    Matt Griff saw a news story after the 2006 Olympic Winter Games about the sport of skeleton and thought, "I can run like that."  After looking it up online, Griff thought he was a good fit for the sport.  Griff began his athletic career as a gymnast when he was only eight, and later competed in rugby.
