The curly-haired snowboarding wonder Lindsey Jacobellis has just completed a successful three-peat at Winter X Games 14. This is not the first time the Olympian has pulled off the incredibly difficult feat, as she becomes the first Winter X athlete to pull off two different three-peats in the same discipline.

The win sets up Jacobellis with increasing confidence going into next month’s Winter Olympic Games to be held in Vancouver. It’s in Vancouver where Jacobellis will attempt to overcome some demons after blowing an Olympic Gold at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. It was there where Lindsey lost her gold after attempting a grab on the final course feature.
