Olympic Outlook: With three back-to-back wins at the Mammoth Grand Prix stops Jamie is America’s number one hope for Olympic slopestyle gold. From rails to jumps she’s so in control that falling doesn’t seem possible—few other women spin as smoothly or with as much confidence as Jamie. Her switch backside 540 to backside 540 to Cab 720 combo have been pretty unstoppable and if she adds in the Cab 900 she was working on at the Grand Prix, she’ll just be that much more out of reach.
Potential Downfall: Anna Gasser is one of the only women who could do a double cork in her Olympic slopestyle run and if she puts one down it will be tough for Jamie to top. And Silje Norendal just beat Jamie at the 2014 X Gamess with two 720s in her run, so Jamie still faces some stiff competition.
