  • Tara Teigen - Snowboarding



     Calgary's Tara Teigen ended the 1996-97 season ranked number-one in the world in women's halfpipe on the FIS World Cup circuit. One of the most consistent riders internationally, Teigen traditionally delivers solid runs in every event she enters. "Consistency is very important in this sport and that's a key to Tara's success," said Canadian national team halfpipe coach Colin Blake. "She hardly ever falls." Blake feels a conservative approach could be the key to winning a medal . "A lot of riders are perfecting new tricks but I think it's pretty important not to risk things too much. Especially in the qualifying rounds." Teigen, 22, scored a World Cup victory at Whistler, B.C., to lead a Canadian medal sweep and was also fourth at the World Cup final in France.
