The athlete won the women’s snowboarding slopestyle competition, topping Enni Rukajarvi of Finland (silver) and Jenny Jones of Britain (bronze).

The 23-year-old from Lake Tahoe, Calif. was understandably ecstatic — and emotional — as she celebrated at Russia’s Rosa Khutor Extreme Park.

The win marks the second gold and a slopestyle sweep for the U.S., following Sage Kotsenburg’s first-place finish in the men’s event on Saturday.

Team USA is now tied with the Netherlands and Norway.
