Arriving in Sochi, Russia as a Paralympic veteran, Allison Jones competed with her usual tenacity and drive--which ultimately earned her an impressive bronze in the Women's Downhill Skiing. "Winning the first medal for the USA, what more could I ask for? I came here to have fun because this is my seventh Games, and I've had a blast," Jones said. "It's absolutely amazing. I did some great skiing and there is great snow." Her bronze medal makes it her fourth career Winter Paralympic win with a time of 1:34.09.

The race used the principle of so-called “calculated time,” in which each athlete’s times is modified by a percentage reflecting the extent of their disability.

Jones has won over a dozen medals in both in cycling and skiing, a feat that most professional athletes could only dream of. In an interview, Jones said,

I was born without my right leg, and have met life's challenges with the attitude that quitting is not an option. Chiropractic care has been essential to my good health and success--including earning multiple gold medals in international competitions over the past 10 years.
