Thank you for visiting my site. My name is Kelsey Card and I am in my second year as a professional discus thrower. I competed for Team USA in the Rio 2016 Olympic games where I finished as the top American. I grew up in a small town in southern Illinois called Carlinville. I currently train at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, which is also my alma mater.

 I created this website to share my activities and training as well as offer resources and engagement opportunities.

Check out my Blog (and sometimes videos) where I post weekly updates about my training and life.

I started the Traveling Elephant in 2017 as a fun way to share my adventures.

I also post pictures of the awesome places I get to travel to as a professional athlete.
