Five-time Olympian Lindsey Jacobellis won gold in women’s snowboard cross, claiming the first gold medal for the U.S. in these Olympic Games. Jacobellis defeated 2014 Olympic bronze medalist Chloe Trespeuch of France and two other riders in the women’s final to win the title. Canada’s Meryeta Odine won bronze.
At 36 years old, Jacobellis is the oldest American woman to win a Winter Olympics medal of any color in any sport. She is also the oldest snowboarder in Olympic history to win gold.
Jacobellis’ pursuit of gold has spanned nearly two decades beginning with the 2006 Games. In Torino, Jacobellis was on pace for a gold medal until she attempted a trick on the second-to-last jump, only to fall and lose to Switzerland’s Tanja Frieden. She has competed in every Winter Olympics since, finishing within the top seven in each Games. Outside of the Olympics, Jacobellis has collected five individual world titles and 10 individual X Games wins.
She can now finally add Olympic gold medalist to her resume.
