Don’t just dream it, do it.
That’s clearly been a mantra professional snowboarder and Blenders athlete Jessika Jensen has held dear throughout her career—and this week, her resolve paid off in a ridiculously huge way.
Jessika will have the distinct honor of representing the United States for Snowboard Slopestyle and Big Air at Pyeongchang, South Korea for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
As you can imagine, Jessika is stoked. Here’s her Insta update from three days ago upon hearing the news:
“I am so honored and privileged to be able to represent Team USA in Pyeongchang, South Korea for Snowboard Slopestyle and Big Air! I want to thank my family, friends, fans, sponsors, and community for your support in my journey to making the Olympics!”
Although she’ll be doing her thing in Pyeongchang during the 2018 games (ranging from February 9th through the 25th), this isn’t Jenson’s first rodeo. She was a Team USA member at Sochi 2014 for the Slopestyle event, where she placed 13th.
In fact, the 26-year-old, Idaho Falls product has a wealth of professional success under her belt outside of the Olympics. After first shredding the slopes at the tender age of ten, here’s a quick peep at her career highlights:
World Championship Accomplishments
Personal Top Finish, 5th Place, Big Air (2017)
6th Place, Slopestyle (2017)
Years of participation: 2013, 2015, 2017
Additional Career Highlights
6th in slopestyle in 2015 FIS World Cup Standings
4th in slopestyle, 6th overall in 2016 FIS World Cup Standings
2nd at the 2016 Mammoth Mountain U.S. Grand Prix of Snowboarding
We’re pretty damn positive Jenson is poised to take the next big step of her career at these Winter Games. Jessika, congratulations from the Blenders fam!
