In an exciting victory for the United States Jamie Anderson won a gold in Olympic slopestyle, reported ESPN on Feb. 9, 2014. She shared the excitement of her victory as she stood on top of the podium and lifted her arms in triumph, with her long quest for Olympic glory finally realized. The enthusiasm was infectious as Anderson soared to victory in a nearly perfect run in the women's final on Sunday.

Anderson, a native of South Lake Tahoe in California, at 23 years old has become the greatest slopestyle snowboarder of her generation. She commented, "I was really just trying to stay calm and kind of reserve my energy. It was a lot of stress up there and even though it's just another competition, the stage and the outreach that this event connects to is out of control." Anderson didn't crack for a moment from the pressure and did whatever she had to do to win.

After Anderson won the women's snowboard slopestyle event at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, she said, "I'm so happy. It was fricken' mind blowing. What a day," reports USA Today. She was a favorite to win going into the event, after having finished first or second in 20 of 24 events she has entered in the past three seasons. Anderson was really passionate and determined to win the gold and she did a spectacular job doing just that.
