Meet Jamie Anderson: Photos of Olympic gold medal snowboarder

Team USA snowboarder Jamie Anderson lived up to the hype in Sochi, throwing down a beautiful run to win gold in Slopestyle. It was the first Olympic medal for the South Lake Tahoe native, and also the first Slopestyle gold in history.

The 23-year-old has medaled every year since 2007, except for one (2009), in Slopestyle at the X Games.
