Former Olympic skeleton champion Amy Williams has said that some of the new events at the Sochi Games will inspire "a whole new generation" to try winter sports.
The 2014 Games saw slopestyle snowboarding, ski half-pipe and women's ski jumping held at an Olympics for the first time.
The 2010 gold medallist told BBC Sport: "With the introduction of the new events like slopestyle snowboarding, it has been an amazing Games to watch.
"I think these events will bring the Winter Olympics to a whole new generation of younger people. They will be asking their parents if they can try these sports somewhere near to where they live."
Britain's Jenny Jones won her bronze medal in the first slopestyle snowboarding competition.
