Lindsey Jacobellis wins 10th X Games title in photo finish

Lindsey Jacobellis extended her female record for X Games gold medals — Summer or Winter — with her 10th snowboard cross title on Sunday.

Jacobellis, 30, outleaned Czech Olympic champ Eva Samkova in a photo finish after passing Samkova midway down the course under falling snow.

“I could hear you,” Jacobellis told Samkova, who got the hole shot out of the start, afterward in the finish area. “I was like, no, go away.”
