Jamie Anderson overcame some wicked elements to defend her Olympic gold medal in women's snowboard slopestyle on Sunday (Feb. 11). The 27 year-old Lake Tahoe, California, native came out on top on a day when frigid temperatures and whipping winds took down a number her competitors.

And while she landed her backside 540 and frontside 720 to secure back-to-back gold medals — becoming the first female snowboarder to win two Olympic golds — it wasn't just her killer moves that landed Anderson on the podium.

No doubt you noticed that Anderson slipped her earbuds out just before she got ready to rip her medal-winning run, the sequel to her 2014 golden go in Sochi. The most-decorated rider in X Games slopestyle history began competing at age 10, and enjoys paddleboarding, yoga, mountain biking and running her environmentally conscious clothing company TRYE (To Respect Your Earth). Oh, all she does is win, and listen to awesome music.

It wasn't a surprise Anderson was blasting jams before grabbing the gold, given the high-octane playlist featuring Offset, Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage, Ayokay and Axel Thesleff she shared with Billboard a week before taking f for the 2018 games in Pyeongchang, Sough Korea. 

Check out her playlist below, as well as some fun Instas from Pyeongchang.
