Jamie Anderson and Tyler Nicholson have something to celebrate ahead of the 2022 Beijing Olympics!

The Team USA snowboarder, 31, revealed during a segment on Today on Monday that she and the Canadian snowboarder got engaged.

Anderson also shared a video of Nicholson, 26, dropping down on one knee to pop the question to his longtime partner in the place that makes the most sense: the snow.  

The exciting news comes shortly before the two-time Olympic gold medalist – who won the inaugural snowboard slopestyle event at the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014, and again at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in 2018 – will compete in Beijing for this year’s Winter Olympics.

“I’ve come a long way and I have deep appreciation for everyone who has supported me over the years! I wouldn’t be where I am today without the foundation of a strong family, community and support team. You know who you are, I love you!!!” she wrote in part in an Instagram post reflecting on her successful snowboarding career.
