Just a day after Sage Kotsenburg won the gold medal in men’s snowboard slopestyle, American Jamie Anderson shared a similar victory on Sunday. As reported by USA Today on Feb. 9, Anderson completed the U.S. sweep in the event by winning the gold in the women’s slopestyle.

Like Kotsenburg, Anderson can now enjoy the rest of her time in Sochi as she delivered a strong run on the extreme course at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park. As a favorite heading into the event, Jamie Anderson did not disappoint. Her emotion poured out as she was announced the Olympic champion.

I’m so happy. It was freckin’ mind blowing. What a day,” she shouted.

A native of South Lake Tahoe, California, Anderson had a lot of pressure on her. She has not finished first or second in 20 of 24 events that she has entered. Poise was a key ingredient in her victory.

“I was really passionate and determined to come out here and do my best and do everything I can to be my strongest and most grounded, calm self, even with the hype of everything on the outside world.”

The feeling is overwhelming and something she can’t explain, but the joy in her eyes told the story. Jamie Anderson has won the gold at the Sochi Games.
