Jamie Anderson had one hell of year in snowboarding.
Anderson won the Burton US Open, Winter X-Games in Aspen, X Games Norway, as well as the US Snowboard Championships in Yabuli, China. Yet after all those awards, perhaps nothing matched her the star-time moment when she received the ESPY for Best Female Action-Sports Athlete at Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
