Snowboarder Katie Ormerod hopes to emulate Jenny Jones by returning from the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea with a medal.

The 2018 Winter Olympics is a multi-sport event scheduled to take place from 9 to 25 February 2018, in Pyeongchang County, South Korea.

There are 2952 athletes from 92 nations participating in this year's Winter Olympic games, and they are going to compete in 7 sports (15 disciplines).

One of those athletes is the 21-year-old Katie Ormerod from Brighouse, West Yorkshire, England.

Ormerod's dreams are big - she wants to go home with a medal from the 2018 Winter Olympic games.

She will compete in the slopestyle and big air snowboarding events.

The eyes of the British nation are looking at Ormerod, as she was described as Britain's best medal chance for Pyeongchang Olympic games.
