Women’s snowboard cross Olympic preview: Lindsey Jacobellis seeks first gold medal

Women’s boardercross gets its turn in the Olympic spotlight Friday in PyeongChang (Thursday night in the U.S.), and U.S. snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis is among the favorites once again. Jacobellis, now a four-time Olympian, is the most decorated woman in snowboard cross history, but she is still seeking her first Olympic title. The fact that she hasn’t already won a gold medal can partly be chalked up to spurts of bad luck and youthful exuberance, but Jacobellis has a chance to erase all the narratives and rewrite her own history in PyeongChang.
