American rider Jamie Anderson took first place in the women’s Snowboard slopestyle event in Tignes on Friday. She did this with a consistent run that scored 95.33 points.

This is the third gold medal in a Winter X Games event for the amazing 20-year-old Californian that has won almost everything this year, and comes on the back of her win at the US Open last weekend.

Her worst result this year was a third place in X-Games in Aspen in January! As the youngest women’s snowboard gold medal winner at an X event and the youngest ever medallist at the age of 15 back in 2006, Jamie has made a huge mark on Winter X Slopestyle and women's snowboarding in general.
