Hello and welcome to day ten of the

Winter Olympic Games. They to in the

0:00:360:00:41

programme we will see the final

event of the ski jumping

0:00:410:00:45

competition, the men's team event

but, first, the short programme of

0:00:450:00:50

the ice dance and there is British

interest with Penny Coomes and Nick

0:00:500:00:54

Buckland. After an accident in

training 20 months ago, Penny was

0:00:540:00:58

told she might not walk again, let

alone and scared. David McDaid went

0:00:580:01:04

to see them in their training base

in Detroit's.

So hard to train for

0:01:040:01:10

an Olympics when you're healthy.

And to push your body to the

0:01:100:01:14

absolute limit every day.

0:01:140:01:20

absolute limit every day. There is

only so much nobody can deal with.

0:01:210:01:25

-- your body can deal with. A

second, my life changed.

Figure

0:01:250:01:32

skater Penny Coomes has suffered a

knee injury in training which could

0:01:320:01:36

enter hopes of competing at the

Winter Olympics.

Like that, I am on

0:01:360:01:45

the floor with half of my kneecap up

here and half of it down there. I

0:01:450:01:50

remember crying, not from the pain,

but from what could be. And, yeah, I

0:01:500:01:56

have had the hardest 1.5 of my life

and at the same time it is the

0:01:560:02:01

strongest I have had to be and it

has been a very rewarding time.

That

0:02:010:02:07

is a Korea ending injury for 99.9%

of people. Definitely. We just did

0:02:070:02:14

not know what the way forward was.

Once it had happened, we put

0:02:140:02:20

everything into perspective. It is

only ice-skating but it is something

0:02:200:02:23

we have grown up with an something

we adore so there was only one thing

0:02:230:02:27

we were going to do and that was

going to be we were going to come

0:02:270:02:32

back and pick up where we left off.

So many people were saying, that's

0:02:320:02:40

it, you're done, you can't come back

from this. I remember reading those

0:02:400:02:44

things and being so mad and I

channelled that energy. I remember

0:02:440:02:49

using that energy and being out

there and saying, this is for all

0:02:490:02:52

the people all who thought I

couldn't do this... Because I can.

0:02:520:02:59

# I've been thinking about tomorrow

# Instead of drowning in the past...

0:02:590:03:07

But every day was a good day and I

didn't do it on my own. When I was

0:03:070:03:10

down, I had my physio, my

psychologist and then of course

0:03:100:03:17

Nick. For me, I said to him at one

point, I don't know if I can do

0:03:170:03:21

this, I don't know if my knee is

ever going to be strong enough

0:03:210:03:24

again. And he just said, that's OK.

And I think I needed to hear that in

0:03:240:03:31

order to get better.

We are here in

Michigan, where you are based. Why

0:03:310:03:38

here?

It is an ice dance hub. There

are three big ice dance hubs and our

0:03:380:03:43

coach has one of the rest routines

in the world. We come here and we

0:03:430:03:49

train with a lot of our rivals, I

guess, which is really interesting

0:03:490:03:53

but we all get on very well so it is

very cool.

What does Pyeongchang

0:03:530:03:58

represent for you?

0:03:580:04:00

I'm sorry. It's just so emotional

because... This has always been my

0:04:060:04:14

goal. When we first set out, it was,

like, let us do three Olympic Games

0:04:140:04:21

and Pyeongchang was always... Let's

be the best here. And to kind of

0:04:210:04:25

have that... Taken away, I feel like

I have earned it. Tenfold, before I

0:04:250:04:34

even got there.

Going out there all

we have been through, it is going to

0:04:340:04:38

be a fitting end to this period of

our lives. The best bit is yet to

0:04:380:04:44

come.

Let's find out how they got on

with Kat Downes and Robin Cousins.

0:04:440:04:50

COMMENTATOR: Here they are, the

comeback kids. 20 months ago, Penny

0:04:500:04:57

shattered her kneecap into eight

pieces. She was reconstructed,

0:04:570:05:00

rehabilitated. A battle to defy the

odds to qualify for these Games for

0:05:000:05:08

the third time.

0:05:080:05:14

She was told she'd never skate

again. But Penny Coomes and Nick

0:08:040:08:09

Buckland are back on Olympic ice.

Here they are, and what will it mean

0:08:090:08:13

for them to be back?

Amazing. Their

first event of the season was the

0:08:130:08:21

qualifying event in Germany. They

qualified, they won that event, they

0:08:210:08:26

got Team GB the spot.

And that was

the last possible chance to qualify

0:08:260:08:30

for the Games, wasn't it? They

needed to come back and win it and

0:08:300:08:34

they did. They've done everything

asked of them. A season 's best of

0:08:340:08:44

71.79, but we have seen the scores

from the judges, a couple down from

0:08:440:08:50

what you'd expect, and Penny and

Nick leap to the top of the

0:08:500:08:54

leaderboard with that performance.

They have the qualification mark

0:08:540:08:58

against their name, and they are

through to tomorrow's free skating.

0:08:580:09:08

So, Maia Shibutani and Alex

Shibutani, they have team bronze in

0:09:160:09:20

the bag already. We are joined by

Nick Buckland in the commentary box.

0:09:200:09:25

These two... They are marmite,

aren't they, when it comes to ice

0:09:250:09:31

dance. You either love the fact they

are brother and sister and that

0:09:310:09:36

dynamic or you find it uncomfortable

to watch. What do you think?

It is a

0:09:360:09:42

difficult one, they've had to deal

with it all their Korealife, but

0:09:420:09:49

they have had a very good season,

and they are very clean these guys,

0:09:490:09:55

they are like machines.

0:09:550:09:58

A little bit of stumble. We will see

whether that plays a part in their

0:10:230:10:33

step sequence.

They won bronze at

the last world championships. Do you

0:10:330:10:37

think they will be pushing for a

podium place here?

I think so, there

0:10:370:10:43

are three strong American team so

there is a sort of a mini

0:10:430:10:47

competition within the Games itself,

within those teams, so they are

0:10:470:10:51

battling it out between themselves

as well.

0:10:510:10:58

These two are very clean and

everything goes very well to the

0:10:590:11:02

music will stop as we see here right

now.

0:11:020:11:05

Just struggling with speed here. The

last part of the programme looks

0:11:260:11:34

slow to me but super, super clean.

0:11:340:11:37

A lot of tempo changes within this

music as well, going up and down,

0:11:580:12:03

depending on what tempo they need

for the specific element they are

0:12:030:12:08

doing, which is interesting.

0:12:080:12:15

All the precision you would expect

from Shibutanis. They were neat as

0:12:180:12:25

pins, weren't they?

I think that was

a very strong performance. They did

0:12:250:12:31

what they needed to do and they have

a midline step sequence which is a

0:12:310:12:37

lovely format, which is a very

high-scoring aliment, and you can't

0:12:370:12:42

really expect much better from them.

So, our new leaders, Maia Shibutani

0:12:420:12:53

and Alex Shibutani. They have laid

down the marker for their

0:12:530:12:57

countrymen. So, it is time to say

thank you so much to Nick and thank

0:12:570:13:02

you for joining us and best of luck

tomorrow. For the first time, we

0:13:020:13:09

will see the best couples from the

last dance skate back to back. It

0:13:090:13:13

has been cat and mouse for the top

spot for these couples in the last

0:13:130:13:18

couple of seasons and time now to

find out who will come out on top

0:13:180:13:21

when it comes to the Olympics.

In

the short dance.

Over the next two

0:13:210:13:28

days, we will find out to comes out

on top because it'll be a battle

0:13:280:13:33

between these two, Tessa Virtue and

Scott Moir and the French couple,

0:13:330:13:37

who will skate immediately after

them, Gabriella Papadakis and

0:13:370:13:40

Guillaume Cizeron. Training

partners, rivals... All the King for

0:13:400:13:48

the Olympic gold. -- all looking for

the Olympic gold.

0:13:480:13:59

MUSIC: Sympathy for the Devil.

0:14:120:14:21

Beaufort control and it worked

through the middle of that sequence.

0:14:220:14:25

-- perfect control.

0:14:250:14:29

Into the rhumba.

0:14:420:14:47

Through the twizzles. The occasional

lift to finish.

0:16:160:16:26

CHEERING

And overall champions took that

0:16:260:16:33

Ludik title, it was only silver in

Sochi, they took a couple of years

0:16:330:16:37

away from competition, but they were

still training, still working and

0:16:370:16:42

came back last year to win the World

Championship.

Quite a stark contrast

0:16:420:16:49

between the Canadians and the French

team, but they

0:16:490:16:58

team, but they absolutely zhouz'd

the style. It has to be clean to put

0:17:000:17:04

work, but the timings throughout the

twizzles...

A season's best in the

0:17:040:17:14

short dance at the Olympic Games.

They are after that Gold Medal.

0:17:140:17:22

Record breaking. They have put

themselves in the best possible

0:17:230:17:27

position to claim that Olympic

title, to go with the gold that they

0:17:270:17:31

in 2010. Beat that, they say. And

when it comes that I stands, you are

0:17:310:17:41

either team Virtue and Moir, or team

Papadakis and Cizeron. It is time to

0:17:410:17:45

decide which of those you prefer,

because he Roddik four time European

0:17:450:17:50

champions who missed out on a place

in Sochi last time out, so this is

0:17:500:17:56

their first Olympics. Can they come

away with a medal?

0:17:560:18:02

MUSIC: Shape of You by Ed Sheeran.

0:19:030:19:05

MUSIC: Thinking Out Loud by Ed

Sheeran.

0:20:060:20:09

CHEERING

Some costly mistakes creeping in.

0:20:460:20:52

They will have lost ground on their

training may send rivals, Tessa

0:20:520:20:58

Virtue and Scott Moir.

They have

still been given a level four on the

0:20:580:21:05

twizzles, but the pattern, just

sequence level three. Slightly up on

0:21:050:21:12

the step into the second twizzle, so

he got ahead of Gabriela.

Yes,

0:21:120:21:22

second place for Gabriella Papadakis

and Guillaume Cizeron. So, the

0:21:220:21:29

French pair going second, into the

free dance tomorrow and we have

0:21:290:21:37

three other couples to skate after

them. Madison Hubbell and Zachary

0:21:370:21:42

Donahue beat the Shibutanis siblings

to the national champion chips this

0:21:420:21:46

year, skating at their first

Olympics. Coming out on top again

0:21:460:21:53

when it comes to that Team USA

rival.

They became national

0:21:530:21:58

champions overall after coming

second in the free dance.

0:21:580:22:08

The leg lines close to matching the

middle, one of the key points from

0:22:500:22:58

the leg and the point of view.

0:22:580:23:05

CHEERING

0:24:440:24:51

Some mistakes then, from Madison and

Zachary, as well.

They made the

0:24:510:24:57

correct turns

0:24:570:25:02

correct turns within the rhumba

sequence but one straight leg and

0:25:020:25:04

one bent leg within the middle of

the key point was a bit odd for me

0:25:040:25:07

to see.

It is a new season's best

for Madison Hubbell and Zachary

0:25:070:25:18

Donahue, 77.75 and they are up to

third place in the short dance

0:25:190:25:22

programme. This is the final couple

to state -- to skate today, Anna

0:25:220:25:28

Cappellini and Luca Lanotte, of

Italy, 2014 will champions, six

0:25:280:25:32

times Italian national champions and

they just missed out on a European

0:25:320:25:38

medal at the recent championships,

coming forth.

0:25:380:25:43

It's her birthday today.

0:25:540:26:05

Another couple for whom the Latin

flavour isn't necessarily very

0:26:130:26:16

natural.

0:26:160:26:21

CHEERING

It was clean and strong, the

0:28:510:28:55

birthday performance that Anna

Cappellini wanted.

Absolutely. Will

0:28:550:28:59

she get the birthday present that

she wants from the panel of judges?

0:28:590:29:03

Looking at the scoreboards, I am

seeing level falls -- fours, level

0:29:030:29:13

three for the pattern dance

sequence, the rhumba they got the

0:29:130:29:21

four, and the degree of execution

scores from the judges are good.

0:29:210:29:29

So, Italy could be in the mix.

Italy

will be in the mix. A couple of low

0:29:300:29:37

nines for their component scores.

Interpretation and timing are the

0:29:370:29:46

highest.

It is a new season's best

for Anna Cappellini and Luca

0:29:460:29:55

Lanotte. It is the birthday present

Anna was hoping for, putting them up

0:29:550:30:06

into fifth in this short programme

qualification. Great, great skate

0:30:060:30:13

for the Italians to wrap up today's

action. So, we are all set for an

0:30:130:30:20

exciting competition tomorrow.

Confirmation of the qualification

0:30:200:30:24

standings. Madison Hubbell and

captain Mike in the bronze position.

0:30:240:30:33

Gabriella Papadakis on a Guillaume

Cizeron just a couple of points

0:30:330:30:40

behind Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir,

who are chasing down a second

0:30:400:30:43

Olympic title. And looking to come

away from these Games with two more

0:30:430:30:48

Olympic title. And looking to come

away from these Games with two more

0:30:480:30:48

gold medals.

Your first taste of the Olympic ice,

0:30:480:30:54

talk us through your feelings first

of all.

You know, it was a tough

0:30:540:30:58

one, considering the issues that we

had. But it was still a great

0:30:580:31:06

experience. We still managed to keep

our focus. And enjoy the moment. It

0:31:060:31:12

could have been better, for sure,

but... What is done is done and we

0:31:120:31:20

will look forward now.

It is tight

right now between yourselves and

0:31:200:31:26

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, it is

quite a rivalry you've developed,

0:31:260:31:28

isn't it?

It is two years since they

came back. It was the thing going on

0:31:280:31:34

and we train together. So it is

something we take into consideration

0:31:340:31:40

but we came here and we want to do

our best, and that is what we are

0:31:400:31:45

going to focus on.

Tessa Virtue

Scott Moir, what a time to put that

0:31:450:31:52

performance down!

We knew we needed it, to be honest.

0:31:520:31:55

It is and extremely comfortable

skating first after the warm up. We

0:31:550:32:00

had to be strong. We were ready for

that and we are happy the way we

0:32:000:32:07

executed but there is a tonne of

work to be done tomorrow so we have

0:32:070:32:11

to make sure we come out and are

ready to go.

How important is every

0:32:110:32:17

single point given, that the French

couple are so strong as well?

The

0:32:170:32:20

field is so deep and we knew we'd

have to do a lot of work to get back

0:32:200:32:24

into the mix and so we are pleased

with our performance today and look

0:32:240:32:29

forward to executing our free dance

tomorrow. We believe in our plan

0:32:290:32:33

that our coaches set out at the

start of the season and so far we

0:32:330:32:36

are on track.

How happy are you with

how it went it?

Very happy. It is

0:32:360:32:43

something we had been striving for

for a long time so to get out there

0:32:430:32:46

and put out a good performance, we

have one more, but this performance

0:32:460:32:52

was really great.

Penny, everyone

knows your journey with your knee.

0:32:520:32:55

What was it back to be -- what was

it like being back on the big stage?

0:32:550:33:02

I had competition pressure but I

feel excited to get back out there

0:33:020:33:06

again and I am so happy to be here.

I was skating around when they were

0:33:060:33:12

reading out the schools and I smiled

to myself because after everything

0:33:120:33:16

I've been through, I may it and that

is the most important thing.

What

0:33:160:33:20

can we expect from the free dance?

You enjoy yourself out there and

0:33:200:33:24

you've put in a lot of work, what

are we going to see?

Our free dance

0:33:240:33:28

is set to

0:33:280:33:33

is set to music by Muse, it is

atmospheric, we love that piece of

0:33:330:33:37

music and we've come back to its

because we wanted to perform it for

0:33:370:33:42

a last time at the Olympic Games.

There are some cool elements in

0:33:420:33:46

there and I cannot wait to perform

at.

We can't wait to see you perform

0:33:460:33:50

it. Well done today and we can't

wait to see you tomorrow.

A new

0:33:500:33:55

world record short dance from Tessa

Virtue and Scott Moir, they are

0:33:550:34:00

going after that Olympic title,

aren't they?

They were supreme in

0:34:000:34:04

the team event and I thought this

was better today. We saw that with

0:34:040:34:09

the score, they came out confident,

signal and they are the ones to beat

0:34:090:34:13

now.

This ice dance competition was

built as a head-to-head between them

0:34:130:34:18

and their training mate Gabriella

Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, but

0:34:180:34:20

there is a bit of reading room for

the Canadians because a few mistakes

0:34:200:34:27

creeping in for the French.

A pew

minor mistakes but those minor

0:34:270:34:29

mistakes will be the difference

between gold and forth. The French

0:34:290:34:36

didn't have the skate they wanted

today. A few issues with the skate

0:34:360:34:41

and costumes, but don't count them

out because the free dance is

0:34:410:34:44

fantastic and they will come out

tomorrow gunning for the gold.

They

0:34:440:34:51

have less experience, though. This

is their first Olympics. Tessa

0:34:510:34:56

Virtue and Scott Moir won a title in

2010 so they know what it is like to

0:34:560:35:01

clinch the gold.

They've been

through two Olympics. Gold

0:35:010:35:05

medallists in Frank over 2010,

silver medallists in Sochi and they

0:35:050:35:09

are coming back here. They've been

away from competition but learning

0:35:090:35:16

their craft, learning how to

perform, not worrying about how to

0:35:160:35:21

hit a level for this and a step for

that. They are bringing their

0:35:210:35:25

performance back with incredible

technique. The French have two world

0:35:250:35:31

titles under their belts. They know

how to compete and they know how

0:35:310:35:34

they want to perform. People say it

is chalk and cheese, who do you

0:35:340:35:39

prefer. The Canadians perform for

the audience. They say they want to

0:35:390:35:44

have that feeling between the man

and woman skating. The French say we

0:35:440:35:47

don't go in for that. We want to be

an entity and create beauty and have

0:35:470:35:54

our performances speak for

themselves. It is a lot more

0:35:540:35:58

contemporary and extraneous, in some

aspects. It is ready going to come

0:35:580:36:01

down to what do those judges think?

And what the technical scores are.

0:36:010:36:07

Only perfection will do, I'm sure

because the margins are so narrow.

0:36:070:36:12

Nick and Penny qualifying in the top

ten. Well done, Robin! You survived

0:36:120:36:18

their comeback. You have been so

personally involved.

Until she

0:36:180:36:24

stepped on that ice today, all the

preparation, do whatever you want,

0:36:240:36:28

there was a bit of nervous tension,

to be expected, and it wasn't the

0:36:280:36:33

performance they wanted to give but

they got credit where they needed

0:36:330:36:37

it, they delivered that fantastic

performance, and they are so happy

0:36:370:36:41

that I think the pressure will be

off them slightly for that free

0:36:410:36:45

dance and they've got, in the draw,

for the top two groups so they are

0:36:450:36:49

where they wanted to be.

They are

pleased with their performance. We

0:36:490:36:53

were chuffed to see them on the ice,

Penny and Nick looking to push up

0:36:530:36:58

the leaderboard. Tessa Virtue and

Scott Moir, the world champions, the

0:36:580:37:04

ones to read.

The ski jumping has provided real

0:37:040:37:07

drama so far and tonight it is the

final event. The men's team large

0:37:070:37:12

hill. Norway are the favourites here

but this is their last chance to

0:37:120:37:16

take home a gold medal. Germany are

the defending champions and have

0:37:160:37:21

Andreas Wellinger on their team. He

has won a gold already and silver at

0:37:210:37:25

these Games. Ollie Williams is your

commentator.

0:37:250:37:28

COMMENTATOR: This is the start list

for the eight teams that have made

0:37:280:37:33

it through.

0:37:330:37:34

We said goodbye to four teams and we

go in reverse order of scores in the

0:37:380:37:43

first round so Finland go first and

Norway, in the lead, go last, and

0:37:430:37:50

all of those scores still count.

Oscar, it looks like to me they are

0:37:500:37:58

too far back,

0:37:580:38:05

too far back, Stefan Kraft, a great

first-round jump, he needs a miracle

0:38:050:38:07

second-round jump. And that is not

it is. I think that is thank you and

0:38:070:38:14

good night Austria. That is

disappointing for Stefan Kraft. He

0:38:140:38:22

had 133.5 in first round. It is in

the distance, it is the combination

0:38:220:38:28

of distance, style and wind, but if

your distance is lacking, frankly,

0:38:280:38:32

it doesn't matter how good your

style is, you won't be up at the

0:38:320:38:36

top. Sinking of the head from his

Austrian team-mates. Because they

0:38:360:38:46

know with 116 points seven, and that

total of 610, that is already surely

0:38:460:38:54

too much for Austria to come back

from. Poland, though, they have a

0:38:540:39:00

shot at any colour medal right now,

great first-round for them, only

0:39:000:39:04

five points off the lead, here goes

Maciej Kot.

0:39:040:39:07

The world champions in the team

sport, good jump. Maybe a little

0:39:120:39:19

short, a little bit of concern on

the coach's phase. He isn't the

0:39:190:39:26

standout Polish jumper, he is

essentially your squad player, you

0:39:260:39:30

are looking for something solid

enough out of him. Boom into the

0:39:300:39:38

ground, slamming in with the left

ski, held in nicely. Polish team

0:39:380:39:42

wearing the Number Ten bids. That

keeps us in the hunt. 18.5s from the

0:39:420:39:52

judges.

0:39:520:39:57

judges. Lock the team total in your

head and see what that compares to

0:39:580:40:02

from what it Karl Geiger can do for

Germany. Breathe in, breathe out,

0:40:020:40:10

throw yourself down the 110 metre

jump and launch.

0:40:100:40:20

It's good, is it good enough? German

fans giving him a huge amount of

0:40:200:40:28

support. Hundred 34 metres. He is

happy but he isn't overjoyed. I

0:40:280:40:36

think Karl Geiger wanted that to be

a couple more metres. It is coming

0:40:360:40:45

down to a metre or two, this final,

I am sure of it. That keeps Germany

0:40:450:40:54

in the hunt but look at his face!

Oh, I wanted more. I wanted a few

0:40:540:41:00

metres more. 134 metres, two metres

less than his last jump.

0:41:000:41:09

less than his last jump. That means

that Germany for now are ahead up do

0:41:090:41:13

is make of Poland. And here comes

Daniel Andre Tande for Norway. They

0:41:130:41:21

led Germany by two points after

round one. That is a big jump!

0:41:210:41:27

Exactly how Norway wanted to start!

He lifts a finger into the air and

0:41:270:41:34

says, yeah! Oh, the relief, that is

his last jump of the Olympics. It

0:41:340:41:42

means that much more when you're

doing it in a team competition

0:41:420:41:46

because, well estate, and you are

letting down three other people and

0:41:460:41:49

a country. Oh, what a beautiful jump

from Daniel Andre Tande! Like

0:41:490:41:57

surfing at the end, he says. Take a

look at that.

0:41:570:42:01

These celebration, like it is a gold

medal, because it could well be.

0:42:090:42:14

Germany gave him a 20, discarded as

the high school, still Minety in .5s

0:42:140:42:21

and Norway go into a healthy 16

point lead thanks to Daniel Andre

0:42:210:42:26

Tande. Here are the standings.

Poland about eight points further

0:42:260:42:31

back from Germany in third. One

mistake, though, will change all of

0:42:310:42:38

this in an instant. It is gripping

stuff. Three jumps each to go.

0:42:380:42:46

Starting for Manuel Fettner. It

feels like a battle between Austria

0:42:470:42:49

and Slovenia the fourth. -- for

fourth.

0:42:490:42:58

fourth. It is an OK jump. Pretty

much what we just saw from Slovenia,

0:42:590:43:03

maybe a couple of metres further

from Manuel Fettner.

0:43:030:43:07

See where this leaves Austria. They

will be so sad at home in the Alps

0:43:120:43:18

right now that their team is only

battling for fourth place at the

0:43:180:43:23

Olympics. That isn't what Austria

feels it should be about. They were

0:43:230:43:28

silver medallists behind Germany in

Sochi. They are ahead of Slovenia

0:43:280:43:32

for now, but only by three points.

Silver in Sochi, bronze at the world

0:43:320:43:40

Championships last year but they

haven't been able to compete at

0:43:400:43:44

quite the high standard this time

around. Poland on the other hand of

0:43:440:43:48

the world champions and are carrying

that form into this. Here's Stefan

0:43:480:43:51

Hula.

0:43:510:43:53

Solid jump from Stefan Hula! Well

over the 125 metre K-point. He

0:44:020:44:10

reacts immediately. That keeps

Poland in contention. You heard

0:44:100:44:18

almost a springboard sound of him

leaping into the air like a white

0:44:180:44:25

jet engine, soaring down the hill.

Look how quickly he lands this and,

0:44:250:44:31

then, immediately he knows it is

good. You could see that green line.

0:44:310:44:36

He knows what he is trying to eat.

-- to eat.

0:44:360:44:47

In the first round, Stephan Leyhe

had 121 points.

Here is round two.

0:44:570:45:08

Now...

0:45:080:45:15

Now... 121 metres, was that a little

short of what he thinks he needs?

0:45:150:45:20

When I say that mistakes could

change everything,

0:45:200:45:26

change everything, I'm not talking

about the kind of mistake that means

0:45:260:45:30

you fall, but if you lose three or

four meters, that could be enough,

0:45:300:45:34

five points in it between three

teams at the start of this round, it

0:45:340:45:38

is just nothing. There is Richard

Freitag of the German team. I don't

0:45:380:45:42

know. He doesn't know.

And Poland go

ahead of Germany with two jumps to

0:45:420:45:50

go! Wow. The last of this group is

Andrea Stern in Fort Norway, he

0:45:500:46:01

needs to keep his composure and keep

them ahead. Will you do it?

0:46:010:46:08

them ahead. Will you do it? --

Andreas Stjernen.

Big jump, good

0:46:090:46:14

jump. That looks like it'll be

enough for Andreas Stjernen. Mr Rea

0:46:140:46:20

liability. Hasn't been anywhere near

the medals, unlike most Norwegian

0:46:200:46:25

team members here. They've had such

a good Olympics on the ski jump, but

0:46:250:46:29

top 15s in both events. It is

consistency across your four team

0:46:290:46:40

members, because you cannot get rid

of any scores, you cannot just count

0:46:400:46:45

three, you need or four and that is

where someone like Andreas Stjernen

0:46:450:46:49

comes in and that's why he gets that

kind of reaction.

They will be

0:46:490:46:56

buzzing in no way right now. Here is

the score, still in first. It is a

0:46:560:47:04

30 point gap with two to go. That

leaves it all to do. Poland and

0:47:040:47:12

Germany are slipping. If Norway can

stay just about faultless with these

0:47:120:47:17

last two jumps they will have their

first ever team gold medal. Austria

0:47:170:47:22

just ahead of Slovenia for fourth,

Japan out on their own in six.

0:47:220:47:29

Gregor Schlierenzauer now.

0:47:290:47:38

Gregor Schlierenzauer now.

Slovenia

on 8:36.7 and Austria now in this

0:47:390:47:40

little mini battle for fourth place.

Into the air, two bronze medals at

0:47:400:47:51

Vancouver 2010, great pedigree,

Arfon, not so good right now. And

0:47:510:47:55

again, I think he wanted more from

that jump.

0:47:550:48:02

that jump. Just about the same

distance, and there is his

0:48:020:48:13

reference. Will this be above or

below 111 points? It will be almost

0:48:130:48:20

bang on, 111.3. That will be enough

to keep Austria about three points

0:48:200:48:24

ahead of Slovenia. Into the medal

contenders, and Dawid Kubacki, I

0:48:240:48:33

mentioned that he had been on and

off. As a superb first round jump.

0:48:330:48:37

He needs now consistency more than

ever.

0:48:370:48:44

ever. It is OK. It's not quite as

far as his monster 138.5 first round

0:48:440:48:53

jump but it is close enough to keep

Poland in the hunt, maybe, for a

0:48:530:48:59

silver against Germany. Could they

even get past Norway for the gold?

0:48:590:49:05

We will need to see mistakes from

Norway for to happen. Dawid Kubacki,

0:49:050:49:14

through the air, hold it, at the

last moment, change those legs,

0:49:150:49:21

absorb the landing on your front leg

and shift the weight to your back

0:49:210:49:26

leg, you are happy if you do that.

Dawid Kubacki, 135.3. Poland go

0:49:260:49:36

first with 938. And that puts

pressure on Richard Freitag.

0:49:360:49:49

Relatively long jump. He is holding

in his reaction. He looks back up at

0:49:530:50:04

the Hill. A little talking to

himself, because that is a good

0:50:040:50:11

jump, but it is so, so close. We saw

Kubacki putting down 135.5, so it

0:50:110:50:17

comes down to judging and those few

win compensation points, barely any

0:50:170:50:25

wind out there tonight. The German

fans willing on Richard Freitag. At

0:50:250:50:32

the top of the hill, the Olympic

champion looking on, will he have

0:50:320:50:40

that Freitag feeling? Second-place!

And Poland have a 0.6 lead, going

0:50:400:50:51

into the last. It is now Johann

Andre Forfang, needs to be solid and

0:50:510:50:55

long, but he has a bit of a cushion.

A silver medallist on the normal

0:50:550:51:03

hail, it is a good jump. Again, the

distance wasn't quite up there with

0:51:030:51:10

what we have seen, 132 metres, so

Norway might lose a little ground on

0:51:100:51:15

Poland and Germany or lose a little

of that advantage that they have

0:51:150:51:19

built up. They had about a 30 point

gap. Let's see if those few extra

0:51:190:51:26

metres will make the difference. The

judges are looking at this, as well.

0:51:260:51:31

It is a good looking jump, stock

still, moving into that Telemark,

0:51:310:51:38

almost offering up a little prayer.

As Robert Johannson dawns the

0:51:380:51:44

helmet, he's going to be the last

man down for Norway. They stay in

0:51:440:51:51

first place, 960.9 points, they

preserve that advantage. The judges

0:51:510:52:01

were happy, and you will see, now,

actually that that gap has closed,

0:52:010:52:04

so more than -- more like 20 points

separating Norway and Poland with

0:52:040:52:12

Germany a fraction behind. 20 points

going into the last jump is still a

0:52:120:52:17

lot to play with, but it means that

Robert Johannson has to get it

0:52:170:52:20

right.

0:52:200:52:28

right. Already stressful enough for

Austria to be fighting for four.

0:52:280:52:31

They don't want to finish fifth.

0:52:310:52:42

Long run, and that should be enough

to send Austria into fourth place

0:52:430:52:52

overall and into provisional third

above Slovenia. He finished really

0:52:520:52:57

strongly as well. He had sixth place

in the end. Looks like he has

0:52:570:53:02

delivered when it mattered, Michael

label. Austria don't have the

0:53:020:53:08

strength to be competing for medals

but that is at least a promising way

0:53:080:53:14

to end their ski jump Olympics.

138.5. Austria moving 11 points

0:53:140:53:24

ahead of Slovenia. And it looks like

they will settle for fourth, which

0:53:240:53:30

means we have three jumpers to go,

and three medals to decide. Nothing

0:53:300:53:38

those guys can do, it is down to

these. Andreas Wellinger, for

0:53:380:53:41

Germany.

0:53:410:53:46

Germany. He has an Olympic gold and

silver already, is going to get

0:53:480:53:52

another medal, what colour is it

going to be? It is quite long. Looks

0:53:520:53:58

like he wanted a little bit more.

134.5. It opens the door are

0:53:580:54:05

fraction for Poland.

0:54:050:54:15

fraction for Poland. Andreas

Wellinger, only 22, but he's still

0:54:150:54:18

the only returning member of the

German squad that won the team gold

0:54:180:54:22

in Sochi. Norway look right now like

they are going to take that away

0:54:220:54:28

from Germany, this time around, but

what a talent this man is, gold and

0:54:280:54:32

silver. His team-mates have been

standing there applauding all week

0:54:320:54:36

long. Here is Germany's final score,

1075.7. And we will see whether the

0:54:360:54:46

man who won gold on Saturday, Kamil

Stoch, can throw Poland about that.

0:54:460:54:56

1070 5.7, to beat. Kamil Stoch,

three times an Olympic champion. He

0:54:560:55:04

won the gold on Saturday. They

smuggled crates of beer into the

0:55:040:55:08

Olympic Village afterwards. Poland

happy to be celebrating. Will they

0:55:080:55:13

celebrate again?

0:55:130:55:18

celebrate again? 134.5. It matches

Andreas Wellinger. We will go to the

0:55:190:55:22

judges.

0:55:220:55:28

judges. Well, we had such a

nail-biting finish between them in

0:55:280:55:35

the last Olympic final. You can see

him trying to choose nails off

0:55:350:55:41

through his gloves when he was

waiting for that final score to come

0:55:410:55:44

up and in the end he won by a narrow

margin, and Andreas Wellinger settle

0:55:440:55:49

for silver. Now they are battling

for medals BR for their countries.

0:55:490:55:53

And look at this jump from Kamil

Stoch. Glides into the landing. He

0:55:530:55:59

cushions that so nicely. And all

they can do now is wait for this

0:55:590:56:05

score. Look at those bases, gripped

on the screen, they are going to see

0:56:050:56:13

it when you see it, they are second.

1072.4. They will take at least a

0:56:130:56:20

bronze medal, but Germany stay ahead

of them. Will it be silver or gold?

0:56:200:56:27

Robert Johannson of Norway has about

a 20 point cushion to play with and,

0:56:270:56:35

for him and for Norway, gold is just

a whisker away.

0:56:350:56:43

a whisker away. Here he goes, for

gold.

0:56:430:56:51

It's long, it's clean, it's surely

enough for gold for Norway! Gold for

0:56:570:57:03

Robert Johannson, gold for the team.

They are celebrating already. He has

0:57:030:57:10

been imperious for all the Olympics.

Two bronze medals, now they are

0:57:100:57:16

going to be champions in the team

event for the first time in their

0:57:160:57:20

history, which is mad, it's crazy,

the Norwegians invented this, they

0:57:200:57:25

have one 30 medals at the Olympics

and they've never won the team

0:57:250:57:28

event. And the man who has captured

so much attention around the world

0:57:280:57:34

is the man who gets to glide home to

gold on behalf of a whole nation.

0:57:340:57:41

It's not official yet, but it was

good, it was long, it was clean, it

0:57:410:57:47

had everything it needed to win a

gold medal and it's just a matter of

0:57:470:57:52

the score coming up in front of our

faces any second now.

0:57:520:58:07

faces any second now. There is, it's

gold! 1090.5. There will be no close

0:58:070:58:14

shave in this Olympic team final.

Robert Johannson delivers a gold for

0:58:140:58:20

Norway. They will stand on top of

that team podium for the first time.

0:58:200:58:27

Those whiskers are golden, and

Norway are your team ski jump

0:58:270:58:32

Olympic champions.

0:58:320:58:32

Norway are your team ski jump

Olympic champions. Credit to Andreas

0:58:320:58:37

Wellinger and the German team. Here,

the final results.

0:58:370:58:45

That is all from is now. I'll be

back at five past midnight on BBC

0:58:450:58:49

One, with the conclusion of the ice

dance competition. Then, extended
