In her two-runs, the 22-year-old posted scores of 39.00 and a 44.50.

The performance put her in fifth position in the heat of 12 and means she will compete in the semi-final on Sunday.

A delighted Amiee took to Twitter saying she was "pumped" about her performance.

"That was so much fun," she said.

"Will get things a little cleaner, see you in the semis on Sunday."

Also competing at the Sochi Games is figure skater Jenna McCorkell from Coleraine.
