Previously at the Winter Olympics...

It is the golden double!

It is a

0:00:110:00:19

wonderful day, Great Britain's Fran

hall.

A new Olympic record,

0:00:190:00:25

sensational skating!

The Norwegian

will take the gold medal, incredible

0:00:250:00:29

drama at the finish!

0:00:290:00:35

drama at the finish!

Day ten!

0:00:360:00:44

Day ten, and the action

is coming thick and fast.

0:01:010:01:04

Welcome to Today At The Games,

0:01:040:01:06

and tonight we're cramming seven

different sports into the next hour.

0:01:060:01:14

A bob job for Brad and Joel,

who were seventh halfway through.

0:01:140:01:20

Torvill and Dean set

the standard in ice dance.

0:01:200:01:23

Flying the flag for Britain,

Coomes and Buckland.

0:01:230:01:27

Norway's leaping wonders

look to land one

0:01:270:01:28

of the few medals they're missing.

0:01:280:01:34

They go for ski-jumping

gold in the team event.

0:01:340:01:36

We'll stay in the air, big air,

0:01:360:01:38

for a first look at the one

of the newest Olympic sports.

0:01:380:01:41

From leaping to sweeping,

it was crunch time at the curling.

0:01:410:01:44

Then it's skates on

for the women's ice hockey.

0:01:440:01:47

It's semifinal time.

0:01:470:01:51

And full throttle in the halfpipe.

0:01:510:01:53

Can Rowan Cheshire

flip her way into the final?

0:01:530:02:01

And to discuss this, a three-time

Olympian, world champion bobsledder,

0:02:050:02:10

Nicola Minichiello, and fresh off

the plane from Pyeongchang, Amy

0:02:100:02:15

Williams, feeling OK? You with us?

I

am here in body but not brain

0:02:150:02:19

function!

We won't ask you any tough

questions! Looked like you enjoyed

0:02:190:02:26

yourself out there.

It was amazing,

to go in on those really special

0:02:260:02:30

days, bringing home medals, and we

just completely forgot the camera

0:02:300:02:35

was there! Trying to remain

professional, but clearly not! But I

0:02:350:02:43

can't even describe what it was like

to bring home those medals for Great

0:02:430:02:47

Britain.

A moment of history, and

you were part of it, and helped

0:02:470:02:51

inspire it, which is all good.

0:02:510:02:55

And it's with the bobsleigh

that we start.

0:02:550:02:57

Brad Hall and Joel Fearon are just

0.29 seconds out of the medals

0:02:570:03:00

at the halfway stage.

0:03:000:03:01

The last time GB won a medal

in this event

0:03:010:03:03

was Tony Nash and Robin

Dixon's gold in 1964.

0:03:030:03:11

Welcome to the Olympics leading

centre for runs three and four of

0:03:280:03:33

the two-man competition. GB are

currently in seventh, with Germany

0:03:330:03:36

dominating, with three teams in the

top five positions. It is bobsleigh

0:03:360:03:40

time!

0:03:400:03:43

Nico Walther, the leader after

remember two, made any mistakes, his

0:03:490:03:54

lead evaporated, he drops to paved.

Justin Kripps of Canada has a podium

0:03:540:03:59

or bust attitude, a really strong

run takes into the lead. Johannes

0:03:590:04:05

Lochner continued to slightly over

achieve, world number six goes third

0:04:050:04:10

after another consistent run. Oskars

Melbardis of Latvia has been

0:04:100:04:15

struggling with corner two all week,

much better to hold fourth-place.

0:04:150:04:23

Francesco Friedrich, so

disappointing in Sochi, put himself

0:04:230:04:25

right back in the game, the only man

to go under 49 seconds. And Brad

0:04:250:04:33

Hall was to lose ground, starting

seventh, slowest run of three so

0:04:330:04:37

far, now dropping to 11.

0:04:370:04:46

The British will be disappointed

that they have fallen back to 11th,

0:04:470:04:51

but they are still in a strong

position going into the fourth and

0:04:510:04:54

final heat.

Brad Hall for Great Britain, he has

0:04:540:05:00

got all of Great Britain behind him.

He needs a really good one here, his

0:05:000:05:09

starts time, 4.97, and that is

pretty decent.

It is, but he needs

0:05:090:05:14

to get through this corner, and that

is not going to help, that little

0:05:140:05:19

tab. He has got a big lead over the

Swiss, but I don't know whether that

0:05:190:05:23

tap at the top will help them out,

he really needs to try to tune into

0:05:230:05:28

the track, make sure he is perfect

from now on. He has been good on

0:05:280:05:33

this track, he has been good through

this point coming up now. Just a

0:05:330:05:37

little bit late coming in, I don't

know whether he has got the speed to

0:05:370:05:42

stay Ayr, we really want to be in

the top ten, this will be down to

0:05:420:05:48

the hundredths, can you do enough to

stay in France?

It is going to be

0:05:480:05:52

close, isn't it? Fading away maybe,

it is not to be!

That run was only

0:05:520:05:58

good enough to secure a top 12

finish, so a question of sitting

0:05:580:06:03

back as the medals were decided.

Strap yourself in for a fantastic

0:06:030:06:08

race for the medals now. Mel Bas

0:06:080:06:14

race for the medals now. Mel Bas --

Melbardis comes next, he needs his

0:06:160:06:20

usual 4.9 start, let's see if he

gets it. 4.92, fine.

Because of the

0:06:200:06:27

staff difference, we will see that

gap grow, but he will start pulling

0:06:270:06:32

away, so will you drive well enough,

a mistake there yesterday. Will he

0:06:320:06:37

be good enough to stay in front of

the Germans who had a perfect run?

0:06:370:06:42

All of the top pilots, there is

nothing between them, absolutely

0:06:420:06:45

nothing. The skill level is amazing,

and that is another perfect run into

0:06:450:06:52

that corner, he has got that nailed,

slightly better than Nico Walther,

0:06:520:06:58

has a good enough to hold onto

Maggie loses a bit of ground here.

I

0:06:580:07:04

think he probably will, 15 clean,

16, does he take the lead? He does,

0:07:040:07:09

guaranteed fourth at worst.

Melbardis has done all he can, he

0:07:090:07:14

has finished ahead of Nico Walther,

a good effort. Well, well, well,

0:07:140:07:19

this means the Germans so want to

get this gold medal, they had three

0:07:190:07:24

chances, only one more chance of

gold, and it remains in the hands of

0:07:240:07:29

Francesco Friedrich, the man who had

a nightmare in Sochi, went so well

0:07:290:07:33

fancied. He is a superb, superb

pilot, but can he now put his name

0:07:330:07:39

alongside the greats? Let's see how

he starts.

One thing we know for

0:07:390:07:46

certain knee, Germany are going to

get a medal, because Nico Walther is

0:07:460:07:52

sitting second, so whatever happens,

if he comes down in front behind,

0:07:520:07:55

they have got a medal, which is what

they need. But he is not bothered

0:07:550:08:00

about Nico Walther, he is worried

about him getting gold. He lit the

0:08:000:08:06

afterburners on run one, set a new

track record, the only person and 49

0:08:060:08:11

seconds. Will this be the run to get

him a gold medal? That was almost

0:08:110:08:15

perfect, starting to pull away. A

little bit late into that corner?

0:08:150:08:20

That will cost him speed. Dropping

off, has he got enough track left to

0:08:200:08:25

stay in front of the Latvians?

Has

he got enough in the belt? Can

0:08:250:08:30

Friedrich do it? He has, just moved

ahead of the Latvian! Friedrich goes

0:08:300:08:34

to the front, guaranteed silver. Are

we going to get one final are people

0:08:340:08:42

as Justin Kripps of Canada waits in

the sidelines? Friedrich has done

0:08:420:08:47

what he can, Germany will win gold

with Francesco Friedrich is, or will

0:08:470:08:52

Canada win gold with this man,

Justin Kripps, who is now, in the

0:08:520:09:00

next 60 seconds or so, attempting to

win gold in this two-man event for

0:09:000:09:05

Canada for the first time since

1998, he has had identical start on

0:09:050:09:14

each of these three runs, 4.93 is

the figure to watch out for. He is

0:09:140:09:22

capable of 4.909, which would do it,

of course. -- 40 9.0 nine. 4.93, as

0:09:220:09:30

he goes Canada.

What you are going

to see here is, initially, falling

0:09:300:09:37

into the red, as they have done,

because of the starts deficit

0:09:370:09:40

between these and Friedrich. So what

is now going to happen is Justin

0:09:400:09:46

will have to drive the run of his

life to come down, and he has been

0:09:460:09:50

so consistent this year, been on the

podium nearly every race. His worst

0:09:500:09:57

result is top four, absolutely

nailing this, starting to pull in

0:09:570:10:01

front of the Germans. They have made

mistakes at this point, they can't

0:10:010:10:06

afford to make any mistakes. This

will be gold for Canada and Leslie

0:10:060:10:09

makes a mistake, definitely a gold

medal run. -- unless he makes a

0:10:090:10:14

mistake.

Can he do it? Oh, it is a

dead heat! It is a dead heat with

0:10:140:10:19

Friedrich! For the first time in 20

years, we have a dead heat! That is

0:10:190:10:27

absolutely extraordinary! In 1998,

the Italian had a dead heat with the

0:10:270:10:35

Canadian, and we have the same

scenario again! Kripps and Friedrich

0:10:350:10:42

shared the gold! Oskars Melbardis is

in bronze medal position.

0:10:420:10:47

Astonishing drama once again at the

Sliding Centre.

0:10:470:10:54

Amazing performance, joint gold

medal.

Thank you.

How was your final

0:10:540:10:59

run?

The final run and the third run

was so clean and so good, and I

0:10:590:11:05

don't thought that just in could tie

in the last run, but he had 100th in

0:11:050:11:11

front, then the tie, it was

fantastic.

I knew that I needed

0:11:110:11:16

everything for the last run,

mentally and physically, and we

0:11:160:11:19

managed to do it, and to come down

in a type is incredible, winning the

0:11:190:11:23

Olympics and sharing with friends,

it is amazing.

We cannot be upset

0:11:230:11:27

about that, the two-man is not where

we are showing, to beat our position

0:11:270:11:33

by one place, our season's best, if

we do that in the four man, that

0:11:330:11:38

will make us number one, can't be

too upset about that.

We will talk

0:11:380:11:42

about Brad Hall

0:11:420:11:45

too upset about that.

We will talk

about Brad Hall in a moment, but

0:11:450:11:46

what a great celebration of the

bobsleigh community, the friendship

0:11:460:11:50

in bobsleigh.

Just an amazing day,

amazing race, and those two would

0:11:500:11:56

have to be the favourites, Friedrich

is well champion, Kripps is the

0:11:560:12:00

World Cup champion, but anything can

happen, we have seen it in luge and

0:12:000:12:04

skeleton. If Melbardis had made that

mistake on the second run, he would

0:12:040:12:09

have been in the gold medal

position. To see the Germans at the

0:12:090:12:12

first people over to congratulate

0:12:120:12:15

position. To see the Germans at the

first people over to congratulate

0:12:150:12:15

the Canadians

it was lovely, I guess

you all go through the same thing,

0:12:150:12:19

week in, week out, and you're all

winners, a gold medal each.

It is

0:12:190:12:27

lovely, and you travel six or seven

months of the year together, you are

0:12:270:12:31

in the hotels, same routine, you

have such strong friendships and

0:12:310:12:35

bonds between each nation.

0:12:350:12:40

Four runs added up to suddenly get

exactly the same times, like Nicola

0:12:400:12:45

said, both champions, it is so

lovely to see both of them on the

0:12:450:12:50

podium, clearly absolutely the best

in the world. And yeah, to see it,

0:12:500:12:56

it is so lovely.

It makes me think

of Lizzie and Laurent Depoitre, so

0:12:560:13:03

much more fun when you are sharing!

Let's look at the split screen. --

0:13:030:13:09

Lizzie and Laura on the podium.

0:13:090:13:17

Kripps starts behind him but starts

to claw it back, a few hundredths

0:13:170:13:25

ahead at this point, then he makes

one mistake and starts to pull it

0:13:250:13:29

back. Until the very last corner,

until the finish, we don't have a

0:13:290:13:33

clue who is going to win.

0:13:330:13:39

clue who is going to win.

0.06 going

into it, I think. A dead heat in the

0:13:400:13:43

two-man for the second time, it

happened in 1998, and also a dead

0:13:430:13:48

heat for bronze that year in the

men's four, GB were in that dead

0:13:480:13:53

heat, it happened twice that year.

Unbelievable, five men in three

0:13:530:14:00

places that year!

Talking of space,

we have space for one more person,

0:14:000:14:04

and we had Christopher Dean in the

studio, but that is only half the

0:14:040:14:08

story.

0:14:080:14:09

MUSIC PLAYS

0:14:170:14:24

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean

of the world ice dance champions.

0:14:310:14:39

People are standing and applauding,

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean

0:14:390:14:43

how won.

Jayne Torvill and

Christopher Dean go first.

0:14:430:14:52

Delighted to say that Jayne Torvill

is with us! I wanted to ask you,

0:14:560:15:00

before we get into the ice dance,

what makes the perfect pair?

You

0:15:000:15:04

have to let him think he is the

boss! No, seriously, it is, you

0:15:040:15:10

know, at this level of competition,

you have to be so tuned into each

0:15:100:15:14

other, and you have to have that

discipline of training day in, day

0:15:140:15:18

out, you have to both want it.

Time

together really matters, you can't

0:15:180:15:23

do it overnight. To get used to it,

you absolutely know what move your

0:15:230:15:29

partner will make, and you will know

if there is a problem from his eyes.

0:15:290:15:33

You have to know but other closely.

The aim is to finish in the top 20

0:15:330:15:40

for the short programme, and for the

British duo, the major victory has

0:15:400:15:43

been getting to Pyeongchang at all.

0:15:430:15:47

Three months after the 2016 World

Championship, Penny Coomes shattered

0:15:540:15:58

her kneecap into eight pieces during

a routine lift in training. Two

0:15:580:16:03

operations and 19 months later, she

and Nick Buckland returns to action

0:16:030:16:07

to qualify for Pyeongchang, and here

they are aiming for a top eight

0:16:070:16:10

finish. COMMENTATOR:

You can see the

strapping on Penny's right knee.

A

0:16:100:16:18

little bit tentative. They would

have loved level four on the twizzle

0:16:180:16:23

is, but it was terrific.

She was

told she would never skate again but

0:16:230:16:28

Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland are

back on Olympic ice.

I feel excited

0:16:280:16:32

to get back out there again. When

they were reading out the scores, I

0:16:320:16:42

smiled to myself because after

everything I have been through, I

0:16:420:16:43

made it.

One of three couples

competing from

0:16:430:16:52

competing from the USA, Maia

Shibutani and Alex Shibutani,

0:16:530:16:55

brother and sister, put in a

confident performance that saw them

0:16:550:16:58

take the lead. But the world

champions and gold medallists from

0:16:580:17:06

the team event, Canada's Tessa

Virtue and Scott Moir, on the ice

0:17:060:17:11

next competing in their last games

and hoping to take home a second

0:17:110:17:14

gold from South Korea.

Terrific

control through the midline step

0:17:140:17:22

sequence.

And the world champions

want that Olympic title. It was only

0:17:220:17:28

silver in Sochi.

We are happy we

executed but we know there is a

0:17:280:17:33

tonne of work to do tomorrow, the

main skate. We have to come out

0:17:330:17:37

ready to go.

A new world record for

Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue, coached

0:17:370:17:43

by the same person as their closest

rivals, Papadakis and Cizeron from

0:17:430:17:50

France, making the Olympic debut,

and it was certainly memorable.

0:17:500:17:56

Whoa. Wouldn't want that to happen

made to twizzle.

An unfortunate

0:17:560:18:02

wardrobe malfunction, wouldn't want

that to happen mid-sequence.

It was

0:18:020:18:08

tough considering what happened. But

it was still a great experience. I

0:18:080:18:15

think we still managed to keep our

focus and enjoy the moment. It could

0:18:150:18:20

have been better, for sure, but what

is done is done, and we have to look

0:18:200:18:25

forward now.

Madison Hubbell and

Zachary Donahue, the last of the

0:18:250:18:31

American couples to take to the ice.

Could they finish the short

0:18:310:18:35

programme in contention for a medal?

Skating at their first Olympics.

0:18:350:18:38

They need to come out on top when it

comes to the team USA rival. Scott

0:18:380:18:47

Moir and Tessa Virtue have laid down

the benchmark. The last two couples

0:18:470:18:50

falling short of that. So, we are

all set for an exciting competition

0:18:500:18:57

tomorrow. Confirmation of the

qualification standings... Madison

0:18:570:19:02

Hubbell and Zachary Donahue of the

USA currently in the bronze medal

0:19:020:19:05

position. Papadakis and Cizeron,

less than two points behind their

0:19:050:19:13

training mates from Canada, Tessa

Virtue and Scott Moir, with a new

0:19:130:19:17

world record, looking to come away

with two more gold medals from this

0:19:170:19:22

Olympic Games.

0:19:220:19:25

Katherine Downes and Robin cousins

describing the action. Penny Coomes

0:19:250:19:30

and Nick Buckland, an amazing

achievement to get

0:19:300:19:32

and Nick Buckland, an amazing

achievement to get this far.

They

0:19:320:19:36

easily qualify to get through to the

free dance. I think when they do the

0:19:360:19:40

free dance it will be such a joy for

them to do because they have nothing

0:19:400:19:43

to lose and everything to gain.

The

standard set for the new record

0:19:430:19:48

score for the short dance from Tessa

Virtue and Scott Moir, champions in

0:19:480:19:54

Vancouver. Only a silver medal,

slightly controversially in Sochi.

0:19:540:19:58

They retired and have come back

again and look great together on the

0:19:580:20:01

ice.

To have a two year gap and then

to come back at that level is really

0:20:010:20:06

tough. They were obviously at the

top when they decided to have a gap,

0:20:060:20:12

and they want to be at the top

again. They have obviously worked

0:20:120:20:17

very hard. They're skating skills

and presentation is fantastic.

And

0:20:170:20:22

they always look like they are

enjoying it.

Would they do, and they

0:20:220:20:27

are great performers. Sometimes I

find it a bit over the top, but that

0:20:270:20:31

is their style. Their unison and

speed over the ice is amazing.

But

0:20:310:20:37

the couple everyone is talking

about, and I'm afraid for the wrong

0:20:370:20:43

reasons because of the wardrobe

malfunction, the French pair.

0:20:430:20:46

reasons because of the wardrobe

malfunction, the French pair. This

0:20:460:20:47

was really unfortunate, because they

could easily have been leading. It's

0:20:470:20:50

definitely impeded their freedom.

You can see the dress breaking early

0:20:500:20:56

on, the halterneck has gone.

To have

that right at the beginning of the

0:20:560:21:01

routine. Your mind is on overdrive,

trying to think ahead on how you can

0:21:010:21:07

deal with certain moves and hope for

the best.

And you can't stop and get

0:21:070:21:12

it fixed.

No.

Surely if it had come

all the way down, they would have

0:21:120:21:18

had to stop.

They are not supposed

to stop and not allowed.

Would they

0:21:180:21:26

be penalised?

They wouldn't be

penalised for the dress coming

0:21:260:21:28

undone. They lost a few points on

their synchronicity in the twizzles,

0:21:280:21:33

and one of hers was a bit scratchy,

but that was down to the dress. The

0:21:330:21:39

last time they skated against the

Canadians in the short dance, the

0:21:390:21:43

French won. Clearly today, the

Canadians were much better.

But it's

0:21:430:21:47

still very tight and could turn

around. Brilliant stuff.

0:21:470:21:52

Norway are the leading

Winter Olympic nation, and ski

0:21:520:21:55

jumping has historically been a very

strong sport for them, but they have

0:21:550:21:58

never won the team competition.

0:21:580:21:59

Today they were trying to break that

duck, as Paddy reports.

0:21:590:22:02

Ski jumping is known for its

individuals, but this is where the

0:22:090:22:12

Flyers compete with their flock.

Germany are the reigning Olympic

0:22:120:22:16

champions, but their flight crew is

much changed from Sochi. Poland have

0:22:160:22:21

the individual large hill gold

medallist on

0:22:210:22:29

medallist on board in Stoch but they

have never won a team gold medal.

0:22:290:22:33

Norway with Robert Johansson comedy

of the orange moustache and gold

0:22:330:22:36

medals.

0:22:360:22:41

medals. This is the last chance to

see him in action in Pyeongchang.

0:22:420:22:45

But he couldn't finish on a high,

Japan down in sixth. -- in fifth.

0:22:450:22:54

Austria have been a fading force of

late. They were fast losing touch by

0:22:540:22:58

the third job of the third round.

I

think he wanted more from that.

We

0:22:580:23:03

knew who would be on the podium by

the final jumps but were not sure of

0:23:030:23:07

the order. Norway leading all along

with Poland edging into second from

0:23:070:23:11

Germany. First of the top three,

German Andreas the individual large

0:23:110:23:15

hill silver medallist. Lee Williams

takes up the story. COMMENTATOR:

0:23:150:23:22

It's down to these, Andreas

Wellinger for Germany. He has an

0:23:220:23:31

Olympic gold and Olympic silver

already. He's going to get another

0:23:310:23:35

medal. What colour will it be? It's

quite long. He looks like he wanted

0:23:350:23:41

a little bit more. 1:34.5. It opens

the door a fraction for Poland. --

0:23:410:23:50

134.5. Germany's final score. And we

will see whether the man who won

0:23:500:23:59

gold on Saturday can pull Poland

above that.

0:23:590:24:06

above that. Stoch, the three-time

Olympic champion. He won the gold on

0:24:090:24:12

Saturday. They smuggled crates of

beer into the Olympic Village

0:24:120:24:16

afterwards. Poland were just happy

to be celebrating. Will they

0:24:160:24:20

celebrate again? 134.5, matching

Andreas Wellinger, and we will go to

0:24:200:24:27

the judges. Those faces are gripped

on the screen. They will see it when

0:24:270:24:33

you do. They are second.

0:24:330:24:40

you do. They are second. 1072.4, and

they will take at least the bronze

0:24:400:24:43

medal, but Germany stay ahead of

them. Will it be silver or gold?

0:24:430:24:48

Robert Johansson of Norway has about

a 20 point cushion to play with. And

0:24:480:24:54

for him and Norway, gold is just

some whiskers away.

0:24:540:24:59

Here he goes for gold...

0:25:030:25:07

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

enough for gold for Norway! Gold for

0:25:150:25:22

Robert Johansson. Gold for the team

there on top of him already. He has

0:25:220:25:30

been imperious all Olympics long.

Two bronze medals. And now they are

0:25:300:25:35

going to be champions in the team

event for the first time in their

0:25:350:25:39

history, which is mad, crazy. The

Norwegians invented this, winning 30

0:25:390:25:45

medals at the Olympics but never

winning the team event. And the man

0:25:450:25:50

who has captured so much attention

around the world is the man who gets

0:25:500:25:54

to glide home to gold.

0:25:540:26:00

to glide home to gold. There will be

no close shave in this Olympic team

0:26:030:26:06

final. Robert Johansson delivers a

gold medal for Norway. They will

0:26:060:26:13

stand on top of that team podium

step for the first time. Those

0:26:130:26:18

whiskers are golden, and Norway are

your team's ski jump Olympic

0:26:180:26:21

champions.

0:26:210:26:24

So, out in front by a long way,

Norway. Germany sneaking into silver

0:26:260:26:31

position ahead of Poland, but the

bronze is a long overdue team medal

0:26:310:26:36

for a nation that loves its jumping.

0:26:360:26:39

STUDIO: Paddy Dearie reporting, but

great commentary from Robbie

0:26:390:26:43

Williams. The great thing about Joe

Hanson's moustache, it doesn't move,

0:26:430:26:47

even through the job.

He takes off

at 91 kph and he lands and it stays

0:26:470:26:53

perfect.

Does he put gel and

hairspray?

I will ask Ollie to find

0:26:530:27:00

out.

Maybe it has so much stuff on

it it will snap!

0:27:000:27:09

Staying in the air now,

and it's time for a debut event

0:27:090:27:12

at the Winter Olympics -

snowboard big air.

0:27:120:27:14

Aimee Fuller is the only

Team GB representative

0:27:140:27:16

in a competition

stacked with quality.

0:27:160:27:17

This time last, week

American Jamie Anderson

0:27:170:27:19

defended her slopestyle Olympic

crown in very windy conditions.

0:27:190:27:21

And Austrian Anna Gasser became

the first woman to score a perfect

0:27:210:27:24

100 in competition last year..

0:27:240:27:25

The good news was that

the conditions were perfect

0:27:250:27:28

for the big tricks.

0:27:280:27:29

Jenny Jones was there

to see history made.

0:27:290:27:36

The ski jump has been wowing people

at the Olympics four years, but it's

0:27:370:27:42

time for a freestyle takeover.

0:27:420:27:49

time for a freestyle takeover. --

for years. For the first time ever,

0:27:490:27:52

big air is in the Olympics. Looking

at this jump, it's going to be epic.

0:27:520:28:01

They don't call it big air for

nothing. They drop in from 160 feet,

0:28:010:28:08

reaching speeds of 40 mph on the

in-run, and they are in the air for

0:28:080:28:12

two or three seconds. You have to do

your best trick, and you are judged

0:28:120:28:20

on how technical you are and how

well you execute. And of course, how

0:28:200:28:24

big you go.

Great Britain's Aimee

Fuller, one of the riders who

0:28:240:28:32

battled the conditions in

slopestyle. It'll be interesting to

0:28:320:28:35

see which direction she in. Coming

in switch, and she has the cab

0:28:350:28:42

double on the flip. She's going for

it, and she has stomped it. Just sat

0:28:420:28:48

back on the landing.

OK, Amy

Williams fell over, but it was just

0:28:480:28:54

her first run. She has a second

chance.

Julia Marino, silver

0:28:540:29:01

medallist at the X games two weeks

ago. -- Aimee Fuller fell over.

0:29:010:29:10

Under flip, coming switch. The cab,

double under flip. A bit more

0:29:100:29:16

rotation on it now.

LAUGHTER

Are you enjoying get?

It's

0:29:160:29:22

fantastic, a beautiful day.

Are you

enjoying the jumping itself, the

0:29:220:29:28

spectacle?

Absolutely, I wish I

could do stuff like this.

What does

0:29:280:29:34

this one think?

She's inspired,

loving it.

A future champion!

She is

0:29:340:29:40

the current leader of the women's

World Cup. She took first big air in

0:29:400:29:54

Cobra, paging and Milan. She has won

every competition she has entered.

0:29:540:30:01

Very tidy and very big. That is

first-place.

Having such a good

0:30:010:30:09

time, it's amazing. These girls are

fearless.

Absolutely fantastic,

0:30:090:30:13

we've never been anywhere like this

before.

What kind of trick would you

0:30:130:30:16

do?

I think I would do a double flip

and then a backflip.

Yes! Love it.

0:30:160:30:23

High five that.

The Canadian in

next. Laurie Blouin, a silver medal

0:30:230:30:31

in slopestyle.

0:30:310:30:33

As is so often the case, you find

people take a medal, then they find

0:30:380:30:43

their mojo. That could be the case

with Louise -- Laurie Blouin. Really

0:30:430:30:53

nice horizontal rotation, mixed with

the backflips there, so much more of

0:30:530:30:57

a corkscrew to that. ?

0:30:570:31:05

a corkscrew to that. ?

Incredible

venue, great atmosphere, the stages

0:31:060:31:08

set, go big or go home.

Next in,

Aimee Fuller of Great Britain. We

0:31:080:31:15

saw her try the cab double and

underflip on the first go. Well

0:31:150:31:27

spotted, she went up to her camp in

Mount Herzl, gone early, oh, and she

0:31:270:31:36

went so big on the first hit that

she tried to rotate a little bit

0:31:360:31:43

smaller on the second. That was a

big hit.

Totally came up to short,

0:31:430:31:49

Aimee Fuller, looks like she is all

right, though, getting back up. Two

0:31:490:31:54

crashes, a shame, she won't go

through to the final.

Next incoming

0:31:540:31:59

Yuki Fujimori, the

0:31:590:32:04

Yuki Fujimori, the 31-year-old, the

second oldest here. Winds up lovely,

0:32:060:32:12

backside 900. Very, very nice. This

is brilliant, we are starting to see

0:32:120:32:21

exactly what the women are capable

of, look how stoked she is as well.

0:32:210:32:29

Next in, Iwabuchi, the Japanese

rider. Drops in switch. So we are

0:32:290:32:38

not going to see a big trick that

she has been warming up. Switch 900.

0:32:380:32:45

Perfect landing. Absolutely stomps

it. The number one, Anna Gasser, is

0:32:450:32:53

in the start gate, currently in

sixth place. Can she reinstate

0:32:530:32:57

herself at the top of the standings?

Switch frontside double cork 1080,

0:32:570:33:07

that is the top spot!

Unfortunately,

Aimee Fuller Team GB was not able to

0:33:070:33:12

put down a run, but all the big

hitters through, this is going to an

0:33:120:33:20

amazing women's final. Aimee Fuller

posted this on social media, she

0:33:200:33:28

will not need any blusher for a

while!

What an incredible venue,

0:33:280:33:36

amazing atmosphere today, so awesome

for the girls to show their true

0:33:360:33:39

standard of snowboarding, compared

to the slopestyle which was ruined

0:33:390:33:45

by the wind. Aimee Fuller couldn't

land any of her runs, she doesn't go

0:33:450:33:49

through to the final. But Anna

Gasser, the Austrian, amazing

0:33:490:33:53

performance, she qualified in first

place. Hot on her tail is the young

0:33:530:34:01

Iwabuchi from Japan and

Sadowski-Synnott from New Zealand,

0:34:010:34:04

both landing great doubles, and they

have got more tricks in their bike.

0:34:040:34:08

This is going to be an epic final.

0:34:080:34:12

Rhona is back in the house

to pour over the latest moves

0:34:140:34:17

in the game of stones.

0:34:170:34:20

Gloves are off in the women's

ice hockey,

0:34:200:34:22

as the last four battle

for a place in the gold-medal game.

0:34:220:34:27

Halfway through the halfpipe,

0:34:270:34:29

and we'll hear Rowan Cheshire's

latest news.

0:34:290:34:37

Bahrami how to here today! -- balmy!

0:34:390:34:51

Squeaky bum time!

0:35:000:35:02

And we extend a very warm welcome

0:35:030:35:04

And we extend a very warm welcome

0:35:040:35:05

to 2002 Olympic curling

gold medallist Rhona Howie.

0:35:050:35:06

How many hours on the ice do you

reckon you spent in Salt Lake City?

0:35:060:35:13

If I asked you how many hours you

spend on the ice to win your medal,

0:35:130:35:18

would you know?

Roughly 40 hours,

nine round-robin games, two

0:35:180:35:22

play-offs, semifinal and final.

If

you had done big air, it is over in

0:35:220:35:28

ten seconds! Curling is day in, day

out, and every wind counts, as only

0:35:280:35:33

the top four will go into the

semifinals.

0:35:330:35:36

Paddy got an A in his maths GCSE,

so he's in charge of working out

0:35:360:35:39

how things stood at

the start of the day.

0:35:390:35:43

No medals in Pyeongchang will take

longer to win than those in curling.

0:35:430:35:48

So far, we have had five days with

56 matches, which I've seen 731

0:35:480:35:53

points scored, and we are only

halfway through the group stages.

0:35:530:35:58

Those stones move slowly. Strange

goings-on out on the women's ice,

0:35:580:36:04

Canada lost three from three.

Absolute shocker.

A nation reeled.

0:36:040:36:10

They are recovering now, ominously

for Eve Muirhead's team. Most of the

0:36:100:36:15

Sochi bound back to work on some new

material. They took

0:36:150:36:26

material. They took OAR for ten, but

it was difficult second album

0:36:260:36:29

territory for Eve

0:36:290:36:32

it was difficult second album

territory for Eve.

USA win the

0:36:320:36:34

match.

That loaded more pressure on

the match, China, who took it into

0:36:340:36:38

an extra ten is extra end.

We can

all breathe a huge sigh of relief.

0:36:380:36:43

They beat Denmark next and looked

well set, but they slipped against

0:36:430:36:49

career, coming up furiously short.

That is a big disappointment.

Tough

0:36:490:36:55

match against Sweden became even

tougher, two in the last, into a

0:36:550:37:00

decider, GB's final shot

all-important, but Eve's stone was

0:37:000:37:05

stopped by a red light. She had not

released before the hog line, a

0:37:050:37:11

curling no ball.

This is a real

disaster, I have not seen before,

0:37:110:37:16

especially when it falls to the last

stone of the extra end.

New brooms

0:37:160:37:21

representing Britain in the men's

competition, Kyle Smith's young crew

0:37:210:37:25

got an early dose of Olympic

pressure, a tie-breaker against

0:37:250:37:29

Switzerland, examination pass.

What

a win for Great Britain.

No greater

0:37:290:37:34

test than the next, Canada, the

curling superpower. Too much, too

0:37:340:37:40

soon for GB. Japan put them to the

end of the final end, right on cue

0:37:400:37:44

Kyle curled perfectly. Then the

stone turned again, Britain were

0:37:440:37:50

swept aside by the supreme Swedes.

Worst still, the calamity against

0:37:500:37:57

Korea, who had been without a win.

The Brits were shovelled into a

0:37:570:38:01

corner at the host' party. Crucial

that they beat Italy, crucial but an

0:38:010:38:06

out of sorts skip had to make this

shot.

Unbelievable draw.

What might

0:38:060:38:14

that stone be worth?

Something to build on certainly, but

0:38:140:38:19

they need to beat Denmark. The Danes

were ahead over the first five

0:38:190:38:23

events, not think Smith tried was

working. -- not thing.

Oh!

Just

0:38:230:38:32

peppered it.

It looked like everyone

was annoyed, no reason to be

0:38:320:38:38

annoyed, I don't want to see any

shaking heads, help each other.

0:38:380:38:41

Carefully chosen words from the

coach led to carefully placed

0:38:410:38:48

stones, and Britain took a crucial

two. The meant came with it, and in

0:38:480:38:53

the final end GB needed a double to

win. Skill the GE let the Danes

0:38:530:38:58

staking everything on the

spectacular, could they take out

0:38:580:39:02

two?

It was a great try. This will

be a huge win for Kyle Smith and his

0:39:020:39:07

team. Great Britain are getting

better and better as this

0:39:070:39:11

competition goes on.

Well done, both

of you, the reaction at the end

0:39:110:39:16

probably sums it up.

Yeah, a wee bit

of a struggle, but a lot of good

0:39:160:39:22

curling, two down at the fifth end

break, so we did all the good

0:39:220:39:26

curling to get back in the game,

pleased with the way we finished.

0:39:260:39:30

What a big win that was, GB up to

joint third with two to play. Eve

0:39:300:39:35

Muirhead has a rocky path to the

semis, Switzerland ranked above

0:39:350:39:39

them, the last shot of end one the

rink was like the idea, a mass of

0:39:390:39:44

Swiss stone, and yet somehow the

skip found a clearing.

That is a

0:39:440:39:50

cracking shot from Eve Muirhead, by

an inch!

These women knew that

0:39:500:39:54

defeat would all but eliminate them.

Desperation brought inspiration.

As

0:39:540:40:00

she got enough in this two spring it

out? She has. Goodness me!

Wonderful

0:40:000:40:05

shot!

And so it went to the final

stone of the final end, Eve's stone,

0:40:050:40:13

victory, defeat, sudden-death

decider all possible.

It is enough,

0:40:130:40:17

two in the tenth end means they have

beaten Switzerland, job done. Well

0:40:170:40:21

done, but you are not making this

easy!

No, that was a tough game, a

0:40:210:40:26

game of interest, both teams played

really well, a lot of good

0:40:260:40:31

shotmaking, and we knew that we have

to win every game going in now, so I

0:40:310:40:38

think we really did step up from

yesterday, and if we can keep this

0:40:380:40:42

going.

GB still joint fourth, still

in the race. It is all going to

0:40:420:40:46

their final two matches. But just

when slips matter most, the Brits

0:40:460:40:52

have found their grip on the ice.

Full credit to Eve Muirhead and her

0:40:520:40:56

rink, because yesterday there was

the real controversy, the hog line

0:40:560:41:02

making the headlines, we have got

one here, this stone doesn't slide,

0:41:020:41:06

but talk us through the

infringement.

When the player plays

0:41:060:41:11

the stone, they activate, this one

obviously doesn't have a light in

0:41:110:41:14

it, but there is a magnetic strip in

the hog line, is that picks up the

0:41:140:41:19

centre, so when the player cleans

the stone, that activates the light.

0:41:190:41:25

If the stone is faulty, red lights

will clash, the player would stop.

0:41:250:41:30

So it has obviously flashed green,

and when it reaches the hog line,

0:41:300:41:34

you are able to double touch the

handle, but it must be before the

0:41:340:41:38

line. So initially she released the

stone before the hog line, but then

0:41:380:41:44

her back finger, her finger touched

the back of it just as it was going

0:41:440:41:48

over the line.

And we can look at

that in slow motion and zoom right

0:41:480:41:54

into her hand, as you say, she let

go, releases... But then that double

0:41:540:41:59

tap.

04 finger just touched, that is

why the light flashes red. -- her

0:41:590:42:07

forefinger.

Very distressing and

upsetting, but you have got to move

0:42:070:42:11

on, and as we constantly see, you

have to pick yourself up, come back,

0:42:110:42:15

and they were pretty good today.

Really good attitude, mindset was

0:42:150:42:20

fantastic throughout the whole game,

you know, it was a must win game, so

0:42:200:42:24

the pressure was on them.

Absolutely, and Eve, in the final

0:42:240:42:30

end, was given an opening by

Switzerland, and she took it.

They

0:42:300:42:33

had the hammer on the last end, good

position, they needed a two, GB

0:42:330:42:39

played a fantastic end to set up

their two. The Swiss was about to

0:42:390:42:43

play a really good shot, but she

0:42:430:42:50

play a really good shot, but she was

one heavy, so that allowed Eve to

0:42:500:42:53

play her hit weight, just to split

it out and up and scored two.

So

0:42:530:42:58

they had built towards that really

well. What do you make of their

0:42:580:43:01

final matches? They have got Japan

and Canada to come, Canada started

0:43:010:43:06

poorly, but they are now building up

and starting to look strong.

0:43:060:43:12

Absolutely, the Canadian team, you

can never write them out, they have

0:43:120:43:16

found their form, they are fighting

back, they have got a chance of

0:43:160:43:22

reaching the semifinals, they will

be tough to beat. And Japan have had

0:43:220:43:24

a great Games, they are playing

well, so two very tough games for

0:43:240:43:28

Britain, but FAQ playing the way

they have, they could win.

They

0:43:280:43:35

could win, seriously?

Against Japan

and Canada! Just to get to the

0:43:350:43:41

quarterfinals!

Now the men have been

looking really confident, they have

0:43:410:43:47

moved up to third place in their

table, what did you make of them

0:43:470:43:50

against Denmark?

Again, really

strong performance from the boys,

0:43:500:43:54

the team dynamics was great, the

harmony was good, they fought a

0:43:540:44:00

tough game, Denmark played really

well, but the British boys, you

0:44:000:44:04

know, they put themselves in a good

position, the same as Eve, they

0:44:040:44:07

needed a two to win with a hammer,

an open draw to win, what more can a

0:44:070:44:12

skip ask for? So you know the guys

are playing well, fighting hard,

0:44:120:44:16

they look good at there.

We are

getting to the sharp end of the

0:44:160:44:20

women's ice hockey competition. It

is semifinal time, so the park

0:44:200:44:28

doesn't quite stop here. Here is

Seth Bennett.

0:44:280:44:35

The scars of Sochi remain in US

minds, and it has been an agonising

0:44:350:44:40

four-year wait for the team to

avenge that matter class.

The

0:44:400:44:44

memories of Sochi will always be

there, so heartbreaking that we

0:44:440:44:51

lost.

Motivated to go one better

this time around, USA posted their

0:44:510:44:55

best performance of the campaign.

Shia a chance, wonderful finish!

0:44:550:45:03

Beating Finland 5- 02 reach the gold

medal game. -- beating Finland 5-0

0:45:030:45:14

to reach the gold medal game. USA

look at the top of their game.

0:45:140:45:22

Canada extended their Olympic

winning streak to a staggering 24

0:45:220:45:25

matches.

0:45:250:45:31

matches. A date with destiny. The

USA men lost two of their three

0:45:310:45:40

group games and must now beat

Slovakia in the opening game on

0:45:400:45:45

Tuesday if they are to reach the

quarterfinals. The hosts have

0:45:450:45:49

provided plenty of entertainment and

a number of historic moments along

0:45:490:45:53

the way.

Good chance of a goal.

They've done it! Korea have scored

0:45:530:46:01

their first ever goal in an Olympic

ice hockey tournament.

As once

0:46:010:46:07

again, sport has transcended

politics. STUDIO: On Thursday we

0:46:070:46:12

will see the women's final, USA

against Canada.

0:46:120:46:17

Freestyle skiing next,

0:46:170:46:18

and after Izzy Atkin's fantastic

bronze medal in the slopestyle,

0:46:180:46:20

it fell to Rowan Cheshire to see

what she could do on the halfpipe.

0:46:200:46:24

But first she has to qualify

for the final,

0:46:240:46:26

Tim Warwood picks up

the story.

0:46:260:46:29

Rowan Cheshire is Britain's premier

ladies half pipe skier and arrives

0:46:320:46:35

at these games injury free and with

form on her side. Four years ago,

0:46:350:46:42

aged 18, Cheshire was knocked

unconscious and suffered severe

0:46:420:46:45

concussion while training in Sochi.

It forced her to withdraw from the

0:46:450:46:50

2014 Winter Olympics, and this was

the first of three head injuries for

0:46:500:46:54

her within a year and a half. She

fought her way back from those

0:46:540:46:59

physical and psychological traumas

and wants a place on the podium.

0:46:590:47:04

First she has to face a tough field

in qualification where only the top

0:47:040:47:08

12 skiers will progress to the

final.

0:47:080:47:16

First was World Cup leader Brita

Sigourney of the USA, an impressive

0:47:160:47:20

run saw her put down a score of

90.6. Canada's Cassie Sharpe would

0:47:200:47:24

be the one to beat. This standout

run took her into the lead on 93

0:47:240:47:29

points. Sochi silver medallist Marie

Martinod scored 91.6 in her first

0:47:290:47:35

run, leaving the French skier in

second. Could Rowan Cheshire produce

0:47:350:47:39

a run worthy of a place in the

final? COMMENTATOR:

A big 540.

0:47:390:47:50

final? COMMENTATOR:

A big 540. The

Alley oop is almost her signature

0:47:540:47:56

trick. 900, holding on. Straight

air. Skiing really nicely here after

0:47:560:48:07

that 720. Switch, 360. That was nice

to finish.

A good run.

A very good

0:48:070:48:15

run. The amplitude was good and

consistent. Good grabs, solid run

0:48:150:48:22

from Rowan Cheshire. I would hope

that would be enough.

Ninth

0:48:220:48:27

position, there we go. Well done.

0:48:270:48:33

Brita Sigourney, second place in the

games at Aspen a couple of weeks

0:48:380:48:44

ago.

Big straight air. A huge alley

oop. Carrying her speed well for the

0:48:440:48:51

900, a massive 900.

It was huge.

Straight air, just missing the

0:48:510:48:58

ground a little bit. Left 540 with

the mute grab. 720 to finish and a

0:48:580:49:07

really good run from Brita

Sigourney.

90.6 on the first. Let's

0:49:070:49:11

see what the judges do with this.

Exactly the same. So, Cassie Sharpe

0:49:110:49:20

at the top.

Does she cruise or does

she go for it?

Definitely can't see

0:49:200:49:25

her being bumped out.

No. Big 900.

Really smooth. Right side 900 and

0:49:250:49:34

back to back nines. Didn't see that

in the first run. The flare. Switch

0:49:340:49:43

three. Big straight air. And what

does she have to finish? Left ten.

0:49:430:49:54

Yes.

Beautiful. She is light years

ahead of everyone else. My goodness,

0:49:540:50:03

she's almost got the keys to the

safe that contains gold medals. A

0:50:030:50:10

big improvement of .40. The

defending silver medallist from

0:50:100:50:20

Sochi finds herself in the

qualifying silver position, second

0:50:200:50:23

place at the moment means nothing

until the finals. But skiing very

0:50:230:50:27

well and very confident, the French

Gill, Marie Martinod.

Left 540.

0:50:270:50:34

Coming in with a lot of speed. Right

side 540. Very good. Left 900. Right

0:50:340:50:45

side flare. Just sitting on her

table is a little bit there.

Marie

0:50:450:50:51

Martinod also up in her run a little

bit, stretching her legs.

Simetu

0:50:510:51:01

Annalisa Drew, she doesn't really

have a switch hit in there, so maybe

0:51:010:51:05

she could pull that out for the

finals. It's an improvement.

Rowan

0:51:050:51:12

Cheshire in ninth position. It would

be nice to improve here.

Nice 540

0:51:120:51:21

from Rowan Cheshire. A big alley

oop. So smooth on that. 900, solid.

0:51:210:51:32

Right five. Losing amplitude

slightly but holding on. Left seven.

0:51:320:51:39

Switch three. Straight air.

She has

done really well, she had a really

0:51:390:51:48

nasty ankle injury. She's just about

skiing back to full speed right now.

0:51:480:51:54

Yeah, she had a tough summer, and a

lot of rehab and a lot of work went

0:51:540:51:59

to getting her back on the skis. A

great start to the season.

It's not

0:51:590:52:03

an improvement on the second runner.

I think it was her amplitude

0:52:030:52:06

slightly. The results is looking

like this, Cassie Sharpe light years

0:52:060:52:11

ahead. Marie Martinod of Brown 's.

Maddie Bowman, the defending Olympic

0:52:110:52:18

champion, is down there in sixth.

Rowan Cheshire qualifies in a very

0:52:180:52:24

respectable ninth position.

What did

it mean for you to go out there,

0:52:240:52:27

given we know what happened four

years ago?

It means the absolute

0:52:270:52:31

world to me. Four years ago I

couldn't show anyone what I could do

0:52:310:52:35

and I heard myself quite badly. I

have had a whirlwind four years with

0:52:350:52:39

injuries with my head and ankle. I

haven't skied as much as I would

0:52:390:52:44

like to. To come out here

0:52:440:52:50

like to. To come out here today and

put down the run that I did, even

0:52:530:52:55

though it was a bit scrappy, I'm so

proud and happy to land and get to

0:52:550:52:58

the finals, because that was the

goal.

Unfortunately Molly Summerhays

0:52:580:53:00

failed to qualify.

0:53:000:53:02

Here's Paddy Gearey with a round up

of what else has been happening.

0:53:020:53:05

The 500 metres is the shortest speed

skating distance and the men's gold

0:53:080:53:12

medal was settled by the tiniest of

margins. Norwegian Havard Lorentzen

0:53:120:53:19

won by 100th of a second, yet

another gold medal for Norway, and

0:53:190:53:23

they hadn't won one in this event

for 70 years. This games will be the

0:53:230:53:26

last we see of Lindsey Vonn at an

Olympics, one of the greatest female

0:53:260:53:30

downhill skiers of all time, showing

form in practice for the downhill

0:53:300:53:34

event, going third fastest, but she

will not be racing fellow American

0:53:340:53:38

Mikaela Shiffrin, she was hoping to

go in the downhill as well but

0:53:380:53:42

expected bad weather has brought the

Alpine combined event forward, and

0:53:420:53:49

she has decided to concentrate on

that. Shiffrin had hoped to win four

0:53:490:53:51

goals in Pyeongchang but is aiming

for two. Her boyfriend, the French

0:53:510:53:56

skier, has been sent home for

lacking team spirit. After finishing

0:53:560:54:00

seventh in the men's giant slalom,

he said he didn't care about the

0:54:000:54:03

upcoming team event he was supposed

to be racing in. He's apologised for

0:54:030:54:08

his comments. Alexander

Krushelnitskiy, a Russian curler who

0:54:080:54:10

won a bronze medal in the mixed

doubles, is being investigated on

0:54:100:54:15

suspicion of testing positive for a

banned substance. He was competing

0:54:150:54:21

for the Olympic Athletes from

Russia, a group of athletes who

0:54:210:54:24

could compete if they prove

themselves clean. We're still

0:54:240:54:27

waiting for his second results.

STUDIO: If those second results come

0:54:270:54:33

back and it is positive as well, we

are back where we were. And they are

0:54:330:54:37

meant to be clean with the OAR.

As

an athlete it consumes your brain

0:54:370:54:41

and thoughts every single day. We

sign up in Great Britain to a whole

0:54:410:54:48

drugs whereabouts system, you have

to give an hour every single day

0:54:480:54:53

where you knew you would be, I used

to give 6am, when you would be

0:54:530:54:58

asleep and you knew you would need

the toilet when you walk up. You

0:54:580:55:01

would be obsessed about anything you

put in your mouth, you would take

0:55:010:55:05

nothing from the counter. Even in

the skeleton run, I wouldn't drink

0:55:050:55:09

from the same water bottle as

somebody else because you would find

0:55:090:55:13

a capped and fresh bottle because

you are paranoid about being spiked.

0:55:130:55:18

They are saying that he is a bright

boy and he wouldn't do this, but

0:55:180:55:22

what drug would you take to help

with curling?

Absolutely. It's

0:55:220:55:26

disappointed because the world

curling Association has spent money

0:55:260:55:29

in the last little while to make

sure all Russian athletes competing

0:55:290:55:32

on the ice were clean. They have

done extra drug testing on all the

0:55:320:55:36

Russian athletes. And the last test

he did, he was clean.

It is a

0:55:360:55:42

mystery.

We will get the second

sample and that will be the

0:55:420:55:46

tell-tale.

0:55:460:55:48

Norway are on course for their most

successful ever Winter Olympics -

0:55:480:55:51

gold in the team ski jumping

and one in speed skating.

0:55:510:55:54

They're struggling to break clear

of Germany, however, after that dead

0:55:540:55:56

heat for gold in the two-man bob.

0:55:560:55:58

We're still in 16th spot.

0:55:580:55:59

Let's go off-piste.

0:55:590:56:05

Look for the bear necessities

in these pictures!

0:56:080:56:11

Here's Little Long ice skating

with his partner Twizzles,

0:56:110:56:13

dancing to the "Bear-lero"!

0:56:130:56:15

And Molly is practising

for the two-man bob

0:56:150:56:17

with her driver, Teddy!

0:56:170:56:20

Here's a dogsled team, although he

bears a resemblance to Paddington!

0:56:200:56:27

I

bears a resemblance to Paddington!

0:56:270:56:27

I watched

0:56:270:56:28

I watched that

0:56:280:56:28

I watched that movie

0:56:280:56:28

I watched that movie on

0:56:280:56:29

I watched that movie on the

0:56:290:56:29

I watched that movie on the way

0:56:290:56:29

I watched that movie on the way

over. It was brilliant.

0:56:290:56:32

This young girl has been

inspired by Izzy Atkin,

0:56:320:56:34

and is in training for ski

slopestyle at the next Winters.

0:56:340:56:42

She should get the medal for most

original use of props!

0:56:440:56:47

First up it's the women's halfpipe,

Elizabeth Marian Swaney,

0:56:520:56:54

of Hungary via the USA,

is a massive fan of The Eagles.

0:56:540:56:57

She's "taking it easy"

maybe a bit too easy.

0:56:570:56:59

She could at least have tried.

0:56:590:57:01

But once you start losing speed, you

really struggle. She looks scared

0:57:010:57:04

stiff.

0:57:040:57:08

Sticking with the halfpipe,

now this is a handshake

0:57:080:57:11

to end all handshakes,

so well synchronised,

0:57:110:57:13

nice work Jang Yujin of Korea.

0:57:130:57:18

They have worked really hard on

that.

0:57:180:57:23

Ok, ready, on your marks, get set.

0:57:230:57:24

No!

0:57:240:57:30

Oh no! It's like he stubbed his toe.

Nobody likes being a substitute,

0:57:300:57:38

especially when you're on coach does

the bunny ears.

He is not amused.

0:57:380:57:50

Tomorrow we have the women's

bobsleigh, and we hope at ten

0:57:500:57:54

o'clock, Elise Christie in the heats

of the 1000 metres. You have been

0:57:540:57:57

talking to her and trying to

encourage her.

I have been reminding

0:57:570:58:02

her about how she said she loves the

lights and it gives her energy.

It's

0:58:020:58:05

time for her luck to change. We will

see you tomorrow, good night.

0:58:050:58:11

They've gone down!

Again, turmoil

for Christie.

I can't believe it,

0:58:210:58:28

Christie has been penalised again.

Elise Christie does get the chance

0:58:280:58:34

to race for gold.

A nation holds its

breath.

Christie tries to make it on

0:58:340:58:42

the inside. Christie crashes out,

she's out of it once again!

Elise

0:58:420:58:47

Christie to get into the Olympic

final. Christie has crashed again on

0:58:470:58:55

the final bend. Yet again, she ends

up in a distraught heap on the

0:58:550:58:59

floor.

0:58:590:59:02

Clare Balding presents highlights of the day's action from the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The two-man bobsleigh medals are decided while the men's ski jumping teams are battling it out to see who will be kings of the large hill. There is also a gold medal at stake in the 500m speedskating. And there is a chance to see what happened in the qualifying for the women's big air snowboard, which is making its Olympic debut.
