She took bronze in Slopestyle at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. In the first time the event has been held at the Games, the 33-year-old former student of The Ridings at Winterbourne and Filton College took third place.
The Mayor of Bristol George Ferguson has suggested throwing a special homecoming event for the bronze medallist. And Cllr Ian Boulton, the chairman of South Gloucestershire Council also sent her good wishes, tweeting: “Congratulations to Downend girl @jennyjonessnow from all of us in South Glos.”
Jenny, who now lives in Backwell, has won many big air and slopestyle competitions including three X-Games gold medals in a row between 2009 and 2010.
