Woman of the week

Have you met Miss Jones?

The coolest boarder we know, introducing Jenny Jones: Olympic medalist, snowboarding pro and ELLE's woman of the week.

Here are five things you need to know about the woman who's bringing home a bronze medal for Britain from Sochi:

- She's the first person in history to win a place on the podium for our country in the Winter Olympics.

- Jenny, who is 33, was over the moon when she found out that she'd reached third place. Her response to it all: 'It's ridiculous. That's me. From Bristol,' she said, shaking her head. Modest too? We love her already.

- She can seriously pull off a snowsuit.

- Just like us, she's partial to a selfie.

- Jenny began snowboarding at the age of 16 and has since won 3 X Games gold medals, one silver medal as well as her latest (and greatest) bronze Olympic medal.

Snowboarding success story? We think so. Three cheers for Jenny Jones ­we long to be half as cool as you are.
