Jones claims bronze for Team GB

Jenny Jones won Great Britain's first medal at the Winter Olympics in Sochi after earning bronze in the women's snowboard slopestyle event.

At 33, Jones was the oldest entrant in the final, but she showed her experience with her best run of the week on her last attempt.

Her score of 87.25 briefly put her top of the standings and although she was overtaken by Finland's Enni Rukajarvi (92.50), who took silver, and gold medallist Jamie Anderson (95.25), her third-place finish is a wonderful achievement.

Jones' bronze on the second day of the competition is Britain's earliest medal in the Winter Olympics, and is also their first ever on snow.
