Cousin Jamie Wins 2nd XGames Gold

Sunday, January 27th, 2008 · No Comments

Big congrats to my cousin Jamie, who won the XGames XII Women’s Slopestyle event yesterday in Aspen for the 2nd year in a row! There’s a story and great video of Jamie’s winning run on the official EXPN site. And there’s also a story about her win in the Aspen Times.


There’s definitely some fierce competitive spirit and athletic prowess in my family’s DNA — as witnessed by the ABMGC 2007 ’cause, you know, growing a ‘stache requires both competition and athleticism.

Seriously, though, last year both Jamie and her sister Joanie — who’s also on the U.S. Snowboarding team — won gold medals in the XGames. Their home resort is Sierra-at-Tahoe, so you can see more about Jamie and Joanie and a cool video of them and my aunt Lauren on their profile pages (Jamie’s page | Joanie’s page). Jamie was also featured in a snowboarding movie, which was released last year, called LA LA Land.

I last saw Jamie and Joanie (and siblings) in October for our big family reunion / my Dad’s 60th birthday party. Here’s a picture of the three of us with our other cousin Lucy (all our dads are brothers):


Congrats on the win, Jamie! You rock and make us Andersons proud!
