Hometown: Bellevue, Washington
Olympic Outlook: Kaitlyn barely made the US team with a win at the final Mammoth Grand Prix stop, where she beat Kelly Clark. With tricks like a rarely seen switch backside 720 to backside 900, which got her third at the 2014 X Games, she's one of the more technical riders in the field.
Potential Downfall: Amplitude doesn't factor much into Kaitlyn's winning runs--it's more about the tech tricks. But the judges give bigger points to riders who are boosting, so her distance from the deck could keep her scores lower.
