Callan Chythlook-Sifsof

  • Sport: Olympic Snowboarding
  • Nation: United States of America
  • DOB: February 14, 1989
  • Hometown: Gridwood, AK
  • Career Highlights: Chythlook-Sifsof tore her ACL in the first race of the 2009 season, but that didn't stop her from recovering to qualify for the U.S. team alongside reigning silver medalist Lindsey Jacobellis and Faye Gulini. Chythlook-Sifsof had a breakout season in 2008, earning a silver medal at the World Junior Championships in Italy. Perhaps her most significant moment came in the last leg of the Jeep King of the Mountain tour, where Chythlook-Sifsof won the race to become the tour’s overall champion. She, along with Jacobellis, won the Lake Placid World Cup, and - in true Olympic spirit - tore off their uniforms to showcase 1980s U.S. hockey jerseys, a remembrance of the young Olympic team that beat the heavily favored U.S.S.R. and went on to win gold in Lake Placid.
