Lindsey is a 28 year old snowboard cross racer from the United States. Sochi will be her third Olympic games.
She is generally considered to be the best snowboard cross racer in the world and typically cleans up at the Winter X games (she’s won 14 X Games medals). When it comes to the Olympics, however, she seems to have a penchant for falling at the absolute worst times.
Her showboating in 2006 created this legendary Olympic moment.
This year she fell while leading in the semifinals.

Needless to say, Lindsey’s known for her hair (and you see lots of it in the photos below).
