Hannah Teter won gold in her 2006 Olympic halfpipe debut and immediately did something with it. She started Hannah's Gold maple syrup, which benefits an impoverished village in Kenya. Fast-forward four years and her follow-up Olympic performance added silver to her collection. She took a step back from the competition scene in 2011, making only one appearance at the Burton U.S. Open, where she took second. She then rocketed back in 2012 with bronze at X Games in Aspen. In 2013 Teter soared to second at the Burton U.S. Open, fourth and fifth at X Games Tignes and Aspen, and managed to take fourth in the World Snowboarding Tour’s halfpipe ranking, a four-spot improvement from last season. Fully immersed in the competition circuit, Teter has proven she is ready for Sochi.
