Lindsey Jacobellis

Lindsey Jacobellis took first place for the Snowboardcross Cup here on Sunday with her teammate 17-year-old Faye Gulini. Off to the Olympics they go! Lindsey is the one in blue pants.


Somehow I manage to never get a picture of her face, but here is Lindsey Jacobellis at the 2007 Jeep King of the Mountain in Telluride. She is one of my snowboarding daughter's favorite athletes, so it was very exciting when Lindsey and some of the others held a school assembly for the kids to ask questions. The only thing we missed was getting an autograph.
The USSA Boardercross World Cup will be on NBC Sunday (tomorrow) morning.

I must be old, because I couldn't name leading snowboarders. When I was in college and learned to ski, there was no such thing as snowboarding.

Good for them! «Louis» would provide comic relief if you saw him attempting this. There seems to be a basic and insurmountable incompatibility between skis and hooves...
