Previously, at the Winter

Olympics...

Glorious slalom skiing

0:00:130:00:15

from Marcel Hirscher.

Brilliant run

from Chloe Kim.

It is Canada's gold

0:00:150:00:22

medal.

A great day for Germany.

Elise Christie ends up on the floor

0:00:220:00:27

against a green right now... Fuming.

Fontana is the Olympic champion.

0:00:270:00:34

Hello and welcome to

Today at the Games.

0:01:030:01:07

Our regular one our round-up of

everything that has been going on at

0:01:070:01:11

the Winter Olympics and looking at

what you have been up to.

0:01:110:01:16

It's day 5, and we have a packed

show for you tonight.

0:01:160:01:19

Here's what's coming up...

0:01:190:01:22

Targetting his third Olympic title,

Shaun White's wants

0:01:220:01:24

to fly out of sight.

0:01:240:01:25

to fly out of sight.

0:01:250:01:28

As GB start their curling campaign,

we welcome the skip that

0:01:280:01:30

delivered that glorious gold.

0:01:300:01:34

Figure skating and the North Korean

pair will hope their performance

0:01:340:01:37

is as synchronised as their support.

0:01:370:01:44

And keeping the relationship suite

in ice hockey with the unified team

0:01:440:01:48

of Korea.

0:01:480:01:50

And we welcome downhill ski

racer Chemmy Alcott,

0:01:500:01:54

In her special Valentines kit...

0:01:540:01:56

Snowboarder Ben Kilner, and Olympic

gold medal winning figure

0:01:560:01:58

skater Christopher Dean.

0:01:580:02:01

Who doesn't call this Valentine's

Day but?

Bolero day.

And that is why

0:02:010:02:09

you have worn purple. Very good! The

weather in Pyeongchang is playing

0:02:090:02:15

absolute havoc with the schedule,

especially for the Alpine skiing

0:02:150:02:18

events. Have a look at this.

0:02:180:02:23

These were the pictures

from over night from

0:02:230:02:25

the Yongpyong Alpine Centre.

0:02:250:02:27

They were due to be running

the women's slalom,

0:02:270:02:32

but they've been

experiencing high winds

0:02:320:02:35

of over 40 mph.

0:02:350:02:37

In fact, it was so bad that not only

was the slalom postponed,

0:02:370:02:40

the Olympic Park was evacuated

for safety reasons.

0:02:400:02:42

This is the updated schedule

for the skiing events:

0:02:420:02:44

Difficult for those multi-eventing

because it is packed in.

Yes, a huge

0:02:440:02:48

programme.

0:02:480:02:49

because it is packed in.

Yes, a huge

programme. The next few days, good

0:02:490:02:52

conditions. The organisers have seen

that. They have girls racing giants

0:02:520:02:56

linemen, men downhill, then the days

0:02:560:02:59

that. They have girls racing giants

linemen, men downhill, then the days

0:02:590:03:02

after the another discipline, three

and three days, it for those going

0:03:020:03:05

for multiple medal.

The only event

that has gone ahead, the men's

0:03:050:03:08

combined, Marcel Hirscher won it and

he had to deal with really difficult

0:03:080:03:14

conditions. Look at the wind here

for his slalom run.

And in a sport

0:03:140:03:20

where precision, millimetres can be

such a risk and you can straddle and

0:03:200:03:23

come out of the Olympic event, so

important for it to be fair and

0:03:230:03:29

equal. Michaela Shiffrin was glad

today.

Yes, favourite for giant

0:03:290:03:37

slalom and could end up doing...

She

could do all five gold medals here.

0:03:370:03:42

It will be some programme if she

does.

0:03:420:03:44

Well, just under 20 miles away

from the Alpine Centre

0:03:440:03:46

was the Phoenix Snow Park where,

thankfully, the wind wasn't

0:03:460:03:49

too strong to affect

the mens snowboard halfpipe.

0:03:490:03:51

It's a show all of its own

and a final stocked with talent,

0:03:510:03:54

but the name you'll be most familar

with is Shaun White,

0:03:540:03:57

who recently scored a perfect 100 to

ensure his place at this Olympics,

0:03:570:04:01

but his journey to Korea hasn't

been straightforward...

0:04:010:04:08

For 15 years, Shaun White has

dominated half pipe. He seemed to

0:04:110:04:19

possess an unshakeable belief,

beating his competitors before he

0:04:190:04:22

had even dropped in the.

What a

finale.

But four years ago, chasing

0:04:220:04:26

a third gold medal, that belief was

tested, torn.

Shaun White has missed

0:04:260:04:33

out on a medal.

He took time to

refocus, rediscover his will to win

0:04:330:04:38

and return to the pipe. Yet self

belief alone could not protect him

0:04:380:04:44

from the stresses of his sport.

Hospital care and 64 stitches were

0:04:440:04:50

required for that. White's belief

has been tested, perhaps, but his

0:04:500:04:58

ability remains intact. An

incredible 98.5 ensured his place in

0:04:580:05:01

the final, but there was real

pressure here. Riders who believed

0:05:010:05:06

they had the talent and the tricks

to soar above Shaun

0:05:060:05:11

they had the talent and the tricks

to soar above Shaun The format is

0:05:110:05:15

very simple, three runs each rider,

the best run will count.

Sit tight

0:05:150:05:20

ladies and dumped on, it is the

first of the big three. These silver

0:05:200:05:28

medallist from 2014, Ayumu Hirano.

What will he give us on this first

0:05:280:05:31

run?

0:05:310:05:36

You can hear the collective ahh of

the crowd as he goes stratospheric.

0:05:360:05:42

240. 1080. Oh, no.

Ayumu Hirano, the

19-year-old is a veteran. He has

0:05:420:05:51

been riding at the highest level for

eight years. He turned up at the US

0:05:510:05:55

Open when he was just 11 and

approached the half pipe there. Next

0:05:550:06:01

in, Scotty James. So much has been

said about this man. He certainly

0:06:010:06:06

looks relaxed. The classic run is 12

to 12. Frontside 1260. Oh my

0:06:060:06:16

goodness, there it is! Backside

1260. Back-to-back 12s done.

Huge

0:06:160:06:29

crippler. Now switch, backside.

1260! There it is. He's done it!

0:06:290:06:38

What a run to lay down first go. The

judges will be melting over that.

0:06:380:06:46

This is the switch backside 1260,

approaching a pipe wall at Mac ten

0:06:460:06:51

on your heels, switch is the hardest

thing to do in pipe. Not only can

0:06:510:06:56

Scotty James do it revolve 1260

degrees when he gets there. This

0:06:560:07:03

goal will be ridiculous. 92! -- this

score will be ridiculous. Scotty

0:07:030:07:10

James moves into first place and

Shaun White knows the heat is on

0:07:100:07:13

already. It is only first runs,

ladies and undermined, and Shaun

0:07:130:07:18

White is getting a little nudge from

Scotty James.

This is where Shaun

0:07:180:07:25

White comes into his own. He is

brilliant under pressure. 1440 to

0:07:250:07:30

start. Oh my goodness! Absolutely

massive! Into switch 1080.

Maybe

0:07:300:07:40

lost a tiny bit of speed in the flat

bottomed.

He needs to put this down,

0:07:400:07:45

which he does. He holds on, how did

he hold onto that? Frontside 12. He

0:07:450:07:51

had to tuck his head in, it was like

he was landing in the barrel of a

0:07:510:07:56

wave. He just lost his helmet into

the crowd, his helmet has gone into

0:07:560:08:00

the crowd. He looks like he's been

electrocuted.

What are they doing,

0:08:000:08:05

they are behaving like it is the

third run! I need that back, he

0:08:050:08:09

said. Yes, you do, it is not over

yet.

I cannot believe that run,

0:08:090:08:15

under the pressure like that. The

cab 1080 double cork.

We know where

0:08:150:08:22

it will improve and is there, if he

gets polished it will be a 1440.

0:08:220:08:28

Look at him! It's his first run!

LAUGHTER

0:08:280:08:36

94.25. Shaun White is claiming it.

Take a breath, calm yourself down.

0:08:390:08:46

Let's settle ourselves for run two.

OK, next rider in, Ayumu Hirano,

0:08:460:08:56

fell on his first run. Can he put a

solid one together now?

0:08:560:09:04

Stratospheric backside air from him.

Frontside 14. Has he got the speed

0:09:040:09:12

for the switch 14 question might

yes, he has. Back-to-back 1440s.

0:09:120:09:18

Frontside 12 of the will this be a

frontside 1260?

He makes it look

0:09:180:09:23

easy, you knew he would land it from

the moment he took off! Ladies and

0:09:230:09:28

gentlemen, the heat is on, it's on

the street.

Ayumu Hirano has landed

0:09:280:09:34

the biggest run there is in half

pipe snowboarding right now.

And

0:09:340:09:40

just look at the composure. The grab

is held together, helping him keep

0:09:400:09:48

tight in that spin as fast as he is.

Shaun White is in the biggest fight

0:09:480:09:54

of his Olympic career. He has never

been put under this pressure.

0:09:540:09:58

Absolutely amazing.

0:09:580:10:04

Absolutely amazing.

95.25, Ayumu

Hirano moves into first place!

I'm

0:10:050:10:10

just going to rip this script up

here.

OK.

Just ripping the script

0:10:100:10:15

up, it's gone.

Scotty James, the

Australian. He was furious when he

0:10:150:10:21

lost out to Shaun White three weeks

ago. He landed the best run of his

0:10:210:10:27

life and Shaun White scored a

perfect 100 to steal his glory. Can

0:10:270:10:34

he redeem himself here? Frontside

1260.

It was massive, into backside

0:10:340:10:40

1260. That is the best one he has

ever done of those.

Frontside 1080.

0:10:400:10:47

Wow! I'm holding my breath.

Backside

1260 with the hands down. He has

0:10:470:10:57

tried to claim it at the end but not

with conviction, is it?

Well, he's

0:10:570:11:05

still in third place.

Ayumu Hirano

tops the leaderboard. Shaun White is

0:11:050:11:12

in second place. That is the number

we are used to seeing next to Shaun

0:11:120:11:15

White's name at the Olympics. This

is a man who is so used to being

0:11:150:11:20

given the luxury of a victory lap.

Now he is in the fight of his life

0:11:200:11:25

for his third Olympic gold medal.

Winds up into a huge frontside 1440.

0:11:250:11:31

Are we going to see the 14 here? It

is low... Yes!

He puts it down but

0:11:310:11:38

he has lost all of his momentum into

the 540. The Tomahawk... It's not

0:11:380:11:45

there! Is he cracking under the

pressure? The first run helmet throw

0:11:450:11:53

feels very long way away for Shaun

White right now.

He will remain in

0:11:530:11:58

second. He's still smiling.

Just!

This is incredible. Third and final

0:11:580:12:08

descent. The Japanese rider, Ayumu

Hirano, currently in gold medal

0:12:080:12:12

position. He has just landed the

biggest run in half pipe

0:12:120:12:16

snowboarding. Can he better it? Keep

up, cameraman!

Enormous backside

0:12:160:12:27

air. 14. He has landed flat... It

has killed all of his speed.

He has

0:12:270:12:31

had to go for the ten. It is not to

be.

He has gone on the front 12.

So,

0:12:310:12:41

huge weight for Ayumu Hirano. Scotty

James and Shaun White are still to

0:12:410:12:49

drop. The Australian coach

0:12:490:12:56

drop. The Australian coach talking

to the famously competitive

0:12:570:12:58

Australian, Scotty James. He has got

to lay down the run of his life now

0:12:580:13:02

if he is going to overall Ayumu

Hirano.

He doesn't wear boxing

0:13:020:13:08

gloves by coincidence, he is here to

do battle. He needs the run of his

0:13:080:13:13

life here. Big frontside 1260.

Backside 1260. Camera, join us.

0:13:130:13:22

There it is. Oooh! Oh no!

Scotty

James will be the bronze medallist

0:13:220:13:29

today. Shaun White, the most

successful half pipe snowboarder of

0:13:290:13:38

all time. Every time he's taken the

gold, it's been with the luxury of a

0:13:380:13:43

victory lap. Now he is under

pressure. He needs 95.25 and the run

0:13:430:13:47

of his life.

Frontside 1440. Switch

1440. The sky hook. The fixture of

0:13:470:14:01

every winning Shaun White run.

Plenty of time for that... Yes,

0:14:010:14:07

now... Shaun White, can he?

He's

landed it.

Oh my goodness! It is no

0:14:070:14:13

longer about the snowboarding, it is

all about the judges. Shaun White

0:14:130:14:17

might have done it.

The difference

between them is a backside air and

0:14:170:14:23

frontside 540. This could be it.

Judges, but the world out of its

0:14:230:14:29

misery. Shaun White is the gold

medallist here in 2018! That was an

0:14:290:14:37

incredible display of half pipe

snowboarding. Look what it means.

My

0:14:370:14:42

incredible display of half pipe

snowboarding. Look what it means.

My

0:14:420:14:42

first run was really great. I did

the biggest 14 of my life. I don't

0:14:420:14:47

think I'll ever do do do do an Nash

set the tone for the rest of the

0:14:470:14:53

condition. I was really hoping that

was just going to hold, skate into

0:14:530:14:56

the first. Ayumu Hirano put down an

amazing run and I knew I had to step

0:14:560:15:02

it up. Last run, pressure was on and

I put it down, it was great.

0:15:020:15:10

Ben is with us, our snowboarding

expert. You have competed with him.

0:15:100:15:15

The emotions he showed afterwards, I

mean, he has done things in his

0:15:150:15:18

life, but nothing as big as this.

I

have never seen Shaun White so

0:15:180:15:23

emotional. I saw the clip of him

crying, and he has seen his mum and

0:15:230:15:27

dad. It is all coming out. It meant

so much for him to get the gold at

0:15:270:15:32

this game. He came back from that

big crash when he had 64 stitches.

0:15:320:15:38

You could hear him saying to his

mother, it meant so much, I worked

0:15:380:15:42

so hard.

What was different about

this one? This time, he had to pull

0:15:420:15:49

out everything.

Snowboarding half

pipe has never seen such a big

0:15:490:15:52

battle like this for the top three

positions. I think Ayumu put so much

0:15:520:15:59

pressure on Shaun White that Shaun

White thrives under it and he has

0:15:590:16:02

pulled this run out of the bag,

back-to-back 1440s, back-to-back

0:16:020:16:09

1260s. He is clearly delighted.

Although he had been a double

0:16:090:16:14

Olympic champion, not making a

podium in Sochi meant he had to

0:16:140:16:18

prove he was the greatest?

I think

that has certainly fuelled his fire.

0:16:180:16:22

He worked so hard to get to the top

of his game will stop after Sochi,

0:16:220:16:28

he disappeared off the scene for a

while, but he has put in all the

0:16:280:16:32

training hours to get back where he

is, at the top of the sport.

The

0:16:320:16:36

first snowboarder to win three

Olympic gold medals, completing the

0:16:360:16:41

clean sweep for the USA. Some of

their winners are teenagers, some of

0:16:410:16:46

them veterans.

The 100th medal for

the USA, I think.

500th is what I

0:16:460:16:54

want to say. I think... I'm looking

at Chemmy, going, come on, help

0:16:540:17:00

media!

Big numbers.

He gets an awful

lot of praise and the big names love

0:17:000:17:08

him, but...

0:17:080:17:12

during his press conference

Shaun White was asked about a past

0:17:120:17:15

sexual harassment allegation -

which he referred to as "gossip".

0:17:150:17:17

White had previously admitted

to sending lewd text messages

0:17:170:17:19

to former band member Lena Zawaideh

and the case was settled out

0:17:190:17:22

of court for an undisclosed sum.

0:17:220:17:24

The 31-year-old has since apologised

for referring to those allegations

0:17:240:17:26

against him as "gossip".

0:17:260:17:31

There is more snowboarding to come

at 4:30am.

0:17:310:17:37

Three more events left

in the snowboarding competition.

0:17:370:17:39

New for this year is the Big Air,

then there's the combative parallel

0:17:390:17:42

giant slalom, but tomorrow it's

the snowboard cross.

0:17:420:17:44

This is ridiculous -

but in a good way!

0:17:440:17:52

COMMENTATOR:

A merciless format.

0:17:540:18:00

It's going to come down to the wire!

It's going to be difficult to catch

0:18:000:18:05

him. This is getting very tight. The

Italian has gone down! Wow!

0:18:050:18:19

COMMENTATOR:

Rhona Martin, one last

delivery for Olympic gold. It's on

0:18:250:18:31

its way. So much depending on one

stone. It needs to be absolutely

0:18:310:18:42

perfect, right in the centre of the

house. It's looking good. She's done

0:18:420:18:49

it! It is Olympic gold for Great

Britain.

And the Golden skip is with

0:18:490:18:59

me, Rhona Howie in the house. You

always get asked about what you were

0:18:590:19:03

thinking when you deliver that

stone, but it is interesting if we

0:19:030:19:06

look at it again, how nearly it

could have ended in disaster. Keep

0:19:060:19:11

your eye on Fiona MacDonald and what

she does with her brush. What nearly

0:19:110:19:16

happened?

My stone is still

travelling, so if that brush had hit

0:19:160:19:20

that stone, it is a running stone

and it would have been removed.

And

0:19:200:19:25

it would have been over.

It would

have been a burnt stone, so that

0:19:250:19:29

would have been scary.

I'm glad I

didn't realise that at the time! Do

0:19:290:19:36

you enjoyed watching curling still?

Do you get in gross?

Definitely. Any

0:19:360:19:42

games you watch, you are really

competitive.

And we have two very

0:19:420:19:47

good Great Britain teams, men's and

women's. What do you predict might

0:19:470:19:50

happen by the end of these games?

Both teams have put in a lot of hard

0:19:500:19:55

work to get to where they are this

year, and both have got a very good

0:19:550:19:59

medal chance. They have a lot of

experience and medals behind them,

0:19:590:20:06

the women, but the boys haven't.

They have less multisport

0:20:060:20:10

experience, but they are there to do

a job. I think we will see them

0:20:100:20:15

both, come the end of the week.

And

they are all very closely related.

0:20:150:20:19

For Team GB, curling

is a family affair.

0:20:190:20:21

There are not many degrees

of separation between the two rinks.

0:20:210:20:23

It's more Game of Stones

than Game of Thrones.

0:20:230:20:26

Winter is not just

coming, it's here...

0:20:260:20:29

Curling runs in the blood, dynasty

is carved in ice and snow. The clan

0:20:340:20:41

Muirhead at the top of the tree.

King Gordon once on top of the

0:20:410:20:45

world. Eve

0:20:450:20:49

King Gordon once on top of the

world. Eve, ice cream, cast in

0:20:490:20:50

bronze format years ago. Their

destiny awaits. Meanwhile, another

0:20:500:20:57

bloodline runs. Two brothers, David,

Peter, both champion Smiths. Their

0:20:570:21:07

kin have been drawn to the stones.

Kyle and Cameron stand together. Two

0:21:070:21:13

houses are like in dignity, united

in curling.

0:21:130:21:17

It is the spot that gets everyone

sweeping and shouting at each other.

0:21:360:21:40

Eve Muirhead and her European

0:21:400:21:41

champion rink started

0:21:410:21:42

their campaign against OAR -

on paper this looked

0:21:420:21:44

like a tricky encounter.

0:21:440:21:45

Here's Paddy with the story.

0:21:450:21:47

For years on from their smash hit,

that bronze in Sochi...

Goodness me,

0:21:520:21:58

did they deserve that!

Eve Muirhead

and the band are on tour once more,

0:21:580:22:03

this time on league, Lauren Gray,

alongside the original line-up of

0:22:030:22:08

Nicky Adams and Anna Sloan.

A tricky

start for the British quartet.

So to

0:22:080:22:15

the new material. They opened with

some classic Stones, rocking out the

0:22:150:22:21

the new material. They opened with

some classic Stones, rocking out the

0:22:210:22:21

first end completely. Three points.

A great start for Great Britain. And

0:22:210:22:25

for Eve Muirhead.

0:22:250:22:31

for Eve Muirhead.

Eve Muirhead well

and truly had her eye in.

Well done,

0:22:330:22:37

Eve Muirhead, and a whole team,

pulling really well together here, a

0:22:370:22:42

wonderful start to their first

match. Great Britain pick up another

0:22:420:22:45

two.

Olympic athletes of Russia had

barely feature. They try to counter

0:22:450:22:50

the setbacks with healthy snacks.

They made an impact in the next end,

0:22:500:22:56

two points. Maybe the comeback was

on.

To there for the Olympic

0:22:560:23:01

athletes of Russia.

Eve has seen it

all before, though. Curling is known

0:23:010:23:11

as chess on ice, and she is a

grandmaster. Having arranged the

0:23:110:23:16

pieces, she used the last shot on

the next end devastatingly. That put

0:23:160:23:25

the OAR in such a spot that they

realised all was lost.

She has done,

0:23:250:23:30

superbly well, another good shot.

Four for Great Britain. There is the

0:23:300:23:34

handshake. It has been a poor match

from a Ayumu Hirano -- from the OAR

0:23:340:23:42

point of view.

It is crucial to get

off to a strong start in these major

0:23:420:23:51

championships. We did that, played a

clinical game. To get one win on the

0:23:510:23:56

board after day one is nice.

I hope

you set your Valentine's card before

0:23:560:24:02

you left?

I set one, but I didn't

get one back!

Valentines cards have

0:24:020:24:09

gone missing. Rona, were you

impressed

0:24:090:24:14

gone missing. Rona, were you

impressed with how they started so

0:24:140:24:16

strongly?

Absolutely, to get three

in the first end at the Olympic

0:24:160:24:19

Games, they were setting them up

from the word go, and they were

0:24:190:24:22

there to do a job today. They played

very well.

Eve Muirhead is so

0:24:220:24:28

experienced, still only young, but

this is her third Olympic Games and

0:24:280:24:32

she knows the intensity and

atmosphere of it. I get the

0:24:320:24:36

impression that that bronze medal

four years ago just wasn't good

0:24:360:24:39

enough for

0:24:390:24:39

four years ago just wasn't good

enough for her.

Absolutely not. She

0:24:390:24:43

wants gold. She has that from

Europeans, from world juniors. She

0:24:430:24:48

wants the whole set.

It didn't even

go to ten ends because Great Britain

0:24:480:24:53

was so far in front. They could

afford the luxury of, that's it, and

0:24:530:24:56

it's done. I say that like it is

straightforward, and it is not,

0:24:560:25:02

clearly.

It is always good to have

that the because you are getting to

0:25:020:25:06

grips with the ice. You are finding

out what it's doing for the rest of

0:25:060:25:10

the week, so it was nice to have

that cushion that they could play

0:25:100:25:13

the ice, learn about it and really

set them up for the week.

In your

0:25:130:25:18

opinion, what is the key to a good

team, a rink, as you would call it

0:25:180:25:27

in curling?

As well as being

tactically sound, they have to be

0:25:270:25:31

mentally fit. A game is two and a

half hours and they have nine

0:25:310:25:34

round-robin games to play, so they

have to be focused on the whole

0:25:340:25:37

time. It is being able to switch on

and switch off again at the right

0:25:370:25:41

time. The mental side of the game

and the team dynamics are huge. You

0:25:410:25:45

have four different people playing

together with the same goal, so how

0:25:450:25:49

did a achieve that when they all

have different foibles on the ice?

0:25:490:25:53

It is important that they all get

on.

We will catch up with the men

0:25:530:25:59

later, but we will stay on the ice

and go figure skating. Today was the

0:25:590:26:03

first day of the pairs competition,

and the short programme. The North

0:26:030:26:09

Korean cheerleaders were out in

force again to support the

0:26:090:26:12

competitors in pairs short programme

at the Gangneung Ice Arena.

0:26:120:26:23

They secured a place in the top 16,

the American couple. Harley Windsor

0:26:320:26:38

became the first indigenous

Australian to compete at the Winter

0:26:380:26:41

Olympics. Sadly, the 20-year-old and

his partner, the current world you

0:26:410:26:49

figure skating champion, just missed

out on a place in the free

0:26:490:26:52

programme, finishing 18th. Another

first came courtesy of Olympic

0:26:520:26:59

diplomacy, with the inclusion of the

pair from North Korea. They became

0:26:590:27:05

the only North Korean athletes to

qualify for the 2018 games on merit.

0:27:050:27:10

Triple twist... Easy.

0:27:100:27:21

Triple twist... Easy. Triple toe

loops. Yes.

0:27:210:27:27

Another triple loop.

0:27:410:27:52

Taking their moment of history in

their stride.

0:27:570:28:03

their stride.

But it was the

reigning world champions, whingeing

0:28:050:28:08

to unsung and whom everyone had come

to see.

0:28:080:28:16

--...

What a comeback for them to

come back from terrible injury that

0:28:210:28:30

she had, double surgery on both feet

and had to learn to walk again.

0:28:300:28:38

and had to learn to walk again.

The

size of this triple flip, absolutely

0:28:380:28:41

glorious. The throw is absolutely

exquisite. She is flying across the

0:28:410:28:47

ice. It is the quality of the

elements, and there are pluses on

0:28:470:28:53

every single element from judges for

degrees of execution. Level four for

0:28:530:28:58

every single element that they have

got there.

And that is why they are

0:28:580:29:04

the world champions. She is ice

cool. She is known amongst her fans

0:29:040:29:10

as the Empress.

Their score of 82.39

put the pressure firmly on the

0:29:100:29:15

Canadian pair, Megan do

0:29:150:29:21

Canadian pair, Megan do Hammill and

Eric Radford, who already had a team

0:29:210:29:25

gold in the bag.

0:29:250:29:30

gold in the bag. -- Duhamel.

There

is a foot down on the landing as

0:29:300:29:34

well. Their jump of choice, side by

side triples. The hardest jump in

0:29:340:29:40

the pairs event. Their second

element. They make them happen,

0:29:400:29:49

though they weren't the prettiest or

the cleanest, but they were there.

0:29:490:29:55

Was 76.82 enough to keep the

Canadians in the top three? Hot on

0:29:550:29:59

their skates was the 2014 bronze

medallist and her new partner.

0:29:590:30:11

COMMENTATOR: Got the height on the

twist.

That was massive!

0:30:120:30:23

Oh, Bruno. Just a double Salchow.

Just missed that jump.

Such a costly

0:30:260:30:32

error.

0:30:320:30:34

Tantalisingly close, but that

mistake by Bruno kept them an

0:30:380:30:42

eyelash below the Canadians. So last

on the ice and with a chance to

0:30:420:30:48

topple the Chinese from the top

spot, the European champions from

0:30:480:30:52

Olympic athletes of Russia, Evgenia

Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov.

0:30:520:30:58

COMMENTATOR: Exquisite, triple

twist, light, great flight across

0:30:580:31:03

the ice and beautiful control. They

will do the same on the side triple

0:31:030:31:11

toe loops? Yes. Look at the timing

here. Absolute perfection.

0:31:110:31:23

The European champions faultless

once again.

STUDIO: Confirmation of

0:31:400:31:48

the schools, the top 16 all through

to Tamara's free skate competition.

0:31:480:31:53

The Olympic Athletes from Russia

unable to knock the world champions

0:31:530:31:55

of the number one position but all

still very much to play for as they

0:31:550:31:59

skate for the medals and there will

undoubtedly be more sensational ice

0:31:590:32:04

actions of these bands to cheer

about.

0:32:040:32:05

actions of these bands to cheer

about. You see, they'd be good, got

0:32:050:32:09

to get everything in time. Tell me

what impressed you most today,

0:32:090:32:11

Chris?

The Chinese, clearly. They

had everything going for them. Their

0:32:110:32:19

choreography is exquisite. Their

athleticism is amazing. And their

0:32:190:32:22

unison was so together, everything

that they do. They have had a rough

0:32:220:32:28

go of it, because she was injured,

but they have peaked just that the

0:32:280:32:34

right time, ready for the Olympics.

Judging by this short programme,

0:32:340:32:37

they are going to be the couple to

beat, clearly.

And even though they

0:32:370:32:42

are in the lead, you believe they

had time for a quad?

Some couples

0:32:420:32:47

will be doing that in the long

programme. The show programme has

0:32:470:32:51

required elements and that's what

they have to do.

They didn't have to

0:32:510:32:53

do it?

Absolutely.

You have to

question about the long and short

0:32:530:32:59

programmes?

The short programme is

more controlled, they have to tick a

0:32:590:33:03

box, they can't be free and

expressive, that is left of the long

0:33:030:33:06

programme?

The elements are required

elements they have to do in the

0:33:060:33:11

short programme, it is only two and

a half minutes. The long programme

0:33:110:33:14

is for and a half minutes. It is

more open of what they can put into

0:33:140:33:18

it. There are still requirements but

they can do better elements.

If

0:33:180:33:23

anyone is going to challenge the

Chinese, will it be the layer?

It's

0:33:230:33:28

going to be, yes, the Russian

Olympic athletes. I believe so. The

0:33:280:33:35

Germans would have been in

contention, but I think they may

0:33:350:33:39

have ruled themselves out with that

slight mistake.

The Germans are

0:33:390:33:43

interesting. You have been helping

them with their long programme cuts,

0:33:430:33:46

yes.

We will see the mistake they

made. They are quite different in

0:33:460:33:50

height but that is not the reason

this goes wrong?

No, he just came

0:33:500:33:55

out of the jump early, doubled it

rather than the triple, so you don't

0:33:550:33:59

get the points for that. It left

them in fourth position. To be vying

0:33:590:34:05

for the medal... Aliona is the most

competitive person I have ever met.

0:34:050:34:08

This is her fifth Olympics. Over 16

years she has been at this level of

0:34:080:34:13

competition. When I work with them,

after four hours she will say, we

0:34:130:34:17

don't need to stop, we need to keep

going. Bruno is more like, I'm done!

0:34:170:34:23

And you are thinking, can I go home!

The North Koreans got huge

0:34:230:34:27

reception.

They got there by merit,

as well. They did a junior

0:34:270:34:34

competition which was a qualifying

competition. They finished in the

0:34:340:34:38

top six, which got them there

totally on merit. As a new country

0:34:380:34:43

figure skating, they have done

amazingly well. I was really

0:34:430:34:46

surprised how good and technical

they were and artistic from the

0:34:460:34:50

go-getter.

We were laughing a stay

at Chloe Kim having sent to tweet

0:34:500:34:55

about not eating breakfast

0:34:550:34:56

at Chloe Kim having sent to tweet

about not eating breakfast just

0:34:560:34:56

before she tweeted. This was the

funniest from the figure skating.

0:34:560:35:03

I would leave it there, I think!

TMI.

There are quite a lot of these

0:35:070:35:15

stories! Anyway... I trust she has

recovered her phone. If you want to

0:35:150:35:21

see extended highlights of the pairs

figure skating, tune in to BBC for

0:35:210:35:25

as soon as we come off air at 8pm.

The final of the pairs is a free

0:35:250:35:31

programme which opens in the early

hours tomorrow morning.

0:35:310:35:34

With the rescheduled mens downhill

we'll be hoping to get to it

0:35:340:35:37

live from around 4am,

we will of course have

0:35:370:35:40

the best of it here

on the highlights programme.

0:35:400:35:42

Here is what is still to come...

0:35:420:35:45

Suits you - thanks to high

tech new body suits,

0:35:450:35:47

our skeleton sliders

are slipping serenely.

0:35:470:35:51

Double bubble for the British lads

in the curling today, two matches

0:35:510:35:55

against tough opposition.

0:35:550:35:58

In the mens ice hockey,

the OAR are red hot favourites.

0:35:590:36:02

Can the Slovaks cause an upset?

0:36:020:36:08

I like, I like.

0:36:150:36:18

LAUGHTER

0:36:240:36:32

LAUGHTER

0:36:340:36:36

Why are you going oh no? It was

funny. Loads of people are filling

0:36:410:36:46

their kids into doing the housework.

Sweeping away! LAUGHTER

0:36:460:36:50

Anyway, obviously figure skating and

curling a hugely successful Olympic

0:36:500:36:55

sports for Great Britain but the

most successful in the 21st-century

0:36:550:36:59

skeleton. We have four sliders

targeting the podium, posting fast

0:36:590:37:05

trial times.

0:37:050:37:07

targeting the podium, posting fast

trial times.

0:37:070:37:08

trial times.

0:37:080:37:11

Laura Deas one of the fastest

starters in the field.

0:37:110:37:15

Dom Parsons, boy can he run!

0:37:210:37:28

Lizzy Yarnold is the Olympic

champion, oh my goodness!

0:37:300:37:41

If you have a look at the positions

they have been an intensive practice

0:37:410:37:44

times, they are going very, very

quick. Laura Deas the second

0:37:440:37:48

fastest. For the first three runs,

coming off the pace a bit since

0:37:480:37:52

then. Lizzy Yarnold has been getting

stronger, consistently posting top

0:37:520:37:56

three times in her last three times.

Dom Parsons was going so well, he

0:37:560:38:01

didn't bother with run five and six

in training. So getting into the

0:38:010:38:06

skeleton and behind the new

technology is Matt Pinsent.

0:38:060:38:09

The sport of skeleton has a proud

recent history for Team GB, none

0:38:130:38:16

more so than Lizzy Yarnold's

fantastic gold medal in Sochi four

0:38:160:38:22

years ago.

0:38:220:38:23

Lizzy Yarnold is the Olympic

champion, oh my goodness! But in the

0:38:270:38:31

past couple of years Lizzie, Laura

Deas and Dom Parsons and leading

0:38:310:38:36

skeleton riders have been a bit hit

and miss. However, on arrival here,

0:38:360:38:41

the Brits have gone from outside

contenders to the sleds to beat,

0:38:410:38:47

topping times in training. It has

left some of the other nations

0:38:470:38:50

wondering what on earth is going on.

I was notified this morning about

0:38:500:38:57

the suits. It's curious to know if

that is legal. I don't think it has

0:38:570:39:02

anything to do the athletes all. Amy

Williams, her helmet in 2010 was a

0:39:020:39:08

question. It seems to be a recurring

thing and I would rather address

0:39:080:39:11

before we start racing.

Always

thinking outside the box, where can

0:39:110:39:16

we buy monster difference? Where can

we improve our equipment? But there

0:39:160:39:20

is a strict rule book and every

thing gets checked by a jury. --

0:39:200:39:25

where can we buy more difference?

The suits, is it a factory making

0:39:250:39:33

them quick?

I don't think so. They

could just have mentioned the suit

0:39:330:39:38

similar to British cycling, that

they made around the wheel. It is a

0:39:380:39:44

bit of smoke and mirrors.

How is the

suit, there has been a lot of chat

0:39:440:39:50

about the suit?

Well, as the British

team, of course we push the

0:39:500:39:55

boundaries, it's the Winter Olympic

Games. No one sleeps. Every nation

0:39:550:40:00

will be getting the best kit but

they can and we are exactly the

0:40:000:40:03

same.

Have you cleared that before

racing?

All equipment is cleared and

0:40:030:40:09

agreed and checked and everything.

The

0:40:090:40:13

agreed and checked and everything.

The IAB SF have cleared these suits.

0:40:130:40:17

But it is clearly causing a bit of a

star. The training times are so

0:40:170:40:20

good.

There is so much attention on

Team GB because we are at the

0:40:200:40:24

forefront of this book. When you are

at the forefront, you are getting

0:40:240:40:28

funding and putting it into

innovation. They have possibly

0:40:280:40:31

pushed the boundaries can put

whatever announces used to but they

0:40:310:40:35

would never ever do anything that

wasn't legal. I think this might be

0:40:350:40:39

the other girls getting wind of this

and trying to rattle our team,

0:40:390:40:43

trying to psychologically get into

their heads, to pinpoint something

0:40:430:40:46

that they haven't thought about. We

are obviously competitive, our lines

0:40:460:40:51

are good, the speed. The girls are

thinking... Dirty tactics possibly.

0:40:510:40:55

What do you think the others are

playing dirty tactics winding them

0:40:550:41:00

up about it?

Yes, I think

competitors of Team GB are thinking

0:41:000:41:05

they are so fast, there must be a

reason for it. We know they wouldn't

0:41:050:41:09

cheat, we know they wouldn't push

boundaries on this but let's go out

0:41:090:41:12

and say it to the media because then

everyone will talk to them. You saw

0:41:120:41:16

interviewing Lizzie, she looked a

little rattled. She wants to focus

0:41:160:41:20

on her event. She had a great

training run and yet everyone is

0:41:200:41:24

saying, are you sure your equipment

is OK?

Laura Deas flying down the

0:41:240:41:31

track. The most important thing in

this, it doesn't matter what suits

0:41:310:41:34

you are, if you get your corners or

lines from, you will suffer. Dom

0:41:340:41:37

Parsons starts tonight, early hours

of tomorrow morning, but effectively

0:41:370:41:41

late, late tonight. If you want to

tune in

0:41:410:41:43

late, late tonight. If you want to

tune in and see that, from 1am. His

0:41:430:41:48

second run will be tonight as well.

Then Friday for the third and fourth

0:41:480:41:51

runs that will decide the medals. It

is Friday morning our time, 11:20am

0:41:510:41:57

UK time that the women's start and

their final runs the medals will be

0:41:570:42:02

at 11:20am on Saturday.

0:42:020:42:06

You see, it is causing a sweeping

sensation!

0:42:230:42:25

Now for our second curling hit

of the night, and this time it's

0:42:250:42:29

the turn of the men -

two tantalisingly tough encounters

0:42:290:42:31

for the new-look British team.

0:42:310:42:32

Here's Paddy.

0:42:320:42:35

Where there is ice Stoner 's and

houses there are newer heads. Meet

0:42:390:42:44

Thomas Anne Glen, proficient in

delivering lands as well as stones.

0:42:440:42:48

Thomas is the third and Glenn the

ultimate on Kyle Smith's British

0:42:480:42:52

rink. Their first match against

Switzerland centred on the hammer,

0:42:520:43:00

the advantage of the last throw

first you lose that if you miss the

0:43:000:43:03

point, which Britain did at the last

end, accidentally.

Great Britain

0:43:030:43:08

taking one.

It was a mistake, they

didn't mean to do that.

Swiss hammer

0:43:080:43:13

time and they added a point of their

only more deliberate fashion.

Is

0:43:130:43:18

that enough? Switzerland take their

one.

Smith and Coe seemed rusty.

0:43:180:43:23

Strategy not matching stones. Again

stumbling to a point and losing the

0:43:230:43:27

hammer.

Oh, goodness me, what an

opportunity there for Great Britain!

0:43:270:43:34

And this is the danger of that.

Things opened up for the Swiss in

0:43:340:43:40

end six. They seized two important

points.

So, two for Switzerland and

0:43:400:43:45

that puts them in the lead after six

ends.

Now the Brits were up against

0:43:450:43:50

it. Switzerland still ahead by a

point in the ninth end, just the

0:43:500:43:55

moment for Smith to score his first

double.

Well done. Great Britain

0:43:550:44:00

pick-up two.

So GB one ahead, one

end to go. Would it be enough? Final

0:44:000:44:06

throw. The Swiss were on for a

match-winning two points and then...

0:44:060:44:11

Just got a nudge to push it out.

That nudge is enough to make sure

0:44:110:44:16

that Stone won't come into where he

wanted it to. It is one for

0:44:160:44:20

Switzerland, we have a tight match

after ten ends.

So an extra end but

0:44:200:44:25

Smith had that all-important hammer,

and with the pressure run, the

0:44:250:44:29

mistakes had gone.

It looks fine.

Well, the handshake comes in the

0:44:290:44:35

end. What a win for Great Britain.

Very pleased to get off to our first

0:44:350:44:40

Olympics with such a good

performance. We kind of struggled a

0:44:400:44:43

wee bit but we pulled it together.

Really pleased to get the win.

0:44:430:44:48

No time to enjoy that victory.

Lurking in the evening was curling's

0:44:480:44:53

most fearsome beast, Canada. A

country with so much strength in

0:44:530:44:56

this port their gold medallist from

Sochi didn't even make it through

0:44:560:45:00

the trials. They are clearly pretty

useful, as the first end proved.

So

0:45:000:45:07

Canada get exactly what they wanted,

two at the first end.

Next up vapour

0:45:070:45:12

pressure on Britain. In fact, had

Smith got this wrong, the Canadians

0:45:120:45:16

might have scored five.

That might

just be good enough for the one.

0:45:160:45:21

Well done Callum Smith. A little bit

of a pressure shot.

The hammer was

0:45:210:45:26

with Canada and slid an effortlessly

to a position of control.

Two, just

0:45:260:45:31

by the way that British stone.

How

often do you see, to give up a 4-1

0:45:310:45:35

lead.

Curling can be unpredictable,

even the Canadians get it wrong

0:45:350:45:39

sometimes. A tough test in end six.

0:45:390:45:45

Just the one, and there is a steal

for Great Britain. The Canadian skip

0:45:450:45:49

doesn't come up with the goods this

time.

An eight, every stone vital,

0:45:490:45:54

Britain couldn't find a big

breakthrough, but point by point,

0:45:540:45:58

Smith's rink were edging back into

this.

Well done. Great delight --...

0:45:580:46:08

GB left having to throw a hell Mary

with their last stone.

Are beginning

0:46:080:46:14

to lose this?

They need to be lying

short.

They are going to this one.

0:46:140:46:21

-- are they going to lose this?

Canada breach that it might be Great

0:46:210:46:29

Britain 6-4.

Is a dead -- it is a

team where you need to be at your

0:46:290:46:36

best and we struggled to do that.

What are your thoughts on the first

0:46:360:46:42

day?

It could have been worse.

One

win, one loss, Rhona. How would you

0:46:420:46:49

sum up their day?

It was a tough day

for the boys. Switzerland and

0:46:490:46:53

Canada, two of the top nations.

Yeah, one win out of two, great

0:46:530:46:57

start.

In the win against

Switzerland, they had to go to an

0:46:570:47:02

extra end and were thankful for a

Swiss Miss.

They had a shop for two,

0:47:020:47:09

and you can just see it feathering.

They are not even sweeping. Just

0:47:090:47:15

feathered that top guard or they

would have got their two and that

0:47:150:47:20

was game over. It went to an extra

end and Scotland had the hammer.

0:47:200:47:25

They managed to win, so the great

result.

They are, indeed, all

0:47:250:47:30

Scottish. It's the Olympics.

Sorry,

the British boys.

Ice temperatures,

0:47:300:47:39

we have an ideal temperature for

figure skating, as do hockey, so is

0:47:390:47:43

there one for curling?

There is, and

the ice men will watch it through

0:47:430:47:50

games. They have a thermometer, and

depending on the number in the

0:47:500:47:54

crowd...

Does it slide better if the

ice temperature is really cold?

Not

0:47:540:48:01

too cold, no. Just in the minuses.

Hockey players like it really hard.

0:48:010:48:10

Figure skaters like somewhere in

between, because if it is to staff,

0:48:100:48:14

you lose your edges in the landings,

and if it is too hard, you don't get

0:48:140:48:19

the bike.

I never thought we would

have a detailed conversation about

0:48:190:48:22

the temperature of ice! I love the

outfits. Did you see the Norwegian

0:48:220:48:30

men?

They obviously feel comfortable

in their skin.

Special Valentine's

0:48:300:48:35

Day trousers.

Pink trousers and a

red shirt - doesn't go!

0:48:350:48:44

Women's Ice hockey now,

and the decision to unify the teams

0:48:440:48:46

of North and South Korea typifies

the Olympic spirit, but they've been

0:48:460:48:49

at the wrong end of two

8-0 drubbings so far.

0:48:490:48:52

They've got the crowd behind them,

desperate to cheer something.

0:48:520:48:54

The question was not so much

could they win as could they score?

0:48:540:49:01

Korea, a nation divided.

I cannot

recall a situation when a situation

0:49:060:49:12

was as dangerous.

This is the most

militarised part of the whole

0:49:120:49:18

planet.

Rocket Man, he is a sick

puppy.

But now a divided nation

0:49:180:49:23

marching together under a unified

flag.

The Korean citizens have the

0:49:230:49:27

same history and we are one people,

one nation.

And it is in ice hockey,

0:49:270:49:36

unified will become truly united.

0:49:360:49:42

Korea yet to score a goal.

They have

done it! Korea have scored their

0:49:480:49:54

first ever goal in an Olympic ice

hockey tournament. This arena stands

0:49:540:50:01

at and they wave their flags. An

historic moment. Randy Griffin

0:50:010:50:08

scores Korea's first ever goal at an

Olympic ice hockey tournament.

0:50:080:50:12

Whether you are from the north or

the south, you will be on your feet

0:50:120:50:17

and cheering that goal.

A wonderful

moment for women's hockey.

I'm

0:50:170:50:23

really worried about all the teddy

bears on the ice - you will get them

0:50:230:50:27

tonight? Is fantastic that the

United Korean team did score and

0:50:270:50:32

they have one more game, the

play-off for a colour seven. We will

0:50:320:50:36

stay with the women's ice hockey

now.

0:50:360:50:42

One of the brightest young stars is

not from Canada or the USA. Three

0:50:430:50:49

became the youngest woman to score

in an Olympic ice hockey match. It

0:50:490:50:54

became the game and bronze medal

winning goal. Four years later, she

0:50:540:51:00

is winning more records. She

equalled the record for most points

0:51:000:51:06

in a game in women's ice hockey

match. She scored again against

0:51:060:51:11

Japan, and she opened the score with

a wicked shot today. It takes up to

0:51:110:51:16

six in the tournament and puts in

line to take the overall record. It

0:51:160:51:25

Switzerland are to break USA and

Canada's stranglehold on the top two

0:51:250:51:29

steps of the podium, Alina Muller

will be the player leading the way,

0:51:290:51:32

despite the fact she doesn't turn 20

until the middle of next month. If

0:51:320:51:35

you want to be the next Alina Muller

and get into eyes hockey, go to the

0:51:350:51:42

In the men's ice hockey,

red hot favourites OAR

0:51:510:51:53

were up against Slovakia.

0:51:530:51:54

With the Russians still smarting

over their Olympic ban,

0:51:540:51:56

victory in ice hockey -

very popular back home -

0:51:560:51:59

would be a potent symbol

of Russian pride restored,

0:51:590:51:59

Pyeongchang 20 18. What a chance

this is. Good first save. That was a

0:52:050:52:16

nice stop. It is so important. Not

this time! It has gone through

0:52:160:52:25

everybody. Conrad was screened as it

came back to the blue line. There

0:52:250:52:34

was enough traffic there. The

Olympic Athletes from Russia score

0:52:340:52:37

their first from this tournament.

Another goal! Taken out of the air.

0:52:370:52:42

Slovakia are shell-shocked. OAR are

on fire. In comes a chance, and a

0:52:420:52:53

great goal, great finish. All that

ski, just that quick shop. From

0:52:530:53:01

nothing, Slovakia cut the deficit in

two. A chance to break away. What

0:53:010:53:06

will he do? Wow! Stunning finish.

Short side, top shelf. 2-0 to 2-2.

0:53:060:53:21

Can they do something with this?

Back he goes to the blue line. The

0:53:210:53:25

shop will come, and they have taken

the lead. Slovakia come from 2- 02

0:53:250:53:30

now take the advantage is, an

absolute bomb of a shot. And we have

0:53:300:53:38

a shot in the opening game of the

men's ice hockey tournament here

0:53:380:53:41

a shot in the opening game of the

men's ice hockey tournament here in

0:53:410:53:42

Pyeongchang. And there was another

shock in the other game, because the

0:53:420:53:47

USA were beaten for the very first

time in international competition by

0:53:470:53:51

Slovenia, who celebrated like it was

Valentine's Day. He was padded with

0:53:510:53:54

what else has been going on.

Netherlands won the speed skating.

This time, it was an unexpected

0:54:000:54:06

shade of orange glory in the women's

1000 metres. Not Wust, but Jorien

0:54:060:54:17

Ter Mors, who set an Olympic record.

The Germans weren't winning in the

0:54:170:54:23

doubles luge, but the Austrians

were.

0:54:230:54:31

were.

Back-to-back gold medals!

In

loose, if the Germans don't win, the

0:54:360:54:39

Germans still win. Before these

games, Germany's Eric Frenzel was

0:54:390:54:43

having a bit of a wobble. On the

Olympic course, he found form to

0:54:430:54:50

defend his Nordic combined title.

The Jamaican bobsleigh team is

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

The Americans top the bill in day five's schedule in Pyeongchang with Shaun White and Mikaela Shiffrin attempting to claim yet more Games gold.

White bids for his third halfpipe gold medal having finished an agonising fourth in Sochi. Shiffrin meanwhile is looking to defend the slalom title she won in Sochi aged just 18.
