QUOTES Jamie Anderson I don’t even have words! I really lifted my last jump and I knew that I needed my frontside 7 in my run, but I was having a hard time with it during training. I knew it was important to spin four ways and I am so thankful to be here. This is such a nice personal redemeption for me and this is what I wanted to do. The course was really fun too.
