You become what you think about all day long - Earl Nightingale
"Since entering into snowboard contests in 2018, and joining elite training teams for the first time in my life, I have travelled to National, Continental, and World Cup races.
The Olympic year is on the horizon and with it brings many new opportunities for races and competitive training."
In the 2020 season, Kennedy surpassed the minimum World Cup criteria and finished 9th overall in North America
Kennedy hosted a LIVE Stream event and Silent Auction through trellis.org/journey-to-olympics on Saturday September 11th. The event was successful in raising funds for some pre-season costs. Kennedy invites you to cast your vote in an ongoing Podium Prediction Poll.
The Podium Prediction Poll is a fun way to raise funds and build momentum towards Kennedy's goal of winning gold at the Olympics. Kennedy has been training as a snowboardcross rider for a short 3 years & would love your help in making it to
World Stage Podiums.
Do you think Kennedy could win Gold, Silver or Bronze this season?
"I'm currently located in Whistler, Canada after 6 weeks of pre-season training in Europe.
I completed three training blocks. First in Saas Fee, Switzerland where I had access to an sbx track, followed by some freeride & carving training in Hintertux, Austria. Finally in Pitztal, Austria, where I was expected to compete in the Pitztal Europa Cup, as a final criteria to obtain my World Cup spot this year. Unfortunately Austria went into another lock-down which canceled the race.
As I prepare for the NorAm Cup, Whistler's training grounds allow me to expand on technical skills and receive coaching.
I feel fortunate to grow a community of supporters and share in the highs and lows of becoming a professional athlete.
