Two-Time Olympic Medalist Kelly Clark and Czech Snowboarder Sarka Pancochova Join Team iON

Clark -- the Most Dominant Competitor in Snowboarding -- and Pancochova Will Shoot/Share Their "Road to Sochi" Experiences Using iON Air Pro Cameras

BRECKENRIDGE, CO--(Marketwired - Dec 12, 2013) - (Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships) -- iON America, the company that brought Shoot/Share™ Wi-Fi connectivity to point-of-view (POV) cameras, today announced that two Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics hopefuls, two-time US Olympic medalist snowboarder Kelly Clark and Czech snowboarder Sarka Pancochova, have joined Team iON, the growing roster of pro athletes using iON cameras.

Clark is considered the most influential female snowboarder in the world -- with more wins under her belt than any other male or female snowboarder in history. She will be using the new iON Air Pro 3 Wi-Fi to share her unique perspective, providing a first-person view of her innovative, high-amplitude tricks with legions of fans.

"I'm pushing myself with new tricks heading into the 2014 season," Clark said. "At this week's iON Mountain Championships, I'll be shooting and sharing clips of practice runs using the new iON Air Pro 3 Wi-Fi. I love this little camera; it is really simple to use, making it that much easier to share my experiences as the season progresses."

Clark is competing at the Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships in Breckenridge, held December 12- 15, for a position on the 2014 US Olympic team. She is joined by Czech snowboarder Pancochova as the newest members of Team iON, along with returning members: US snowboarder Scotty Lago, US freeskier Nick Goepper, and UK freeskier James "Woodsy" Woods. The event serves as the first official US Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) Olympic team selection event of the 2013-14 season, and the first-ever USSA selection event for freeski slopestyle, freeski superpipe and snowboarding slopestyle disciplines.

Also returning to Team iON for 2014 are non-snowsport pro athletes BMX dirt biker Corey Bohan, big-wave surfer Reef McIntosh, freestyle motocross biker Clinton Moore and skateboarder Manny Santiago.
