelly is a true champion.
