Jenny Jones’ Slopestyle Bronze Medal Told in 15 Tweets (& 3 Instagrams)

An outpouring of emotion for Britain's first ever Olympic medal on snow

It was a massive weekend in Snowboarding, especially for Team GB winning their first ever medal on snow courtesy of Jenny Jones. These are the tweets from the lady herself, team, commentators right through to superstars Andy Murray and Simon Pegg, plus a typically rubbish ironing board analogy form Irish music mogul Louis Walsh.

Jenny Jones won Bronze in women’s slopestyle – she was understandably delighted!

Some of the commentators couldn’t quite hold it together…


In fact there were tears all round


Ed Leigh needed two tweets to do it justice


Downhill MTB champ Rachel Atherton showed her appreciation

As did Olympian Jessica Ennis Hill

And Wimbledon winner Andy Murray!!

Simon Pegg filming in Japan for the next Mission Impossible likes a little snowboarding himself

Louis Walsh was there with a lame joke

Huge roars at the podium

Time for a celebration

Which had already been happening most of the day

Things clearly got a bit lopsided

But Jenny awoke as the nation’s sweetheart

Well done Jenny!
