Olympian Says She Snowboarded Before It Was Cool

Snowboarder Kelly Clark captured her 3rd medal competing in her 4th straight Olympic games in Sochi.

On "New Day" Tuesday, the 30-year-old athlete remembered the sport before it was "cool."

"There was no X-Games, there was no Olympics. When I was 14 year's old I had one of those moments where I watched the first time snowboarding was even in the games, I said 'This is what I want to do with my life.' And four years later I won Olympic gold in Salt Lake and I've been here ever since."
