Laura Dahlmeier now double Winter

Olympic champion.

She becomes

0:00:210:00:25

champion at last. Another Olympic

title.

What a leap from her.

Jamie

Anderson, goodness me, liquid

snowboarding.

Des four.

0:00:340:00:44

snowboarding.

Des four. -- day four.

0:00:440:00:47

In Korea, we are very superstitious.

We fear the number four. If you're

0:01:180:01:31

in fourth place...

0:01:310:01:37

in fourth place...

I've had lost

have to with. It has been tough, as

0:01:370:01:42

well. I am feeling it for her.

To

guard against bad luck, we make

0:01:420:01:52

kites, and then rewrite our birth

date and our name. We let them fly

0:01:520:01:58

high, and if they saw, we released

them. Just like that, the bad luck

0:01:580:02:03

is gone.

0:02:030:02:09

is gone. -- if they soar.

0:02:100:02:15

Hello and welcome to

Today At The Games.

0:02:150:02:17

When the schedule came out

for the Winter Olympics, we all put

0:02:170:02:20

an asterix next to

Tuesday 13th February.

0:02:200:02:22

That's because today is the day that

British sports fans were hoping

0:02:220:02:25

to break out the bunting

and the union jacks and celebrate

0:02:250:02:28

that rarest of things -

a British Winter Olympic Gold.

0:02:280:02:31

Since the first

Winter Games in 1924,

0:02:310:02:33

there have only been ten of them.

0:02:330:02:37

I'm joined by short track speed

skater Sarah Lindsay

0:02:370:02:41

snowboarder Ben Kilner and downhill

skier Chemmy Alcott.

0:02:410:02:44

Lots to discuss as we reflect on day

four in PyeongChang.

0:02:440:02:52

She has taken world and European

titles but never an Olympic medal.

0:02:530:02:58

Today was the first three shots at

gold for Elise Christie.

0:02:580:03:04

Two nations are watching Chloe Kim,

0:03:040:03:05

whose parents left South Korea

to pursue the American gold.

0:03:050:03:08

She was hot favourite

for the halfpipe.

0:03:080:03:09

The greatest skier never

to become Olympic champion.

0:03:090:03:11

Marcel Hirscher hopes the combined

can change his life.

0:03:110:03:13

The Germans love the luge

and they were hoping

0:03:130:03:15

to bank another gold medal.

0:03:150:03:19

There's no doubt that Elise Christie

has been through the mill

0:03:190:03:22

but a lot can change in four years

and Christie is back,

0:03:220:03:25

stronger

in body and mind than ever before.

0:03:250:03:28

This is the 500m of the short

track speed skating -

0:03:280:03:30

the shortest distance.

0:03:300:03:33

The medals are decided in just over

42 seconds on a blade

0:03:330:03:36

no wider than a millimetre.

0:03:360:03:37

It's a sport of fine

margins in which

0:03:370:03:41

the only thing that is certain

is the uncertainty.

0:03:410:03:47

To everyone on the exterior, they

want to see the redemption. I

0:03:470:03:58

already personally feel that I have

made redemption.

The world champion,

0:03:580:04:02

Elise Christie.

0:04:020:04:11

Elise Christie.

Every athlete dreams

of being an Olympic medallist.

0:04:110:04:18

of being an Olympic medallist. To go

out and win the gold.

Elise Christie

0:04:180:04:24

is safely through to the

quarterfinals.

It is about what it

0:04:240:04:28

means.

0:04:280:04:33

quarterfinals.

It is about what it

means.

0:04:370:04:38

There is Elise Christie, the boarder

record-holder at this distance. Kim

0:04:400:04:47

Boutin of Canada is ranked number

four this winter, with Anna Seidel

0:04:470:04:55

of Germany on the outside. Why they

go in the race to the opening corner

0:04:550:05:00

and it is taken by Kim Boutin of

Canada. Christie settling in second

0:05:000:05:04

place.

0:05:040:05:09

place. But do of Hungary enter.

Smart move from Christie sliding

0:05:100:05:14

through on the inside. Takes

advantage over Kim Boutin. These two

0:05:140:05:18

are the favourites to go through

from this race. They should be the

0:05:180:05:23

class in the field and at the moment

that is exactly what it looks like.

0:05:230:05:25

It will be interesting to see the

time Elise Christie posts. Leading

0:05:250:05:31

the way, they are on the last lap,

at the moment she's through to the

0:05:310:05:35

semifinals. Here comes Christie. Up

towards the line, Elise Christie

0:05:350:05:44

takes it, and she has successfully

negotiated the first hurdle of the

0:05:470:05:50

day. It is confirmed as a new

Olympic record, 42.073 seconds. That

0:05:500:05:57

also means that Christie is by far

the fastest qualifier so she will be

0:05:570:06:02

assured of having the inner lane

again for that semifinal.

0:06:020:06:10

again for that semifinal. There is

Elise Christie just gathering her

0:06:110:06:12

thoughts for this semifinal. Elise

Christie, 4.5 laps to make it into

0:06:120:06:20

the Olympic final, and the chance to

race for gold. Why they go. They are

0:06:200:06:28

away first time. Christie second the

map first corner. Kim Boutin of

0:06:280:06:33

Canada are taking it. Yara van

Kerkhof of the Netherlands at the

0:06:330:06:39

back. Christie just closing the door

as Qu Chunyu had a little look but

0:06:390:06:45

Kimbolton got out of the box

quickly. Christie challenging on the

0:06:450:06:50

inside. Gets to the front of the

race, forced a little bit wide, Qu

0:06:500:06:55

Chunyu has gone down and you are van

Kerkhof is out the front, Christie

0:06:550:06:58

in second place. Elise Christie now

holding off the challenge of Kim

0:06:580:07:06

Boutin in third place. Round the

bend they come. Up towards the line.

0:07:060:07:13

Christie and van Kerkhof in a photo

for first place. Kim Boutin, I think

0:07:130:07:16

third over the line.

And amazing

race. I know where Elise had a

0:07:160:07:23

little bit of a problem, she allowed

Kim Boutin to get in front of her at

0:07:230:07:28

the start so it will be a decision

for the referee to make.

Taking --

0:07:280:07:37

waiting for official confirmation.

Van Kerkhof marginally in front of

0:07:370:07:39

Christie. There she is. Is this to

be a moment? -- her moment. It is

0:07:390:07:51

nearly time. The Olympic final of

the women's 500 metres. A nation

0:07:510:07:59

holds its breath.

0:07:590:08:04

holds its breath. Away they go. The

final is on. They get away first

0:08:050:08:10

time. Van Kerkhof not with a great

start, Christie Karanka moved

0:08:100:08:13

through on the inside, Fontana of

Italy leads the way. Kim Boutin of

0:08:130:08:20

Canada is in second, Elise Christie

back and forth at the moment. She

0:08:200:08:23

has work to do to get back into

contention. Montana still leads from

0:08:230:08:29

Kim Boutin. Christie now trying to

hug the inside line, have a little

0:08:290:08:36

look, no way past Boutin, Christie

Christ to make it on the inside, and

0:08:360:08:43

Christie crashes out. Christie is

out of it once again, Fontana going

0:08:430:08:49

for it, it is a photo finish between

Arianna Fontana and Choi Min-jeong.

0:08:490:08:57

In her quest for gold Elise Christie

ends up on the floor again. She

0:08:570:09:01

crashed out of the final four years

ago, and history has repeated itself

0:09:010:09:04

in Korea. She doesn't finish the

race. One chance gone, ending in

0:09:040:09:12

bitter disappointment for Elise

Christie who is doubled over at the

0:09:120:09:17

moment. She has two more attempts to

try to claim an elusive Olympic

0:09:170:09:22

medal. It is a photo finish for

first place at the moment. This is

0:09:220:09:27

the shot we need. And it is Arianna

Fontana. Still, they haven't

0:09:270:09:33

officially announce the winner. We

could see that Fontana crossed the

0:09:330:09:37

line, and there is a penalty for

Choi Min-jeong of Korea. She has

0:09:370:09:43

been penalised, and the home crowd

cannot believe it. Arianna Fontana

0:09:430:09:47

is the Olympic champion. Yara van

Kerkhof of the Netherlands takes

0:09:470:09:54

over and Kim Boutin of Canada

0:09:540:09:55

Kerkhof of the Netherlands takes

over and Kim Boutin of Canada has

0:09:550:09:55

the bronze.

I have worked so hard

for the 500. And it has just been

0:09:550:10:02

taken away from me. I got crashed

into. Then put into Lane four. I

0:10:020:10:12

know that it is short track and I am

supposed to be prepared for this,

0:10:120:10:16

but... It still hurts, you know?

I

think we all feel for you right now.

0:10:160:10:22

You have come back from this before.

I am sure that you are strong enough

0:10:220:10:26

to do it again.

Hopefully. I have

got a few days. It is still about

0:10:260:10:36

giving my best. I don't know...

Right now, I just can't see living

0:10:360:10:43

with this, you know?

0:10:430:10:51

with this, you know?

So, so

distressing to watch that and here

0:10:510:10:53

that. You have been with her since

you were friends at 15, you have

0:10:530:11:02

been in touch with her since. She

was really raw after this.

I spoke

0:11:020:11:07

to her very quickly after. She was

still really, really upset. Her

0:11:070:11:11

words were that she was devastated.

We went back and forth a few times,

0:11:110:11:17

and she quickly moved into getting a

little bit peed off but it all, so

0:11:170:11:25

hopefully she is going through the

grief process and is now getting

0:11:250:11:28

angry and ugly getting motivated

again.

And we will see her back on

0:11:280:11:33

the ice. We have an interesting

replay to show you. This is what

0:11:330:11:38

Wilf O'Reilly had to say after the

final.

One of the things we need to

0:11:380:11:43

understand looking at it from a

positive as well is that Elise has

0:11:430:11:48

had these disappointments in Sochi,

she's had the first disappointment

0:11:480:11:52

here, I said that just get a medal

would have been the way to move

0:11:520:11:56

forward. Now she has come away, she

has come forth again. She has the

0:11:560:12:02

1500 metres and the 1000 metre still

to go. One of the things now she

0:12:020:12:06

needs to do and the British camp and

back in the UK, get behind her, stay

0:12:060:12:12

positive. It is just the start of

the Olympics.

That was Elise's

0:12:120:12:21

boyfriend who is also a short track

speed skating are competing for

0:12:210:12:25

Hungary consoling her. She has got a

good team around her. You have soon

0:12:250:12:29

an angle, and initially we thought

that Yara van Kerkhof was to blame,

0:12:290:12:35

but it goes back to this incident

with Kim Boutin of Canada.

We were

0:12:350:12:39

looking at the reason why she felt.

Because her hand was taken away from

0:12:390:12:43

her. If you look earlier on in the

race, the Canadian cup in very

0:12:430:12:50

tight, going into the corner and

squeezed Elise hard so that she had

0:12:500:12:55

to go into the

0:12:550:12:55

squeezed Elise hard so that she had

to go into the corner very tight.

0:12:550:12:59

She ended up drifting wide. Which is

why the Dutch girl drifted up the

0:12:590:13:04

inside and took her hand. It did

look very deliberate from Boutin,

0:13:040:13:11

she did not take her normal line,

she did four almost shuffles to make

0:13:110:13:15

sure that she strayed over to the

left and squashed Elise going into

0:13:150:13:19

the corner. Elise had moved enough

past her for her to be having that

0:13:190:13:25

line and she should have stepped out

and let her take it.

She catches the

0:13:250:13:28

inside marker, and that unbalanced.

She had the block, went out wide

0:13:280:13:35

with both hands down on the ice,

then she recovered from that quite

0:13:350:13:40

nicely, but because she had speed

and she had gone white, the Dutchman

0:13:400:13:43

up the inside and then took

Handbridge hand which cause the De

0:13:430:13:46

Paul. We are focused on that, but if

you take it back a few paces, you

0:13:460:13:50

can see why all of that

0:13:500:13:51

you take it back a few paces, you

can see why all of that started in

0:13:510:13:52

the first place.

You short track

speed skating say that this happens

0:13:520:13:57

all the time, but for it to happen

four times at the Olympics, that is

0:13:570:14:01

harsh, isn't it?

It is a very harsh

on Elise. She had Sochi, everybody

0:14:010:14:08

knows what happened there. She has

done so much in between. She has

0:14:080:14:11

achieved everything that there is to

achieve and this is the last thing

0:14:110:14:14

left. Today was a bit of a disaster

for work, but you can't forget, she

0:14:140:14:20

has two distances stored ago, and we

must focus on that. Everyone needs

0:14:200:14:25

to get behind her, because she

responds very well to everybody

0:14:250:14:28

else's and positivity.

That's why

you been in touch, giving her those

0:14:280:14:33

positive vibes. And I know everyone

watching as well, making sure that

0:14:330:14:38

they were offering support and

wishing her luck, because that is

0:14:380:14:41

the most important factor in this

sport. She's back in the ice on

0:14:410:14:46

Saturday... In the 1500 metres she

is a world champion. She's in these

0:14:460:14:52

for the 1000 metres on Tuesday. --

she is in the heats for.

0:14:520:15:04

Six new events in existing

sports were introduced

0:15:040:15:06

to the Winter Olympic

program this year.

0:15:060:15:07

Men's and women's big air

snowboarding, men's and women's mass

0:15:070:15:10

start speed skating,

mixed team alpine skiing

0:15:100:15:12

and mixed doubles curling.

0:15:120:15:13

It's the mixed doubles

curling

0:15:130:15:15

that we turn our

attention to now.

0:15:150:15:20

Who will claim the

inaugural Olympic crown?

0:15:200:15:22

The final was between the two

heavyweights of curling -

0:15:220:15:24

world champions Switzerland

versus a Canadian team that boasts

0:15:240:15:27

two Olympic champions.

0:15:270:15:29

But first, battling

it out for the bronze

0:15:290:15:31

was OAR and Norway.

0:15:310:15:39

Paddy Gearey picks up the action.

0:15:400:15:44

The slip sandstones of semifinal

heart ache would still be fresh for

0:15:440:15:49

these two pairs. Missed chances

among courses have to be swept from

0:15:490:15:52

the mind because there is a bronze

medal in line. The married pair of

0:15:520:16:00

Anastasia Bryzgalova and Alexander

Krushelnitsky seize control. In

0:16:000:16:03

curling you can never be too

careful. Norway took this to the

0:16:030:16:08

final end. The Olympic Athletes from

Russia became mixed doubles curling

0:16:080:16:15

first Olympic medallists.

The Solar

Equation 's "Them.

Now for another

0:16:150:16:19

bit of history. The inaugural final

in this event. The world champions

0:16:190:16:24

Switzerland against a Canadian pair

who only joined forces shortly

0:16:240:16:27

before the games. Kaitlyn Lawes and

John Morris have made some impact.

0:16:270:16:31

How about this for fuss free house

clearing?

0:16:310:16:39

It is a great effort, really great

effort. The Swiss match them

0:16:390:16:43

struggle stroke and everything

pointed to this being a classic.

0:16:430:16:49

Switzerland respond with two of

their own.

0:16:490:16:52

Things change faster than you think

in this sport. Switzerland 's Martin

0:16:520:16:56

Rios got this very, very wrong.

He

doesn't want catch that top read.

0:16:560:17:02

Push their own stone out there. That

is a big mistake there.

What

0:17:020:17:08

followed was as brutal as curling

gets. Canada were ruthless and

0:17:080:17:12

relentless.

Kaitlyn Lawes certainly

worked that stone well.

The points

0:17:120:17:21

kept coming. Look away now if you

are sensitive or Swiss.

Possible

0:17:210:17:27

four here and it has gone. Yes. A

great shot from Kaitlyn Lawes.

0:17:270:17:34

Switzerland needed a dramatic

U-turn, always tough on ice. The

0:17:340:17:38

Macri has been in this situation

before I managed it around.

He will

0:17:380:17:45

dig Ian Wright the last minute.

Canada league as we go into the

0:17:450:17:49

fifth end. 6-3 and they have a

hammer.

And five in Canada kept on

0:17:490:17:53

kept on sweeping on.

Trying, he is

trying. That is going to be two.

0:17:530:18:02

Well, slightly forlorn look on the

faces of the Swiss pair.

By end six

0:18:020:18:07

it was clear there was no path back

into this for the Swiss realise the

0:18:070:18:12

sums were against the men out to be

inevitable, with this handshake the

0:18:120:18:16

first mixed doubles final was over

two ends early.

It is Canada 's gold

0:18:160:18:23

medal. A brilliant performance from

the two and they have been a perfect

0:18:230:18:28

couple.

New event and some things

never change. It is curling, Canada

0:18:280:18:32

tend to

0:18:320:18:34

never change. It is curling, Canada

tend to be winning.

0:18:340:18:37

And if it is curling we love to

watch it. If you want to watch the

0:18:370:18:41

British teams, the men's curling,

the new GP team with Kyle Smith and

0:18:410:18:46

his rink. They make their debuts in

the first Round Robin match.

0:18:460:18:52

Eve Muirhead and her rink

begin their Olympic campaign

0:18:520:18:54

in their first round robin match.

0:18:540:18:56

Women's curling Great Britain v OAR,

5.05am tomorrow morning.

0:18:560:19:04

Early starts for you but given we

have coverage pretty much 24 hours

0:19:040:19:08

you can catch up with it later on

and if you want catch up with

0:19:080:19:11

curling later in the morning we will

be bringing it to you.

0:19:110:19:14

Now to the final of the women's

snowboard halfpipe and one

0:19:140:19:17

of the biggest stars in town

is Chloe Kim.

0:19:170:19:19

The American with Korean heritage

has got support from both sides.

0:19:190:19:22

She blitzed through qualification

and at only 17-years-old was ready

0:19:220:19:24

to drop in to the history books.

0:19:240:19:29

It was standing room only at the

halfpipe in the Phoenix Snow Park.

0:19:290:19:33

In South Korea there is argument

more excitement over this medal than

0:19:330:19:36

any of the others.

0:19:360:19:38

Here's Ed Leigh.

0:19:380:19:39

Here's Ed Leigh.

0:19:390:19:43

This is Chloe Kim, the youngest

snowboarder ever to have won three

0:19:430:19:47

consecutive X Games medals and in

one time she won with a perfect

0:19:470:19:50

score of 100. It is not as

snowboarding skills that make the

0:19:500:19:54

centre of attention in South Korea.

She may hail

0:19:540:19:58

centre of attention in South Korea.

She may hail from southern

0:19:580:19:59

California, but her family are from

right.

I grew up in a very Korean

0:19:590:20:06

environment. I am competing my first

Olympics in a country where my

0:20:060:20:10

parents came from and that is pretty

insane.

The Koreans love having her

0:20:100:20:15

here and they are cheering her on as

though she is competing for the home

0:20:150:20:20

nation.

Big at the Olympics was a

dream of mine since I was a little

0:20:200:20:23

girl and so I think it is just kind

of crazy coincidence that my first

0:20:230:20:28

Olympics is at the country my

parents came from.

She has been

0:20:280:20:32

waiting for the chance to ride in an

Olympic halfpipe in four years. She

0:20:320:20:35

was qualified to ride in Sochi but

too young to compete.

She can win

0:20:350:20:41

gold here she might just become a

fully fledged megastar in the US as

0:20:410:20:45

well as in Korea.

0:20:450:20:49

fully fledged megastar in the US as

well as in Korea.

Three runs and

0:20:490:20:52

only the best run will count.

Representing America, this is Kelly

0:20:520:20:58

Clark, the most successful

snowboarder ever to strap in

0:20:580:21:00

competition.

A signature frontside

air. A backside 540 and a lot of

0:21:000:21:07

travel down the pipe. A huge

frontside ten and a 1080 on the

0:21:070:21:18

third hit. That is huge.

Crippler, a

backflip in the pipe and a tail flip

0:21:180:21:24

and Kelly Clark has just set a huge

high mart in the women's halfpipe

0:21:240:21:29

finals. 76.2 five. Next up luge

Ayew, AKA birdie. She is so relaxed

0:21:290:21:39

up there.

0:21:390:21:44

up there. -- Liu Jiayu.

Do so hard

to keep your deal edge on that wall

0:21:470:21:50

but she has bossed it so far. It is

a beautiful run and a big frontside

0:21:500:21:56

five and landing nice and high on

the transition. Back to back five

0:21:560:22:01

claw-back. Lovely stuff. She could

have got it round a little bit more

0:22:010:22:04

and she is happy.

0:22:040:22:11

and she is happy.

Chloe Kim, she is

without question the best halfpipe

0:22:110:22:14

rider in the world. Whether she can

put it together now, under pressure,

0:22:140:22:20

that is what counts.

Boom!

Absolutely huge to start things off.

0:22:200:22:28

Frontside 1080. Switch now when she

loses a bit as me but she still gets

0:22:280:22:33

the 720 around. Frontside 100. There

is the mixed twist and the Indie

0:22:330:22:38

ground. Into a huge inverted seven.

What a run from her.

What a run.

0:22:380:22:50

This is the frontside 1080 and at

the X Games two weeks ago we saw

0:22:500:22:54

that back-to-back in the errand that

is where Chloe Kim can go and nobody

0:22:540:22:58

else can. That is why Kelly Clark

got a 76 for an incredible run early

0:22:580:23:03

on because the judges needed space

to for Chloe Kim.

That ensured she

0:23:030:23:10

led the field. The first to run --

drop in round two was Arielle Gold.

0:23:100:23:15

This rider also had the 1080 in her

arsenal. She produced the trick on

0:23:150:23:20

the first hit and those three turns

in the air put her into fourth.

0:23:200:23:26

Kelly Clark produced another 1080 to

ensure she remained in the podium on

0:23:260:23:30

third. The Chinese rider Liu Jiayu

put down a big and cleaner version

0:23:300:23:35

of her first run and she closed the

gap to Chloe Kim 's first-run score.

0:23:350:23:42

The American once again dropped

last. The clouds -- the crowds were

0:23:420:23:45

roaring her on as she attempted

back-to-back 1080s but it wasn't to

0:23:450:23:51

be and she left the door slightly

ajar for her rival as she headed

0:23:510:23:55

into round three. Aerial gold landed

a brilliant run on her second run,

0:23:550:24:04

can she now set it up and tidy it up

and make it as big and clean as it

0:24:040:24:07

is possible to get. If she can she

could push Chloe Kim. Amazing.

An

0:24:070:24:15

absolutely huge Liu Jiayu to kick

things off. Switch seven and build

0:24:150:24:18

up the speed now I get the amplitude

up. A nice backflip.

She has lost

0:24:180:24:24

amplitude there.

She really has.

Backside air, frontside nine. A huge

0:24:240:24:32

mug twist. Even how at the bottom

and her hands are in the air. Is it

0:24:320:24:35

enough?

0:24:350:24:40

enough?

85. An 11 point shift. That

is huge.

0:24:410:24:50

is huge. Kelly has got to put

another trick into this, hasn't she?

0:24:500:24:52

Another big twist. -- trick.

She has

two.

She landed a little flattered

0:24:520:24:59

that would kill the speed. Again a

bit flat but she is holding the

0:24:590:25:05

speed. A big frontside ten and that

is beautiful. Now, switch seven. She

0:25:050:25:14

is landing flat and how we she still

standing up? A huge crippler and I

0:25:140:25:16

think that was the improvement.

There was the extra 20 -- it as

0:25:160:25:23

well.

Can Kelly Clark move up the

rankings with that one? I don't know

0:25:230:25:29

how to call it really.

83.5. It is a

slight improvement for Kelly Clark

0:25:290:25:40

but it is not enough to overhaul

aerial gold, who remains in bronze

0:25:400:25:43

medal position.

Liu Jiayu of China,

her nickname is birdie.

This is a

0:25:430:25:54

celebration of snowboarding here.

Beautiful. Really nice height on the

0:25:540:26:04

second it.

Here is the 1080, go one!

900.

She is so high.

Here is the

0:26:040:26:14

frontside ten. Oh, she has gone!

She

landed that we would have had the

0:26:140:26:20

game on our hands. Liu Jiayu knows

that she is the silver medallist, as

0:26:200:26:25

has so often been the case was Sean

White, Chloe Kim will be gifted the

0:26:250:26:30

lap of honour.

Let's see. She is

eating this pipe up for breakfast

0:26:300:26:38

here.

Please do the back-to-back.

She is not holding back. She know

0:26:380:26:43

she has the. Yes! Back-to-back ten

and nine to the flat with her legs

0:26:430:26:52

turned on and I was the mixed twist

that defies logic. The final

0:26:520:27:00

inverted seven and we have a new

Olympic champion.

Wow. An absolutely

0:27:000:27:05

brilliant run from Chloe Kim.

0:27:050:27:13

brilliant run from Chloe Kim.

A

phenomenal run from Chloe Kim.

You

0:27:130:27:20

tweeted that you were angry earlier

on, did that help? You unleashed it

0:27:200:27:25

on the final run.

0:27:250:27:32

on the final run.

Yes, I was getting

really hangry are not really stoked

0:27:320:27:34

because my stomach was rumbling but

I transferred all of that anger into

0:27:340:27:37

my third run and it worked!

I love the face, it worked, and I

0:27:370:27:45

will have some ice cream! The

combination of anger and anger just

0:27:450:27:50

got her out there.

This was her at

the top of the run before she came

0:27:500:27:53

down and she said she wished she had

finished breakfast sandwich. She is

0:27:530:27:57

so laid back.

It is refreshing.

Ben,

I want your expertise on white Chloe

0:27:570:28:03

Kim is so much better than anyone

else in women's halfpipe.

I have had

0:28:030:28:08

to think about this quite a lot now

and I think

0:28:080:28:19

and I think some the youngsters that

are being introduced to the sport at

0:28:200:28:22

such a young age now that there is

such a wide variety of tricks, they

0:28:220:28:25

are entering a world where when I

was younger these tricks were not

0:28:250:28:27

available. Chloe is just one of

these girls that is naturally

0:28:270:28:30

talented and she looks so smooth

during her run. Share here -- here

0:28:300:28:34

she has her back-to-back 1080 so she

showcases the true essence of

0:28:340:28:37

snowboarding. She got a perfect

score originally when she did this

0:28:370:28:40

run at the X Games and she has done

it again at the Olympics.

She is the

0:28:400:28:46

youngest ever female to win a

gold-medal on the snow and she

0:28:460:28:51

actually reached qualification

standard four years ago.

Yes, she

0:28:510:28:54

was just too young to go to Saatchi

but she showcased herself at the X

0:28:540:28:59

Games. She has more gold than anyone

else already at such a young

0:28:590:29:14

age and she has such a bright future

as well.

That gave women's

0:29:160:29:19

snowboarding a chance to shine

because after what happened at the

0:29:190:29:21

slopestyle we needed to see it at

its best.

Everyone was talking about

0:29:210:29:24

the progression of the female riders

yesterday and they couldn't do with

0:29:240:29:26

the wind in the slopestyle so it was

brilliant to see them yesterday and

0:29:260:29:29

she was showing something that was

young and hungry and pushing the

0:29:290:29:31

boundaries for female riders.

We

will see a lot more from Chloe in

0:29:310:29:34

the future.

The USA are certainly

dominating.

0:29:340:29:36

Also hanging out at the halfpipe

was the man with the best nickname

0:29:360:29:39

in sport, the Flying Tomato,

Shaun White, who won gold in 2006

0:29:390:29:42

and 2010 and could yet become

the first snowboarder ever to win

0:29:420:29:45

three Olympic titles.

0:29:450:29:53

This is Shaun White, the finest of

his generation. The eyes of the

0:29:560:30:01

world are on this man. Absolutely

massive! His second gold medal.

0:30:010:30:11

Shaun White unveils the Tomahawk!

Phenomenal.

0:30:110:30:22

Shaun White unveils the Tomahawk!

Phenomenal. The hair is short, the

0:30:220:30:23

body a little older and a

qualification today he was pushed

0:30:230:30:28

all the way by Australian, Scotty

James.

0:30:280:30:33

all the way by Australian, Scotty

James. The first of these two riders

0:30:330:30:36

is Scotty James, the Australian. In

2017 he won pretty much everything.

0:30:360:30:43

Shaun White comes out for just the

biggest and best events of the year.

0:30:430:30:47

There are very few people who can

claim to have beaten him in the

0:30:470:30:52

perfect pipe when he is on form.

Scotty James is going to try and do

0:30:520:30:57

that. My goodness. Absolutely huge,

he's gone back for the add-on, the

0:30:570:31:06

back-to-back 1260s. The backside

900. The frontside five, the switch

0:31:060:31:11

five, entered a switch backside

nine. ! The Taipan. That's what he

0:31:110:31:23

went for last time.

You don't see

many of those.

96.75, Scotty James

0:31:230:31:30

gives a little annoyed, like he knew

that it was coming. A jab to the

0:31:300:31:35

camera. Here I come, Sean, here I

come. Scotty James moves into first.

0:31:350:31:40

What can Shaun White du?

He

definitely sprinkles pressure on his

0:31:400:31:47

breakfast cereal. What can he do

year? A huge frontside double ten.

0:31:470:31:56

The biggest hits we have seen on

these spinning 1080s. Little bit

0:31:560:32:03

squarely on the edge. He has held

it, into the double.

The frontside

0:32:030:32:12

double 1260.

You start wondering if

Shaun White isn't operating with

0:32:120:32:17

some kind of different gravitational

force.

0:32:170:32:23

force.

Is just walking away from the

board! He knows that it is good. He

0:32:230:32:28

knows that it's big. How easy did he

make it look? Shaun White, take a

0:32:280:32:35

bow. 98.5! Wow!

I wish we had a

camera on Scotty James now. The look

0:32:350:32:50

on his face would tell you

everything that you need to know. A

0:32:500:32:56

million different reasons why you

should

0:32:560:32:57

million different reasons why you

should watch the finals tomorrow.

0:32:570:33:01

Scottie did an amazing round. I

figured I really needed to send it

0:33:010:33:06

one.

You can't run as fast when

someone is chasing you. It has been

0:33:060:33:10

nice to see those guys stepping out,

do challenging runs and really put

0:33:100:33:14

the pressure on me to and so back

with something special.

He is the

0:33:140:33:21

big occasion performer, and he

hardly competes at all these days.

0:33:210:33:26

Straight after Sochi, he disappeared

off the scene for a while. I don't

0:33:260:33:30

know whether the Hollywood and

business lifestyle kind of got to

0:33:300:33:33

him and he sort of disappeared, but

he has come back and answered.

And

0:33:330:33:38

he gets so much height, it seems

that he can do more than others.

0:33:380:33:43

Scotty James is brilliant but at the

moment he is still better.

What is

0:33:430:33:49

interesting is Scotty James and

Shaun White have not clashed

0:33:490:33:51

together too often. Seeing it here

at the Olympics, it's going to be a

0:33:510:33:56

massive show. You can see Shaun

White showing how high he can get.

0:33:560:34:01

And he is silky smooth. This is his

signature trick that he has always

0:34:010:34:06

had since 2006, injuring. And

although these new tricks, the back

0:34:060:34:12

double 12, enter the frontside

double 1440. All that I find with

0:34:120:34:20

these guys is that the qualification

runs have been outstanding. I don't

0:34:200:34:25

really know what the final is going

to be like.

Scotty James has this

0:34:250:34:31

strange condition where his knees

dislocate.

I have a similar problem

0:34:310:34:36

and I have wires in my kneecap to

stabilise my patella. Sometimes when

0:34:360:34:42

you are dating hard, the knee wants

to come out of place.

It is similar

0:34:420:34:47

to Scottie. I wish I hadn't

mentioned that, I now feel a little

0:34:470:34:51

bit sick! Here is the schedule for

the men's snowboard halfpipe final,

0:34:510:34:58

and here is what is still to come

tonight.

0:34:580:35:05

Germany looking to dominate the

women's luge.

0:35:110:35:18

women's luge.

No can do.

Take about.

-- a bow.

I can't hear them.

See you

0:35:210:35:41

tomorrow.

I knew that you would make

it, trying to learn short track. You

0:35:410:35:49

made it look quite easy.

0:35:490:35:53

The Alpine skiing programme has been

blown off course by the wind,

0:35:530:35:56

but finally today an event

could take place - the Combined.

0:35:560:35:59

Marcel Hirscher is proclaimed as one

of the greatest of all time

0:35:590:36:05

but so far his trophy cabinet has

been lacking an Olympic

0:36:050:36:08

gold medal.

0:36:080:36:11

gold medal.

0:36:110:36:19

Hirschel still in front. One of the

greatest of all time.

0:36:270:36:30

The all-conquering Austrian is

targeting four gold medals in total.

0:36:300:36:32

Here's Graham Bell.

0:36:320:36:38

The Johnson Alpine Centre is the

setting for the men's Alpine

0:36:380:36:42

combined, and exacting test of

skiing skills with two disciplines,

0:36:420:36:46

downhill followed my slalom.

Downhill is all about pace and

0:36:460:36:48

speed. Slalom demands more focus on

technical execution. The scoring is

0:36:480:36:56

simple, the fastest combined time

wins.

0:36:560:37:04

wins. Thomas dressing of Germany

will be the first ski racer at the

0:37:040:37:09

Alpine skiing. But all of the delays

because of when we have to weight

0:37:090:37:14

until Tuesday for the men's Alpine

combined to get under way. It is a

0:37:140:37:18

shortened course because of the win

and Graham Bell will talk you

0:37:180:37:21

through it.

Starting on top of the

roller-coaster section of the

0:37:210:37:25

tunnels underneath the course,

coming up onto what would be the

0:37:250:37:29

second jump in the downhill at the

Dragon School, the big sweeping

0:37:290:37:38

time, that is paradise turn, and the

second jump on this course, then

0:37:380:37:44

heading towards the blue Dragon

Valley.

0:37:440:37:50

Valley. Dressen is experienced in

down but not up to much in slalom

0:37:530:37:56

and this combined race is a match of

the two. Dressen had good speed in

0:37:560:38:01

the training runs, top seven in the

last training run. So expect Dressen

0:38:010:38:05

to set down a good time. He's had an

error-free run and the downhill,

0:38:050:38:10

with a little bit of wind about

still as he comes past the magic

0:38:100:38:14

tree and heading towards the final

jump now.

The man he won the

0:38:140:38:20

downhill at Kitzbuhel, before the

start of the Olympic Winter Games.

0:38:200:38:25

Not too many out here watching, but

there will be plenty of interest now

0:38:250:38:30

as Marcel Hirscher prepares to race.

At Pyeongchang 2018. In action for

0:38:300:38:37

the first time. Since the last

Olympics when he claimed silver

0:38:370:38:42

medal in the slalom. And at the

World Championships in Beaver Creek

0:38:420:38:47

in 20 Deeney took the gold, at the

following worlds in 2017, a claim

0:38:470:38:52

silver in the Alpine combined

events. If he gave reasonably well

0:38:520:38:59

in downhill he will be the man to

catch in the second leg later.

In

0:38:590:39:05

his training runs his best was

McGriff. Taking pressure off the

0:39:050:39:10

outside ski as he went over that

role. He kept balance as he took to

0:39:100:39:15

the air. He can afford to give away

2.5 seconds to Thomas Dressen as

0:39:150:39:21

long as he stays in the top 30. That

is most important thing he has to do

0:39:210:39:27

today, put down a damage limitation

run the downhill.

Hirschel will be

0:39:270:39:34

pretty content with the way his

Olympic campaign has begun.

0:39:340:39:38

Hirschel's one left him in 12th

place, a good position for his

0:39:380:39:42

favourite discipline of slalom to

come. No one could better Dressen.

0:39:420:39:48

His hostess Ron was Axel Swindell to

decided not to start the slalom.

0:39:480:39:54

This was all about practice for the

main downhill. As a slalom

0:39:540:39:59

specialist Alexis Pinturault

finished best.

0:39:590:40:06

finished best. He has given himself

lots of work to do to reach the

0:40:070:40:10

medals.

0:40:100:40:20

He's a good combined skier, he has

one World Cup combined event this

0:40:200:40:27

season and he starting on a nice,

clean track.

There is a lot of set

0:40:270:40:32

in this one and with an early start

number, a means to put a good run

0:40:320:40:36

down. 2.23 down on the winner of the

first run, Thomas Dressen, so you

0:40:360:40:44

will be disappointed with the

downhill, but he has got a chance.

0:40:440:40:46

He could get a medal from this

position if he puts down a great

0:40:460:40:51

slalom run.

No one has gone down

before him so he has a nice, fresh

0:40:510:40:56

canvas underfoot, and he's carving

some sweet tones, the Frenchman,

0:40:560:41:01

races for his club in Val d'Isere.

His slalom is two minutes .75

0:41:010:41:12

seconds. Now, Marcel Hirscher, the

best combined skier in the role, he

0:41:120:41:19

has a one second advantage over the

Frenchman after the first run. The

0:41:190:41:24

one thing that is missing from his

trophy cabinet is an Olympic gold

0:41:240:41:28

medal. Can you put that right today?

It is looking for the good but not

0:41:280:41:37

as clean as Muffat-Jeandet on this

first part of the course. Marcel

0:41:370:41:45

Hirscher is doing what he does best.

The wind is there, but he's battling

0:41:450:41:52

his way through it. He doesn't seem

to care. The wind is whipping up,

0:41:520:41:58

trying its best to stretch Marcel

Hirscher will, can you do enough to

0:41:580:42:03

move into gold medal position over

Muffat-Jeandet?

0:42:030:42:10

Muffat-Jeandet? Glorious slalom

skiing from Marcel Hirscher.

He has

0:42:100:42:14

seen off one of the French

challengers. He will be unhappy with

0:42:140:42:18

that wind, he will want output down

more of a lead over Victor

0:42:180:42:24

Muffat-Jeandet. He will have a

nervous weight now for the run of

0:42:240:42:31

Alexis Pinturault of France. He is

ready to race for the final today.

0:42:310:42:37

He pushes hard out of the start

gate. He doesn't have a lot over

0:42:370:42:45

Marcel Hirscher. He has started off

well enough, a little stumble, he

0:42:450:42:52

has counter rotated, and a great

recovery from Pinturault but again

0:42:520:42:56

the same mistake. Just jetted out on

the turn. Now Pinturault finds

0:42:560:43:02

himself behind Marcel Hirscher. He

has turned on the red light for the

0:43:020:43:08

first time, 0.1 four. It is still

good enough potentially for silver

0:43:080:43:12

medal position but there is no way,

because Marcel Hirscher were so

0:43:120:43:18

quick on the bottom part of the

course. There is no way that hate

0:43:180:43:22

you can move into gold, he has gone

into second. He didn't have the wind

0:43:220:43:26

on the second part of the course, he

was able to catch up some but that

0:43:260:43:31

is what we thought and that seems

all decided now. So, back to the top

0:43:310:43:37

and with one to come, Marcel

Hirscher and Alexis Pinturault are

0:43:370:43:43

guaranteed medals.

0:43:430:43:48

guaranteed medals. Can Thomas

Dressen snatch the bronze? He is

0:43:510:43:52

often a steady start.

Steady is the

operative word. He's going to let

0:43:520:43:58

slip half of his lead with half a

second up. Canny squeeze into the

0:43:580:44:01

bronze medal position? If he wants

the bronzes got to finish within

0:44:010:44:07

1.01 seconds of Marcel Hirscher. He

trails the great Austrian by .43

0:44:070:44:15

seconds. What will he be down at the

split? It has grown to 1.5 six. It

0:44:150:44:23

is almost certainly out of reach

now, and the French are starting to

0:44:230:44:27

think that they will take two medals

after the men's Alpine combined as

0:44:270:44:33

Thomas Dressen lives dangerously but

vanishes in ninth. The medals are

0:44:330:44:37

decided.

At last, Marcel Hirscher is

an Olympic champion. He takes the

0:44:370:44:44

men's Alpine combined gold.

0:44:440:44:50

men's Alpine combined gold. The

bronze

0:44:500:44:51

men's Alpine combined gold. The

bronze goes to Victor

0:44:510:44:51

Muffat-Jeandet. Marcel Hirscher

always said the Olympics were not

0:44:510:44:56

his main motivation. I did believe

that. Six months ago it looked like

0:44:560:45:02

he might not make it.

He fractured

his ankle. The first event was

0:45:020:45:08

cancelled and then in his second

race back, the slalom, he won. He

0:45:080:45:13

had that muscle memory. It took the

pressure completely off. I don't

0:45:130:45:16

think that's what he was really

thinking and you could see that from

0:45:160:45:20

his reaction. He was going for the

gold, and he needed that to start

0:45:200:45:23

making possibly history.

0:45:230:45:30

This it doesn't favour the technical

skier but look that these

0:45:360:45:39

conditions.

It is so impressive and

he skied through the wind as he made

0:45:390:45:43

speed through it and that shows the

confidence of his slalom skiing

0:45:430:45:47

right now.

What is he like as a

guide?

I will be honest, I didn't

0:45:470:45:52

know him early in my career when he

was winning everything and I wanted

0:45:520:45:55

to not like him because he was too

good but then I met him and he is so

0:45:550:45:59

nice and so respectful and he has

such good words to say to anyone who

0:45:590:46:10

beats MMT is the biggest fan of Dave

Ryding. He was once to train with

0:46:100:46:13

him and pick up tips from him. But

Dave has less to learn from Marcel

0:46:130:46:16

Hirscher because it is a secret

technique that not everyone can do.

0:46:160:46:22

Bode Miller is a massive fan of

Michaela Shiffrin.

0:46:220:46:34

The next Alpine skiing event

is the Women's Slalom which begins

0:46:350:46:38

tomorrow morning at 1.15am.

0:46:380:46:39

Michaela Shiffrin will be looking

to hit all the right notes.

0:46:390:46:47

She is in a league of her own!

0:46:550:46:57

She is in a league of her own!

0:46:570:47:06

A third successive world title! She

is the Olympic champion at 18.

0:47:080:47:19

She is multitalented and she is

singing her own song there.

She is

0:47:320:47:37

singing she wishes she could be a

cool kid but I think she is the

0:47:370:47:40

coolest kid on the block. She is

amazing and super-talented. A lot of

0:47:400:47:43

ski racers are created with music in

that way but she has incredible

0:47:430:47:47

skills. We are always putting the

blue boxes and calling them

0:47:470:47:50

technical or speed skiers but she

won the first speed race of the

0:47:500:47:55

season. She had the red bib and then

didn't start the other races so for

0:47:550:48:01

the other girls it is a kick in the

teeth that someone can come in. She

0:48:010:48:04

comes in and winds that downhill but

look at her downhill.

She could be

0:48:040:48:10

taking multiple events here, she

hasn't taken on her mind -- made up

0:48:100:48:16

her mind yet. She has been said to

be the best ski racer ever, male or

0:48:160:48:24

female, that is from Bode Miller.

He

has said she could take five gold

0:48:240:48:30

medals from that. We have seen in

all winter sports you need a bit of

0:48:300:48:33

luck so it would be incredible and

all the stars would have to align

0:48:330:48:36

but she is so talented.

We will see

our first two British women in

0:48:360:48:43

Alpine action.

Alex Tilley is a

better skier than I was technically

0:48:430:48:47

so strong. If she gets her tactics

right she could up there with the

0:48:470:48:51

best in the world. Charlie Guest has

made it the great fightback after a

0:48:510:48:56

back injury to make this team and

she is a secret squirrel.

0:48:560:49:08

The luge, Germanic. 42 medals.

Be

flying Germans have done it!

0:49:130:49:33

Domination. Precision engineering.

Expect Germany, expect one, two,

0:49:330:49:43

three.

0:49:430:49:45

Expect Germany, expect one, two,

three.

Here goes the German at

0:49:450:49:50

number two in the world, Dajana

Eitberger.

All of these sliders have

0:49:500:49:56

been so consistent and there is

nothing between them in terms of

0:49:560:50:00

equipment, their driving style and

now it is all about that they know

0:50:000:50:03

how to get down the track and that

they can handle the mental pressure

0:50:030:50:08

of getting the optimum lines and

making sure they are building speed

0:50:080:50:11

all the way up the track, especially

as they come down corner eight and

0:50:110:50:15

into corner nine. It has been

costing so many people. Just a

0:50:150:50:20

little bit late into 12 but

0:50:200:50:28

little bit late into 12 but she got

through straight and this should get

0:50:280:50:29

her to hold on for the lead and put

pressure on the next person. She is

0:50:290:50:33

holding a big gap.

Dajana Eitberger

looks as though she will be forth

0:50:330:50:35

that the very worst. We knew from

the men that anything can happen

0:50:350:50:40

with the big three. It is a strong

run and she knows it.

One down and

0:50:400:50:45

two to go. Tatjana Hufner is 34 and

a legend of this sport. She's

0:50:450:50:53

usually rock-solid. Can she hold a

nerve?

We will find out at the

0:50:530:51:01

bottom. It is so close. If she makes

one mistake it is easy for her to

0:51:010:51:07

drop back two places, which will

then bump the Canadian back into

0:51:070:51:11

bronze. We saw this the other day,

and that could have been a mistake

0:51:110:51:14

there. Is it enough. She will have

to drive the curve to keep these

0:51:140:51:20

speed. She is keeping a consistent

line but is there enough track left?

0:51:200:51:24

This could be it and the difference.

Will she lose it coming up the hill?

0:51:240:51:30

This is so dramatic, at the hilt of

the line. It is all very tight. She

0:51:300:51:38

is down to third at the moment.

Natalie Geisenberger, to create

0:51:380:51:46

history and win it for the second

time and Dajana Eitberger waits in

0:51:460:51:50

the wings. The best in the world and

the best many have seen in their

0:51:500:51:56

lifetime. Let us now see.

You can

see from the caption she already has

0:51:560:52:01

half a second. We have seen people

making mistakes at the end of the

0:52:010:52:05

Dragons tale and the end of the

chicane and it can cost them over

0:52:050:52:09

half a second and if she gets the

corner right now she is on her way

0:52:090:52:13

to being the Olympic champion in

2018 and she will not lose that

0:52:130:52:19

amount of time in the last few

corners. If she comes through the

0:52:190:52:23

big Olympic corner she is still

holding the 40 51 hundredths of a

0:52:230:52:28

second.

A big lead and she is going

to do it once again just like at

0:52:280:52:32

Sochi and she is the tenth German to

win and only the third to win it

0:52:320:52:39

twice, joining previous luge

athletes. The luge in German

0:52:390:52:52

colours, gold and silver.

Not quite bronze.

0:52:520:52:58

So no clean sweep for

the German women after that

0:52:580:53:00

Tatjana Hufner error.

0:53:000:53:01

Medals are won and lost

by such tiny margins.

0:53:010:53:05

Talking of wobbles, if you go off

track in the luge, this is what can

0:53:050:53:08

happen.

0:53:080:53:10

This is 24-year-old US

luger Emily Sweeney.

0:53:100:53:11

She came in as world number 11.

0:53:110:53:13

A memorable debut for her as she is

flung around the sliding track.

0:53:130:53:17

Emily works for the US military.

0:53:170:53:18

She's obviously made of stern stuff.

0:53:180:53:22

She told reporters after that but

she was OK but she has gone to

0:53:220:53:26

hospital for x-rays on her back and

thank goodness she is walking away,

0:53:260:53:30

but she looks as though she is in a

lot of pain. Now we have Paddy with

0:53:300:53:35

a round-up of what else has been

going on.

0:53:350:53:38

Clockwork orange in the speed

skating, another Dutch victory,

0:53:380:53:40

this time for Kjeld Nuis Nows

in the 1500m.

0:53:400:53:42

Another Netherlander,

Patrick Roest finished second

0:53:420:53:44

and the Dutch have won all four

speed skating golds so far.

0:53:440:53:49

No surprise to see a Norwegian

winning a cross-country skiing

0:53:490:53:52

event, and no surprise to see it's

Johannes Hoesflot-Klaebo,

0:53:520:53:54

who picked up sprint classic gold.

0:53:540:53:58

He's so good a teammate

recently called him

0:53:580:54:00

humiliating and fascinating.

0:54:000:54:04

But in the women's sprint classic

Norway lost out to the neighbours.

0:54:040:54:07

Sweden's Stina Nilsson outskied

the Norwegian defending champion

0:54:070:54:09

Maiken Mighken Caspersen Falla.

0:54:090:54:15

More exciting British news

from skeleton practice.

0:54:150:54:16

Lizzy Yarnold, Britain's

defending champion,

0:54:160:54:18

was quickest in the final run.

0:54:180:54:21

Teammate Laura Deas went

fastest in the first.

0:54:210:54:23

That comes after a very encouraging

first day of training.

0:54:230:54:26

Some are putting it down

to the new suits they're wearing,

0:54:260:54:29

the same ones as British cyclists.

0:54:290:54:30

Could the key to the

skeleton be the skin?

0:54:300:54:34

Ice hockey is a famously fast sport,

but not normally this quick.

0:54:340:54:37

This is American Jocelyn

Lamoureux-Davidson scoring

0:54:370:54:40

against Olympic Athletes of Russia,

and six seconds later this

0:54:400:54:44

is her doing it again.

0:54:440:54:48

That broke an Olympic record.

0:54:480:54:49

The US won 5-0.

0:54:490:54:54

Let us have a look at the medal

table as it

0:54:540:54:56

Let us have a look at the medal

table as it stands at the end of day

0:54:560:54:57

four. Germany lead the way with five

gold medals. Their record is 12.

0:54:570:55:02

They are nearly halfway there and

we're only one quarter of a way

0:55:020:55:07

through the games. They are closely

followed by the Netherlands. The USA

0:55:070:55:12

are going well, helped by the Chloe

Kim gold in this snow pipe, the

0:55:120:55:18

halfpipe, it should be pipe! They

are just behind Canada. Let us go

0:55:180:55:26

off piste.

Our favourite baby super fan has

0:55:260:55:32

today been trying his hand at speed

skating which is very relevant.

0:55:320:55:35

Doing well. This family and friends

were trying out different Winter

0:55:350:55:42

Olympic disciplines. This is baby

Jessica trying her hand at figure

0:55:420:55:49

skating and making plans for the

2034 Olympics. She is doing very

0:55:490:55:54

well abstain on her feet unlike Eva

who takes a tumble trying to emulate

0:55:540:56:08

the ice skaters. This is

extraordinary. What is this?

Is it a

0:56:080:56:14

little kid?

I thought it was kids to

start with.

They do not have heads.

0:56:140:56:20

They are robots. This is the robot

ski Championships. How crazy is the

0:56:200:56:25

world getting?

A new sport for the

Red Button! Red-hot and ice-cold.

0:56:250:56:34

First up, they were minding your own

business am watching the downhill

0:56:340:56:37

part of the combined when someone

out of nowhere hits you, always

0:56:370:56:44

remember where there was blame,

there is a claim. Women's ice

0:56:440:56:51

hockey, no matter what this part is

not going in.

0:56:510:56:54

hockey, no matter what this part is

not going in. You shall not pass. We

0:56:540:57:02

may be passed panto season but this

is a case of Lookout, it is behind

0:57:020:57:05

you. Seriously, it is behind you.

They did end up with a bronze medal

0:57:050:57:14

so there was compensation. Back to

the ice hockey for some magic. Keep

0:57:140:57:17

your eye on the park. Where has it

gone? Where has it gone? Is that

0:57:170:57:23

apart in your pants, refs? It was in

his pocket! Her pocket, I should

0:57:230:57:31

say. Loads more to come on a very

busy day. Radzi is on air at

0:57:310:57:35

midnight and taking a straight to

the curling rink for the matchup

0:57:350:57:38

between the British men and the

Swiss. The British -- halfpipe is

0:57:380:57:43

then featuring Sean White going for

his third Olympic title and then

0:57:430:57:47

Michaela Shiffrin goes in the

women's slalom with her second run

0:57:470:57:50

at 4:45am. Chemmy Alcott will be

setting her alarm early. Then will

0:57:500:57:57

stay up late. Sarah will keep

sending messages because that is the

0:57:570:58:05

day for -- that is it for a day that

started with such great hope for a

0:58:050:58:09

Elise Christie but sport does not go

to plan but Sarah calls her the

0:58:090:58:13

comeback queen and that is the

difference between all of us who

0:58:130:58:16

fall in the greatest to get back up

and try again.

0:58:160:58:23

Elise Christie, the world record

holder at this distance. Is this to

0:58:230:58:29

be her moment?

0:58:290:58:34

be her moment? There they go. A

clean start. Towards the line, Elise

0:58:360:58:39

Christie takes it, the new Olympic

record. Away they go, and they are

0:58:390:58:45

way first time. Christie is

challenging on the inside. But

0:58:450:58:48

towards the line and Elise Christie

is into the final. Away they go in

0:58:480:58:52

the final is on in the getaway first

time. Elise Christie try to have the

0:58:520:58:56

inside line. Elise Christie crashes

out. In her quest for gold, Elise

0:58:560:59:02

Christie ends up on the floor again.

0:59:020:59:07

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

Great Britain's Elise Christie is the standout home hope on day four with the three-time short track speed skating world champion going for gold in the women's 500m.

American snowboarding teenage sensation Chloe Kim starts among the favourites in the women's halfpipe - an event the 17-year-old has dominated for much of the last Olympic cycle.

Compatriot Shaun White begins his bid for a third snowboard halfpipe gold medal, while the men's alpine combined skiing gold medallist is also crowned - one of eight gold medals awarded on day four.
