Jamie Anderson made the most of her Winter Olympics debut at the 2014 Games in Sochi, and she will be looking to once again find her way to the podium when she hits the slopes in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
The 27-year-old snowboarder won the gold medal in 2014 in the first-ever women’s snowboarding slopestyle event.
She has also won gold at the Winter X Games in slopestyle a whopping five times — 2007, 2008, 2012, 2013 and 2018. Anderson added a gold medal in the dual slalom at the 2017 Winter X Games.
Despite her success on the slopes, Anderson continues to compete with enthusiasm; the same fire that allowed her to be successful from the very beginning.
“At the end of the day, it’s snowboarding. We all started it because of the fun it brings and how much joy it is being out there on the mountain with your friends. It’s like playing, you know? We’re pretty much snowboarding on a playground up there,” she said in a previous interview in the New York Times.
Anderson is joined on the women’s slopestyle/big air team by Julia Marino, Hailey Langland and Jessika Jenson.
The 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea take place from Feb. 9 – Feb. 25.
