Olympics: Salt Lake’s Gulini named to snowboardcross team
First Published Jan 25 2014 10:53 am • Last Updated Jan 25 2014 11:41 pm

Snowboardcross rider Faye Gulini of Salt Lake City was named Saturday to the U.S. Olympic Team for the upcoming Sochi Games in Russia, after a sixth-place finish at the Winter X Games in Colorado.

The 21-year-old former Brighton High School student who now studies at Westminster College will be making her second Olympic appearance, after being eliminated in the quarterfinals at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

"I’m strong, healthy (mentally and physically), happy, and above all, confident that the goals I am working towards for this season will come to fruition," Gulini wrote in a recent blog for the Canyons Ski Resort.

Gulini’s best finish on the World Cup circuit this season was 10th place at Lake Louise, Canada.

She could wind up racing in Sochi against Australia’s Torah Bright, the defending Olympic halfpipe champion who also lives in Salt Lake City and is hoping to compete in all three snowboard disciplines - halfpipe, slopestyle and snowboardcross.

Bright is only an alternate in snowboardcross, however, so she would need others to drop out in order to land a starting spot.
