Five more snowboarders clinched spots on the U.S. Olympic team at the final parallel giant slalom qualification meet Thursday in Austria.

Chris Klug, an 1988 Olympian, and Peter Thorndike made the men's alpine team, J.J. Thomas made the men's freestyle team, while Lisa Odynski and Sondra Van Ert will compete for the women. Selection was based on a rider's two best results in five designated races.

Klug is touted as a top medal hopeful.
