Jasey-Jay Anderson jumps, jibs and jams better than any snowboarder on the planet. The Canadian is one of the leaders on the 2001 Snowboardcross and Parallel Giant Slalom tours and now he's got his eyes set on an Olympic gold medal.

Jasey-Jay learned to snowboard on the slopes of Mont Tremblant in Quebec. Jasey-Jay soon rose to the top of the snowboarding world and picked up several victories on the world tour before competing for Canada in the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan. He was the leader after the first round of the giant slalom but in the second round, Jasey-Jay fell and ended up a disappointing 16th.

Jasey-Jay won the 2001 World Cup Alpine title and the Boardercross (BX) title in 2001, which has made him one of the top ranked boarders in the world. He'll compete for Canada again at the 2002 Winter Olymics in Salt Lake City in the Snowboard Parallel Giant Slalom (PGS.) PGS is a head-to-head matchup on a giant slalom course where racers battle against each other, rather than the clock. "I know I'll be prepared for the Olympics but I always question whether I'll be prepared enough. So when I go to bed at night after every practice or before every event, I always make sure I've done everything I can to be completely prepared," he says.

Even though he's qualifed for the Olympics and is focused on winning in Salt Lake City, Jasey-Jay is still racing on the BX tour. "I still race because it keeps me on edge. I don't worry about getting injured because you can't race scared," says Jasey-Jay, who has never had a major injury. He's hoping that good fortune stays with him this February in Salt Lake City.
