  • Career Highlights: Griffall, 25, hopes to make his second Olympics appearance in Vancouver. Griffall and Dan Joye finished eighth in men's doubles at the 2006 Turin Games after narrowly defeating Patrick Quinn and Christian Niccum in a race-off for the American's last men's doubles team. With Brian Martin and Mark Grimmette crashing in Turin, Griffall and Joye were the top American finishers there. Griffall now races with Matt Mortensen, and the pair took ninth in men's doubles at the 2009 world championships in Lake Placid. Griffall, who grew up near the Utah Olympic Park, began sliding as an 11-year-old after learning that Salt Lake City won the right to host the 2002 Olympics.
