Winter Games Athletes
One of two teenagers on the US men’s side along with Tucker West, Kelly claimed the final spot on the team by edging out Taylor Morris. He has had an uneven rookie season on the World Cup circuit, failing to finish two of the six races thus far, but did place 14th in Winterberg, Germany. Kelly also placed 21st in Whistler, British Columbia and Lillehammer, Norway, 29th in Oberhof, Germany, and 30th in Igls, Austria. In order to get more prep work before the Olympics, Kelly is participating in the final two Junior World Cup events and placed 11th in Oberhof. The 19-year-old Kelly had two top-10 finishes in the Junior World Cup during the 2012-13 season, highlighted by a sixth-place result in Lillehammer, Norway, and won bronze medals in both Norton Seeding Races. He also was the 2013 Norton Junior National Champion.
