U.S. snowboarder Jamie Anderson brought home America's second Sochi gold medal today in the same event that delivered the first.

A day after Sage Kotsenburg cruised to victory for the U.S. in Slopestyle snowboarding — an event making its Olympic debut this year — Anderson completed the American sweep.
