We've reached the halfway stage

of the Winter Olympics...

0:00:340:00:37

Welcome to Pyeongchang and Day 8.

0:00:370:00:43

Coming up later in the programme,

we'll find out how Great Britain's

0:00:510:00:53

Katie Summerhayes and Izzy Atkin got

on in the Women's Ski Slopestyle.

0:00:530:00:58

But first, we'll see

the Men's Free Dance and find out

0:00:580:01:01

who claimed the third figure skating

gold medal of these Games.

0:01:010:01:06

Over to Kat Downes and Robin Cousins

who are in the commentary

0:01:060:01:09

box for this one...

0:01:090:01:12

Now, young Nathan Chen, which Nathan

are we going to see today? Just 18,

0:01:170:01:21

so much pressure on his shoulders,

he's received a lashing in the

0:01:210:01:26

American press over the last few

days because of huge mistakes in

0:01:260:01:29

short programmes in both the team

event and the individual, but this

0:01:290:01:34

could be great. The pressure is off.

0:01:340:01:43

Absolutely glorious, that, to open.

0:01:500:01:53

The second quad, quadruple flip,

double toe loop.

0:02:160:02:29

Another quad flip, hands down,

rotation.

0:02:430:02:48

Quadruple toe loop, triple toe loop.

0:04:050:04:11

And another.

0:04:160:04:18

And another. Quadruple salco, that

time.

0:04:400:04:49

This is the performance he needed to

give.

0:05:070:05:17

CHEERING

I'll show you, says Nathan Chen.

0:05:590:06:08

Write me off as a flash in the pan

at your peril. He answers his

0:06:080:06:12

critics with some whopping quads.

History had been made, one, two,

0:06:120:06:20

three, four, five, six quadruple

jumps. That's the one with the hand

0:06:200:06:27

down, and the rotation, no question

about him getting around their in

0:06:270:06:31

that programme, and a score of

around 127, a whopping 83.09 points

0:06:310:06:39

from those quadruple jumps alone.

So

Nathan Chen the first man to lead

0:06:390:06:45

five quadruple jumps in a free

skate, now the first man to land six

0:06:450:06:48

and at the Olympics as well. Wow!

215.08.

That is a new world record,

0:06:480:07:02

I believe, for that free skate

school.

A 40 point lead at the top

0:07:020:07:06

of the standings. Jin Boyang, a

World Championship bronze medallist

0:07:060:07:15

last year, and a great short

programme from him and kept him in

0:07:150:07:18

the mix. He'll be looking to keep

the pressure on Shoma Uno, Javier

0:07:180:07:26

Fernandez, even. His programme,

shooting for the stars.

0:07:260:07:33

Four quadruple jumps planned in this

programme.

0:07:330:07:37

First one, the Lutz.

You almost get

the edge.

It was glorious, but how

0:07:470:07:56

close was that to the wall? -- he

almost hit the edge.

0:07:560:08:07

almost hit the edge. Second planned

one is the quadruple Salchow. He has

0:08:070:08:12

got that as well.

0:08:120:08:14

Triple axel loop, triple Salchow.

0:08:280:08:39

Quadruple toe loop. Completely off

kilter on take-off of that.

0:09:520:10:02

Another one planned, so can he do it

in the combination? Yes, he can, but

0:10:100:10:21

just with the double toe loop.

0:10:210:10:24

Triple axel.

0:10:310:10:34

Triple Lutz, triple toe loop. Triple

flip.

0:10:480:11:04

Going Galactic, Jin Boyang rocketing

into the medals for now.

It doesn't

0:11:590:12:07

inspire as an overall performance.

Under rotated on the quad. It hasn't

0:12:070:12:14

come up as under rotated, but they

haven't had a chance to see that

0:12:140:12:20

slow Mo, but I would call that

under.

194.45. Enough just to knock

0:12:200:12:30

Nathan Chen off the gold medal

position for now. But how

0:12:300:12:34

comfortable will the weight of

history sit on the shoulders of this

0:12:340:12:36

man? The reigning Olympic and world

champion, Yuzuru Hanyu, looking to

0:12:360:12:45

be the first man to win consecutive

gold medals at the Olympics in 66

0:12:450:12:49

years since the American take Button

in 1948 and 1952.

0:12:490:13:01

in 1948 and 1952. -- Dick Button.

Opening jump is the quadruple

0:13:030:13:08

Salchow.

He's got it.

It may not

have appeared three times in the

0:13:080:13:17

warm up, but it appeared when it

needed to happen. Write a in the

0:13:170:13:20

opening of his free programme. --

right here in the opening. Second

0:13:200:13:26

quad planned. And there it is.

Exquisite quadruple toe loop.

0:13:260:13:40

Triple flip.

0:13:450:13:47

The quadruple Salchow, triple toe

loop combination. He is absolutely

0:15:210:15:25

on the money.

0:15:250:15:33

The triple axel loop, the triple

Salchow.

0:16:020:16:13

Saved on the triple Lutz.

0:16:230:16:34

CHEERING

APPLAUSE

0:17:240:17:30

Hanyu with sales on his skates. That

surely is enough for him to retain

0:17:310:17:36

his Olympic title? There were some

mistakes in there. It wasn't in my

0:17:360:17:42

-- it wasn't the mind blowing

performance of the short programme.

0:17:450:17:51

He gets a credit for the quad. They

needed to be a combination. Lutz, he

0:17:510:17:56

is leaning. Don't put your hand

down!

In the free programme, Hanyu

0:17:560:18:06

has earned...

CHEERING

0:18:060:18:10

A new season best. 20 points clear

at the top of the leaderboard.

0:18:100:18:15

Surely, ladies and gentlemen, that

is the 2018 Olympic champion? The

0:18:150:18:25

two-time world champion Javier

Fernandez, with his sixth

0:18:250:18:29

consecutive European title just last

month. He is only three points

0:18:290:18:34

behind Hanyu after the short

programme. This is his last

0:18:340:18:38

Olympics. He will retire at the end

of the season and would dearly love

0:18:380:18:42

to finish with a medal.

And if he

goes clean and all of the quads, he

0:18:420:18:48

could do it...

0:18:480:18:54

could do it... The quadruple toe

loop to open.

0:18:550:19:01

The second quad in combination he

wants... Quadruple Salchow. Double

0:19:140:19:20

toe loop. A right quad triple.

0:19:200:19:28

For triple axel, a triple toe loop.

0:19:420:19:48

He needs this second quadruple

Salchow, and just a double...

0:20:480:20:56

A triple axel... Lovely!

0:21:230:21:26

CHEERING

APPLAUSE

0:23:100:23:13

Guts and glory for Fernandez. He has

Big Blue the World Championship

0:23:130:23:17

twice but never an Olympic medal.

Surely he will be coming away from

0:23:170:23:24

Pyeongchang with one? But what

colour?

I think he needed the quad

0:23:240:23:28

if he was going to be pushing for

the gold but the performance is

0:23:280:23:34

glorious. He is so at home Alabama.

He loves it, and he delivers.

-- he

0:23:340:23:41

is so at home here.

0:23:410:23:47

is so at home here. It is the

season's burst. 197.6 X, but it is

0:23:470:23:53

not enough for a gold medal.

0:23:530:24:01

not enough for a gold medal. Schomer

is no knows that he must go

0:24:010:24:07

perfectly -- Shoma Uno knows that he

needs to go perfect, less than one

0:24:090:24:14

point ahead of Jin Boyang.

0:24:140:24:23

point ahead of Jin Boyang.

I

absolutely love this programme! Uno

0:24:230:24:29

didn't have a great warm up. Down on

the first of his quads, the quad

0:24:290:24:40

loop.

Could that mean a medal gone?

Three more planned. The programme,

0:24:400:24:48

collectively, is so strong. He will

not want to make another mistake.

0:24:480:24:54

The second quad is the flip... And

he has it!

0:24:540:25:05

And into the triple axel...

0:26:540:27:00

The quadruple toe loop, the double

toe loop, not the best landing on

0:27:160:27:22

the double. Two feet down.

0:27:220:27:29

That was the fourth quadruple toe

loop. And, it was the best one.

0:27:470:28:00

This may be crucial... The triple

axel loop, triple flip, that may

0:28:010:28:10

well be the bronze medal, right

there.

0:28:100:28:16

there. The triple Salchow, double

toe loop...

0:28:170:28:29

Less than one point between Uno and

no medal at all. Has he done enough

0:28:530:29:01

to hang onto the bronze medal

position?

A deduction for the fall.

0:29:010:29:09

That drops by four points. The last

quad was the best of them all but he

0:29:090:29:16

delivers such a strong performance.

I would like to think that the

0:29:160:29:20

component scores are working in his

favour...

He has bumped Javier

0:29:200:29:31

Fernandez. It is a Japanese one and

two. Javier Fernandez has too subtle

0:29:310:29:37

for a bronze medal.

It is phenomenal

for Javier Fernandez.

History made!

0:29:370:29:47

Back Olympic titles. Those are the

tears of a champion. Let's have a

0:29:470:29:52

look at the final combination.

Javier Fernandez, not the fairy tale

0:29:520:29:56

gold with which you wanted to end

his career, pipped into bronze medal

0:29:560:30:01

position by Uno. Then Hanyu,

back-to-back Olympic titles. He

0:30:010:30:05

surely will go down as one of the

greatest skaters there has ever

0:30:050:30:09

been.

You have made history, the

first man in over 60 years to win

0:30:090:30:16

back-to-back gold medals. How are

0:30:160:30:18

first man in over 60 years to win

back-to-back gold medals. How are

0:30:180:30:19

you feeling now?

Just happy. I

cannot... Aah! I cannot think of any

0:30:190:30:27

more words. I just want to say I'm

happy.

It feels good. It wasn't a

0:30:270:30:35

gold or a silver but it was an

Olympic medal and something I always

0:30:350:30:39

wanted. My family and me put a lot

of work in today. Definitely super

0:30:390:30:44

happy that I got it today.

I know

you are very good friends with

0:30:440:30:49

Hanyu. What did it mean to share the

podium with him?

It meant a lot. We

0:30:490:30:54

work every day almost together. And

we see how hard it is. We put in a

0:30:540:31:01

lot of effort. To have both of us on

the podium, it makes a super happy.

0:31:010:31:10

He's an amazing skater, really

talented.

Those screams are for

0:31:100:31:17

Hanyu, the back-to-back Olympic

champion. Retaining his title from

0:31:170:31:22

four years ago. What a competition

it was. He was not played perfect

0:31:220:31:26

but he did not need to be?

They were

all on fire and delivered what they

0:31:260:31:32

could. For Hanyu, he had some leeway

in the bag with the short programme

0:31:320:31:37

but he delivered those quads and

skated beautifully. This is the

0:31:370:31:40

perfect podium, and it is exactly

right.

Uno jumping above Javier

0:31:400:31:46

Fernandez to snatch a silver medal.

A brilliant skate from him. We'll

0:31:460:31:52

Javier be disappointed

0:31:520:31:57

Javier be disappointed with a bronze

medal? He has never won an Olympic

0:31:590:32:01

medal before. He retires at the end

of the season. It could have been a

0:32:010:32:04

sober? I think he will be slightly

disappointed but happy enough --

0:32:040:32:08

could it have been a silver? For me,

Uno delivered the last couple of

0:32:080:32:14

jumping passes and for me he

definitely got the bronze. Possibly

0:32:140:32:18

come he could get into a silver

position. Last week I told you that

0:32:180:32:23

he was my dark horse, and it was the

three best performers on the day on

0:32:230:32:28

the podium.

0:32:280:32:29

There's a day off for

the figure skaters tomorrow

0:32:290:32:32

but we'll have extended highlights

of the Ice Dance event on Monday.

0:32:320:32:34

Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland

in action for Team GB.

0:32:340:32:37

Earlier, their British team-mates

Izzy Atkin and Katie Summerhayes

0:32:370:32:39

were both trying to get to the final

of the Women's Ski Slopestyle.

0:32:390:32:42

Izzy won a silver medal

at the X-Games last month

0:32:420:32:45

and is in with a real chance

of a medal.

0:32:450:32:48

She's been speaking to Tim Warwood.

0:32:480:32:54

I'm Izzy Atkin. I'm 19. And I may

free skate.

0:32:560:33:05

free skate. -- I am a free skate. I

was born in the United States and I

0:33:050:33:08

chose to be part of the GB team.

I'll be competing in slopestyle at

0:33:080:33:12

the Winter Olympics.

What is your

connection to the UK, your dad is

0:33:120:33:18

from... ?

Birmingham. We grew up

there. He went to America for grad

0:33:180:33:26

school. Before coming out here, we

went to visit my grandfather who

0:33:260:33:28

still lives in Birmingham.

I hear

that Tamworth is your favourite

0:33:280:33:34

place to be in the UK.

It's really

fun.

It's good. When did you decide

0:33:340:33:41

ski slopestyle was for you?

I used

to do pipe and slope and when I was

0:33:410:33:48

15 I decided pipe was too scary, and

is decided to stick with slopestyle.

0:33:480:33:54

It made sense to me.

Next step was

to meet patch Sharples, the coach.

0:33:540:34:04

After spotting her talent, she

became a member of the GB squad.

I

0:34:040:34:09

went to visit him in England and he

was keen to get me on the team. I

0:34:090:34:14

went to my first training camp and

met the rest of the team.

To be

0:34:140:34:20

training alongside Katie and the

others, it must be a good setup for

0:34:200:34:26

you.

It's awesome, we'll push each

other and it's a fun crew.

Practice

0:34:260:34:33

makes perfect. Last year, not only

did Izzy become the first British

0:34:330:34:37

woman to win gold at world ski

slopestyle competition, but she did

0:34:370:34:41

us proud at the World Championships

in the Sierra Nevada, Spain. A

0:34:410:34:47

really tightly run, and this is

looking very good indeed. And she

0:34:470:34:50

claims it! It's about action. The

bronze medal.

0:34:500:34:58

I was happy to come away with a good

result.

That confidence is carried

0:34:580:35:03

forward into this season. In

January, Izzy won World Cup bronze

0:35:030:35:09

in Aspen and followed that up with

silver at the X games. What is your

0:35:090:35:15

mindset?

Feeling good, trying not to

put too much pressure on myself,

0:35:150:35:18

just want to scheme my best.

What

it's going to take to get on the

0:35:180:35:24

podium, any idea?

Learning some new

tricks, a lot of other girls are

0:35:240:35:29

loaning them as well, so it's going

to be a challenge, but I'm looking

0:35:290:35:36

forward to it.

The format is simple,

three runs and her best one will

0:35:360:35:43

count. This paste qualify, Mathilde

Gremaud. Really nice. Not as tidy as

0:35:430:35:52

qualifying, but still very

technical.

That was a silky 900.

0:35:520:35:57

qualifying, but still very

technical.

That was a silky 900.

It

0:35:570:35:58

was, very smooth. First of the

double courts. There is!

I don't

0:35:580:36:08

think it will be any surprise to see

Mathilde Gremaud moving into the top

0:36:080:36:11

spot.

Very good.

Team-mate, Sarah

Hoefflin, put down a strong run and

0:36:110:36:21

was sitting in silver medal after

that. Katie and Izzy landed their

0:36:210:36:28

runs, but both had room for

improvement going into Ron two.

0:36:280:36:31

Katie Summerhayes, Sheffield steel,

she's been told by the GB physio it

0:36:310:36:38

may not be in her best interests to

ride, her ankle is giving her a lot

0:36:380:36:42

of pain.

0:36:420:36:44

And there is the 450 out, that is

nice, really solid rails from

0:36:460:36:53

Summerhays. She's got that slide

nicely, locking those two together.

0:36:530:37:02

And a big 900. She punches the air.

Come on, Katie Summerhayes!

0:37:020:37:13

Come on, Katie Summerhayes! 71.4. A

little nod of the head. It pushes

0:37:140:37:17

her in to fourth position. Next to

drop, Isabel Atkin.

0:37:170:37:27

drop, Isabel Atkin. Lovely 450 off.

Really nice.

Landed much cleaner

0:37:270:37:32

than last time.

Judges looking for

subunit in different directions.

0:37:320:37:38

Right, left side spins. Now switch.

900 on the bottom job.

And it is a

0:37:380:37:46

very tidy... 79.4. Izzy Atkin moves

into the third and final runs in

0:37:460:38:01

bronze position.

Izzy Atkin remained

in third. Sarah Hoefflin was in

0:38:010:38:06

silver medal position and Mathilde

Gremaud was in first.

Maggie Voisin.

0:38:060:38:14

She's looked this good on the rails

every time. The last jump has eluded

0:38:140:38:18

her. Now the focus and the pressure

boils down to the kickers. Lovely

0:38:180:38:28

nine on the first hit.

Really nice

900.

She's got that one. Can she

0:38:280:38:37

hold it together now when it

matters?

She's gone big.

Yes, she

0:38:370:38:44

can, a very clean run. 81.2. So

third place, she bumps Izzy Atkin

0:38:440:38:54

down into fourth. Hoefflin as the

run, the consistency, the style and

0:38:540:39:05

technicality to take the top spot.

Very tidy, maybe not the cleanest

0:39:050:39:10

rail jumps, but no mistakes.

0:39:100:39:12

Lovely style.

Big grab, really

scratching at the 1080.

She went

0:39:160:39:28

huge on that.

It was the 900, oh,

and she gets it round!

Sarah

0:39:280:39:35

Hoefflin, a very strong run.

0:39:350:39:41

Hoefflin, a very strong run. 91.2,

putting her in gold medal position.

0:39:420:39:48

Katie Summerhayes was clearly

struggling with an injured ankle and

0:39:480:39:52

wasn't able to improve on her second

run score.

Isabel Atkin, watch as --

0:39:520:39:58

what has she got in her run? Pat

Sharples just said, you are a boss,

0:39:580:40:06

skiing amazing.

Just cleared this

run up, the biggest run of her life

0:40:060:40:14

starts now.

Mechanical with the 450,

laid it down heatedly.

0:40:140:40:23

laid it down heatedly. --

beautifully. Locks that in

0:40:250:40:26

beautifully, coming up from the site

and tilting the skis into it. Gap

0:40:260:40:29

over. This run is flowing for love.

Dare I say it, the best rails we've

0:40:290:40:39

seen from Earth. 720 is there. Come

on, Izzy Atkin. 900 is there. Final

0:40:390:40:47

jump.

0:40:470:40:49

Super-clean.

A bigger and clean it

run from Izzy, it might back into

0:40:520:41:02

the medals.

Third-place! 84.6. With

three left, Izzy Atkin is in bronze

0:41:020:41:10

position.

Johanne Killi put them a

solid run, pushing Katie

0:41:100:41:18

interceptions, but it didn't score a

highly enough to trouble 93 macro --

0:41:180:41:24

Izzy.

Two skiers left to drop.

Christiansen, currently on 24. She

0:41:240:41:35

has put very clean runs down, but

hasn't managed to put her last trip

0:41:350:41:38

down. Can she make amends? Second of

the new wage and -- the Norwegians.

0:41:380:41:49

You don't get a sense of how high

that rail is from that camera angle.

0:41:490:41:56

Last jump, really short.

0:41:560:42:00

Very difficult to call it. Izzy

Atkin can't work.

No, she's gone.

0:42:050:42:13

60.4. Now only one score away from a

bronze medal here at the women's ski

0:42:130:42:19

slopestyle, with the third placed

qualifier, Emma Dahlstrom, yet to

0:42:190:42:24

drop. She looked so relaxed in

qualifying, but the pressure is

0:42:240:42:29

telling on the third and final run.

She is yet to land a run. Can she do

0:42:290:42:34

it now? The 450, exactly the same as

Izzy Atkin.

I feel like I've been in

0:42:340:42:41

this place for, four years ago, the

women's snowboard slopestyle.

She's

0:42:410:42:48

down! And that, ladies and

gentlemen, confirms the medals.

0:42:480:42:54

Great Britain's Izzy Atkin takes a

bronze. Mathilde Gremaud and Sarah

0:42:540:43:01

Hoefflin make it a one, two in

silver and gold for Switzerland.

You

0:43:010:43:11

know you be first on speed to do

this.

Yes, amazing, it hasn't sunk

0:43:110:43:16

in, but I'm really proud and happy

to be part of Team GB.

A bit of a

0:43:160:43:23

perfectionist, and that's what she

did today, putting her tricks

0:43:230:43:27

together and as clean as possible,

and she claimed that last run.

We

0:43:270:43:33

have Izzy's parents and sister.

First, how are you feeling?

Very

0:43:330:43:37

happy. And a bit in shock, but very

happy.

We were not expecting a

0:43:370:43:47

medal, frankly, hoping it might be

possible, so we are extraordinarily

0:43:470:43:54

delighted.

How is it to have two

girls in the top ten and a medal in

0:43:540:44:01

ski slopestyle for the first time?

In lots of ways, it's something I

0:44:010:44:05

would have dreamt as the best case

scenario, but every time I thought

0:44:050:44:10

it was possible, I thought, no, keep

your eye on the ball.

How might you

0:44:100:44:13

celebrate?

Karaoke bars!

What will

be your song of choice?

It's usually

0:44:130:44:23

Katy Perry, some pop song.

Congratulations, Izzy.

0:44:230:44:28

That's all from us for now.

0:44:280:44:29

I'll be back at midnight with live

coverage of the Men's Slopestyle

0:44:290:44:32

final where we'll see

Britain's James Woods in action

0:44:320:44:34

in the Men's Ski Slopestyle.

0:44:340:44:35

Radzi Chinyanganya presents further action from Pyeongchang 2018, where the medals are won in the men's figure skating.
