Previously at the Winter Olympics...

Elise Christie safely through to the

0:00:090:00:17

quarterfinals! And the hosts have

gold!

Oh, James!

Today was not my

0:00:170:00:23

day.

A shame for Billy Morgan.

Marit

Bjoergen has created history but so

0:00:230:00:32

has Sweden's Charlotte Kalla.

0:00:320:00:39

As British sports fans,

we are used to seeing our events

0:01:020:01:04

affected by the weather.

0:01:040:01:06

Wimbledon, Test cricket,

the FA Cup third round.

0:01:060:01:08

Well, the Winter Olympics

is no different.

0:01:080:01:14

Strong winds gusting at over 45

mph have today played

0:01:140:01:16

havoc with the schedule.

0:01:160:01:17

The last place you want to be in

high winds is halfway up a mountain.

0:01:170:01:21

Join us instead inside the cosy

confines of our studio.

0:01:210:01:27

Ben Kilner has competed at two

Olympics on his snowboard.

0:01:270:01:30

And Chemmy Alcott, who thundered

downhill at four Olympics.

0:01:300:01:35

The wind was a massive problem.

Really disappointing, the highly

0:01:350:01:40

anticipated men's downhill, the fast

speeds and big air is postponed

0:01:400:01:44

until Thursday.

And the slopestyle.

The women's slopestyle has been

0:01:440:01:48

cancelled and the final will be

tomorrow, two runs.

Everyone goes

0:01:480:01:54

through to the final which includes

GB's Aimee Fuller, good news for

0:01:540:01:57

her. Lots of other great sporting

action, though. This is what is

0:01:570:02:03

coming up.

0:02:030:02:05

They're braving the elements

in the men's snowboard slopestyle.

0:02:050:02:07

Canada's Max Parrot leads

after qualification.

0:02:070:02:09

This looks like hard work.

0:02:090:02:14

We follow Andrew Musgrave as he goes

cross-country in the 30km skiathlon.

0:02:140:02:16

Leading after his first two runs,

super luger Felix Loch's on track

0:02:160:02:19

for his third straight gold.

0:02:190:02:22

Time to pump the humps,

the moguls' mogul in the womens

0:02:220:02:25

event is Britteny Cox.

0:02:250:02:26

The girl from Down Under

is looking to go up over.

0:02:260:02:31

But first, it's the men's snowboard

slopestyle and the men's competition

0:02:310:02:33

started in the early hours of this

morning before the wind

0:02:330:02:36

really whipped up.

0:02:360:02:37

Let's join our all-star cast

of Jenny Jones, Ed Leigh,

0:02:370:02:40

Tim Warwood and Jamie Nicholls,

now in the commentary box rather

0:02:400:02:43

than in a competition

that is truly breathtaking.

0:02:430:02:46

You're going to see computer games

snowboarding from the world's very

0:02:510:02:54

best riders.

Absolutely ridiculous.

Yes, really nice!

Boom!

Settle

0:02:540:03:06

yourselves, Jamie Nicholls need this

run.

Making it look so easy, needs

0:03:060:03:11

to put this down, here. Massive.

Frontside 12.

Oh, Jamie!

If you

0:03:110:03:20

could bottle disappointment, it

would look like that.

Disappointment

0:03:200:03:23

for Rowan Coultas. Billy Morgan,

second run.

0:03:230:03:35

No, Billy!

So close to hanging it

on, it was literally by the hairs on

0:03:350:03:42

my chin, could not make it to the

second jump, pretty devastating.

0:03:420:03:47

Unfortunately it was not to beef

Team GB, Jamie Nicholls, Rowan

0:03:470:03:51

Coultas and Billy Morgan did not

make it through but we are here

0:03:510:03:55

today for the Olympic slopestyle

finals. There's a lively crowd down

0:03:550:03:58

there and it is going to be absolute

blinder.

0:03:580:04:07

COMMENTATOR:

Now the surprise

package, Carlos Garcia Knight,

0:04:150:04:20

coming out of New Zealand.

Where he

writes, he's incredibly consistent.

0:04:200:04:24

The New

0:04:240:04:30

The New Zealanders have got an

airbag fitted outside of their

0:04:300:04:32

training camp and Carlos and his

team-mates Deanne Collins could use

0:04:320:04:36

that a great eventful -- effect.

Love that rail trick.

Second jump,

0:04:360:04:42

huge backside 12, wind assisted

through the air.

The back-to-back

0:04:420:04:47

12s yesterday, the same again today.

My goodness, first place. The gods

0:04:470:04:52

were with him.

Wow! Time to capture

the dream. This man is the fairy

0:04:520:05:02

tale of 2018, Road in Sochi with a

broken rib and still took a bronze

0:05:020:05:08

medal. He's had two horrendous

injuries, a broken femur in 2016,

0:05:080:05:14

broke in humorous, jaw and raids in

2017, but he is still at the very

0:05:140:05:17

top of the sport. He's battled his

way back and this is the first of

0:05:170:05:22

three runs.

Super good flows through

those first two sections. Really

0:05:220:05:30

nice from him. Then we see this huge

gap 270. Couldn't get it.

0:05:300:05:35

Uncharacteristic mistake.

Jumped

two, the double cork front 1080.

0:05:350:05:43

Three rotations, upside down twice

during that and he is going for it.

0:05:430:05:49

Oh, my goodness!

You could see the

way the arms opened up on the last

0:05:490:05:54

take-off, grabbing for everything he

had. We come in for the Norwegian,

0:05:540:05:59

Marcus Kleveland. He has entered

three slopestyle contests this year

0:05:590:06:05

and won three slopestyle contests

this year. There is no one in the

0:06:050:06:09

world better than Marcus Kleveland.

On paper.

You jinxed him, there,

0:06:090:06:16

because he caught the tail as he did

the 270 do that. Did not seem to

0:06:160:06:22

affect him but again! Did he mean

that? Just tucking in for the wind

0:06:220:06:27

come here. Having to open up on the

1260 to stop the rotation. Speed is

0:06:270:06:32

his friend. Has he got the triple?

Oh! The biggest we have seen so far.

0:06:320:06:43

The surprise is Carlos Garcia Knight

from New Zealand, total Lone Wolf,

0:06:430:06:45

out of nowhere, with a great run.

0:06:450:06:55

Staale Sandbech map this is style

personified when it comes to

0:07:020:07:09

snowboarding. -- Staale Sandbech.

Through the bowl, into the kickers,

0:07:090:07:14

this is where it really starts to

count.

Frontside 1440.

He has held

0:07:140:07:19

an! Frontside 12.

Absolutely

massive.

0:07:190:07:31

massive.

Wow.

Huge 1260! Frontside

14 and back-to-back 1260s, the man

0:07:310:07:38

from Norway.

Second run in the men's

slopestyle final for the American

0:07:380:07:45

protege, Red Gerard. Burst onto the

scene aged 11. We have watched the

0:07:450:07:52

boy become a man in front of our

eyes. This is the biggest test he

0:07:520:07:55

has faced yet.

360 off the down bar.

This run, really nice, huge

0:07:550:08:03

frontside grabbed over the hitching

post.

The nose bone. He does not

0:08:030:08:09

have heavy enough bones to make the

speed, here.

Definitely had speed,

0:08:090:08:14

there.

Needed, too big. -- E did. He

just needs to clean up this run and

0:08:140:08:23

he should see a considerable hike in

his scores. What he's doing is good.

0:08:230:08:33

Oh, really nice, so difficult, yeah.

The tail slide 450 and then kind of

0:08:330:08:38

a wrong way air to normal on the

hip. He looks uncharacteristically

0:08:380:08:43

sketchy at the moment.

It is always

so perfect with Mark McMorris, we

0:08:430:08:49

are used to seeing it just flow for

him and it is not at the moment, he

0:08:490:08:53

looks like he's forcing it.

Treble.

Front trouble, well held.

He held

0:08:530:09:00

on.

Is it the back trouble?

He's

always got... Anything you could do,

0:09:000:09:06

Marcus Kleveland, I can do.

We've

just finished the second run and no

0:09:060:09:11

surprise, Mark McMorris is in first

place with a great run with 81240

0:09:110:09:16

and a 16 treble on the bottom which

was awesome. However, some of the

0:09:160:09:19

guys are really struggling with the

speed today and two of the

0:09:190:09:24

frontrunners are actually not even

putting down a run yet so it's all

0:09:240:09:27

to play for still in the and final

run. -- in the third and final run.

0:09:270:09:40

The heat just keeps on coming,

Carlos Garcia Knight, who came

0:09:430:09:47

second in qualifying yesterday, and

then led the scores for the first

0:09:470:09:51

run of finals today.

Now,...

Oh, no!

That is the end of his Olympics.

Red

0:09:510:10:03

Gerard is about to drop in for his

third and final run. The boy needs

0:10:030:10:07

to land something. He can do this.

Red Gerard, the young rider on whom

0:10:070:10:16

all American hopes are pinned. This

is... Look at that, a big nose bone

0:10:160:10:22

over the goalpost.

Shift Apple

three, that is your new desktop

0:10:220:10:28

screensaver. Through the bowl.

If he

can't see or hear, he is letting the

0:10:280:10:37

nose of the board clip the rail on

the way over, tucking up. He needs

0:10:370:10:44

speed through here.

Slow switch

backside. 1260. Much better speed.

0:10:440:10:50

Bound the pace and he is taking off

halfway along the panel, landed that

0:10:500:10:55

one.

Pumping for speed, you could

seem willing it on.

He's got a

0:10:550:11:00

triple.

Yes!

Yes!

Red Gerard is the

cat amongst the pigeons.

He's done

0:11:000:11:09

it! Red Gerard has stomped a great

run, let's see what his school is.

0:11:090:11:14

Look at the crowd.

Imagine the

Norwegians and the Canadians,

0:11:140:11:19

putting all of their weight behind

slopestyle teams and twice out of

0:11:190:11:23

nowhere the gold is snatched by the

Americans.

Oh! My goodness! He's

0:11:230:11:32

into first, Red Gerard for America.

Three riders left to drop, the burst

0:11:320:11:38

of them is Mark McMorris, the most

successful slopestyle rider in

0:11:380:11:41

history.

Really nice top rail

section. 450 out there.

So

0:11:410:11:48

technical.

A big gap from the hip.

Oh! He needs all the speed he can

0:11:480:11:54

get, here. One, two, three, it's

there, it's absolutely huge. Now

0:11:540:12:01

hold your nerve, Mark McMorris.

No!

Oh, no! He's down. He's fallen. Mark

0:12:010:12:11

McMorris will not win gold. Red

Gerard, the youngster, is still in

0:12:110:12:16

gold medal position right now.

Now

strap yourselves in, Marcus

0:12:160:12:21

Kleveland, this kid failed to put

down a clean run in the first and

0:12:210:12:25

second descents, can he do it now

when it matters? Pressure is

0:12:250:12:30

immense.

He's literally taking a

bath in a pressure cooker right now.

0:12:300:12:37

This is what he's doing.

Unbelievable. Huge switch. He's

0:12:370:12:42

going to absolutely feeling this.

Look how slow he is, he is so

0:12:420:12:49

relaxed.

One, two, three.

He's gone,

he's gone!

Marcus Kleveland sat

0:12:490:12:56

down. That's it, Red Gerard is in

first position still. Oh, my

0:12:560:13:01

goodness, Max Parrot still to go.

Backside 360, 180 off. He's been

0:13:010:13:09

flawless through the rails.

Proved a

lot of people wrong with the rail

0:13:090:13:13

sections today.

Needs to take it

easy now on the backside rodeo.

0:13:130:13:20

Oh...

Here we go, hold your breath,

one, two, three and a half, that is

0:13:200:13:26

the 1260 out of the way. Is the

speed with him? Just the double.

0:13:260:13:32

He's played safe. He is not unveiled

the treble.

0:13:320:13:40

the treble.

Oh!

Backside triple cork

1440 to finish. What do the judges

0:13:400:13:46

do now?

I've got a bailing we are

looking at one of the biggest heists

0:13:460:13:51

in snowboard history. LAUGHTER

This is Red Gerard's ma'am, how you

0:13:510:13:55

feeling?

Ecstatic! We have the whole

family here. I'm just ecstatic.

Max

0:13:550:14:04

Parrot is waiting, Red Gerard,

Marcus Kleveland, Staale Sandbech,

0:14:040:14:06

Mark McMorris all waiting. 86!

Silver medal position for Max

0:14:060:14:13

Parrot, the American 17-year-old,

Red Gerard, barnstorming the men's

0:14:130:14:18

slopestyle finals! CHEERING

0:14:180:14:25

The men's slopestyle snowboard gold

medal will return to the USA.

You

0:14:290:14:37

have just witnessed something

amazing. How are you thinking?

0:14:370:14:41

Honestly, my mind is blown. I'm so

happy for him, and Mark and all the

0:14:410:14:45

boys. It just really let my fire.

I'm excited to go ride this bargain

0:14:450:14:52

hopefully qualify for the finals.

It's absolutely an ecstatic

0:14:520:14:57

atmosphere here at the moment.

Amazing result for Red Gerard. I'm

0:14:570:15:01

pretty sure he won't be able to

believe it himself. At 17, he's come

0:15:010:15:06

away a gold medallist. Oh, exciting!

I was surprised or even make it to

0:15:060:15:13

the finals of the Olympics and to

get first is above me. I don't even

0:15:130:15:17

know what's going on, to be honest,

right now.

0:15:170:15:24

He's the second youngest of seven

and then, that was the UFA's first

0:15:240:15:31

goal medal but talk us through this

run and what Read does when the

0:15:310:15:36

goal medal but talk us through this

run and what Read does when the

0:15:360:15:36

pressure is on?

The differences he

takes a bit of a unique line. The

0:15:360:15:41

rail features are slightly

different. He goes on to this

0:15:410:15:44

feature here, which no one else did,

transfers across onto another rail

0:15:440:15:50

feature, and that's what the judges

are looking for. They are looking

0:15:500:15:53

for something different, that stands

out from the rest.

Not only is he

0:15:530:15:59

young, he's the first Winter

Olympics medallist born in the 21st

0:15:590:16:04

century, 17. There's nothing of him.

He is five weighs eight stone, four,

0:16:040:16:12

so he's a young gun, not fully

grown.

He went into this in last

0:16:120:16:17

place, this last run. He had to put

everything on the line. He had to

0:16:170:16:22

stomp it.

Absolutely, when the

pressure is on you put in that bit

0:16:220:16:28

more effort.

He started snowboarding

aged two and by the age of six could

0:16:280:16:33

do a standing backflip am so he's

been a really fast am a young

0:16:330:16:37

developer.

The difference between

the youngsters that are growing up

0:16:370:16:42

now, when I started snowboarding,

half these tricks weren't even

0:16:420:16:44

invented at the time. Read is coming

to a world where there's all these

0:16:440:16:49

tricks available and he's so young

and is copying.

He's got a lovely

0:16:490:16:55

attitude, mocks himself beautifully.

He took this photo on Instagram,

0:16:550:16:59

obviously this was taken only a

couple of weeks ago! He looks like

0:16:590:17:02

the Milky bar kid! So sweet.

Would

you have said that kid would have a

0:17:020:17:09

goal medal round his neck tonight?

There

0:17:090:17:11

goal medal round his neck tonight?

There will be loads of people

0:17:110:17:13

watching this, thinking I want to

try that, go to the website and get

0:17:130:17:17

inspired but how did you start?

I

started, I live up in Scotland and

0:17:170:17:21

one winter when it snowed I decided

to head down to my local golf course

0:17:210:17:26

and my mum bought me a little

snowboard and that's how it started.

0:17:260:17:29

It was purely on snow. From there

on, she booked me lessons up in the

0:17:290:17:35

mountains but I think kids across

the UK these days are heading to the

0:17:350:17:39

local snow domes and that's where we

get started.

I've seen them

0:17:390:17:43

practising on Hemel Hempstead in the

rails and everything. The women's

0:17:430:17:48

slopestyle qualification was

cancelled so it's straight through

0:17:480:17:50

to the final for all of the women,

happening at 1am, no Katie Ormerod

0:17:500:17:55

sadly after her fuel fracture but 26

will go including Great Britain's

0:17:550:17:59

Aimee Fuller. A lot can happen in 24

hours.

Let's go.

What a 24 hours we

0:17:590:18:07

had.

Oh!

I feel really pumped.

0:18:070:18:20

Cheerio.

0:18:200:18:23

Thanks for watching.

We're going to

move on to cross-country skiing now

0:18:310:18:34

once the weather won't be a problem

for Britain's Andrew Musgrave, who

0:18:340:18:38

lived in Alaska for five years

before moving to Aberdeenshire. He

0:18:380:18:42

won the overall Norwegian title four

years ago. That's the equivalent of

0:18:420:18:45

the Norwegian hitting a double

century at Lord's, so pretty

0:18:450:18:49

unlikely. This morning he went in

the 30 K skiathlon. Skiathlon is a

0:18:490:19:01

brutal test of lungs,

0:19:010:19:02

heart and

0:19:020:19:03

skill and skis. It examines two

skiing techniques, classical, one

0:19:030:19:10

ski first gliding forwards, then

they'd change skis and poles with

0:19:100:19:13

the clock still ticking. Now it's

time for freestyle with the ski,

0:19:130:19:18

angle and technique similar to ice

skating but with more snow and fewer

0:19:180:19:21

sequins. The men will cover 30

gruelling kilometres. Everything is

0:19:210:19:26

left in the snow. Andrew Musgrave

has a chance of a medal in this, but

0:19:260:19:30

a Norwegian and two Swiss start as

favourites.

0:19:300:19:39

After confessing to overtraining for

Sochi, skiing in his world is like a

0:19:410:19:47

tranquillised badger, Scottish

cross-country skier Andrew Musgrave

0:19:470:19:49

is out to make amends. Four years on

and

0:19:490:19:52

is out to make amends. Four years on

and four

0:19:520:19:52

is out to make amends. Four years on

and four years wiser way here at the

0:19:520:19:54

30 K skiathlon, a good result here

will set Musgrave up for his

0:19:540:19:59

favoured event, the 15 K freestyle

later this week. One person who

0:19:590:20:06

certainly knows how Andrew is

feeling right now with his sister,

0:20:060:20:09

Posy. You competed in Sochi. This is

the first time watching as a

0:20:090:20:15

spectator, feeling nervous?

I am,

it's worse to be on this side and

0:20:150:20:19

watching rather than be competing

yourself because at that point you

0:20:190:20:22

are in the zone.

Andrew is better at

skating. The fact the skating is

0:20:220:20:27

second, will that be an advantage?

It can be. He has improved in

0:20:270:20:32

classic in the last few years and

this helps. He has to stay with the

0:20:320:20:35

pack on the

0:20:350:20:44

pack on the classic but not burn too

much energy, so if he can manage to

0:20:440:20:48

do that he has a good shot in the

second half of the race in the

0:20:480:20:52

skating.

What's the best we can

expect from Andrew?

He's ranked

0:20:520:20:54

tenth. Once you are the top ten

anything can happen. I don't want to

0:20:540:20:57

get too excited and go ahead of

myself but if he gets a good day,

0:20:570:21:00

who knows where he could end up.

The

skiers have left their skating skis

0:21:000:21:04

in this transition area. Musgrave is

in box ten, because that's his big

0:21:040:21:07

number. They are in the corral,

getting ready to go. Over to your

0:21:070:21:12

commentators for this meant's 30 K

skiathlon, Ollie Williams and Rob

0:21:120:21:16

Walker.

0:21:160:21:23

COMMENTATOR:

There's Andrew Musgrave proudly

0:21:230:21:28

representing Great Britain. Can he

produced the greatest performance

0:21:280:21:31

we've ever seen from a British

cross-country skier? We all very

0:21:310:21:35

much hope so. The first event, the

men's cross-country programme, the

0:21:350:21:40

30 kilometres skiathlon and they are

under way. This is the raise we have

0:21:400:21:44

been looking forward to for the last

few months bearing in mind perform

0:21:440:21:48

some of the very best in the world.

-- bearing in mind the form of some

0:21:480:21:54

of the very best in the world.

Seven, that was Kruger who fell, a

0:21:540:22:01

real shame. That's a real shock.

He

trips on the right ski. It looks

0:22:010:22:07

like there's a collision. You are on

top of each other.

The gap is 18

0:22:070:22:15

seconds at the moment. For Synman

Hickstead Kruger. V-style is a

0:22:150:22:24

discipline where Andrew Musgrave

feels most comfortable so if he's

0:22:240:22:29

there or thereabouts then maybe he

could see something very special

0:22:290:22:31

indeed -- freestyle.

0:22:310:22:38

indeed -- freestyle. Pacemaking

duties at the front. Andrew Musgrave

0:22:380:22:40

is back in around seventh or eighth

place, certainly up with that group.

0:22:400:22:47

You can see Synman Hickstead Kruger

desperately trying to work to the

0:22:470:22:52

front because he knows he can't have

any impact unless he gets onto this

0:22:520:22:56

break on the front line right now.

As they come in towards the

0:22:560:22:59

completion of the first of their

four classical circuits...

There's

0:22:590:23:06

goes Musgrave out of the stadium

from lap one. It's difficult

0:23:060:23:09

blustery conditions, a couple of

crashes that Musgrave managed to

0:23:090:23:13

avoid getting caught up in and it's

really about conserving energy in

0:23:130:23:16

this classic section of the race.

Britain's Callum Smith also coming

0:23:160:23:21

through. He's just at the tail end

of the pack there as well.

0:23:210:23:29

of the pack there as well.

There's

Krueger, bib seven, this is better

0:23:290:23:31

from the Norwegian. If you could get

back in the mix for a medal it would

0:23:310:23:35

be extraordinary.

0:23:350:23:41

be extraordinary. It's not quite a

Formula One pit stop, but it will be

0:23:410:23:45

important. It's a bit like

triathlon. You don't win the race in

0:23:450:23:49

transition, but you can certainly

give yourself a problem if it

0:23:490:23:54

doesn't go smoothly. Andrew Musgrave

safely through. Krueger has almost

0:23:540:23:57

caught that entire gap up. That's

excellent work from the Norwegian.

0:23:570:24:02

Coming out of the ski exchange,

different body language from

0:24:020:24:05

Musgrave. He's doing his preferred

technique now and he's really going

0:24:050:24:08

for it.

Look at Andrew Musgrave

coming through there. Great skiing

0:24:080:24:15

by the Britain. There's Andrew

Musgrave in the centre off your

0:24:150:24:21

picture, right in the mix with the

very best cross-country skiers in

0:24:210:24:26

the world, and the Britain is in

with a chance of a Winter Olympics

0:24:260:24:31

medal in cross-country skiing! This

is incredible! Krueger is leading.

0:24:310:24:37

He was flat on his face in the first

200 metres of the race and somehow

0:24:370:24:41

managed to claw his way back into

contention and into the lead.

0:24:410:24:46

Krueger from Musgrave, come on,

Musgrave! Krueger clearly feels as

0:24:460:24:51

though going hard with four K to go

with his best chance of getting on

0:24:510:24:57

the podium. A few athletes coming

past Andrew Musgrave, just needs to

0:24:570:25:02

hold on here, the Britain. And now a

few metres open up between Andrew

0:25:020:25:09

Musgrave and the men who are

currently not battling for three

0:25:090:25:12

medals, battling for two.

0:25:120:25:18

medals, battling for two. It's

Norway one, two and three at the

0:25:180:25:20

moment. They are definitely closing

down on Krueger aren't they have a

0:25:200:25:24

monstrous climb still to contend

between now and the finish. Here it

0:25:240:25:29

is, he is seriously hurting now. His

lead has been halved, from 22

0:25:290:25:37

seconds, 211. Norway occupy all

three medal positions at the moment.

0:25:370:25:40

Andrew Musgrave around seventh place

at the moment. It's been a

0:25:400:25:46

sensational performance from Andrew

Musgrave, absolutely phenomenal so

0:25:460:25:48

far.

0:25:480:25:53

far. Krueger, having fallen right at

the start of the race, is going to

0:25:530:25:56

finish the day in a blaze of glory!

Absolutely incredible recovery

0:25:560:26:02

against one of the best skiathlon

fields ever assembled. Krueger is

0:26:020:26:10

the Winter Olympic champion. He was

down at the start but he wasn't out,

0:26:100:26:14

he didn't give up. It's someone,

two, three for the Norwegians --

0:26:140:26:23

it's a warm, two, three for the

Norwegians. A sensational effort

0:26:230:26:27

from the Britain. Andrew Musgrave in

seven, Musgrave announces his

0:26:270:26:32

arrival at the top of the sport and

says, we Brits can be world class as

0:26:320:26:38

well.

What a race, what a result.

Will he be happy?

He will be

0:26:380:26:43

disappointed to be that close for so

long and not quite make it but 70s

0:26:430:26:47

amazing. He should be really proud.

We've never had a result like this,

0:26:470:26:52

top ten, incredible.

Absolutely, the

best ever result was Andrew in

0:26:520:26:58

Sochi, 29th, in Sochi, so to jump

those places is incredible.

Here he

0:26:580:27:04

is.

Thanks.

Well done, Andrew.

0:27:040:27:10

those places is incredible.

Here he

is.

Thanks.

Well done, Andrew. How

0:27:100:27:12

are you feeling?

A bit disappointed,

to be honest. I thought going out

0:27:120:27:17

when I had a lap and a half to go I

was feeling good, feeling confident

0:27:170:27:21

and I thought I would be able to get

a medal and I was feeling really

0:27:210:27:25

good and then just tried to keep up

on the last lap and went a bit hard

0:27:250:27:30

and slipped back through the field.

Yeah.

Has it set you up for the 15

0:27:300:27:35

K?

Might form seems to be good. The

15 K should be my best event. I

0:27:350:27:41

should be in a fight for a medal and

hopefully go faster than today.

What

0:27:410:27:46

do you need to do to beat the

Norwegians?

Go faster down their!

0:27:460:27:53

Good answer, correct, go faster than

them. Seventh place the best ever

0:27:530:27:57

finish by a mile at a rich -ish

cross-country skier and yet he was

0:27:570:28:02

devastated.

He was so down, he was

so close. He was pulling that whole

0:28:020:28:07

field. Yes, Krueger was in front but

he was pulling everyone towards him

0:28:070:28:11

the whole time and no one helped

him. They are not going to help him,

0:28:110:28:14

but he is the Brit out there on his

own where is the Norwegians have

0:28:140:28:18

strength in numbers.

They can

collect Krueger go because it still

0:28:180:28:22

Norway winning gold and Andrew

Musgrave bases himself in Norway, he

0:28:220:28:29

speaks fluent Norwegian. Is adopted

their culture and spirit.

He knows

0:28:290:28:33

what he needs to do to achieve Gold

and that's purely on what is on his

0:28:330:28:37

mind, he wants gold and he can go

home happy. Until then he seems to

0:28:370:28:41

be putting so much into his

training.

You seen him change

0:28:410:28:47

physically?

He's turned into a

mature athlete.

It was extraordinary

0:28:470:28:52

what happened with the gold

medallist, Krueger, down he goes,

0:28:520:28:57

number seven, about fourth, in the

middle row. It's his fault it

0:28:570:29:02

happens. He the balances.

He tips

forward, loses the grip and his ski

0:29:020:29:07

and takes a few out. The rest of the

fields did well to go round him, but

0:29:070:29:12

he got the bit between his teeth, he

was frothing and attacked from the

0:29:120:29:15

back.

It fired him up. An amazing

performance. Musgrave, his better

0:29:150:29:21

event to come, the 15 K. Its

freestyle this year, they change it

0:29:210:29:27

every four years. Freestylers his

favoured.

Yes, he stands a strong

0:29:270:29:31

chance and you can see by his

performance going up in seventh

0:29:310:29:35

place compared to the last Olympics,

his fitness is very much progressed.

0:29:350:29:39

I'm going to make prediction, I

think cross-country skiing is going

0:29:390:29:42

to be the big hit of these games.

You can do it in the UK, roller

0:29:420:29:47

skiing. There is a roller ski club

in Scotland and London, so we can

0:29:470:29:52

train in the UK for this.

If you

want to, get inspired is how you

0:29:520:29:57

find out more about it. Andrew's

best chance for a medal in the 15 K,

0:29:570:30:03

next Friday at 6am, so tune in for

that. Well worth getting up early

0:30:030:30:06

for, it will go on for awhile, 6am

is when it starts and you need to

0:30:060:30:11

see the start because they sometimes

over.

0:30:110:30:16

Can Felix Loch slide

into the history books?

0:30:160:30:18

The super luger's looking

to defend his double Olympic crown.

0:30:180:30:21

They've got shock

absorbers for legs.

0:30:210:30:25

Canadian Justine Lafour-Dupointe

is also looking to defend her title

0:30:250:30:28

from Sochi in the women's moguls.

0:30:280:30:32

It's the team event in the figure

skating, where it's a bit

0:30:320:30:35

of everything with short

and free programmes.

0:30:350:30:37

The big names include

Russia's Evgenia Medvedeva.

0:30:370:30:45

Are we about to see the emergence of

a new superstar? This guy could rule

0:30:470:30:53

Whistler. Absolutely steaming over

the line, Felix Loch is the Olympic

0:30:530:30:57

luge champion. Can he get gold for

the second time? Absolutely fly, two

0:30:570:31:03

golds, he's only 24! Maybe go three

or four.

0:31:030:31:08

Felix Loch is a luge machine but any

athlete who makes the German luge

0:31:100:31:13

team is a medal prospect.

0:31:130:31:14

Half of the 28 Olympic singles

events ever held have

0:31:140:31:17

produced German one-twos.

0:31:170:31:18

Matthew Pinsent was there.

0:31:180:31:21

So they are all chasing Felix Loch

who shot through yesterday's rounds

0:31:260:31:31

and is on the icy path to a third

straight Olympic gold medal in this

0:31:310:31:34

event. History has his back. The

Germans are huge in luge. Germany,

0:31:340:31:40

East Germany and West Germany

combined have 31 gold medals in

0:31:400:31:44

Olympic luge events. The rest of the

world, just 13. But could that

0:31:440:31:50

become 14? Austrian David Gleirscher

outs it -- outside Felix Loch on the

0:31:500:31:59

first running to do it again.

British outs and slipped away, Adam

0:31:590:32:04

Rosen and David Staudinger ending up

23rd and 35th respectively but look

0:32:040:32:08

out for Felix Loch. He's reached a

speed of 96 mph in the luge, faster

0:32:080:32:13

than anyone. Can he equal the record

of three consecutive gold medals?

0:32:130:32:19

Don't blink. You might miss history.

And in the third run, Felix Loch

0:32:190:32:25

bolted, out first on the track with

his bustard said so far. That would

0:32:250:32:31

take some catching and David

Gleirscher gave good chase, the

0:32:310:32:34

Austrian putting himself in with a

chance of a medal if probably not

0:32:340:32:37

gold. That was Roman Repilov's goal,

and he has a win or bust approach to

0:32:370:32:44

luge. This was more bust. The door

was now open for American Chris

0:32:440:32:49

Mazdzer, who went even quicker than

Felix Loch to climb into second

0:32:490:32:52

place. Rosen still had a chance of a

fourth run but with only the top 20

0:32:520:32:59

qualifying, he missed the mark by an

agonising two places. That was more

0:32:590:33:05

than 2.5 seconds ahead of an

improved Staudinger, who finished

0:33:050:33:08

33rd. And amazing run there for

Chris Mazdzer, the American, to set

0:33:080:33:17

up the fourth and final run but look

at the weather. They don't call it

0:33:170:33:22

the Winter Olympics for nothing.

COMMENTATOR: Johannes Ludwig next

0:33:220:33:26

for Germany. The bronze medallist in

2014. Ranked number five in the

0:33:260:33:34

world. He's on his way. He's 0.2

seconds off the bronze medal as he

0:33:340:33:39

starts Sony definitely needs that,

47.4, ideally, 47.5 possibly.

For

0:33:390:33:46

these guys now it is about staying

in front of the person that has just

0:33:460:33:50

gone down. Don't worry too much

about the medals at the moment. That

0:33:500:33:53

was a little mistake but I don't

know if it will cost too much time.

0:33:530:33:58

As he builds a speed, he needs to

get it right. Sliding off the

0:33:580:34:02

corners slightly. Not so good but

that is amazing, the speed that he

0:34:020:34:06

has got, he should stay in front.

Definitely got the right lines but

0:34:060:34:12

he is dropping away slightly. Is

this enough as he comes up the hill

0:34:120:34:15

to stay in front of Dominik

Fischnaller?

So tight as they go

0:34:150:34:21

towards the line. He has done it

ahead of Dominik Fischnaller, two

0:34:210:34:26

thousandth of a second. Now the

medal Chase is on. In bronze medal

0:34:260:34:34

position at the moment, David

Gleirscher, the surprise package of

0:34:340:34:38

this meant's singles Olympic

championship, a 23-year-old from the

0:34:380:34:42

Tyrol. Number 12 in the world. Up

until this week, pretty inconsistent

0:34:420:34:50

performer, capable of excellence.

His best finish in the World Cup was

0:34:500:34:54

fourth. He may well be getting an

Olympic medal in a few seconds time.

0:34:540:35:01

This is all about staying in front

of those guys that have gone down.

0:35:010:35:04

He does not care at the moment about

the American, about Felix Loch. He

0:35:040:35:08

wants an Olympic medal. Whether he

fights for bronze or silver, he can

0:35:080:35:14

find out when he gets to the bottom

of the track but at the moment, he

0:35:140:35:17

just needs to see number one when he

gets to the bottom. A guy of his

0:35:170:35:21

calibre, there should be no reason

why not. The way he has been sliding

0:35:210:35:25

all week, we can see the snow on the

track, will display apart in the

0:35:250:35:31

process of these medals in the last

few corners? Especially as you come

0:35:310:35:36

down the straight, and that is what

I'm talking about, about how the

0:35:360:35:40

sled can be a bit trickier to handle

in snowy conditions. He is going to

0:35:400:35:45

keep it. This will be an Olympic

medal for Austria, this will get the

0:35:450:35:49

bronze medal for Austria at best.

He

turns the final corner and he is

0:35:490:35:55

ahead of Lodewyck. Austria have

their medal for the first time in

0:35:550:36:01

2002, applause all round. -- since

2002. Great work from David

0:36:010:36:06

Gleirscher. Not many people would

have said that was possible and just

0:36:060:36:09

look at the euphoria! The Austrian

is in heaven. Chris Mazdzer has also

0:36:090:36:19

had a brilliant week, currently in

silver medal position. Maybe he

0:36:190:36:23

won't worry about Felix Loch

editing, Felix Loch is 0.2 seconds

0:36:230:36:27

clear of Chris Mazdzer. Now the

American just needs to do better

0:36:270:36:33

than David Gleirscher. Chris Mazdzer

goes to the United States.

He will

0:36:330:36:39

be happy when he gets to the bottom

whether he sees one or two because

0:36:390:36:43

that means he's got an Olympic

medal, whether it is bronze or

0:36:430:36:47

silver. He will definitely want to

be silver but he will be happy

0:36:470:36:50

either way. You can see how much

snow there is on the track now

0:36:500:36:53

compared to what there was even two

minutes ago when the last competitor

0:36:530:36:57

went down. This could affect the way

he comes down the straight. Riding a

0:36:570:37:03

high line first and then dropping

out and that is perfect, what a

0:37:030:37:07

straight and he has got good speed.

This is definitely going to be a

0:37:070:37:10

silver medal for the American. This

is the first American... It is going

0:37:100:37:16

to be down to the thousands all the

way.

Uphill all the way, loss of

0:37:160:37:21

speed all the way. Cannot quite do

it. It is a bronze medal for him,

0:37:210:37:28

not silver. Chris Mazdzer becomes

the first American to win a medal at

0:37:280:37:32

the Olympic Games in the men's

single luge. It is a fantastic

0:37:320:37:35

achievement.

0:37:350:37:43

achievement. The last German to win

three singles titles was a great and

0:37:430:37:48

now Felix Loch, at 28, as the snow

intensifies and wisps across his

0:37:480:37:52

face, is on his way. Surely a

mistake free run from Felix Loch

0:37:520:37:58

will see him win gold? He starts

with a 0.2 seconds advantage ahead

0:37:580:38:02

of Robert Blair shot. He's looking

clean early on. He has been so

0:38:020:38:07

consistent. -- David Gleirscher.

Surely he is seconds away from gold?

0:38:070:38:12

You can see the line moving,

interesting to note when he comes in

0:38:120:38:15

to some of the bigger corners, he

turned his head into the corner to

0:38:150:38:18

put pressure on the top runner to

help him steer. That is a mistake!

0:38:180:38:24

Could that be the medal has gone!

Could that be the three medals he

0:38:240:38:28

has wanted, the three gold medals,

as he got in speed?

First mistake in

0:38:280:38:33

the race, first mistake of the week

for Felix Loch, coming on the 15th

0:38:330:38:37

and 16th and uphill, there's going

to be sometime between him and David

0:38:370:38:41

Gleirscher and Felix Loch has blown

it!

He's not going to do it!

He does

0:38:410:38:46

not even have a medal and the

Austrian team swamp David

0:38:460:38:49

Gleirscher! He becomes the first

Austrian in 50 years to win gold in

0:38:490:38:57

the luge! No one had him down really

for a medal hope, let alone goals,

0:38:570:39:02

but Felix Loch, -- a gold, but Felix

Loch with that mistake a bitter,

0:39:020:39:08

bitter defeat. He

0:39:080:39:10

can't believe it. Amy Williams is

alongside me to react to that major

0:39:100:39:15

in the luge, no medal for Felix

Loch. What went wrong?

I know, he

0:39:150:39:21

was devastated, he made the

devastating mistake of what I call

0:39:210:39:23

the wonky straight, a tenth and 11th

on his exit out of nine was the

0:39:230:39:27

wrong angle and he was fighting not

to clip the corner, so he is

0:39:270:39:31

fighting not to clip the right-hand

side which causes him to skid,

0:39:310:39:34

cutting into the ice which is like a

braking system, and then he clips

0:39:340:39:39

right here, you can see the snow and

ice

0:39:390:39:47

ice coming up and then used to high

into 12, so he is oscillating, high

0:39:470:39:50

and low and high and he is fighting,

his head is really high.

It was

0:39:500:39:53

quite high before that Cummings had

seen to be quite high the whole way

0:39:530:39:56

down.

He did not look as settled and

comfortable as he did so whether the

0:39:560:39:59

fact it had started snowing was

playing on his mind, snow on the

0:39:590:40:02

track, how much it would affect him,

he was the last one in the changing

0:40:020:40:06

room waiting to go down, you're sure

of the psychological nature of what

0:40:060:40:12

is going on in his head but the

Austrian shock, he'd never even won

0:40:120:40:15

a World Cup race before and now he's

Olympic champion.

Really contrasting

0:40:150:40:20

emotions because Felix Loch was

being consoled by his coach on the

0:40:200:40:23

ice while the Austrians celebrated,

David Gleirscher taking the gold

0:40:230:40:27

medal and he had led after the first

run and then dropped down the

0:40:270:40:30

leaderboard and finally came back to

take the gold on the final one, and

0:40:300:40:33

also Chris Mazdzer. Of the US, the

first time they have won a medal in

0:40:330:40:39

men's luge.

Amazing to see three

people you did not expect to be

0:40:390:40:43

there, Felix Loch at 0.2 seconds in

his bag and lost it and this is an

0:40:430:40:48

unforgiving track, you can't make up

time when you make a mistake because

0:40:480:40:51

there are uphill sections.

Plenty to

learn head of the other events. Amy

0:40:510:40:55

is going to Seoul and then

Pyeongchang for the skeleton events,

0:40:550:40:59

the men's on Thursday and Friday and

the women's, featuring Lizzy Yarnold

0:40:590:41:03

and Laura Deas, Friday and Saturday.

Thank you for that and good -- thank

0:41:030:41:09

you for that and all of your

insight.

0:41:090:41:14

Now it is time for the women's

moguls which is all about the bumps

0:41:140:41:18

and how you negotiate them. The

women's final featured Justin

0:41:180:41:21

Dufour-Lapointe as the defending

champion from Canada.

0:41:210:41:27

The moguls is a world of bumps and

jumps, the key is to ski fast, jump

0:41:270:41:31

high and look good. 60% of the marks

are awarded for the technical

0:41:310:41:36

quality of the turns over the moguls

or mounds, and another 20% is based

0:41:360:41:41

on Beattie jumps on the course and

the final 20% comes from the speed

0:41:410:41:45

you manage to do it all in. The

skier's legs must be like pistons,

0:41:450:41:51

constantly moving, always just the

tiniest misjudgement away from an

0:41:510:41:54

unfortunate but spectacular finish.

Six were still sounding calm the

0:41:540:42:02

final three, including reigning

Olympic champion, Justine

0:42:020:42:06

Dufour-Lapointe and now, thanks to

the weather, it got really tough,

0:42:060:42:10

first on the slope, Yulia Galysheva

of Kazakhstan. COMMENTATOR: The

0:42:100:42:15

super final of the women's Olympic

moguls competition is underway,

0:42:150:42:18

Yulia Galysheva coming down the

centre, getting a decent somersault

0:42:180:42:22

in, taking a brave aerial position

at the top of the course. Now we

0:42:220:42:28

follow her with the camera at the

side of the track, her knees are

0:42:280:42:31

locked in well, solid skiing from

the athlete from Kazakhstan. Tiring

0:42:310:42:39

slightly now as she goes front flip

off the final jump, landing softly

0:42:390:42:44

and just over 30 seconds. 77.4 is

her score. Next up, the defending

0:42:440:42:54

champion, Justine Dufour-Lapointe.

Can she become the first skier ever

0:42:540:42:59

to win this twice? Now she opened

the throttle as she hits the bumps

0:42:590:43:06

in the middle of the course and

really piling on the pressure, an

0:43:060:43:10

Yulia Galysheva, who is waiting and

watching at the foot of the

0:43:100:43:13

mountain. Read skiing from the

defending champion, saving her best

0:43:130:43:17

until last. She is absolutely

tearing through the turns, flying

0:43:170:43:22

high, landing softly, slightly

backward, inside 30 seconds, the

0:43:220:43:26

fastest of the day so far in the

super final. 29.54 seconds. That

0:43:260:43:32

might just be enough to bring her

another Olympic medal. Justine

0:43:320:43:36

Dufour-Lapointe leads the way, 78.50

six. Perrine Laffont will be next,

0:43:360:43:46

the youngster, just 19. The first

ten turns before the kicker. She

0:43:460:43:50

keeps it relatively straightforward

and lacks a little bit of control,

0:43:500:43:55

straight after the landing. She is

back on top of her skis now and is

0:43:550:43:59

absolutely tearing down the course.

But that mistake on the birds

0:43:590:44:03

landing might just cost her in the

eyes of the judges. -- on the first

0:44:030:44:09

landing. She's got to go big and get

it right, over she goes, the landing

0:44:090:44:13

is OK at the time is all right,

29.30 six. She is the quickest of

0:44:130:44:18

the super final so far. She has got

to beat just been Dufour-Lapointe's

0:44:180:44:24

78.50 six. It's going to be tight.

Where are they going to put her? She

0:44:240:44:29

is first! 78.60 five. Perrine

Laffont will win France's first

0:44:290:44:35

medal of the Winter Olympics. Last

to ski in the women's moguls super

0:44:350:44:42

final 2018, and Dean Audi, the

22-year-old Canadian. She is away.

0:44:420:44:48

Just slightly slow start as she

picked our line for the first few

0:44:480:44:53

turns. She's really thrown it down,

though. Full, twisting back

0:44:530:44:57

somersault, struggling to regain

control and she is straight lining,

0:44:570:45:00

she is out and that means she will

not win a medal and Perrine Laffont

0:45:000:45:07

is the Olympic champion of 2018.

France kick-start their Winter

0:45:070:45:12

Olympics with gold in the women's

moguls.

0:45:120:45:18

Perrine Laffont's spectator teenage

Blix did the trick ahead of

0:45:180:45:22

Dufour-Lapointe, a first medal of

the games will Kazakhstan as well as

0:45:220:45:25

Yulia Galysheva took bronze and a

surprise result in a sport which

0:45:250:45:28

loves to flip things around.

0:45:280:45:31

Al second teenage Olympic champion

of the day. Felix Loch going last

0:45:360:45:42

and Andi Naude going last, the

pressure builds on you.

It builds,

0:45:420:45:46

you know the market you have to

smash through and you have so much

0:45:460:45:50

time to overthink and both of them

struggled with that.

Andi Naude

0:45:500:45:54

looked like she got going too quick.

Amy Williams was watching this

0:45:540:45:58

earlier when we showed a life. She

said, my knees hurt, just looking at

0:45:580:46:03

it.

I was saying the same thing.

It's incredible, the amount of

0:46:030:46:06

pressure that must go through their

knees. I know Pat Sharples, the

0:46:060:46:10

freestyle ski coach used to do the

moguls and I always asked them, how

0:46:100:46:14

are your knees? You said, not that

great.

Saw.

It's great to watch,

0:46:140:46:20

it's the combination of speed, but

the judges' marks is important as

0:46:200:46:26

well. You have to give it a bit with

the jumps.

It's not just technique,

0:46:260:46:31

I love the tri- element and the

judges have a difficult decision to

0:46:310:46:36

make.

It's stunning to watch.

0:46:360:46:38

Let's turn our focus to figure

skating and the Team Event.

0:46:380:46:41

Ten countries vying to make it

in to the top five and the chance

0:46:410:46:44

to skate for the medals tomorrow.

0:46:440:46:46

Today was the penultimate day

of competition and it was

0:46:460:46:48

in the women's singles

that we were rewarded

0:46:480:46:50

by a sparkling performance

by Russia's Ice Princess,

0:46:500:46:52

Evgenia Medvedeva.

0:46:520:46:55

Very solid triple flip, triple to

loop combination. -- toe loop

0:48:460:48:54

combination.

0:48:540:49:01

Lovely triple loop.

0:49:040:49:08

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:49:470:49:53

Well, Robin, a brilliant

penultimate's date's competition.

0:49:570:50:00

When it comes to elegance on the

ice, there's no beating her. She's

0:50:000:50:05

really struggling to

0:50:050:50:06

ice, there's no beating her. She's

really struggling to come to terms

0:50:060:50:07

with the fact she's not skating in

her colours, not skating under her

0:50:070:50:11

flag. She's finding it very

emotional.

She's using it within a

0:50:110:50:15

performance and it elevated her

today. -- she says she can skate

0:50:150:50:21

better. It's exquisite, glorious to

watch her. I find her quite elfin on

0:50:210:50:25

the ice but it belies the power and

mental energy to deliver those. She

0:50:250:50:32

has been beaten for the first time

in two years, can she set of the

0:50:320:50:37

Olympic Trail by being first? Yes,

she can, and in some style as well.

0:50:370:50:44

I tell you what, my money is on

Evgenia Medvedeva for the individual

0:50:440:50:48

goal. It was the pairs that really

brought it, the Italian power, they

0:50:480:50:53

are in with a chance of a medal

after that performance?

They'd like

0:50:530:50:56

to

0:50:560:50:59

after that performance?

They'd like

to think so and I'm hoping they will

0:50:590:51:01

think with that attitude, because

it's only been three seasons that

0:51:010:51:03

they've been together performing

like this. Yes, they both come with

0:51:030:51:06

the experience but I adore her and I

love her, but she's feisty and she's

0:51:060:51:14

a diva, but it will take a diva

along with him to deliver another

0:51:140:51:19

performance like they did today for

the first time they will be a medal

0:51:190:51:23

mix which they probably didn't think

they before. They were probably

0:51:230:51:27

hoping for top five, but who knows,

if they can skate like that in the

0:51:270:51:31

short programme and the long

programme, gain-macro, it's up for

0:51:310:51:35

grabs.

The Canadians came out on

top, Meagan Duhamel and Eric

0:51:350:51:41

Radford, a brilliant skate from

them. They give the Canadians are

0:51:410:51:44

6-point lead going into the final

date's competition tomorrow. USA and

0:51:440:51:51

bronze, the Italians one point

behind, it will be really tense as

0:51:510:51:55

we get the medals fought out

tomorrow.

It's the most beautiful

0:51:550:51:58

competition.

0:51:580:52:03

If you want to see extended

highlights of the team event,

0:52:030:52:05

please tune into BBC Four

for Olympics Extra

0:52:050:52:07

in about 10 minutes.

0:52:070:52:08

The conclusion of the figure

skating team event starts

0:52:080:52:10

at 1am tomorrow morning.

0:52:100:52:11

Skating of a different kind now.

0:52:110:52:13

This time, it's against the clock.

0:52:130:52:14

As dominant as the Germans

have been in the luge,

0:52:140:52:17

it's their neighbours

the Netherlands who own

0:52:170:52:18

the speed skating oval.

0:52:180:52:19

"Eat, sleep, skate,

repeat" is the mantra

0:52:190:52:21

of their star Sven Kramer.

0:52:210:52:27

The men's 5000 speed skating has

long been Kramer versus Kramer. The

0:52:270:52:34

only question has been whether he

can better his own time. Two golds

0:52:340:52:38

in this event and us two Games, he

had to donate -- be the Canadian's

0:52:380:52:45

time to win a third. We join the

flying Dutchman with two laps to go,

0:52:450:52:51

sit back and enjoyed a dash of

orange on ice.

0:52:510:52:56

COMMENTATOR:

All eyes on the Dutch man, nearly

0:52:560:52:59

two seconds quicker than the

previous fastest time and he's

0:52:590:53:03

skating towards the Olympic title

here. The all-time great, Sven

0:53:030:53:10

Kramer of the Netherlands, will take

the Bell this time here, just over

0:53:100:53:15

400 to go in this 5000 metre final

and that blue line I don't think is

0:53:150:53:20

going to catch him any time soon.

It's 1.88 seconds and Ted Bloomer

0:53:200:53:29

had a fantastic last lap, soap

Kramer has took really dig deep.

0:53:290:53:34

Kramer has to really go for it on

this last lap to make sure he can

0:53:340:53:38

take the Olympic title for the third

time in a row. It was a tremendous

0:53:380:53:41

last lap sprint. Here now comes Sven

Kramer, up towards the line, the

0:53:410:53:53

Olympic record has gone. For the

fourth time in his career, Sven

0:53:530:54:00

Kramer is an Olympic champion.

They are

0:54:000:54:06

Kramer is an Olympic champion.

They are so good at that. Let's

0:54:060:54:09

round up some stories from day two

with Paddy again.

0:54:090:54:14

A wild night on the biathlon course

is blue in a surprise, German, 34th

0:54:140:54:23

in Sochi, power and position and it

was an amazing goal. Plenty of rocks

0:54:230:54:28

over the puck to open the Olympics

for the US women's ice hockey team,

0:54:280:54:33

silver medallists Law years ago they

recovered

0:54:330:54:35

silver medallists Law years ago they

recovered from the bruises and being

0:54:350:54:36

a goal down to beat Finland 3-1. Icy

tension on every stone of Norway V

0:54:360:54:43

China in the mixed doubles curling.

Both trying to screw up a path to

0:54:430:54:47

the semis. Level in the round robin,

Norway won this tie-break.

0:54:470:54:52

Heartbreak for China. Curling can be

cruel.

0:54:520:54:56

Let's have a look at the medal table

with all the events of day two

0:54:560:55:01

finished. Out in front we find

Germany, I believe. Let's have a

0:55:010:55:04

look. I think they have three gold

medals so far. The Netherlands are

0:55:040:55:08

doing well. They've had the one,

two, three, Norway with their first

0:55:080:55:14

and the USA, courtesy of Red. Let's

go off piste.

0:55:140:55:28

This was posted on social media

earlier. I used to love the 18, Mr

0:55:280:55:35

T, into curling, I'm really pumped

watching they Winter Olympics, I'm

0:55:350:55:41

watching events I never thought I'd

watch before. Look at this, a catch

0:55:410:55:48

watching the short track speed

skating.

Riveted. This one.

Mainly

0:55:480:55:54

its get children we get sent doing

daft things but I think it's an

0:55:540:55:59

eagle.

Eddie is making a comeback. A

carpenter. Why Bob and he is, guess.

0:55:590:56:04

He's made his own skis. Look at this

from Julie, on Twitter.

This is

0:56:040:56:11

cute.

It will inspire the next

generation!

That's watching Felix

0:56:110:56:17

Loch.

She gets back up, keeps going,

she's got perseverance, and Felix

0:56:170:56:22

Loch is on track.

That's the worry.

Let's look at this.

0:56:220:56:36

Let's look at this. These are our

selections for red hot ice cold.

0:56:360:56:42

Luge is a tough sport,

but its even tougher when you're

0:56:420:56:45

flying along at 80mph

without a visor on.

0:56:450:56:47

Poland's Mateu Sochowicz is street

tough, no tears here.

0:56:470:56:49

It doesn't get much

better than this.

0:56:490:56:50

This is pure Blades Of Glory.

0:56:500:56:58

Canada leading in the team

competition.

0:57:000:57:04

It doesn't matter what sport you're

watching, everyone always says

0:57:040:57:07

the ref has lost his marbles.

0:57:070:57:08

Well, here's the proof.

0:57:080:57:12

Brilliant.

0:57:120:57:15

And finally, here's some classic

understated celebrating

0:57:150:57:17

from our Amercian cousins

after they won their first

0:57:170:57:19

ever medal in the luge.

0:57:190:57:21

USA, USA!

0:57:210:57:27

Tomorrow, so much to look forward

to. Mikaela Shiffrin starts her

0:57:270:57:32

Olympic campaign in the women's GS.

We'll be live for her second run at

0:57:320:57:38

about 4:45pm, Radzi on-air at

12:10pm. Mikaela Shiffrin is

0:57:380:57:47

something else, women's ski jumping

only came into the Games four years

0:57:470:57:51

ago. We ought to mention in the

women's giant slalom Alex Tilley for

0:57:510:57:55

Great Britain.

On top form, she's

had a PB this season, she does have

0:57:550:58:00

to challenge Mikaela Shiffrin and

others. Worley is in good form,

0:58:000:58:07

she's world champ, but Mikaela
