BIO
KK Clark’s earliest Olympic memories are of admiring the likes of Michelle Kwan and Kerri Strug – but at 6-foot-2, she’s a little too tall for figure skating or gymnastics. Instead, she rode horses competitively and played soccer and basketball before dropping it all for water polo. She even played professionally in Rome for periods of time.
