This morning Jenny Jones landed Team GB’s first medal at Sochi in the slopestyle. Not only did she take home a bronze, but Jenny’s name is added to the record books as the first british athlete to win a medal on snow at the Winter Olympics. After blazing a trail for snowboarding in the UK over the last 12 years Jones was due to retire from the sport, but the inclusion of slopestyle at the Winter Olympics for the first time ever kept her on the mountains. Hopefully her Olympic medal is pay off enough for that extra hard work, grit and determination!
