Caught Up … With Jamie Anderson
By Christy Chaloux
How does it feel to be an Olympic hopeful?
Ha, it feels good :)
What is your training regime? Like how many push ups do you do per day?
I just started working out with my trainer last month, but I’m on a pretty intense program, five days a week … feeling strong!
How has your focus changed now that you have graduated high school and don’t have that distraction?
Well being in school in general is always a bit stressful, add traveling six to eight months of the year, and it gets super stressful! But now that I’m graduated, I feel like I have so much free time to do what I want and learn about things I actually want to learn about! I love it! My focus is right where I want it and—I’m stoked!
What’s your plan for winter?
I’m trying to do all the Grand Prix/Olympic qualifiers, Dew Tour’s and the X Games … and try to shoot in between!
What are you thinking about as you drop into a slope-style run?
God, please help me land and stay safe! And I’m almost always rocking out to good music!
Do you get nervous?
Describe the feeling at the end of your run when you stop all of your tricks?
I heard that you’re member of a gang called the One Life Crew, tell me a little about it.
We’re all just super good friends! Bev Vuillimier, Marie-France Roy, Chanelle Sladics, Kjersti Buass and I. We always live life to the fullest, and during one trip to Vermont we just kinda called ourselves the one life crew … easy way to get your friends to do something random or fun… c’ mon one life! Let’s go out! Haha.
