Hello, and welcome to

Pyeongchang and Day 7

0:00:330:00:35

of the Winter Olympics.

0:00:350:00:40

After a dramatic Men's

bordercross final yesterday,

0:00:400:00:43

we'll see if Lyndsey Jacobellis can

finally claim that elusive gold

0:00:430:00:46

in the women's event

later in the programme.

0:00:460:00:51

But first, we're back down

to the Gangneung Ice Arena

0:00:510:00:53

for the start of the

men's figure skating.

0:00:530:00:55

Today, it's the short programme.

0:00:550:00:56

But who are the favourites?

0:00:560:00:57

Let's find out from Kat Downes

and Robin Cousins.

0:00:570:01:05

I think when it comes to the men, it

will be a case of the old guard

0:01:130:01:18

versus the young guns, coming up

behind. You have the reigning

0:01:180:01:23

Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu of

Japan, likely to retire soon. You

0:01:230:01:28

have the Spanish superstar Javier

Fernandez, who has said this is his

0:01:280:01:31

last season. They will look to go

out with a bang

0:01:310:01:34

last season. They will look to go

out with a bang but then you have

0:01:340:01:36

the quad jumping superstars, coming

up behind them! They will be looking

0:01:360:01:40

to topple the old-timers.

It will be

interesting, Hanyu is coming into

0:01:400:01:48

his first competition of the season

at the Olympics, we know what he is

0:01:480:01:51

capable of. He knows how it is to be

at the top of the podium in the

0:01:510:01:56

Olympics. He will do that again. His

team-mate, training mate, Fernandez,

0:01:560:02:01

he has been on the podium at the

championships, he knows it's his

0:02:010:02:06

last chance and he wants a medal.

The colour will be determined on how

0:02:060:02:11

he performs. He can be hit and miss

but when he is on, it's a different

0:02:110:02:17

style to Hanyu and I prefer it

because it is more natural,

0:02:170:02:21

instinctive and of the moment but it

is these youngsters. It is shown in

0:02:210:02:29

oh and Nathan Chen who has six

triple jump is available in this

0:02:290:02:35

programme, which counts for a lot of

points. -- Shoma Uno. They have a

0:02:350:02:43

long way and a lot to learn and they

will still get scores that are

0:02:430:02:47

capable of putting themselves on the

podium. They could upset the apple

0:02:470:02:50

cart.

0:02:500:02:55

CHEERING

COMMENTATOR: This guy is a real

0:02:550:03:00

entertainer. The superstar of team

USA, definitely.

Controversial, he

0:03:000:03:04

was fourth in the US championships

but the US selection committee took

0:03:040:03:08

into account the season as a whole

and past references. They brought

0:03:080:03:12

their US number one number three and

number four to the games, and at

0:03:120:03:18

Rippon proved in the team event that

he was the right choice. The first

0:03:180:03:26

openly gay winter Olympian for team

USA, outspoken against the Trump

0:03:260:03:30

administration, he is all over

social media. Adam Rippon is going

0:03:300:03:37

to let his ice skates do the

talking.

0:03:370:03:44

talking.

No quadruple jump land in

his short programme. He will want

0:03:440:03:53

the triple axel and the triple Lutz

to be pristine. A triple toe loop...

0:03:530:04:04

The triple axel... He has got it.

0:04:240:04:36

The triple Lutz... Lovely!

0:05:030:05:10

And the final element... Fantastic!

The spin. Not something you see in

0:06:010:06:10

the men's's event that often.

Phenomenal flexibility.

0:06:100:06:20

It is a party on the ice. A

superstar is born for team USA. Adam

0:06:200:06:27

Rippon, what a showman!

The red box,

the triple axel was not pristine.

0:06:270:06:33

The grade of execution for the

judges, on the minus there.

0:06:330:06:40

Everything else on the money. They

differ forward, the triple axel...

0:06:400:06:45

Watch this landing... And there it

is. The rest of it was brilliant.

Up

0:06:450:06:58

to the top of the qualification,

Adam Rippon of the USA. I expect we

0:06:580:07:04

will be seeing an awful lot of him.

Next, representing the Olympic

0:07:040:07:13

athletes of Russia, winning silver

in his first Europeans a couple of

0:07:130:07:16

weeks ago, Dmitri Aliev. It is his

first Olympic Games.

0:07:160:07:30

CHEERING

Beautiful.

0:07:430:07:56

Beautiful. Triple Lutz, I had to

verify. It rotated so fast!

0:07:560:08:07

verify. It rotated so fast! A

quadruple toe loop there.

0:08:070:08:13

A beautiful triple axel.

0:08:450:08:51

CHEERING

0:10:030:10:08

Wow! Wasn't ready for that!

We

didn't really know what to expect,

0:10:080:10:13

he suffered an ankle injury at the

start of the season, hampering his

0:10:130:10:17

preparations but he seems to have

made up for any lost time.

The

0:10:170:10:24

rotation... The triple Lutz and a

triple toe loop.

It is a massive new

0:10:240:10:33

season best for Dmitri Aliev. 98.9

eight.

Patrick Chan!

A superstar in

0:10:330:10:47

the world of figure skating, a

three-time world champion, winning a

0:10:470:10:53

record-breaking tenth Canadian

championship before these games. He

0:10:530:10:57

goes away from Pyeongchang with a

team gold for Canada. But he was the

0:10:570:11:01

weakest link in that team. Not a

great short programme, improvement

0:11:010:11:05

is needed now.

0:11:050:11:15

The quadruple toe loop, the triple

toe loop is what he wants...

0:11:270:11:30

CHEERING

Quadruple toe loop is what he gets.

0:11:300:11:39

The triple Lutz... Triple toe loop.

Smart move.

0:11:470:12:02

Triple axel... It is his Achilles'

heel.

0:12:320:12:40

APPLAUSE

That's a bit like the Patrick Chan

0:13:480:13:57

that won three world titles but

still a mistake. How costly will

0:13:570:14:01

that be?

He made the rotation, I'm

not sure why he wasn't wanting to do

0:14:010:14:05

the combination there. Maybe

tactically he was playing it safe,

0:14:050:14:09

but opting for an easier triple toe

loop, putting the pressure on the

0:14:090:14:17

triple axel. It is the Achilles'

heel. One of the Canadian

0:14:170:14:21

commentators calls the triple axel

Patrick Chan's virus.

The deducted

0:14:210:14:33

point there for hitting the ice.

Listen to this... Whatever comes

0:14:330:14:41

over the next 2.5 minutes, Hanyu

will be carried through his

0:14:410:14:49

programme on a wave of adoration.

The Japanese flags there. 360

0:14:490:14:55

degrees wherever he lurks in this

arena. The defending Olympic and

0:14:550:14:59

world champion... -- wherever he

looks.

0:14:590:15:07

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Quadruple Salchow, made even more

0:15:320:15:40

difficult by the entry from the

spread-eagled before and after the

0:15:400:15:43

jump.

0:15:430:15:46

APPLAUSE

0:15:510:15:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Glorious triple axel.

0:16:380:16:43

Quadruple toe loop, triple toe loop,

there it is!

And there is the roar.

0:17:020:17:13

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

And the roof comes off the rink!

0:17:540:18:01

Absolutely sublime from the

defending Olympic champion, Yuzuru

0:18:010:18:06

Hanyu, from Japan.

My hands are

shaking. My whole body was shaking.

0:18:060:18:10

That was absolutely glorious and

faultless.

Look at this mass Winnie

0:18:100:18:18

the Pooh sacrifice! He loves Winnie

the Pooh. Look at the fans!

0:18:180:18:28

the Pooh. Look at the fans!

Goodness

me, he delivered and it was not the

0:18:300:18:32

programme he delivered, he was

thinking about the quadruple loop

0:18:320:18:35

but that Salchow, glorious,

glorious. He is in a serial being

0:18:350:18:41

when he's on the ice.

It is like is

from another planet

news regularly

0:18:410:18:49

over 100, where today?

111.68, if

you need any indication of the

0:18:490:18:56

quality of the man, that's it, leave

the world record holder as well,

0:18:560:19:02

112.72, the world record, not far it

today. -- far off it. Nathan Chen of

0:19:020:19:10

the USA, the first man to live five

Quads in a free programme, the US

0:19:100:19:14

national champion. We saw him

skating in the team event but not a

0:19:140:19:19

good performance, those big jumps

not working for him so what can he

0:19:190:19:22

do individually?

0:19:220:19:24

His opening combination.

He's down.

Quadruple lobby macro, and down. --

0:19:490:19:59

quadruple lutz.

0:19:590:20:06

Stepping out of the quadruple toe

loop. Slightly off-kilter on the

0:20:580:21:02

take-off.

0:21:020:21:05

And also on the... Triple axel,

gone.

0:21:110:21:24

gone. Quadruple toe loop,

potentially a not valid element.

0:21:240:21:34

Well, there's been so much attention

on this young man's shoulders, just

0:22:120:22:15

18, because of what he can achieve

when he's at his best but you get

0:22:150:22:19

the impression this might not be his

Olympic Games.

Definitely not. He

0:22:190:22:26

wanted a quadruple lutz combination,

but fell on the lutz. And I think

0:22:260:22:33

the experience or lack of it is what

has shown here in young Nathan Chen.

0:22:330:22:43

82.27, his season's best is 104.12

so way down for Nathan Chen. Mikhail

0:22:430:22:52

Kolyada, the Russian national

champion, next, European bronze

0:22:520:22:54

medallist as well, last month he,

too, did not have a particularly

0:22:540:22:59

good performance in the short

programme in the team event so he

0:22:590:23:03

will be looking to pull the big

tricks out of the bag this time.

0:23:030:23:07

Another skater who has a quadruple

lutz plan and not just the triple

0:23:280:23:32

lutz, then. Playing safe, there. He

knows what has gone ahead of him.

0:23:320:23:43

Now what will he do for the

combination? Quadruple toe loop is

0:23:430:23:51

what he wants but he's down.

0:23:510:23:56

Is easy with the triple axel.

0:24:320:24:39

Beautiful positions, there are, for

the spin.

0:24:440:24:50

the spin. Not wavering off the spot.

0:24:530:24:56

APPLAUSE

Well, another mistake in therefore

0:25:540:25:59

Mikhail Kolyada. He is scratching

his head, thinking, "What on earth

0:25:590:26:04

went wrong, there?"

It was the Quad.

You can see the tension, the crooked

0:26:040:26:15

body-line with the left shoulder up

to the year, almost, it is not going

0:26:150:26:18

to happen. Spins are exquisite, they

are great, level fours for the spins

0:26:180:26:28

and a step sequence, so extra

points, there.

86.60 nine. Here

0:26:280:26:36

comes Shoma Uno, the world silver

medallist, skating at his first

0:26:360:26:40

Olympics at 20 years old. We saw him

perform in the team event. Japan

0:26:400:26:48

came fifth.

I love this short

programme.

0:26:480:26:59

Two quadruple jumps planned in this

programme.

0:27:020:27:14

There is the first, the quadruple

flip.

0:27:140:27:18

Quadruple toe loop, triple toe loop.

Fantastic stuff.

0:28:420:28:49

Just the triple axel.

0:28:550:29:01

Did very well to hold onto that.

0:29:010:29:10

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Shoma Uno, the dark horse of this

0:29:300:29:37

Olympic competition, lays down his

claim for a place on the podium.

I

0:29:370:29:42

do enjoy watching him skate.

Quadruple toe loop, a little tight

0:29:420:29:50

in the shoulders but down in the

knee.

Such a compact skater as well,

0:29:500:29:56

short but strong looking. 104.87 is

his season's best. Oh, just short of

0:29:560:30:07

his season's best, 104.17 but he

becomes the second skater today to

0:30:070:30:13

break the 100 Mark barrier. So here

is Yuzuru Hanyu's long-time rival

0:30:130:30:22

and training mate, have EA

Fernandez, two time world champion,

0:30:220:30:29

recently winning his seventh

consecutive European title and this

0:30:290:30:34

is his last time at an Olympics. He

has already said this is his last

0:30:340:30:39

season, he's had enough at the age

of 26. Retirement beckons.

0:30:390:30:46

Javi will open with the quad.

Toe

loop... Triple toe loop. Lovely

0:31:010:31:08

stuff, right in front of the judges.

0:31:080:31:19

The second jump, the quadruple

Salchow... Gorgeous!

0:31:200:31:31

A beautiful triple axel. Jump

elements done.

0:32:050:32:17

Here we go!

An Olympic medal. The

only thing missing from his

0:33:270:33:36

selection, it looks like Javier

Fernandez is out to put that right

0:33:360:33:38

at the last time of asking...

My

goodness, where do we start? A

0:33:380:33:46

perfect landing position from the

quad, to take the triple... Down on

0:33:460:33:50

the take-off with the quadruple

Soroko...

0:33:500:33:56

Soroko... -- the quadruple Salchow.

He didn't have the overall finesse

0:33:570:34:02

of Hanyu, technically, for me.

A

fraction of a mark of this season's

0:34:020:34:07

best. You are right, Javier

Fernandez of Spain slots in behind

0:34:070:34:15

Hanyu and Shoma Uno of Japan, in

second place.

0:34:150:34:23

second place. Next, the bronze

medallist at the last two World

0:34:230:34:28

Championships and 20 years old, he

is the one to watch for the last few

0:34:280:34:33

years... Jin Boyang the short

programme.

0:34:330:34:44

-- Jin Boyang, completing the short

programme.

Here is the first

0:34:530:35:00

quadruple Lutz... A triple toe loop,

and he has got it!

0:35:000:35:16

Quadruple toe loop, very nice

indeed!

0:35:300:35:41

Triple axel...

0:36:070:36:13

Don't forget me, says Jin Boyang!

Don't count me out yet!

Thrilling!

0:37:220:37:32

It is definitely over 100. Where is

he going to go?

The season best is

0:37:320:37:41

100.1 seven. Ballack pretty good to

me, season's best material. -- that

0:37:410:37:48

looked pretty good to me.

0:37:480:37:53

looked pretty good to me. It is a

new season's best. The breaks

0:37:530:37:58

through the 100 point barrier. Let's

have a look at the results from

0:37:580:38:05

today.

Shoma Uno in third. The

two-time world champion Fernando is

0:38:050:38:11

chasing his third Olympic medal.

Hanyu returns from injury to his

0:38:110:38:16

untouchable best, the favourite to

retain his title. If the short

0:38:160:38:21

programme is the building block for

the gold, Hanyu has laid the surest

0:38:210:38:25

foundation is down here today...

Tomorrow we have extended

0:38:250:38:29

highlights...

0:38:290:38:34

Here on BBC4 as the men

0:38:340:38:35

take to the ice in the free skate.

0:38:350:38:37

From the coast to the mountains and

all eyes were on Lyndsey Jacobellis

0:38:370:38:40

in the Women's bordercross.

0:38:400:38:41

The American has won

everything there is to win,

0:38:410:38:43

except the Olympic gold medal.

0:38:430:38:45

Is today finally her day,

at the fourth time of asking?

0:38:450:38:53

This is going to be awesome...

Lindsey Jacobellis, extending her

0:38:540:38:58

lead at the early stage on the

course. This is a lap of honour for

0:38:580:39:03

Lindsey Jacobellis. Ooh! She's down!

Look at this... It is incredible.

0:39:030:39:14

Lindsey Jacobellis has thrown her

gold medal away on the last 100

0:39:140:39:18

metres. This is ridiculous!

0:39:180:39:21

Well, can she finally do it?

0:39:210:39:22

Over to Ed Leigh and Tim Warwood.

0:39:220:39:27

So, the first of the

quarterfinals... Underway.

0:39:270:39:35

In a good spot on the outside there.

The French racer is out in front,

0:39:410:39:52

and still in contention, a very

tight group in the top three there.

0:39:520:39:57

Coming around the outside in the

blue bib is Alexandra took over.

0:39:570:40:05

It's very tight racing between the

top three. Just off the pace and ten

0:40:050:40:11

metres back...

Keep your eye on the

yellow trousers. It's a very neat

0:40:110:40:18

line, and it has gained her a few

metres here.

She got herself back in

0:40:180:40:27

the mix come on the inside! In third

place, she has qualified but she has

0:40:270:40:32

the defending Olympic champion

behind her.

She needs to be clever,

0:40:320:40:39

into the final straight... Turn on

those afterburners. Zoe, you can do

0:40:390:40:44

it! She didn't quite squashed that

jump. Nelly Moenne Loccoz is in

0:40:440:40:48

front.

0:40:480:40:54

front. It's the Bulgarian in first,

Alexandra Jekova.

What a shame! She

0:40:540:41:04

did everything right, Zoe, there. It

was a great race. Slap and bonds

0:41:040:41:09

fall of the riders. They all did so

well. And it was a clean race. It

0:41:090:41:15

wasn't too tight or bunched but the

lead changed a of times. Eva Samkova

0:41:150:41:23

came through. Zoe wasn't able to

send the jumps and low, popping a

0:41:230:41:30

bit too high of the first once

0:41:300:41:32

send the jumps and low, popping a

bit too high of the first once, that

0:41:320:41:35

was an amazing performance though,

from Zoe.

0:41:350:41:46

from Zoe. They advanced to the

semifinals.

0:41:460:41:52

semifinals. Zoe Gillings-Brier in

fourth. The next quarterfinal

0:41:530:41:56

contains the woman whose narrative

is why most people know about

0:41:560:42:02

snowboard cross, it is Lindsey

Jacobellis. She is in there with

0:42:020:42:06

Charlotte Banks, the Hemel Hampstead

born athlete who now races for

0:42:060:42:11

France. She came second at the last

World Cup, and she is very powerful.

0:42:110:42:18

Zoe Bergermann is in there.

Charlotte Bankes is out very

0:42:180:42:25

quickly! But the red bib of Lindsey

Jacobellis is there. Zoe Bergermann

0:42:250:42:33

is out... They've all gone down!

Charlotte Bankes is up again.

0:42:330:42:40

Charlotte Bankes is up again. Jacobo

less... And Critchlow of Canada,

0:42:420:42:47

showing a clean set of heels after

an enormous crash. Tyne doesn't

0:42:470:42:57

matter now for Lindsey Jacobellis.

If she is smart, she would back away

0:42:570:43:00

but they don't, they go neck and

neck.

Third place is hotly contested

0:43:000:43:07

as well. That is the most important

place. First and second doesn't

0:43:070:43:11

matter. These two are still going at

it!

Keep UI on them...

Lindsey

0:43:110:43:18

Jacobellis

0:43:180:43:23

Jacobellis is leading Critchlow --

keep your rye on them.

Zoe

0:43:230:43:27

Bergermann... The Canadian is still

in third, and comfortably. Ahead of

0:43:270:43:34

Casanova. So, Lindsey Jacobellis,

from Critchlow, with Zoe Bergermann

0:43:340:43:44

in third. Charlotte

0:43:440:43:51

in third. Charlotte Bankes, one of

the favourites taken out at the

0:43:510:43:55

first turn. Bankes... It is her own

fault, she goes down and then it is

0:43:550:44:00

the bounce back of Bergermann taking

down her opponent.

0:44:000:44:14

down her opponent. Charlotte Bankes

is back at the top. So...

She has

0:44:140:44:21

made it through?

Yes, the Canadian

was deemed to have gone through the

0:44:210:44:25

gate when she felt. We thought we

saw that.

0:44:250:44:31

saw that. We will move onto the

quarterfinal, number three. And it

0:44:310:44:35

another big pile of names. Chloe

Trespeuch, the woman with that

0:44:350:44:45

enormous argument with Lindsey

Jacobellis at the finish of the

0:44:450:44:49

World Championships. Megan Tierney,

and the first of our two Italians.

0:44:490:44:54

The red bib has gone down!

It has

taken her out. It's another massive

0:44:540:45:02

scalp. She has gone. So, the French

number one seed, Trespeuch, pumping

0:45:020:45:12

so hard. Starting to stretched

daylight ahead of Megan Tierney. The

0:45:120:45:17

fourth seed in the American team.

Keep UI on the battle there. It is

0:45:170:45:23

Raffaella Brutto against the

Russian, Christina Paul. -- Kristina

0:45:230:45:32

Paul. One of the most effervescent

races here. At the moment she is

0:45:320:45:37

holding off the Italian. So,

Trespeuch... Very much standard

0:45:370:45:43

there. The 21-year-old at her first

games, Meghan Tierney, but on the

0:45:430:45:51

flat section, Paul is guiding her

way through. Raffaella Brutto moving

0:45:510:45:55

up. It is very tight, Tierney makes

a mistake. Paul is in second place.

0:45:550:46:03

Brutto... Tierney rode into Tierney.

She jumped straight across. I do

0:46:030:46:11

think there will be a protest going

on.

Six of one, half a dozen of the

0:46:110:46:16

other. Tierney goes down before the

last jump. Regardless. Fisher in

0:46:160:46:22

fourth, and here comes Tierney,

going down on the last jump.

I think

0:46:220:46:26

it was a real and direct change in

the racing line by the Italian.

0:46:260:46:31

Number 19 on the shoulder.

Did she

closed the door on Megan Tierney?

0:46:310:46:37

She really did.

0:46:370:46:42

Faye Gulini, just...

Could not take

the compression. This is it. That is

0:46:440:46:49

the knuckle. That is made in

Tierney.

She jumps right across.

0:46:490:46:56

Raffaella Brutto did?

She came

straight across and slammed the

0:46:560:46:59

door, look at the change online, cut

straight across, clipped the air,

0:46:590:47:05

how Raffaella Brutto, there are,

with those stripey pants, managed to

0:47:050:47:09

stay on her feet, she did incredibly

well. Welcome it is deemed fair.

0:47:090:47:17

Yeah, the Americans losing two of

their squad in 1/4-final.

0:47:170:47:24

their squad in 1/4-final.

Well, it

is deemed fair.

Next up, the number

0:47:250:47:28

one seed if you looked at the World

Cup rankings, Michaela Moyer. --

0:47:280:47:36

Michela Moioli. Belle Brockhoff the

Australian, and the young

0:47:360:47:40

Frenchwoman, 16-year-old Julia

Pereira De Sousa Mabileau. Keep your

0:47:400:47:43

eyes on the blue-and-white striped

pants of Michela Moioli.

0:47:430:47:50

She can be very quick. Brilliant

start from Belle Brockhoff of

0:47:500:47:55

Australia but she has lost it

through the bird bath.

Yes, business

0:47:550:48:00

as usual for the Italian, out in

front.

The nominal board speed but

0:48:000:48:06

being chased by Pereira De Sousa

Mabileau.

The young French girl

0:48:060:48:09

doing very well but Belle Brockhoff

is not going to let this slide.

0:48:090:48:15

Gtech tears beat!

Yes, she soaked it

up and now she is in the fight with

0:48:150:48:19

Simona Meiler.

Simona Meiler had

fantastic board speed in seedings so

0:48:190:48:25

she will have trouble holding her.

Simona Meiler will be biding her

0:48:250:48:29

time in looking for passing spot as

they come into the big slopestyle

0:48:290:48:33

kicker, ignore must, Belle Brockhoff

with good board speed, stretching

0:48:330:48:37

out distant in third place. Pereira

De Sousa Mabileau making a move on

0:48:370:48:42

Michela Moioli.

Zuzanna Smykala

making it interferes, now. She has

0:48:420:48:50

pushed Carle Brenneman.

Someone down

at the back, I think it is Carle

0:48:500:48:57

Brenneman. Michela Moioli in front,

Pereira De Sousa Mabileau in second,

0:48:570:49:01

Belle Brockhoff in third. And then

Carle Brenneman in fourth. Michela

0:49:010:49:06

Moioli very comfortable, Pereira De

Sousa Mabileau followed by Belle

0:49:060:49:11

Brockhoff and in fourth, Carle

Brenneman. Michela Moioli from the

0:49:110:49:15

beginning, wasn't it? Brilliant

start from Belle Brockhoff in blue,

0:49:150:49:19

out first but as they came through

the bird baths, the first little

0:49:190:49:23

feature, she could not pump for

speed. That cost her but the

0:49:230:49:28

16-year-old French girl in second

place.

No business!

Michela Moioli,

0:49:280:49:34

Pereira De Sousa Mabileau, and Belle

Brockhoff will advance through. So,

0:49:340:49:42

keep an eye on Jacobellis in the

green bib. Eva Samkova, though, the

0:49:420:49:49

favourite in red, Charlotte Bankes,

Nelly Moenne Loccoz, blue and

0:49:490:49:52

yellow, Alexandra Jekova in white

and the Blackbeard of the Canadian,

0:49:520:49:55

Tess Critchlow.

Here we go,

semifinal number one, this will be

0:49:550:50:03

good.

The first three across the

line advance to the finals. For the

0:50:030:50:10

others, no consolation.

Eva Samkova

going out brilliantly in the mustard

0:50:100:50:14

trousers.

Charlotte Banks with a

brilliant start and a terrible bird

0:50:140:50:18

baths again.

All going big,

Jacobellis in the green.

Nelly

0:50:180:50:23

Moenne Loccoz leading with

Jacobellis on her heels and Eva

0:50:230:50:26

Samkova in fourth.

The white bib

proving Lucky for Alexandra Jekova

0:50:260:50:31

who is making a move on the

Frenchwoman.

Brilliant squash from

0:50:310:50:35

Jacobellis, taking the height out of

the job and going long and low and

0:50:350:50:39

now she has three metres out in

front of Eva Samkova, Nelly Moenne

0:50:390:50:42

Loccoz on the inside, Charlotte

Banks back from nowhere! How did she

0:50:420:50:47

get from the very back to the very

front?

She couldn't make it stick,

0:50:470:50:52

she tried to force Jacobellis who

can now apply the flush and crush on

0:50:520:50:56

her, ride her right to the top of

the corner.

Alexandra Jekova almost

0:50:560:51:01

done by Jacobellis eye to eye with

Charlotte Banks and now back to back

0:51:010:51:05

over jumping, Charlotte Banks is out

and Eva Samkova takes advantage to

0:51:050:51:08

slide into second, Alexandra Jekova

in third behind Jacobellis who looks

0:51:080:51:13

to be losing speed on her on the

home straight.

Eva Samkova, the

0:51:130:51:18

Olympic champion, in a mustard

trousers, can ride the final

0:51:180:51:22

straight so well, Jacobellis with a

nervous look over her shoulder, she

0:51:220:51:26

will remain in second, she will

advance but that is a warning shot

0:51:260:51:30

to Jacobellis. She needs to be

further ahead in the final on that

0:51:300:51:34

straight if she wants to take the

win because she has not got the

0:51:340:51:37

speed that Eva Samkova has.

Look at

Charlotte Bankes in the blue, all

0:51:370:51:43

the way back, suddenly, two turns

later, she is at the front.

Look how

0:51:430:51:48

much bigger she is going.

Alexandra

Jekova taking out Nelly Moenne

0:51:480:51:53

Loccoz, there. Look at this. This is

the view. Look at Jacobellis' board

0:51:530:52:01

speed, that was Eva Samkova's view.

Eva Samkova looking at Jacobellis

0:52:010:52:06

come here.

Eva Samkova, Jacobellis

and Alexandra Jekova making the

0:52:060:52:11

finals, and the other three are at

the back. Back up to the top again

0:52:110:52:16

now for the second semifinal. There

is no shortage of talent on this

0:52:160:52:21

side of the draw either. Blue and

white pants, straddling the red

0:52:210:52:25

pants of the French, keep an eye on

it.

The youngster has gone out like

0:52:250:52:32

a wet cat! Absolutely flying, here.

She did not read the script,

0:52:320:52:38

obviously.

Both of the French

upfront with Michela Moioli. Michela

0:52:380:52:45

Moioli really flying through that

section but Pereira De Sousa

0:52:450:52:50

Mabileau, tucked in behind them and

it is Chloe Trespeuch, now, diving

0:52:500:52:54

out in front.

0:52:540:52:59

out in front. Dragging but Pereira

De Sousa Mabileau really

0:52:590:53:01

slipstreaming in behind Michela

Moioli. On this gliding section, it

0:53:010:53:05

is so useful, she pops out from

behind the traffic.

Keep your eyes

0:53:050:53:10

on the fourth placed rider, Belle

Brockhoff. The experienced

0:53:100:53:15

Australian, the 25-year-old.

Michela

Moioli diving and taking Chloe

0:53:150:53:22

Trespeuch and Belle Brockhoff is

struggling, she needs a turn,

0:53:220:53:25

something to happen as they pull

onto the home straight and it starts

0:53:250:53:28

to become a pumping battle. Chloe

Trespeuch in second and Belle

0:53:280:53:32

Brockhoff is down! It is routine now

for the first three as Michela

0:53:320:53:38

Moioli goes long, Chloe Trespeuch

and Pereira De Sousa Mabileau.

No

0:53:380:53:43

time to look behind all see that

they are clear. But there we go. The

0:53:430:53:48

first three finishers advancing to

the final. The whole French crew

0:53:480:53:52

will be beside themselves for this

lady 's' snowboard cross final and

0:53:520:53:58

Chloe Trespeuch you've got to say

has not put an arm wrong. Smiles all

0:53:580:54:04

round.

Michela Moioli, so well liked

and Chloe Trespeuch, a woman who is

0:54:040:54:10

unrivalled in her competitiveness,

will do whatever it takes for the

0:54:100:54:15

win, here. Now we move onto the

women 's snowboard cross final, the

0:54:150:54:24

fastest six women who have battled

their way through the quarters and

0:54:240:54:27

the semifinals to this point.

Alexandra Jekova settling herself as

0:54:270:54:34

they await starters orders.

This

could go anyway.

Yes, they are all

0:54:340:54:39

very quick.

Bay.

Eva Samkova with a

great start and Michela Moioli.

Neck

0:54:390:54:49

and neck!

Pereira De Sousa Mabileau

on the outside, the 16-year-old

0:54:490:54:52

Frenchwoman may have the lead but

Michela Moioli and Jacobellis, is

0:54:520:54:57

it?

It is, upfront with the Italian.

The front lines being taken but

0:54:570:55:02

Jacobellis having a little look,

there. She's out in front. She needs

0:55:020:55:06

to hold on and make it stick.

Michela Moioli has been very fast

0:55:060:55:09

and look at Pereira De Sousa

Mabileau. And Chloe Trespeuch in

0:55:090:55:16

second.

Michela Moioli diving down

but Jacobellis' board speed, Michela

0:55:160:55:20

Moioli shutting the door and close

dress boot. Date burlesque and

0:55:200:55:26

Michela Moioli back-to-back, Michela

Moioli moves ahead, Jacobellis in

0:55:260:55:29

the fight of her life if she wants

the gold, she has got to go, she

0:55:290:55:33

slots in an Chloe Trespeuch, the

most technical section of the

0:55:330:55:36

course. Michela Moioli out in front.

Can they get some drag on her as

0:55:360:55:40

they come into this section? She is

so fast all season, five World Cups

0:55:400:55:45

under her belt. Look at the

youngster.

Pereira De Sousa Mabileau

0:55:450:55:48

has come from fourth to second, the

16 brought!

Eva Samkova at the

0:55:480:55:54

last-minute, it is neck and neck for

silver and bronze. Who is going to

0:55:540:55:58

get it? They are all down! It's all

over the place! No doubting who took

0:55:580:56:03

the gold it is Michela Moioli. But

the equipment says Pereira De Sousa

0:56:030:56:08

Mabileau is in second. Look at them,

they have given everything they have

0:56:080:56:13

got to this course. They are laying

down, Chloe Trespeuch, Jacobellis,

0:56:130:56:21

none of them know, Michela Moioli is

limping but celebrating. That was as

0:56:210:56:28

intense as sport gets. One of the

closest races, not just in Olympic

0:56:280:56:36

women's snowboard cross history but

of all time. Jacobellis, here,

0:56:360:56:43

talking up early, just her inertia

gets her out in front of the light

0:56:430:56:47

bones of Pereira De Sousa Mabileau.

Pereira De Sousa Mabileau goes from

0:56:470:56:53

first to third in the corner, Chloe

Trespeuch all over her now.

This is

0:56:530:56:58

on board with Eva Samkova and you

get such a brilliant idea of how

0:56:580:57:03

tight this racing is. Eva Samkova

very smart, staying out of traffic

0:57:030:57:06

on the outside.

Is this the bottom

jump? Yes, Chloe Trespeuch, oh, my

0:57:060:57:15

goodness...

I tell you what, nothing

between Jacobellis and Eva Samkova,

0:57:150:57:19

there.

Eva Samkova on the far left,

I think if Chloe Trespeuch...

0:57:190:57:26

Michela Moioli, Pereira De Sousa

Mabileau...

It was Eva Samkova and

0:57:260:57:34

Jacobellis, so Eva Samkova at the

top, Jacobellis down at the bottom,

0:57:340:57:37

here. Goodness, gracious, what a

final! Thank you, boardercross! So

0:57:370:57:47

official results are in, then from

the ladies' snowboard cross final

0:57:470:57:54

and that is

0:57:540:57:56

That's all from us for now.

0:57:560:57:57

I'll be back at midnight with live

coverage of what could be a very

0:57:570:58:00

very exciting day for Great Britain

with genuine medal chances

0:58:000:58:03

in the women's skeleton,

ski slopestyle and the return

0:58:030:58:05

of Elise Christie to the ice.

0:58:050:58:06

"Pali pali" means "faster,

faster" in Korean and that's

0:58:060:58:08

what we need them all to do!

0:58:080:58:10

Bye for now.

0:58:100:58:13

Christie is out of it once again!

0:58:410:58:44

Extended highlights of the men's short programme in the figure skating and the women's snowboard cross.
