Ralph Lauren rolls out buffalo plaid for Team USA in Beijing

Jamie Anderson, a two-time gold medalist snowboarder, is thrilled with Ralph Lauren's parade look as she prepares to attempt a three-peat. She also holds a silver medal.

The 31-year old told The Associated Press that she was simply commenting on how comfortable the jacket was. It just feels great. Like, quality. They'll last forever which is amazing.

The jacket's inner pocket was a big hit.

Anderson spent her pandemic year in Whistler Canada, where she was based. Anderson was able to get back into snowboarding, mountain biking, and skateboarding during this downtime.

She said that Beijing doesn't have the best snow, but she advised that you work with what you do have and try your best. "Hopefully, the snow gods are going to deliver."

She'll be skiing at the Genting Resort Secret Garden, Zhangjiakou City.

Aja Evans was a bronze medalist in Sochi 2014 and she retired from bobsledding after competing in Pyeongchang 2018. However, she couldn't resist.

Evans, 33 years old, said that in retirement he needed to step back and figure out who he was as a person. "So much of my adult lives was tied to my Olympic journey. It's easy to get confused about what you want to do."

She said that she would like to continue working with children in the south side Chicago community as she pursues her passion.

Evans stated, "I want inspire and to uplift."

She said that she loves the plaid and the uniforms. It gives me a ski resort vibe.

Ryan Cochran–Siegle, a skier who competes in alpine is going to his second Olympics to try and win his first medal. According to the Vermonter, skiing is part of his DNA.

"My entire family was skiers growing up. My grandfather owned a small ski area with a tow rope, a T-bar and a small tow rope. He said that I was the youngest cousin and that we all grew up enjoying it.

According to the 29-year old, the plaid speaks to home.

Cochran-Siegle smiled, "Yeah Vermont has a lot of plaid." "I have quite a few flannels."

For slopestyle, she’ll head to runs she can’t wait to try at the Genting Resort Secret Garden in the mountain town of Zhangjiakou City.

Bobsledder Aja Evans, who earned bronze in Sochi in 2014, retired after competing in 2018 in Pyeongchang, but she couldn’t stay away.

“In retiring I needed to take a step back and just figure out who I was as a person,” said the 33-year-old Evans. “So much of my adult life had been tied to my Olympic journey, and you get a little kind of confused as far as what you want to do.”

What she wants to do, she said, is continue to work with the children in her community on the south side of Chicago as she lives out her passion.

“I want to inspire and uplift,” Evans said.

As for the uniforms, she said: “I’m loving the plaid. It gives me a sort of ski resort vibe.”

Skier Ryan Cochran-Siegle, who competes in alpine, is heading to his second Olympics in search of his first medal. Skiing, the Vermonter said, is in his blood.

“My whole family, we were all skiers growing up. My grandfather had a small little ski area, just a tow rope and a T-bar. I was the youngest of my cousins and we all just kind of grew up loving it,” he said.

The plaid, said the 29-year-old, speaks to home.

“Yeah, in Vermont we have a good variety of plaid,” Cochran-Siegle smiled. “I have a good number of flannels.”
