U.S. Snowboard athletes have walked away with three awards at the 2014 ESPY Awards.

Olympic champion Jamie Anderson (S. Lake Tahoe, CA) won Best Female Action Sports Athlete and Best Female U.S. Olympian.

Sage Kotsenburg (Park City, UT), who opened the Olympics winning gold in slopestyle snowboarding’s debut, won Best Male U.S. Olympian.

“So stoked to get my ESPY! It all seems so unreal still. Being in the audience with all those athletes that I look up to was awesome. I am so thankful for everything. Thank you to everyone that made this happen by voting,” said Kotsenburg.

U.S. Snowboarding was a well-represented sports organization at the 2014 ESPY Awards with four Olympic athletes nominated in five categories.

Sochi Olympians Kelly Clark (West Dover, VT) and Kaitlyn Farrington (Bellevue, ID) also received nominations.
