Will the third time be the charm for Jacobellis? The snowboard cross star, who infamously fell after showboating and settled for silver in Torino and got disqualified in the semifinals in Vancouver, is chasing the elusive Olympic gold medal that is missing from her trophy case. She missed nearly two years after tearing her ACL in January 2012, but came back with a vengeance, winning her eighth Winter X Games gold last month.
