There’s cute, and then there’s “second grade fan mail” cute.
Today we’re going to discuss the latter level of preciousness, which American Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson recently received in the form of a letter from a young fan.
According to Mike Foss of For The Win, Anderson posted a picture to Twitter Tuesday morning showing a handwritten message she received from a young fan named Leanne.

Dear Jamie Anderson,
I’m so proud you made the Olyimpic team! I’ve been reading about you and you are really amazing! I learned that you like biking. I like biking, too. I hope you go high and do lots of tricks and do a really good job and do a nice job on the usa team. You are really good at Slopestyle Snowboarding. Rub the penny to get good luck.
The star- and heart-bedecked letter came true. Anderson did “go high” and “do a nice job on the USA team.”
The 23-year-old X-Games champ brought home the hardware on Sunday, taking first in the women’s slopestyle at Sochi and helping the U.S. complete a gold-medal sweep in the event’s inaugural year at the Winter Olympics.
We can only presume that Anderson’s success took a bit of skill, dedication and a helping of good juju from a young fan named Leanne.
Perhaps the two will meet one day and go on a bike ride. I mean, they both like bikes! Sounds like a no-brainer to me.
