Five Women to Watch in Snowboarding

Jan 28, 2008

If you haven't heard of these snowboarding sistas you will very soon! Kidzworld gives you five names you need to remember!

Lindsey Jacobellis

For a lot of people, Lindsey Jacobellis is best known for falling near the finish line at the 2006 Olympics. But the 22-year-old is proving she is anything but a choke job. In 2007, she won the FIS World Cup and won the snowboarding cross competition at the 2008 X-Games. Her win marks her fourth gold medal at the X-Games. No question, at Lindsey's young age, she will be dominating the comp for years to come!

The Karlinski Sisters

If you find yourself seeing double on the slopes you probably are! Teenage sisters, Jordie and Teddy Karlinski, are possibly the future of women's snowboarding. The Aspen, Colorado siblings have already started to make noise! Jordie, who is a college freshman, won a gold and silver medal at the USANA Nationals. She also took fourth place in the snowboarding cross event in last year's X-Games. Teddy, who is a year older, was a slopestyle finalist at the 2007 New Zealand Burton Open.

Jamie Anderson

At just 17 years old, Jammin' Jamie Anderson is one of the sports' fastest rising stars. After winning the slopestyle event at the '07 X Games, this high school senior became the youngest snowboarding gold medalist at the event. Like the Karlinski sisters, she also has a younger star snowboarding sister, Joanie. They are the first sisters to win a Winter X Games event. Count on hearing more and more about Jamie and Joanie in the near future!

Claudia Fliri

Although Australian snowboarder, Claudia Fliri, has been boardin' professionally for 10 years, she has started to get some shine this past year. The 23-year-old Aussie, has won the big air event at the 2007 Australian Open and placed second in slopestyle at the '07 New Zealand Open. She can knock down 720s with ease and is currently working on pulling off a 900 very soon in competitions!

Zoe Gillings

Zoe Gillings is by far the best snowboarder in the UK. At just 22, this British babe not only has a rad name but is also a snowboarder on the verge of breaking out. She won the World Cup when she was a rookie in 2004 and competed in the 2006 Olympics. She is starting to come into her own and her reckless riding style is a big hit with fans. Watch out for her to make headlines in upcoming X Games and Olympics!

It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
