Though Jamie Anderson made her X Games debut as a racer when she was 13, since moving to the terrain park she has medaled in all eight X Games Slopestyle contests she's entered. Four of those medals are gold. Like Kelly Clark, Anderson is the most dominant female competitor in slopestyle. Her Olympic gold in Sochi was no fluke -- it would have been a shock if she didn't win.

"Jamie doesn't even look like she tries," says Olympic Slopestyle silver medalist Ståle Sandbech. "It's just so easy for her. Her back tail on the rails is better than all the boys."
