Jamie Anderson competes in the women's slopestyle snowboarding final at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games on Feb. 9, 2014.

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia -- Jamie Anderson has given the United States a sweep in slopestyle snowboarding at the Sochi Olympics.

Anderson soared her way to gold medal in a near flawless run in the women's final on Sunday, a day after Sage Kotsenburg captured in the men's gold medal.

Enni Rukajarvi of Finland took silver and Jenny Jones delivered a long-awaited medal for Britain with her bronze.

Anderson, who expressed concern about the difficulty of the course during training, posted a score of 95.25 on her second run fueled by big air after big air at tricky Rosa Khutor Extreme Park. She flipped her right mitten into the air after landing her final jump and clasped her hands over her face when realizing she'd won.
