K Hansen

Keltie Hansen competed in her first Olympic Games at Sochi 2014 where she finished 13th in the Olympic debut of ski halfpipe, missing a spot in the final by just one placement.

Hansen made her debut at the FIS World Championships in 2009 as a 16-year-old. The next year she won silver in slopestyle and finished fifth in halfpipe at the 2010 FIS World Junior Championships.  Hansen would have a very successful season in 2010-11. She finished a career-high fourth in the world rankings of the Association of Freeskiing Professionals, in large part due to her bronze medal at the FIS World Championships and her victory at the AFP World Championships, where amongst the competitors she defeated was the great Sarah Burke.

The 2012-13 season saw another first for Hansen. She earned her first World Cup podium, finishing third in Sochi at the Olympic test event.
