Sky Sports News' Geraint Hughes gives us his perspective on Jenny Jones' historic bronze medal in Sochi....
"When I woke up today I tempered my enthusiasm with regard to any chance of Team GB success - Jamie Nicholls in the men's snowboard Slopestyle on Saturday taught me that lesson.
However in the back of my mind I wished Aimee Fuller and Jenny Jones the best of British. I had a soft spot for Jones (no, not like that..!) We met about 10 days ago in Bristol, her home city and where I went to university many moons ago. So we spent most of the time reminiscing about Bristol and its plentiful pubs! Also she laughed when I told her about the state of my snowboard which I haven't had waxed or remotely looked after properly in years.
She was confident yet anxious then so goodness knows what she felt like at the Sochi 2014 Extreme Snowpark today, but she didn't half hold it together and produce a little bit of magic up in the mountains. I didn't have a good view of the park, and I couldn't see a scoreboard or hear the commentary well so was a bit in the dark at times as to how Jenny was doing.
But after the first run she was fifth so all was going okay, but she would have to pull something a bit special out of the bag for her second and final run.
The cheers said it all.
Technically perfect (well, to me it was!) and on this rare occasion the judges agreed - 87.25. I looked at my producer Lia and cameraman Simon. We all looked at each other mouths wide open. "She's in gold guys!" We kind of had to pinch ourselves, a Brit in gold position? No chance! I don't know why, but at this point my mind went a bit weird and recalled a French commentator from 1981 (yep, I know it's a bit random).
Back then in medieval times, Konrad Bartelski, a GB skier was in gold medal position in a World Cup event. He ended up with silver, but the French commentator said something along the lines of "no, no, this is not possible! He is an Englishman!"
I know it was a bizarre random thought, but I was thinking 'what's going on'? Team GB could win something here and it's a snow sport and the British aren't meant to be very good etc...
Jones was eventually displaced from gold and silver, but she won the bronze. I pride myself in my impartiality as a journalist and try hard never to say on air "we" when referring to Team GB and I certainly have not done that today.
But I can have my own private thoughts and in my head I was not only trying to get rid of the thought of Konrad Bartelski, but there was an inner smile and warm fluffy feeling that a good Bristol girl had done good...
If only Sochi had a Coronation Tap, I'd be off there ASAP."
