Previously at the Winter Olympics...

Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland are

0:00:090:00:15

back and Olympic ice.

For the first

time in 20 years, we have a dead

0:00:150:00:22

heat! Norway are your team's Olympic

champions.

I'm so, so proud and so

0:00:220:00:30

happy. Getting titles, that was the

goal.

Day 11.

0:00:300:00:43

Good evening and welcome to Today At

The Games.

0:01:040:01:12

So far we've had glory,

we've had history, we've had

0:01:120:01:14

underdogs rising and plucky losers,

we've had injuries,

0:01:140:01:16

disqualifications and wardrobe

malfunctions, but hold on tight,

0:01:160:01:18

because this is the most

intense day yet.

0:01:180:01:20

Here's what's coming

up over the next hour.

0:01:200:01:24

She's been knocked down,

but she gets up again.

0:01:240:01:29

All eyes on Elise.

0:01:300:01:39

Mica and Mica try to do a job,

in the bob.

0:01:390:01:41

No time to slip in the curling...

0:01:410:01:43

The semis are in sight

for both British teams.

0:01:430:01:45

After exposing more than they wanted

to in the short programme,

0:01:450:01:52

could the contenders

keep their kit on?

0:01:520:01:54

And then full speed

into the halfpipe -

0:01:540:01:55

can Rowan Cheshire do the trick?

0:01:550:02:00

There is an awful lot to discuss, in

the company of...

0:02:000:02:03

2010 gold medallist

in the skeleton, Amy Williams.

0:02:030:02:08

Fresh back from Pyeongchang. Just

about over the jet lag? Better than

0:02:080:02:11

yesterday?

I think I feel worse

today than I did yesterday.

0:02:110:02:15

Three-time Olympian Sarah Lindsay,

and three-time Olympian

0:02:150:02:17

and flag bearer in Sochi,

Jon Eley.

0:02:170:02:20

Both experts in short track speed

skating and that is where we start.

0:02:200:02:25

World champion Elise Christie has

just one last chance of a medal.

0:02:250:02:32

Distraught by three

failures four years ago,

0:02:320:02:34

she nearly gave up the sport.

0:02:340:02:35

Then in Pyongchang she crashed out

in the 500 and the 1500,

0:02:350:02:38

leaving her hurt and hobbling.

0:02:380:02:41

So the first challenge today was to

make it to the start line for the

0:02:410:02:44

hits of the 1000 metres.

0:02:440:02:46

David McDaid's been

at the Gangneung Ice Arena...

0:02:460:02:52

Elise Christie came to Pyeongchang

as the overall short track world

0:02:540:02:59

champion and with high hopes of an

Olympic medal. After her triple

0:02:590:03:03

disappointment in Sochi four years

ago, it looked like that success

0:03:030:03:06

might come in her first event, the

500 metres.

0:03:060:03:09

might come in her first event, the

500 metres.

Christie tries to make

0:03:090:03:11

it on the inside... Christie is out

once again!

I know it's short track

0:03:110:03:22

and I know I'm supposed to be

prepared for this but it still

0:03:220:03:25

hurts, you know.

Once again,

heartbreak in the final and sadly

0:03:250:03:30

the 1500 metres would be even worse.

Christie in third place. They come

0:03:300:03:37

round the final bend... And Christie

has crashed again now in the

0:03:370:03:42

semifinal.

Fortunately, no bones were broken

0:03:420:03:48

but her right ankle still isn't

100%. Elise's injury has improved

0:03:480:03:52

enough to allow her to return to

training in the last 48 hours.

She

0:03:520:03:57

is strong. She is able to do the

majority of the things we would be

0:03:570:04:01

looking for in the 1000 metres. I'd

say she's probably going to take to

0:04:010:04:06

the ice around 80-90% fitness.

Elise

has received thousands of messages

0:04:060:04:11

of support from members of the

public as well as some of her heroes

0:04:110:04:15

like Dame Kelly Holmes and Jess NFL.

And if she is fit it could provide

0:04:150:04:22

the boost she needs to get that

elusive Olympic medal.

Hi everyone,

0:04:220:04:27

I'm just about to go down to try and

compete today. I skated this morning

0:04:270:04:33

for like the first time and it went

quite well, considering. I'm going

0:04:330:04:37

to see if I can get out there to

race today. I'd like to thank

0:04:370:04:40

everyone who helped me get to this

point and everyone from the sport

0:04:400:04:44

back home.

0:04:440:04:46

COMMENTATOR: Here we go, the

athletes taking to the ice for the

0:04:500:04:54

heats of the women's 1000 metres.

Elise Christie, clearly not fully

0:04:540:05:01

fit, with that ankle damage picked

up in a crash of the semifinals in

0:05:010:05:06

the 1500 metres the other day. The

way they go. Christie goes down

0:05:060:05:12

before they reach the very first

corner. And her race was over before

0:05:120:05:17

it even started. And she is still on

the ground as the race continues.

0:05:170:05:27

Van Ruijven skates around on the

officials go across to check on her.

0:05:270:05:32

The other athletes are coming to a

halt and I think we will be

0:05:320:05:37

restarting the race.

There's no

words for it really. You can see,

0:05:370:05:42

she clips the back of the parade of

Keszler as she goes into that bend.

0:05:420:05:48

She's going to go again. Elise

Christie is not finished. Away they

0:05:480:05:52

go. Christie at the back of the

field, but at least she has avoided

0:05:520:05:59

any trouble and now she can get up

to speed. I think the start was

0:05:590:06:02

going to be the hardest part for

her.

Absolutely, deeply after the

0:06:020:06:06

fall. She can't really put any

pressure on it so now it's a

0:06:060:06:10

question of, it's nine laps, skaters

won an two will go through and we

0:06:100:06:15

are hoping and praying for Elise

Christie to qualify here.

6.5 laps

0:06:150:06:20

to go, van Ruijven from the

Netherlands at the front, Keszler in

0:06:200:06:25

second place and Warakomska in

third. Elise Christie shouldn't have

0:06:250:06:29

a problem getting through from this

heat. The draw has been pretty kind

0:06:290:06:34

to her, relatively speaking. But,

can she get up to full speed and

0:06:340:06:39

find a way through? To finish in the

first two here?

The last lap time

0:06:390:06:46

9.75, as Christine moves through

into third place. One an two to

0:06:460:06:49

qualify.

Christie ready to make a

challenge with three laps to go. Van

0:06:490:06:55

Ruijven, Christie has a look on the

inside and just about manages to

0:06:550:06:59

stay on her feet. Christie seems a

little gap, forced out wide again,

0:06:590:07:04

in third place. Van Ruijven then

takes a man with two laps to go.

0:07:040:07:08

Christie almost goes into the back

of Warakomska. Just balls on her way

0:07:080:07:13

into second place. Quite a battle

between Warakomska and Christie. Van

0:07:130:07:19

Ruijven leads round with half a lap

to go. Christie is in position to

0:07:190:07:23

qualify here. Van Ruijven first over

the line, Christie second,

0:07:230:07:28

Warakomska third and Keszler fourth.

The race was completed and she

0:07:280:07:33

picked herself up off the ice,

literally, to have a second go and

0:07:330:07:38

this time she manages to get the job

done. She is through the heat and

0:07:380:07:43

Elise Christie, the world champion

is still in the women's 1000 metres.

0:07:430:07:47

But look at that, as she limps away

from the start, certainly doing this

0:07:470:07:52

the hard way.

She certainly is. She

squeezed through there. Wouldn't be

0:07:520:07:58

surprised if Keszler probably gets a

penalty here. She was the

0:07:580:08:10

skater on the outside of Christie.

Christie almost going down again

0:08:140:08:16

there. Managed to stay up and the

referees are looking at the video

0:08:160:08:19

replay. If someone is coming up the

inside, your not allowed to change

0:08:190:08:22

lanes to block the skater coming up

the inside stub yellow card for

0:08:220:08:24

Elise Christie. That is amazing. It

puts the tin hat on her Olympic

0:08:240:08:27

Games. Hard to think how it could

have gone any worse but it just has.

0:08:270:08:30

Elise Christie is out of the Olympic

Games. She finished the race in

0:08:300:08:34

second place, came over the line in

a qualifying position. She has been

0:08:340:08:38

given a yellow card. That means she

has been thrown out of the

0:08:380:08:42

competition.

A few days ago I didn't

think I would be getting on the ice.

0:08:420:08:45

I did everything to turn it around,

I had ligament damage of my ankle

0:08:450:08:49

and obviously it just wasn't meant

to be.

I think everyone watching

0:08:490:08:53

will think you have a hell of a lot

of darts.

Yeah, thanks. I don't

0:08:530:08:58

know... -- a lot of guts. I want to

get short track out there, it's such

0:08:580:09:07

an amazing sport. At times it does

this to you... I can put my hands up

0:09:070:09:11

now and say I've no idea why I got a

yellow card. When I watched the

0:09:110:09:15

race, I was kicked at the start.

I've never had a yellow card in my

0:09:150:09:23

life. I went up the inside and on

the video I ran past the girls so I

0:09:230:09:28

have no idea.

How do you sum up

these games? Fair to say it has not

0:09:280:09:33

gone very well?

LAUGHTER

Right now I am a bit shell-shocked.

0:09:330:09:37

I worked so hard to come back from

this injury. I can promise Britain I

0:09:370:09:41

will fight back from this and I will

come back for Beijing. And hopefully

0:09:410:09:47

I can do Britain proud then.

Full

marks for bravery. Elise

0:09:470:09:54

Christie committing to another

Olympic programming four years'

0:09:540:09:56

time.

0:09:560:09:57

Olympic programming four years'

time. Let's analyse what went wrong.

0:09:570:09:59

You know her well, how will close

was she to pulling out?

I think they

0:09:590:10:04

prepared as normal. They would have

taken each moment at a time, each

0:10:040:10:08

day at a time, to see if they could

get her back on the ice. I don't

0:10:080:10:12

think they made a decision until

very late.

It was fairly evident if

0:10:120:10:15

we look at her first start on her

push off, she hampered here already

0:10:150:10:22

by lack of power or is this an

accident?

I think it was a little

0:10:220:10:26

bit of an accident. I think she was

aggressive of the start trying get

0:10:260:10:30

to the front. They want to be

dominant and make it as clean as

0:10:300:10:36

possible. She tried to get as far

forward as possible and there may be

0:10:360:10:40

relaxed a bit too early and then a

clash of skates, it happens when you

0:10:400:10:44

have your long blades on and

everyone is trying to get into the

0:10:440:10:46

lead position. It is just

unfortunate. The most important

0:10:460:10:49

thing, we saw she had a second

chance.

Given a yellow car because

0:10:490:10:58

there were two incidents in the race

and she was adjudged to have fouled

0:10:580:11:02

in both incidents.

0:11:020:11:03

and she was adjudged to have fouled

in both incidents. This adverse

0:11:030:11:04

incident, what is happening?

She

made the overtake past Keszler and

0:11:040:11:09

got alongside her. There you would

say maybe that is over and take down

0:11:090:11:13

but Keszler has come back and try to

block her. The referee has deemed

0:11:130:11:16

Elise wasn't clean past.

Do you both

think it was a fair decision?

I

0:11:160:11:24

don't. I think she had passed. And

you should consider the athlete's

0:11:240:11:31

intention and Elise is trying to

move up in the race make an overtake

0:11:310:11:34

and Keszler was trying to make a

crash.

Would you think? That is the

0:11:340:11:39

rules are very 50-50. What we say in

our sport is let's not leave

0:11:390:11:43

rules are very 50-50. What we say in

our sport is let's not leave

0:11:430:11:44

ourselves in the referee's hands but

make it as clean as possible. She

0:11:440:11:46

got herself in trouble but we wait

like to think maybe it could have

0:11:460:11:50

been different.

Let's look at the

second incident. If this hadn't

0:11:500:11:55

happened, she would have been all

right

0:11:550:11:56

happened, she would have been all

right and qualified in second place.

0:11:560:11:58

What does she do wrong and is it

clear it is her fault?

I think she

0:11:580:12:02

tried to block. She made a really

good overtake and got herself into

0:12:020:12:07

second but then couldn't hold her

strap coming out the corn and tried

0:12:070:12:11

too hard to shut the trap down. She

got alongside the skater and pushed

0:12:110:12:15

again, almost like she's blocked but

she finishes the push with her leg

0:12:150:12:19

and arm at the same time.

I realise

she didn't have the power or the

0:12:190:12:23

fitness to get to the front

straightaway but Sarah, in

0:12:230:12:26

fitness to get to the front

straightaway but Sarah, in your

0:12:260:12:26

opinion, could she have and should

she have swung round the outside and

0:12:260:12:30

would that have been harder or

easier?

That last incident... One

0:12:300:12:36

lap to go, so she has to try and

defend. She didn't have enough time

0:12:360:12:40

to make another overtake. So you are

in the Olympic Games, the bell rings

0:12:400:12:45

and you have one lap to go. You are

in qualifying position as an address

0:12:450:12:48

to come up the inside, you will

defend your line.

When we talk about

0:12:480:12:53

the injury, I think with her right

ankle injury, and that turned

0:12:530:12:57

through the corner she would

struggle to hold that overtake and

0:12:570:13:01

come out tight again. That may be

led to where she has spent

0:13:010:13:03

struggled.

How much further we do

have to go if you are taking on the

0:13:030:13:09

outside, how many metres do have to

travel?

Probably up to 15 metres

0:13:090:13:15

more on the outside and that is why

she's and is confident and does on

0:13:150:13:19

the longer route she is trying to

take the inside for the overtake.

0:13:190:13:24

Sofa six Olympic races, she has been

disqualified in four and only

0:13:240:13:28

finished one, which was fourth in

the 500 metres. It just doesn't

0:13:280:13:33

reflect the class of state Elise

Christie is that extraordinary she

0:13:330:13:37

is already committed to in four

years' time.

0:13:370:13:40

Plenty more action from the short

track to keep you up-to-date with.

0:13:400:13:43

Elise's boyfriend Liu Shaolin Sandor

is looking to become Hungary's first

0:13:430:13:46

Winter Olympic medallist for 38

years - he's going in the heats

0:13:460:13:48

of mens 500m and we've got an insane

women's 3000m relay final.

0:13:480:13:53

Paddy's navigating this with help

from commentator Simon Brotherton.

0:13:530:13:56

As we know all too well, short track

speed skating is bought on the edge.

0:14:000:14:06

Peril and penalties everywhere. You

are not even safe when you are over

0:14:060:14:09

the line. The sport's risks would be

all too clear that Elise Christie's

0:14:090:14:15

Shaolin Sandor Liu boyfriend,. The

question out of the 1000 meteors at

0:14:150:14:19

the weekend.

The first two over the

line, Shaolin Sandor Liu and Han

0:14:190:14:30

Tianyu.

The world champion is out,

difficult to make forecasts in this

0:14:300:14:34

event but the Koreans look strong.

They all made it through the madness

0:14:340:14:42

and have World Cup medals this

season but will have to go some to

0:14:420:14:48

beat Han Tianyu. He is the former

skater, as he showed in his heat.

0:14:480:14:52

Olympic record time!

Short track is

frantic enough in individual events

0:14:520:15:01

but what about the relay? This is

the women's, the B final, the best

0:15:010:15:05

of the rest. The Dutch were taking

it seriously.

The Dutch take it!

0:15:050:15:11

Chased all the way down the back

straight. She will bring it home for

0:15:110:15:15

the Netherlands who take the final.

They lied from start to finish. It

0:15:150:15:20

is not just an Olympic record but a

new world record time for the

0:15:200:15:25

Netherlands. -- they led from the

start to the finish. All the more

0:15:250:15:29

frustrating for them they were in

the B final to achieve such a

0:15:290:15:33

performance.

But this is skied

skating, you never know. Over to the

0:15:330:15:38

a final, South Korea, China, Italy

and Canada. Four laps to go and

0:15:380:15:43

almost inevitably, a crash.

Four

laps to go, the Italians are on the

0:15:430:15:49

ground as well.

It left Korea and

China racing for gold.

It is really

0:15:490:15:56

close, China's over the line, Korea

take the gold.

In this book, the

0:15:560:16:06

drama doesn't end there, wait for

the judges, it's time for penalties.

0:16:060:16:12

Two penalties... And China have been

penalised, Korea win and Italy get

0:16:120:16:18

the silver. So the Dutch get a medal

for their world-record efforts, even

0:16:180:16:22

though they didn't even make the

final. No wonder they can't believe

0:16:220:16:25

it, they weren't even on the ice.

0:16:250:16:31

And in a Dutch team, Jorien ter Mors

created history of her own.

Yes,

0:16:320:16:36

winning in short and long at the

same Games, that is impressive!

0:16:360:16:41

There has been talk of Elise

Christie switching to a long track,

0:16:410:16:44

or indeed cycling, any of those an

option?

She will want to stay

0:16:440:16:49

involved in the sport whatever it

is, fingers crossed she stays in

0:16:490:16:52

short track.

Charlotte Gilmartin and

Kat Thompson did not qualify, no

0:16:520:16:59

British short track speed skaters

left.

It is a sad day for them all

0:16:590:17:03

to go out, the girls will be gutted,

they gave their best effort but it

0:17:030:17:08

wasn't enough, so disappointing for

them, and Olympic Games under their

0:17:080:17:15

belt.

And the trick is to keep

going, even when things go wrong,

0:17:150:17:19

because Fontana became the most

successful short track speed skater

0:17:190:17:23

ever. Also looking for medals on

ice, these two.

I broke my kneecap,

0:17:230:17:30

smashed it into eight pieces. They

said it was a career ending injury.

0:17:300:17:35

I run the crying not from the pain

but from what could be. -- I

0:17:350:17:40

remember.

The comeback kids!

It is a

special feeling that you get at the

0:17:400:17:47

Olympic Games. It is not worth

coming back if we are not

0:17:470:17:54

competitive with everybody else.

This is for all the people that

0:17:540:17:57

thought I couldn't do this.

They go

in the final of the ice dance,

0:17:570:18:04

highlights of that in quarter of an

hour, but before that another

0:18:040:18:08

dynamic duo, this is a tale of the

underdogs trying to bite back, Mica

0:18:080:18:14

McNeill and Mica Moore have had to

fight to get to the Olympics, not

0:18:140:18:17

only with their competitors but

their own federation, they are the

0:18:170:18:23

team powered by the people.

0:18:230:18:28

All of the hardy is that you have

worked, thinking this is the Olympic

0:18:280:18:32

year,, you want to go into it in the

best shape possible, then it is

0:18:320:18:37

stopped. It was heartbreaking.

0:18:370:18:43

stopped. It was heartbreaking.

BBC

Sport understand that British

0:18:430:18:45

bobsleigh will withdraw funding from

its women's team just before the

0:18:450:18:50

Winter Olympics. Mica McNeill says

she is gutted to find that there was

0:18:500:18:55

no money left to punto team because

of an overspend. -- to fund her

0:18:550:19:02

team.

Was my career low, as low as

you can get, you have worked hard,

0:19:020:19:07

and it is crushed, and you don't

know if you can turn around from

0:19:070:19:12

that.

We instantly came together

with a plan that we could move

0:19:120:19:20

forward swiftly, because the season

was coming around very quickly, and

0:19:200:19:24

we did that very well.

0:19:240:19:31

we did that very well.

I honestly

didn't know if it was going to work,

0:19:310:19:34

I thought we might get a terrible

response, like you might get a lot

0:19:340:19:37

of criticism for setting this up,

but set it up, and it started

0:19:370:19:42

rolling.

0:19:420:19:47

rolling.

So people were willing to

support us, it is amazing. We want

0:19:470:19:51

to say thank you for all the

contributions, we are so grateful.

0:19:510:19:56

We are so excited for the rest of

the season.

Maybe most of you

0:19:560:20:00

watching at home right now send a

few quid on their way, nearly 50,000

0:20:000:20:04

was raised to enable them to be

here.

0:20:040:20:06

Let's see the British girls on their

way.

This is a good run.

Clean out

0:20:100:20:17

of 15, I may maybe an 15th place,

they go sixth, what a good run that

0:20:170:20:25

was from Mica and Mica!

She is

starting to become a really good

0:20:250:20:28

pilot, they just need to find a bit

more horsepower at the top, find

0:20:280:20:32

that start, that is all they are

missing, but this is the reason she

0:20:320:20:36

has been flying, because she has

nailed this trait every time she is

0:20:360:20:40

coming through it.

History made on

the ice with the first African and

0:20:400:20:46

Nigerian bobsleigh team. Their debut

appearance showed the inexperience

0:20:460:20:54

of the pilot, but the fans were

enthusiastic none the less, and the

0:20:540:20:58

duo were thrilled to be here,

despite finishing last after heat

0:20:580:21:02

one. 30 years after Cool Runnings

and in the first-ever Jamaican

0:21:020:21:06

bobsleigh, they put the internal

wranglings of the last few days to

0:21:060:21:12

one side. A slip of the handle at

the start and little mistakes on

0:21:120:21:18

route saw them off the pace, and

with no coach to fine tune their

0:21:180:21:24

run, and improvement seems unlikely.

Kaillie Humphries is chasing a third

0:21:240:21:28

consecutive gold medal and set the

early lead with a time of 50.72, not

0:21:280:21:33

one of her finest runs, especially

with the Americans and Germans hard

0:21:330:21:38

on her heels. Elana Meyers Taylor

from the United States, who was won

0:21:380:21:42

everything but Olympic gold, set the

fastest time to knock the reigning

0:21:420:21:46

champion off her perch with a time

of 50.52. That time proved

0:21:460:21:53

impassable, despite a terrific run

from the German duo, who finished a

0:21:530:22:01

tantalising 0.02 behind the leaders.

Jamie Greubel Poser and her partner

0:22:010:22:07

finished a close third, 0.07 off the

lead,

0:22:070:22:15

lead, with Kaillie Humphries of

Canada in fifth, with our crowd

0:22:160:22:19

affronted GB duo in sixth going into

heat two.

0:22:190:22:23

For Great Britain in sixth place,

Mica McNeill and Mica Moore.

She is

0:22:230:22:30

driving this track really well,

considering that she has only had

0:22:300:22:33

ten runs on the track, you can see

the gap starting to close, and this

0:22:330:22:40

is watching has been doing so well,

if she gets through clean, a double

0:22:400:22:44

tap, she will carry enough speed at

this point. Unless she makes another

0:22:440:22:48

mistake, she needs to settle into

this run. She is closing, but is

0:22:480:22:53

there an attractive come in front of

the Canadians the bottom?

They are

0:22:530:22:59

quicker than Rissling, can they put

pressure on Kaillie Humphries? They

0:22:590:23:03

will end run number two no worse

than sixth. Now Kaillie Humphries

0:23:030:23:10

finds herself in fifth place, and

with work to do if she is going to

0:23:100:23:15

hold onto the gold medal for the

third time.

Great start. I do not

0:23:150:23:19

know whether Mica will be in front

of her, but she's losing speed to

0:23:190:23:23

the British sled.

Real doubts now

that Kaillie Humphries can get

0:23:230:23:27

herself another gold medal. Next up,

in fourth place, Stephanie

0:23:270:23:31

Schneider.

She loves this past part

of the track, is this where she will

0:23:310:23:36

start pulling ahead of Kaillie

Humphries? It certainly looks like

0:23:360:23:42

she's losing speed at the bottom

compared to Kaillie

0:23:420:23:44

she's losing speed at the bottom

compared to Kaillie, as she makes

0:23:440:23:46

another mistake.

The German sleds

don't usually loses bid, do they?

0:23:460:23:52

She stays ahead by a fraction. This

is Mariama Jamanka, representing

0:23:520:24:01

Germany, the former hammer thrower.

The first person to clinch will lose

0:24:010:24:05

out on the medal. They cannot be won

today but they can certainly be

0:24:050:24:10

lost, just centimetres off the

perfect line, but that is the

0:24:100:24:13

difference between getting it right

and costing yourself time, but she

0:24:130:24:17

will keep a good margin at the speed

trap.

A growing margin, Jamanka

0:24:170:24:24

finishing very well for Germany,

puts herself in a great position!

0:24:240:24:28

Currently in first place. The

Americans, Elana Meyers Taylor and

0:24:280:24:35

Lauren Gibbs, they had a 0.02

advantage, as Meyers Taylor goes in

0:24:350:24:41

pursuit of the one prize that has

eluded her throughout her career,

0:24:410:24:46

Olympic gold, a track record start.

This is why they are in the lead,

0:24:460:24:51

but that is a big mistake, that will

cost her. I don't think she will

0:24:510:24:55

have that 0.23 at the bottom, she

has lost 0.1 already in two corners,

0:24:550:25:01

she will struggle.

Germany and the

United States will be the leaders,

0:25:010:25:07

and Meyers Taylor has just lost the

lead, 0.7 behind. Jamanka will lead

0:25:070:25:13

at the end of day one, but the big

message is that those two are now a

0:25:130:25:19

comfortable margin ahead of the

others.

0:25:190:25:28

And in the top six, the Great

Britain pair, Mica and Mica doing

0:25:280:25:32

really well, is this a shock?

Well,

yeah, I guess it is a shock, a cause

0:25:320:25:38

we probably thought they would be

lucky to get into the top ten, but

0:25:380:25:42

Mica has come on in leaps and

bounds, and confidence, she has been

0:25:420:25:46

a little bit under the radar, almost

not have that pressure on her,

0:25:460:25:49

almost forgotten about the girls

because we have been concentrating

0:25:490:25:54

on the men. But she popped out a

really good first run, their start

0:25:540:25:58

aren't quite as quick, so they are a

good 0.2 behind, well, even more

0:25:580:26:05

than that behind the fastest

starters, they are 12th four starts.

0:26:050:26:10

What could they do better?

To be

fair, they are not just as strong as

0:26:100:26:16

the others, they do not have the

weight behind them to push the bob.

0:26:160:26:22

But I was surprised how well she was

driving, you can see how rough and

0:26:220:26:28

ready it is.

A lot of masking tape!

You get a lot of bumps and bruises

0:26:280:26:33

in there, it is not glamorous! She

had a great run, and she just needed

0:26:330:26:38

to perfect a few things on the

track, took a little hit coming out

0:26:380:26:42

of ten and 11 into 12. But overall

just unbelievable to be in sixth

0:26:420:26:48

place. And in front of her, yeah, we

can see her coming down the track

0:26:480:26:52

here, she just clips late, which

meant that she had to work a lot

0:26:520:26:57

harder in corner 12, where you need

the speed. And then clips into

0:26:570:27:02

corner 13. So they would have lost a

little bit of time there, and you

0:27:020:27:06

cannot make it back because this is

the uphill section.

What would you

0:27:060:27:11

say to them tomorrow? Could you see

them going up into the top four,

0:27:110:27:15

maybe a medal, is that too much?

I

would be telling them, don't do

0:27:150:27:20

anything differently, you need to

clean that up, but with less nerves

0:27:200:27:24

that will naturally happen. She

knows she made those mistakes, they

0:27:240:27:28

will be giving it everything their

body has to try to push that bit

0:27:280:27:31

quicker. 0.1 at the top does matter

at the bottom. In front of her in

0:27:310:27:37

fifth place is Kaillie Humphries,

double Olympic champion, from

0:27:370:27:41

Canada, who we never thought would

be in fifth place. So we are talking

0:27:410:27:45

margins, we have seen so much can

happen. Until they finish the line

0:27:450:27:50

on run four, anything could happen.

0.16 behind a medal position, so if

0:27:500:27:55

they sharpen up the starts, who

knows? Certainly value for money for

0:27:550:27:59

everyone who has funded them.

0:27:590:28:02

I actually dreamt about

curling last night.

0:28:020:28:04

That's how much it's been

getting into my brain.

0:28:040:28:06

I woke up this morning

and turned on the TV to see

0:28:060:28:09

how the GB women were getting on.

0:28:090:28:11

We're reaching the end of

the round-robin stages,

0:28:110:28:13

and here's Paddy with today's

crucial matches.

0:28:130:28:18

After magic Monday, a tough Tuesday

loomed for Britain's curlers.

0:28:180:28:24

Yesterday's victories would be

worthless if they were followed with

0:28:240:28:27

defeat. We are building up to the

semis and running out of stones.

0:28:270:28:31

Stephen Smith faced Norway, strong

curlers with strange trousers.

0:28:310:28:42

curlers with strange trousers. --

team Smith. It is easy to forget

0:28:420:28:45

this is their first Olympics, they

seem so at home in the house.

You

0:28:450:28:49

has got his shooting boots on, Kyle

Smith, playing excellent at the

0:28:490:28:53

moment.

By M6, this was almost over.

This may be curtains.

Norway would

0:28:530:29:01

left needing snookers with stones,

but their trousers didn't match

0:29:010:29:07

their draws or their take-outs. They

shook hands after only seven ends.

0:29:070:29:13

Their best performance of the Games

so far.

They are on the brink of the

0:29:130:29:18

semis, joint second, only the USA to

play.

One more win and you are

0:29:180:29:23

through.

We knew that we were

needing a win in the last round of

0:29:230:29:27

the round-robin, so we have put

ourselves in a great position, we

0:29:270:29:30

just need to do the job tomorrow.

Eve Muirhead's team were up against

0:29:300:29:36

Japan, who have impressed in these

games and did so again in end one.

0:29:360:29:42

Three for Japan, and if you are

getting a three, you will have to

0:29:420:29:45

play well to claw that back.

Pressure, then, but that seems to be

0:29:450:29:50

where this British team really

thrives, and M6 was the day, 3-3,

0:29:500:29:54

they set Japan a tough task. -- end

six was the key.

Not good enough,

0:29:540:30:04

that will be three, then. This could

be a huge turnaround for Great

0:30:040:30:08

Britain.

If you take three and not

have the last shot, you know you are

0:30:080:30:14

in control. Eve Muirhead finished it

with a simple spoiler.

They had to

0:30:140:30:18

win this match against Japan, and

they have played very well indeed.

0:30:180:30:22

We knew it would be a very tough

game, we gave them a lot of respect,

0:30:220:30:26

played our own game, but we came

back, we had a great fifth end chat

0:30:260:30:32

with our coaches, they must have

done something well, because we came

0:30:320:30:37

back with three.

Looking healthy for

Eve and the gang, up to joint third,

0:30:370:30:42

a win against a strangely

inconsistent Canada would do it, a

0:30:420:30:45

real chance to make the semis and a

statement.

0:30:450:30:49

final. No wonder they can't believe

it, they weren't even on the ice.

0:30:490:30:52

Still to come...

0:30:520:30:54

Lights, music - now

what about the medals?

0:30:540:30:56

Virtue and Moir were

looking for perfection.

0:30:560:30:58

And our halfpipe hopes

are with Rowan Cheshire.

0:30:580:31:00

We've got a flipping

entertaining final for you.

0:31:000:31:06

It's not fair!

0:31:070:31:15

DANCE MUSIC

0:31:230:31:30

enjoy it.

It's a word I never say.

For every team in a three it's their

0:31:310:31:38

ambition to make it to the next one.

0:31:380:31:41

Now to figure skating,

and it's the ice dance.

0:31:410:31:43

Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland

were sitting in tenth place

0:31:430:31:46

after the short dance yesterday.

0:31:460:31:47

But it was the world record breaking

performance by Canadian couple

0:31:470:31:50

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir

that catapulted the 2010 Olympic

0:31:500:31:52

champions into gold medal position.

0:31:520:31:53

The Winter Olympics is all

about new experiences, so we sent

0:31:530:31:56

Jenny Jones to the Gangneung Ice

Arena to soak up the atmosphere.

0:31:560:32:02

As an athlete, one of the things you

dread most is injuries, but I have a

0:32:020:32:08

career threatening injury is a whole

other level. For Penny and Nick that

0:32:080:32:11

is exactly what happened so it's

incredible they are even here at the

0:32:110:32:14

Olympics today. In 2016, Penny

shattered her knee in eight places,

0:32:140:32:22

as she and Nick attempted a lift

during training.

Like that, I'm on

0:32:220:32:27

the floor with half of my knee cup

up here and the other half down

0:32:270:32:31

there.

After doctors told her she

may never skate competitively again,

0:32:310:32:36

she was determined to find a way

back.

This is for all the people who

0:32:360:32:41

thought I couldn't do this, because

I can.

0:32:410:32:45

COMMENTATOR: It's a little tense at

the moment. They've just got to get

0:32:500:32:56

on with it and do what they can.

I

can't wait to see them, I hope they

0:32:560:33:01

have a good, clean performance,

that's all they want to do, skate

0:33:010:33:04

clean.

We've just got to be

confident for them, that's the

0:33:040:33:08

problem. It's asked that are nervous

wrecks! They are fine.

0:33:080:33:16

Penny and Nick are just about to

start.

0:33:160:33:24

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:34:470:34:56

What an incredible performance from

Penny and Nick.

The pair of them

0:34:560:35:02

have been through so much and they

just got that clean skate.

They

0:35:020:35:06

couldn't do more than that.

They've

been through so much, just to be

0:35:060:35:09

here is amazing, isn't it?

Yes, it

is, we're really proud of them, they

0:35:090:35:15

did us proud today.

Penny and Nick

overcame all the odds to get this

0:35:150:35:19

Olympic final. They finished in a

very respectable 11th place. That

0:35:190:35:23

next up were the US brother and

sister duo Shibutani Maia and

0:35:230:35:29

Shibutani Alex with a medal

performing performance. They took a

0:35:290:35:35

silver overall with this incredible

routine.

0:35:350:35:41

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:36:190:36:25

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, the

world champions, the 2010 Olympic

0:36:320:36:37

champions, they are going to be

extraordinary if they want to win

0:36:370:36:41

this gold medal they will have to be

the new world record is laid down by

0:36:410:36:47

Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume

Cizeron.

0:36:470:36:51

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:37:410:37:47

They've done it, 122.40. The

comeback is complete for Tessa

0:37:540:38:02

Virtue and Scott Moir. Silver in

Sochi four years ago. They took two

0:38:020:38:06

years away from the competition and

return to win World Championship

0:38:060:38:11

gold last year and now it's Olympic

gold! What an absolute privilege to

0:38:110:38:16

be here to witness this world-class

skating. The Canadians there just

0:38:160:38:23

gave an exceptional performance, it

was amazing! I know Nick and Penny

0:38:230:38:27

maybe didn't get the score that they

wanted today, but just to be here

0:38:270:38:32

and be able to perform at the

Olympics is an amazing achievement

0:38:320:38:35

for them.

It's been a long journey.

I'm pleased we managed to get here

0:38:350:38:42

and put out two performances like we

have done in the past two days, it

0:38:420:38:45

something to be really proud of.

What we do day in and day out, this

0:38:450:38:50

is the glamorous side but the

training is on our way. You have

0:38:500:38:53

is the glamorous side but the

training is on our way. You have to

0:38:530:38:53

have a real guts and great to get

through those hard days. This

0:38:530:38:58

experience is so rewarding is I'm so

lucky and I wouldn't change anything

0:38:580:39:02

for the world.

Definitely they've

shown guts and grit and finished

0:39:020:39:06

11th, to the delight of Christopher

Dean and Jayne Torvill. Chris, you

0:39:060:39:10

have been helping them. We will talk

about them in a moment. Can you just

0:39:100:39:14

share with the audience the

differences between the gold and

0:39:140:39:18

silver medallists, the Canadians and

French pair, and why you may be

0:39:180:39:22

liked one more than the other?

In

this competition there equally...

0:39:220:39:28

It's a matter of taste of what you

prefer. One is clearly dramatic and

0:39:280:39:33

theatrical and the other is sort of

like liquid gold as they skate, they

0:39:330:39:37

get down into the knees and it is

soft and smooth. The Canadians,

0:39:370:39:44

Scott and Tessa are putting on this

theatre, this drama, acting out

0:39:440:39:49

every move. It is like a movie. That

is what they are skating to, the

0:39:490:39:58

soundtrack from Moulin Rouge. The

French dancing to Beethoven. Two

0:39:580:40:06

different styles, equally as strong

and as good. It's what you prefer.

0:40:060:40:11

The judges are looking at all the

elements, breaking it down, element

0:40:110:40:15

by element and scoring it.

The

judges gave the free dance, the wind

0:40:150:40:24

to France?

They did an apparently

not even a French judge on the

0:40:240:40:28

panel.

Surely that would make a

difference!

No, just saying, though.

0:40:280:40:35

I mean, I'm with Chris. I find them

easy to watch because it's not

0:40:350:40:41

forced, it's organic, it's just

natural, it's just within them. The

0:40:410:40:45

Canadians do is amazing moves and

lifts but it's just hard. Maybe if

0:40:450:40:50

they had a different classical piece

of musical we would see a different

0:40:500:40:53

side to them as well.

One was

romance and the other drama. What

0:40:530:40:58

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir out of

their advantage is they have skated

0:40:580:41:02

together so long. Look at this video

of them.

Amazing. From kids, they

0:41:020:41:10

started skating, they have been

together such a long time, they know

0:41:100:41:13

how each other think and move, their

thoughts. They can talk to each

0:41:130:41:20

other telepathically, with their

eyes, just their facial expressions.

0:41:200:41:25

It all comes together.

It's great

they wanted to continue having got a

0:41:250:41:30

gold medal and then a silver, they

didn't want to end it there.

0:41:300:41:33

Probably having a bit of time out,

they probably thought, we don't want

0:41:330:41:37

to leave it here and maybe that is

because of their friendship all that

0:41:370:41:42

time. Let's finish on a high.

And

also, they are competitors.

Yes.

The

0:41:420:41:49

ultimate competitors, they have come

through the gold medal. Brilliant

0:41:490:41:55

from the company as well.

0:41:550:41:58

Tomorrow it's a big day

on the big hill for a big name.

0:41:580:42:01

I kind of believed I would be in the

Olympics since I was eight years

0:42:010:42:07

old.

I'm not going to lie, it's

something I always believed in and

0:42:070:42:12

knew I was meant to do. My earliest

memory of the Olympics would be the

0:42:120:42:19

98 Olympics, that really captivated

me.

0:42:190:42:25

me. I met Picabu when I was nine. I

have the pictures she signed, she

0:42:280:42:32

said follow your dreams. She really

made me believe in myself. The

0:42:320:42:36

Olympics are captivating because

it's the pinnacle of sport.

Lindsey

0:42:360:42:41

Vonn skis for the gold medal and she

has got it!

That was all of my

0:42:410:42:46

emotions coming out. That was my

whole life, working hard for that

0:42:460:42:51

one moment and realising that I

achieved it. It was the most

0:42:510:42:54

incredible moment of my career.

0:42:540:43:00

incredible moment of my career.

Vonn

crashes off.

When you are injured

0:43:010:43:07

you have to wait so long, so the

anticipation for me is pretty big. I

0:43:070:43:12

want to finish my career strong, I

want to hopefully win another

0:43:120:43:16

Olympic gold medal. I want to give

the girls of the next-generation

0:43:160:43:22

someone to look up to, just like I

looked up to Picabu and all the

0:43:220:43:28

Olympians when I was a kid.

Lindsey

Vonn, the fastest female skier bear

0:43:280:43:31

has ever been and that offers. After

recovering from horrendous injury

0:43:310:43:36

she is trying to win a second gold

medal. You can see how she gets on

0:43:360:43:39

tomorrow morning at 2am. We will

have the highlights tomorrow

0:43:390:43:42

evening.

0:43:420:43:46

Ice hockey now, and it's play

off-day in the men's competiton.

0:43:460:43:48

Sweden, Canada, Czech

Republic and OAR qualify

0:43:480:43:50

automatically for the quarterfinals

- they get a day off.

0:43:500:43:52

Four matches today to decide

the quarterfinal line-up.

0:43:520:43:54

But first there was another

ice hockey story that

0:43:540:43:56

grabbed the headlines.

0:43:560:43:57

Here's Seth Bennett.

0:43:570:44:05

Four years ago, national hero,

scoring the nation's first-ever

0:44:090:44:15

Olympic gold but today news broke

that he hurt tested positive for a

0:44:150:44:23

banned drug in an asthma medication.

His team-mates had to go on without

0:44:230:44:28

him. Slovenia ran out of puff and

the determination paid off.

Norway

0:44:280:44:33

have won it in overtime!

Also

pressure for the Americans, who lost

0:44:330:44:39

two of their group games, but

powered by Harvard student Ryan

0:44:390:44:42

Talat to the dismissal of Slovakia.

Wonderful finish!

0:44:420:44:56

A dramatic end to deal European tie

between Germany and Switzerland, who

0:45:020:45:07

needed a game-winning goal in

overtime to progress.

Germany have

0:45:070:45:11

it. And finished, the puck went

loose in front! Simon Bird sends

0:45:110:45:17

Germany through to the

quarterfinals.

0:45:170:45:19

And it was almost time to say

goodbye to the Koreans, but not

0:45:240:45:28

before they gave Finland a real

scare.

Goal for the Koreans,

0:45:280:45:34

finished off from close range! And

look what it means!

0:45:340:45:43

An emotional moment for the head

coach, who poured his heart and soul

0:45:440:45:48

into this Olympic adventure.

The

Korean eyes at the adventure is

0:45:480:45:52

over.

His team certainly did him

proud and prove that Asian eyes are

0:45:520:45:59

key is certainly on the up.

0:45:590:46:03

Bronze-medal match in the women's

ice hockey competition,

0:46:040:46:06

Finland versus OAR

tomorrow morning, 7:40.

0:46:060:46:08

USA face Canada in

the final on Thursday.

0:46:080:46:12

The day before yesterday

we saw James Woods fall

0:46:120:46:14

just short in the ski slopestyle.

0:46:140:46:17

Fourth place sucks.

0:46:170:46:18

So what do you do?

0:46:180:46:19

You brush yourself down

and look for another job.

0:46:190:46:21

So here is the halfpipe,

presented by Woodsy.

0:46:210:46:29

This is dope! It is Woodsy here,

your honorary halfpipe reporter for

0:46:400:46:46

the day, we are at Phoenix Park, and

first up is Rowan Cheshire, finding

0:46:460:46:52

assault in the top 12 of the women's

free ski halfpipe. Enjoy the action.

0:46:520:46:58

Just needs to stay there and put

down a solid score, nice big

0:46:580:47:06

alley-oop.

There is the amplitude we

have seen, into the nine.

Switch

0:47:060:47:12

alley-oop.

Lovely! Great first-run,

great first run.

She opened up with

0:47:120:47:24

a clean, confidence building run,

scoring 75.4, putting her in second

0:47:240:47:29

place, but you would stay there for

long as the rest of the women

0:47:290:47:33

dropped some heavy schools.

America's Annalisa Drew lays down a

0:47:330:47:38

huge run, with scores in the high

80s. Marie Martinod of France puts

0:47:380:47:43

down a beautiful run to take the

lead, the gauntlet had been slammed

0:47:430:47:47

down, but Cassie Sharpe of Canada

raised the bar even happier to go

0:47:470:47:53

into first place. Rowan Cheshire

started run two down in sixth place

0:47:530:47:56

but couldn't repeat her clean riding

of the first run. Sigourney threw

0:47:560:48:03

down a beautiful run but stayed in

third. The battle for the medals was

0:48:030:48:07

far from over.

Marie Martinod,

fantastic Alpine themed pans from

0:48:070:48:15

the 70s.

She looks good, doesn't

she?

Lovely style from her on the

0:48:150:48:22

first hit.

She is

0:48:220:48:28

first hit.

She is giving the cable

camera operator a headache!

Into the

0:48:290:48:32

tent, she lands the ten!

Wow!

The

33-year-old mother of one absolutely

0:48:320:48:41

destroying its here at Phoenix Park.

Oh, my goodness, not the improvement

0:48:410:48:48

we thought she was going to make!

No, we thought it would be more than

0:48:480:48:52

that.

0:48:520:48:57

that.

Look at this, she is running

the game right now, Cassie

0:48:570:49:02

that.

Look at this, she is running

the game right now, Cassie.

360

0:49:020:49:04

switch, down the pipe 360, really

nice. And finally, finishing off

0:49:040:49:11

with a bang!

Oh!

0:49:110:49:18

with a bang!

Oh! Nine to nine to

open, ten to finish, and everything

0:49:180:49:21

in between was big and stylish.

95.80, it is an improvement, Cassie

0:49:210:49:28

Sharpe has put it out of reach for

everybody else there.

In the third

0:49:280:49:34

and final run, Rowan fell on a 900,

but the score from run one was

0:49:340:49:39

enough to give her seventh place.

Sometimes nerves get to me, it is

0:49:390:49:44

always the first one that I tend to

fall on! So like, oh, I am so glad I

0:49:440:49:50

could put it down. I am really

happy.

Ahead of, the battle amongst

0:49:500:49:55

the Americans was heating up, Maddie

Bowman was devastated by failing to

0:49:550:49:59

land a clean run, falling on the

final hit. Annalisa Drew snatched

0:49:590:50:05

bronze medal position without sick

run. But it was Brita Sigourney who

0:50:050:50:09

stomped her third run to take third

place straight back from Annalisa

0:50:090:50:13

Drew.

Goodness me, Martinod dodging

a huge bullet!

Silver and gold was

0:50:130:50:22

decided, the only question was who

would take which medal.

Gold fever

0:50:220:50:28

in women's ski pipe finals, Marie

Martinod is on the hunt, the nine

0:50:280:50:33

was so well measured.

Really clean!

She has gone! And you don't need to

0:50:330:50:40

be a rocket surgeon to do the maths

on that one.

Cassie Sharpe knew the

0:50:400:50:45

gold was hers, that sensational

second run sealing victory.

It is

0:50:450:50:51

incredible, it doesn't quite feel

real yet, but I have put a whole

0:50:510:50:55

bunch of work into getting here.

What a fantastic show from the

0:50:550:51:01

ladies, we are also proud of you,

Rowan, amazing story, you have done

0:51:010:51:07

us all crowd, and the others did

free skiing proud. Next up, we have

0:51:070:51:13

got the men's free ski halfpipe

qualification, Buchan, Pedro, Xander

0:51:130:51:20

coming right up, enjoy. The big

names did not have it all up own way

0:51:200:51:27

in the qualifying round, but the

defending champion scratched his

0:51:270:51:31

first run.

Oh, he has dropped it.

But they returned with solid efforts

0:51:310:51:41

in round two, doing just enough to

make the final. Aaron Blunck did

0:51:410:51:47

enough to get all the way to first

place with Alex Ferreira and Torin

0:51:470:51:51

Yater-Wallace behind him in second

and third. All of the big hitters

0:51:510:51:56

have plenty more in their locker.

We

want to see the best guys in the

0:51:560:52:00

final, we want to see the big tricks

that we know they can do.

If anyone

0:52:000:52:04

is in doubt about our danger in

halfpipe riding is, this made it

0:52:040:52:09

abundantly clear.

Oh, that is

massive.

Please be all right! You

0:52:090:52:16

walked away but failed to qualify,

as did the Brits. Murray Buchan

0:52:160:52:24

dropped last in the qualification

round and had to improve his score

0:52:240:52:28

by only 2.8 to make the finals.

Come

on, Murray!

The rest of his first

0:52:280:52:35

run was beautiful, nice left side,

then right side, 720 tail grab, very

0:52:350:52:43

clean, very within Murray's ability,

switch right down the type, 720,

0:52:430:52:48

into a second, yes! That was better

than run one. Was it better than

0:52:480:52:53

Andreas's run?

Oh!

Oh!

So unlucky

for Murray Buchan in 14th place.

It

0:52:530:53:03

has been a banging day at the

halfpipe, thank you very much for

0:53:030:53:07

joining us, so much more to come in

the men's free ski Superbike finals.

0:53:070:53:14

This is Woodsy, honorary halfpipe

presenter, checking out!

0:53:140:53:18

Ski cross is nothing without a bit

of luck! The quicker they are, the

0:53:210:53:27

harder they fall!

0:53:270:53:35

MUSIC PLAYS

0:53:350:53:40

This is going to get exciting!

It is

good, the ski cross, love that,

0:53:530:53:57

stars late tonight, 2:30am.

0:53:570:54:01

Here's Paddy with the best

of the rest from Pyeongchang.

0:54:010:54:06

A bit of French sporting history in

the mixed biathlon, so

0:54:070:54:16

the mixed biathlon, so dominant was

Fourcade's finish that he could

0:54:160:54:17

stage manage the moment he became

France's most successful winter

0:54:170:54:22

Olympian. From an event where women

and men both compete to the only

0:54:220:54:26

event which only allows men, Nordic

combined, which saw large hill ski

0:54:260:54:33

jumping and cross-country, one, two,

three for Germany, led over the line

0:54:330:54:37

by Rydzek. Might that success be

down to beer? They have apparently

0:54:370:54:41

taken down to drinking fruit we beer

because a study has shown it help

0:54:410:54:46

athletes recover quicker and train

harder. Strictly nonalcoholic, of

0:54:460:54:50

course, more isotonic, less gin and

tonic. You might have seen the

0:54:500:54:55

hypnotic halfpipe of Elizabeth

Smylie, the American skier

0:54:550:54:59

representing Hungary. The trick play

in hardly trying any tricks at all,

0:54:590:55:05

a minimalist approach she used at as

many World Cup events as she could

0:55:050:55:07

to gain enough points to reach the

Olympics. Because of that, the

0:55:070:55:12

Hungarian authorities say they might

have to rethink their selection

0:55:120:55:14

process.

It is not back, but that is very

0:55:140:55:19

funny!

0:55:190:55:23

No golds for leaders Norway,

0:55:230:55:24

but Germany close the gap after that

win in the Nordic combined.

0:55:240:55:29

Let's go off piste.

0:55:290:55:32

You are sending in some fabulous

photos, thank you, thank you for the

0:55:370:55:40

effort as well in creating the

various looks. That looks like the

0:55:400:55:47

triple luge, probably. Spot the six

Winter Olympic sports in this

0:55:470:55:50

picture. Bobsleigh, curling.

Skeleton. Skiing across there?!

0:55:500:55:58

One cool kid here.

0:55:580:56:04

Good slopestyle.

0:56:040:56:06

This is Biscuit,

poised for the dog bob.

0:56:060:56:10

He takes the biscuit.

Look at this

for posture.

0:56:100:56:14

Aggie the snowboarding

Dachshund from Scotland.

0:56:140:56:18

Yells copyright body for it. -- he

has got the right body for it.

0:56:180:56:25

And Matthew and Charlotte

get off to a good start

0:56:250:56:28

in the two-kid bobsleigh.

0:56:280:56:32

And the four-man toy bob,

0:56:320:56:33

featuring Igglepiggle and

Po the pilot!

0:56:330:56:35

And these are Johnny Ely's friends,

they have done the whole Mica and

0:56:350:56:43

Mica thing!

Listen to what she says!

It is a cold!

Their evenings look

0:56:430:56:56

fun.

Don't they just?! Red heart, --

red

0:56:560:57:06

hot, ice ice. This didn't work out

for the Irishman. This is how you

0:57:120:57:16

relax before the most important

event in your life, and it doesn't

0:57:160:57:18

work out for Marie Martinod, there

is always Strictly! That is quite

0:57:180:57:23

good! Next, it is a crying shame,

especially when your brother has the

0:57:230:57:31

flag that you really want! And

finally, when you are a netminder,

0:57:310:57:36

always use your head, a simple case

of mind over matter. I know!

0:57:360:57:46

of mind over matter. I know! I do

love that. What has been your

0:57:460:57:48

favourite events so far,

Christopher?

Other than hide --

0:57:480:57:55

ice-skating?! I do like the snow

crust, and I'm looking forward to

0:57:550:57:59

the downhill.

Turn over to BBC Four

now for extended highlights of the

0:57:590:58:05

women's halfpipe and the ice dance

free programme. Loads to come

0:58:050:58:08

tomorrow.

If you've had a tough day,

if things haven't gone your way,

0:58:110:58:13

spare a thought for Elise Christie.

The end of day 11 saw the end

of Elise Christie's Olympic dream

Clare Balding presents highlights of the day's action at the Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, with medals up for grabs in the biathlon, ski halfpipe, ice dance, Nordic combined and short track speedskating, and potentially crucial round-robin games for Great Britain's male and female curlers.
