Helen Lander welcome two-day four of

the Winter Olympics. Yesterday

0:00:400:00:44

another set of medals were awarded

on a dramatic day here in

0:00:440:00:49

Pyeongchang, including gold for

Jamie Anderson in the woman

0:00:490:00:51

Slopestyle. Canada in the team

figure skating and the first medal

0:00:510:00:56

for Australia to claim silver in the

men's moguls. Team Canada are the

0:00:560:01:02

Olympic champions.

Laura Dahlmeier

is now a double Winter Olympic

0:01:020:01:08

champion.

Jamie Anderson, goodness

me, how liquid snowboarding.

Mikael

0:01:080:01:13

Kingsbury becomes champion at last.

Martin Fourcade, so much character,

0:01:130:01:19

so much heart.

What a jump!

Eight

more gold medals on offer today. It

0:01:190:01:29

is over to the women's halfpipe

final were all eyes were on Chloe

0:01:290:01:33

Kim, who was the clear favourite.

Could anybody challenge her for

0:01:330:01:40

gold? Over to Ed Leigh

0:01:400:01:41

Could anybody challenge her for

gold? Over to Ed Leigh Jenny Jones

0:01:410:01:42

to find out more. The most

successful snowboarder ever to strap

0:01:420:01:48

in, in competition.

This is Kelly's

fifth Olympics, can you believe

0:01:480:01:51

that?

She has a gold that she

claimed that the first time of

0:01:510:01:56

asking in Salt Lake City. She has

won bronze at the last boss Mike

0:01:560:02:02

Olympics, and she is constantly

asked when she is going to retire. A

0:02:020:02:06

question you might have some

sympathy with, Jenny.

She is only a

0:02:060:02:10

year older than I was when I was at

the Olympics. It is easy to remind

0:02:100:02:15

all the time of her age but if she

is riding at this high level, why

0:02:150:02:18

shouldn't be competing?

0:02:180:02:24

shouldn't be competing?

Massive!

Signature frontside air, the

0:02:240:02:27

backside 540. A lot of travel down

the pipe. Huge one side ten. 1080 on

0:02:270:02:35

the third hit, that is huge, into

the switch frontside 720 then the

0:02:350:02:41

backflip on the pipe, with the tail

grab air. Kelly Clark has set a huge

0:02:410:02:45

high mark here in the woman's

halfpipe finals. The 34-year-old out

0:02:450:02:54

of Newport Rhode

0:02:540:02:59

of Newport Rhode Island,.

She has

come into this after having a bit of

0:03:000:03:03

a wobble yesterday. She would not

normally find herself dropping in at

0:03:030:03:07

the beginning of the finals in 11th

place at the moment. Coming into

0:03:070:03:12

this, she is at a disadvantage

having to drop near the start, but

0:03:120:03:16

she looks so much more solid than

she did yesterday. She came so high

0:03:160:03:22

out of the pipe on that massive

trick.

In 2016, she came out at the

0:03:220:03:28

US open in excruciating pain, came

third, then went straight for hip

0:03:280:03:35

surgery. Everyone was asking if this

was the precursor to retirement.

0:03:350:03:40

Here she is two years later at the

fifth Olympics scoring 76.2 five.

0:03:400:03:46

Next, Sena Tomita. The Japanese

rider has been going from strength

0:03:460:03:52

to strength, scoring a second in the

same competition where we saw Emily

0:03:520:04:05

Arthur take six. The Japanese focus

on amplitude. They have really

0:04:050:04:10

strong halfpipe programme. Just

settling herself.

Unit is that they

0:04:100:04:16

have all got their earphones on,

music is very important to a lot of

0:04:160:04:22

these girls. -- you notice that.

The

frontside 900. Into the backside

0:04:220:04:30

540. The frontside 720, just getting

the ball inside the top of the lip,

0:04:300:04:42

then the switch 720, then the

frontside 540, then straight air to

0:04:420:04:47

finish, lovely method. Great

amplitude on this. The most

0:04:470:04:53

technical trick of the run comes at

the top of the pipe.

If you do that

0:04:530:04:59

at the top it gives you a lot more

points.

0:04:590:05:06

points.

65.25 moves into second

place just ahead of Mirabelle

0:05:060:05:11

Thovex. Now the 24-year-old Haruna

Matsumoto. She surprised a lot of

0:05:110:05:17

people yesterday. And some other

names from Japan who we expected to

0:05:170:05:24

see up here, but, no. Has started to

make headway in 2016, getting seven

0:05:240:05:32

at the test event here then a

second. The big frontside air, to

0:05:320:05:39

start. The backside 540. The

frontside 900.

0:05:390:05:53

The switch seven, out of the front

seven. Amplitude leads. And she

0:05:550:06:02

claims it. Oh! It is really hard.

These riders are really light, and

0:06:020:06:13

to get high up, you need a bit of

weight. If you haven't got it you

0:06:130:06:17

take a more direct line down the

pike to get speed up. By doing that

0:06:170:06:23

you then lose hits and it changes

the way that you do your tricks. It

0:06:230:06:27

is such a toss-up between

technicality, doing the tricks and

0:06:270:06:31

also getting amplitude. 70 points

for Haruna Matsumoto.

0:06:310:06:42

for Haruna Matsumoto. Now Liu Jiayu,

we have seen what she is capable of,

0:06:420:06:47

one of the most technical, stylish,

creative and higher ones that we

0:06:470:06:53

have seen.

And she does a lot of

these tricks at the top.

We will see

0:06:530:07:01

hopefully, her first run, her stock

run has asked which method and she

0:07:010:07:05

is dropping them backwards now, and

that is like riding with your left

0:07:050:07:08

hand. She does the hardest, most

stylish tricks for her first trick.

0:07:080:07:14

It is so hard to keep your heel

edge. This is a beautiful run. The

0:07:140:07:21

big frontside five landing nicely,

high into the transitions,

0:07:210:07:25

back-to-back fives, now, the front

seven, could have got it round a bit

0:07:250:07:29

more, but her hands or indy air, she

is happy. She looked so relax. The

0:07:290:07:34

close-up that you saw of the landing

of the frontside 720, the arms down

0:07:340:07:40

by her side, the body language said

it all. She was in control and she

0:07:400:07:45

had that run absolutely dialled in.

That is her stock trick that she put

0:07:450:07:52

down, absolutely fine.

She does not

seem nervous at all. The frontside

0:07:520:07:56

five of the first hit, and I think

that this 720 could become a 1080 by

0:07:560:08:03

the third run. What we have

essentially done here, we put all

0:08:030:08:11

the ingredients in a big stockpot,

and we are going to gently bring

0:08:110:08:15

them to the boil! Hopefully we will

have a piping hot stew by the end of

0:08:150:08:21

this final.

And the attention to

detail, she is getting the grabs and

0:08:210:08:24

holding them.

What is fascinating is

that these women have come from dues

0:08:240:08:31

Matt Dixon -- from gymnastics

programmes in China, then you have

0:08:310:08:36

them building slowly and taking

snowboarding. She's happy with that.

0:08:360:08:42

She's very, very happy. Chloe Kim.

She is of South Korean descent.

0:08:420:08:53

Parents emigrated to the United

States. The youngest person ever to

0:08:530:08:58

win three X Games gold medals. And

she has won them consecutively.

0:08:580:09:06

Wouldn't you love to know what is

playing in her ear, now.

She is

0:09:060:09:11

without question the best halfpipe

rider in the world. Whether she can

0:09:110:09:14

put it together under pressure from

the Chinese rider Liu Jiayu is what

0:09:140:09:19

counts.

0:09:190:09:24

counts. Boom! Huge, to start things

off. She loses a bit of speed but

0:09:260:09:31

still gets the 720 around. The

frontside 900. There is the twist

0:09:310:09:38

with the indie crap. Into a huge

inverted seven. What a run --

0:09:380:09:52

inverted seven. What a run -- with

the indy grab. I'm not saying that

0:09:520:09:53

she is ahead of the pack, but she is

ahead of the pack!

0:09:530:10:01

ahead of the pack!

She keeps up

amplitude the whole way down. That

0:10:030:10:05

is unreal.

This is a fascinating

bit, the frontside 1080. Kelly Clark

0:10:050:10:14

but at any third hit, Chloe Kim puts

it in the second hit. This is the

0:10:140:10:18

frontside 900 further down but out

of the frontside 1080 Shias the

0:10:180:10:25

switch 720. It lacked a bit of

amplitude. For the first time ever

0:10:250:10:29

at X Games two weeks ago we saw the

back-to-back 1080. That is somewhere

0:10:290:10:36

that Chloe Kim can go that nobody

else can.

And she has two more runs

0:10:360:10:41

to give the back-to-back tens ago.

The gauntlet has been laid down by

0:10:410:10:47

Chloe Kim. Can you catch me? That is

why she got 76 for the incredible

0:10:470:10:55

run for Kelly Clark, the judges

needed space to go, for Chloe Kim.

0:10:550:11:03

On the form that she has shown over

the last three years, it is almost

0:11:030:11:07

expected. There you have it, the

confirmation of first run schools.

0:11:070:11:13

Chloe Kim in Gold Medal position.

Liu Jiayu in second, Kelly Clark in

0:11:130:11:20

bronze medal position has become

tradition at Olympics, that was her

0:11:200:11:23

position at both Sochi and

Vancouver.

0:11:230:11:29

Vancouver. Arielle Gold, from a

snowboarding family, with her older

0:11:310:11:34

brother, Taylor. The frontside 1080

on the first hit. Is she going to go

0:11:340:11:41

a bit lighter? She landed it. She

has scrubbed a few degrees off of

0:11:410:11:48

the end of it, but she will take

that. The backflip on the third hit.

0:11:480:11:54

She needs to crank up the speed and

take a more direct line down the

0:11:540:12:00

pike, get the amplitude up. The

frontside 900. Lovely, the finish.

0:12:000:12:08

That is a very big run from Arielle

Gold.

A huge run. That is a cat

0:12:080:12:13

amongst the pigeons run, right

there. With this at the top of the

0:12:130:12:18

pipe. She didn't quite get it round

but she held the grab for a long

0:12:180:12:23

time.

Her Chloe Kim did the 1080 on

the second hit. She has upped the

0:12:230:12:33

risk level. I don't think she agrees

with that. Her face drop.

0:12:330:12:40

Interesting. Where can Kelly Clark

go? She had a brilliant first run.

0:12:400:12:46

Really, really strong.

Did she have

time to process what score just came

0:12:460:12:53

in there for Arielle Gold? That may

have affected what she then takes on

0:12:530:12:58

from that, what the judges are

looking for, etc.

There were

0:12:580:13:04

certainly a couple of holes, and

under rotation on the 1080 could

0:13:040:13:10

have been a big part of it. That was

even bigger! Kelly Clark is going

0:13:100:13:18

stratospheric. She's got to put the

ten in here.

She makes it again.

0:13:180:13:23

Really nice. The speed has

completely gone, but she can

0:13:230:13:28

generate speed. The thing she's

really good at is pumping those

0:13:280:13:32

transitions.

She is back up to near

enough the two metre mark. She had

0:13:320:13:38

both hands off the wheel, and

dripped onto the tail for that last

0:13:380:13:42

one. I think that is the biggest

first hit we have seen, the 1080

0:13:420:13:49

frontside air on the first hit.

There it was, both hands on the

0:13:490:13:54

tail.

That is so satisfying, isn't

it?

0:13:540:14:00

it?

81.75. They like the amplitude.

They definitely liked the amplitude

0:14:020:14:07

at the top. Queralt Castellet, no

doubt that this woman has the

0:14:070:14:13

ability to go stratospheric. Also

incredibly technical. Currently sat

0:14:130:14:20

in seventh place on 59.75. Lots of

work to do.

0:14:200:14:28

Beautiful style on the backside air.

Really nice.

Nice. The front nine,

0:14:350:14:45

into the backside 540. The speed is

there.

Come on. 1080? Yes.

Nice, she

0:14:450:14:55

has squeaked it round. She was a

little bit lower than she would have

0:14:550:14:58

liked to have been because she

landed solo in the 1080.

The

0:14:580:15:05

frontside 900 to the backside 540,

gets the grab on that, really nice

0:15:050:15:09

and solid. Is she joining the 1080s

four club for that? In the 70s. Wow.

0:15:090:15:23

Next up is Liu Jiayu, better known

as bogey. She has a great run in the

0:15:310:15:36

bag.

She is ten points ahead of

fourth place so she has breathing

0:15:360:15:39

room.

It is only four points.

Ahead

of fourth place. She is in the

0:15:390:15:48

medals by ten points.

Yes.

0:15:480:15:56

medals by ten points.

Yes.

Switch

backside air.

A better tweet on Mac,

0:15:560:15:59

I think. Into the switch seven.

Really nice. You can see her taking

0:15:590:16:04

a really direct line. Well else.

Huge line, absolutely massive. She

0:16:040:16:13

is happy. I think that was the same

run. She is just tried to go a bit

0:16:130:16:17

bigger honour to squeeze a bit more

out of it.

I would say was really

0:16:170:16:23

clean, the landings.

What it means

is that she is not thinking about

0:16:230:16:30

chasing down Chloe Kim, what it

means is she is into securing silver

0:16:300:16:36

medal position.

Cementing second

place, do you think any of the girls

0:16:360:16:43

actually have that mindset?

Lovely

grub and Loughinisland end.

She does

0:16:430:16:48

a good job of keeping her speed.

The

amplitude has worked for her.

It is

0:16:480:16:55

the finishes, that is what it is,.

She has put the pressure on this

0:16:550:17:05

woman.

Chloe Kim. Are we going to

see the back to back ten? We have

0:17:050:17:14

seen one at 1080 and she landed the

very comfortably two weeks ago at

0:17:140:17:20

the X Games.

I wouldn't be fulled by

the smiles and waves, she is a

0:17:200:17:24

fierce competitor and I think she

will unveil just why she is the

0:17:240:17:30

Queen of ladies halfpipe at the

moment.

Are we going to see the ten?

0:17:300:17:37

Yes. Oh! Chloe Kim is human after

all. The first 1080 was lower. It

0:17:370:17:44

was lower. She wasn't carrying much

speed but even though she landed it

0:17:440:17:48

is a perfectly it wasn't enough

altitude on the third it to get the

0:17:480:17:51

1080 around.

If that had been landed

there was no one else with the

0:17:510:17:58

back-to-back tens and that would've

closed the door on the gold but now

0:17:580:18:03

it is still open.

Confirmation of

the scores after the second descent

0:18:030:18:08

down this enormous super pipe. Chloe

Kim, Liu Jiayu you, Kelly Clark are

0:18:080:18:13

in the medal positions and Arielle

Gold has a 1080 just outside the

0:18:130:18:17

medals. All four of the American

team are in and the first of them to

0:18:170:18:26

drop is Arielle Gold. She landed a

brilliant run on her second run. Can

0:18:260:18:33

she now step it up and tidy it up

and make it as big and clean as it

0:18:330:18:39

is possible to get? If she can, it

could push Chloe Kim.

A really

0:18:390:18:45

could. She has arguably one the

biggest halfpipe contest outside the

0:18:450:18:52

X Games and you can get this done.

She can challenge for a medal.

0:18:520:19:00

She can challenge for a medal. Come

on, Arielle Gold.

Interestingly, her

0:19:000:19:03

dad said to her, back in the day,

when she first got into

0:19:030:19:07

snowboarding, he said most girls do

things the way girls do things and

0:19:070:19:10

you need to snowboard like the men

do. Or your brother who was also a

0:19:100:19:14

pro.

And also very good.

That is an

interesting comment.

We will discuss

0:19:140:19:23

after the run.

Fx Mac

huge 1080 to

kick things off. Switch seven and

0:19:230:19:28

build up the speed for the

amplitude. A nice backflip.

She has

0:19:280:19:34

lost some amplitude there. She

really has.

Frontside nine. Huge

0:19:340:19:41

McTwist. Heave Ho at the bottom and

the hands the air. Is it enough? Mr

0:19:410:19:48

Speaker is that enough? I don't

know.

0:19:480:19:54

know. I think the school was so

impressed because of the amplitude

0:19:550:19:59

and the fourth hit just did not have

it. She is grimacing because she

0:19:590:20:03

knows that backside air...

V how

cleanly she gets the trick around

0:20:030:20:07

because we know that is important.

It is a clean landing, look.

It is

0:20:070:20:12

not far off.

She under 90 degrees

and it is only Chloe Kim who have

0:20:120:20:19

backed cleaner and the first it is

huge.

0:20:190:20:27

huge.

Lovely grabs. Land is high.

She almost went a bit too straight

0:20:270:20:34

across the pipe. She should have

gone a bit further down and let it

0:20:340:20:37

run a bit. No, it is not enough. I

do not think it is enough. She is

0:20:370:20:44

claiming it but...

Well, it is

clean. Obviously she felt something

0:20:440:20:50

was better in that run.

0:20:500:20:57

was better in that run.

85.

And 11

point shift. That is huge. You can

0:20:570:21:03

hear the familiar USA child going

down. It looks like it could be the

0:21:030:21:14

third snowboard gold medal in the

pipeline. We have already seen Red

0:21:140:21:18

Gerard do it and Jamie Anderson do

it.

Kelly has got put trick into

0:21:180:21:24

this, hasn't she?

Another big trick.

She has two.

She is channelling her

0:21:240:21:29

in a Beyonce here, come on. Do as

Beyonce will do. A huge frontside

0:21:290:21:38

errant she lands a bit flat and it

kills the speed. Again a bit flat

0:21:380:21:42

but she is holding the speed. A big

frontside ten. It was beautiful. Now

0:21:420:21:49

switch seven. Again landing flat.

How is she still standing up?

That

0:21:490:21:54

was big.

A huge crippler and I think

that was the improvement.

That was

0:21:540:22:01

the extra heat as well.

Can Kelly

Clark move up the rankings with that

0:22:010:22:07

one?

How does she come back from

losing that speed and then she just

0:22:070:22:12

drives back into it.

She is without

a shadow of a

0:22:120:22:20

a shadow of a doubt magic at finding

speed in a halfpipe. She can find it

0:22:200:22:23

from nowhere. If you looped -- if I

landed flat like that you have

0:22:230:22:28

instant pins and needles in your

feet but she somehow manages to keep

0:22:280:22:30

the speed. Every time she landed lie

didn't think she could get massive

0:22:300:22:38

but she did. A big backside by that

you spoke about it, she is holding

0:22:380:22:42

the grabs here.

Look at that, all

the way around. Check this, it is

0:22:420:22:46

the only thing I would say something

about there, she does grab it a

0:22:460:22:49

little bit. Look at the height. A

little bit of the ballerina in their

0:22:490:23:03

but I don't hope to call this one

really.

0:23:030:23:14

really. 83.5.

It is a slight

improvement the Kelly Clark, but it

0:23:140:23:18

is not enough to overhaul Arielle

Gold. She remains in bronze medal

0:23:180:23:24

position and an agonising wait now

for Arielle Gold because we have ten

0:23:240:23:29

riders still to drop. Yellow macro

Kelly!

I feel a bit bad for Kelly

0:23:290:23:36

Clark. She was so close. But she has

more medals and more trophies than

0:23:360:23:43

anyone else. Give-macro she should

be proud of that. In the

0:23:430:23:49

snowboarding, not just women's

snowboarding. There was no one else

0:23:490:23:53

even in professional snowboarding

now who rides at this level who was

0:23:530:23:56

riding in Salt Lake City in 2002. 16

years ago. That is how long she has

0:23:560:24:01

been at the top of her game.

A great

start -- a great step.

Mirabelle

0:24:010:24:09

Thovex is going for this. She has

backed off.

Straightaway you can see

0:24:090:24:15

the difference in amplitude from the

run before.

You really can.

An

0:24:150:24:21

interesting choice of run. She used

that trick at the very top of her

0:24:210:24:28

run before. Was she going for a

switch backside five? She looked

0:24:280:24:35

like she was coming round for a

second then. She used it and then

0:24:350:24:40

inverted that run. It was the other

way around on the run first time

0:24:400:24:45

that's also highly for her. I cannot

see how this is going to...

0:24:450:24:53

Beautiful style. You can see it

definitely runs in the family. You

0:24:530:25:01

have never come across Candi Kovacs

before type it in and it will be a

0:25:010:25:08

display of the best free skiing that

is available in the world. This is

0:25:080:25:13

his

0:25:130:25:22

his sister,. The Thovex dynasty is

pretty impressive. It is an

0:25:220:25:25

improvement on the first run score

but she doesn't change position and

0:25:250:25:29

you remains in eighth place. The

pressure now comes back up to the

0:25:290:25:33

top of the pipe and she has been so

relaxed all day, Liu Jiayu of China.

0:25:330:25:37

Her nickname is birdie. Such a

relaxed rider. She has been taking

0:25:370:25:43

cues from some of the most creative

riders in snowboarding, Danny Davis

0:25:430:25:48

being one of them, and she opens up

this beautiful switch method, one of

0:25:480:25:52

the hardest tricks.

This is a

celebration of snowboarding right.

0:25:520:25:57

Get ready.

0:25:570:26:03

Get ready. Beautiful and really nice

height on the second hit.

Here it

0:26:030:26:07

is, the 1080, go on! 900.

She is

still so high.

The frontside ten.

0:26:070:26:16

Oh! She has gone! If she had landed

that we would have had a big game on

0:26:160:26:21

our hands. We would have had a big

game on our hands. Joanna Leigh

0:26:210:26:27

gives everything. -- Liu Jiayu gives

it everything.

She knows she is in

0:26:270:26:36

there. She looks over the moon.

Arielle Gold is absolutely made up.

0:26:360:26:42

This was a beautiful switch method.

Really difficult really hard and

0:26:420:26:47

definitely if you were to award a

stand that trick of the day for

0:26:470:26:51

snowboarders, I think it would be

the switch method. It is not Spinney

0:26:510:26:56

flippy thing but it is nice and

technical.

So high.

0:26:560:27:06

technical.

So high.

Cranking the

spin of the 900 and putting a

0:27:060:27:09

grabbing at the last minute. Tier

still the height so she think she

0:27:090:27:13

could actually do it. She had her

foot flat to the floor the whole way

0:27:130:27:18

through that run, fighting for the

spin. It is not pretty but, oh! It

0:27:180:27:24

has gone. She needed a bit more

weight over the toe edge and there

0:27:240:27:29

it is, confirmation the Chloe Kim

that she is the 2018 women's

0:27:290:27:33

snowboard halfpipe gold medallist.

Liu Jiayu knows that she is the

0:27:330:27:40

silver medallist.

0:27:400:27:45

silver medallist. Her second runs

scored gives her the silver. So, as

0:27:460:27:50

has so often been the case was Shaun

White, her fellow country person,

0:27:500:27:56

Chloe Kim will be gifted the lap of

honour.

I love this. She tweeted

0:27:560:28:01

this before she had even realised.

She has tweeted, when I finish my

0:28:010:28:09

breakfast, I wish I finish my

breakfast but I decided not to now I

0:28:090:28:13

am

0:28:130:28:18

am getting hangry.

Thank you for

bringing that gem.

She is eating is

0:28:190:28:25

pipe up for breakfast.

Please do the

back-to-back temp macro one.

She is

0:28:250:28:36

going!

Fx Mac

back-to-back 1080. She

had her legs turned on and there was

0:28:360:28:42

the McTwist that defies logic. A

final

0:28:420:28:53

final inverted seven. Wow! Following

in the footsteps of the Sean White

0:28:530:28:56

in Vancouver. She landed

back-to-back 1080 when she did not

0:28:560:28:59

need to.

0:28:590:29:04

need to. Absolutely brilliant run

from Chloe Kim and no disputing who

0:29:050:29:10

takes the gold medal. I think we

might be looking at the beginning of

0:29:100:29:15

a very long reign for the new queen

of halfpipe snowboarding.

Such a

0:29:150:29:20

strong rider, an amazing level of

riding. The back foot over the edge.

0:29:200:29:25

So difficult to get the body

position for that. As soon as the

0:29:250:29:33

front foot hits the lip she is gone.

She uncorks like a wild cobra and

0:29:330:29:36

comes all the way around and locks

it in and there, at that point she

0:29:360:29:40

is only looking at this trick. The

composure when she was over the

0:29:400:29:45

board. You need to have the 1080

know that you are landing it.

She is

0:29:450:29:52

clinging on there. I love that she

went for both of those and got them

0:29:520:29:56

just to make the point. She knows

she has already won but look what

0:29:560:30:00

she can do. I am so proud of this

standard of writing.

She should

0:30:000:30:06

write hangry more often. I am

terrible when hangry so we are fully

0:30:060:30:12

aware but it works for her!

Amazing.

That, ladies and gentlemen, if the

0:30:120:30:18

ladies halfpipe snowboarding at its

very best. 98.25! A phenomenal run

0:30:180:30:25

from Chloe Kim. Look at that. Look

at what it means to her and it is

0:30:250:30:31

not just the Americans in the crowd,

the South Koreans, her lineage and

0:30:310:30:36

South Korean and her parents

emigrated to Southern California

0:30:360:30:39

just before she was born. Now she

has written here and claimed gold

0:30:390:30:44

for two nations. Confirmation of the

result. In bronze medal position,

0:30:440:30:52

Arielle Gold, just missing out there

you see Kelly Clark. In silver it is

0:30:520:30:56

China with yellow gel and in gold

medal position, dominating women's

0:30:560:31:02

snowboard halfpipe it is Chloe Kim.

0:31:020:31:05

and solid. Is she joining the 1080s

four club for that? In the 70s. Wow.

0:31:050:31:10

Well done, have you feared with the

lovely support not only from home

0:31:100:31:15

but here in Korea?

I have some ice

cream so I am fine with that.

He did

0:31:150:31:23

tweak that you are hangry earlier

on.

I was getting very hangry and

0:31:230:31:29

not focusing because my stomach was

rumbling. But I just channelled all

0:31:290:31:35

that anger from having an

anti-stomach into my third run, and

0:31:350:31:38

I want.

Massive congratulations,

well done, how I was the standard in

0:31:380:31:42

that contest?

All of the girls put

their hearts into choosing the run

0:31:420:31:48

and I thought, I would just enjoy

it. And I did. I did enjoy it and I

0:31:480:31:54

got a silver medal for China, and it

is an honour for me and my country.

0:31:540:31:59

It was a really good showcase

women's snowboarding and you are

0:31:590:32:03

going home with a silver medal.

Where do you go here? Wow, that was

0:32:030:32:08

an amazing day. I was lucky to be

there. And all my family were here

0:32:080:32:16

to support me and all of my friends

here and back in China to support me

0:32:160:32:21

as well so I am so lucky.

It is not

luck, you have earned it, well done,

0:32:210:32:26

congratulations. Thank you so much.

I'm happy for my team-mate, Arielle

0:32:260:32:33

Gold, getting third. She had a rough

time in Sochi and this was what she

0:32:330:32:37

needed.

I'm so happy that we did it

together. And we're going to get

0:32:370:32:41

home wearing medals.

After the

disappointment of the women

0:32:410:32:46

Slopestyle final yesterday it was

great to see some riding today that

0:32:460:32:50

showcased the level of women's

snowboarding.

Jenny, focused with a

0:32:500:32:53

medals. Before I do, I have to give

an ageing mention -- a mention to

0:32:530:33:00

the amazing Kelly Clark who finished

fourth in what is probably a fifth

0:33:000:33:04

and final Olympics and she has been

a pioneer of women's halfpipe

0:33:040:33:07

riding. An inspiration to so many

women including Arielle Gold, who

0:33:070:33:12

came in bronze today.

She persevered

with that 1080 and landed at the

0:33:120:33:16

third and final one. Liu Jiayu, the

Chinese, fantastic final run but

0:33:160:33:22

neither of them could hold a candle

to Chloe Kim.

She's on another

0:33:220:33:25

level. She came as good as Shaun

White. With all that expectation and

0:33:250:33:31

pressure from the US and from her

new-found fans here in Korea, the

0:33:310:33:35

pressure was on the bus she won at a

canter. And with that final victory

0:33:350:33:39

run through the pipe she unveiled

the back-to-back pens, proving just

0:33:390:33:44

why she is the Queen of women's

halfpipe snowboarding. -- the

0:33:440:33:50

back-to-back tens.

We are moving

into a new era of women's halfpipe,

0:33:500:33:55

Chloe Kim, take a bow. We will find

out how the men get on tomorrow, can

0:33:550:33:59

Shaun White reclaim his crown?

Mr

Shaun White, the finest of his

0:33:590:34:05

generation. The eyes of the world

are on this man.

Absolutely massive!

0:34:050:34:13

USA!

A second gold medal. Shaun

White unveils the Tomahawk!

That is

0:34:130:34:25

against the laws of physics!

Absolutely phenomenal.

Time to head

0:34:250:34:33

over to the men's Cross country

skiing sprint. This event dominated,

0:34:330:34:37

as ever, by the Norwegians. Rob

Walker and Katie musk

0:34:370:34:49

Walker and Katie musk -- and Posy

Musgrave can talk us through this

0:34:500:34:52

one.

0:34:520:34:53

The reigning champion from Italy,

Federico Pellegrino. There is the

0:34:570:35:02

big Italian. Very impressive in

this, his less favoured style.

0:35:020:35:12

this, his less favoured style. There

is Klaebo. A massive response from

0:35:130:35:20

the Norwegian crowd to Teodor

Peterson. He got a silver, remember,

0:35:200:35:23

four years ago.

0:35:230:35:28

four years ago. That is Alexander

Bolshunov who took the under 23

0:35:310:35:33

silver, last year. Paal Golberg,

have to work really hard to come

0:35:330:35:41

through his quarterfinal.

0:35:410:35:51

Alexander Panzhinskiy, took silver

medal in Vancouver. The first

0:35:530:35:59

semifinal in the men's classic

cross-country. This is absolutely

0:35:590:36:06

loaded, this race. It is more than

good enough to be a final in its own

0:36:060:36:12

right. Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo

wearing two, alongside Alexander

0:36:120:36:16

Bolshunov, are very talented young

athletes from Russia, and the world

0:36:160:36:22

champion at the moment, Pellegrino,

in the distinctive blue of Italy,

0:36:220:36:27

alongside the speedy Teodor

Peterson. What a start this is for

0:36:270:36:34

Bolshunov. We know that Klaebo likes

to dominate from start to finish.

0:36:340:36:41

Bolshunov has had a great start. We

forget what a great young talent he

0:36:410:36:44

is. We forget that he's only as

well. In any other circumstantially

0:36:440:36:52

-- he would be the person that we

were all talking about what we're

0:36:520:36:56

talking about Klaebo this year. He

would prefer to be in first place

0:36:560:37:00

but he will not panic. You can get

the top of this run and turn round

0:37:000:37:05

and will be looking manoeuvre

himself back to the fun. Bolshunov

0:37:050:37:10

is doing a great job at the moment

to stay in the lead.

Giving himself

0:37:100:37:15

an opportunity as Pellegrino, the

world champion moves ahead of

0:37:150:37:21

Peterson. I wonder whether Bolshunov

will be aware that this type of Hill

0:37:210:37:25

plays to the strengths of Klaebo,

which is why he's trying to get

0:37:250:37:29

himself in a good, clear position

ahead of the inevitable attack from

0:37:290:37:33

the Norwegian Apple come from the

right-hand side of the Russian.

0:37:330:37:36

There goes Klaebo. There he goes. I

think that Klaebo will be putting on

0:37:360:37:45

the jets at the top of the hill. Try

to get in front, so that he has the

0:37:450:37:50

lead at the top of the hill. And

again, just able to put a bit of

0:37:500:37:55

space between himself and the rest

of the field. Pellegrino and

0:37:550:37:58

Bolshunov need to stay with them

when they come over the top but with

0:37:580:38:02

Klaebo in that front position,

that's way likes best, and just

0:38:020:38:06

fantastic as he comes over the top

of the hill. Brilliant acceleration

0:38:060:38:09

from the Norwegian. Allegri no

climbs a beautifully to move up from

0:38:090:38:14

third or fourth in to move up from

third or fourth into clear second

0:38:140:38:17

place.

He had nothing on Klaebo as

he came over the top. The leader was

0:38:170:38:24

the make absently certain and

suddenly Bolshunov, the early leader

0:38:240:38:27

is coming under real pressure.

The

trouble with having someone like

0:38:270:38:32

Klaebo around is people think, what

can we do to beat him, so Bolshunov

0:38:320:38:37

has tried to lead on the front, but

he has paid for it now because he

0:38:370:38:41

has tired. Pellegrino is looking

fantastic.

0:38:410:38:51

fantastic.

Klaebo showing real

class. Pellegrino on the left,

0:38:510:38:55

Bolshunov on the right and remember

only the first two guaranteed

0:38:550:38:59

passage to the final. Klaebo easing

up, Pellegrino closing him down and

0:38:590:39:05

Bolshunov will have to weight and

see whether he is good enough to go

0:39:050:39:08

through as fastest loser. Great

stuff from the Norwegian and the

0:39:080:39:14

Italian.

0:39:140:39:19

Italian. Bolshunov, paid a little

bit for his early pace. But he was

0:39:210:39:26

just desperate to do something to

ski the sting out of the finish from

0:39:260:39:33

Klaebo. Unable to do so on that

occasion. He will have to weight to

0:39:330:39:37

see whether that time is good enough

to go through as fastest loser.

Very

0:39:370:39:45

impressed with Pellegrino today. We

think of him as a skate specialist

0:39:450:39:49

and we don't expect much from him as

classic. Unlike the way that he is

0:39:490:39:55

skiing. Looking very smooth and

strong these uphill parts of the

0:39:550:40:01

course, which is very important to

get yourself in place for the

0:40:010:40:04

finishing sprint.

Klaebo, one race

away from Olympic glory, and

0:40:040:40:10

Pellegrino will be joining him in

that final. Oskar Svensson.

0:40:100:40:22

that final. Oskar Svensson. Two

Finns in this one. One of them the

0:40:220:40:29

fastest qualifier. That is why he is

wearing number one.

0:40:290:40:36

wearing number one. The Norwegian

Emil Iversen in this one, keen to

0:40:360:40:38

make amends for that tussle in the

team sprint at the World

0:40:380:40:43

Championships last year. Len Valjas

coming through in the quarterfinals.

0:40:430:40:55

You can tell how cold it is by the

fact that they are waiting to the

0:40:550:40:59

last minute to take off their outer

layers.

0:40:590:41:07

A big opportunity for these guys

now. You would have to say, no

0:41:140:41:19

disrespect to the six men lining up

that Klaebo or Pellegrino you would

0:41:190:41:24

fancy would be the favourites above

the six men here.

I think that first

0:41:240:41:31

semifinal for me was a bit stronger.

Being in the first semifinal against

0:41:310:41:43

them a little bit more recovery.

0:41:430:41:49

them a little bit more recovery.

The

fastest qualifier, Hakola, with the

0:41:490:41:54

Finns in the crowd getting very

excited.

0:41:540:42:03

excited. Emil Iversen, he was in

good form coming into the Olympic

0:42:030:42:06

Games. Evil fanciers chances as

well, coming into this. -- Emil

0:42:060:42:12

Iversen.

0:42:120:42:17

Iversen. And there is Ristomatti

Hakola. The second semifinal. Right,

0:42:180:42:28

who is joining Johannes Hoesflot

Klaebo and Federico Pellegrino from

0:42:280:42:31

the first semifinal in the big

showdown? Emil Iversen is trying to

0:42:310:42:38

close the gap down. Ristomatti

Hakola, the fastest qualifier, and

0:42:380:42:45

what an evening it is turning out to

be for the Finn. He was six in the

0:42:450:42:52

World Championships last year, is

going to give himself another

0:42:520:42:55

opportunity of making the big final

at this rate.

I quite like the

0:42:550:43:08

chances of McVitie. Svensson is

looking strong, and Hakola is

0:43:080:43:11

looking strong. -- of Iverson.

Hakola made the final last year, the

0:43:110:43:22

quickest qualifier. Not necessarily

the highest profile man we have been

0:43:220:43:25

talking about, but he's doing the

business. He is fresh. Emil Iversen

0:43:250:43:32

was second in one of the recent

World Cup races and he takes a

0:43:320:43:36

little look over his shoulder just

to see where Martti Jylhae is. The

0:43:360:43:44

first two and the times of the

fastest losers.

0:43:440:43:51

fastest losers.

I do that first

expect semifinal to be fastest just

0:43:540:43:58

with the depth in that one. But you

never know. These guys know that

0:43:580:44:02

they need to be in the top two, and

sometimes then, you don't mess

0:44:020:44:07

around with tactics. Looking hot at

the front, Oskar Svensson.

He's gone

0:44:070:44:16

to have to work harder. Ristomatti

Hakola wearing number one, wants to

0:44:160:44:21

make absolutely certain that he is

through to take on the best from the

0:44:210:44:24

first semifinal. Pellegrino and

Klaebo. Good pushing at the moment

0:44:240:44:32

from Oskar Svensson. Finland from

Sweden at the moment. It is building

0:44:320:44:37

up to what promises to be a

mouthwatering final between the very

0:44:370:44:41

best sprinters in the world. What

can Iversen do over the closing

0:44:410:44:46

stages to try to narrow this gap

from third to second? These two look

0:44:460:44:51

comfortable at the moment. Just got

to maintain their focus. They have

0:44:510:44:56

done the tricky right-hander. There

was a time between the two of them.

0:44:560:45:04

That was unnecessary. He didn't need

to mess around with pushing

0:45:080:45:13

Ristomatti Hakola there.

Ristomatti

Hakola is hoping to make it through

0:45:130:45:17

to a from excessive global final. It

finished last in the showdown last

0:45:170:45:22

year and this is much better from

him. Oskar Svensson, he can afford

0:45:220:45:26

to look over his shoulder. It is

Ristomatti Hakola and Oskar Svensson

0:45:260:45:32

and they will not be fastest losers

from this one so it will be

0:45:320:45:37

disappointing for the others.

Ristomatti Hakola Oskar Svensson of

0:45:370:45:48

the two men make it through from

this final.

Really nice game. They

0:45:480:45:55

were able to ski home without too

much stress down the finishing

0:45:550:45:58

straight.

0:45:580:46:06

straight.

Ristomatti Hakola cannot

be regarded as an outsider in this

0:46:060:46:09

one. This is where I got a bit tight

between the two of the man bearing

0:46:090:46:13

in mind how much they were clear of

the other skiers, it would have been

0:46:130:46:17

needless for one to take the other

out but it was close.

I think Oskar

0:46:170:46:22

Svensson was being a bit silly there

because wrist at it Hakula took that

0:46:220:46:27

corner of the white but he had every

right to because it was the line he

0:46:270:46:31

was naturally taking anti-wasn't

trying to block Oskar Svensson. They

0:46:310:46:37

know to get that out of their mind

and focus on the final now. One more

0:46:370:46:40

race to go.

Ristomatti Hakola is the

fastest qualifier and Oskar Svensson

0:46:400:46:47

in second. They are the two men who

will join the best of the first

0:46:470:46:54

semifinal in what promises to be a

mouthwatering showdown for gold.

0:46:540:47:02

mouthwatering showdown for gold. Can

anybody

0:47:060:47:11

anybody stop Klaebo in that final? A

giant proportion of the Norwegian

0:47:110:47:16

population will be tuning in for

this earned interrupting lessons at

0:47:160:47:19

school to take a few minutes out to

watch this race of great drama, in

0:47:190:47:23

which they have not just one but two

representatives.

I imagine Norway

0:47:230:47:28

will be on a big tea break at work

at the moment while they watch this.

0:47:280:47:36

OK, the snow has stopped and the

skies have cleared. The floodlights

0:47:360:47:43

illuminating the drama in all its

glory. Is this the moment as we

0:47:430:47:54

watch Paal Golberg, one of the two

Norwegians in this one. Various

0:47:540:47:59

Ristomatti Hakola. Is this the night

and the moment where Johannes

0:47:590:48:03

Hoesflot Klaebo turns all the

potential and all the World Cup wins

0:48:030:48:08

into Winter Olympic glory.

I am

nervous for him so I can only

0:48:080:48:14

imagine what he is feeling right

now.

He is making a statement with

0:48:140:48:19

the pink shades.

Matching gloves and

poles as well, very well

0:48:190:48:24

coordinated.

So many Norwegians have

made this long journey here to

0:48:240:48:31

Pyeongchang. It is a freezing cold

night and there hoping to be warmed

0:48:310:48:38

and illuminated by a 21-year-old

star in the making who delivers the

0:48:380:48:42

biggest occasion of his life. There

is Ristomatti Hakola, the fastest

0:48:420:48:47

qualifier. You make the final of the

World Championships last year. Can

0:48:470:48:51

he upset the bigger names on his

outside? Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo is

0:48:510:49:00

the new dominant force in cross

country sprinting. This is the

0:49:000:49:06

biggest test of his life. Federico

Pellegrino, a hugely charismatic

0:49:060:49:12

Italian and reigning world champion.

Alexander Bolshunov, the world 23

0:49:120:49:22

silver medallist in this event last

year. Long man of -- E Young man of

0:49:220:49:26

huge talent. Paal Golberg twice in

the top ten in the World Cup this

0:49:260:49:33

season, can get it right just as

accounts? This is the cross-country

0:49:330:49:36

sprint final for men. Watch the

fireworks fly. Klaebo is wearing two

0:49:360:49:46

and Pellegrino is of defending world

champion. He is wearing nine. Look

0:49:460:49:51

at the outside, Bolshunov trying to

put Klaebo under pressure. There he

0:49:510:49:56

is, the man on who an nation

expects. Can Klaebo deliver?

0:49:560:50:03

Bolshunov going to the front. That

will not panic the young Norwegian

0:50:030:50:07

just at the moment. Pellegrino is in

third, trying to close the gap on

0:50:070:50:12

the two Young pretenders up ahead of

him. Bolshunov from Klaebo.

0:50:120:50:20

him. Bolshunov from Klaebo.

A gap

opening up already on the field and

0:50:200:50:23

Bolshunov tried this in the

semifinal I tried to get in front

0:50:230:50:26

and not let Klaebo have its own way

and it didn't work in the semifinal.

0:50:260:50:30

We work in the final? I'm not

convinced her part.

Bolshunov is

0:50:300:50:34

doing that he can to give himself

the opportunity to produce what

0:50:340:50:37

would be a huge upset because he is

the favourite for this one, Johannes

0:50:370:50:44

Hoesflot Klaebo, there is no doubt,

but is one thing being a favourite,

0:50:440:50:47

you're got to deliver and Pellegrino

is not too far behind the world

0:50:470:50:50

champion in third.

There is a bit of

a gap there but it is no close deal.

0:50:500:50:57

Pellegrino is doing a good job to

close it back again. Elephantastic

0:50:570:51:01

ski in the second semifinal and he

made up the bitter ground here and I

0:51:010:51:05

am expecting Klaebo to do the same

as it did in the semi and I think it

0:51:050:51:09

will put on the Jets any time now.

He goes to the right of Bolshunov

0:51:090:51:14

and he gets a clear lane so he can

push forward and get in front.

He is

0:51:140:51:23

driving and pushing. He has got the

weight of the nation on his

0:51:230:51:27

shoulders. He is carrying that

favourite tag, but at the moment he

0:51:270:51:31

is living up to the hype. He has got

his own unique style and he is

0:51:310:51:37

streaking away from a world class

field now on a brutal incline and he

0:51:370:51:43

has made it look easy. Bolshunov

this class and in second place at

0:51:430:51:48

the world champion, Pellegrino, is

in third but surely this is now

0:51:480:51:54

Klaebo 's to take. He did the

monstrous climb in style. Yellow

0:51:540:51:58

Macri Best the field apart as he ran

across the top of the hill.

He was

0:51:580:52:03

tight at the bottom and it didn't

look like a sure thing but at the

0:52:030:52:07

top of the field he has clear Skase

-- space between man he could cruise

0:52:070:52:11

home now but I think he will keep on

pushing figures around the corner so

0:52:110:52:15

he can guarantee himself a

gold-medal.

We are watching a

0:52:150:52:20

separate battle here. Canas has the

club have looked over his shoulder.

0:52:200:52:24

He has taken apart and amazing field

and he is miles clear. You do not

0:52:240:52:31

see sprint races won by this margin.

Bolshunov is winning the battle for

0:52:310:52:36

silver at the moment but Pellegrino

is closing him down. It is a

0:52:360:52:41

glittering and glorious night for

Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo who lives

0:52:410:52:43

up to all the hype and expectation.

A new star is born tonight here in

0:52:430:52:50

gold chain. Pellegrino lunging for

the line to try and steal the silver

0:52:500:52:56

medal from Bolshunov. That was the

sideshow. The main attraction was

0:52:560:53:01

the star man delivering under the

most immense pressure with the

0:53:010:53:04

nominal style and grace. Johannes

Hoesflot Klaebo, remember the name,

0:53:040:53:10

you saw his first Winter Olympic

gold right here in Pyeongchang.

0:53:100:53:17

gold right here in Pyeongchang.

We

said we would see as star in the

0:53:190:53:21

making and he lived up to the hype.

It was unbelievable. Still waiting

0:53:210:53:25

to find out who got the silver and

bronze. Pellegrino has just been

0:53:250:53:30

confirmed as having the silver

medal, what an amazing ski from him.

0:53:300:53:36

It was by eight hundredths of a

second but Klaebo was already easing

0:53:360:53:42

up at the line. That is incredible

from a 21-year-old. Bearing in mind

0:53:420:53:48

just how much hype there would have

been around that race in Norway, and

0:53:480:53:52

he would have known that. He is on

social media and he knows the

0:53:520:53:56

questions he has been getting in

press conferences in the last 1.5

0:53:560:54:00

weeks here and the last 1.5 months

back in Norway, it was absolutely

0:54:000:54:04

phenomenal. Let us focus on the

brilliant lunch for the line from

0:54:040:54:09

Pellegrino. Making that huge frame

count. Two 100th of a second and he

0:54:090:54:18

had longer legs, it doesn't matter

how he did it, it was silver for him

0:54:180:54:21

and bronze for Bolshunov.

Brilliant

ski from Pellegrino. We shouldn't

0:54:210:54:28

take anything away from the other

two guys on the podium because they

0:54:280:54:32

had fantastic skis. Pellegrino will

find this really sweet. As we said

0:54:320:54:37

earlier, we discount in classic but

to come to take a tonight, he will

0:54:370:54:40

not care about all of those other

results. It was a great final,

0:54:400:54:44

absolutely brilliant.

The manner of

that victory reminds me of Usain

0:54:440:54:51

Bolt thumping his chest in 2008

unexpectedly and brilliantly winning

0:54:510:54:56

the first of his story Olympic 100

metre titles. A different surface, a

0:54:560:55:03

different man, the same impact. That

was absolutely huge from the

0:55:030:55:08

Norwegian. Races over that distance

are never won by that margin, that

0:55:080:55:14

was immense.

He has the confidence

and belief in himself and he came

0:55:140:55:18

here to win and anything less than a

victory, and a resounding victory,

0:55:180:55:21

that was what he was looking for. It

is just phenomenal. As you say, you

0:55:210:55:26

do not see people tap at the field

like that and to have metres of

0:55:260:55:30

space and be able to cruise across

the line with 50 metres to go is

0:55:300:55:34

just unheard of.

It was a privilege

to witness that race. Pellegrino

0:55:340:55:41

soaking up the adulation of the

crowd. It has been a really good

0:55:410:55:47

atmosphere and so many Norwegians,

Italians Swedes and Finns and even a

0:55:470:55:51

South Korean volunteers are getting

in on the action. Anyone there to

0:55:510:55:55

die is being treated to a really

great night of racing. Johannes

0:55:550:56:00

Hoesflot Klaebo is the Winter

Olympics sprint champion and he did

0:56:000:56:04

it in style. The world champion,

Pellegrino in second and Bolshunov

0:56:040:56:07

takes the bronze.

0:56:070:56:12

Pellegrino in second and Bolshunov

takes the bronze.
