Rowan Cheshire, 18, has been skiing for eight years.

The halfpipe freestyle skier is part of a 56-strong British squad for the Sochi games, the largest since Calgary in 1988.

She explains how she got into the sport and that being part of the Winter Olympics "doesn't feel real".

She also explains how balancing studying for A-levels with training and competing hasn't been easy.
