Jamie Nicholls got Great Britain off to a fine start at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games after qualifying straight to the snowboard slopestyle final.
Nicholls, the penultimate rider in the first of two qualification heats, secured his place with a second run of 86.75 that pushed him up to fourth overall.
The top-four bypass the semi-finals on Saturday and head straight to the final on the same day with Nicholls overwhelmed by his efforts in Russia.
“I feel amazing. I can’t explain it. I came here and all I wanted to do was land a run and landing a run and getting to the finals is a dream come true,” he said.
Meanwhile, fellow Brit Billy Morgan also impressed on the way to sixth place, scoring 85.50 on his second run just 1.25 points shy of Nicholls.
Given bib No.1, the 24-year-old was the first athlete to compete at the Games and must now tackle the semi-finals at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park.
Two-time Winter X Games champion Jenny Jones admitted making history was enough following her women’s snowboard slopestyle qualification heat at the Winter Olympics.
Much like fellow Brit Billy Morgan, Jones was not only drawn in the first of two qualification heats but given bib No.1 – making her the first woman to compete at Sochi 2014.
Jones scored 74.25 for her historic first run before cutting the second short and, despite falling agonisingly shy of the top four that advanced straight to the final, she was happy enough.
“It’s nice to have that. And I am glad to have landed my run being the first person to drop in. There were definitely some nerves,” said Jones, who finished fifth.
The semi-finals, held before the final on Sunday, are next up for Jones as well as fellow Team GB member Aimee Fuller, who scored a best of 44.50 from her two runs for tenth.
Great Britain's David King insisted it was back to the drawing board after a frustrating night with pairs partner Stacey Kemp in the Olympic team figure skating competition.
Kemp and King, who finished 16th four years ago in Vancouver, admitted they were far from their best as they made their first appearance in Sochi.
The team event is a new addition to the Olympic programme and features one entry per nation in each figure skating discipline performing their short program.
Britain are seeded tenth of the ten qualified nations and only the top five, after Saturday's second phase, will get to perform their free skate.
King and Kemp placed tenth of ten couples in the pairs division and when their scores were added to Matt Parr, who ranked ninth the men's field, Great Britain were in tenth position overall, with Jenna McCorkell and ice dancers Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland due to skate this weekend.
"One or two things didn't go our way but we have to move on from that, you can't dwell on anything in skating," said King, after his partner fell following a throw to cost them valuable marks.
"It's nice to get out there and get some time on the rink in front of a crowd. However, we've got a lot of work to do before we compete in our main event next week. We just have to improve and find the elements the judges thought we were missing.
Parr produced a personal best short program, smashing his old 49.32 mark with a 57.40, but ranked ninth out of ten in the men's competition.
But Parr was just happy to achieve his ambition - even if it was all over in just under three minutes.
"It couldn't have gone better for me, my goal was to get a personal best and I've achieved that, so I'm very pleased and it went as well as I could have hoped," he said.
"The build-up has been intense because this is what I've been aiming to do since I was a kid. It was a nice release to have finished and put in a performance that I'll be proud of. In years to come I can look back and say I did as well as I could."
