About Jenny Jones
Just to put Jenny Jones' achievement into some perspective: Great Britain have only won a single medal at each of the last two Winter Olympics and only seven in total at the last seven Games. Never before had a Briton won a medal on snow.
Jenny Jones is a Slopestyle specialist who has led proceedings on the world stage for the past 7 years, having won 3 X Games Gold medals, (she is the first UK athlete to win an X Games gold medal), amongst countless other top snowboard titles.
Jenny first got into snowboarding after taking a free half hour lesson at the Avon dryslope. She then worked in the French Alps as a chalet maid in Tignes so she could snowboard every day. After a couple of seasons she became a professional snowboarder and since then she has been competing at the top international competitions.
Outside snowboarding, Jenny loves surfing, travelling round Cornwall and Devon in her van and spending time with family and friends.
