Jamie Anderson built a reputation as one of the best female snowboarders in the world.

Known for her snowboarding style and strength, Jamie gave the United States a gold-medal sweep in the debut of Olympic Slopestyle competition at the 2014 Sochi Games.

She soared to victory in a near flawless run to make history for the United States as the first ever women’s Olympic Slopestyle Gold Medalist.

On a day when harsh winds played havoc with almost every rider’s runs, Anderson fell too. But it didn’t matter. She brings home the Gold yet again at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games

“My attitude with contests and with even training or shredding on any given day is learning to adapt to the weather and just doing your best in any given conditions,” Anderson said.
