Despite the fact she has won so much in snowboarding, the Olympic gold is still unreachable for Lindsey. The American failed in her both participations in 2006 and 2010. The most interesting case is from 2006 Turin Olympics. In the Snowboarding cross final, she had a huge lead over the second Tanja Frieden. Just before the finish, Jacobellis – who at that time was simply enjoying her race – performed unnecessary method grab. In result she fell and was passed by Frieden, but at least recovered and took the silver medal.
After falling in both previous Olympics, Lindsey Jacobellis competed in her third Games at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. And once again, she was the U.S. favorite for the gold, but fell in the semi-finals and ranked sixth overall.
