Lindsey Jacobellis

  • Sport: Olympic Snowboarding
  • Nation: United States of America
  • DOB: August 19, 1985
  • Hometown: Stratton, VT
  • Career Highlights: Jacobellis is one of the most decorated snowboarders ever, but is still missing the Olympic gold that she had all but won at the 2006 Turin Games. Leading by a wide margin and cruising toward the finish in the gold-medal race, she tried grabbing her board on the last jump and fell. She wound up with the silver medal and later conceded she got caught up in the moment, was trying to put on a show, and messed up. Still, she has five Winter X Games gold medals and a record 19 World Cup titles, including one in January at Bad Gastein, Austria. One of her five World Cup wins last winter came at Cypress Mountain, the site of the 2010 Olympic snowboarding competition, where Jacobellis will be one of the favorites.
