In the first-ever Olympic slopestyle snowboarding competition, the gold medals went to two Americans: Sage Kotsenburg for the men and Jamie Anderson for the women.

Did you watch any of the slopestyle snowboarding this weekend? What did you think of this new (to the Olympics) event?

It was ok. The men's tricks were exciting. My dd thought the girls should be flipping too. Lol

One of the ladies did a double back flip, which wasn't something I saw from the men either! I can't remember her name, but she was British and had a gymnastics background... You should see if you can find video for your DD! :-)

Did you see the girl who cracked her helmet when she fell? Oh my goodness. I loved the event overall, but that was so scary.

It was crazy to watch the competitors who were already injured go for it

Yes, and it didn't really surprise me that we did so well. Extreme sports are very popular, almost a way of life here! We don't to anything in moderation! Skiing...extreme, French fries...super sized ;). We do things big! Hahaha
