No. But there is a RPi 1 image in this folder:
It's not listed on the web site yet, but could be added.

However, there is 1 significant problem with this image: it doesn't use
a Debian-packaged kernel, but instead the kernel is installed by
rpi-update. As such, the kernel is not automatically upgraded either, so
you should re-run rpi-update occasionally.
