On Monday we told you how excited we were that Aimee Fuller had met the FIS and Team GB selection criteria booking her place at the Winter Olympics 2014 in Sochi next month and today we got official confirmation that Aimee Fuller and Jenny Jones, (who we also knew was in) had made the team. Stoked!
Aimee Fuller posted this awesome Nathan Gallagher pic (with proper game face on!) to her facebook and twitter with this message:

While Jenny Jones (pictured above with one of her three X Games Medals, will she add an Olympic Gold to the stash. We’re truly hoping so!) posted this:
Just found out I officially made the GB winter Olympic team. Whoop! #happyface #slopestyle #snowboarding http://t.co/FoieAXjEfB

The British media is of course frothing over the downhill skier Chemmy Alcott making the team but we say wait until you see the women’s slopestyle burst onto the Winter Olympics scene. You thought boardercross was exciting British people well wait until you see the gnarly polish Jenny Jones can put into a run or Aimee Fuller‘s floating backflips then come and talk to us.
