U.S. snowboarder Faye Gulini looks to finally reach an Olympic podium at the 2022 Winter Games, and NBC and Peacock will be there to capture it all.
These Games will mark Gulini’s fourth. The 29-year-old from Salt Lake City finished 12th in 2010 as a high school senior, just missed the podium in fourth at the 2014 Sochi Games and took 21st in 2018. More recently, she placed fourth at the 2021 World Championships.
Gulini has six career World Cup podiums, though has yet to win individually on the circuit. She has earned five of those six over the past three seasons, with the latest in December, a runner-up finish at the Cervinia World Cup in Italy. Last season, she recorded back-to-back runner-up finishes at another Italy-based World Cup in Chiesa in Valmalenco.
Facing perhaps the most talented field in her four Games appearances, Guilini will need a gutsy and precise performance to make the podium. The favorites are defending Olympic gold medalist Michela Moioli of Italy, reigning world champion Charlotte Bankes of Great Britain and 2014 Olympic bronze medalist Chloe Trespeuch of France.
When Gulini was 9, she served as a “Child of Light” extra in the Opening Ceremony of the 2002 Salt Lake Games being hosted in her hometown, and attended several events.. Around the same time she began snowboarding, and eight years later was back at an Opening Ceremony marching in Vancouver’s parade of nations as an athlete.
