Sochi 2014: 10 Things That We’ve Learned About the Olympics so Far


Torah Bright coming in for the hug as she congratulates Jenny Jones on her bronze medal.

Torah’s decision going into these games to try and take on three disciplines – slopestyle, halfpipe and boardercross – might have seemed like madness to some, but to her “they’re all just snowboarding.”

While her best chance of a medal might be in the pipe, watching her ride the slopestyle course is surely one of the best moments of the games. Along with Jamie Anderson, Enni Rukajarvi and of course our own Miss Jones she was one of the few women who looked completely at ease on the admittedly massive course, and the run she stomped – while not technical enough to get her on the podium, was big, clean and super-stylish.

Torah was smiling throughout the competition, even when she fell.

Unfortunately she didn’t manage to hold onto the 900 on her second run that would’ve put her in podium contention, but it was rad that she went for it. And the best thing about it all? She never stopped smiling the whole way through.
