ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (AFP) - Veteran Jenny Jones made history on Sunday as she won Britain's first-ever Winter Olympics medal on the snow.
Jones, 33, claimed bronze in the women's slopestyle snowboarding competition after a second-run score of 87.25, behind Jaime Anderson (95.25) of the United States who won the gold and Finland's Enni Rukajarvi (92.50) who took silver.
The competitor from Bristol had made a name for herself earlier in the week by revealing she used to keep a tea bag in her bra as a good luck charm.
Although that has long since been abandoned, her luck, seemingly, did not run out.
