The American 17-year-old Red Gerard

0:00:120:00:17

bon storms the final.

Gold in the

luge!

We are watching one of the

0:00:170:00:29

true greats here. Andrew Musgrave,

sensational effort from the Briton,

0:00:290:00:37

it really is.

Day three.

0:00:370:00:46

Absolutely, mate. That style, it is

beautiful.

0:01:170:01:28

You got to say that she looks

absolutely amazing on a snowboard.

0:01:280:01:37

That is why she is constantly

topping podiums around the world,

0:01:390:01:43

ladies and gentlemen.

Thrills and

spills guaranteed, but that was

0:01:430:01:50

another windy day at the Phoenix

Snow Park. The organisers deemed it

0:01:500:01:54

safe and for the women's snowboard

slopestyle to go ahead by just 19

0:01:540:01:58

miles away at the Alpine Centre, the

organisers of the women's giant

0:01:580:02:02

slalom felt it was too dangerous.

Hello, good evening and welcome to

0:02:020:02:08

Prog-macro, day three of the Winter

Olympics. I'm joined by Chemmy

0:02:080:02:15

Alcott and Ben Kilner has been to

two pics with his snowboard.

Which

0:02:150:02:19

way does the wind blow? Apparently

the wrong way. It is playing havoc

0:02:190:02:23

with the programme. The women's

giant slalom has been postponed

0:02:230:02:27

until Thursday.

Have you seen the

woman slopestyle raced in such

0:02:270:02:32

circumstances?

It is a day of

controversial decisions especially

0:02:320:02:37

when the Giant Slalom has been

cancelled. These guys are spending a

0:02:370:02:41

lot of time in the air, and the wind

is causing problems.

Some things

0:02:410:02:46

were on, some things were off, but

still plenty to enjoy. Here is what

0:02:460:02:49

is coming up. Brace yourselves and

batten down the hatches, as

0:02:490:02:53

slopestyle battles the owners.

Patrick Chan one everything else but

0:02:530:03:01

never a gold medal, would the team

skating give him that elusive Golden

0:03:010:03:04

glow? Ludik champion Karina Bode is

hoping to defend her title. Mikael

0:03:040:03:16

Kingsbury is hoping for another

medal. And we're joined by skating

0:03:160:03:20

Superstar Christopher Dean, one half

of the greatest deal on ice. What do

0:03:200:03:27

the injured Katie Ormerod who

fractured wrist and then her heel in

0:03:270:03:30

practice, British hopes in the

slopestyle fell to the vivacious

0:03:300:03:36

Aimee Fuller.

Come on Aimee Fuller

of Team GB. Really solid slide.

0:03:360:03:44

Drama! No, she is younger...

Since

Sochi I thought it has changed a

0:03:440:03:54

lot. Progression is an upward curve.

We had contests every single year

0:03:540:03:58

and it was just like, you get going

on this poor, and now you've got a

0:03:580:04:03

set goal and a target every four

years. It has provided a good

0:04:030:04:08

structure of support. We have got UK

sport, Nord. We have got coaches,

0:04:080:04:15

physios, amazing places like this to

ride and it has provided a huge

0:04:150:04:20

platform and opportunity to progress

as athletes, and to progress the

0:04:200:04:24

sport.

Your thoughts on Pyeongchang.

I want to go and demonstrate our

0:04:240:04:31

sport and show not only what I am

capable of, but what our sport has

0:04:310:04:35

evolved to and where we can take it.

When I arrive at the top of that

0:04:350:04:40

course, just go for it. That is what

I am visualising in my head between

0:04:400:04:45

now and then. I want to be on my

board, doing the tricks I want to

0:04:450:04:49

do, so that I can just rocked up.

And stop the best run of my life.

0:04:490:04:55

The time to do that was today. She's

up against the defending champion

0:04:550:05:01

Jimmy Anderson who won gold in the X

Games a fortnight ago. Jenny Jones

0:05:010:05:05

and Jamie Nicholls will take you

through this one after a little trip

0:05:050:05:09

down memory lane.

0:05:090:05:14

down memory lane.

Jenny Jones, lying

in fifth...

Myself, Tim and Ed

0:05:140:05:22

all-new Jenny so well. We were

genuinely excited. When you're in

0:05:220:05:26

another big final with a shout of

winning a medal all balanced out of

0:05:260:05:32

the window. The last trick was a

720, as perfect as it could be.

What

0:05:320:05:41

is it?

0:05:410:05:46

is it?

She was in the bottom

position, then she had that one.

An

0:05:460:05:49

emphatic score from the judges to

take Jenny Jones into the gold medal

0:05:490:05:54

position.

In Sochi, she was the

rising star. If you Lanza, it is

0:05:540:06:03

hers.

We all knew what it meant. I

can remember dragging my hands down

0:06:030:06:10

my face... It was like that! Kind of

like fighting back the tears, and he

0:06:100:06:18

is welling up.

Jenny Jones, bronze

medallist.

If she had come fourth or

0:06:180:06:26

fifth it would be all right but the

fact that she took away our medal

0:06:260:06:29

was just perfect.

I can't believe it

has been four Pearson is that Sochi

0:06:290:06:34

file but we are back there with

another Olympics and Jamie Anderson

0:06:340:06:38

the gold medallist is here again as

well as the silver medallist and

0:06:380:06:42

there are some young girls coming

the ranks. Of course, I will be

0:06:420:06:49

waiting for our Team GB athlete,

Aimee Fuller.

0:06:490:06:56

Aimee Fuller.

We are absolutely on

the limit of running this contest

0:06:560:06:58

here. They cannot run these riders

in these conditions. I think that

0:06:580:07:04

this is irresponsible.

0:07:040:07:10

this is irresponsible.

Ooh!

Ooh!

The

weather today are so unpredictable.

0:07:100:07:19

There are huge gusts of wind out of

nowhere, then it becomes really

0:07:190:07:23

calm. As an athlete, something like

this is so frustrating. I can see

0:07:230:07:29

what is happening to the girls. One

minute they are flying to the bottom

0:07:290:07:32

of the jump and the next minute they

cannot clear them, so how can you

0:07:320:07:36

know what speed to take into it?

Aimee Fuller is about to drop. She

0:07:360:07:45

has been getting to grips with this

course throughout training.

Come on,

0:07:450:07:50

Aimee Fuller. Speed is her friend,

here. The under flip, that is the

0:07:500:07:57

single version, there. It didn't

feel like she had the speed. You

0:07:570:08:04

could almost hear her saying that it

is so windy.

It is like flying into

0:08:040:08:09

a hurricane, but fingers crossed for

the next run.

0:08:090:08:15

the next run.

The 360, clears it,

despite losing her composure. The

0:08:200:08:25

720, she has got the ball control

and the internal speedometer and

0:08:250:08:30

maybe not the prettiest way, but she

has made it through really

0:08:300:08:32

comfortably.

You have what -- one of

the favourites cropping in with an

0:08:320:08:38

absolutely perfect rail line. Now it

is all about the kickers in that

0:08:380:08:44

wind, for her.

Pound for pound, the

best slopestyle ride and the role,

0:08:440:08:48

at the US open in March last year

she wrapped landed the best run

0:08:480:08:52

anyone has ever seen by a woman in

slopestyle. The under flip, that is

0:08:520:08:59

how you do it, that is with a

revert. Great trick, and she almost

0:08:590:09:08

held onto it, such a shame.

0:09:080:09:16

held onto it, such a shame. Julia

Mancuso, what are you doing here?

0:09:170:09:18

Just cheering on Team USA. Jimmy

Anderson is a good friend of mine

0:09:180:09:24

and we are from the same town. --

Jamie Anderson.

Just when you think

0:09:240:09:34

she is perhaps thinking about

hanging up her competitive snowboard

0:09:340:09:40

boots, she goes and learns new

tricks, and look at that, goodness

0:09:400:09:44

me, liquid snowboarding.

It is an

absolutely different league, through

0:09:440:09:51

the rails. Confidence and experience

shining through. What is it going to

0:09:510:09:54

look like? Massive. My goodness.

Legs, forged from steel.

She boxed

0:09:540:10:04

clever, she opened up. I thought

that was going to be a cab double

0:10:040:10:07

under.

CHEERING

0:10:070:10:13

Great run from Jamie Anderson.

0:10:130:10:19

Great run from Jamie Anderson.

How

are we feeling after that first one?

0:10:220:10:25

Great, wasn't it?

Were you expecting

that?

Know, anything is possible. At

0:10:250:10:32

the end of the first bronze, Jamie

Anderson put in a great run and she

0:10:320:10:40

is an gold medal position.

0:10:400:10:46

is an gold medal position. If Anna

Gasser can land that trick she could

0:10:460:10:48

take the gold, but the wind is

making a lottery. I really do think

0:10:480:10:53

that if Aimee Fuller can land her

run, she will make it into that top

0:10:530:10:57

ten.

0:10:570:11:02

ten.

Come on, Aimee, sending it with

the backslide 360, and now was the

0:11:030:11:10

last run... I hope she is OK.

Second

jump, felt good that time, then it

0:11:100:11:17

was, do you want to go for it on the

third? Literally as I was in the

0:11:170:11:23

air, there was the strongest gust of

wind of the day and there was no way

0:11:230:11:26

that I could hold onto it, so I am

absolutely devastated.

0:11:260:11:34

absolutely devastated.

The Canadian,

this is where it counts, just making

0:11:340:11:38

it over. Into the last jump.

0:11:380:11:51

it over. Into the last jump. The

switch, and she has got it, but one.

0:11:510:12:00

Next, one of the riders who was not

happy about the course after this

0:12:000:12:03

first one, coming through the

hardest section, over the close-out,

0:12:030:12:09

the 50-50 backslide, 1080. The

backside 720. She holds on. This is

0:12:090:12:15

going to be good. The frontside 360,

goes smart, bouncers of the knuckle.

0:12:150:12:24

Enna Rukajarvi will not go higher

than her silver medal from Sochi,

0:12:240:12:26

but now she has got to see if she

can stay in that medal position.

0:12:260:12:35

Anna Gasser has written in four big

Eck contest this year and she has

0:12:350:12:39

won all of them. It is a one under

flip, Jamie Nicholls called it, sat

0:12:390:12:44

next to me. The backside 720, and

she has gone huge. Oh, my gosh.

0:12:440:12:56

she has gone huge. Oh, my gosh.

Anna

Gasser has not landed either offer

0:12:570:13:00

runs here at an Olympic final.

There

is definitely going to be a USA god,

0:13:000:13:09

but is it going to be Julia Marino

or Jamie Anderson?

She is down, she

0:13:090:13:14

is down. That means that the Jamie

Anderson has won the gold.

0:13:140:13:24

We go back up to the top were Jimmy

Anderson knows that she has claimed

0:13:320:13:36

the second consecutive Olympic gold

medal. Lovely shifting to the

0:13:360:13:45

backside 1080. Oh, no. And you

think, why?

0:13:450:13:53

think, why? Jamie Anderson crowns

what has been a very well decorated

0:13:540:13:59

career, with a second gold medal.

Jamie?

0:13:590:14:07

career, with a second gold medal.

Jamie? Whoo! Jimmy Anderson has

0:14:070:14:12

dominated snowboarding for so many

years, and now she's a double

0:14:120:14:16

Olympic champion -- Jamie Anderson.

I had a really good jump here, but

0:14:160:14:23

there were so many girls who could

land a run and win this contest. I

0:14:230:14:27

was going to just let it go.

I think

they should have cancelled it

0:14:270:14:32

because it was dangerous. Lucky that

no one got hurt, I guess. But this

0:14:320:14:37

should not happen again.

0:14:370:14:42

should not happen again.

After that

controversial competition I caught

0:14:440:14:45

up with Jenny Jones and asked her

her thoughts about it.

I am

0:14:450:14:52

absolutely gutted for these girls.

They were so looking forward to this

0:14:520:14:57

event then they get two runs, just

two ones in the final. You probably

0:14:570:15:02

already heard it, but it was

potluck, almost.

In your view, was

0:15:020:15:07

it too dangerous?

Should they have

postponed it today? It did look too

0:15:070:15:13

dangerous to me. You can ride with a

tail wind or a constant win, but

0:15:130:15:16

this was gusting in and out. This

was a big risk. I am so surprised

0:15:160:15:22

that some of the girls didn't speak

up at the top when they had a rider

0:15:220:15:26

meeting, they speak that the coaches

and judges and make a decision and a

0:15:260:15:30

call about whether it should go

ahead. I wonder if they got so in

0:15:300:15:34

the moment with the training session

that that was maybe overlooked, to

0:15:340:15:38

consider, hang on a minute, guys,

this wind is really picking up now.

0:15:380:15:48

Equally, cut if you have a lot of

younger riders who just want to get

0:15:490:15:51

on with it they are not likely to

stand up to the Olympic organisers

0:15:510:15:55

say they do not fancy it.

There was

a question that maybe some of the

0:15:550:16:00

girls tried to and maybe some did

not and that is also a question of

0:16:000:16:05

some of the coaches supporting their

athletes and speaking up as well.

0:16:050:16:08

Again, we do not really know,

everything is hearsay on what

0:16:080:16:12

happened in that conversation or if

that conversation even came about.

0:16:120:16:16

Did they feel the pressure from the

TV? I don't know.

For more insight

0:16:160:16:21

on what really happened we can hear

from Amy Fuller who has had time to

0:16:210:16:27

digester competition although she

was disappointed in her own

0:16:270:16:31

performance and this is what she had

to say.

I think it was just nervous

0:16:310:16:38

voicing their opinion and they do

not want to let the Olympic finals

0:16:380:16:41

get in their head. I feel like

people were in denial of actually

0:16:410:16:46

how bad the wind was. It is the

Olympic final and what do you do?

0:16:460:16:52

They ran it and unfortunately I just

do not think it was the best display

0:16:520:16:56

by any means of women's snowboard

slopestyle. The level right now with

0:16:560:17:01

through the roof. Our sport is so

young and fast and progressive and

0:17:010:17:06

today was not the day for our sport.

Letters have the view of then and

0:17:060:17:17

Chemmy two.

I give the massive

respect for doing that. For me I

0:17:170:17:25

would have cancelled the day. I pick

the girls and the coaches really had

0:17:250:17:30

to speak up so that their voices

were heard.

It is dangerous. This is

0:17:300:17:34

one of the best riders in the world

and she could not deal with it.

Yes,

0:17:340:17:39

Anna Gasser has been so progressive

in the last four years and I have

0:17:390:17:43

seen so many of her runs and you

know that these guys have got

0:17:430:17:47

everything on Loch now. They know

how to write these jumps. Today 's

0:17:470:17:51

display has really shown that there

has been such challenging

0:17:510:17:57

conditions.

As we know from Katie

Ormerod 's injuries, this is a

0:17:570:18:02

dangerous sport, either when the

wind is not up like this.

Just these

0:18:020:18:07

replays of the crashes, this never

happens on a day without wind. It is

0:18:070:18:14

just, there you go, I am amazed that

none of the girls have come out with

0:18:140:18:18

injuries.

You were saying that only

nine girls have a clean run with

0:18:180:18:23

landings.

Yes, out of 52 runs.

That

is not a ratio that would never

0:18:230:18:28

normally happen. One that did on her

first run, Jamie Anderson, who was a

0:18:280:18:33

good friend of yours, Chemmy Alcott,

and I was looking at a headline in

0:18:330:18:37

Time magazine and they were calling

her USA 's Olympic hippie.

I am not

0:18:370:18:44

going to say that, but she is a free

soul. She loves the sport and should

0:18:440:18:49

breeds aren't you live set. She

doesn't do it to compete, she

0:18:490:18:52

doesn't do it to be judged, she does

because she is up having loads of

0:18:520:18:57

fun and you saw Julia Mancuso

interviewed and she is a mutual best

0:18:570:19:00

friend we have been sapping together

and she is an amazingly athletic

0:19:000:19:03

girl and she is out there doing yoga

every morning and she has a

0:19:030:19:07

phenomenal six-pack and she can

adapt the body into any position

0:19:070:19:11

possible which is why I think she

handled this change and the

0:19:110:19:14

adversity of the wind so well. She

has so many tricks up our sleeve and

0:19:140:19:18

she knows her body so well so she

was able to adapt and user

0:19:180:19:24

experience today.

Her experience was

really showcased today. She came out

0:19:240:19:28

on top because she knew exactly what

you need to do and she showed how

0:19:280:19:33

fluid her muscle memory is and it

showed through all of her tricks

0:19:330:19:37

that she had them on Loch.

She makes

them look easy.

She is the first

0:19:370:19:43

snow style snowboarder to ever

defend the title. That is it for

0:19:430:19:50

snow board slopestyle and we have

big air on Friday with final

0:19:500:19:54

qualification on Monday but before

that we have some serious medal

0:19:540:19:59

hopefuls for Team GB in these skiing

slopestyle.

0:19:590:20:04

This is when you can feed the

freestyle skiing slopestyle. Izzy

0:20:220:20:26

Atkin and Katie Summerhayes on

Saturday at 1am. Then on Sunday at

0:20:260:20:32

1am you can see James Woods.

American snowboarder Chloe Kim whose

0:20:320:20:39

parents are both from South Korea

has admitted to feeling like Kim

0:20:390:20:42

Kardashian Ian out there given the

level of media scrutiny and few

0:20:420:20:45

could keep up with her in the

qualification round of the women's

0:20:450:20:50

halfpipe.

0:20:500:20:55

Look at her list of biographies and

it is just a list of the first youth

0:20:550:21:01

Olympic youth champion and she has

been done that so can she step it up

0:21:010:21:05

into the senior level? A really nice

big backside air. A frontside seven.

0:21:050:21:10

It could be switched seven. It is.

Double Grabban really nice control

0:21:100:21:14

on that grab. You are going to see a

big Makar twist. A slightly

0:21:140:21:24

unorthodox way of doing the indie

grab. A frontside seven and an

0:21:240:21:28

invert at the bottom.

0:21:280:21:37

invert at the bottom. She can

just... If she is a racing driver

0:21:370:21:39

she is able to turn it on when she

needs to. She can find the extra

0:21:390:21:43

gear. She has found it there and in

many ways what she has done is she

0:21:430:21:49

has just signalled the entire field

there. She has built a fire and got

0:21:490:21:56

a blanket out smoke signal the rest

of the field and said, do you know

0:21:560:21:59

what, I'm only in third gear, look

at the double grab here. She missed

0:21:590:22:04

it slightly. This was really nice.

0:22:040:22:12

it slightly. This was really nice. A

front side nine and then a twist

0:22:150:22:19

with the indie grab. Back hand on

the toe edge there and she lands it

0:22:190:22:24

really nice and high. A beaming

smile and is an improvement. Look at

0:22:240:22:30

that. 95.5 and Chloe Kim we will see

you tomorrow.

0:22:300:22:36

She is getting very close to the

magic 100 and only she and Sean

0:22:360:22:39

White have ever had that perfect

score.

Yes, Chloe Kim is also the

0:22:390:22:44

first female to do back to back

penalties as well so she really is a

0:22:440:22:49

league above everyone else.

She is

so relaxed. The best ones just make

0:22:490:22:55

it look easy. Korean eyes will be

glued to Chloe Kim and all the

0:22:550:22:59

Americans are tuning in tomorrow

morning at 1am tomorrow at our time

0:22:590:23:04

she drops in for the first-ever

final runs. If you think she is

0:23:040:23:08

great, how about these two?

0:23:080:23:17

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean

have won the gold medal of the 1984

0:23:490:23:53

Olympic ice dance competition.

It

might be 34 years since that cold

0:23:530:24:00

night in Sarajevo but those images

still feel so fresh and this man has

0:24:000:24:04

not aged a jot.

The pictures clearly

favour big Elf!

0:24:040:24:12

favour big Elf! -- the pictures

clearly say something else.

With

0:24:140:24:20

that routine give you a medal now?

Know, in a word, no. Sport has moved

0:24:200:24:26

on so much and the technical

difficulty that goes into it and the

0:24:260:24:30

requirements that go into it now, it

just wouldn't stand up. At the time

0:24:300:24:35

it was the cutting edge, like the

Olympics are now.

Do you still enjoy

0:24:350:24:42

watching the figure skating of the

ice dance? Does it grab you?

I have

0:24:420:24:46

been pretty involved with some of

the competitors this time that are

0:24:460:24:49

out there. Penny and Nick and also

the French team and the American

0:24:490:24:54

team and a German team.

Everybody!

You are in demand. He is just too

0:24:540:25:00

modest. We will get the views of

Chris in a moment or two and we will

0:25:000:25:05

watch the figure skating team event

with Canada going into the final

0:25:050:25:09

competition leading from Russia by

six points.

0:25:090:25:18

This Elvis routine set the bar for

Adam Rippon, an Olympic debutant,

0:25:210:25:26

who put in a magical performance but

came up a point shy of the silver

0:25:260:25:31

position. All eyes turned to the

three times world champion, Patrick

0:25:310:25:36

Chan from Canada, to keep alive his

team in the gold medal spot and his

0:25:360:25:41

chances of a first Olympic medal.

0:25:410:25:44

A beautiful quadruple toe loop. A

second quadruple is a repeat, which

0:25:480:25:57

he is allowed one of. It is going to

come right now.

0:25:570:26:08

come right now. Exquisite.

Absolutely glorious.

0:26:080:26:15

That should have been a triple axel,

in combination.

Despite some anchor

0:26:210:26:29

character is to mistakes the Patrick

Chan score was enough to extend the

0:26:290:26:33

lead for Canada. The medals at this

stage were all still in the balance

0:26:330:26:37

as we turn to the women. 24-year-old

Mireya nagger Sue landed the triple

0:26:370:26:44

axel and did so within the first 30

seconds of her routine, something

0:26:440:26:49

only two women before her have ever

done in the history of figure

0:26:490:26:52

skating. Her performance was enough

to keep up the battle for silver and

0:26:520:27:00

bronze with the Russians. A solid

routine from Canada 's Gabrielle

0:27:000:27:05

Daleman was enough to keep Canada in

pole, so it was down to a Russian

0:27:050:27:11

firecracker, Alina Zagitova, who

would steal the show and the silver

0:27:110:27:15

medal.

0:27:150:27:23

Another triple flip. The last jump,

the axel.

0:27:350:27:44

Going into the final phase of the

team event, the medals were already

0:28:050:28:09

decided. Canada reversing report

tunes from Sochi by taking the gold

0:28:090:28:13

and leaving the silver to the

Russians and USA the bronze. Three

0:28:130:28:17

times world champions and the gold

medallists from 2010, Canada 's

0:28:170:28:23

Tessa Virtue Scott Moir, put on a

masterclass in the ice dance.

0:28:230:28:30

It is brilliant to see Canada win,

and the celebrations, but really

0:29:230:29:27

they want the individual glory and

we saw some real gauntlet being laid

0:29:270:29:32

down there, particularly in the

women's event. Alina Zagitova, the

0:29:320:29:36

15-year-old from Russia was just

mind blowing!

0:29:360:29:43

mind blowing!

She saw what Medved

gave was doing and she brought attic

0:29:460:29:51

wonderful performance although some

people have called it clinical and

0:29:510:29:54

some skating people do not like it

because everything she does is

0:29:540:29:59

points first and aesthetic second

but she delivered the goods and

0:29:590:30:03

there is likely to be a silver and

gold from those two in the

0:30:030:30:07

championships but in what order we

just do not know. Mirai Nagasu from

0:30:070:30:11

the USA gave a performance of her

life and we haven't seen a triple

0:30:110:30:14

axel for many years at this level in

the competition.

Scott Moir and

0:30:140:30:19

Tessa Virtue I head and shoulders

above the rest and we haven't seen

0:30:190:30:22

the French pair with whom they train

yet and that could be a big rivalry

0:30:220:30:26

there but for me they look

untouchable.

I prefer them. But

0:30:260:30:33

then, the French team laid down a

free dance in the European champions

0:30:330:30:36

and they have a new world record and

they have the world record score

0:30:360:30:39

over also they will not go down

without a fight and I know they

0:30:390:30:43

train together and they know exactly

what each other is capable of and it

0:30:430:30:47

is just a question of who will

deliver on the day. The thing about

0:30:470:30:49

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, they

have had an opportunity to skating

0:30:490:30:53

front of the crowd and the judges

and really deliver a performance and

0:30:530:30:57

it

0:30:570:31:02

was a masterclass of performing as

well as being able to deliver the

0:31:080:31:10

technical quality of what is

required.

Great stuff. We can get

0:31:100:31:12

the view of Christopher Dean. You

said something about the team

0:31:120:31:15

competition. When you think you

should be? Nil it is only the second

0:31:150:31:17

time it has been held and acquitted

at the front of the Olympics but I

0:31:170:31:20

think it is more of a celebration at

the back end with the camaraderie of

0:31:200:31:24

your team-mates around you and I

would like to see a head-to-head

0:31:240:31:26

right off the back with the

individual

0:31:260:31:28

right off the back with the

individual skating which should be

0:31:280:31:30

first and then the team event and

that is my personal opinion. Maybe

0:31:300:31:33

they will change that in four years'

time and that will make headlines!

0:31:330:31:42

Lets just celebrate with Canada.

Particularly Patrick Chan. Having

0:31:420:31:47

won so much in his career, this is

his first Olympic medal.

I'm so

0:31:470:31:51

happy for him. He's a skater's

skater. He's very majestic. He has a

0:31:510:31:58

lot of maturity in his skating. As

an individual, going into the

0:31:580:32:05

individual competitions he just has

not got the jump power now, you have

0:32:050:32:11

got people doing potentially five

quads in the competition and he

0:32:110:32:14

hasn't got those courts.

Talking

about jump power, we saw something

0:32:140:32:22

rare, this triple axel.

I cannot

tell you how many triple axel, she

0:32:220:32:33

does in a day, to get that. It is

nine out of ten, which is a great

0:32:330:32:42

achievement rate. But you have got

to do it on the night. And it is so

0:32:420:32:46

precise.

So few have done it, she's

only the third in Olympic

0:32:460:32:51

competition, Tonya Harding was the

first American, at the nationals,

0:32:510:32:55

not the Olympics.

It is a huge

achievement for ladies figure

0:32:550:32:59

skating.

Is it going to be a battle

of the young Russians when they have

0:32:590:33:05

to be up against each other, Evgenia

Medvedeva and Alina Zagadou the? She

0:33:050:33:12

is the young pretender, the

underdog, nothing to lose,

0:33:120:33:15

everything to gain. She's going to

get out there with a lot of

0:33:150:33:19

confidence.

They are team-mates,

they train at the same rink and have

0:33:190:33:25

the same coach and she has already

beaten her once. This is getting to

0:33:250:33:30

be a fantastic competition. I saw

her tapping on the shoulder end of

0:33:300:33:38

that and it is great camaraderie

between them.

The next figure

0:33:380:33:44

skating is the pairs. The short

program begins at 1am on Wednesday

0:33:440:33:49

with the medals decided in the

pre-programme at 1:30am on Thursday.

0:33:490:33:52

Let's stay on the ice.

0:33:520:33:58

Let's stay on the ice. Canada and

Norway, only to be silly fun. The

0:33:580:34:02

first semifinal under way, so much

weight on every stone, every chance,

0:34:020:34:07

and an early opportunity missed for

Canada. Yet the macro that is a

0:34:070:34:13

mistake. Norway then pounced on a

mistake. Norway stealing one in the

0:34:130:34:19

third end. That is going to Ta'ai

was up at 2-2. Now the mistake from

0:34:190:34:27

the Norwegians.

0:34:270:34:32

the Norwegians. The momentum slid

back towards Canada.

0:34:320:34:43

Has she done enough?

Reprieve for

Canada. Now we had a contest. The

0:34:430:34:49

Norwegians try to recover lost

ground. Now we have a match with

0:34:490:34:56

just one shot between Canada and

Norway.

Into the final end and it

0:34:560:35:02

became clear that they would be no

way for Norway, who finally gave up

0:35:020:35:07

and thought.

There is the handshake

and finally, Norway conceding and

0:35:070:35:10

they will be contesting the bronze

in the match them. So do the evening

0:35:100:35:17

and the semifinal between a married

couple representing the Olympic

0:35:170:35:21

athletes from and the mixed doubles

world champions from Switzerland.

0:35:210:35:24

The Swiss went unbeaten through that

tournament.

If you have the hammer

0:35:240:35:29

on first end, fine, but putting it

but a couple, that is nice stuff.

0:35:290:35:36

The pressure of Truman Capote 's

ring on many a marriage but this

0:35:360:35:40

couple have found harmony. We are

tired after two.

They were adding

0:35:400:35:48

single point in the following end.

She has just about done enough. A

0:35:480:35:55

furious fightback then played out in

slow motion.

Switzerland still have

0:35:550:35:59

a bit of work to do.

The seventh

end, crunch time and the Swiss

0:35:590:36:05

couple rediscovered their touch at

just the right moment.

The hammer

0:36:050:36:11

will be with them in the final.

The

Howard means the right to drink

0:36:110:36:15

whilst another final N.

A Hail Mary

might have cleared out their

0:36:150:36:19

opponents and won it, but this

unfortunately, was it.

It is

0:36:190:36:27

Switzerland to win, I huge error at

the end. And I guess that is what

0:36:270:36:31

pressure curling is all about. This

was gone to play Canada for gold,

0:36:310:36:37

and first mixed doubles final is

tomorrow at five past 11 in the

0:36:370:36:40

morning. If it is anything like the

semifinals, you will not want to

0:36:400:36:44

miss it.

0:36:440:36:45

Still to come tonight:

0:36:450:36:46

She might have lost

her nerve in Sochi,

0:36:460:36:49

four years later can Sara Takanashi

take a leap of faith?

0:36:490:36:52

If you've got dodgy

knees, look away now.

0:36:520:36:54

Mikael Kingsbury jangles his joints

but will he jump for joy

0:36:540:36:57

in the men's moguls?

0:36:570:37:00

She's looking to become

the most successful

0:37:000:37:04

speed skater of all time,

flying dutchwoman Ireen Wust

0:37:040:37:07

goes in the 1500m.

0:37:070:37:14

Hi, babes!

0:37:200:37:28

The time is 26.

0:37:290:37:36

Your pecs look good.

She has stolen

my trolley and then still hasn't got

0:37:420:37:47

over being alike. Four years ago we

saw the inauguration of an event

0:37:470:37:51

that was long overdue at the

Olympics, that we now look back on

0:37:510:37:54

and cannot believe was never part

the Olympic programme.

0:37:540:38:01

the Olympic programme. The climb to

the ski jump is one of the most

0:38:020:38:05

daunting in sport. For women, it

took decades of fight, before they

0:38:050:38:12

were allowed flight. Since the

Winter Olympics began women were

0:38:120:38:17

banned from ski jumping. Enter a

former mayor of Salt Lake City ahead

0:38:170:38:21

of the games their 16 years ago.

In

2002 we had a gender a legal

0:38:210:38:30

Olympics, and I was flabbergasted. I

had no idea that woman couldn't

0:38:300:38:32

jump.

She took on the battle in

court and in the media. In 2011,

0:38:320:38:40

although those years of prejudice

and obstruction were ended with a

0:38:400:38:43

phone call. -- all those years. In

Sochi, women had finally reached the

0:38:430:38:49

top of a hill.

To be a champion is

fantastic. To be the first

0:38:490:38:58

champion... Is Olympic immortality.

0:38:580:39:08

Vogt has done it. It is amazing to

me on the podium, the first time, I

0:39:100:39:14

am speechless.

It is a goal that

woman sport has waited a long time

0:39:140:39:20

to see.

0:39:200:39:25

to see. Corradini died a year later

but she had done so much for the

0:39:250:39:32

sport.

This is a dream come true.

For women's rights, human rights,

0:39:320:39:39

woman and sport, all of the above.

Vogt made history in Sochi but her

0:39:390:39:52

dreams of what would not held by the

second I.

0:39:520:39:59

second I. Takanashi Japan jumped

into the lead but it did not last

0:40:000:40:03

long.

0:40:030:40:08

long. Althaus of Germany overtaking

the Japanese athlete with a star

0:40:090:40:14

score of 123.2. The order changed as

the event leader and scored her

0:40:140:40:21

German rival on style to finish top

after round one. This was a

0:40:210:40:27

situation going to the final round.

It promised to be tight all the way,

0:40:270:40:31

and it was.

0:40:310:40:37

Big event skier. The defending

Olympic champion. She brings her

0:40:370:40:42

best at the best events and can she

bring it here?

That is good height.

0:40:420:40:50

This is going to be close,

0:40:500:40:56

This is going to be close, to CF

Vogt can take over the lead.

And she

0:40:570:41:01

does. She is an first place. Five

0:41:010:41:08

to go, Irahsh-Stoltz didn't know she

would be.

She is short. That is

0:41:140:41:20

close. It is going to be further.

This is going to be crazy. We're

0:41:200:41:26

going to see some wild jumps.

0:41:260:41:32

going to see some wild jumps.

She is

crushed right now.

0:41:360:41:47

Avvakumova, one of the Olympic

Athletes from Russia has looked very

0:41:470:41:50

strong.

It was good.

It looks long.

She is right around that point. The

0:41:500:41:58

fist bump said it. That was amazing.

And there you go. She is on top. Can

0:41:580:42:06

she hang on for a medal?

0:42:060:42:16

she hang on for a medal? Sara

Takanashi what is this more than

0:42:160:42:17

anyone, the most decorated woman in

the event was like history, and that

0:42:170:42:23

is a big jump for her.

All she had

to do was go to the K-point at 98

0:42:230:42:28

metres to take over the lead, and

she did that, with 103.5 metres.

0:42:280:42:33

Wonderful from her. She wants to

show that she can show up when it

0:42:330:42:39

counts. And you bet she does. Into

first place the lead in the combined

0:42:390:42:47

scores. Althaus up top, knowing what

she needs to do to challenge for the

0:42:470:42:54

gold medal.

0:42:540:43:00

gold medal. Althaus, floating in,

reaching for every metre, I think

0:43:000:43:03

she's done it.

I think that's done

it. Excellent take-off, the arms

0:43:030:43:11

back, palms back, it is going to be

close.

And she is on top. Althaus

0:43:110:43:23

and Gold Medal position that want to

go and see bumps her team-mate from

0:43:230:43:27

the podium. The number one in

0:43:270:43:36

the podium. The number one in the

world, Maren Lundby, going for the

0:43:360:43:38

gold, leaning over the skis, can she

get their? And she does!

What a

0:43:380:43:45

jump! Unbelievable. 110 metres. One

metre from the Hill record.

I don't

0:43:450:43:51

believe it. Maren Lundby has claimed

the tenth Gold Medal for Norway and

0:43:510:44:00

the first ever in women's ski

jumping. She was laser focused

0:44:000:44:05

through the snow. She could see the

gold medal right ahead of her, and

0:44:050:44:10

it is hers. The focus all season has

been to win the gold, and she does

0:44:100:44:17

so over Althaus of Germany, and Sara

Takanashi in bronze position.

0:44:170:44:19

so over Althaus of Germany, and Sara

Takanashi in bronze position.

Sara

0:44:190:44:22

Takanashi gets a medal this time the

bronze, and the gold goes to Maren

0:44:220:44:28

Lundby of Norway. It was a

competition again disrupted by the

0:44:280:44:35

wind, but they seem to deal with it

well. Chemmy, although women are

0:44:350:44:42

allowed to jump in one ski event it

is not equal the men.

The men have

0:44:420:44:48

back-to-back chances, the guys who

live and breathe the sport, they get

0:44:480:44:51

four chances, and the woman only

have this one event, great that it

0:44:510:44:56

is included.

And indeed the big

hill, which they do in the World Cup

0:44:560:45:03

all the time.

In Alpine skiing the

woman have been racing downhill,

0:45:030:45:10

deemed dangerous, since the 1948

Olympics in St Moritz.

So why cant

0:45:100:45:14

they have consistency? In

snowboarding I imagine it has always

0:45:140:45:18

been men and women because it is a

relatively young sport.

The big air

0:45:180:45:23

was an event where the woman were

excluded. They have just introduced

0:45:230:45:27

woman into that. There are more

medals up for grabs for them. And I

0:45:270:45:32

think equality is needed.

0:45:320:45:38

Chris, you were part of a pair.

It

is all equal in figure skating. Some

0:45:390:45:45

of the earliest champions were

ladies champions.

One of Britain's

0:45:450:45:50

first gold medallists in the Winter

Olympics was a huge star and a

0:45:500:45:55

woman.

Baby steps.

0:45:550:46:01

woman.

Baby steps.

When a sports

star is stated as the best the sport

0:46:010:46:04

has ever seen, it is that they feel

the pressure most, maybe? They are

0:46:040:46:09

expected to win and they must win,

mustn't they? But sometimes it is a

0:46:090:46:14

bumpy ride.

Some call him the

greatest, one-of-a-kind, the master

0:46:140:46:24

of the moguls. He has one more

international titles in this event

0:46:240:46:28

than anyone else, wowing even those

who invented it.

0:46:280:46:35

who invented it. Hiroshima would not

be stopping Kingsbury because the

0:46:350:46:41

world champions ended in the powder

in round two. We join the action as

0:46:410:46:50

the Aussie

0:46:500:46:51

in round two. We join the action as

the Aussie Matt Graham goes.

Here we

0:46:510:46:53

go, the man who finished seventh in

the Sochi four years ago. Watch him

0:46:530:47:00

work the knees. He has been skiing

all night and these are really good

0:47:000:47:07

and fast and accurate terms from the

Australian. It is mistake free so

0:47:070:47:12

far. 1080 and what a runner from

Matt Graham from Australia. That has

0:47:120:47:21

got the Australians on their feet,

as if they needed an excuse. I could

0:47:210:47:27

not spot any mistakes at all. He

went big on the final kicker. Three

0:47:270:47:33

lateral twist 's. It is gold-medal

position and a big score. 82.574

0:47:330:47:40

Graham of Australia.

0:47:400:47:46

Graham of Australia. Here is Mikael

Kingsbury. World number one. The one

0:47:480:47:52

thing that is missing is the Olympic

gold medal. Can he complete the set?

0:47:520:47:58

He is off and running. The landing

was absolutely bang on from Mikael

0:47:580:48:04

Kingsbury. Barely a movement before

he started with the terms in the

0:48:040:48:09

middle part of the course. He is

covering the ground super-quick

0:48:090:48:14

here. He flies and he lands and his

skis on. That has got to be good

0:48:140:48:19

enough for gold-medal position with

just Daiichi Hara to come. The

0:48:190:48:27

Canadians are celebrating. Surely

that is a medal for Mikael

0:48:270:48:32

Kingsbury, who took the silver

behind his compatriot four years ago

0:48:320:48:36

in Sochi. Superb aerial form from

Kingsbury. A really high degree of

0:48:360:48:43

difficulty there. Will it be good

enough for gold-medal position? He

0:48:430:48:53

leaves 86.63 and that will take some

beating. Kingsbury is guaranteed

0:48:530:48:58

silver at worst.

0:48:580:49:05

silver at worst. 86.63 to beat and

that is a massive task now for

0:49:050:49:07

Daiichi Hara. The last skier of the

2018 Olympic moguls competition is

0:49:070:49:18

away. Daiichi Hara of Japan skis the

first few turns pretty solidly and

0:49:180:49:24

he lands. These terms are where he

can do the real damage. This is

0:49:240:49:28

where he has been on fire tonight.

Beautiful bump skiing from Daiichi

0:49:280:49:36

Hara. It is fast and direct. He goes

high and grabs some land softly and

0:49:360:49:42

sweetly and skis away. Is it enough

for a medal? Possibly. Enough for

0:49:420:49:48

gold? I am not sure. The degree of

difficulty displays by Kingsbury in

0:49:480:49:53

his aerial manoeuvres might just see

him take the title. Deji Haro may

0:49:530:50:00

well be on for a medal here. He is

praying and waiting and they are

0:50:000:50:06

keeping him waiting. He has the

bronze. He has the medal for Japan

0:50:060:50:13

but Mikael Kingsbury is the Olympic

Bumpus champion at last. The world

0:50:130:50:17

number one fulfilled his dream and

wins the biggest prize in moguls

0:50:170:50:25

skiing.

It was the happiest podium of the

0:50:250:50:27

day and all three of them were so

thrilled. We watched and we worry

0:50:270:50:31

about our knees.

Everyone watches

that feels pain in the lower body.

0:50:310:50:36

There is so much absorption and

suspension and you can see the

0:50:360:50:40

jarring in the slow motion. The

upper body has to be so disciplined

0:50:400:50:45

and their legs are taking it.

You

need oil in your joints.

That is why

0:50:450:50:49

I think they are quite young.

Now to

the greatest speed skater of all

0:50:490:50:56

time. One more gold for Ireen Wust

and she will become the most

0:50:560:51:01

decorated Dutch Olympian of all

time.

0:51:010:51:05

Away they go. Getting straight into

her stride and aggressively punching

0:51:080:51:18

her way through the air. The

important thing is to come down this

0:51:180:51:24

home straight and the first 300

metres, you can see the Canadian

0:51:240:51:28

will be looking to try and creep

behind the Canadian as she comes out

0:51:280:51:31

of this time but it is a superb

opening for Ireen Wust.

The crowd

0:51:310:51:37

are getting into this because there

are a lot of Dutch people here and

0:51:370:51:41

here they go, crossing over. Ireen

Wust will go on to the top of the

0:51:410:51:49

track now. This could work out well

for Brianne Tutt from Canada if she

0:51:490:51:53

can keep tabs on Ireen Wust all the

way around here she could be dragged

0:51:530:51:56

to a very good time as well.

Absolutely. Let us see what time she

0:51:560:52:02

goes to ear. 28.43 for Ireen Wust.

That is an amazing time.

Four tents

0:52:020:52:10

of the second outside the fastest

time so there is still work to do.

0:52:100:52:15

As she timed her effort well? Does

she have enough left in the tank?

0:52:150:52:19

She needs it most on the last lap.

You can see the blue line is how far

0:52:190:52:25

she is behind the leader at the

moment but the last lap she will be

0:52:250:52:32

doing a lot better, one tenth of a

second better than Brittany Bowe.

0:52:320:52:36

The crowd are really getting behind

her here. Away she goes, down the

0:52:360:52:43

back straight and halfway today now.

It needs to be a big finish and it

0:52:430:52:49

looks as though she is coming up

with it because as you can see the

0:52:490:52:53

advantage is growing with every

stride here. Up the finishing

0:52:530:52:56

straight and towards the line, it

read -- Ireen Wust is going for it

0:52:560:53:03

and she gets it. She goes into first

place. Ireen Wust from the

0:53:030:53:10

Netherlands nudges Brittany Bowe

from the top position on the podium

0:53:100:53:15

and she is the new leader. She had

to wait and see if that was enough.

0:53:150:53:21

On Saturday she was only beaten by

0.08 and this was a reaction when

0:53:210:53:26

she realised she had won a fifth

Olympic gold medal and a tenth

0:53:260:53:30

Olympic medal in total, a new Dutch

record. Winter or summer games. She

0:53:300:53:35

is a genuine legend. Ireen Wust is

best. Here is what health has been

0:53:350:53:41

happening today.

0:53:410:53:41

best. Here is what health has been

happening today.

In a sport of two

0:53:410:53:48

skills, two golds for Laura Tao

Myhill added the pursuit to a sprint

0:53:480:53:51

title in the biathlon, and it

Olympic double that no woman has

0:53:510:53:54

ever done before. They another

historic win for the men as the

0:53:540:54:02

French athlete was the first to win

back-to-back. Luge is a German

0:54:020:54:08

speciality said there was no

surprise to see at Natalie

0:54:080:54:12

Geisenberger of Bavaria in the lead

after the first two rounds. The

0:54:120:54:15

Brits look strong in the skeleton.

It might just be practised but

0:54:150:54:21

Dominic Parsons was fastest on his

second run, as was Laura Deas. Lizzy

0:54:210:54:25

Yarnold was third and fourth

quickest.

We will find out if they

0:54:250:54:30

can hold that skeleton form in their

third and fourth rounds for the men

0:54:300:54:35

on Friday and the women is on

Saturday from 1128.

0:54:350:54:44

-- 1120 AM. The same top three as

yesterday on the medals table. The

0:54:500:54:54

big mover today is Canada. Two macro

golds and a silver means they

0:54:540:54:59

leapfrogged their North American

neighbours into fourth spot. Now

0:54:590:55:02

time to off piste.

0:55:020:55:10

Have a look at these triplets. Who

needs a baby-sitter when you at the

0:55:100:55:15

Olympics on the telly.

Start them

early, that is what we need from

0:55:150:55:22

Britain.

It is not just babies and

children watching, there is also

0:55:220:55:25

animals. That cat is actually

hanging over and wanting to touch

0:55:250:55:32

the skater. This baby is trying out

all the different sports.

How cute.

0:55:320:55:43

Now let's look at this video of

teams skeleton. They look slightly

0:55:440:55:49

dangerous, don't get run over! The

Swiss ski team are clearly a bit

0:55:490:55:55

bored about something is being

cancelled. This is how they had been

0:55:550:55:58

spending their time. Do not do this.

You'll it is funny, but we don't

0:55:580:56:04

want to promote this. They are

incredible athletes. He jumps over

0:56:040:56:07

the top.

Incredible strength.

This

is all so the Swiss ski team. They

0:56:070:56:17

are nuts!

They looked like they are

having the most fun, don't they?

Now

0:56:170:56:26

time for red-hot and ice-cold. First

up, it has been a good day for

0:56:260:56:33

Canada but not in the halfpipe. Both

of their riders crashed out in

0:56:330:56:36

qualifying.

0:56:360:56:41

qualifying. That is four years down

the drain. Now ice hockey with

0:56:410:56:46

Switzerland against Japan. If you're

going to score, do it in style. The

0:56:460:56:51

slightest touch gets past the goalie

and the bonuses to take out players

0:56:510:56:54

on the way. Nice. It is a thankless

task being a luge coat but in all of

0:56:540:57:00

that effort to train your athlete to

the pinnacle of sporting excellence

0:57:000:57:04

and then...

0:57:040:57:09

and then... I tell you what, his

face says it all.

0:57:100:57:17

face says it all. This slopestyle

snowboarder is just showboating

0:57:170:57:20

here. He is from New Zealand and

this is a double backflip. That is

0:57:200:57:23

skills. Radzi will be here just

after midnight with the women's

0:57:230:57:28

halfpipe and the men's combined and

I will be back at 9:15am tomorrow

0:57:280:57:34

morning to bring new Elise Christie

going in a quarterfinal of the 500

0:57:340:57:41

metres.

Exciting.

I might not sleep

tonight but I hope police will.

We

0:57:410:57:49

are channelling so much positive

energy and luck.

She will be tucked

0:57:490:57:53

up in bed by now but tomorrow

morning she gets a chance to raise

0:57:530:57:56

the bad Olympic memories of four

years ago so do join us from ten

0:57:560:58:01

tomorrow morning to see how she gets

on.

0:58:010:58:07

Being disqualified in Sochi hurts.

No they have gone down! I thought

0:58:070:58:14

about never skating again. It took

me two macro years to get over that.

0:58:140:58:18

It may be tougher than I ever

thought I could be.

Elise Christie

0:58:180:58:25

is aiming to be the first British

woman to win a short track title.

0:58:250:58:31

Christie is leading the charge. It

is tight and she has done it, she is

0:58:310:58:34

the world champion. Elise Christie.

Here comes Christie on the inside.

0:58:340:58:42

Another gold!

Proving something to

the world. One gold, two macro

0:58:420:58:47

golds, three golds. When something

breaks your heart it takes awhile to

0:58:470:58:51

love it again but I am now. -- but I

am smiling now. I am ready for the

0:58:510:59:00

spotlight.

0:59:000:59:02

Clare Balding presents highlights of the day's action from day three of the 2018 Winter Olympics from South Korea.

Mikaela Shiffrin is the biggest name in action with the women's giant slalom potentially one of a number of gold medals the American skiing sensation could claim in Pyeongchang.

Team GB hopes on day three rest with X Games medallist Katie Ormerod in the women's snowboard slopestyle final. Ormerod has been widely tipped in the Pyeongchang build-up to emulate compatriot Jenny Jones's bronze medal-winning heroics in Sochi 2014.
