Previously... Sean White is the gold

medallist!

An incredible display of

0:00:140:00:19

half pipe snowboarding!

What a

skate!

They win again! Back-to-back

0:00:190:00:26

gold medals.

My goodness me, what a

start for Great Britain...

It is day

0:00:260:00:33

six...

0:00:330:00:41

The downhill run, about 1.5 miles in

length, the course involves a drop

0:01:050:01:11

of 2000 feet.

It could be a race in

history...

0:01:110:01:18

# Get up and get it, we'll do it

again!

The only way to win this is

0:01:180:01:24

to take a huge amount of risk...

0:01:240:01:30

to take a huge amount of risk...

The

all-American boy, Bill Johnson!

You

0:01:300:01:35

are watching the greatest ski race

in the world.

He is going to win the

0:01:350:01:40

gold!

# Get up, get it, we'll do it

0:01:400:01:51

again... #

0:01:510:01:54

From Jean-Claude Killy to

Franz Klammer, to Wild Bill Johnson

0:01:540:01:57

and Pirmin Zubriggen,

the Olympic men's downhill has given

0:01:570:01:59

us champions who have

stood the test of time.

0:01:590:02:01

Welcome to The Games Today.

0:02:010:02:04

Clear skies and no wind

in Pyeongchang meant

0:02:040:02:07

that the Winter Olympics blue riband

event could finally go ahead.

0:02:070:02:12

We'll be whistling down the mountain

with the best of them.

0:02:120:02:14

Here's what is else is coming up....

0:02:140:02:19

# You're as cold as ice... #

0:02:190:02:26

Thrice on the ice...

0:02:260:02:27

A busy day's curling.

0:02:270:02:28

We bring you all three GB matches.

0:02:280:02:30

We go to boarding school

with the French master.

0:02:300:02:32

Can Pierre Vaultier batter

the bumps, the bends and the other

0:02:320:02:35

boarders to retain his title?

0:02:350:02:36

It's a marriage of minds

in the pairs skating

0:02:360:02:38

as two become one...

0:02:380:02:39

He's rocketed in practice,

now it's the real thing...

0:02:390:02:43

Can Dom Parsons pass

the skeleton speed test?

0:02:430:02:46

And Mikaela Shiffrin wants

to be starting something

0:02:460:02:49

in the Giant Slalom -

we'll see if she can win the first

0:02:490:02:52

of a potential four gold medals...

0:02:520:02:57

What a panel we have tonight, a

woman who has gone downhill on skis,

0:02:570:03:02

I should say, at 92 miles an hour,

Chemmy Alcott. Christopher Dean, and

0:03:020:03:08

we welcome Welsh snowboarder Maisie

Potter. Sadly injured, so out of the

0:03:080:03:12

competition but we get the benefit

of her wisdom here. No jostling for

0:03:120:03:17

position, it is all about teamwork!

The men's downhill is finally here,

0:03:170:03:21

disrupted by high winds on Sunday,

the most fearless racers in the

0:03:210:03:27

world to hurtle down the course.

First, the intrepid Graham Bell...

0:03:270:03:32

Let's have

0:03:320:03:33

First, the intrepid Graham Bell...

Let's have a look at the men's

0:03:330:03:35

Olympic downhill, it's a beautiful

view from the top... But this is

0:03:350:03:40

what the racers have to focus on. It

starts pretty much straightaway. You

0:03:400:03:46

come around the right footed turn...

And you dive down onto this bumpy

0:03:460:03:53

bit. It is important to carry your

speed through the bumps here. You

0:03:530:04:01

have to let it fly there.

Approaching the first jump. Onto the

0:04:010:04:09

roller-coaster section. The steepest

part of the course here. There are

0:04:090:04:16

tunnels under the track. You have to

absorb the rollers. Onto the second

0:04:160:04:23

jump... It is the Dragon claw, and

straight up of there. Heading

0:04:230:04:28

towards the forest road. This turn

here is crucial. It is called the

0:04:280:04:38

Paradise Turn. Onto the flat... The

third jump. And heading towards the

0:04:380:04:52

Blue Dragon Valley. It is really

important to keep the speed going.

0:04:520:04:56

As you head into this almost half

pipe like section of the course.

0:04:560:05:02

Rolling from edge to edge. Making

speed through the last turn... And

0:05:020:05:07

heading towards the last jump.

Over... And big flight. Across the

0:05:070:05:15

line!

0:05:150:05:19

The men's Olympic downhill is, for

many countries, the biggest event at

0:05:200:05:25

these games. Our equivalent to the

100 metre final. In the distant

0:05:250:05:29

past, legends have dominated

downhill and won gold as

0:05:290:05:34

favourites...

The hero of Austria...

He has done it! Going wild!

Will be

0:05:340:05:47

the same today, will one of the hot

favourites win here? If recent

0:05:470:05:51

history tells us anything, we should

be a surprise...

He has won the blue

0:05:510:05:59

riband event.

It is fair to say the

last six winners were outside the

0:05:590:06:05

better of the title.

He has never

won, but the Olympic champion is

0:06:050:06:14

Matthias Mayer!

It could swing back

to the bookmaker's favourites...

0:06:140:06:18

This is a course with precision

required, the smallest of errors

0:06:180:06:22

will be punished as the fastest

battle for the gold...

The 2018

0:06:220:06:30

Olympic men's downhill.

Tommy Johnston is way for Germany...

0:06:300:06:37

The 24-year-old made his mark in

January, he hasn't put a foot wrong

0:06:370:06:43

just yet. The next jump, on the

right foot into the Paradise turn...

0:06:430:06:48

He just lost a little bit of ground

there. He didn't lose much speed,

0:06:480:06:52

going flat here... After the

Paradise

0:06:520:07:00

Paradise turn, heading towards the

Blue Dragon Valley. The most narrow

0:07:020:07:05

section of the course. Spectacular

racing here. Almost home, the first

0:07:050:07:12

man on because, taking off... He

flies over the jump and the time is

0:07:120:07:18

1:41.0 three.

0:07:180:07:25

In the start... And he is on his

way! The third best downhill racer

0:07:250:07:36

of the World Cup season. A difficult

landing, on the Paradise turn,

0:07:360:07:41

Dominik Paris could sort them out

today. Paris did not make the best

0:07:410:07:44

of it at all. Down towards the Blue

Dragon Valley...

0:07:440:07:55

Dragon Valley... Paris may have

taken a new line, others may not be

0:07:550:07:58

able to do that. He is still in

front, but this is the

0:07:580:08:08

front, but this is the final time

that really matters. Paris leads the

0:08:080:08:09

downhill! And, the Swiss skier, the

best of the season so far. Three

0:08:090:08:19

victories. Doing solidly in

training, and Feuz is living

0:08:190:08:29

dangerously, it's the Olympic

downhill. Bringing all of the risk

0:08:290:08:32

into this race. Ooh! Feuz is just

about hanging in. He needed a huge

0:08:320:08:41

amount of strength to pour himself

upright and over his skis. 120

0:08:410:08:49

kilometres per hour, that's the

latest reading on Feuz, as he flies

0:08:490:08:54

down towards the Blue Dragon Valley.

Paris's time there. Feuz is faster

0:08:540:09:01

by 0.21 seconds. A little lopsided

on his landing as he enters the Blue

0:09:010:09:07

Dragon Valley. Setting up for the

final quarter of the Olympic

0:09:070:09:10

downhill course. That was

magnificent downhill skiing from the

0:09:100:09:15

Swiss! He is going to go close

here... He may well go into gold

0:09:150:09:21

medal position. Feuz has put down a

magnificent Olympic downhill run. A

0:09:210:09:30

huge jump to finish... Feuz is

first! 0.3 six. Fantastic from Feuz!

0:09:300:09:43

He isn't afraid of taking air, and

as long as you are compact, it isn't

0:09:430:09:48

an issue, he goes further than

anyone on the jumps but still picks

0:09:480:09:51

up speed all the way down with a

good time.

0:09:510:09:59

good time.

It will certainly be his

final Olympic downhill, and he is

0:09:590:10:03

ready to race. Trailing by a tenth

of a second. He flattened it.

0:10:030:10:08

Workers going out to make the

repairs. He throws everything at it,

0:10:080:10:17

his last Olympic downhill

competition but he may be pushing

0:10:170:10:20

too hard. Winding down the windows

on that big jump... Aksel Lund

0:10:200:10:25

Svindal will have to take the

riskiest possible line. And cut off

0:10:250:10:30

the corners, as tightly as he dare.

If he is to get back into contention

0:10:300:10:35

here... And what a shot that is! In

full flight, the great man, landing

0:10:350:10:44

at 111 kilometres per hour. A

quarter of a second off the pace.

0:10:440:10:52

quarter of a second off the pace. It

may be paying off for Aksel Lund

0:10:520:10:54

Svindal. Into the Blue Dragon

Valley. Big flight, off-balance. He

0:10:540:11:00

has recovered his poise. He has his

dynamic posture, and Feuz is leading

0:11:000:11:09

by a quarter of a second. Svindal,

skiing for a gold medal position,

0:11:090:11:14

for Norway. It is a long flight...

He has gone and got into gold!

A

0:11:140:11:24

great run from Aksel Lund Svindal.

He made a mistake after the first

0:11:240:11:28

jump in the roller-coaster section.

His left footed turn, the only

0:11:280:11:32

mistake. Afterwards he must have

thought it's time to let rip down

0:11:320:11:35

the lower parser -- part of the

course. Then come he was absolutely

0:11:350:11:40

flying!

Now, from Norway, Kjetil

Jansrud. Number nine. Quicker than

0:11:400:11:50

his great rival and team-mate, Aksel

Lund Svindal. On the inside edge of

0:11:500:11:55

the right ski. Wonderful

anticipation and control from Kjetil

0:11:550:12:00

Jansrud, the 32-year-old Norwegian.

He is flying here! And huge again.

0:12:000:12:06

Not .4 three. He knows he has two

rolled the dice and take a real

0:12:060:12:11

chance with this. -- 0.4 three. They

are all watching keenly now, as

0:12:110:12:20

Kjetil Jansrud comes into the

Paradise turn. At full pelt...

0:12:200:12:24

Absolutely pushing. 112 on the

landing. Travelling 38 metres. Not

0:12:240:12:35

.37, in front of Aksel Lund Svindal.

He could deny him... One thing that

0:12:350:12:40

is missing in the downhill -- 0.3

seven. Twisting there but he landed

0:12:400:12:49

cleanly enough. Only just... Four

hundredths of a second between the

0:12:490:12:58

two Norwegians. Which way will this

go? Jansrud takes off... Jansrud is

0:12:580:13:07

in second place! Svindal holds on.

Jansrud was great at the top of the

0:13:070:13:13

course, came into the midway point

ahead of Svindal but then mistakes

0:13:130:13:17

began to creep in. Coming out of the

Blue Dragon Valley, twisting in the

0:13:170:13:23

air, that John probably lost him the

race.

It feels pretty good. -- that

0:13:230:13:29

jump. This feels different. It is

one of those things, you keep

0:13:290:13:34

looking up the hill because you want

to make sure that it is real. I'm

0:13:340:13:38

extremely

0:13:380:13:40

to make sure that it is real. I'm

extremely happy right now!

Earlier

0:13:400:13:41

this evening, he picked up his gold

medal, the oldest alpine skier ever

0:13:410:13:46

to win gold, downhill and probably

his final Olympics?

Yes, he has won

0:13:460:13:51

everything in the sport. The Olympic

gold medal is his. Incredibly,

0:13:510:13:55

Norway have never won an Olympic

gold medal. They have won 13 Olympic

0:13:550:14:01

medals but not that one.

One thing

that the downhill winners have in

0:14:010:14:05

common is they always looked utterly

out of control! You have to be on

0:14:050:14:09

the edge to get the fastest time?

Especially on a downhill as easy as

0:14:090:14:13

that, they were taking so many

risks. Maybe they are coming about

0:14:130:14:17

because they feel invincible. With

this new technology, they wear

0:14:170:14:22

airbags that thought in milliseconds

if they are about to fall. It is in

0:14:220:14:29

their back braces. If they fall at a

certain speed or impact, they go off

0:14:290:14:35

immediately.

Like motorcyclists?

Yes.

Let's have a look at Svindal

0:14:350:14:41

and how he won. He

0:14:410:14:43

Yes.

Let's have a look at Svindal

and how he won. He pushed at the

0:14:430:14:44

start for much further and longer

than anyone else.

Yes, he has such

0:14:440:14:48

long legs. You can see he has a

really long trajectory on the angle

0:14:480:14:52

of his skate. He goes with every

part of his body. It is important.

0:14:520:14:59

Strength in his gliding position.

You see how quickly he gets up to

0:14:590:15:02

speed. This is a side hill, gnarly,

and his airtime. We saw a lot of

0:15:020:15:08

sketchy airtime. They were pushing

it to the limit. You can see that he

0:15:080:15:14

is trying to force his arms down and

stay in that position. A lot of

0:15:140:15:19

people think that the air looks

fast. You don't want to actually

0:15:190:15:23

jump, the fastest place to be is on

the snow, that's where you make

0:15:230:15:27

speed. These races are trying to

squash and get back onto the snow as

0:15:270:15:33

quickly as possible. They take off,

Axel did a 43 metre jump on the

0:15:330:15:38

downhill, is that further

0:15:380:15:40

Axel did a 43 metre jump on the

downhill, is that further

0:15:400:15:40

Axel did a 43 metre jump on the

downhill, is that further than

0:15:400:15:41

Axel did a 43 metre jump on the

downhill, is that further than

0:15:410:15:41

Axel did a 43 metre jump on the

downhill, is that further than Eddie

0:15:410:15:41

the Eagle?

0:15:410:15:42

downhill, is that further than Eddie

the Eagle?

It isn't far off and the

0:15:420:15:43

other amazing thing about him is his

body. It has been rebuilt. He has

0:15:430:15:49

broken everything?

He has had face

reconstruction. He is a beast in the

0:15:490:15:56

gym? The Norwegians work so hard in

the gym and he has so much muscle

0:15:560:16:00

memory, despite the

0:16:000:16:06

memory, despite the fact he has been

injured, he is one of the strongest

0:16:060:16:08

guys there. They use change so they

can get East centric and concentric

0:16:080:16:10

loading. It's amazing!

Don't try it

at home. From the men's downhill,

0:16:100:16:15

let's change the place...

0:16:150:16:23

Enough facial expressions!

0:16:310:16:33

It's day two of competition

in the Gangneung Curling Centre.

0:16:330:16:36

After a tight win for the men

yesterday against world championship

0:16:360:16:38

bronze medallists Switzerland,

they were pipped by

0:16:380:16:40

the Olympic champions, Canada.

0:16:400:16:42

The women had a very easy

opening victory over OAR.

0:16:420:16:45

Here's Paddy Gearey.

0:16:450:16:50

In what is apparently Mr T's new

favourite sport, a mixed stay for

0:16:500:16:58

Great Britain's A teams. Mission

accomplished for the men, while Eve

0:16:580:17:06

Muirhead's crew pulled off a daring

raid. They love it when a plan comes

0:17:060:17:09

together. So to their second episode

against the USA, who went to live in

0:17:090:17:14

one up before the British women

responded. The final stone of end

0:17:140:17:19

four, repeat of judgment, watch

this.

So Eve Muirhead, two nice

0:17:190:17:24

stones at the end of the four then.

Nina Roth's American team was only

0:17:240:17:29

formed two years ago and has no

Olympic experience, but they

0:17:290:17:33

reasserted control.

It might just

hang on, it does, so USA pick-up

0:17:330:17:40

two.

They're only negative was that

they could never put and out of salt

0:17:400:17:45

British ring away. In end nine, this

gave the Americans A1 point lead.

0:17:450:17:55

gave the Americans A1 point lead. --

a one-point lead. Eve Muirhead took

0:17:550:17:58

on the trickiest option, but in this

board, if you are an inch away, you

0:17:580:18:01

might as well be a mile away.

USA

win, disappointing result.

Britain's

0:18:010:18:10

coach, Glenn Howard, called the

performance dodgy and average at

0:18:100:18:14

best, so you suspect they will have

been words before they re-emerged to

0:18:140:18:18

face China. And yet end four,

another mistake gave the Chinese a

0:18:180:18:22

chance.

Brilliant shot, that is

going to be three.

They had control

0:18:220:18:28

of the match, so GB had to outscore

them over the final ends. They took

0:18:280:18:33

two on seven, and again on nine.

Another good shot from Eve Muirhead,

0:18:330:18:38

takes the two.

Doubled but still

trouble, China would win with two of

0:18:380:18:44

their own from the tenth end. Eve

Muirhead restricted them to just

0:18:440:18:49

one.

It gets there, and we are tied

at 7-7, how are your nerves?

0:18:490:18:56

Shattered!

So to the extra end, Eve

to throw last for victory. In such

0:18:560:19:03

moments, she says, she becomes

robotic, focused on weight, speed,

0:19:030:19:09

power, science.

Eve Muirhead brings

Great Britain home, it has been a

0:19:090:19:14

tough match, and goodness me, we can

all breathe a huge sigh of relief!

A

0:19:140:19:19

gutsy performance, very proud, we

didn't want to finish the day with

0:19:190:19:26

two losses, so to get a win, 2-1, it

keeps as there among the leaders, a

0:19:260:19:31

good game for the supporters.

Kyle

Smith and company had to recover

0:19:310:19:37

from losing to Canada. No real shame

in that, pretty much everyone does.

0:19:370:19:42

A new dawn against the land of the

rising son, Japan was soon in

0:19:420:19:46

trouble. Britain had a chance of

three in end three.

Just squeezed

0:19:460:19:50

and a couple of inches too far, he

was inside and let it go.

Two would

0:19:500:19:55

do, but this would stay tight, and

in end seven the Japanese team found

0:19:550:20:00

a path back into this, four, then

5-5 into the final end. But knew

0:20:000:20:05

they had the last stone, so every

throw focused on clearing the ice

0:20:050:20:13

for Kyle Smith.

Should be good

enough for the win, and it is, well

0:20:130:20:16

done, boys!

A couple of times it

didn't look good, but we got the

0:20:160:20:21

bailout shot when we needed it, good

team performance.

0:20:210:20:26

A huge upset in the

women's curling today.

0:20:260:20:29

The crowd erupted as the team from

South Korea beat current

0:20:290:20:31

Olympic champions Canada 8-6.

0:20:310:20:35

It made headlines in Korea but was

even bigger news in Canada,

0:20:350:20:37

where curling success is sacrosanct.

0:20:370:20:42

Later in the day, Canada would

also lose a nailbiter to Sweden

0:20:420:20:44

in the 11th and extra end.

0:20:440:20:47

With their record at 0-2,

0:20:470:20:51

Canada sit at the bottom

of the women's table.

0:20:510:20:56

Just one match tomorrow

for the GB curlers.

0:20:560:20:59

The men are facing Sweden

from 11:05,

0:20:590:21:00

the women are taking

a well earned day off.

0:21:000:21:03

And they may take an opportunity to

watch this.

0:21:030:21:10

COMMENTATOR: Merciless format!

It is

good, though, isn't it?

This is far

0:21:110:21:16

from being over! It is going to be

difficult to catch them with so much

0:21:160:21:25

board speed. This is getting very,

very tight!

The Italian has gone

0:21:250:21:30

down!

Wow!

0:21:300:21:34

We all thought short-track

speed skating was rough

0:21:340:21:37

and random, but this

is something else.

0:21:370:21:38

Maisie, how would you sum

up snowboard cross?

0:21:380:21:42

Well, like the short track, it is

head to head racing, unpredictable,

0:21:420:21:47

exciting, but there is some

consistency. We have had four events

0:21:470:21:51

at the Olympics, and only two

champions, Seth Westcott twice from

0:21:510:21:54

the USA and Pierre Vaultier from

France twice.

Talk us through the

0:21:540:22:00

course and what they have to deal

with.

0:22:000:22:02

We have a three metres drop start,

which is one of the most impressive

0:22:060:22:09

things, we don't have it often on

TV. Some big features, all the way

0:22:090:22:14

through, you know, you have to

commit, you have to have full

0:22:140:22:18

commitment to land in the right

place, because they are big jumps.

0:22:180:22:22

It is going to be wild stuff. Not

only have you got to deal with the

0:22:220:22:26

course, but also be aware of all the

other borders around you. Ed Leigh

0:22:260:22:30

has the best of the men's

competition.

0:22:300:22:37

competition. This is the event the

Winter Olympics does best, racers

0:22:370:22:41

throw themselves down the course at

up to 50 mph, navigating jumps,

0:22:410:22:44

bumps and banked corners, defying

gravity and wipe-outs to hopefully

0:22:440:22:49

crossed the finish line. Six riders

start, but how many will make it to

0:22:490:22:55

the end? We join the race in the

first semifinal, with offending

0:22:550:23:00

Olympian champion Pierre Vaultier is

aiming to be one of three who

0:23:000:23:03

qualifies for the final. --

defending. Put your brew down, turn

0:23:030:23:07

the volume up and enjoy the ride.

12 men left, only six spot in the

0:23:070:23:16

final available. Pierre Vaultier,

five-time overall World Cup winner,

0:23:160:23:20

reigning world champion. Nikolay

Olyunin, the Russian has looked

0:23:200:23:26

invincible so far. Two Australians,

Cameron Bolton, Alex Pullin. The

0:23:260:23:30

Austrian Alessandro Hammerle and

then Jarryd Hughes were closest to

0:23:300:23:36

us. Vaultier was like lightning out

of the gates as they freefall into

0:23:360:23:40

the first feature, the birdbath.

So

Vaultier out in the lead, and look

0:23:400:23:45

how he is extending it.

So is

Alessandro Hammerle in the white

0:23:450:23:50

bib, then it is Jarryd Hughes in a

third. But it is about start moving,

0:23:500:23:55

making a move from the outside,

Vaultier looking very comfortable,

0:23:550:24:02

Hughes moves into his slipstream.

The two Australians coming together.

0:24:020:24:08

We have got Pullin and Boldon,

Jarryd Hughes in second position.

0:24:080:24:12

Keep an eye on Alessandro Hammerle,

good outside line.

I think Bolton

0:24:120:24:19

has gone!

Pullin looking to go long.

And what a fantastic race, Jarryd

0:24:190:24:25

Hughes leads, Pierre Vaultier tries

to... Oh, Vaultier is down! And

0:24:250:24:31

Alessandro Hammerle.

The two

Australians.

Alex Pullin and Jarryd

0:24:310:24:37

Hughes are going to make it through,

it is a yard sale for third place,

0:24:370:24:42

everyone else went down.

I think the

Olympic champion went down of his

0:24:420:24:46

own accord, I don't think there was

any coming together. But I can't see

0:24:460:24:51

from here, I think it is Vaultier

who is up.

Yes, the Olympic champion

0:24:510:24:57

places get out of jail free card. It

is Hammerle on the outside, over

0:24:570:25:06

jumped by Olyunin. Vaultier, 20

seconds behind, but it is not

0:25:060:25:11

against the clock, just the first

three over.

Now, game time, the

0:25:110:25:14

adrenaline starts to kick in.

Hernandez in red, Martin Norl in

0:25:140:25:22

green...

0:25:220:25:31

Lindfors drops out of the sky

closest to us, but in front it is

0:25:320:25:38

Hernandez in the red beard.

He has

gone, Robanske in the blue.

0:25:380:25:45

Baumgartner! So the two North

Americans chasing down the Spaniard,

0:25:450:25:51

but look how wide Robanske has gone,

trying to get a good highlight,

0:25:510:25:57

great move from Baumgartner

underneath Hernandez. As they go

0:25:570:26:01

down that enormous step down and

into the big sweeping right-hander.

0:26:010:26:05

The world champion from Sierra

Nevada, Baumgartner, now leading

0:26:050:26:10

from the front, Hernandez slipping

back, the Bluebeard of Robanske, we

0:26:100:26:15

have lost someone!

Right at the

back. I think it was Lindfors. Oh,

0:26:150:26:23

no, the blue... Oh, Lindfors!

Eclipse... That was

0:26:230:26:33

Eclipse... That was phenomenal, like

dominoes, taking each other out. No

0:26:340:26:37

sign of anyone behind Fernandez,

more drama for second and third.

0:26:370:26:43

What on earth happened there?! Let's

take a look.

That was Dierdorff that

0:26:430:26:51

went down, Robanske lands flat.

He

takes out Norl. It was Baumgartner's

0:26:510:26:58

mistake at the top, this is

Baumgartner coming down.

Baumgartner

0:26:580:27:03

for second place. I can see third

place, here we go.

It is Dierdorff.

0:27:030:27:12

Dierdorff, who played no part in

that, after he crashed out at the

0:27:120:27:16

top, 30 seconds between first and

third. But as we have said so many

0:27:160:27:19

times before, it doesn't matter,

third place is third place.

0:27:190:27:28

Six men, three medals, who will take

it.

Jarryd Hughes in the white.

0:27:280:27:34

Hernandez has been breathtaking out

of the gate.

The Olympic champion in

0:27:340:27:39

the red, Pierre Vaultier. I am

looking forward to this. This will

0:27:390:27:43

have plenty of action, like a

half-price clothing sale at Primark!

0:27:430:27:50

Really long weight, but Jarryd

Hughes is a way in the closest lane

0:27:500:27:57

to us.

So Hernandez, again, getting

out very well, Pullin getting out

0:27:570:28:03

very well.

The Australians either

side of the Spaniard, Pierre

0:28:030:28:07

Vaultier bolts into the lead,

daylight between him and Jarryd

0:28:070:28:11

Hughes.

Look at Baumgartner on the

outside, making up some room, making

0:28:110:28:17

up some places.

Vaultier looks so

fast at this stage, though, Jarryd

0:28:170:28:21

Hughes tagging in behind, trying to

get some drag, slipstream the

0:28:210:28:25

Frenchman.

Pullin has gone from

third, finds itself in fourth.

0:28:250:28:31

Hernandez goes massive!

Three men

down, who is taking which colour

0:28:310:28:35

medal? Hernandez dives inside Jarryd

Hughes, Pierre Vaultier is out in

0:28:350:28:41

front. Jarryd Hughes goes high,

Hernandez looking low underneath

0:28:410:28:44

them as they come onto the home

straight, through the whale tail,

0:28:440:28:48

dropping down. No way that Jarryd

Hughes can really in Vaultier, but

0:28:480:28:53

can he defend the silver medal

position?

This will go to a photo

0:28:530:28:57

finish, they hit the jump at the

same time at the bottom.

It is a

0:28:570:29:05

flyby formation flying, Pierre

Vaultier makes it two gold medals in

0:29:050:29:10

a row, back-to-back, Sochi and

Korea. He was breathtaking! No-one

0:29:100:29:14

could hold a candle to the

Frenchman. What a great race,

0:29:140:29:19

Vaultier led from the start, that

was the big slopestyle ticket, so

0:29:190:29:23

much on that jump, we have seen a

lot of people come down there, and

0:29:230:29:27

it is a great race down the

finishing straight between Hernandez

0:29:270:29:31

and Hughes.

What a race, smiles all

round, your double Olympic champion,

0:29:310:29:37

Pierre Vaultier.

0:29:370:29:42

Great television sport, did you

enjoy that, Kristian gob amazing,

0:29:420:29:45

some celerity is with short track,

when someone impedes another, can

0:29:450:29:53

they be penalised?

Yes, you usually

get one protest be race, and the

0:29:530:29:58

judges decide.

Pierre Vaultier,

where is he getting his speed from,

0:29:580:30:02

getting out in front and staying

there?

0:30:020:30:08

You can see how the start is so

crucial, getting into position for

0:30:080:30:14

the first feature, called the

Wu-Tang.

Are there people that you

0:30:140:30:17

don't want to get behind? I don't

want to be here!

0:30:170:30:27

Like being stuck in traffic, it

isn't the ideal place but if you

0:30:270:30:30

focus on what you are doing, that is

where the skill comes out.

Is the

0:30:300:30:36

centre the best place to start on

the grid?

Most of the top-seeded

0:30:360:30:41

guys choose the middle. But I don't

think it mattered much in this one.

0:30:410:30:46

Is a different battle, out on the

front in the beginning, you are

0:30:460:30:49

writing your own race, working the

terrain but at the back, it is

0:30:490:30:54

combative, it is aggressive. Is his

skill always that he is not

0:30:540:31:01

challenged?

I guess that is his aim.

This course is over one minute long.

0:31:010:31:05

You have to absorb all of those

jumps really well, it

0:31:050:31:08

You have to absorb all of those

jumps really well, it isn't just the

0:31:080:31:09

start.

If you enjoyed that, there

will be more snowboard Cross

0:31:090:31:12

tomorrow. Maisie would have competed

in the women's event, Lindsey

0:31:120:31:18

Jacobellis is still going at the age

of 32. On the hunt for gold. Figure

0:31:180:31:23

skating now...

0:31:230:31:28

And it's the second day

0:31:290:31:31

of the pairs competition

and the free programme.

0:31:310:31:34

Chris here has choreographed

the German routine.

0:31:340:31:38

Under the I of

0:31:380:31:39

Under the I of the double Olympic

champion, Germany would try and win

0:31:390:31:42

for the first time since her victory

in 1988, competing at her fifth

0:31:420:31:51

Olympics, Savchenko and Massott were

in the short programme after they

0:31:510:31:54

both made a mistake. They had to be

flawless if they were to take a

0:31:540:31:58

medal of any colour.

Lovely! The

first of the throes... She has got

0:31:580:32:09

it on one foot. Clean!

0:32:090:32:16

it on one foot. Clean! She has a

tend to land on two feed but not

0:32:160:32:18

even close today. A double toe

loop...... It is glorious. The

0:32:180:32:28

detail in the choreography.

0:32:280:32:39

Perfect!

Not only that but it was a

new world record score of 159.31,

0:32:410:32:47

putting them right back in

contention. It was the performance

0:32:470:32:51

of their lives, just when it

mattered the most. Now, it's a case

0:32:510:32:54

of waiting and watching the rest...

The team gold medallists from

0:32:540:33:04

Canada, Duhamel and Radford,

couldn't afford any mistakes if they

0:33:040:33:06

were to stay in the top three...

The

hardest side by side jump element...

0:33:060:33:15

Hands down... I'm not sure that was

fully rotated... That will be in the

0:33:150:33:21

review... A quadruple Salchow, and

she has got it. Nine points from

0:33:210:33:34

that one element. Meagan fights for

every move. She will be one of those

0:33:340:33:41

to fix any move that is slightly

off.

Fighting for a medal... I'm

0:33:410:33:47

fighting to hold onto a podium spot.

It is all about synchronicity

0:33:470:33:52

teamwork. On the ice, the world

champions from China Sui and Han

0:33:520:34:03

were leaders after the short

programme but they couldn't afford

0:34:030:34:05

any errors...

Opening with a

quadruple twist, four revolutions in

0:34:050:34:10

the air from the take-off...

0:34:100:34:16

the air from the take-off... Side by

side, triple toe loops... The

0:34:210:34:27

triples were fine... Just singles

from him... It triple, and then you

0:34:270:34:35

want a double with a single in

between... That was a problem in the

0:34:350:34:40

warm up as well, the triple Salchow.

It is rousing stuff! But is it

0:34:400:34:46

enough to hold onto their lead?

Uncharacteristic warbles meant a

0:34:460:34:52

combined score of 235.47, less than

half a point shy of the resilient

0:34:520:34:58

Germans, and it left the door open

for the Olympic Athletes from

0:34:580:35:03

Russia, but Tarasova and Morosov

would need to break the world record

0:35:030:35:08

again to take the gold...

That was

lovely!

0:35:080:35:18

lovely! Side by side triples. The

first triple Salchow. She did... She

0:35:180:35:26

didn't.

0:35:260:35:31

didn't. A throw, a triple Salchow

now... And that has gone as well.

0:35:320:35:43

143.25, no medal for the Olympic

Athletes from Russia.

0:35:430:35:52

Athletes from Russia. That means the

Olympic champions are Savchenko and

0:35:520:35:55

Massott.

Christopher Dean was almost

as emotional as them. Watching it

0:35:550:36:01

earlier, you

0:36:010:36:02

as emotional as them. Watching it

earlier, you nearly welled up?

0:36:020:36:03

Working with them was a wonderful

experience. The passion Savchenko

0:36:030:36:11

has, she has won everything else but

an Olympic medal. This could be her

0:36:110:36:15

last Olympics but talking to her she

is so passionate, she may want to

0:36:150:36:19

carry on!

You thought a gold was out

of the question?

They were in fourth

0:36:190:36:27

place and if the other teams were on

their game they could have been out

0:36:270:36:30

of reach. But having said that, she

and Bruno were on their game.

A nod

0:36:300:36:37

to the Bolero with the outfits and

some of the movements in the routine

0:36:370:36:42

but they have never performed better

than this?

Fitted the performance of

0:36:420:36:47

their lives, they went out ahead of

everyone else. They knew that they

0:36:470:36:51

needed to do everything in their

power to put pressure on the others.

0:36:510:36:55

They went for broke, no holding

back. I think what with the other

0:36:550:37:00

teams, there was the nervousness of

wanting to skate clean and safe.

And

0:37:000:37:05

we saw it, the Canadians were good,

they landed the quadruple throw, but

0:37:050:37:09

they did have some little mistakes.

That was it, there.

0:37:090:37:15

they did have some little mistakes.

That was it, there. It was amazing.

0:37:150:37:20

Just so athletic.

0:37:200:37:21

That was it, there. It was amazing.

Just so athletic. That was the

0:37:210:37:25

performance of a lifetime for them.

That is why she was so emotional.

0:37:250:37:31

And on the podium? Great.

Others

fell away completely but many

0:37:310:37:35

congratulations for the part you

played.

A little part, but thank

0:37:350:37:39

you.

It still is! Here is what is

coming up...

0:37:390:37:43

Stand by for the skeleton.

0:37:430:37:48

Dom Parsons slides

into the Olympics.

0:37:480:37:49

While Mikaela Shiffrin

slaloms into it.

0:37:490:37:51

The American superstar

starts her gold medal

0:37:510:37:52

hunt.

0:37:520:37:53

She's focused on four.

0:37:530:38:01

Another great day... Ooh!

FUNKY

MUSIC

0:38:020:38:13

CHEERING

0:38:130:38:22

How was that, Chris?

Great! Alex Coomber for Great

0:38:230:38:30

Britain...

This is a high octane

sport...

Great Britain on the verge

0:38:300:38:38

of a medal... She is a supreme

competitor... Come on, Alex, keep it

0:38:380:38:48

going cleanly!

0:38:480:38:57

Alex Coomber has got another big

medal!

0:38:570:39:00

And here she is, gracefully sliding

into position, the woman who started

0:39:040:39:07

the skeleton success in this

country. Good evening and welcome

0:39:070:39:11

colour Alex Kimber. Fantastic

memories from Salt Lake City 2002 --

0:39:110:39:18

welcome to Alex Coomber.

I feel so

proud, hopefully there is a legacy

0:39:180:39:24

that is going to continue. We have

done so well, the number of people

0:39:240:39:28

who even know what skeleton is now

and would like to try it. You know,

0:39:280:39:32

it makes me feel very proud.

We've

only had female medallists so far

0:39:320:39:36

but in the men's, Dom Parsons has

made all of the headlines in his

0:39:360:39:41

training runs with some blistering

times. Could this translate into

0:39:410:39:45

competition? Here is the Vancouver

Olympic champion, Amy Williams...

0:39:450:39:48

CHEERING

0:39:570:40:06

It is the first day of racing from

the men's skeleton.

0:40:150:40:18

Dom Parsons has put down some

incredible runs in training but none

0:40:180:40:22

of it matters now. He's got to do it

today when it counts against a field

0:40:220:40:26

of incredible competitors... Run

once or two athletes making a bit of

0:40:260:40:32

history. Jamaican Anthony Watson and

the an athlete became the first from

0:40:320:40:38

those countries to slide at the

Olympics... They will not be

0:40:380:40:43

challenging for the medals but at

the other end of the leaderboard it

0:40:430:40:47

was the local South Korean favourite

setting the pace early...

Clean and

0:40:470:40:52

fast, over one second quicker than

anyone else so far.

0:40:520:40:59

anyone else so far.

Big things were

expected of the reigning world

0:41:000:41:03

champion, but the Latvian has

struggled on this track and finished

0:41:030:41:05

over half a second back...

Dom

Parsons goes next for Great

0:41:050:41:10

Britain... Deep breaths!

This was

the part of the track where you have

0:41:100:41:18

two hold it together and not make

mistakes. A clip there. That will

0:41:180:41:22

probably cost him...

May be nearer

five or six, Dom Parsons is better

0:41:220:41:28

than that! Into fourth place.

Jerry

Rice followed Dom Parsons, finishing

0:41:280:41:34

into 11th, but with just over three

tenths separating second to eighth,

0:41:340:41:39

there was plenty to play for heading

into Ron two. Jerry Rice slid into

0:41:390:41:45

first, but the 27-year-old 's time

would soon be beaten as the second

0:41:450:41:49

run began to heat up...

And here is

-- and here he is, Tomass Dukurs has

0:41:490:42:00

thrown down a statement run. Dom

Parsons need something similar...

He

0:42:000:42:06

needs to forget about the Latvian

behind him. Come on, this is what

0:42:060:42:11

you need!

He is catching Tomass

Dukurs now. Looking smooth to the

0:42:110:42:15

finish here...

Dom Parsons goes to

the front! Come on!

What a finish,

0:42:150:42:22

that puts pressure on those above

him. The medal chase for Britain is

0:42:220:42:26

on here.

It's a good thing to see

that he is enjoying his sliding.

0:42:260:42:31

Then you are fast. Everything feels

good!

In equal fifth place, the

0:42:310:42:42

legendary Martins Dukurs, he will

have to try and chase Dom Parsons!

0:42:420:42:46

He looks like he's losing a lot of

time at the top. Is there enough

0:42:460:42:51

track left for Dom Parsons to rein

in the legendary Latvian slider as

0:42:510:42:55

he makes his way down?

Around the

16th and final curve, for Dukurs.

0:42:550:43:05

Can you believe that Dom Parsons is

three hundredths of a second of the

0:43:050:43:11

magnificent Martins Dukurs? Make no

mistake, Parsons is in the mix here.

0:43:110:43:19

Here is the number five in the

world, Nikita Tregubov. He needs to

0:43:190:43:24

keep up with Parsons and Dukurs, and

perhaps close on our leader here?

0:43:240:43:30

WWE he has solid lines, no major

mistakes. We could see him with a

0:43:300:43:37

fast time...

A contender, for sure.

Nearly two tenths ahead of Parsons.

0:43:370:43:48

Run two comes to a conclusion with

the Korean Yun Sungbin after this

0:43:480:43:57

fellow, if he can put that in again,

we could have put the gold medal

0:43:570:44:02

around his neck.

It's what he's come

to do. A new start record and it

0:44:020:44:07

wouldn't surprise me with a new

track record. He will open the taps

0:44:070:44:11

on this one and put on the

afterburners. You can see him

0:44:110:44:14

lifting his shoulders, it is working

for him.

The magnificent Yun, no

0:44:140:44:22

mistakes. Steering with his right

foot. Magnificent!

A track record, a

0:44:220:44:29

new track record. You can hear the

crowd, absolutely spectacular run.

0:44:290:44:38

Yes, Yun is obviously in a league of

his own. But it is really close

0:44:400:44:44

behind.

Ten years of your career,

and now you are three 100 Kosovo

0:44:440:44:49

second away from me middle position

-- three hundredths of a second

0:44:490:44:56

away.

Yes, I have to make the most

of this moment.

0:44:560:45:01

away.

Yes, I have to make the most

of this moment.

STUDIO: It is

0:45:010:45:03

quarter to five in the morning in

South Korea, I'm sure he has woken

0:45:030:45:06

up early thinking about what he can

do to make up that time to get into

0:45:060:45:10

a middle position.

First thing is to not panic. At this

0:45:100:45:13

stage in the game, you don't want to

do any massive changes to anything

0:45:130:45:17

and think, maybe I will drive the

bend differently? But where he could

0:45:170:45:21

make an advantage is that the

beginning, he

0:45:210:45:27

make an advantage is that the

beginning, he

0:45:270:45:33

is a former 400 metre runner, if he

can go a bit faster at the start,

0:45:380:45:41

his turnover is quite slow, he needs

to get going with a bit more of a

0:45:410:45:45

push and that could set him up for a

better downtime.

And what do you

0:45:450:45:48

make of him down the course, does it

suit him, is he driving well?

He

0:45:480:45:51

drives phenomenally well. He was

20th and 21st as a starter.

0:45:510:45:53

Finishing in the top three. On the

second run. He drives well, he is

0:45:530:45:56

clean and relaxed on the sledge. He

isn't moving around a lot. Shoulders

0:45:560:45:58

nice and low, he tries to flow with

the track rather than fight. On this

0:45:580:46:03

technical track, the worst thing you

can do is try and fight it.

0:46:030:46:11

So stay relaxed, enjoy it, it could

happen, Dom Parsons could be

0:46:110:46:16

Britain's first medallist of these

Winter Olympic Games, and he will be

0:46:160:46:19

sliding for glory tonight, from

midnight 30.

0:46:190:46:25

Lizzy and Laura are going

in the first two runs of the women's

0:46:260:46:29

competition as well tomorrow.

0:46:290:46:30

They start at around

11:20 in the morning.

0:46:300:46:32

Back to the Alpine skiing now,

and it's the womens giant slalom,

0:46:320:46:35

this is the race where American

star Mikaela Shiffrin

0:46:350:46:37

was starting her quest

for mulitple medals.

0:46:370:46:39

She's multi-talented.

0:46:390:46:45

# She sees I'm walking in a straight

line... #

0:47:010:47:11

Her third successive world title!

0:47:180:47:24

She is the Olympic champion at 18!

0:47:240:47:36

# I wish that I could be like the

cool kids... #

0:47:360:47:42

After three days of high winds, the

technical skiers were welcomed by

0:47:420:47:46

clear skies and cold temperatures.

0:47:460:47:50

The first race was Manuela Moelgg,

laying down an impressive time

0:47:500:47:56

through the gates set by the Italian

coach. Also bracing for Italy,

0:47:560:48:00

Federica Brignone, handling the

technical terms to fly into second

0:48:000:48:05

place. After all the hype, Mikaela

Shiffrin set off on a quest for

0:48:050:48:10

multiple golds, and only a small

error prevented from snatching top

0:48:100:48:14

spot after the first run.

0:48:140:48:20

spot after the first run. Alex

Tilley through everything at the

0:48:200:48:23

mountain but lost her battle. In the

second run, they race in reverse

0:48:230:48:28

order to see who will be crowned

Olympic champion. Rebensburg was the

0:48:280:48:33

Olympic champion eight years ago.

But make no mistake, Rebensburg is

0:48:330:48:40

currently at the very top of her

game in giant slalom, and she is a

0:48:400:48:45

serious contender for victory today.

Rebensburg is keeping it green all

0:48:450:48:51

the way, oh, it is smooth, it is

aggressive from Vicky Redwood spoke.

0:48:510:48:55

The knees absorbing all the changes

into rain, she tucks into go first.

0:48:550:49:03

She was so smooth down the steep,

able to carry speed all the way down

0:49:030:49:07

to the finish, brilliant skill, she

takes the lead.

0:49:070:49:18

takes the lead.

Mowinckel as an

advantage over Rebensburg after the

0:49:180:49:20

first run. Straight into the tag,

aggressive, accurate, she has added

0:49:200:49:26

0.3 to her lead, sensational start

for Mowinckel. She has got them

0:49:260:49:34

sideways, a little stumble over the

roller. How has it's damaged her

0:49:340:49:38

time? She is now in the red zone.

Mowinckel

0:49:380:49:50

tucks in, gold medal position.

A

couple of turns where she was

0:49:570:50:00

hanging on, but she fought all the

way from start to finish.

Three to

0:50:000:50:05

go in the Olympic giant slalom, next

up, Federica Brignone. Now,

0:50:050:50:10

Mowinckel's secret was nailing the

top ten turns, that is where she was

0:50:100:50:16

better than anybody else. Brignone

was just slightly more cautious,

0:50:160:50:23

Federica Brignone is having to work

hard through some of these terms. A

0:50:230:50:27

little late again, Mowinckel's next

split is 2.04 .0 two. So tight in

0:50:270:50:36

this Olympic giant slalom second

run, Brignone could still ski into a

0:50:360:50:41

medal position, what colour will it

be? Brignone almost home for Italy,

0:50:410:50:46

she tucks in, she goes into silver

with just two skiers to come.

A

0:50:460:50:55

scream of disappointment from

Federica Brignone in the finish. On

0:50:550:50:57

the course, she set up nicely down

the steep but did not have the same

0:50:570:51:02

attack and fight as Mowinckel before

her.

Now it is the turn of Mikaela

0:51:020:51:09

Shiffrin. 0.35 is a advantage over

Mowinckel. It is a smooth,

0:51:090:51:20

error-free macro start for Mikaela

Shiffrin, as she comes onto the

0:51:200:51:23

first steep section.

0:51:230:51:30

first steep section. 1:46.19 for

Mowinckel, but Shiffrin is getting

0:51:300:51:33

after this giant slalom second run.

She was the slalom champion four

0:51:330:51:36

years ago at the age of 18. Now at

22, she is looking for her second

0:51:360:51:41

Olympic title. She could win

possibly four golds in Pyeongchang

0:51:410:51:46

in 2018, and she is on her way to

the gold medal position surely now,

0:51:460:51:52

if she stays on her feet. It has

been lightning quick from Mikaela

0:51:520:51:56

Shiffrin from top to bottom, one

mistake, buggy has got enough in

0:51:560:52:00

reserve, she has got the gold medal

position with one to come! Shiffrin

0:52:000:52:06

risked everything there on the last

six turns and nearly came unstuck.

0:52:060:52:12

Billion skiing on the tough Middle

Park, able to pull out a big

0:52:120:52:17

advantage, but lost it's just a few

gates from home. That brilliant

0:52:170:52:22

skiing on the tough middle part.

The

last skier on the hill, the veteran

0:52:220:52:29

Italian, 34 years old, never won a

World Cup race. She has made a

0:52:290:52:37

mistake in the early stages, she

trails Shiffrin by 0.21. It was not

0:52:370:52:42

the smoothest start. 0.63 now, oh,

she is potentially out of the

0:52:420:52:49

medals. And there is no way back

now, Shiffrin will be the Olympic

0:52:490:52:55

champion. Mowinckel will take the

single, Brignone the bronze, and I

0:52:550:53:00

think that Manuela Moelgg will leave

the giant slalom empty-handed. Can

0:53:000:53:06

she fight back in amongst the

medals? Oh, only eight! Mikaela

0:53:060:53:11

Shiffrin is the Olympic champion!

She begins her quest for a handful

0:53:110:53:17

of Olympic medals with the victory

in the giant slalom.

Does this put

0:53:170:53:24

more pressure on you for tomorrow or

less?

It is nice to have a gold

0:53:240:53:28

medal, it is sort of like, OK, I got

a gold medal, that is great, but I

0:53:280:53:33

want to go out and enjoy the race

tomorrow, you know, not Villeneuve

0:53:330:53:38

us, but feel inspired and really put

out my best skiing. -- not feel

0:53:380:53:43

nervous.

0:53:430:53:48

She says she has a low-hate

relationship with giant slalom, she

0:53:480:53:53

was so emotional.

Really unusual for

her, she normally keeps cards close

0:53:530:53:59

to her chest, but you can see she

was so emotional, style, speed and

0:53:590:54:03

grace, and she is a force to be

reckoned with, because confidence

0:54:030:54:07

builds confidence in skiing, and who

knows what can happen?

This is the

0:54:070:54:12

schedule she has got ahead of her,

because it is compacted, slalom

0:54:120:54:17

straightaway tomorrow, then talk

that she will not do the super-G

0:54:170:54:21

because she will do downhill

instead.

Three different

0:54:210:54:25

disciplines, three different ski

lengths, different techniques, we

0:54:250:54:28

know she can do it, but the fact is

a third gold, which she believes she

0:54:280:54:34

can win 100% is the Alpine combined,

so downhill is really important. If

0:54:340:54:40

she does not stay the super-G, she

gets a day off.

Alex Tilley of Great

0:54:400:54:45

Britain?

In her words, she made a

rookie mistake, really tough, but

0:54:450:54:49

she has still got slalom.

Paddy with

the best of the rest from

0:54:490:54:53

Pyeongchang. Meet Ted-Jan Bloemen,

the first non-Dutchman to win a

0:54:530:55:02

speed skating gold at these Games.

Granted, he only switched from the

0:55:020:55:05

Netherlands to Canada three years

ago, but still! Even stranger, Sven

0:55:050:55:11

Kramer finished sixth. Speaking of

surprises, this Frenchman, thought

0:55:110:55:15

to be the best male biathlete in the

world, miss two crucial shots to

0:55:150:55:19

hand the individual 20 calamity to

his younger rival, the Norwegian,

0:55:190:55:25

Johannes Thignes Bo. A perfect 20

gave gold to Sweden's Hanna Oberg.

0:55:250:55:31

The Norwegian's march of victory in

the ten kilometre freestyle was 20

0:55:310:55:37

seconds, Marit Bjoergen took bronze

and could be the all-time Winter

0:55:370:55:42

Olympic medal tally by the end of

the games. And now to the frantic

0:55:420:55:46

world of the luge relay, men's,

women's, doubles, it has got

0:55:460:55:50

everything. If you know your luge,

he will know your winners -

0:55:500:55:55

generally's third gold in the sport

at the Games. So it is still Germany

0:55:550:56:00

sitting atop the medal table, luge

and figure skating gold is adding to

0:56:000:56:04

their tally. The big move is no way,

fantastic day for them, Aksel Lund

0:56:040:56:11

Svindal in the downhill, and golden

cross country and biathlon as well.

0:56:110:56:14

Let's go off piste.

0:56:140:56:21

Meagan Duhamal was so happy to win

a bronze that she found

0:56:210:56:24

the power of levitation.

0:56:240:56:27

We have been talking a lot about get

inspired, and this must be where my

0:56:270:56:31

trolley has got to.

0:56:310:56:37

Supermarket sweep! Good use of

colander is, that is Harry. And a

0:56:370:56:44

bit of romance on Valentine's. And

this guy is new to snowboarding,

0:56:440:56:51

excellent use of oven gloves there!

Now red-hot, ice coal. -- cold.

0:56:510:57:04

First up, giant slalom, there you

are going for gold, snap, snap,

0:57:040:57:09

snapping away, putting you off, and

it all goes wrong, so turn them into

0:57:090:57:13

skittles.

That was a strike, wasn't

it?

Frimpong made down safely in the

0:57:130:57:24

skeleton, despite finishing last,

showing off some great dance moves.

0:57:240:57:28

Next, women's ice socket, USA

against Canada could end up as the

0:57:280:57:32

gold medal match, but look at this

for fisticuffs! The gold medal match

0:57:320:57:40

is going to be fierce. And finally

the Norwegian men's curling team, we

0:57:400:57:44

love their trouser collection.

Today's fetching tropical look, you

0:57:440:57:50

will see these on the beaches as and

when you can. We liked the look!

And

0:57:500:57:55

it was a lot warmer down there

today, I do not know if they are

0:57:550:58:00

specific.

Do think they look at the

temperature?

Shorts next time!

That

0:58:000:58:06

would be something, you might regret

putting your knee on the ice! Alex,

0:58:060:58:11

you will be up in the early hours to

see whether Dom can do it. Chris,

0:58:110:58:17

congratulations again on your gold

medal today! Thank you for being

0:58:170:58:20

with us. And Chemmy, as always,

wonderful stuff. Women's slalom

0:58:200:58:26

tomorrow, then the men's super-G,

the race was on to be the first

0:58:260:58:30

British medallist, it could be Dom

Parsons or Andrew Musgrave in the

0:58:300:58:34

cross-country...

Drama! Lindsey

Jacobellis is down!

0:58:340:58:44

Jacobellis is down!

Oh, my goodness!

Talk about saving the best until

0:58:440:58:46

last!

The gamble may be paying off

for Aksel Lund Svindal!

Lightning

0:58:460:58:53

quick from Mikaela Shiffrin!

Sensational skating!

Musgrave

0:58:530:58:58

announces his arrival at the top of

the sport!

What a finish that was!

0:58:580:59:04

Come on, Dom!

0:59:040:59:05

Clare Balding presents highlights of the day's action at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Gold medals up for grabs include the men's alpine skiing super-G, the pairs' figure skating and the thrilling men's snowboard cross. Meanwhile, Great Britain's men's and women's curling teams are both in action in the round-robin stages.
