U.S. Olympic gold medalist Jamie Anderson received what she said was “the most precious” letter from an elementary school student named Leanne. It even had a lucky penny for Anderson to rub for good luck.
Leanne sent the letter on January 21, a few weeks before Anderson won the gold medal in the inaugural slopestyle snowboarding event in Sochi.
