Jenny Jones Thoughts on Winning Bronze!
Mon 10 February 14
We are still getting over the fact that Britain won it's first Olympic medal on snow. Here is what Jenny Jones though of her success.
Jenny Jones speaking yesterday after receiving her medal and becoming Britain's first Olympic Snowboard Medallist
"The last few hours has been full of lots of emotions. Walking out on the podium was a fantastic experience. I never thought it'd be in this position when I was a chalet maid. I was cooking breakfasts and cleaning toilets and just snowboarding every day and having fun. At the beginning it was just about snowboarding and enjoying your sport.
How she got here!
"It's still sinking in the history part. Hopefully I'll be in a few pub quizzes now. I've been snowboarding for ten years and I've had different goals throughout that but this only came about two years ago.It's been rollercoaster two years with challenges and injuries, battling through that and being where I am today is a very good feeling."
On what happens next
"I'm going to enjoy this moment for a little bit. I'll keep snowboarding, I've a few more years left in me, but I'd like to go surfing first."
On finding out mother and father, Helen and Peter, were watching
"Once I told them I'd been selected, they asked me how I'd feel if they came to watch. I said it would be great but I didn't want to know, so they kept things quite quiet and it was great to see them.
On inspiring her team-mates
"I really hope that getting the bronze medal has pumped a few people up. I know the freestyle skiing girls were stoked and were all smiles and screams. In the next few days I'm looking forward to supporting those guys. And I'm really excited to see Woodsy and Katie Summerhayes in the ski version of my event. Hopefully it's game on for those guys now."
