It’s been a really good week for Jamie Anderson. Not only is she in PyeongChang with her fellow Olympians, but she’s already scored a gold medal in slopestyle. If you wondered, “What is Jamie Anderson’s net worth?” while you were watching the games, you’re definitely not alone. After all, this is her career. And at just 27 years old, she’s already accomplished so much. Ready for the answer? Hold onto your snowboard, because it’s a lot.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Anderson is worth an estimated $4 million, give or take. Her shiny new gold medal is only going to add to that number; the Team USA website states that all athletes who manage to win will be awarded a $37,500 prize per gold medal, with smaller prizes for silver and bronze. Not too shabby, right?
And it’s not just the Olympics that contribute to Anderson’s yearly payout, either.
She competes in other events, year-round, and she’s also managed to score several cool sponsorships with companies like United Airlines, Audi, Proctor and Gamble, and Polo Ralph Lauren (those are just the ones she’s been a part of this year). No big deal.
Oh, and here’s a fun fact: Anderson’s win on Monday now officially makes her the first female snowboarder in history to win two gold medals in the Olympics, per NBC’s coverage. That’s pretty impressive in itself…and it sounds like that hefty paycheck is definitely well-deserved.
Now that Anderson is bringing her second medal home, it looks like that net worth of hers might just be going up. That has to be an amazing feeling. What’s better than making money while doing something you love?
