Shaun White and Lindsey Vonn weren’t the only snow sport athletes taking home some new hardware at the ESPYs last night, as Australian snowboarder Torah Bright added another shiny gold item to her trophy case last night, picking up the win for the year’s  “Best Female Action Sports Athlete.”

This latest award comes in addition to the Olympic gold medal Bright picked up at the 2010 Winter Games after her amazing halfpipe run.

Bright’s stellar snowboard season allowed her to edge out some seriously tough compettion from the likes of fellow Olympic champion Ashleigh McIvor, and Winter X Games Women’s Ski Superpipe champion Jen Hudak.
