#WCW is the new social media trend that stands for woman crush Wednesday. Every Wednesday people post about their woman crush, so we have decided to jump on the bandwagon. This week we would like to salute our Yahoo Sports woman crush, professional snowboarder Silje Norendal.

Silje Norendal is one of the leading lights in women’s snowboarding. With a riding style that’s bringing together a combination of progressive tricks and smooth style, Silje managed to get on some of the biggest podiums of the snowboarding world. Last season she won her first X Games gold in Tignes, earning her the third place in the 2012/2013 Women’s Slopestyle World Tour Ranking.
