After recently dying her hair blonde, Anderson now has a gold medal to match her golden locks. Needless to say, she makes snowboarding look good.

The Lake Tahoe product also takes an interesting approach to prepare for her contests. Prior to the slopestyle finals, she was lighting candles and listening to yoga tapes.

After messing up the landing on her first run, Anderson needed to stick her second run to claim gold; and that’s exactly what she did at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park.

Anderson represents what dreams are made of (Olympic and otherwise). Want to see more? Then checkout this slideshow dedicated to the recently-crowned Olympic champion.
