Hello and welcome to Day 13

of the Winter Olympics

0:00:340:00:37

here in Pyeongchang.

0:00:370:00:44

We want to see the big tricks we

know these guys can do.

0:00:440:00:52

know these guys can do.

Team USA

versus team Canada.

0:00:540:00:57

Later in the programme

0:01:020:01:04

we'll see extended highlights

0:01:040:01:06

of what is shaping up to be

an incredible men's

0:01:060:01:08

ski halfpipe final.

0:01:080:01:10

But first we'll see the gold medal

match of the women's ice hockey.

0:01:100:01:15

It's a repeat of the 2014 Olympic

final with the USA taking on Canada

0:01:150:01:23

- and that was an classic,

with the Canadians finally winning

0:01:230:01:25

3-2 in overtime to make it

four golds in a row.

0:01:250:01:31

Hilary Knight played in that game

four years ago for America.

0:01:310:01:34

Let's hear from her.

0:01:340:01:41

COMMENTATOR: A superstar, Hilary

Knight. I suspect she may be up

0:01:410:01:45

there with the players of the

tournament.

Four years on, what are

0:01:450:01:51

the memories of Sochi?

It was a

heartbreaking defeat in the way we

0:01:510:01:55

lost.

0:01:550:02:00

lost.

COMMENTATOR: Now we will have

a grand slam finish!

0:02:030:02:10

a grand slam finish!

In the third

period, how we let it slip through

0:02:120:02:14

our fingers. It is hard because the

Olympics are so much bigger than the

0:02:140:02:21

team, it is our country, those

people who helped us get to that

0:02:210:02:24

place. The young girls coming up who

want to be like us. In many ways,

0:02:240:02:30

the pressure and the weight of the

world on our shoulders being number

0:02:300:02:34

one seed but also we feel like the

underdog in this fight, and that is

0:02:340:02:39

exciting.

Can Canada make it five in a row?

0:02:390:02:43

Your commentators for this one

are Seth Bennet and Kent Simpson.

Your commentators for this one

0:02:450:02:51

Women's hockey two superpowers once

again in an Olympics final, a

0:02:510:02:55

rematch of four years ago, and of

eight years ago. Canada walked away

0:02:550:03:01

with victories on both occasions. It

has been four

0:03:010:03:09

has been four years of hurt for the

Americans. Can they turn the tide of

0:03:100:03:15

history here? Good skating from the

Canadians. The whistle-blower below.

0:03:150:03:23

Blayre Turnbull with good speed.

Blayre Turnbull coming off the

0:03:230:03:27

bench. The puck came around and she

kept going. A nice job from Maddie

0:03:270:03:37

Rooney to keep tight to the post.

And then jump on the rebound with

0:03:370:03:42

Wakefield lurking.

Jocelyne Larocque

feeds it in. Goes after it. The feed

0:03:420:03:50

towards Poulin. Canada is spreading

the puck around well and that was a

0:03:500:03:57

chance for Meghan Agosta. Agosta?

denied by Maddie Rooney. Maybe a

0:03:570:04:05

little bit too tight.

The high tip

from Daoust. The slap passed right

0:04:050:04:13

onto the stick did not quite make it

through. A good job from Lee

0:04:130:04:18

Stecklein.

Canada just staying

onside. The US trying to clear away.

0:04:180:04:27

A huge hit. Penalty coming. Hannah

Brandt comes in and makes her own

0:04:270:04:34

body check after the play.

This is

Jennifer Wakefield.

0:04:340:04:44

This is... There is no doubt about

it, it is a body check and the women

0:04:440:04:49

know you cannot body check in this

game. It lets you know the intensity

0:04:490:04:54

is so high.

A quiet tournament for Amanda Kessel

0:04:540:05:02

as the shot comes in. Into the

grateful glove of Shannon Szabados.

0:05:020:05:08

She hangs onto it.

0:05:080:05:14

She hangs onto it.

It was a big

shot. The Canadian defenders make a

0:05:140:05:19

good job of ensuring a clear lane

for Szabados. I do not like the way

0:05:190:05:25

Canada is managing the puck. They

have had the Americans running

0:05:250:05:29

around in their own zone and they

have made bad passes. Putting the

0:05:290:05:36

puck into not great situations and

the Americans have been able to

0:05:360:05:39

break out the puck from there. The

Canadians have to be smarter. It

0:05:390:05:44

looks like they will get their first

chance on the power play.

Hannah

0:05:440:05:50

Brandt, no, it is Nurse. A wry smile

from the coach.

0:05:500:06:03

Fairly legitimate. Tough to argue

that. That was behind the play. This

0:06:040:06:11

is the third indiscipline penalty

Canada has taken.

0:06:110:06:16

Bellamy, as the US built into the

zone. What a time it would be to

0:06:160:06:23

score. Under a minute remaining in

the first period. Tipped out in

0:06:230:06:27

front. Going hard to the net. The

Americans had a chance. They will be

0:06:270:06:39

looking for more. Hilary Knight

schools! -- scores. It is first

0:06:390:06:53

blood to the USA in this Olympic

final. So often it has been a silver

0:06:530:07:01

medal for the US, but is that a

golden touch from Hilary Knight?

0:07:010:07:07

You got the sense this would happen.

Look at the time and space that she

0:07:070:07:16

has. She recognises where Hilary

Knight is. Beautiful plate onto the

0:07:160:07:22

backhand of Hilary Knight. Shannon

Szabados was wondering whether

0:07:220:07:28

Hilary Knight was in the blue paint.

She was not, she was right on top of

0:07:280:07:33

it.

Amanda Kessel.

That was a good

0:07:330:07:43

opportunity. Very nearly stuck away.

Wriggling free again is Amanda

0:07:430:07:51

Kessel. Hannah Brandt behind the

net. USA in too much space from a

0:07:510:08:01

Canadian perspective and Szabados

was forced to make the save. Now

0:08:010:08:05

maybe Canada can win this race.

Johnston getting wrapped up with

0:08:050:08:16

Cayla Barnes. USA coming back the

other way. Dani Camoranesi took it

0:08:160:08:22

wide. Given away. If the Canadians

can use this well, they have done

0:08:220:08:31

terrifically well.

It is there! A little tip right in

0:08:310:08:37

front and Canada are right back in

this as they level things up. It was

0:08:370:08:42

a nothing played, really, as they

went to the net. Just enough of a

0:08:420:08:47

stick on it. To put it home. Haley

Irwin. What a play by Turnbull.

What

0:08:470:09:01

a play from Turnbull. Haley Irwin

going to the net. She picks it out

0:09:010:09:08

of the air. About two and a half

feet and she reaches out before the

0:09:080:09:13

puck gets to Maddie Rooney and

deflects it past her on the short

0:09:130:09:17

side. You said something out of

nothing. One think the Americans do

0:09:170:09:22

well, they do not give the puck

weight. When it is on a stick, they

0:09:220:09:27

know where to put it. Canada,

sometimes they are just happy to get

0:09:270:09:33

it off their sticks and that was a

case in point.

0:09:330:09:37

Back to Poulin! 2-1. Another Olympic

final goal for Poulin. USA published

0:09:370:09:50

here. That combination of Meghan

Agosta and Marie-Philip Poulin sent

0:09:500:10:01

Canada back on track for a gold

medal.

No sooner are we praising the

0:10:010:10:07

Americans for their

0:10:070:10:12

Americans for their puck management.

A one-time shot, short side.

0:10:130:10:22

A one-time shot, short side. A

terrific shot. I love the pass from

0:10:220:10:25

Meghan Agosta, right through the

legs of Amanda Kessel.

0:10:250:10:29

Hilary Knight in the right wing

corner, quick shot to the net. She

0:10:290:10:34

has it again and lets it go through

traffic. Szabados, quick hand, quick

0:10:340:10:42

kick, safe.

A nice pushback from the

Americans. The Canadians were in

0:10:420:10:50

between line changes. It was not

their full unit out there. This was

0:10:500:10:59

an own deflection and what a save.

Deflects it on her own net.

0:10:590:11:08

That has to be a penalty. Canada

still have it. Penalty coming.

0:11:080:11:21

still have it. Penalty coming. Off

the outside of the net.

Looks like

0:11:210:11:27

the USA jump map. They definitely

did. I wonder why the whistle did

0:11:270:11:31

not go.

0:11:310:11:36

not go.

Massively out of position

and another chance off the knees.

0:11:360:11:41

Finally the Americans touch, the

whistle blows. First power play for

0:11:410:11:45

Canada.

Great job from Saulnier. Got

moved down to the fourth line. She

0:11:450:11:55

has terrific speed. She chips it

past and Sidney Morin steps casually

0:11:550:12:02

in front of her. And a hard shot of

the stick of Johnston, turned aside

0:12:020:12:08

by Maddie Rooney. Canada goes to the

power play for the first time this

0:12:080:12:12

evening.

Nice pass to force it up. Daoust

0:12:120:12:19

working get to the near side and the

stick goes flying into the air.

0:12:190:12:28

Punched away by Dani Camoranesi. The

only thing she can do as it goes

0:12:280:12:33

down low will stop Haley Irwin

pleads innocence but I think she is

0:12:330:12:37

over the line.

You cannot go into

the blue paint if you are a skater

0:12:370:12:45

unless the puck is in there. You can

see her having explained by the

0:12:450:12:51

referee. Rebecca Johnston tries to

throw it in. You can see the right

0:12:510:12:56

skate standing in the blue paint.

Not allowing Maddie Rooney to come

0:12:560:12:59

out. Canada scrambling at the start

of the power play. Did a good job,

0:12:590:13:07

separating and trying to move the

puck around.

They will have to build

0:13:070:13:12

from distance here, as they bring it

down. What an opportunity that was

0:13:120:13:16

a! Would not sit down for Sarah

Nurse.

0:13:160:13:26

Nurse. Nurse latching on and could

not find Jenner? who is out in front

0:13:280:13:32

and all alone. Agosta?. Towards

goal. Could they finish it off? It

0:13:320:13:41

was wide by Nurse.

0:13:410:13:47

Canada get it back to the blue line.

Through traffic and it bounces out.

0:13:470:13:53

The Americans go here and they will

with Amanda Kessel.

What an

0:13:530:13:58

opportunity for Canada. Terrific

job. Started with the point shot

0:13:580:14:10

from Brigette Lacquette. It came

right to Jenner?. Wakefield and

0:14:100:14:17

Nurse were there.

The Americans come

to the games as favourites. Yet come

0:14:170:14:26

that big moment, the Canadians seem

to find an extra gear.

0:14:260:14:33

to find an extra gear. Daoust, she

cannot finish it. What a chance and

0:14:330:14:37

it now goes the other way. Hilary

Knight. Great defensive play. Oh, my

0:14:370:14:46

word, there is a player injured on

the ice. Brianna Decker took the

0:14:460:14:51

full force of the stick. It was

wonderful play at one end. Daoust

0:14:510:15:00

with the chance and then it comes

back the other way. Two on one and

0:15:000:15:05

Hilary Knight made a lovely pass.

How Brianna Decker was not able to

0:15:050:15:12

finish it...

0:15:120:15:18

What a remarkable sequence, back and

forth, huge save from Maddie Rooney

0:15:180:15:25

at one end of Daoust, and then two

on one the other way. A beautiful

0:15:250:15:29

backhand pass right out of the tape,

and then Poulin went right through

0:15:290:15:36

Decker. What a stick from shadows.

In the men's game, that's a hit to

0:15:360:15:41

the head.

That should be a penalty,

no doubt about it. Sounds like the

0:15:410:15:47

crowds seen the replay, Poulin going

full speed, and that is elbowed

0:15:470:15:55

head.

Can Canada withstand the

pressure and get an insular and

0:15:550:15:59

smart car? Right can they clear the

zone? They can. Two on one. It saved

0:15:590:16:04

by Rooney. Is that a gold-medal

saving save? At the other end, what

0:16:040:16:11

a chance! Areas Lamoureux! -- here

is Lamoureux! 2-2. Rooney makes a

0:16:110:16:23

stop at one end. The US breakaway.

Who else do you want it on the end

0:16:230:16:27

of the stick of? Monique

Lamoureux-Morando. Bolts of Sochi

0:16:270:16:33

vanished, thoughts of 1998 back in

focus. -- thoughts of Sochi.

What is

0:16:330:16:41

saved from Rooney, who gets about

half of this puck, and look at

0:16:410:16:48

Lamoureux, head up, so confident,

firing that puck under the blog of

0:16:480:16:51

shadows. -- the glove of shadows.

Amazing game.

Is there one more

0:16:510:17:01

twist? Canada maybe have one last

chance, but not now. They have run

0:17:010:17:09

out of time on this one. And, for

the second successive Winter

0:17:090:17:14

Olympics, we are going to overtime

in the women's ice hockey final.

0:17:140:17:24

Next goal wins it. Good move,

Keller, it goes wide. And now it

0:17:240:17:35

goes back the other way, Megan

Agosta, Poulin with her, deflecting

0:17:350:17:40

off the stick and up into the

netting. It is golden goal,

0:17:400:17:47

literally.

The next goal wins. Look

at this chance from Brianne Jenner,

0:17:470:17:56

she walks in, just loses her handle

on it at the last second, and look

0:17:560:18:00

at this shot off the stick.

Canada

don't really have that dynamic

0:18:000:18:08

defender who can lead it. It opens

up, and Keller nearly wins it.

What

0:18:080:18:13

a save from Szabados. What a play

from Gigi Marvin to spring the

0:18:130:18:19

defender, Keller. She tries to go

hide blocker, and what a save from

0:18:190:18:25

Shannon Szabados.

Fortino is

absolutely shattered. Penalty.

0:18:250:18:37

Keller looks up to the skies. 1.35

to go. And Canada are going to have

0:18:370:18:45

a four on three power play.

If a

penalty, it is.

0:18:450:18:54

penalty, it is.

On the blue line,

there is Fortino. Fortino kicks it

0:18:570:19:03

towards the middle, rebound, often

posed, I think. Canada -- off the

0:19:030:19:11

post. Canada nearly when it. USA,

only three skaters on the ice.

0:19:110:19:19

Opened up from Rebecca Johnston.

Neutralised. Surely the Canadians

0:19:190:19:29

are going to find a way to get

Poulin back out there.

All the way

0:19:290:19:33

down to 15 seconds.

Penalty shot.

The pass too hard for Larocque.

0:19:330:19:43

Cleared away, eight seconds. No

icing here. What a drama, and it

0:19:430:19:49

will continue. 80 minutes can't

split these two teams in an Olympic

0:19:490:19:55

gold medal match, and now it's over

to issue out. -- to a shoot out.

0:19:550:20:06

Natalie Spooner, first shooter for

Canada, looking to set the tone

0:20:060:20:12

early, get a goal and put the US on

the back burner.

With British links,

0:20:120:20:19

from Swindon outside Manchester, her

family. An easy one for Rooney first

0:20:190:20:21

up.

She came in with a tonne of

speed but just lost control. Not

0:20:210:20:30

sure what she was trying to

accomplish. She lost control under

0:20:300:20:34

her stick, and easy for the American

netminder.

These teams have

0:20:340:20:38

practised this is an awful lot. In

the build-up to this. Because they

0:20:380:20:43

know how important it could be. Here

is the experienced Gigi Marvin. She

0:20:430:20:48

steps in, she scores! The US take

the lead. Marvellous from Marvin.

0:20:480:20:59

She lost the handle of it briefly

but was able to, it through. I think

0:21:000:21:04

that might have pulled Szabados just

enough. -- but she was able to

0:21:040:21:10

hammer it through.

The accidental

move, Meghan Agosta for the

0:21:100:21:15

Canadians. So many goals she is

scored in Olympic play she steps in,

0:21:150:21:22

and rifles it home. Canada level.

So

much confidence on this shooter from

0:21:220:21:29

Agosta. Those left, goes right, it

comes in from the angle, upstairs

0:21:290:21:35

past the blocker.

Rooney gets

outside the post. Just got taken to

0:21:350:21:42

wide by the experienced veteran. Now

Hannah Brandt. Her sister played for

0:21:420:21:48

the Korean team. And now here she is

in the final, and saved by Szabados.

0:21:480:21:59

We are tied at two after two.

Szabados looks behind her, she knows

0:21:590:22:04

she got a piece of it, she wasn't

sure how much, and it stays out.

It

0:22:040:22:11

went between the legs, and Szabados

shut the door. Marie-Philip Poulin,

0:22:110:22:21

two Olympic game-winning goals to

her name. Can she added a third?

0:22:210:22:24

Good save, Rooney. Stay big, stayed

tall. And it raises a smile.

She

0:22:240:22:33

tried to do the same thing that

Agosta did, and Rooney was there the

0:22:330:22:37

whole way. Great stop.

0:22:370:22:42

Pfalzer, walking in an Szabados.

Kick save on the backhand side,

0:22:490:22:56

nothing complicated about that.

Still level.

Three down main street

0:22:560:23:01

for Pfalzer, goes to the backside,

read beautifully by Szabados.

0:23:010:23:12

Melodie Daoust may have been

Canada's best player in this

0:23:120:23:15

tournament, so composed. Oh, my

word! That was incredible! Shades of

0:23:150:23:26

1994. Melodie Daoust with a shoot

out goal to save it.

Are you kidding

0:23:260:23:34

me right now? You've got to be! Look

at this, and amazing goal from

0:23:340:23:44

Daoust, one-handed, she fakes

one-way, sells it and, with one lone

0:23:440:23:48

hand, she gets its past the

netminder.

Amanda Kessel scores, the

0:23:480:23:53

American. Levelling things up. Well,

if Daoust was a thing of beauty,

0:23:530:24:03

that was a thing of power.

Waiting

until Szabados makes the first move,

0:24:030:24:10

and then up over the glove. What a

shot from Amanda Kessel.

Jenner for

0:24:100:24:16

the Canadians. Does she put pressure

on the Americans? Saved. Rooney

0:24:160:24:25

smiles. She knows she's given the

Americans a chance to win gold with

0:24:250:24:31

the next shot.

What they stop right

there.

0:24:310:24:41

there. -- what a stop right there.

Szabados knows, the coach knows.

0:24:410:24:46

Hilary Knight, the face of women's

hockey in the USA. This is the gold

0:24:460:24:49

medal shot... Saved! And we go to

sudden death in the shoot out. And

0:24:490:24:58

who do the coaches pick now?!

I

don't even know what to say! Hilary

0:24:580:25:08

Knight, robbed by Shannon is shut

off. Put that in and you medal

0:25:080:25:11

champions. -- robbed by Shannon

Szabados.

0:25:110:25:20

Szabados. Agosta came out. They

might be taking a bit of a break.

0:25:200:25:22

The US goes first.

They flip after

five, so it goes the other way. It

0:25:220:25:29

is Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson. She

will go, slowly, slowly, all the way

0:25:290:25:34

in. Big move. Rate goal. Shape and

bake -- shake and bake. And now they

0:25:340:25:46

anxiously wait to see whether this

is good enough for gold.

What a move

0:25:460:25:52

from Lamoureux. That is just

perfection right there. It's going

0:25:520:25:57

to be Megan Agosta.

She's already

scored once. She has to score to

0:25:570:26:04

keep Canada in with a chance. Saved!

The USA win gold for the first time

0:26:040:26:11

since 1998!

0:26:110:26:17

since 1998! Canada's run of 24

straight wins in Olympic hockey

0:26:170:26:20

matches is over. They are

devastated! As the

0:26:200:26:29

devastated! As the Americans gather

round the Olympic champions for the

0:26:290:26:31

second time. The Queens ice hockey.

-- the Queens of ice hockey. The USA

0:26:310:26:43

winning it in a shoot out in the

most dramatic of circumstances. 20

0:26:430:26:46

year wait for gold ending, back in

Asia where it all started. And they

0:26:460:26:57

will celebrate the tears of joy and,

on the other side, the tears of

0:26:570:27:04

disappointment. The golden girls of

American hockey.

I took each player

0:27:040:27:13

one at a time and, when it came down

to one, shoot out win it, I just

0:27:130:27:21

said, like, it's one more! And then

a gold-medal! This group within

0:27:210:27:26

means so much to me and I believe we

did it. Thank you, everyone will be

0:27:260:27:33

support.

We knew we'd get it done.

We believed. We played this game

0:27:330:27:39

1000 times in our minds over the

last 40 years, and we didn't care

0:27:390:27:44

how we got it done as long as we got

it.

To the mountain is now, and the

0:27:440:27:49

final of the men's ski halfpipe. No

British interest here after all

0:27:490:27:55

three GB skiers missed out in

qualifying earlier in the week, but

0:27:550:27:58

it's shaping up to be a really

exciting and hotly contested event.

0:27:580:28:02

In the commentary box...

0:28:020:28:06

Tim Warwood is joined by James Woods

in the commentary box.

0:28:060:28:12

Son's out, guns out.

Good to go.

0:28:150:28:24

So, the 16-year-old Kiwi, Nico

Porteous, the first run of three,

0:28:260:28:33

and these Olympic finals gets

underway. Nice style.

Yeah, it's

0:28:330:28:41

looking really good so far, the

switch double that he's been

0:28:410:28:44

practising so hard. He has all the

tricks he needs. Back to back, left

0:28:440:28:49

to right spinning. Oh, my goodness!

That's a huge run from Nico

0:28:490:28:56

Porteous! And it was clean and bake.

He looks at fees to

0:28:560:29:06

He looks at fees to dialect --

fizzed. We spoke before we came on

0:29:090:29:12

air, and these guys have to rip the

lid off it and go crazy from run

0:29:120:29:15

one. Three runs, but it's the best

possible score.

Everything else gets

0:29:150:29:23

scratched, and I might get in

trouble for saying this, but this

0:29:230:29:26

competition is America's to lose.

Yes. Nico Porteous with 82.4,

0:29:260:29:35

getting the first score on the

board.

Fantastic. He's stoked with

0:29:350:29:39

that. Brilliant run.

0:29:390:29:47

Representing Canada, Noah Bowman.

The Canadian camp will be fizzing on

0:29:520:29:59

adrenaline, in thanks also to

Sharp's medal. And now the person

0:29:590:30:09

with the greatest style in halfpipe.

He is liquid skiing. Exactly. And

0:30:090:30:15

truly everyone's favourite. Watch

him. A huge down the pipe 360 to

0:30:150:30:24

start things. We can see the double

1260 switch to switch, switch 99 and

0:30:240:30:32

switch double ten. That is

everything you could possibly want

0:30:320:30:37

to do with switch skiing in a

halfpipe.

0:30:370:30:39

Goodness me!

We can see how

confident Noah Bowman is. I cannot

0:30:390:30:47

express enough how difficult these

tricks are. The one thing his run

0:30:470:30:54

lacks is the lack of forward

spinning, which seems outrageous

0:30:540:30:58

because that is easier to do in the

halfpipe but Noah Bowman choosing

0:30:580:31:02

only to do the one nice setup trick

at the seven. Under right side

0:31:020:31:16

at the seven. Under right side ten

1080 to finish off.

Noah Bowman in

0:31:160:31:23

the lead. David Weiss, the defending

Olympic champion.

0:31:230:31:32

Olympic champion. -- Wise. Who you

would say made a meal of qualifying.

0:31:330:31:38

But he sits in the finals and he has

huge tricks.

A gigantic switch

0:31:380:31:44

double down the

0:31:440:31:50

double down the pipe 1080.

Oh, no,

David Wise going down. Almost a

0:31:500:31:55

setup trick for this man. Wow.

Finding himself in unfamiliar

0:31:550:32:03

territory. You would say he is

finding his form now.

This season he

0:32:030:32:09

has come out of the gate swinging.

Amazing, competing and skiing from

0:32:090:32:15

David Wise. Look how high, it is

insane.

0:32:150:32:22

insane.

And now coming from Canada,

the Sochi silver medallist. The 2017

0:32:240:32:30

world champion.

0:32:300:32:35

world champion. One of the older

guys on the circuit. 31. Huge bag of

0:32:370:32:44

tricks. Some creative grabs in his

tricks bag when he wants to delve

0:32:440:32:51

deep.

Keep your eye on this. Mike Riddle.

0:32:510:32:58

The classic way he always starts.

And alley-oop, holding it to switch,

0:32:580:33:07

very impressive. Double Japan, two

hands on the skis. Back-to-back

0:33:070:33:13

doubles. That has been beautiful.

Look at this, it is almost a

0:33:130:33:26

challenge to do less. Landing nice

and high on the transition and

0:33:260:33:33

keeping up speed, which is what the

judges liked to see. He landed a

0:33:330:33:38

little bit squiffy on the right side

double 12.

0:33:380:33:45

Next to drop, Beau-James Wells. Come

on, Beau! Very good friends with our

0:33:500:34:01

commentator James Woods. And that is

his dad. He has seen his brother

0:34:010:34:06

crash out in practice.

How will he

be feeling? Beau, he has got New

0:34:060:34:13

Zealand on his shoulders and his

brother. Unfortunately he could not

0:34:130:34:22

compete due to injury. Byron

qualified, he was looking great. But

0:34:220:34:27

he went down. It is up to Beau now.

I think that will be the pressure he

0:34:270:34:34

is feeling more than having New

Zealand on his back.

Breakfast time

0:34:340:34:38

at their house in a couple of weeks

would be made easier if he can

0:34:380:34:42

podium. Dropping in switch. Huge.

His signature opener, massive switch

0:34:420:34:53

down the pipe and reaching back for

a tail grab. Splitting those up in

0:34:530:34:58

the wrong.

0:34:580:35:03

the wrong.

Double flares. Oh, my

goodness! Comes across the line like

0:35:050:35:09

Superman. Switch. My goodness.

5.2

metres. This is the double f,

0:35:090:35:18

reaching back further tail. We call

that a blunt.

He will be incredibly

0:35:180:35:25

happy. 87.4. Alex Ferreira, the X

Games silver medallists.

An Aspen

0:35:250:35:39

lad coming out strong since day one.

He has all the tricks and technical

0:35:390:35:45

to win this.

Watch him do it. He won

a tour in Colorado. He is used to

0:35:450:35:54

the top spot. Starting with a huge

1260.

And

0:35:540:36:02

1260.

And a double flare 1080,

taking it to switch, the first time

0:36:030:36:06

we have seen that in the

competition. And the left side

0:36:060:36:11

double corks 12. Switch, double.

That feels good to him. We always

0:36:110:36:19

talk about if the riders are happy,

which he clearly is.

You can see his

0:36:190:36:29

elation, putting the first run down.

He knows it is massive. This

0:36:290:36:34

halfpipe final is America's to lose.

If they land clean, it is which of

0:36:340:36:45

those will land on top.

Yes, Alex

Ferreira!

0:36:450:36:56

Aaron Blunck. The first place

qualifier.

0:36:560:37:00

If he has a receipt for this, now is

the time to redeem it.

0:37:050:37:10

What has he got?

Big start, 720.

Nobody else in the pipe doing this,

0:37:100:37:21

switch, double, completely blind

nine and going straight into the

0:37:210:37:25

switch, right double ten. A huge

aspect in this run. Down the pipe

0:37:250:37:31

900 and right side double 12.

Just when you thought it could not

0:37:310:37:35

get better, Aaron Blunck drops in!

Putting those two switch doubles

0:37:350:37:42

back to back, that is huge. The

judges will lose their mind about

0:37:420:37:46

that.

Look how blind it is, not

looking where he is going, relying

0:37:460:37:51

purely on his Spidey sense.

Absolutely fantastic, switch down

0:37:510:38:03

the pipe, double ten, arguably the

hardest thing, switch down the pipe

0:38:030:38:08

and he did that back-to-back.

0:38:080:38:09

Oh, goodness me! Well, that score

does not reflect his reaction.

0:38:120:38:24

does not reflect his reaction. Run

one looking very good. Alex Ferreira

0:38:250:38:30

tops the spot for USA from Noah

Bowman of Canada and Beau-James

0:38:300:38:35

Wells so the Canadian and Kiwi

keeping the American podium clean

0:38:350:38:40

sweep at bay for now.

Run two of the men's Olympic free

0:38:400:38:50

ski halfpipe final starting here

with a huge double Cork at the top.

0:38:500:38:56

This is where he came a cropper in

the first run. He lost the heel

0:38:560:39:02

piece of the binding. But he is

back. Obviously has a fresh pair of

0:39:020:39:06

skis and that is where it was, on

the right side double flare. The

0:39:060:39:16

pressure going through the skis, it

blew his heel piece apart on the

0:39:160:39:21

binding in the first run and it was

too much for his legs to handle on

0:39:210:39:26

the second run. Obviously nerves

from the first run affecting number

0:39:260:39:31

two.

The Austrian will be relying on

run number three and Andreas Gohl

0:39:310:39:39

trying to replicate something

special in the halfpipe.

Only one

0:39:390:39:44

run counts so he could bring it out

of the bag in run three.

0:39:440:39:52

Nico Porteous, the 16-year-old who

had a stellar run and in your

0:39:520:39:57

probably the bestie has had in the

pipe.

A blinding run from Nico

0:39:570:40:03

Porteous in the pipe. A blinding run

from Nico Porteous inbound one and

0:40:030:40:05

all he can do is improve and sit

back and be first run. He is so much

0:40:050:40:12

more to give.

Starting with something different.

0:40:120:40:21

Double Cork 1440. You cannot express

how much extra it will give this

0:40:210:40:24

run. Backing it up with the right

side double 12. Oh, my days, Nico

0:40:240:40:35

Porteous.

Double alley-oop. Flat

spin nine. It is huge! A 16-year-old

0:40:350:40:44

has delivered like Wayne Rooney on

his debut.

0:40:440:40:46

My goodness, the youngster. He had

enough height on it. Three and a

0:40:460:40:55

half rotations, mums and dads.

Goodness me.

Oh, my goodness! Oh, my

0:40:550:41:01

goodness!

He cannot believe it. Nico

Porteous is well on his way to

0:41:010:41:07

upsetting that potential US 1-2-

three with a huge score.

If you want

0:41:070:41:15

to know just how exciting this is,

James Woods is standing on his seat

0:41:150:41:20

in the commentary booth. As all eyes

go back to the top and the defending

0:41:200:41:27

Olympic champion. The thumb up of

respect from the start Marshall and

0:41:270:41:33

his turn to turn it on. The man who

does not take no for an answer when

0:41:330:41:40

it comes to being taken down in the

halfpipe. Dropping in switch. A huge

0:41:400:41:45

start.

0:41:450:41:51

start. He has gone. Incredible. I

cannot believe this is happening to

0:41:510:41:55

David Wise. The man who sprinkles

pressure on his breakfast cereal,

0:41:550:42:00

and his fans are s.

0:42:000:42:08

and his fans are s.

Oh my goodness,

he clipped the deck and that is how

0:42:100:42:14

the skis are designed, they are

designed to do that and save your

0:42:140:42:18

legs in a less savoury crash.

Beau-James Wells, currently in

0:42:180:42:27

fourth. Smiles all round.

He will be

feeling good after run one. It will

0:42:270:42:35

be difficult to squeeze any more out

of the run with the tricks he had

0:42:350:42:39

and the order it was because it was

flawless. Whether he is saying he is

0:42:390:42:44

going to mix it up and change it, or

boost it to the stratosphere.

We

0:42:440:42:49

have seen with Nico Porteous, he

squeezed the 14 out so will the

0:42:490:42:56

coaches say to him, why not squeeze

more out of it? We will see. Either

0:42:560:43:03

way, a fine exponent of skiing, this

boy.

Beau-James Wells. My goodness,

0:43:030:43:10

that is so exciting. You do not

understand, using the first hit, he

0:43:100:43:16

needed another hit, not reaching

back for tail grab. I have every

0:43:160:43:21

confidence he will do it in run

three.

Landed flat and killed his

0:43:210:43:26

speed. Needs to finish up but he

will rely on run three.

That was

0:43:260:43:35

tactical riding. He knows he needs

to put the switch double on the

0:43:350:43:38

first hit.

He has just checked it

with that run.

Beau-James Wells does

0:43:380:43:48

not start a halfpipe run out without

grabbing a perfect run unless he is

0:43:480:43:53

seriously preoccupied in his mind.

This was not the run. He was using

0:43:530:43:59

it as a warm up. I cannot tell you

how excited I am to see him drop

0:43:590:44:04

that fire on the first hit in run

three.

So, as it stands, Nico

0:44:040:44:12

Porteous, who never mind reading the

script, I doubt he has done his

0:44:120:44:17

homework. Leading from Alex Ferreira

and Noah Bowman. Torin

0:44:170:44:24

Yater-Wallace.

Put fuel on his fire

and you will see him go mad. Not the

0:44:240:44:33

first run. He is not sitting where

he wants to be, nowhere near.

In

0:44:330:44:39

2017 this boy had an infection and

almost died, he was in a coma. He

0:44:390:44:45

has come out guns blazing since

then. Look how big that is.

With the

0:44:450:44:51

right double 12 to start things off.

Everybody seems to take it from him.

0:44:510:44:58

Switch, right, left, down the pipe.

Oh, my goodness!

His double

0:44:580:45:05

alley-oop. Can he land? No. He could

not land it. We spoke about it on

0:45:050:45:12

the run before. He could have got

another hit in but you will not see

0:45:120:45:17

a bigger fifth hit the match today.

He has no business doing that there.

0:45:170:45:24

He knows at that point he can see

the lift. Tries to bring his legs

0:45:240:45:28

in, to disaster.

That

0:45:280:45:36

in, to disaster.

That is really

sore, man.. Do you know what that

0:45:360:45:38

Smiley 's? That is I have got this

final in the bag, if I can figure it

0:45:380:45:43

out.

0:45:430:45:49

Alex Ferreira currently sit in

second.

A very surprising position

0:45:510:45:54

for him to be in. The rest of the

Americans didn't land perfect runs.

0:45:540:46:02

Alex was expecting to be first, then

Nico Porteous came down and dropped

0:46:020:46:07

some incredible fire, so Alex

Ferreira back on the hot seat. He

0:46:070:46:09

lands a bit flat.

But he keeps his

speed into the double 1080 switch.

0:46:090:46:16

Down the pipe, back-to-back tens. He

needs to run it up a bit, which he

0:46:160:46:21

does. Final hit! Even better than

his first run!

Alex Ferreira is

0:46:210:46:31

stepping up to the plate.

0:46:310:46:38

stepping up to the plate.

The Harry

Potter of the halfpipe world. Just

0:46:380:46:42

Wizarding is worthy -- his way

through this. Absolutely ludicrous!

0:46:420:46:50

Is classic helicopter pole.

An

unknown entity with Nico Porteous

0:46:500:46:55

sitting on top. It was gorgeous and

something we've never seen. How are

0:46:550:47:02

the judges going to compare Alex

Ferreira to that? It's not the

0:47:020:47:07

point, it's the position.

Oh, my

goodness!

0:47:070:47:13

goodness! I think he'll explode if

he wins the gold medal. I think he

0:47:130:47:17

will actually explode. And you know

what, the magnitude of this

0:47:170:47:21

competition, I think just get Nico

Porteous. So, run two, the results

0:47:210:47:29

look like this. Aaron Blunck, the

hot favourite, in six. A crazy run

0:47:290:47:39

from Nico Porteous. Alex Ferreira

once again answering straight back

0:47:390:47:45

with a 96 flat. Well, this is the

Olympics, and I think we're going to

0:47:450:47:53

see everybody stepping it up. They

are all going for gold, and that's

0:47:530:47:57

the aim. Third and final run in the

men's halfpipe final here in boat

0:47:570:48:07

buying. It's been an incredible

couple of weeks courtesy of the

0:48:070:48:13

freestyle disciplines and, I've got

to be honest, I woke up this morning

0:48:130:48:17

thinking it was going to fizzle out

a bit, but this is absolutely,

0:48:170:48:21

absolutely delivering, yet again.

Another incredible final, where the

0:48:210:48:28

bar is being raised and no

disrespect whatsoever against

0:48:280:48:34

Andreas Gohl, but he has a lot to

do.

He has to race this perfectly,

0:48:340:48:39

but he isn't alone right now. A lot

of the big men in the same position.

0:48:390:48:43

A bit squiffy on his landing. Here

is where it's gone down, run one and

0:48:430:48:49

two. He is further down this pipe

that he's been yet in this final.

0:48:490:48:57

Left 900 tail, right into the middle

of the halfpipe. Back-to-back left

0:48:570:49:02

and right, 900. What a commendable

way to finish out a final race.

All

0:49:020:49:11

that these guys want to do, all you

wanted to do, what's to come and put

0:49:110:49:15

your run down, and he's done that.

It's now out of his hands.

0:49:150:49:21

Absolutely. He's put it down under

more pressure than you could

0:49:210:49:24

possibly put on one person, and he's

done it in impeccable style.

Seventh

0:49:240:49:31

position for Andreas Gohl. Very

happy with that, smiles all round,

0:49:310:49:37

and he's come and delivered on the

biggest stage of all, the men's

0:49:370:49:40

Olympic final.

Nico Porteous, the

beginning of this final, so happy

0:49:400:49:48

and grateful to be in. He's got the

big tricks but he doesn't have the

0:49:480:49:52

experience and name of these big

guys. In his second run, you put

0:49:520:49:59

down a 94 point something and, all

of a sudden, when Ferreira took the

0:49:590:50:03

lead off him, the sincerity of this

competition really hit him. Nico

0:50:030:50:11

Porteous is accepting that second

run is an absolute blinder and, you

0:50:110:50:14

know what, good for him.

B isn't

going to improve, he feels, so he is

0:50:140:50:21

surfing this one out, enjoying

himself. And he says, you know what,

0:50:210:50:24

I will not better that.

0:50:240:50:30

I will not better that.

Interesting

move from Nico, not taking his third

0:50:300:50:33

run or three, but that second run...

Now David Wise, the defending

0:50:330:50:40

Olympic champion, the most winning

of male halfpipe skiers.

I wonder if

0:50:400:50:49

nerves were a thing between first

and second runs.

0:50:490:50:56

and second runs.

Drop it in.

Or

pressure on David Wise. More than

0:50:560:51:00

you can think imagine. Down the

pipe, not as clean, a bit of a

0:51:000:51:06

riddle, but completed it nicely.

Left side, double cork, 1260.

0:51:060:51:14

Perfect. Switch, left, down the

pipe, ten, a right side 12 to finish

0:51:140:51:19

this off. Boom!

Oh, that it!

Perfect! The only thing I can pick

0:51:190:51:29

out of this run is that first hit,

the switch right double 1080. Did he

0:51:290:51:34

wriggle out of it and not hold the

grab as long as he could? Was it a

0:51:340:51:38

stress to land it?

Under the most

amount of pressure... 97.2! The

0:51:380:51:47

defending Olympic champion Paul is a

proverbial rabbit out of the hat.

0:51:470:51:54

What can this boy do? Beau-James

Wells.

He's done everything he is

0:52:000:52:06

plenty to do thus far in this

competition. In this year in the

0:52:060:52:11

lead up, Beau has been eyeing up the

Olympics like a hawk.

0:52:110:52:19

Olympics like a hawk. He's got a

switch double in his Arsenal. He's

0:52:190:52:20

started every run with a big switch

down at 720, and then he's gone on

0:52:200:52:28

to put down flawless runs. Whether

he's going to use that switch double

0:52:280:52:33

right now or trying to boost that

run that he knows better than anyone

0:52:330:52:37

to try and up this score, we are

about to find out. Dropping in,

0:52:370:52:43

switch, really fast. Beau-James

Wells from New Zealand. Switch,

0:52:430:52:46

double, down the pipe. He laces it.

This is the run for Beau. Right side

0:52:460:52:52

double 12. All he has to do is to

fit straight back into his routine.

0:52:520:53:00

Double flare, right side double

flare, linking back-to-back. Left,

0:53:000:53:05

double 12, Beau landed it clean.

Well done, that man. Talk about

0:53:050:53:10

stepping up when it counts, man!

Well, you said it. You knew he had

0:53:100:53:16

that switch double in his -- in his

Arsenal.

What a nice rotation. That

0:53:160:53:25

is the trip we have seen punishing

Kevin Roland three times. David Wise

0:53:250:53:28

on his first two runs put

no, he

hasn't! Its fourth place for him.

0:53:280:53:37

So, Alex Ferreira. I mean, I can't

even begin to describe how he's

0:53:370:53:43

feeling at the moment.

He knows he's

second, maybe third, if Aaron Blunck

0:53:430:53:50

can hit him, but he is on that

podium. He's definitely going to

0:53:500:53:53

want to punch for the top spot.

He's

got it tumbled first after his first

0:53:530:54:02

run, first after his second run can

he be versed after this? If ever

0:54:020:54:09

there was a time to rip the lead of

it, this is it. But come on, Alex

0:54:090:54:13

Ferreira.

That was huge. This is the

biggest that we might have seen all

0:54:130:54:19

day. Switching perfectly.

He is

running on pure adrenaline. That's

0:54:190:54:25

massive!

He is going so big and the

TV doesn't do it justice.

Oh, my

0:54:250:54:33

goodness! Alex Ferreira has not

knocked it out of the park, he's

0:54:330:54:40

strapped it to a space rocket and

sent it into outer space! What was

0:54:400:54:44

that?!

And somehow he landed

perfectly afterwards.

I've never

0:54:440:54:52

seen anything like it!

That was

huge.

I think he's going to explode.

0:54:520:54:57

Cover your eyes, people oh, 96.4.

You can see the message from the

0:54:570:55:04

judges. They said, look, you went so

big, you bested that earlier run, we

0:55:040:55:10

are going to give you a higher

score, but it just can't stand up to

0:55:100:55:15

David Wise's technicality. But wow

what so the final skier looking to

0:55:150:55:22

make it an American one, two, three,

a podium lock-out. He wants a medal.

0:55:220:55:26

Of course he wants the gold medal.

But has Aaron Blunck, the first

0:55:260:55:32

place qualifier, but enough left in

his tank?

Classic Aaron Blunck

0:55:320:55:35

start. Right side 720, the only

player doing that. Completely blind

0:55:350:55:46

into the switch. Double 1080 renewed

background into forwards. Switch

0:55:460:55:50

double down the pipe, flatscreen

nine. -- flat spin. That right side

0:55:500:56:00

double cork tail grab is what he

missed the grab on and that's what

0:56:000:56:03

the judges punished in run one. Run

two didn't go to plan.

I don't know

0:56:030:56:10

what disabled I'd be very nervous if

I was Nico Porteous. He is currently

0:56:100:56:16

sitting on 94.8, which is huge.

A

massive score. Aaron Blunck will

0:56:160:56:23

have to be flawless and the judges

will have to think so but into top

0:56:230:56:27

Nico was

the needs a smoke screen

and some mirrors to help him with

0:56:270:56:33

this. The judges will be having a

headache. This score is going to

0:56:330:56:37

take for ever to come through, I'm

pretty sure. Aaron Blunck, the

0:56:370:56:43

American who qualified in first

place, looking to make it an

0:56:430:56:47

American one, two, three, which we

saw in qualifying. If it happens,

0:56:470:56:50

they've left it very late. What? Oh,

my goodness!

He doesn't do it!

84.8,

0:56:500:57:02

and look at that! Well, well, well!

That is a men's ski halfpipe final

0:57:020:57:06

to remember. I hope you have that

recorded, because it will take some

0:57:060:57:11

watching again to try and decide for

the code of that Wimbledon Alex

0:57:110:57:17

Ferreira takes second. Huge

0:57:170:57:22

Ferreira takes second. Huge shout

out to Nico Porteous, but David

0:57:240:57:27

Wise, the Olympic champion, has

pulled the cat out of the bag in his

0:57:270:57:30

third and final run. So the official

results are in. David Wise takes the

0:57:300:57:34

gold.

0:57:340:57:41

gold. Shout out to Beau-James Wells,

with the best run he's ever produced

0:57:410:57:43

for fourth.

0:57:430:57:49

for fourth.

Double Olympic champion

must feel pretty good.

Honestly I'm

0:57:520:57:55

in disbelief. I was when I won lost

time and I am today.

To do it in

0:57:550:58:00

front

0:58:000:58:00

time and I am today.

To do it in

front of the family must be special.

0:58:000:58:03

It's so cool to be with my family. I

feel like the front man for an

0:58:030:58:10

amazing team, from coaches to

doctors, strength trainers,

0:58:100:58:13

everybody, and my team really starts

with those four people, my wife and

0:58:130:58:18

kids, so to have them supporting me

here is amazing. I'm so excited.

0:58:180:58:23

Win, lose or fall, I had my people

with me. It was so cool.

0:58:230:58:31

with me. It was so cool.

Two PB runs

back-to-back is a dream come true,

0:58:320:58:35

especially at the Olympics. It

couldn't get better.

0:58:350:58:38

That's all from us for now,

but I'll be back at 12:30am over

0:58:380:58:41

on BBC One with live coverage

of the Women's Free Skate,

0:58:410:58:44

and we'll have extended highlights

of that on BBC Four tomorrow night.

0:58:440:58:47

See you then.

0:58:470:58:49

Extended action from South Korea, including the women's ice hockey final and the climax of the men's ski halfpipe competition.
