Madi Rowlands is a history maker after becoming Team GB’s first Winter Youth Olympic Games medallist on snow after taking gold in the ladies’ halfpipe event at Lillehammer 2016.

Well done Madi Rowlands!

Well done Madi, who at just 15, scored 88.60 to easily claim top spot at the ski halfpipe in Lillehammer, Norway. She beat Paula Cooper from the United States who was second with 79.00 and Austria's Lara Wolf, third, with 74.20.

Rowlands told BBC Sport:

"I couldn't be happier. It's probably the best run I've ever done. I hurt my knee in a World Cup event a month ago so I didn't expect this at all. There are two main competitions I ultimately want to get to, the X Games and then the Olympics. This is a great step towards that and I'm just so stoked to win."
