SOCHI SCENE: Jacobellis rides with Ms. Hepburn

February 16, 2014

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Breakfast at Lindsey’s?

Lindsey Jacobellis made her way down the snowboardcross course Sunday morning with some company. Audrey Hepburn, to be exact.

That’s the name of her snowboard.

The American snowboard star puts a twist on the guy riders’ penchant for naming their boards after girlfriends (and ex-girlfriends). She names hers after some of Hollywood’s classiest ladies.

The board she’s leaning on for the Olympics goes by Audrey Hepburn.

And waiting just offstage if Audrey’s act gets old: Sophia Lauren and Elizabeth Taylor.
