Olympic crush: American snowboarder Jamie Anderson

Four years on from winning gold in the inaugural women’s slopestyle event at the Sochi Games, snowboarder Jamie Anderson was back on the podium with another gold medal in PyeongChang. The back-to-back medals made Anderson the first female snowboarder to win more than one Olympic gold medal. Although she’s already made history in PyeongChang, Anderson may not be done yet. The 27-year-old California native will also be competing in the final for big air.
