Olympic snowboarder Hannah Teter has a World Vision

Gold medalist Hannah Teter is heading to the 2014 Olympics for her third games. She won gold in 2006, silver in 2010 and now has her sights set on Sochi.

Hailing from Vermont, she grew up riding at Okemo Mountain and attended the Okemo Mountain School in Ludlow, Vt. She burst onto the scene at 15 at her debut in the Olympic halfpipe at the 2006 Torino Games. Since then, she has been a creative source of snowboarding and charity.


Teter has taken snowboarding to Africa, and her maple syrup company, Hannah's Gold, is out to raise $500,000 in partnership with World Vision to bring clean drinking water to Kirindon, Kenya.

"My goal from the beginning was, if I ever hit it it big I would give back," Teter said during the USOC Olympic Summit in Park City, Utah. "And that continues to be my goal moving forward."

She is a golden girl with a worldwide impact and finding the podium in Sochi won't be easy, but don't count her out.
