After the postponement of the men's

downhill and the slopestyle

0:01:150:01:19

qualifying yesterday the women's

giant slalom was called off as well

0:01:190:01:22

today. We will start when things are

a bit calmer inside in the ice arena

0:01:220:01:27

with the conclusion of the team

figure skating. Yesterday we saw

0:01:270:01:35

Evgenia Medvedeva, one of the

Olympic Athletes from Russia team

0:01:350:01:37

who set a world record in the short

programme. Canada are in pole

0:01:370:01:43

position with three events to go.

The men's and women's free skate as

0:01:430:01:46

well as the ice free dance. Your

commentators are Catherine Downes

0:01:460:01:51

and Robin Cousins.

0:01:510:01:56

commentators are Catherine Downes

and Robin Cousins.

0:01:580:02:00

The Olympic bronze medallist

representing the English -- Russian

0:02:000:02:06

athletes.

We will see how he

manages. There are eight quads

0:02:060:02:13

planned in all from the gentleman 's

side this morning so we will see how

0:02:130:02:18

he manages.

He skates to Elvis

Presley because he says he feels a

0:02:180:02:23

bit like Elvis Presley. I read that

in an interview.

0:02:230:02:35

He is opening with a quadruple Lutz,

which is the most difficult of the

0:02:400:02:45

quadruple jumps. When it works it is

exquisite and when it does not it is

0:02:450:02:52

not great, and that was not a great

one there. He made a rotation so he

0:02:520:02:56

will be given credit for it but

obviously he wanted a landing and

0:02:560:03:02

not running edge, not a landing the

backside.

0:03:020:03:08

backside. The second quadruple. He

did not make the rotation there.

0:03:100:03:15

That will definitely be an X in that

box, the boxes up on the left of

0:03:150:03:23

your screen there. That is for each

element. Read it means review and

0:03:230:03:29

yellow means review and green means

accepted. A triple axle double toe

0:03:290:03:35

loop. Watch that box go green. A

technical panel deciding which

0:03:350:03:46

elements are clean and which are to

be reviewed.

0:03:460:03:53

And now, Kearney got her and deliver

another clean quadruple jump -- can

0:04:510:05:00

he prepare and deliver? He has a

quadruple planned.

0:05:000:05:12

CHEERING

Yes, he can. Not the best landing,

0:05:120:05:20

so the judges' grade of execution

point for that jump will probably be

0:05:200:05:26

minuses, but he gets credit for the

element.

0:05:260:05:34

element. Lovely light and easy

triple axle.

0:05:340:05:43

triple axle. A big jumping element

here that he absolutely needs to get

0:05:430:05:47

right. Two triple combination jumps,

the triple lutz and the triple

0:05:470:05:54

salto.

0:05:540:05:59

-- Salchow.

0:06:440:06:45

CHEERING

0:07:080:07:14

At the Olympic Athletes from Russia

in the silver medal position for now

0:07:140:07:17

and they would have wanted to see

those quads on point if they were

0:07:170:07:21

going to push the gold.

We saw in

the short program. He didn't quite

0:07:210:07:26

nail" and then again any long

programme, he went for them and they

0:07:260:07:29

didn't work out. He's very much an

all nothing skater.

Well done on

0:07:290:07:38

this season's best which is up on

the 180s. A pat on the shoulder, but

0:07:380:07:46

I think the whole team know that he

could have done better. The great

0:07:460:07:53

Patrick Chan. We saw him muddled

through in the short program, not a

0:07:530:07:59

performance that we were expecting

from the three-time world champion.

0:07:590:08:07

He took team and individual silver

in Sochi, looking to go for gold

0:08:090:08:14

with team Canada, here in South

Korea.

0:08:140:08:25

Chan has two quadruple jumps plan.

There is the first, eight to -- a

0:08:480:08:56

toe loop and triple toe loop in

combination, the second quadruple is

0:08:560:09:01

a repeat, which he is allowed one.

And it is going to come right now.

0:09:010:09:08

CHEERING

Exquisite, absolutely glorious.

0:09:080:09:17

That should have been a chapel axel

in combination. -- a triple axel.

0:09:260:09:40

That is better, the triple Lutz,

loop, triple Salchow.

0:10:090:10:22

Second triple axel, made the

rotation but not the landing.

0:10:410:10:55

Two hands down on the triple loop.

0:11:000:11:06

The triple flip, added a double toe

loop, means to try and rack up some

0:11:450:11:49

points. -- needs to try.

0:11:490:11:54

APPLAUSE

The Patrick Chan that we know and

0:13:000:13:06

love has not yet turned up at these

games. The mistakes there, just

0:13:060:13:12

uncharacteristic.

Look at this

perfect body position, body

0:13:120:13:18

alignment, great take-off, easy,

through the landing.

0:13:180:13:25

through the landing.

They have given

him a massive new season's best

0:13:270:13:30

comments previous was 151.27, after

a difficult season but one to 79.75

0:13:300:13:38

is a massive season's best.

But in

context the boys heading for the

0:13:380:13:44

medals are going to be scoring over

200.

Let's have a look at the

0:13:440:13:49

standings of that men's competition.

Patrick Chan, the three-time

0:13:490:13:52

champion leads the way.

0:13:520:13:58

champion leads the way. Adam

Griffin, what a skate from him at

0:13:580:14:00

his first Olympics in third. --

add-on Rippon.

0:14:000:14:18

add-on Rippon. -- Adam Rippon.

0:14:180:14:18

And she's got it, the triple axel to

open the programme. The music from

0:14:410:14:51

Miss Saigon and there on the screen

you can see the green box ticked.

0:14:510:14:55

The triple flip, the triple toe

loop, did very well to save that,

0:14:550:15:02

but save it she did. And the triple

Salchow.

0:15:020:15:19

The double axle, triple toe loop.

Double toe loop.

0:16:180:16:26

Triple books, double toe loop. --

triple Lutz. Triple flip.

0:16:420:16:58

One triple jump left. A triple loop.

0:17:480:17:58

And she has got that.

0:18:080:18:14

Oh, my goodness me.

Team USA are on

their feet. There they are, cheering

0:18:240:18:30

on their girl. What a way to open

this lady 's long programme. Mirai

0:18:300:18:37

Nagasu on her Olympic return will

stop a new season is best for her.

0:18:370:18:49

137.5 three. She is top of the

standings for now.

0:18:490:19:01

standings for now. Here is Gabrielle

Daleman for the Canadians, as they

0:19:010:19:04

look to consolidate that gold-medal.

They are way out in front, seven

0:19:040:19:10

points ahead of the rest of the

field. She is a world champion

0:19:100:19:13

bronze medallist. This is her second

Olympics. She was the youngest

0:19:130:19:18

member of the Canadian team that

Sochi but here she is four years

0:19:180:19:22

later with a lot more experience

under her belt. She is a powerful

0:19:220:19:25

skater.

0:19:250:19:31

skater.

She is also the current

Canadian number one, the national

0:19:310:19:34

champion. As she was two macro

seasons ago. Last season it was her

0:19:340:19:42

team-mate. Gaby opens up with a

triple toe loop, triple toe loop.

0:19:420:19:54

A nice triple Lutz. She has terrific

balance and elevation on her

0:20:100:20:18

take-offs. She has had difficulty

controlling it in the past but last

0:20:180:20:24

couple of seasons good consistency.

A triple flip.

0:20:240:20:34

The second triple Lutz in

combination with two double toe

0:21:330:21:36

loops stronger in combination than

the first.

0:21:360:21:46

the first. There is the triple loop.

0:21:460:21:56

Final jumping pass. Triple Zarco and

a double axle she wants. There is

0:22:250:22:31

the Sawao Kato. There is the double

act so. -- axle.

0:22:310:22:44

That is it. That has got to be gold

for Canada. Clean and strong from

0:23:350:23:41

Gabrielle Daleman, and with the

world champions Tessa Virtue and

0:23:410:23:44

Scott Moir to come in the ice dance

it is surely now only a formality.

0:23:440:23:48

Just give them the gold!

She wanted

to lay down the gauntlet, and she

0:23:480:23:54

did it. We are going to see a new

season 's best. You are probably

0:23:540:23:59

correct that team Canada will still

be in the lead.

I am going early. It

0:23:590:24:05

is a massive seasons best, 137.144

Gabrielle Daleman of team Canada.

0:24:050:24:15

Alina Zagitova, 15 years old, the

Prodigy who has out prodigies

0:24:200:24:24

Evgenia Medvedeva this season and

she beat the double champion to win

0:24:240:24:30

the European title just a few weeks

ago. She is something else.

0:24:300:24:37

In for the first jumping pass, and

it is the most difficult combination

0:26:450:26:49

we will see in the Lady event.

Triple Lutz, triple loop

0:26:490:26:53

combination.

0:26:530:26:58

The double axel, triple toe loop.

0:27:070:27:10

There is the triple flip, double

toe, double loop combination.

0:27:180:27:30

Triple Lutz.

0:27:490:27:55

Another triple flip. The last jump,

the axel.

0:28:060:28:16

Alina Zagitova, you little

firecracker! What talent.

She is 15,

0:28:380:28:47

but there is such maturity in the

choreography and in the way she

0:28:470:28:50

moves.

0:28:500:28:57

moves.

158.08, a new season is best

for the 15-year-old Alina Zagitova,

0:28:570:29:01

her first Olympics. Canada have an

unassailable lead so they are the

0:29:010:29:09

Olympic champions for 2018.

0:29:090:29:15

Olympic champions for 2018. The gold

is already in the bag so just a

0:29:160:29:21

masterclass then from the world

champions, Tessa Virtue and Scott

0:29:210:29:25

Moir and a fitting way to close out

this team event. The gold around

0:29:250:29:31

their necks once this routine is

done.

0:29:310:29:40

APPLAUSE

0:33:220:33:27

CHEERING

0:33:470:33:52

From the Moulin Rouge to the top of

the podium that will put Canada out

0:33:570:34:01

of sight. Tessa Virtue and Scott

Moir are head and shoulders above

0:34:010:34:06

the rest.

This solidifies their

second gold medal. They took gold in

0:34:060:34:10

Vancouver in 2010, and I absolutely

loved every second and every move of

0:34:100:34:16

that performance.

What does this

mean,

0:34:160:34:21

that performance.

What does this

mean, the team gold for Canada?

What

0:34:210:34:24

a testament to the strong

performances from our team-mates. It

0:34:240:34:28

was so inspiring. We had no doubt

that they would lay it down but they

0:34:280:34:32

gave a nice cushion as we took to

the ice and we were able to savour

0:34:320:34:36

their moment and embrace it every

step of the way.

Last time in Sochi

0:34:360:34:40

it was silver for the team, who

converted that to gold. What has

0:34:400:34:45

changed in Canadian figure skating

in the last four years, Scott? That

0:34:450:34:50

is a great question.

Give me a great

answer! I think we just have a

0:34:500:34:55

special team. I'm so proud of these

skaters and I think our attitude

0:34:550:35:02

changed from Sochi, I think we were

a little bit too casual. And this

0:35:020:35:07

team event now in figure skating is

just like the hockey and curling

0:35:070:35:10

medals, we are a figure skating

country. The choreographers, coaches

0:35:100:35:18

and skaters have come from Canada,

and we are proud of these athletes

0:35:180:35:22

for making that happen and this is a

great journey, and I think these

0:35:220:35:30

guys really deserve it.

After three

days of spellbinding competition

0:35:300:35:35

team event is over, the medals have

been handed out and Robin and I have

0:35:350:35:38

been watching the action from the

commentary box above the ice, it

0:35:380:35:41

been quite a perch from what -- from

which to watch the competition.

Some

0:35:410:35:49

of the performances might not have

started out the way they wanted them

0:35:490:35:52

but in the team competition, team

Canada came through in a blaze of

0:35:520:36:01

glory, and Virtue and Moir did need

to perform to take the gold medal

0:36:010:36:03

but they did it in such amazing

style. Some teams had set themselves

0:36:030:36:08

up for medal contention in the

coming days.

That is what this team

0:36:080:36:12

competition has been all about. It

is brilliant to see Canada win, and

0:36:120:36:17

a celebration show that it means so

much today at athletes to compete as

0:36:170:36:21

a team, but really, they want that

individual glory. We saw some real

0:36:210:36:26

gauntlets being laid down,

particularly in the women's event,

0:36:260:36:30

with the 15-year-old from Russia.

She was just mind blowing.

She

0:36:300:36:35

skated flawlessly, and got a new

world record Medvedeva, then we saw

0:36:350:36:43

another incredible performance,

somewhat clinical because everything

0:36:430:36:49

she does is points first, aesthetics

second, but she delivered the goods,

0:36:490:36:53

and it is going to make an amazing

1-2, I think in the gold and silver

0:36:530:36:59

positions, but in which order, we're

not going to know. But then, the

0:36:590:37:06

triple axel, we have not seen one of

those in many years at this

0:37:060:37:11

competition, at this level.

Scott

Moir and Tessa Virtue didn't need to

0:37:110:37:14

skate to win the medal NBI stands,

but they are head and shoulders

0:37:140:37:17

above the rest. We have not yet seen

the French pair that they train

0:37:170:37:23

with, that could be the big rivalry

there, but

0:37:230:37:29

there, but for me, Moir and Virtue

look untouchable.

The French team

0:37:330:37:36

have the world record score overall,

so they are not going to go down

0:37:360:37:39

without a fight, and I know, they

train together, they know exactly

0:37:390:37:43

what the other is capable of, and

it's a question of who's going to

0:37:430:37:48

deliver on day. Moir and Virtue had

this opportunity to skate in front

0:37:480:37:52

of the Olympic crowd and judges and

really deliver a performance and it

0:37:520:37:55

was a masterclass in performing, as

well as being able to deliver the

0:37:550:38:01

technical quality required.

Robin,

it has been an absolute delight to

0:38:010:38:04

watch it with you over the past few

days. Canada are the Olympic

0:38:040:38:09

champions, the Olympic Athletes from

Russia take silver, with the USA in

0:38:090:38:12

the bronze medal position once

again. Now our attention turns to

0:38:120:38:17

taking individual glory, and the

tears get underway on Wednesday

0:38:170:38:20

morning. After the wind delayed

qualifying yesterday it was a

0:38:200:38:25

straight final but that conditions

make things very difficult, despite

0:38:250:38:29

that Aimee Fuller of Great Britain

still try to follow in the footsteps

0:38:290:38:33

of Jenny Jones.

0:38:330:38:34

So the women slopestyle files, after

the cancellation of the qualifiers

0:38:390:38:44

yesterday we have a full quota, 26

women dropping today and instead of

0:38:440:38:50

three ones and the best score

counting, they will ultimately get

0:38:500:38:53

two. Klaudia Medlova, one of the

trailblazers of recent years. She

0:38:530:39:00

made a name for herself dropping the

first ever double rodeo. She did the

0:39:000:39:07

first double caught frontside 1080

in competition. A big gap out on the

0:39:070:39:14

double kink rail.

0:39:140:39:19

double kink rail. Up and over the A

frame, setting up that final little

0:39:190:39:28

module and into the first of the

jumps, super corked, and goodness

0:39:280:39:36

me, that was incredible. She

essentially jumped off the roof of a

0:39:360:39:41

house and landed on her back. I

cannot believe she is riding away.

0:39:410:39:45

You can see that she got caught up

in the rotation, whether it was the

0:39:450:39:51

wind that caught her board, and

stored the rotation. Jessika Jenson

0:39:510:39:55

dropping in. Hailey Langland, Julia

Marino and Jamie Anderson rounding

0:39:550:40:04

out the very strong American

contingent who have made their way

0:40:040:40:06

into slopestyle. Jessika Jenson just

centring herself. The Americans

0:40:060:40:14

qualified through their own Grand

Prix

0:40:140:40:20

Prix Series and Jessica got a fifth

place there, the highest result of

0:40:200:40:23

this season.

0:40:230:40:29

this season. Pinning speed into this

little ramp. The body language, both

0:40:300:40:35

hands held out in front, she does

not look confident on this course.

I

0:40:350:40:41

feel a little bit nervous watching

her. That was a solid Switch 540.

0:40:410:40:47

That is more like it. Now the

frontside 360, very nice. Now, keep

0:40:470:40:52

the composure. And a big back side

720, new first place.

We have not

0:40:520:41:02

seen a run completed over all three

kickers.

Yes, that is first place,

0:41:020:41:10

easily.

Aimee Fuller is about to

drop. The rider who burst onto the

0:41:100:41:22

scene with a very credible double

that -- backflip handicap double

0:41:220:41:29

under. She has been getting to grips

with this course throughout

0:41:290:41:33

training. The 50-50 on that big down

rail.

Come on, Aimee Fuller. Off

0:41:330:41:44

early on the kink rail.

0:41:440:41:49

early on the kink rail.

With the

result is that she has been pushing,

0:41:520:41:54

a top-10 result would be good for

Aimee today.

So, the under flip,

0:41:540:42:04

that is the single version. It

didn't feel like she had the speed.

0:42:040:42:11

You could almost hear her saying,

it's so windy.

You can see the wind,

0:42:110:42:18

almost horizontal on that second

kicker.

Just making it over the

0:42:180:42:24

small side. Again, the wind, an

issue. It is a shame for Aimee.

0:42:240:42:33

Waiting for the wind to stop.

You

can hear her, though, saying,

0:42:390:42:43

waiting for the win to stop.

Now

another rider who doesn't have the

0:42:430:42:49

World Cup ranking that is --

reflects her ability and level of

0:42:490:42:55

riding. She is a very tidy

competitor. Really difficult switch

0:42:550:43:05

grind, super technical on the kink

rail, but let's not forget she got

0:43:050:43:11

three medals in a row at the X

Games. She loves riding at the X

0:43:110:43:15

Games. Now into this jump, coming up

a little short, she needs to tuck in

0:43:150:43:25

now, no speed checks. And through

the 360, she clears it, despite

0:43:250:43:30

losing her composure. The front side

720, and there they go, we see the

0:43:300:43:38

first of the riders, she's got the

ball control, the internal

0:43:380:43:41

speedometer and maybe not in the

prettiest way, but she has made it

0:43:410:43:45

through really constantly.

There we

go, look at that, 73.91, moving

0:43:450:43:54

ahead of Jessika Jenson. Next up,

Anna Gasser. One of the riders who

0:43:540:44:06

thinks this competition probably

shouldn't have run in these

0:44:060:44:11

conditions, alongside Enni

Rukajarvi, but bounced about the

0:44:110:44:14

best slopestyle ride in the world.

At the US Open last year she landed

0:44:140:44:17

the best run anyone has ever seen by

a woman in slopestyle. Let's see

0:44:170:44:24

what she's got, here. Really

attacking the course. 270 to

0:44:240:44:29

frontside broadside at the end of

the double kink.

Going without a

0:44:290:44:34

jacket, consciously thinking about

the wind, nice slip slide on the

0:44:340:44:39

down bar, looking good from Anna

Gasser. And the under flip, that is

0:44:390:44:46

how you did, and it is with a

revert, oh, my goodness.

See what's

0:44:460:44:53

this, doesn't see?

She sent it huge,

got the big trick out of the way

0:44:530:45:01

early, then calmed down.

Just watch

this, everyone.

Horrific effort from

0:45:010:45:09

Anna Gasser, though.

0:45:090:45:17

Anna Gasser, though. -- Heroic ever.

She has dominated slopestyle,

0:45:170:45:22

knocking Jenny Jones off of her

perch in 2012. If anyone can ride

0:45:220:45:28

this course, if anyone can find a

way around the win, it would be this

0:45:280:45:32

woman, the reigning Olympic

champion, the gold medallist at the

0:45:320:45:37

X Games, two weeks ago, Jamie

Anderson.

Just when you think she is

0:45:370:45:44

thinking about hanging up her

competitive snowboard boots, she

0:45:440:45:50

goes and learns new tricks. Look at

that, goodness me, liquid

0:45:500:45:54

snowboarding.

It is a different

league, through the rails.

So

0:45:540:46:01

stylish, so smooth.

Confidence and

experience shining through. What is

0:46:010:46:07

it going to look like here? Massive.

My goodness. Legs, forged from

0:46:070:46:13

steel! She boxed clever, opened up.

I thought that was going to be a cab

0:46:130:46:21

double under.

0:46:210:46:26

Look at that. It is exactly what we

said, the ability confidence and the

0:46:260:46:31

trust in her tricks and the ability

to understand, the spatial awareness

0:46:310:46:34

at every point. She knows it wasn't

pretty all the way through.

It

0:46:340:46:39

wasn't pretty but experience got

through it.

83 for Jamie Anderson. A

0:46:390:46:47

big smile for and does very well

deserved gold medal position after

0:46:470:46:52

the first run.

That is so good to

see.

Very, very good to see. The

0:46:520:47:01

Americans are sitting in gold and

bronze.

0:47:010:47:07

bronze. An absolute lottery after

the medal positions. OK, the second

0:47:070:47:13

run here in the Phoenix Park venue

for all of the freestyle events. A

0:47:130:47:23

few of the wind sock.

Gaping like a

basking shark.

You can see this is

0:47:230:47:31

not the air, it is snow being blown

off the hill. We have more than 45

0:47:310:47:35

kilometres of gusts. It is good to

have Jamie Nicholls back.

0:47:350:47:45

have Jamie Nicholls back. Aimee

Fuller says let's do this. Certainly

0:47:450:47:48

at the moment the wind sock in

saying that it is good. Let us see

0:47:480:47:55

how she can go on these rails. 50/50

all the way to the end. A great

0:47:550:48:01

start.

0:48:010:48:06

start. Nice. All the way through the

double kink.

Yes, a nice press on

0:48:070:48:12

the final section of the King cry.

Through the rails nice and smooth.

0:48:120:48:19

Snap the backside 180 around.

0:48:190:48:25

Snap the backside 180 around. A good

grab. Come on, Aimee Fuller.

Pumping

0:48:260:48:29

into this. She sends it really on

with the backside 360.

Now just the

0:48:290:48:38

last jump.

She has gone huge.

Oh,

God! I hope she is OK.

What a shame.

0:48:380:48:47

Too much speed. That picture says it

all. There is a snowstorm. A

0:48:470:48:54

blizzard almost happening down at

the bottom.

0:48:540:49:01

the bottom.

Just crazy.

You can

access the spiral of snow, a mini

0:49:030:49:06

tornado. Next Hailey Langland. The

girl who said you cannot judge a

0:49:060:49:15

book by it's cover but you can judge

a snowboarder by their method is on

0:49:150:49:20

course. That lovely art around, just

tapping the corner of the close-out

0:49:200:49:26

rail.

That is a good line, no one

else is doing that.

Wasn't quite as

0:49:260:49:31

tidy as she would have wanted a

double kink. Almost surfing into the

0:49:310:49:36

third feature to kill speed.

Nice.

There was nothing functional about

0:49:360:49:41

it. That lovely double grab

frontside 360. Come on, Hailey

0:49:410:49:52

Langland. Backside and just made it

the knuckles. She has got enough

0:49:520:50:00

speed. Look at how stoked she is.

The Americans are cheering and very,

0:50:000:50:06

very justifiably. One of the

smallest and lightest riders in the

0:50:060:50:11

field has landed a full run.

Do you

think it is top three? Definitely

0:50:110:50:17

top three. Definitely top three for

me. The only question is whether

it

0:50:170:50:23

is a gold medal. I do not think it

is gold. I think, I actually think

0:50:230:50:29

it might be silver.

Oh, just off!

Fourth-place.

That is a shame.

0:50:290:50:40

Jessika Jenson stays in third place.

Laurie Blouin the Canadian.

She has

0:50:400:50:47

got the 99 as well. She can do the

cab 99.

Interestingly, I don't think

0:50:470:50:53

it is about your best tricks here,

it is about what you can put

0:50:530:50:59

together in the circumstances, what

is your best stock run? Interesting

0:50:590:51:02

to compere Laurie Blouin with Hailey

Langland, Laurie Blouin is so

0:51:020:51:12

functional but Hailey Langland was

so fluid between each feature.

0:51:120:51:15

Sitting back a tiny bit. This is

where it counts.

She held on.

Just

0:51:150:51:23

making it over the knuckle.

We go

into the last jump. Switch 540. Yes,

0:51:230:51:35

she has got it. Another landed run.

0:51:350:51:41

There you go, second.

Look at the

Black eye sustained in training.

0:51:450:51:51

Second place.

0:51:510:51:58

Second place. Next in, Enni

Rukajarvi, a rider who was not happy

0:51:580:52:02

about the conditions.

Keep it

simple.

Is that your advice?

I think

0:52:020:52:09

so. A day like today to is best to

keep it simple.

Are lovely rainbow

0:52:090:52:15

transition into the board slide in

the coming through the hardest

0:52:150:52:18

section of the course, over the

close-out and 50/50 backside 180.

0:52:180:52:24

Perfect.

Really, really nice. Half

cabin using the classic line at all

0:52:240:52:30

the Finnish men did across the rail.

Setting up as which were the first

0:52:300:52:36

take-off and dropping right to the

skewed take-off. Lovely. Cab 540.

0:52:360:52:45

She has gone big. Backside 720.

Holds on. Yes.

This is looking good.

0:52:450:52:54

Frontside 360. Bounces off the

knuckle. On the spot, Jamie, on the

0:52:540:52:59

spot. Where is that?

I don't know.

We currently have the bronze medal

0:52:590:53:07

position there but I think she knows

it is the end of her hopes. She

0:53:070:53:12

slots into third position. Anna

Gasser has written in four Big tests

0:53:120:53:18

this year and won all of them. La

slopestyle Konta she wrote was ten

0:53:180:53:24

months ago at the US Open and she

laid down the best slopestyle run we

0:53:240:53:28

have ever seen in women's

snowboarding. What can she do today?

0:53:280:53:33

There is no question she has the

tricks.

I think even if she does the

0:53:330:53:40

cab under and plays it safe, she has

a very good chance of being on the

0:53:400:53:43

podium.

Blazing through the rail

section.

That is so good.

0:53:430:53:55

section.

That is so good.

Killing

her speed. 50-16 knows press.

That

0:53:560:53:59

is a hard line with the 180 and

switching to be urge to quickly get

0:53:590:54:03

on the rail.

A single and a one

under flipper. Jamie Nicholls called

0:54:030:54:10

it. She has gone huge.

0:54:100:54:20

it. She has gone huge.

Oh, my gosh.

That is so annoying. One of the best

0:54:200:54:24

slopestyle riders varies.

Another

rider with the firepower of tricks

0:54:240:54:31

to take this down. Julia Marino is

currently in 11th place.

That was

0:54:310:54:39

really nice.

In the World Cup

ranking she is only one spot behind

0:54:390:54:43

Jamie Anderson, currently in second.

Very smooth.

So smooth. A lovely

0:54:430:54:53

50/50 to frontside 350.

That is one

of the best top sections.

0:54:530:55:01

of the best top sections.

Frontside

720. Clipped the knuckle and

0:55:010:55:03

bounced. Jamie Anderson knows that

she has

0:55:030:55:12

she has claimed the second

consecutive Olympic gold-medal. Look

0:55:120:55:15

at her.

Enjoyed it.

That is the one

thing I would say, you know what,

0:55:150:55:20

silver and bronze could have gone

anywhere but Jamie Anderson, the

0:55:200:55:24

cream has risen to the top of the

slopestyle today. Against the odds,

0:55:240:55:32

against the conditions, she managed

to land the run she wanted to and

0:55:320:55:36

her experience has told. Look at it.

She is waiting.

Curtains on the side

0:55:360:55:46

there.

I hope she goes down and 's

methods on everything. Let us have a

0:55:460:55:51

look.

Lovely first rail. The only

rider transferring from the big kick

0:55:510:56:00

into the landing with the stale

finish.

She is so smooth.

Liquid

0:56:000:56:09

snowboarding, as Tim calls it. All

of these, it is muscle memory, isn't

0:56:090:56:13

it? A lovely shifty late switch

backside 180. Oh, no! Why? Why did

0:56:130:56:24

you risk it?

Yes.

0:56:240:56:30

you risk it?

Yes. The method exposes

the wind even more. She must be so

0:56:300:56:37

happy, especially in these

conditions as well.

Tripod over the

0:56:370:56:43

knuckle. Jamie Anderson rounds out

the women's slopestyle final here,

0:56:430:56:49

and her boyfriend, the Canadian

slopestyle rider Tyler Nicholson is

0:56:490:56:51

the first man in the finish area to

congratulate her. Jamie Anderson

0:56:510:56:58

crowns what has been a very well

decorated career with a second gold

0:56:580:57:06

medals.

Unreal.

That tells more of

today's story in the finish area,

0:57:060:57:14

the wind whistling through this

halfpipe course and the courage of

0:57:140:57:19

the women should be saluted.

0:57:190:57:24

halfpipe course and the courage of

the women should be saluted. Jamie,

0:57:240:57:28

double Olympic champion, how does it

feel?

Honestly it feels insane. I

0:57:280:57:34

mean, of course I believe in myself

and I have dreams and I have goals

0:57:340:57:38

but the level of riding has changed

so much in the last couple of years,

0:57:380:57:42

it wasn't nearly as much as in Sochi

where I knew I had a good chance but

0:57:420:57:47

here I have no idea because there

are so many girls who could land a

0:57:470:57:51

run and win the contest so I thought

I would just let it go.

At the end

0:57:510:57:57

of the day, it is the Olympic final

and everyone wanted to ride. It is

0:57:570:58:00

not how I wanted or planned or

visualised four years of prep work

0:58:000:58:06

to go into today but I think if you

were lucky with the winter there

0:58:060:58:10

were some calm windows but the

majority of it was super

0:58:100:58:16

inconsistent and I don't think it

was a true show of women's female

0:58:160:58:19

slopestyle, which is a real shame

for our sport but at the end of the

0:58:190:58:23

day we have Big Air next week so we

have to pick ourselves back up and

0:58:230:58:27

stay strong and have a good rest and

recovery and go hard next week.

That

0:58:270:58:32

is all for today but we will be back

tomorrow at exactly the same time

0:58:320:58:36

Iran BBC Four. With weather

permitting it will be the highlights

0:58:360:58:41

of the women's halfpipe final and

live coverage kicks off at 1am on

0:58:410:58:45

BBC One. There is also build-up for

the incredible Elise Christie and

0:58:450:58:49

her short track speed skating and

fingers crossed you could be Great

0:58:490:58:53

Britain 's first medal at the

Pyeongchang Olympic Games.

0:58:530:58:57
