WINTER OLYMPICS THEME.

0:01:180:01:26

Good evening and welcome

to the final Today at the Games.

0:01:340:01:38

Over the last 16 days,

we've been in awe of the effort

0:01:380:01:41

and amazed at the skill

of the athletes who have competed

0:01:410:01:45

in events as diverse as big air,

biathlon, curling and ice hockey.

0:01:450:01:48

From short track speed skating

to 50k cross-country skiing,

0:01:480:01:52

it's been a remarkable and record

breaking Winter Olympics.

0:01:520:01:55

Here's what we've got coming up

for you over the next hour.

0:01:550:02:02

The Garlic Girls have made curling

the dish of the day in Korea.

0:02:020:02:06

Can Sunny, Steak, Pancake,

Yoghurt and Chocho give the home

0:02:060:02:09

crowd a taste of glory?

0:02:090:02:12

We reflect on Britain's greatest

ever Winter Olympics.

0:02:120:02:15

And then it's party time.

0:02:150:02:19

The athletes can let their hair down

at the closing ceremony.

0:02:190:02:23

And to share all that is...

0:02:230:02:27

fresh from finishing

fourth in the freestyle

0:02:270:02:31

slopestyle, Woodsy.

0:02:310:02:37

And skeleton champion,

our Winter Olympic champion

0:02:370:02:39

from 2010, Amy Williams.

0:02:390:02:40

Chemmy Alcott -

0:02:400:02:41

four-time Winter Olympian

and downhill whizz.

0:02:410:02:44

Yesterday, Eve's Muirhead's rink

fell agonisingly short in the bronze

0:02:440:02:48

medal curling match against Japan.

0:02:480:02:50

Today was the gold medal match.

0:02:500:02:51

The new stars of the host nation,

0:02:510:02:53

nicknamed the Garlic Girls,

because they all come from the same

0:02:530:02:55

region in South Korea,

known for producing garlic.

0:02:550:03:02

They were watched across the nation,

every channel on curling.

0:03:030:03:06

Could they produce a huge upset

by defeating Swedish team who find

0:03:060:03:10

themselves in the final

for the fourth consecutive Olympics.

0:03:100:03:11

David McDaid was there.

0:03:110:03:13

David McDaid was there.

0:03:130:03:21

Never mind Lindsey Vonn, Shaun

White, even Lizzy Yarnold. In South

0:03:210:03:26

Korea, the only name on everybody's

lips is the Garlic Girls.

0:03:260:03:36

Those girls are from a small town

nobody can pronounce, so they call

0:03:490:03:54

it the Garlic Girls because

apparently that is where garlic

0:03:540:03:57

originated from.

Because they are

all Kims, they have food names. One

0:03:570:04:05

is Pancake. They have American

breakfast names are the coach can

0:04:050:04:09

tell them apart.

We are proud of our

Garlic Girls.

South Korea's first

0:04:090:04:20

curling rink was only built in 2006

so it is a small sport here but

0:04:200:04:26

millions in South Korea tuned in to

watch them and today they aim to be

0:04:260:04:31

their first Olympic champions.

Garlic Girls, Team Kim, has been

0:04:310:04:41

sensational.

Taking on Sweden.

0:04:410:04:42

Garlic Girls, Team Kim, has been

sensational.

Taking on Sweden.

0:04:420:04:44

She made Janet.

Right now it is the

Swedes in control and for the first

0:04:470:05:00

time, the rink is subdued.

COMMENTATOR: A huge opportunity for

0:05:000:05:04

the Swedish skip. Yes, she has got

it and Sweden know that was a huge

0:05:040:05:11

shock.

0:05:110:05:14

It is looking like a long way back

for the home side.

0:05:170:05:22

The Swedish team have been by far

the best in this final. She gets the

0:05:220:05:26

one. It is Sweden's gold medal. They

are jumping for joy.

Not to be today

0:05:260:05:35

for the Garlic Girls, instead Sweden

are Olympic champions but to come

0:05:350:05:39

from eighth in the world and win a

silver medal is a

0:05:390:05:44

from eighth in the world and win a

silver medal is a massive

0:05:440:05:44

achievement for the South Koreans.

STUDIO: Absolutely and it has been

0:05:440:05:50

South Korea's most successful Winter

Olympics. Finishing in seventh.

0:05:500:05:54

Three more medals awarded on the

final day of competition.

0:05:540:06:00

It was an epic men's ice hockey gold

medal match between Germany,

0:06:000:06:03

playing in their first ever

final, and the Olympic

0:06:030:06:05

Athletes from Russia.

0:06:050:06:06

Germany were on course for the win

until Nikita Gusev scored

0:06:060:06:09

an equaliser with 56

seconds remaining to force

0:06:090:06:10

the match into overtime.

0:06:100:06:12

The Russians had set their hearts

on a first gold medal in ice hockey

0:06:120:06:17

since 1992, and 20-year-old

Kirill Kaprizov made sure of it.

0:06:170:06:20

A golden goal in every sense.

0:06:200:06:22

The win gave the OAR

their second gold

0:06:220:06:24

of the Pyeongchang Games,

and 17th medal overall.

0:06:240:06:31

In the four-man bob,

Germany cruised to victory

0:06:310:06:33

with pilot Francesco Friedrich

taking his second gold medal.

0:06:330:06:36

That's three gold medals in three

bobsleigh events for Germany,

0:06:360:06:39

who failed to even get on the podium

at all in Sochi.

0:06:390:06:44

There was a tie for the silver

medal between South Korea

0:06:440:06:47

and the second German crew.

0:06:470:06:48

Plagued by problems

with their runners and an unsettled

0:06:480:06:50

preparation, the two British crews

finished 17th and 18th.

0:06:500:06:58

And what can you say about Norway's

record-breaking Marit Bjorgen,

0:06:590:07:04

who was so far ahead of the field

in the 30km mass start cross country

0:07:040:07:07

race that no one else could see her.

0:07:070:07:09

The Iron Lady blazed home in front

to equal the record of eight golds

0:07:090:07:13

and take her all-time medal

haul to 15.

0:07:130:07:18

The 37-year-old mother won a medal

in all five events she contested

0:07:180:07:21

at this year's Games,

the second time she's won five

0:07:210:07:23

medals at one Games.

0:07:230:07:24

Competing in the final Olympic event

of her 16-year career,

0:07:240:07:27

Bjorgen finishes with eight golds,

four silvers and three

0:07:270:07:29

bronzes from five Games.

0:07:290:07:33

Simply put, she is the greatest

winter Olympian of all time.

0:07:330:07:41

It seems appropriate it is Marit

Bjorgen's gold that pushes them

0:07:430:07:50

ahead of Germany and

0:07:500:07:51

Bjorgen's gold that pushes them

ahead of Germany and they top the

0:07:510:07:52

table for the first time since 2002.

A record 39 medals overall. Germany

0:07:520:07:58

and second. Both equalling the

record of gold medals Canada set in

0:07:580:08:04

Vancouver. The Netherlands and

Sweden had good games. South Korea

0:08:040:08:07

in seven.

0:08:070:08:13

And Great Britain in 19. We are

there backs to the fearless five.

0:08:130:08:22

-- And we are there thanks

to our fearless five.

0:08:240:08:26

Dom Parsons kicked it all off

with a bronze in the skeleton.

0:08:260:08:29

The youngest member of the team,

Izzy Atkin won bronze

0:08:290:08:31

in ski slopestyle.

0:08:310:08:32

Then just a few hours later,

a brilliant bronze for Laura Deas

0:08:320:08:35

in the womens skeleton,

before our crowning

0:08:350:08:37

glory, as Lizzy Yarnold

defended her Olympic title.

0:08:370:08:39

And then Billy Morgan bagged

a bronze in the big air.

0:08:390:08:41

Four of those five medals happened

just within 36 hours.

0:08:410:08:44

Medals decided in the next couple of

hours on a vital morning for great

0:08:440:08:47

British sport. Dom Parsons next. The

equation is simple, if his time goes

0:08:470:08:52

green, he is in good shape.

Is this

the run that will get Great Britain

0:08:520:08:57

their first Olympic medal of these

Winter live pics?

No!

0:08:570:09:08

Winter live pics?

No! Dom Parsons

may be just about to agonisingly

0:09:080:09:13

miss out. If Martins Dukurs makes a

mistake, who knows, Dom Parsons

0:09:130:09:18

might be back in the medal race.

That was a mistake, a big mistake he

0:09:180:09:26

has never made before. It is

starting to drop off.

He is in the

0:09:260:09:31

red. Five hundredths between himself

and Parsons. Dom Parsons,

0:09:310:09:38

unbelievably, has his medal. For

Great Britain!

0:09:380:09:50

We hand over to the commentary duo.

This is the biggest day for British

0:09:500:09:57

athletes.

Izzy Atkin, what her she got?

The

0:09:570:10:05

biggest run of her life starts now.

Come on, Izzy Atkin. Final jump. Oh!

0:10:050:10:18

Must try to remain impartial. It is

a third-place! Ladies and gentlemen,

0:10:180:10:26

Great Britain's Izzy Atkin takes the

bronze medal.

You are a history

0:10:260:10:32

maker, that is amazing.

It has

definitely not settle them but I am

0:10:320:10:35

really proud.

Today it is all about the skeleton.

0:10:350:10:41

A warm welcome to the Sliding Centre

ahead of round three of the women's

0:10:410:10:47

skeleton. Lizzy Yarnold two

hundredths off the lead. Laura Deas

0:10:470:10:57

stays in fourth place. Now we come

to the potential medallists. Hold it

0:10:570:11:06

together. Laura Deas next for Great

Britain.

0:11:060:11:15

Britain. Lizzy Yarnold next. The

Olympic champion. Can she make

0:11:150:11:19

history and win it again? Look at

the gap. This could be at least

0:11:190:11:25

silver for Lizzy Yarnold.

She goes

to the front! That is a gold medal

0:11:250:11:30

winning run, I am sure of it.

Janine

Flock to come. Time is dropping

0:11:300:11:41

away. It looks like Lizzy Yarnold

will win a gold medal again! Does

0:11:410:11:47

Laura Deas have a medal in her?

Laura Deas has won bronze as well. A

0:11:470:11:58

great day for Britain at the Winter

Olympics.

0:11:580:12:01

# You have got to help me.

# I am losing my mind.

0:12:090:12:14

# Keep getting the feeling you want

to leave this behind.

Is it still

0:12:140:12:18

real?

0:12:180:12:25

As each minute passes it becomes

more of a reality, which is relief

0:12:250:12:29

that it did go to

0:12:290:12:32

more of a reality, which is relief

that it did go to plan. I could

0:12:320:12:32

barely look at the screen, I was so

nervous, I just had an eye on where

0:12:320:12:37

the number would come in. When I

have the medal in my hand, then it

0:12:370:12:42

will be absolutely real.

0:12:420:12:51

will be absolutely real.

Really

heavy.

0:12:510:12:56

I just saw the number one.

Fantastic.

0:12:560:13:10

OK, one minute on

0:13:100:13:20

OK, one minute on the VT.

STUDIO: An amazing period. The

0:13:200:13:24

medals started coming and you feel

like Germany or Norway but

0:13:240:13:29

fourth-place finishes as well,

including you. Do you wish you were

0:13:290:13:32

a medallists.

Absolutely. Winning

feels great, it was what I was there

0:13:320:13:40

to do. I can only say I gave my all.

It was blooming close.

There was a

0:13:400:13:48

feeling of momentum with three of

the five medals coming from

0:13:480:13:52

skeleton. Clearly skeleton are doing

something right. How much does it

0:13:520:13:56

help the team that you look around

and think, you are on the podium?

0:13:560:14:01

When you see someone else get a

medal, Dom Parsons for the men, the

0:14:010:14:06

feeling within the team of Team GB,

suddenly it is not impossible, we

0:14:060:14:12

can win medals and the culture in

skeleton is nothing is impossible.

0:14:120:14:16

We have won medals in every Olympics

and new athletes coming in watch the

0:14:160:14:21

current athletes, we have new

talent, in Germany, now, sliding,

0:14:210:14:30

watching these Olympics knowing

Laura and Lizzy Yarnold came through

0:14:300:14:32

the same programme and they think it

can be them in four, eight years.

In

0:14:320:14:40

Alpine skiing, and snowboarding, the

strength is getting greater.

0:14:400:14:45

We're not the under docs, and also

in the mountains, Scotland has

0:14:450:14:51

mountains but we normally go abroad

to ski on we normally think we don't

0:14:510:14:54

have this or this. Skeleton don't

have any tracks that they are to

0:14:540:14:59

reckon with. It shows you what self

belief and a programme can do. We

0:14:590:15:02

have the talent, we just need to

talent it in the right programme.

0:15:020:15:05

Youngsters coming through as well,

Izzy Atkin got a medal. How

0:15:050:15:12

important do you think it is for

people watching, Woodsy, that they

0:15:120:15:16

see British success in free skiing?

That is fantastic for me, obviously

0:15:160:15:23

because free skiing is my thing, my

passion. Snowboarding as well. It's

0:15:230:15:27

good. I think it's something I

wanted to touch on, there's been a

0:15:270:15:32

really positive spin, not just now,

but coming for a while, potentially

0:15:320:15:39

since London. There seems to be a

really positive spin where a while

0:15:390:15:43

ago there wasn't a super positive

spin back in the UK, now I feel like

0:15:430:15:48

everyone is on board.

It is cool.

It's always been cool.

Trying to be

0:15:480:15:56

the best is cool. People have

thought I can't go out with big

0:15:560:16:00

dreams and big goals because it's

cool but now you have people like

0:16:000:16:03

Woodsy and Billy saying I want to

win an Olympic medal, so it makes it

0:16:030:16:06

OK to try and be professional and do

everything you can.

Absolutely. One

0:16:060:16:10

of the biggest ambitions and stated

intentions before these games was

0:16:100:16:15

when Lizzy Yarnold said I want to be

the first Briton to successfully

0:16:150:16:18

defend an Olympic title. She did it

and it meant she got the opportunity

0:16:180:16:23

to belt out the national anthem.

0:16:230:16:31

BRITISH NATIONAL ANTHEM

0:16:370:16:45

BRITISH NATIONAL ANTHEM

0:16:540:17:02

Lizzie won that gold medal, the

heaviest ever produced by sliding on

0:17:060:17:11

her stomach. From that to flying in

the air, the last Team GB medal of

0:17:110:17:15

the games came courtesy of the man

chosen to carry the flag at the

0:17:150:17:18

closing ceremony. Here is Billy.

0:17:180:17:22

chosen to carry the flag at the

closing ceremony. Here is Billy.

0:17:220:17:23

Billy Morgan, I think, is going to

go for the frontside 1440 treble

0:17:230:17:28

Cork and if he lands a well within

the medal scores.

And he needs to go

0:17:280:17:33

absolutely stratospheric.

That is

not something he struggles with,

0:17:330:17:37

let's be honest.

Come on Billy

Morgan, frontside 1440.

Billy

0:17:370:17:45

Morgan, yes, yes!

Eight treble 1440,

that is massive, absolutely huge!

Oh

0:17:450:17:54

my goodness. , Billy Morgan moves

into brands bronze medal position.

0:17:540:18:01

The whole of the UK now needs to

watch this jump.

He's gone.

I'm

0:18:010:18:08

crying!

I just never expected it,

you know? If you come into the

0:18:080:18:14

contest thinking on shooting for a

medal, you are ready for it. Luck of

0:18:140:18:17

the draw and it came down to me on

the day so

0:18:170:18:20

the draw and it came down to me on

the day so happy days.

The lovely

0:18:200:18:21

thing about belief is I think he

sort of takes the sport to a whole

0:18:210:18:27

new audience.

Absolutely. He is such

a fun loving character. We have seen

0:18:270:18:32

everything he gets up to and it is

just great to see a dude like that

0:18:320:18:37

in the limelight. He is well in the

mix in the snowboarding side of

0:18:370:18:41

things and a wicked personality,

couldn't ask for much more!

LAUGHTER

0:18:410:18:47

And so athletic. It surpasses what

he does in the snowboard. Take

0:18:470:18:50

anywhere and he perform.

Incredibly

talented. I think it is Billy's

0:18:500:18:58

personality that takes it to all

these different places. He will

0:18:580:19:01

throw himself into any situation and

come out somehow looking real cool.

0:19:010:19:07

I think I said yesterday would be

his last Games, talking about his

0:19:070:19:11

body being too battered to do it any

more but you will say no, maybe not.

0:19:110:19:15

I don't know.

Shaun White? 32.

Billy, 28.

Who knows what's going on

0:19:150:19:23

in individual people's minds. You

said that yesterday and I thought, I

0:19:230:19:27

don't know, who knows what he's

going to do? I don't know.

Some

0:19:270:19:33

training videos, hindering backflips

and a crazy amount of stuff

0:19:330:19:35

anything, hang on a minute, you

could probably compete in summer

0:19:350:19:40

summer Olympics with those

gymnastics, and his visual awareness

0:19:400:19:45

and everything.

We will talk about

crossover from winter to summer

0:19:450:19:50

summer to winter. I'm starting to

think why isn't max Whitlock doing

0:19:500:19:53

big air!

0:19:530:19:55

We all know that sport

isn't always kind.

0:19:550:19:57

For all the glory of success

and the joy of winning,

0:19:570:19:59

there is the pain of failure

and the heartache of knowing that

0:19:590:20:02

another Olympics have

passed by without a medal.

0:20:020:20:04

Just ask Elise Christie.

0:20:040:20:05

# I hurt myself today

# To see if I still feel.

0:20:110:20:22

# I focus on the pain

# The only thing that's real

0:20:220:20:29

# And you could have it all

# My Empire of dirt

0:20:290:20:39

# If I could start again

# 1 million miles away

0:20:390:20:51

# I would keep myself

# I would find a way #.

0:20:510:21:07

It is the saddest image of the

games, I think.

The saddest image

0:21:070:21:11

but one we need to understand as

people on the outside, that not

0:21:110:21:14

everyone comes away with the medals,

the performance they hope for. She

0:21:140:21:17

was pushing herself for a win and

that is the consequence, especially

0:21:170:21:22

in winter sports, you go out there

and you go big, you crash, because

0:21:220:21:25

of up and hopefully you do it again.

And you have to be able to come back

0:21:250:21:29

from it?

You do. And it's great to

see how positive she has been in her

0:21:290:21:33

interviews. Her mind has already

carried forward, you are always

0:21:330:21:38

moving goalposts. One day you might

be like, I can't cope. You wake up

0:21:380:21:41

the next morning and you think, you

know what, I have a strategy, I want

0:21:410:21:44

to do it, I have a new plan. We're

talking fine margins, millimetres

0:21:440:21:50

Kimmich a difference between if she

clipped someone else's skates or

0:21:500:21:53

not. Those tiny, tiny margins across

all sport could be 100th of a second

0:21:530:22:01

or it could be clipping a corner on

the bobsleigh run, it could be

0:22:010:22:04

millimetres between touching someone

else's skates. The heartache is real

0:22:040:22:07

and you feel it but what a woman to

be able to stand up and be like, you

0:22:070:22:11

know what, I'm not done yet, I want

to go and smash it, I still want to

0:22:110:22:14

chase this gold medal.

Is that on

its way is inspirational, Woodsy.

0:22:140:22:19

Not just people watching who may not

do sport but a fellow athlete?

Yes,

0:22:190:22:23

absolutely. I always think every

single person is on their own path

0:22:230:22:29

and they have their own things they

are dealing with, whether it is

0:22:290:22:33

injuries or stuff like this. You

compete at so many different events

0:22:330:22:38

and you kill it every single time

and it comes round to the one you

0:22:380:22:42

want to do well at and it just

doesn't go your way. Everyone is at

0:22:420:22:45

a different place in their life on

in their career. So I think Dean

0:22:450:22:49

must adapt and open to everyone

else's going to help you deal with

0:22:490:22:54

your own stuff as well.

You have to

be tough in the mind, you really

0:22:540:22:57

have.

0:22:570:22:58

The opening ceremony was a stunning

display of technological mastery -

0:22:580:23:01

the closing ceremony

is traditionally more relaxed.

0:23:010:23:02

A chance for all the athletes

to party and celebrate

0:23:020:23:05

what they have achieved.

0:23:050:23:06

Billy Morgan was chosen to carry

the flag for Team GB.

0:23:060:23:11

Let's see the best of the last

hurrah of Pyeongchang 2018,

0:23:110:23:14

with commentary from Matt Pinsent

and John Hunt.

0:23:140:23:16

So, the final shots have been fired,

Stones curls, landings stomped and

0:23:190:23:24

toes well and truly looped, seven

days of intense competition waited

0:23:240:23:30

the traditional celebrations as

Pyeongchang says goodbye and Beijing

0:23:300:23:34

is about to say hello in 2022. The

count down much more live. You

0:23:340:23:39

remember the somewhat austere

ceremony countdown with the giant

0:23:390:23:44

bell. You can see all the venues

represented, as we and the crowd

0:23:440:23:50

here, 35,000, countdown to one.

Matthew Pinsent, we are expecting

0:23:500:23:57

some fun tonight. I think it will be

great, I'm looking forward to a bit

0:23:570:24:01

of Gangnam Style, the crowd getting

involved and the athletes as well,

0:24:010:24:05

when they come in and say their

farewell.

The accent very much on

0:24:050:24:10

winter turning to spring and hope

for the future. Traditional themes,

0:24:100:24:13

you will see plenty of them. A key

component of tonight is used,

0:24:130:24:17

without a shadow of a doubt we will

see acts are plenty from youngsters

0:24:170:24:24

tonight, very talented, some as

young as 11. And here, with more

0:24:240:24:28

than a nod to the painters and

decorators everywhere around the

0:24:280:24:32

world, we get our first visual. It

is colourful and it sets the tone.

0:24:320:24:38

Highly appropriate in Korea, skating

very much at the first centrepiece

0:25:260:25:34

of the closing ceremony.

0:25:340:25:43

You can probably work out what's

coming.

0:26:450:26:50

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:26:550:27:03

Ladies and gentlemen

please welcome

the athletes of the 23rd Olympic

0:27:190:27:23

Games!

A huge roar from the 35,000 people

0:27:230:27:30

here tonight. The first of the

athletes come into the arena.

0:27:300:27:43

Huge Canadian representatives. What

a Games they have had, Matthew.

0:28:020:28:08

Tessa Virtue and Scott

0:28:080:28:14

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir the

success story.

I think that skating

0:28:160:28:20

duo were a huge story back in

Canada. An amazing gold medal, and I

0:28:200:28:25

have to feel for them a little bit,

because all they have been asked

0:28:250:28:29

about since winning is, are you a

couple? And they have had to say, no

0:28:290:28:37

a thousand times. But it was an

amazing performance.

Absolutely

0:28:370:28:42

fantastic. Canada won 11 gold medals

and 29 all told. Third place for

0:28:420:28:48

them over all on the medals table.

Osman's bronze medal in the figure

0:28:480:28:55

skating to surpass their previous

record of 27 records. The five from

0:28:550:29:01

Ireland go through.

0:29:010:29:07

Marcel Hirscher, two golds. Again, a

good games for him. He must have

0:29:080:29:16

felt it wasn't going to happen.

I

know. He had a very average run in

0:29:160:29:21

on the circuit coming here, but then

history is littered with people who

0:29:210:29:26

either won a gold with no track

record, or had all the ingredients

0:29:260:29:34

and come to an Olympics and don't

quite do

0:29:340:29:36

Norway have just entered the stage.

The gaining number one 's spot. The

0:29:410:29:46

Germans had a fantastic games. But,

Norway top of the shop with 14 gold

0:29:460:29:54

medals and 39 medals all told.

And

the amazing statistic, doorway in

0:29:540:30:00

1988. They won zero gold medals. The

trajectory of them from zero to the

0:30:000:30:11

current day and the performance in

Pyeongchang is fantastic.

The flags

0:30:110:30:16

going through.

0:30:160:30:23

going through. For Frimpong, one of

the stars of the games. And the

0:30:230:30:27

United States. Their chef de mission

under fire about their lack of

0:30:270:30:33

success but everything is relative.

I mean, they have won 23 medals in

0:30:330:30:38

total, nine double medals. -- nine

gold medals. I think they are saying

0:30:380:30:49

it is there worst return in two

decades but they say they will go

0:30:490:30:57

home and recoup. And that they liked

the way Norway have performed.

This

0:30:570:31:01

is Great Britain.

0:31:010:31:06

is Great Britain. I thought that was

Laura Deas. Yes, there is Laura.

0:31:070:31:14

Fantastic. One the Bobsleigh

athletes behind Laura.

0:31:140:31:22

athletes behind Laura. It is getting

busy. Dom Parsons. Proudly wearing

0:31:220:31:26

his medal, as he should.

0:31:260:31:32

his medal, as he should.

Most

unaffected winner, I think, all

0:31:330:31:35

fortnight, Dom Parsons. He seemed to

take it in his stride.

Nothing

0:31:350:31:42

surprised him, certainly.

Billy

Morgan carrying the flag.

0:31:420:31:56

Morgan carrying the flag. That is

the Jamaicans. Much talk about...

0:31:560:32:01

The women's bobsleigh. That is the

Germans and the Dutch behind them, I

0:32:010:32:09

think, with the orange jackets. The

Dutch brought 34 athletes. More than

0:32:090:32:17

half are going home with medals.

Extraordinary.

Ireen Wust, brilliant

0:32:170:32:23

again. This is North and South

Korea. Once again coming in

0:32:230:32:29

together.

0:32:290:32:35

together. And the white flag with

the whole of the Korean peninsular

0:32:350:32:41

on it, that has become a much waved

emblem of the Olympics, especially

0:32:410:32:49

around women's ice hockey, the one

sport they competed as a team.

0:32:490:32:55

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome

the President of the International

0:33:200:33:24

Olympic Committee, accompanied by

the Mayor of Pyeongchang. And the

0:33:240:33:27

Mayor of Beijing. For the Olympic

flag hand over.

0:33:270:33:36

The countdown begins in earnest for

Beijing 2022.

0:33:540:34:01

Beijing 2022. The first city that

will host both these summer and the

0:34:040:34:12

Winter Games. If you remember

Beijing 2008, the Bird's Nest

0:34:120:34:21

stadium will be used in the Winter

Games, we are told. The Water Cube,

0:34:210:34:27

the swimming venue will be used for

curling. And discussions ongoing

0:34:270:34:34

about the Alpine events. The

Mountain Cluster is 150 miles away.

0:34:340:34:43

There is a high-speed rail link

going in. As here, all the Alpine

0:34:430:34:50

events will be on man-made snow.

That is not a problem. One of the

0:34:500:34:55

issues might be the height of the

mountain 's Beijing has at its

0:34:550:34:59

disposal.

0:34:590:35:08

disposal.

Ladies and gentlemen, the

Beijing 2022 presentation.

I am

0:35:080:35:14

looking forward to Beijing's

presentation.

They do ceremonies

0:35:140:35:19

very well. They have kept this very

much under wraps. A fascinating few

0:35:190:35:24

minutes ahead here.

0:35:240:35:31

minutes ahead here. It took four

seconds to see a panda.

0:39:370:39:42

The Olympic Games are

a homage to the past

0:39:510:39:52

and an act of faith

in the

0:39:520:39:54

future.

0:39:540:39:55

A true homage to the past was

the respect of the Olympic Truce,

0:39:550:39:58

just as it was 3,000 years

ago in ancient Olympia.

0:39:580:40:02

Dear athletes from the NOCs

of the Republic of Korea

0:40:020:40:06

and the Democratic People's

Republic of Korea,

0:40:060:40:09

with your joint march,

0:40:090:40:12

you have shared your faith

in a peaceful future with all of us.

0:40:120:40:20

You have shown how sport

brings people together

0:40:200:40:28

in our very fragile world.

0:40:290:40:30

You have shown how

sport builds bridges.

0:40:300:40:34

The IOC will continue

this Olympic dialogue,

0:40:340:40:38

even after we extinguish

the Olympic flame.

0:40:380:40:45

In this, we are driven

by our faith in the future.

0:40:450:40:53

These Olympic Winter Games

have introduced new events

0:40:540:40:56

that appeal to new generations.

0:40:560:41:01

Digital technology has enabled

more people in more countries

0:41:010:41:07

to see winter sports in more ways.

0:41:070:41:11

We have brought together

a record number

0:41:110:41:15

of National Olympic Committees to

participate in Olympic Winter Games.

0:41:150:41:22

Therefore I can truly say

0:41:220:41:28

the Olympic Winter Games

Pyeongchang 2018

0:41:280:41:32

are the Games of new horizons.

0:41:320:41:35

CHEERING

0:41:350:41:43

We are embracing these new horizons.

0:41:430:41:46

We offer our hand to everybody

0:41:460:41:50

to join forces

in this faith in the future.

0:41:500:41:58

Dear athletes, you are the best

ambassadors of our optimism.

0:41:580:42:04

Thank you for sharing it with us.

0:42:040:42:08

Thank you for your

competitive spirit.

0:42:080:42:11

Thank you for your fair play.

0:42:110:42:19

To our gracious hosts, the people

of Korea, I say thank you.

0:42:400:42:43

Athletes from the five continents

of the world and future host

0:42:430:42:46

countries of the Olympic Games

would like to join in this thanks.

In accordance with tradition,

I call upon the youth of the world

0:44:190:44:24

to assemble four years from now

in Beijing, People's Republic

0:44:240:44:31

of China, to celebrate

with all of us the 24th

0:44:310:44:36

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

And with that, the 23rd Winter

Olympics are over.

I have a look at

this photo. Billy Morgan being the

creative force

0:46:210:46:24

this photo. Billy Morgan being the

creative force he is decided there

0:46:240:46:25

was a different way of carrying the

flag in the closing ceremony, so he

0:46:250:46:29

put it on his chin, which we love.

Woodsy has left

0:46:290:46:33

put it on his chin, which we love.

Woodsy has left us

0:46:330:46:33

put it on his chin, which we love.

Woodsy has left us to be replaced by

0:46:330:46:35

the new chair of UK Olympic sport,

Katherine Grainger. Lovely to have

0:46:350:46:38

you with us. Still getting over the

shot of our favourite bare-chested

0:46:380:46:42

Tongan.

0:46:420:46:48

Tongan. Carrying on from the Summer

Olympics to the Winter Olympics and

0:46:480:46:52

he was so cool.

He was so excited,

he lifts the Olympics, the

0:46:520:46:58

excitement, that happiness.

I tell

you what, he has some resistance to

0:46:580:47:01

cold as well.

He must be freezing,

how he has got goose bumps!

What

0:47:010:47:07

does that mean, the sign they are

trying to make?

I thought it was

0:47:070:47:11

peace but don't quote me on that!

Let's say it is peace.

Unity or

0:47:110:47:17

something.

Like the infinity sign.

It is a bit, I will try and practice

0:47:170:47:25

at. Your reflection on Team GB's

performance at the Winter Olympics

0:47:250:47:29

and the wider message?

Team GB did a

brilliant job, best ever Winter

0:47:290:47:35

Olympics for the team, the most

successful we have ever seen. Five

0:47:350:47:38

medals. We said this before, with

every outstanding and exciting

0:47:380:47:43

performance there is always

heartbreak for other people. There

0:47:430:47:46

is always that mix, great and

inspirational stuff. And all those

0:47:460:47:50

performances that are hard to watch

an hard to live. That, overall,

0:47:500:47:54

brilliant performance.

And then bigger picture. It has been

0:47:540:48:01

a fantastic games as far as Korea

was concerned, they put on a

0:48:010:48:05

brilliant show. You never know what

every host nation will do. They

0:48:050:48:09

said, will it be the connection

between North and South, will open

0:48:090:48:13

up new communication points? None of

us know at this point but we have to

0:48:130:48:18

say was a very successful Games in

Korea.

It demonstrated we can change

0:48:180:48:24

our thinking. One athlete that might

change the philosophy of the way we

0:48:240:48:28

approach sport is Ester Ledecka,

winning medals on skis on a

0:48:280:48:33

snowboard.

And beat the first

athlete to do that in a single games

0:48:330:48:36

is amazing. They have different DNA.

No 1's skis and snowboards. You can

0:48:360:48:42

do them both recreationally and I

do, but to do it at that level...

0:48:420:48:46

Such a surprise. The cameraman had

to tell her she had won gold. Her

0:48:460:48:49

talent does surpass it. She stuck

her ground and didn't want to

0:48:490:48:59

specialise and said she could do

them both. Not only can she do both

0:48:590:49:01

those sports she said she could

potentially go to Tokyo and do

0:49:010:49:05

windsurfing. That is too much talent

for one person to have, share it

0:49:050:49:10

around it is.

And the skateboarding

element as well.

Transferable

0:49:100:49:13

skills.

So by the end of the Olympic

optician, Great Britain managed to

0:49:130:49:20

win a record five medals.

0:49:200:49:23

One more than Sochi four years ago.

0:49:230:49:25

Prior to Sochi, you have to go

back to 1924 when we

0:49:250:49:28

also won four medals.

0:49:280:49:31

also won four medals.

0:49:310:49:37

It has been a turnaround in fortunes

of winter sport but it does come at

0:49:370:49:41

a cost. Millions of pounds of

funding, a significant proportion

0:49:410:49:45

coming from the national Lottery.

Was it worth that question here is

0:49:450:49:48

Patrick Gearey.

0:49:480:49:53

This was the flip

that did the trick.

0:49:540:49:58

Billy Morgan, yes, that was massive!

0:49:580:50:00

Billy Morgan's bronze was Britain's

fifth medal of the Games.

0:50:000:50:02

It meant they'd hit their target

and broken a record.

0:50:020:50:05

The most medals this country has

ever managed at a Winter Olympics.

0:50:050:50:08

It's come with hard work,

but also lots of hard cash.

0:50:080:50:10

The body which allocates elite

sport funding, UK Sport,

0:50:100:50:15

put more than £28 million

into winter sports in the four years

0:50:150:50:18

running up to these Games.

0:50:180:50:26

That works out £5.6 million a medal.

0:50:260:50:27

That is how medals matter.

0:50:270:50:29

That's how they work out

how they get the money.

0:50:290:50:31

Lizzy Yarnold, guided

from heptathlon to skeleton

0:50:310:50:36

thanks to a UK Sport scheme.

0:50:360:50:37

When she showed potential,

they funded her.

0:50:370:50:39

Gold followed in Sochi.

0:50:390:50:40

Lizzy Yarnold is the

Olympic champion, oh

0:50:400:50:42

my goodness!

0:50:420:50:46

They stepped up the skeleton

funding to £6.5 million.

0:50:460:50:48

That is a gold-medal winning run!

0:50:480:50:50

We are looking at a two-time

Olympic champion!

0:50:500:50:58

It is a formula that has

helped British sport rise

0:51:040:51:06

from 36th in Atlanta

to

0:51:060:51:07

second in Rio, and has led

to unprecedented success

0:51:070:51:10

in this Winter Olympics but sport

doesn't always do

0:51:100:51:12

predictable outcomes.

0:51:120:51:13

Short-track speed skating

is the standout example.

0:51:130:51:16

Elise Christie was a triple world

champion, so her sport got more

0:51:160:51:23

than £4.7 million

to deliver a medal.

0:51:230:51:24

But you can't bank on bad

luck and slip-ups.

0:51:240:51:27

Winter Games are uncertain terrain.

0:51:270:51:28

Meanwhile, sports like ice hockey

and Luge don't get any sports money

0:51:280:51:31

because medals are thought

to be out of reach.

0:51:310:51:33

Should medals be our

only guiding light?

0:51:330:51:38

Some want more money allocated

to recreational sports

0:51:380:51:40

like basketball.

0:51:400:51:43

The old-fashioned way

was to fund yourself, which is

0:51:430:51:50

what Mica Moore and Mica McNeill did

after their funding was withdrawn.

0:51:500:51:56

Nobody has been eighth

at Olympic Games, but these two have

0:51:560:51:58

claimed that position!

0:51:580:52:01

What a Games for the pair

who are only here

0:52:010:52:03

because of the generosity

of the British public.

0:52:030:52:05

They used crowdfunding

to help them get to

0:52:050:52:07

Pyeongchang and finished eighth,

better than their male counterparts

0:52:070:52:09

who are funded.

0:52:090:52:10

What could have they achieved

with proper backing?

0:52:100:52:12

Their performance made

some statement and

0:52:120:52:13

begged a question about how

we fund our sports.

0:52:130:52:20

Katherine Grainger is one of the

people that can answer those

0:52:200:52:23

questions. Amy, from an athlete was

my point of view, how much pressure

0:52:230:52:27

do you feel to perform on the behalf

of the whole of your sport?

You are

0:52:270:52:32

very aware of it and yet we all know

there is still no greater pressure

0:52:320:52:35

than an athlete puts on themselves,

because you know you have put in all

0:52:350:52:38

those hours of trading. In Frank de

Boer we knew our medal target was

0:52:380:52:42

one medal from the games so we all

knew as an athlete it was on our

0:52:420:52:46

heads to bring home a medal in order

to maintain and keep the funding, to

0:52:460:52:50

be able to bring through the next

generation. The gold medal in

0:52:500:52:54

Vancouver enabled Liz at and Laura

Deas to get their medal. It went

0:52:540:53:00

into the programme. It is one of

those things, it is Catch-22, if you

0:53:000:53:04

don't have the money, you can't get

the medals. If you don't have those

0:53:040:53:07

medals, you don't get the money.

And

you don't keep the money. Those who

0:53:070:53:14

have traditionally been successful

are in danger of losing it if they

0:53:140:53:18

don't win at the games.

I have to

clarify, I thought that as an

0:53:180:53:21

athlete. In rowing I didn't know

what the medal target was most of

0:53:210:53:27

the time and I said I didn't care.

You want to go out for yourself,

0:53:270:53:30

your performance, that was always

the focus. But until I started

0:53:300:53:34

working in it. It is... The funding

that goes into investment is in as a

0:53:340:53:38

reward or punishment of the result.

For example, Elise Christie, a

0:53:380:53:43

question of what will happen now

with short track. There was no medal

0:53:430:53:48

in four years ago in Sochi but a lot

of money went in it in the last four

0:53:480:53:53

years. Investments get mate looking

forward from this point, the

0:53:530:53:56

potential of the athletes and the

athletes in it. Not specifically the

0:53:560:54:02

result, if we do or don't win and

what it means for funding.

What we

0:54:020:54:06

don't do is reward financially

biathlete themselves. Other

0:54:060:54:08

countries do.

Only three countries

don't, us, Sweden and Norway. Every

0:54:080:54:14

other country gives you a bonus that

gold medal. It is interesting, but

0:54:140:54:18

nations with the lowest GDP tend to

award the most. Up there is

0:54:180:54:22

Kazakhstan, they give 200 200,000.

Then Italy. They give money for gold

0:54:220:54:30

and silver but nothing for bronze,

they don't rate a bronze medal at

0:54:300:54:34

all-star point it is interesting,

different ways.

0:54:340:54:36

So as we say farewell

to the Winter Olympics,

0:54:360:54:38

the sport on the BBC in 2018 just

keeps on coming.

0:54:380:54:41

# The world is my stage, I have it

made...

0:54:440:54:51

This is a superb performance!

0:54:510:54:55

What a champion here at Wimbledon!

Wow, wow!

0:55:020:55:11

This is it, the pinnacle!

0:55:110:55:16

That is all to come but for the snow

and ice, it is over.

0:55:160:55:21

Thanks for your company

over the last 16 days.

0:55:210:55:24

Thanks to all the experts

who have made it make sense,

0:55:240:55:26

the commentators who have told

the stories, the engineers

0:55:260:55:30

and technicians and the production

team in South Korea

0:55:300:55:32

and here in the UK

who have brought the stunning action

0:55:320:55:35

into our homes and most

of all to the athletes who have

0:55:350:55:38

competed in Pyeongchang.

0:55:380:55:39

Thank you for

brightening our winter.

0:55:390:55:40

Some of them have dreams

still to be fulfilled,

0:55:400:55:42

others have realised them.

0:55:420:55:43

All of them have tried

their hearts out.

# There must be lights burning

brighter somewhere

# There must be peace

and understanding sometime

0:56:520:56:57

# Strong winds of promise that

will blow away the doubt and fear

0:56:570:57:04

# If I can dream of a warmer sun

0:57:040:57:11

oh why won't that sun appear

Billy Morgan has got a bronze medal!

0:57:220:57:26

I'm crying!

# We are lost in a cloud

0:57:300:57:33

# With too much rain

0:57:330:57:38

# We are trapped in a world

0:57:380:57:42

# That has got all the pain...

0:57:420:57:46

Christie tumbles again!

Shaun White is the gold medallist!

# Still I am sure that the answer

has got to come somehow

0:58:110:58:18

# Out there in the dark

there's a beckoning candle

0:58:180:58:25

# And while I can think,

while I can talk

# While I can stand,

while I can walk

0:58:300:58:38

Dom Parsons has his medal!

0:58:420:58:44
