With 6 months until she appears at the Pyeongchang opening ceremonies, Jamie Anderson is getting used to being first.
According to Team USA, the south Lake Tahoe resident recently won the debut slopestyle event for the 2017-2018 FIS world cup season at Cardrona Alpine Resort in New Zealand. Anderson called the venue “not the easiest course” but continued to dominate anyway. She was followed by Miyabi Onitsuka in second and hometown hero, Zoi Sadowski Synnott in thrid.
The win comes as Anderson’s 8th slopestyle victory on the world cup circuit since she began competing at the age of 14. She won olympic gold in the event in 2014 @Sochi.
