Jessika Jenson will be attempting to find the podium for the first time in her second Winter Olympics appearance when she hits the slopes at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games in South Korea.
Jenson was a member of the U.S. snowboarding team at the 2014 Sochi Games, but failed to medal.
This year, Jenson, who is one of five Mormon athletes that will be competing in the Winter Olympics, is hoping to reverse her fortunes.
“Knowing I’m a two-time Olympian is mind-blowing,” Jenson said, via the Post Register. “I’ve been able to fulfill two dreams now. I think we had 12 girls who met the criteria for Olympic qualifying. In 2014, I gave it my all. This year, I would say it was harder because we had such a big field.”
“My whole plan for South Korea is I want to put down the best run I can do. When you’re out there, you’ve got to live in the moment. You can’t get caught up in the outcome.”
Jenson is joined on the women’s slopestyle/big air team by Jamie Anderson, Julia Marino, and Hailey Langland.
The 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea take place from Feb. 9 – Feb. 25.
