Seeing victories like British snowboarding champ Jenny Jones make it ok that we have lost our life to the Sochi Winter Olympics.

The 33-year-old made history over the weekend becoming the first Brit ever to win an Olympic medal competing in a snow sport after picking up Bronze for snowboarding.

We Brits are fine when it comes to the ice, having picking up 22 medals over 90 years in ice events - but snow based activities have always eluded us due to our lack of snow we imagine. But no more.

Jones took Bronze taking her into the history books, after having learnt to snowboard on a dry slope in Bristol before being a chalet maid.

As if that wasn't enough - she did at the age of 33, a massive six years older than the other contestants. Age and geographical location are no match for sheer determination.

We salute you Jenny Jones.
