Men's favourite Shaun White in Sochi

Slopestyle is the new kid on the block in this year's Winter games as the sport makes its Olympic debut in Sochi a day ahead of the official opening ceremony.

It's not been an easy ride however as the park has come across a number of teething problems as riders voice their concern over the course and the severity of its features.

Three-time X-Games in Sochi gold medallist Jones is one to look out for in the women's qualifiers as men's favourite Shaun White announced just a day ahead of the start of his campaign that he will be withdrawing from the slopestyle.

The American vowed to save himself from injury by pulling out of the slopestyle competition to concentrate his efforts on winning his third Olympic gold in the halfpipe.
