Y’ellow everyone! Welcome back for the women’s slopestyle finals!

Duthie: 
Torah Bright’s interview on BBC right now. Ed Leigh asks “why do slopestyle, halfpipe AND boardercross?” “Why not?” is Torah’s reply. So awesome.
9:11

I AM SO EXCITED!!! Well done Aimee. You rocked it. Jenny, bring it home! Team GB for the win!

Come on Jenny Jones! #Sochi2014 #TeamGB

sam haddad: 
Who else is everyone backing? Gonna stick my neck out and say jamie, torah & jenny for the medals, seriously hope I haven’t jinxed her! spencer and sarka will no doubt be in the mix too
9:14 

Duthie: 
Good call Sam, although after Sage yesterday it’ll hard to discount anyone. Jamie has the best chance I’d say.

Duthie: 
Over to the commentary team now, now featuring Aimee Fuller. Can she keep up with all their Patridgeisms?
9:15 

Sam: 
Women judges for the women’s finals? Is this a new piece of FIS judging magic?
9:15 
Nick

Come on Jenny. Do us proud lass #jennyjones #slopestyle
9:16 

Ed: 
Yep my heart says Jenny for gold, my head says Jamie Anderson will be tough to beat – especially based on the judging so far, which has been rewarding the ability to send it. Jenny Jones for the podium tho – but who knows, anything can happen!

Sam: 
I reckon Jamie and her everlasting smile might just have it Sam…
9:16 

sam haddad: 
Nice 540 to finish but shame the nerves for to Silje earlier on that first run
9:16 

Duthie: 
Silje Norendal, Run 1. Here we go!
9:16 

sam haddad: 
#jennyjones #jennyjones #jennyjones
9:18 

Duthie: 
MASSIVE 5 to finish, but she’s messed up her run yet again. Silje has it all to do in Run 2. Can she keep the nerves at bay?
9:18 

Sam: 
Going super deep on the last hit!
9:18 

sam haddad: 
SOLID from Jenny jones, showing her class and experience there
9:18 

Ed: 
Yes Jenny! A great start. Putting down a run so important.
9:19 

Sam: 
Jenny Jones up next for her first finals run – gap 5050, 5050 front one, good cab 5, back 3 and a solid front 7, first run down and its a good ‘un
9:19 

Duthie: 
Great start for Jenny, she can afford to step it up in her second run now.
9:20 

Sam: 
73.00 for Jenny, low score for the same run that scored her the high 80s in the semis
9:20 

Sina laid down a very similar run to Jenny, and she’s pleased with that.
9:22 

Duthie: 
Sina Candrian, run 1. Not a bad run, but similar to Jenny’s. 77.25, she’s in first!
9:22 

sam haddad: 
Love Sarka’s style
9:23 

Comment From Hannah 
so far the ladies are stomping it more consistently than the men were in the finals!
9:23 

Sam: 
Sarka Pancohaove the Shark Bite run 1 – she can go HUGE! Gap lip, 5050 front 1, sw back 1, front 5, big tweaked cab 5 and a sw back 7 to finish, massive run there!
9:23 

Andy Gibbons@andyffgibbons

Good run by Jenny Jones but got some tough competition to beat…

Sarka looking very smooth  
9:24 

Sam: 
That’s a better run than even Jamie Anderson has put down on this course so far… What score are getting? 86! Sitting in gold now
9:24 

Duthie: 
Now it’s Finland’s finest, Enni Rukajarvi, Run 1. She’s the first of the automatic qualifiers to drop.
9:24 

Ed: 
The level has really stepped up for the final. Everyone getting *something* down, very few falls. so far. It’s going to take something special to win today.
9:25 

Duthie: 
5050s and backside board slide on the rails. Big front 3, then miraculous recovery on the back 5 off the second kicker, then nice cab 5 to finish. Great score coming up no doubt.
9:26 

sam haddad: 
Really couldn’t call the result today, rad final so far

Enni Rukajarvi gets a 73.75

73.75 – ahead of Jenny Jones for now.

#fangram – Louise and Mike, who aren’t out here for snowboarding particularly, but are loving watching @aimee_fuller and @jennyjonessnow #wlsnow #backthebrits
9:27 

Sam: 
Karly Shoor run 1 – first of the yanks to go in the finals. big gap to noseslide, boardslide, back one off the cannon, sw back 5, back 3 japan and just made it over the knuckle of the third on her front three. Stylish though
9:28 

Ed: 
Karly Shorr adding a touch of Sage to her run with that tweaked out Japan on her second hit.
9:29 

Duthie: 
Yep, that back 3 Japan is pretty nice. The slo mo confirms it.
9:29 

Sam: 
39.00
9:29 

Duthie: 
Now it’s Spencer O’Brien, Run 1. Canada’s best hope now for a gold.
9:29 

sam haddad: 
Aimee Fuller: “They are BEASTS these jumps” yep so hard to get the scale on tv
9:29 

sam haddad: 
Spencer a big advocate of girls getting to jump the same courses as guys
9:30 
Savannah Clarke

Go @torahbright ! In #sochi. Wohoo so #awesome #winterolympics #2014 #snowboarding #slopestyle xx
9:30 

Duthie: 
Just sat down on the back 7 off the second jump. Shame, up til that point she’d been amazing. Gap to frontside boardslide, switch back 5… it was tight.
9:30 

Comment From Hannah 
back to back 7′s here we come, it’s Spencer O!
9:30 

Sam: 
Not quite but maybe on the second run eh?

Comment From Hannah 
so much good going down right now, ladies are showing the world!
9:30 

Mathias Helgesen

Kom igjen silje!! Vi heier på deg! @siljenorendal #slopestyle #finale #snowboard #ol #sochi #medaljehøsting #norway

There’s that Japan from Miss Shorr
9:31 

Spencer had her game face on at the start gate.  
9:32 

Sam: 
Elena Koenz run 1 – gapp zeach, 5050 tail, board slide then sending a underflip(?) too far, scratching out the landing
9:32 

A nice stalefish from Elena Koenz
9:33 

Sam: 
24.50 is the score, but Torah’s next…
9:33 

Sian Elin@sianth79

#bbcsport Aimee Fuller class commentary!

Duthie: 
It’s Torah time – everyone’s favourite Aussie is on course and about to drop. Here we go: Torah Bright, Run 1.
9:33 

James McKnight@willowism

This snowboarding gal Aimee Fuller seems really cool. She’s very good on the snowboarding commentary. #bbcsochi

James@jaymogee77

Superb event & Loving the commentary. #Slopestyle #WinterOlympics . Makes me wanna grab my board out of cupboard & ride it again.

Duthie: 
Rocking the gum shield once more…
9:33 

sam haddad: 
So much for love for Torah Bright, such a cool, classy and properly sound rider
9:34 

Torah Bright, first woman to land a 900 in this final
9:35 

Duthie: 
And THAT’S why everyone loves Torah. Solid rails including gap to back lip, then a cab 900 off the first trick! Back 3 and front 3 to finish – other than the hand drags, that was top drawer.
9:35 

Comment From Hannah 
wow wow wow and wow. Switch 9! What a legend.
9:35 

Sam: 
Not sure that cab 9 will score that highly with the hand drag likely to be punished but so sick to see something more than a 7 in a women’s event, yeah Torah!
9:35 

Whitelines@whitelinesmag

Chatting to @benkilner and @DomHarington about their first training session. The pipe is apparently MASSIVE and also needed a re-shape.

Ed: 
Thats’ great Trist but are you watching this final?!

Chyon

Lets go #Torah #sochi14 #aussiepride @torahbright @sochionten
9:35 

Duthie: 
“The smile that could help hen’s eggs hatch” – Another Tim W classic.
9:36 

sam haddad: 
She’s so mentally strong as well, make such a difference in this massive events
9:36 

Duthie: 
Perhaps he’d been egged on to do more?
9:36 

Ed: 
Here she is, Jamie Anderson. If I was a bookie, she’d be my favourite.
9:37 

Sam: 
Jamie Anderson run 1, likely champ? – Wookie steeze going on with her hair. Gap back nose, 5050 back 180, butter to 5050 back 180, cab 7 nose, sw back 5 and a front 7!
9:37 

Duthie: 
Jamie Anderson has so much style. Like Sage, she has the ability to even make that homeless-astronaut Team USA kit look good.
9:38 

Sam: 
Boom! Sketchy on the 7 so might not top the podium just yet…
9:38 

Sick nose grab from Jamie Anderson. #STEEZE
9:38 

Sam: 
2nd place for Jamie, clean it up and she’ll get the gold?
9:39 

Ed: 
Not sure I agree with Tim Warwood that that was the run of Jamie Anderson’s life. She’s got more in the locker.
9:39 

sam haddad: 
Agree Ed she’s just warming up

Duthie: 
Isabel Derungs, Run 1. Did the same butter trick on the cannon as Jamie but the difference in style was evident. the rest of her run’s not that clean either, although her trademark backside rodeo on the last kicker was awesome.
9:40 

Kate Allenby MBE@KateAllenby

Do these #slopestyle riders decide what they are going to do when they get there? Or is there a plan? Or is it just “go big?”

Sam: 
Would you hit a 20 metre jump without a plan?

Whitelines@whitelinesmag

He said “I think everyone will have sore backs this morning after all the flat landings. The guys have told the shapers the problem so l …

Duthie: 
85.50 for Isabel – she needs to do better.
9:41 

Isabel just earned a bonus from her sponsors.
9:41 

sam haddad: 
Interesting how much the judging in yesterday’s men’s final influenced the girls’ runs today
9:41 

sam haddad: 
Oh god
9:42 

Sam: 
Anna Gasser dropped to early! YES! Chaos on the start of the course as no one can climb back to the top!
9:42 

Duthie: 
Haha this is hysterical, although we’re feeling for Anna Gasser here. Worst preparation ever.
9:42 

Sam: 
Comedy moment, but you gotta question how unfair that is for Anna, composure might be blown a bit
9:42 

Duthie: 
That guy who came down to try and help her is definitely off the gulag tomorrow.
9:42 

“To me.” “To you!” The Olympic Games just went Chucklebrothers.
9:42 

sam haddad: 
Yeah heart racing, how do you re-compose your head and focus before your run now, feeling for Anna Gasser
9:43 

Duthie: 
Easy Like Sontag Morgen by Tim & Ed – surely tonight’s chart-topper.
9:43 

Sam: 
Anna Gasser, dropping again, still smiling… Run 1 – donkey appendage, boardslide, back 180, HUGE underflip and then sketched the front 7. Anna Gasser has a STRONG chance for a medal if she gets that run down
9:44 

Fair play – after that organisational cock-up at the start gate Anna Gasser was still smiling.
9:44 

helen@h_dempo

Can these 3 commentate on EVERYTHING please? #bbcsochi #slopestyle

Jamie Wood@JamieWood_Sky

The commentary on the #Sochi2014 #slopestyle makes Bill and Ted sound like Plato…
Andreas
Aha så det er dette som er #slopestyle. Ser pes ut
9:45 

Duthie: 
Definitely a Marmite reaction for the commentary team!
9:45 

Hattietty@Hatspin

Loving the kickass girls in the #slopestyle #Sochi2014 and apparently it’s in the rules to be hot and blonde!

Sam: 
49.00 for Anna Gasser, again the next one should be better. If she wins after that Chuckle Brothers moment it’ll be an astonishing victory
9:46 
suvi_sim

Girls rule the Olympics and that’s the fact. #slopestyle #snowboarding #entertaining #forgetabouticehockey
9:46 

Sam: 
Please keep these pictures of your breakfast coming in, we’re on tender hooks…

Duthie: 
Jamie Anderson is definite slo-mo material. She looks fantastic in the air.
9:46 

Neil Macmillan@flingstam

,#bbcsochi Aimee Fuller is possibly the best snowboarding commentator ever. Not bad for a first attempt.

GB’s Jenny Jones in fifth after the 1st round of the snowboard slopestyle final with 73 points, just 4.25 points off the bronze medal spot

TimTam@xxTimTamx

I am desperate to go pee but daren’t move before Jones second run! #Sochi2014 #slopestyle

Sam: 
Sarka Pancochova dropping for the second run very soon…
9:48 

Ed Davis@EdSDavis

@WildRenaissance if Jenny Jones does a faultless 2nd run might make 3rd if some slip – not bad as she was ranked 11th coming into the final

James Freeman@jimbotheyid

Are the qualifications for the “Women’s Slopstyle” having to be blonde and pretty? #slopestyle#WinterOlympics

Lälëh@_Laleh

awful #slopestyle commentary. why can’t they just speak normal and use real language? posh kids talking ‘street’ is so embarrassing. #cringe

Sam: 
Bare chuckles blad!

Penny Parker@Mummy_Parks

One advantage of very early morning is watching the amazing women’s snowboarding ..go Jenny Jones #bbcsochi

james hannigan@jimfiz81

This has to be best winter Olympic event #slopestyle

sam haddad: 
People asking if you have to be blonde & pretty to be a #slopestyle Olympian, it certainly helps you get sponsored in the first place so can be self-fulfilling in that sense
9:49 

Tootsa MacGinty@TootsaMacGinty

Sunday morning…coffee, toast & women’s #slopestyle #sotshi

Duthie: 
Silje Norendal, run 2….
9:50 

Ed: 
As Hazel Irvine just put it, a gold medal is about to be won.
9:50 

Sam: 
Predictions… Anna Gasser
9:50 

Ed: 
Jamie Anderson
9:51 

Duthie: 
Jenny Jones – keeping the faith!
9:51 

Duthie: 
Poor Silje didn’t have anything dialled in. Lots of little mistakes added up, and she’s down and out.
9:51 

Sam: 
That sucks Silje, was looking forward to seeing your front 7 rodeo on this massive scale
9:52 

That is a sad sight.  
9:52 

sam haddad: 
Predictions: Jamie Anderson but obvs rooting for Jenny
9:52 

Duthie: 
Fair play to Silje for going for the 270-off the first rail – only female rider going for that.
9:52 

Dan Poth@daniel_poth

Come on JENNY JONES

Ed: 
Silje Norendal never quite seemed relaxed at these Games.
9:52 

Sam: 
Jenny Jones run 2 COME ON JENNY! – awesome sw board, cab 5, back 3 huge front 7!
9:53 

Ed: 
YEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHH! That was very very solid. Stoked!
9:53 

Duthie: 
Solid!! but is it enough for a medal?!
9:53 

Sam: 
Everyone in the Whitelines ‘war room’ is stoked!
9:53 

Ed: 
How did Aimee Fuller not get as carried away as we just did?
9:54 

sam haddad: 
Super clean Jen, what a hero
9:54 

Duthie: 
The rail game was perfect for the first time – she stepped up when she needed to!
9:54 

Ed: 
Ed Leigh: “I can feel my pulse in my lower intestine.” Haha
9:54 

Duthie: 
It’s taking forever!!
9:54 

Duthie: 
Oh god, give us the score, please….
9:55 

Duthie: 
Still waiting….
9:55 

sam haddad: 
Arrgggh
9:56 

Sam: 
Clean clean run from Jones… Tense moments waiting for the score… Cheers… Unbearable… Come on… Pleeeeease put us out of our misery…
9:56 

Duthie: 
Something must be wrong. This is nuts.
9:56 

Sam: 
87.25 FIRST PLACE!
9:56 

Sam: 
YES JENNY!
9:56 

Duthie: 
YES JENNY!!!!!
9:56 

sam haddad: 
JUMPING UP AND DOWN!!!
9:56 

Sam: 
By a full point as well, this is gonna be hard to watch now…
9:57 

Duthie: 
Right, ten riders standing between Jenny and the gold…
9:57 

That wait was torture….!
9:57 

sam haddad: 
Agony for next 10 minutes
9:57 

Sam: 
But whatever happens now Jenny can rest assured she did her best
9:57 

Sam: 
Is that the 10 minutes it’ll take to get the next score Sam?
9:57 

But look at that! Yeeeees! Get in Jenny!
9:57 

Duthie: 
Sina Candrian, so styley in Run 2…
9:57 

Joshua Barard@JoshuaBarard

Smashing it Jenny Jones!!! ?#Sochi2014

sam haddad: 
Haha love to have been a fly on the wall for that chat
9:58 

Claire Wills@flunketina

COME ON JENNY JONES! #bbcsochi

Adamlaasna@Adamlaasna1

yessssssssssssssss, come on jenny jones

Duthie: 
And she stomps a frontside 1080 off the last jump!! The icing on the cake of a great run. That’s probably the leader now.
9:58 

Comment From Hannah

STOKED
9:58 

Comment From Guest 
And breathe lol go jenny! Loving Amiee in the comms box, awesome!
9:58 

Ed: 
We’re back to the style vs spin to win debate….
9:59 

Sam: 
Sick 1080 but a hand down? Not sure how the judges are gonna go…
9:59 

sam haddad: 
Team style
9:59 

Sam: 
‘I got it!’
9:59 

Ed: 
Jenny was super solid, landed like a boss. But Sina Candrian just landed a first – the 1080.
9:59 

Ed: 
Team Sage ;)
9:59 

Sam: 
Jenny Jones – hands in pockets in an Adidas tracksuit, representing the UK well there
10:00 

Duthie: 
That’s the first 1080 ever in women’s slopestyle competition – and the score is….. 87.00, she’s in second! Jenny leads!!
10:00 

Sam: 
Only .25 in it!
10:00 

Duthie: 
Wow, that will be controversial but the judges are being consistent. They’re rewarding clean execution over big tricks.
10:01 

10:01 

Sam: 
Sarka Pancochova now, run 2 – go clean. Gap noseslide, 5050 front 180, sw back 180 and then a huge crash, that’s not pretty…
10:02 

Sam: 
Medics over there quickly
10:02 

Comment From Hannah 
What what what what HISTORY in the making here. A 1080! NBD! Girls are literally progressing snowboarding by the second.
10:02 

carolefarish

Yes and on here 2nd run. Jenny is in first place. #teamgb #snowboarding #happy #slopestyle #sochi2014
10:02 

sam haddad: 
Ouch glad to see here sitting up there, well done Sarka
10:03 

Sam: 
HUGE slam
10:03 

Medics quickly on the scene for Sarka.
10:04 

Sam: 
Still riding down though, congrats Shark Bite
10:04 

Duthie: 
Great to see Sarka back up. Czech her out at the next games in 2018.
10:04

Sam: 
Girl in the sky shots now!

Sam: 
Women stepping it up now!
10:05 

Duthie: 
Emmi Rukajarvi dropping again, Run 2. She’s showing real Finnish style on the rails, then front 7 on the first kicker. Backside 5, then cab 7 to finish. No hands down, this could overtake Jenny.
10:06 

Wow – she actually smashed her helmet. That whole debate just went up a notch.
10:06 

Ed: 
Message from the judges: Go big or go home.
10:06 

Whitelines@whitelinesmag

Wow, they cut the live feed there – everyone thought she’d been knocked out. Massive relief!

Duthie: 
92.50 for Enni, and she’s the new leader!

sam haddad: 
Re helmet debate just to distract me from Jenny wait agony: course if you’re hucking you need one but if you’re just cruising should be up to the individual no?
10:07 

Duthie: 
We’ll need a whole other feed to discuss this properly Sam!

Duthie: 
Big hug from Jenny though, nice to see.
10:08 

Possible gold medal moment…?
10:08 
whitelinesmag

Once again it’s packed for the women’s slope final! Rowdy crowd. Good to see the Union Jack up there. #backthebrits #wlsnow
10:09 

Sam: 
Karly Shorr run 2, can she step it up? – gap board, 5050 stale, 5050 back 180, sw back 5, back 3 japan! Solid front 3 to finish, not sure if its a medal score though. Loving the style focus! Thanks Karly!
10:09 

Sam: 
75.00 ,not enough but we’ll see hernext time eh?
10:10 

Joona Lipponen
HYVÄ ENNI !!!! #shotsin#olymppialaiset#lumilautailun#slopestyle#enni#rukajärvi#1 :)
10:10 

That’s WL Deputy editor Tristan Kennedy in the bottom right – literally praying during the agonising wait for Jenny Jones’s score.
10:10 

Duthie: 
Spencer O’Brien, Run 2. Solid rails and a lovely switch back 5 , but butt-checks the back 7 and she’s done. Canada has to settle with one bronze in slopestyle, for Mark McMorris.
10:11 

Ed: 
Ed Leigh: “I’m in no way wishing riders ill but…” Yep, we’re with you Ed.
10:11 

Laura Hutchinson@laurahutch86

“Bonk off the barrel to downbar” ….this is some serious lingo. #slopestyle #GoJenny

Ed: 
Pop fact: Enni Rukajarvi did much of the stunt work for the Chalet Girl movie.
10:12 

Sam: 
Again there is gentle fist pump at the bottom… Elena Koenz scuffs her sencond rail in her second run but showcases her big, styled jumps for the crowd
10:13 

sam haddad: 
Surprised about Spencer. Sweet for Jenny tho, wish I was watching this on highlights so I could fast fwd
10:14 

Ed: 
Can’t handle the tension Sam?

Perfect Sunday morning #winterolympics #avoontoast #jennyjones #slopestyle
10:14 

Sam: 
Great. More breakfast shots

Duthie: 
Torah Bright, Run 2. She has a cab 900 in her wheelhouse. The question is, will she go for it, or concentrate on getting stuff that’s less tech but more stompable?
10:15 

sam haddad: 
Really can’t! Must be a zillion times worse for Tristan
10:15 

Ed: 
Butt check from Torah, that’s gotta harm her score!
10:15 

Duthie: 
Ooft! she went for the cab 9, but she fell and she’ll probably have to look to halfpipe and boardercross for a medal. The rest of her run was styley, though.
10:16 

Duthie: 
Big tweaked front 3, maybe the best of the day. 66.25 for her though, 7th place.
10:17 

sam haddad: 
Agree with Tim love how friendly the riders are with each other, don’t see that in the gym pit do you? Probably why most of them switched gymnastics for the shred!
10:17 

Torah Bright – one of the best front 3′s in the biz.
10:18 

Duthie: 
Jamie on course – Could it be two slopestyle golds for Team USA?
10:18 

sam haddad: 
That looks so good
10:18 

Ed: 
That’s gold I reckon.
10:18 

Sam: 
Jamie Anderson, could she knock Jenny down to third? Run 2 with that crocodile smile – gap boardslide, 5050 back 180, buttery cannon combo, cab seven nose, huge sw back 5 and a front 7! Bam!
10:18 

Ed: 
Absolutely buttery smooth from Jamie Anderson.
10:19 

Duthie: 
How much of a penalty for the hand down at the end? Probably not enough to deny her the top spot.
10:19 

Sam: 
Sorry, CORKED sw back 5! So sick there Jamie!
10:19 

Ed: 
I’m sorry but THAT is how you snowboard. I love Jamie’s style.
10:20 

Sam: 
95.25! Gold!
10:20 

Sam: 
…for now…
10:20 

Duthie: 
Jenny on the bronze now, which is fair. She’ll need to hope the last two to drop don’t get their act together.
10:20 

Sam: 
Jenny Jones in bronze, riding the medal bubble
10:20 

Duthie: 
“I’ve lost the ability to use my arms”, says Tim. But thankfully, not his voice.
10:21 

95.25. Boom!
10:21 

Sam: 
Oh shhiiiii…. must of hurt her face there
10:21 

Duthie: 
Isabel Derungs, Run 2. OUCH. She slips off the cannon and face plants the knuckle.
10:21 

Ed: 
Only one rider stands between Jenny Jones and bronze.
10:21 

sam haddad: 
Love the shameless Team GB commentary, one more rider, tacks on the course anyone, loosen her bindings…
10:21 

Duthie: 
We’re big fans of Ms Gasser, but if she nicks the medal from Jenny we’ll be gutted.
10:22 

Sam: 
Anna Gasser CAN do it, but will she?
10:22

How freaking good are these snow boarders !!! Jenny Jones can u do this bronze? #Sochi2014#bbcsochi

well done Muffin

Paul James@paul18280

One to go Jenny Jones … Good luck girl its meant to be I hope….. #bbcsochi

Duthie: 
Anna, of course, landed the first ever cab double under flip to be done by a woman. Will she risk it in the final Olympic run? It could give her the gold…
10:23 

sam haddad: 
It was a Hollywood script that super rubbish Chalet Girl film
10:23 

Duthie: 
If nothing else, she’ll have a better start than the farce on Run 1!
10:23 

Sam: 
Anna Gasser starting at the right time, run 2 – 5050, 5050 front 1, back 180 cab under and then stacking the front 9!
10:24 

Sam: 
Jenny jones has a bronze!
10:24 

Ed: 
SHE’S DOWN!!!! Jenny jones gets the bronze!
10:24 

sam haddad: 
GET THE HUCK IN!! YES JENNY JONES!!!!!!!!!
10:24 

Duthie: 
Jenny has an Olympic medal!! Couldn’t happen to anyone more deserving, she gave it everything she had to be here.
10:24 

Sam: 
First GB snow bronze and its a snowboarder, not a damn downhiller! Stick that in your (half)pipe and smoke it Ski Sunday
10:25 

Duthie: 
Get used to being fawned over by the BBC Jenny…
10:25 

Sam: 
USA gets the slopestyle double
10:25 

Ed: 
Jenny Jones just crowned her career. OK, Jamie Anderson got a deserved gold but as a British snowboarder this is huge news. Our first medal on snow in any sport, like, ever.
10:26 

Sam: 
And a Fin in second
10:26 

Duthie: 
Another gold for Team USA, yes, and it’s well earned. Jamie is the standout rider of her generation.
10:26 

Sam: 
Tears in the commentary box!
10:26 

Ed: 
Tim warwood is crying OMG

Praying that Jenny hasn’t used any Vicks inhalers in the last few weeks. We don’t want another Alain Baxter situation.
10:28 

En route to bronze. #focused
10:28 

Ed: 
Jenny drew on all her years of competing there. Not for nothing she has 3 X games gold medals. Likewise Jamie Anderson has won just about everything before today. Experience counts.

Wahay! Legacy. Cemented.

Jenny jones won an Olympic medal and she doesn’t even know her parents are in the crowd ?#emotional

Nice shout out for Lesley McKenna at home about to give birth, she didn’t just pave the way by competing at the Olympics but her coaching and advice have made Jenny Jones & Aimee Fuller the riders they are today for sure
10:36 

Duthie: 
Very true. Hats off to Lesley.

Duthie: 
So please for Jenny’s parents – they had a lot to do with this win, no doubt.

Duthie: 
Oh, she’s clocked that her parents are here, and there they are! Great scenes from Sochi, and Jenny’s waterworks finally start flowing.

Hazel Irvine tears in her eyes – What?! Don’t think this even happened at London 2012. Snowboarding has definitely won hearts and minds here in Sochi.
