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.
Griff has a son, Tyler, and a daughter, Mya. Other than sliding head first down icy chutes, Griff is a professional world-class acrobat, an established stuntman for film and television, a high school rugby coach and skeleton coach.
