Two snowboarders take the dance floor! Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson revealed that she met her boyfriend, Canadian snowboarder Tyler Nicholson, dancing at a bar.
“My boyfriend and I met snowboarding in Colorado. He a little bit knew who I was, I guess and yeah, we met at the bar drinking and dancing, making out on the dance floor,” Anderson exclusively told Us. “We were friends for a handful of years and now we’ve been dating for a handful of years.”
“We spend a lot of time up in Whistler, kind of based there in Tahoe, so we’ll travel together and it actually makes this process so much more fun because I really have my best friend and my sidekick,” she continued. “I don’t get as homesick when I have my partner. He’s healing his knee right now, so I’ve been sad this summer traveling a little bit more solo, but good to reconnect with all the girls and have a little time for myself too.”
Anderson, who took home a gold and silver medal in PyeongChang, South Korea, earlier this month, also spoke to Us about maintaining a work-life balance with her busy schedule.
“Even when I get an hour to myself, taking full advantage of that time and doing whatever it is to help better me,” she explained. “Whether it’s going for a walk in this backyard of our hotel which I do once a day to kind of clear my mind, or eating really good … just having a good attitude. I write a lot. I’ve been journaling since I was 5, so I’ve got great stories from the last 20 something years.”
