    4-Time Olympian Kelly Clark Inspired by Tom Brady

    U.S. snowboarder Kelly Clark knows what it’s like to compete with the best despite being one of the oldest in the sport. It’s no surprise that she takes inspiration from NFL quarterback Tom Brady, who continues to excel with the New England Patriots despite his many years in the league.

    Kelly Clark qualified for her fifth Olympics with a victory in the season's final halfpipe qualifier.

    The 34-year-old Clark, who has an Olympic gold and two bronze medals, finished one spot ahead of 17-year-old Chloe Kim on Saturday night. Kim had already made the U.S. Olympic team and was not attempting her most difficult runs, which include back-to-back 1080 jumps.

    Maddie Mastro finished third and also secured her spot. Arielle Gold finished fourth and is a good bet to pick up a discretionary spot. Gold was on the 2014 Olympic team but separated her shoulder in training and didn't compete.

    Chase Josey won the men's event to strengthen his chance at picking up America's final halfpipe spot.
