U.S. snowboarder Jamie Anderson defended her gold medal from the 2014 Sochi Olympics by nailing her first run in the women’s slopestyle final with a score of 83.00.

To top it off, 17-year-old American snowboarding prodigy Chloe Kim became the youngest female athlete to win a gold medal in snowboarding as she dominated the competition in women’s halfpipe with an incredible score of 98.25 and Arielle Gold, 21, won the bronze.
