CHEERING

0:01:480:01:54

On the first day of the Korean New

Year, we are in the skeleton zone!

0:02:330:02:39

Dom Parsons needed to embrace

the fear and enjoy the expectation

0:02:390:02:40

then he might, just might become

Britain's first medallist at these

0:02:400:02:43

Winter Olympic Games.

0:02:430:02:46

All he had to do was travel twice

down a sliding track just under

0:02:460:02:50

a mile long at 80 miles per hour

with his chin a few

0:02:500:02:53

centimetres from the ice

and without bumping any sides.

0:02:530:02:55

What's so hard about that?

0:02:550:02:56

Welcome to Today at the Games,

here's what's coming up...

0:02:560:03:02

It's been 24 years since the last

British male won an individual

0:03:020:03:05

Winter Olympic medal.

0:03:050:03:10

Sitting fourth after two runs, could

Parsons make the podium?

0:03:100:03:15

In snowboarding, we'll find out

which woman can boss the cross...

0:03:150:03:22

A feast of alpine skiing

with the women's slalom

0:03:220:03:24

and men's super-g...

0:03:240:03:29

In most winter sports

Britain is lucky to have

0:03:290:03:31

one medal contender,

but in skeleton we get two

0:03:310:03:35

as Yarnold and Deas slide

into action...

0:03:350:03:40

And joining me today... Skeleton

pioneer Alex Coomber, Olympic

0:03:400:03:45

champion and choreographer in

demand, Christopher Dean. Our Alpine

0:03:450:03:49

expert has always is Chemmy Alcott.

Welcome.

0:03:490:03:53

He was sliding at a blistering pace

in the practice rounds,

0:03:530:03:56

then after runs one and two

Dom Parsons found himself just 0.03

0:03:560:03:58

seconds behind the medals.

0:03:580:03:59

Could he go faster and claim GB's

first medal of the games?

0:03:590:04:02

Here's Matt Pinsent.

0:04:020:04:05

Day two of the men's skeleton

competition and a fantastic chance

0:04:090:04:14

for a piece of British history.

Dominik Parsons and fourth

0:04:140:04:18

overnight, a tiny fraction behind

the position for a medal. A

0:04:180:04:22

fantastic atmosphere in the

grandstand with friends, family and

0:04:220:04:26

team-mates turning out to cheer him

on... Day three started with the

0:04:260:04:31

overnight leader and local hero, Yun

Sungbin. Hull a big moment for

0:04:310:04:39

Korea.

No Asian skeleton athlete has

other won a medal in this. Can he go

0:04:390:04:49

under 50 seconds? As he gets to the

line... Not quite.

0:04:490:04:56

line... Not quite. 50.18 reinforcing

his position as the gold medallist

0:04:570:04:58

in waiting. Next, setting off in the

silver medal position at the moment,

0:04:580:05:05

Nikita Tregubov...

He is one second

behind not even halfway down.

50.5,

0:05:050:05:12

every single run a position Nikita

Tregubov. One of the greats for

0:05:120:05:20

Latvia. The silver medallist in

Sochi and Vancouver, Yun Sungbin.

0:05:200:05:26

Yun Sungbin will find an athlete who

is too good for him.

The best

0:05:260:05:32

straight so far!

Dukurs in second

place. Just ahead of Tregubov.

We

0:05:320:05:43

need you there, come on!

A great

step forward from run number one.

0:05:430:05:49

Even if you cannot get past Dukurs

or Tregubov now, on Parsons, surely

0:05:490:05:54

you cannot allow the gap to grow

between himself and the other two

0:05:540:05:59

riders?

He had incredible speed down

the track. Hull two tenths of a

0:05:590:06:08

second off at the moment. He

finishes...

Right in the mix! He

0:06:080:06:15

goes ahead of Tregubov into third

place.

0:06:150:06:21

place.

Tomass Dukurs followed, but

he could not beat the Briton.

Great

0:06:240:06:28

Britain's Jerry Rice remained hot on

the heels of the top ten.

Rice,

0:06:280:06:33

rice, rice!

0:06:330:06:35

This is David and Judith Parsons,

nervously waiting for their final

0:06:420:06:45

run. What do you make of his first

three runs?

They are the best I've

0:06:450:06:50

ever seen him do. Each one, one

after the other, they were so close

0:06:500:06:57

to whatever Dukurss

0:06:570:07:03

does.

And how is it now?

It is

exciting but nerve

0:07:030:07:10

as well. I think that he can do it.

Using right frame of mind. -- he is

0:07:100:07:17

in the right frame of mind.

Could

Dom Parsons be about to create some

0:07:170:07:26

British history? The final heat is

run in reverse order. The fastest

0:07:260:07:31

man, Yun Sungbin, goes last. Jerry

Rice came with the aim of finishing

0:07:310:07:34

in the top 12 and for him it was to

be a momentous day...

Jerry Rice,

0:07:340:07:40

what a games he has had. And 51

seconds! A marvellous run!

0:07:400:07:47

Eventually he finished in tenth.

Pushing hard to break into the top

0:07:470:07:53

three, Tomass Dukurs.

He will come

back fighting, he wants a medal.

He

0:07:530:08:01

is quicker than Kaymer but his final

time needs to be in the really low

0:08:010:08:07

50s to put pressure on. That would

cut the mustard. -- that will not

0:08:070:08:18

cut the mustard.

0:08:180:08:24

cut the mustard.

The four-time world

champion, Tregubov in fourth

0:08:240:08:26

place... This fellow has been so

consistent. He has gone 50.5 every

0:08:260:08:31

run so far.

We hope he has

guidelines for his competition but

0:08:310:08:39

we need him to make a little mistake

somewhere, to help Dom Parsons out a

0:08:390:08:43

little bit.

Lovely and clean through

15. The final curve for Tregubov.

0:08:430:08:52

He's got another 50.5, four on the

bounce for him! We know Parsons can

0:08:520:08:56

go quicker. That is the excitement.

I know!

Dom Parsons, next. Sit

0:08:560:09:05

tight, everybody. He says that he

thrives on the pressure. His

0:09:050:09:11

nickname is The Wizard. Let's see if

he can work the Winter Olympic magic

0:09:110:09:16

and get himself a medal. The

equation is simple. Directly against

0:09:160:09:21

Tregubov. You follow their relative

times together. If his time goes

0:09:210:09:26

green and Tregubov's name, he is in

good shape. He starts off behind...

0:09:260:09:31

Hold it together and stay calm, do

not concentrate on the end result.

0:09:310:09:39

The lines are good at the moment.

This is good sliding. We need you to

0:09:400:09:45

keep it together! We are building

into the fastest part of the track.

0:09:450:09:50

Exhilarating downhill. Is this the

corner where we build it into the

0:09:500:09:54

medal? Does it have enough pace?

This will be key, coming down the

0:09:540:09:58

track... Will this run get Great

Britain their first Olympic medal of

0:09:580:10:04

the Winter Olympics?

He is

marginally in front of Tregubov!

0:10:040:10:09

Uphill... Spend 16... Is this to be?

No! He misses out by two hundredths

0:10:090:10:20

of a second. Tregubov celebrates a

guaranteed medal. Dom Parsons, he

0:10:200:10:25

may be agonisingly missing out.

My

word.

He knows that he has missed

0:10:250:10:32

it.

0:10:320:10:37

it.

Next, Martin Raw Dukurs in

second place. Just in front of Dom

0:10:370:10:41

Parsons.

0:10:410:10:47

We do need a mistake from Dukurs. He

hasn't produced many of those over a

0:10:470:10:52

glittering career which has seen him

win silver medals at two Olympic

0:10:520:10:55

Games.

That was a mistake there! A

big mistake he has never made

0:10:550:11:01

before. Is he able to keep the time,

is he also going to drop a vital

0:11:010:11:08

split-second down the track?

He has

made two mistakes at the top of the

0:11:080:11:13

track. He comes in late. The time is

ebbing away... This is where Dukurs

0:11:130:11:18

could lose on his speed. The mistake

at the top, it is two hundredths,

0:11:180:11:24

that is all we need.

He is in the

red...

0:11:240:11:28

CHEERING

He is behind Dom Parsons!

0:11:280:11:36

Unbelievably, he has his medal!

Come

on, Great Britain!

Dom Parsons has a

0:11:360:11:42

bronze medal because Martins Dukurs

was unable to hold it together. The

0:11:420:11:53

great Latvian. Settle back and enjoy

what we think will be the gold medal

0:11:530:11:58

performance from Yun of Korea,

starting a mile clear of his

0:11:580:12:04

competitors. One save run will see

him reach the gold medal he. No

0:12:040:12:08

Asian athlete has ever won a medal.

Yun is seconds away from the gold.

0:12:080:12:14

He is a superstar in Korea. He wins

by the biggest margin in history! A

0:12:140:12:20

track record to finish off. 1.63

seconds. Incredible for Yun

a track

0:12:200:12:28

record, the fourth run and

absolutely smashing it. We do have a

0:12:280:12:34

bronze medal for Great Britain with

Dom Parsons.

0:12:340:12:39

Bronze medallist at the Olympic

Games, the first medallist for Team

0:12:390:12:43

GB here at Pyeongchang. Give us your

reaction?

It hasn't sunk in yet. I

0:12:430:12:48

thought I had lost it. After the

fourth run, I thought it had gone

0:12:480:12:56

away. I looked at the time, made a

couple too many mistakes in that run

0:12:560:13:05

Bert Martins made more. The last

person I thought.

You're great on

0:13:050:13:11

TLC, she is 93, she has stayed up

too?

-- your great Aunt Elsie.

0:13:110:13:23

STUDIO: This was Dom Parsons being

awarded his bronze medal, the man

0:13:230:13:28

from Walthamstow. The first man to

win a skeleton medal since 1948 for

0:13:280:13:34

Great Britain. He was still doing

the maths to know whether he made it

0:13:340:13:38

back onto the podium. He has, he

did. That is his for life. I caught

0:13:380:13:44

up with the Olympic gold medallist

from 2010 Amy Williams.

0:13:440:13:52

We saw him go through the range of

despair and delight?

We were doing

0:13:520:13:55

the same in the commentary box! I

don't know how he held it together!

0:13:550:14:00

He put down such good runs. The

final run... He slipped down! And

0:14:000:14:10

final run... He slipped down! And we

saw Dukurs coming down. That was it.

0:14:100:14:12

He thought he had lost it and

suddenly he was in the bronze

0:14:120:14:17

position and have that medal.

0:14:170:14:20

Amy Williams was so

0:14:200:14:22

Amy Williams was so thrilled. Alex

Coomber was watching it earlier.

0:14:220:14:24

Your thoughts on who was the best on

all four runs?

This race was a

0:14:240:14:35

unique race. It is unlike any other

track we have been on. The fastest

0:14:350:14:38

starters were not necessarily

getting those medals. Ironically

0:14:380:14:41

between the medallists we have the

fastest starter and the 21st

0:14:410:14:47

starter. The Koreans had an

advantage, they had been on the

0:14:470:14:53

track a lot and from Yun Sungbin we

saw that his steering, he basically

0:14:530:14:57

got it down to only really needing

to do small toe taps. You will see

0:14:570:15:02

other sliders shifting their body

weight as they go through the bends

0:15:020:15:07

but he knew it so well that the

toe-tapping was enough for him and

0:15:070:15:10

he literally had the fastest time on

every split.

0:15:100:15:16

A lovely, sunny day on the sliding

track and they wanted to see South

0:15:160:15:21

Korea's first gold medal is not on

skates. They have won Bundu short

0:15:210:15:25

track speed skating, one in speed

skating and one in figure skating.

0:15:250:15:30

Watch him going down, his toe just

comes out, it is not a reaction

0:15:300:15:33

because he thinks he is doing

something wrong, he's purposely

0:15:330:15:36

using it to steer, then bringing his

legs nice and close together again,

0:15:360:15:42

getting a good aerodynamic position

and he is only steering when he

0:15:420:15:48

really needs to which created a lot

of speed down the track.

He was head

0:15:490:15:52

and shoulders above the rest but Dom

Parsons was close to winning a

0:15:520:15:55

silver medal, had he not made that

mistake in his fourth run, he would

0:15:550:15:58

have got a civil, but so would

Martins Dukurs have got a silver if

0:15:580:16:01

he did well in his last run. He

looked disappointed, though after

0:16:010:16:05

his run because he thought that was

it, Don.

He was two hundredths off

0:16:050:16:10

the silver in the end, we always

knew there would be chopping and

0:16:100:16:13

changing places which made it

exciting. They have a start record

0:16:130:16:16

on the track and the downtime record

but they don't have the top speed

0:16:160:16:19

record and if they did, Dom had

Beattie fastest top speeds ever of a

0:16:190:16:24

men's skeleton on that track, he was

the only slider to break 81 mph.

He

0:16:240:16:30

becomes the first man to win medal

in skeleton since John Cramond in

0:16:300:16:35

1948 and you have got to look at

this picture because just to admire

0:16:350:16:39

his helmet! He was an RAF pilot in

World War II who came back into the

0:16:390:16:43

sport of sliding when the war ended

and went to the games in 1948 and

0:16:430:16:51

won a bronze medal and ended up

writing on winter sports for the

0:16:510:16:53

Observer so he was a wonderful guy

within Winter sports but John

0:16:530:16:58

Cramond, who died in 1978, the last

man before Dom Parsons.

I think he

0:16:580:17:02

would have been very proud.

Thankfully technology has got

0:17:020:17:05

better. Underneath your neck.

The

style as well!

The women have been

0:17:050:17:14

more successful in the 21st century

and we will be reflecting on Lizzie

0:17:140:17:16

and Laura and how they got on later.

That is the very short list of six

0:17:160:17:21

British men who have won individual

medals at the Winter Olympics and

0:17:210:17:25

obviously, Chris has won a gold

medal but as part of a pair so you

0:17:250:17:28

don't get in.

0:17:280:17:30

Andrew Musgrave was hoping

to write his name onto that list

0:17:300:17:32

in the 15k cross country race.

0:17:320:17:34

After Britain's best ever showing

in the skiathlon on Sunday,

0:17:340:17:36

where he finished seventh,

Musgrave was aiming for better.

0:17:360:17:39

Every four years they change

from classic style to freestyle,

0:17:410:17:44

which Musgrave much prefers

but amongst a field

0:17:440:17:47

of 119 from 62 different

countries, Musgrave melted.

0:17:470:17:53

He said he went off slowly

intentionally but could never pick

0:17:530:17:57

up the pace and admitted to having

a shocker as he finished only 28th

0:17:570:18:02

more than two minutes behind

the historic winner -

0:18:020:18:06

Switzerland's Dario Cologna,

who became the first cross-country

0:18:060:18:11

skier to win the same individual

event three times in a row.

0:18:110:18:19

COMMENTATOR: This is going to be

awesome. Lindsey Jacobellis

0:18:200:18:25

extending her lead in the early

stage of the course! She has got the

0:18:250:18:28

clear line. This is a lap of honour

for Lindsey Jacobellis, the

0:18:280:18:34

American... Oh, drama! Lindsey

Jacobellis is down! This is

0:18:340:18:40

incredible! Lindsey Jacobellis has

thrown her gold medal away in the

0:18:400:18:43

last 100 metres. This is ridiculous.

0:18:430:18:48

Such drama in the women's snowboard

cross - can't believe

0:18:480:18:51

that was 12 years ago.

0:18:510:18:52

Aged 32, Lindsey Jacobellis

is still hunting for that elusive

0:18:520:18:57

gold medal but snapping at her heels

are some very talented youngsters.

0:18:570:19:01

Expect 16-year-old Julia Pereira de

Sousa from France to push her close.

0:19:010:19:08

The first of four quarterfinals saw

Zoe Gillings Brier going for GB.

0:19:080:19:12

She needed to finish in the top

three to progress to the semis.

0:19:120:19:14

Zoe, here in the white bib,

looked like she might make it

0:19:140:19:17

through after overtaking

on the inside into third position.

0:19:170:19:23

But defending Olympic champion

Eva Samkova snuck past, denying Zoe

0:19:230:19:25

a spot in the semifinals.

0:19:250:19:28

The 32-year-old mum

was pleased with that finish,

0:19:280:19:32

and we pick up the action

with the first semifinal.

0:19:320:19:34

Here's Ed Leigh and Tim Warwood...

0:19:340:19:37

COMMENTATOR: Keep an eye on Lindsey

Jacobellis in the green bid. Eva

0:19:400:19:45

Samkova, the favourite in red,

Charlotte Banks, Nelly Moenne

0:19:450:19:48

Loccoz, blue and yellow, Alexandra

Jekova in white and the Blackbeard

0:19:480:19:53

of the Canadian, Tess Critchlow.

Here we go, the first semifinal,

0:19:530:19:58

this will be good. Eva Samkova goes

out brilliantly in the master

0:19:580:20:05

trousers.

Charlotte Bankes again

with a brilliant start and then a

0:20:050:20:09

terrible bird bath.

Or going big,

Lindsey Jacobellis in the green.

0:20:090:20:15

Nelly Moenne Loccoz leading with

Lindy Jacobo somehow yields.

The

0:20:150:20:20

white bib proving lucky for

Alexandra Jekova who is making a

0:20:200:20:23

move on the Frenchwoman.

Brilliant

squash from Jacko Palace, taking all

0:20:230:20:27

of the jump and went long and low

and now she's got three metres out

0:20:270:20:32

in front of Eva Samkova. Nelly

Moenne Loccoz on the inside, all the

0:20:320:20:36

way through, Charlotte Bankes, from

nowhere, how did she get from the

0:20:360:20:40

back to the front?

She was not able

to make it stick although she tried

0:20:400:20:44

to force Lindsey Jacobellis who can

now apply the flush and crush on

0:20:440:20:48

her. Riding light to the top of the

corner. On the inside!

Alexandra

0:20:480:20:54

Jekova almost down and now back to

back, she over jumped, Charlotte

0:20:540:20:57

Bankes is out and Eva Samkova takes

advantage, sliding into second,

0:20:570:21:02

Alexandra Jekova in third, behind

Lindsey Jacobellis who looks to be

0:21:020:21:06

losing speed on her on the home

straight.

Eva Samkova, the Olympic

0:21:060:21:11

champion in a master trousers, can

ride the final straight so well and

0:21:110:21:14

Lindsey Jacobellis with a nervous

look over her shoulder. She will

0:21:140:21:18

remain in second and advance but

that is a warning shot to Lindsey

0:21:180:21:22

Jacobellis. She needs to be further

ahead in the final on the straight

0:21:220:21:26

if she wants to take the win because

she has not got the speed that Eva

0:21:260:21:30

Samkova has.

0:21:300:21:34

Back up to the top again now for the

second of the semifinals.

There is

0:21:410:21:48

Julia Pereira De Sousa Mabileau.

16

years old, were racing way beyond

0:21:480:21:52

her years and there is no short of

talent on this side of the draw,

0:21:520:21:56

either.

And the youngster has gone

out like a wet cat, absolutely

0:21:560:22:00

flying, here. So she obviously

didn't read the script.

Both of the

0:22:000:22:07

French upfront with Michaela Moy. --

the Italian flying through the

0:22:070:22:17

section but Pereira De Sousa, tucked

in behind them and it is actually

0:22:170:22:20

Chloe Trespeuch shoe dies out in

front. -- who dives out in front.

0:22:200:22:27

Pereira De Sousa slip-sliding behind

Moioli and it is so useful in this

0:22:270:22:33

section, she pops out from behind

the traffic.

Keep your eye on the

0:22:330:22:38

fourth placed rider, Belle

Brockhoff, the experienced

0:22:380:22:42

Australian, the 24-year-old.

Moioli

dives and takes Chloe Trespeuch.

0:22:420:22:52

Belle Brockhoff need something to

happen as they go to the home

0:22:520:22:54

straight and it starts to become a

pumping battle. Chloe Trespeuch shoe

0:22:540:22:58

in second and Belle Brockhoff is

down. It is routine now for the

0:22:580:23:03

first three as Moioli goes long,

Chloe Trespeuch shoe and Pereira De

0:23:030:23:08

Sousa.

No time to look behind and

see that they are clear but there we

0:23:080:23:14

go, the first three finishers

advancing to the final after seeing

0:23:140:23:18

their fellow countrymen take gold

yesterday, the whole French crew

0:23:180:23:24

will be beside themselves for this

lady 's snowboard cross final now.

0:23:240:23:31

Now we move onto the women's

snowboard cross final, the fastest

0:23:310:23:35

six women who battled their way

through the quarters and the

0:23:350:23:38

semifinals to this point.

This could

go anyway.

Yes, they all very very

0:23:380:23:43

quick. Great start for Eva Samkova

and Moioli.

Neck and neck.

Pereira

0:23:430:23:50

De Sousa Mabileau on the outside,

the 16-year-old Frenchwoman who may

0:23:500:23:53

have the lead. But Moioli and

Lindsey Jacobellis, is it?

Yes,

0:23:530:23:59

upfront with Moioli now, different

lines being taken but Lindsey

0:23:590:24:03

Jacobellis having a look. She's out

in front. She needs to hold other

0:24:030:24:08

make this stick but Moioli has been

fast and look at Pereira De Sousa

0:24:080:24:13

Mabileau! And Chloe Trespeuch in

second!

Pereira De Sousa Mabileau --

0:24:130:24:19

Moioli diving down but Chloe

Trespeuch shuts the door, and they

0:24:190:24:24

are back-to-back, Moioli overtaking

always, Lindsey Jacobellis in the

0:24:240:24:30

fight of her life, if she wants the

gold medal, she's got to go,

0:24:300:24:34

slotting in behind Chloe Trespeuch

in the most technical section of the

0:24:340:24:37

course. Moioli out in front. Can

they get some drag on her as they

0:24:370:24:42

come into the section, Moioli so

fast all season, five World Cups

0:24:420:24:46

under her belt.

And look at the

youngster, Pereira De Sousa Mabileau

0:24:460:24:50

coming into second from fourth, the

16-year-old!

Eva Samkova at the last

0:24:500:24:55

minute start driving, neck and neck

for silver and bronze. Who is going

0:24:550:24:59

to get it? They are all down! All

over the place. No doubting who took

0:24:590:25:06

the gold, Moioli but the equipment

says Pereira De Sousa Mabileau in

0:25:060:25:10

second. Look at them, they have

given everything they've got to this

0:25:100:25:13

course. That was as intense as sport

gets. One of the closest races, not

0:25:130:25:25

just in Olympic women's snowboard

cross history but of all time.

0:25:250:25:33

cross history but of all time. Oh...

It was Eva Samkova and Lindsey

0:25:340:25:36

Jacobellis, Eva Samkova at the top

and Lindsey Jacobellis at the

0:25:360:25:40

bottom, goodness, gracious, what a

final! Thank you, boardercross.

And

0:25:400:25:46

thank you to the team as well, I

still think the Italian outfit are

0:25:460:25:49

the best so they get a gold medal

for that and that is their second

0:25:490:25:53

gold of the games. But poor Rod

Lindsey Jacobellis just missing out.

0:25:530:25:57

-- Paul Oldham Lindsey Jacobellis.

0:25:570:25:59

Now to the men's super-g,

the second fastest alpine

0:26:010:26:03

event after the downhill.

0:26:030:26:04

There's more control gates, making

it more of a technical discipline,

0:26:040:26:06

but it's still a case of get down

that mountain as fast as you can!

0:26:060:26:11

It was bright and clear for the

superfast super-g and first of the

0:26:110:26:14

big names that was the defending

champion.

0:26:140:26:17

With Norwegian posted an early

target time of 1:24.60 two. His

0:26:170:26:23

compatriot, Aksel Lund Svindal al,

was going for the speed double,

0:26:230:26:27

never done before by a man at the

same games. But he could not nudge

0:26:270:26:31

his fellow Norwegian off top spot.

Up next was an Austrian skiing

0:26:310:26:37

legend, and Matthias Mayer got off

to a flyer with a run of power,

0:26:370:26:42

aggression and precision, setting a

brilliant time of 1:24.40 four. Beat

0:26:420:26:46

that!

Yes!

World champion beat Furze

was the last of the super-g stars to

0:26:460:26:54

grace the slopes, a slight slip

midway down cost him dearly. He

0:26:540:26:58

would have to settle for silver,

behind that Common Mateus Maier.

0:26:580:27:02

After his downhill gold in 2014, the

Austrian becomes only the second man

0:27:020:27:07

to win gold in both the downhill and

super-g discipline the Olympics.

0:27:070:27:12

Beat Furze took the silver and

Kjetil Jansrud the bronze.

0:27:120:27:21

It's that time again.

0:27:300:27:31

Here's Paddy with the latest

from the Game of Stones.

0:27:310:27:34

In the women's competition, a day on

from Britain's team your head, but

0:27:380:27:44

meanwhile, out on the ice, something

strange has been happening. This is

0:27:440:27:49

the Canadian team, as near as you

can get to stone cold certainties in

0:27:490:27:54

this sport. And they keep losing.

Three games, three defeats, and this

0:27:540:28:02

is what they are saying in Canada.

Bottom of the round robin, a

0:28:020:28:08

sweeping change is needed if they

are to avoid an unthinkable early

0:28:080:28:12

exit. Normal rank on the men's rink,

Canada top but Britain's Dean Smith

0:28:120:28:17

were still in touch and up against

the second favourites, Sweden, and

0:28:170:28:23

their formidable skip. But Kyle

Smith and crew did not fear the

0:28:230:28:26

Norsemen. In fact, in the third end,

the Swedes were left with no way out

0:28:260:28:31

and the Brits did the pillaging.

Great Britain stealing, to keep the

0:28:310:28:35

pressure on.

Despite not having the

final shot, points are rarer get

0:28:350:28:40

such skilled opponents and it would

get even better for Smith and

0:28:400:28:43

company.

There you go, nice shot,

Kyle Smith continuing a great form

0:28:430:28:49

he has shown already this evening.

Halfway through, 5-3 up but then the

0:28:490:28:53

Swedes started turning the stones

with some supreme work, taking a

0:28:530:28:56

crucial three. 6-6 going into the

ninth end but for all Smith's

0:28:560:29:03

excellent early work, this was the

defining shot of the match, he

0:29:030:29:06

needed to clear out both red stones

here.

He's missed it! Over and

0:29:060:29:13

probably out. Well, what a chance

that was. You won't get too many of

0:29:130:29:16

them.

Sweden took tee, leaving

Britain needing to do the same in

0:29:160:29:23

the final end, always unlikely. This

was curling's version of a knockout

0:29:230:29:27

blow. -- Sweden took two.

He's going

to go and that's it, Sweden know

0:29:270:29:33

they've been in a tough match

against Great Britain, two wins and

0:29:330:29:37

two losses after four.

Three of the

medal hopefuls in the first four

0:29:370:29:41

games but we are one of those medal

hopeful so we know we need to

0:29:410:29:44

compete against them and we do

compete against them, we are just as

0:29:440:29:47

good as them on any given day and I

think we showed that today. We are

0:29:470:29:51

disappointed but it is not the end

of the world.

0:29:510:29:57

Still to come.

0:29:570:29:58

Can Hanyu do it again?

0:29:580:29:59

The man from Japan starts

the defence of his singles title.

0:29:590:30:03

One down, three to go.

0:30:030:30:05

Mikaela Shiffren tries to slalom her

way to a second gold of the Games.

0:30:050:30:08

She's aiming for four.

0:30:080:30:13

Great in practice -

now Lizzy Yarnold and Laura Deas

0:30:130:30:16

hope to go even better

in the real thing.

0:30:160:30:18

Hold on tight for the first two

rounds of the skeleton.

Only gone and done it!

there and there is trouble coming

0:30:580:31:02

for all of those in Pyeongchang. I

think we need some sparkle and some

0:31:020:31:07

silk and chiffon!

0:31:070:31:09

Onto ice skating and

the men's singles.

0:31:090:31:10

Expect jumps like you've

never seen before.

0:31:100:31:12

Basically, if you can't land

a quad, you might as well

0:31:120:31:15

not be on the squad.

0:31:150:31:16

These guys are like pop stars on ice

and for the Japanese media,

0:31:160:31:19

this could be their biggest story

of the games as Yuzuru Hanyu tries

0:31:190:31:22

to become the first man since 1952

to retain his title...

0:31:220:31:30

The quad off begins

0:31:350:31:36

The quad off begins with Hanyu of

Japan, recovering after an ankle

0:31:360:31:41

injury in November, he needed police

officers and security to guide him

0:31:410:31:45

through the airport as he arrived

for his first competition in months.

0:31:450:31:49

He did not take part in the team

event but in the singles he had fans

0:31:490:31:54

screaming in delight...

0:31:540:32:00

screaming in delight... COMMENTATOR:

The entry from the spread Eagle,

0:32:010:32:03

before and after the jump... A

quadruple toe loop... And the

0:32:030:32:08

triple... The error it is!

There is

the roar!

0:32:080:32:21

the roar! And the roof comes off the

rink! Sublime from the defending

0:32:210:32:27

Olympic champion.

This is one of the

strangest sights in sport, the

0:32:270:32:36

shower of Winnie the Pooh bears.

It's an Olympic record. Over to the

0:32:360:32:40

king of the quads, Nathan Chen, the

only athlete to land five in a

0:32:400:32:46

single programme. Could the

17-year-old live up to the hype?

0:32:460:32:51

COMMENTATOR: The opening

combination... The quadrupole Lutz

0:32:510:32:58

and down. He would have wanted that

combination but he fell. And also on

0:32:580:33:04

the triple axel... He has gone.

There has been so much attention on

0:33:040:33:10

this young man's shoulders. He is 18

years old. Because of what he can

0:33:100:33:16

achieve at his best but you get the

impression this may not be his

0:33:160:33:18

games.

Even Tigger couldn't bounce

back. Nathan Chen was only 17th and

0:33:180:33:28

his medal chances seemingly out of

sight. Up next, Shoma Uno from

0:33:280:33:33

Japan, famed as the first man to

successfully land a quadruple flip

0:33:330:33:38

in competition. Could he make it a

Japanese one two. COMMENTATOR: The

0:33:380:33:46

quadruple flip...

Such a compact

skater. Short but strong.

The triple

0:33:460:33:53

toe loop... Fantastic stuff!

0:33:530:34:01

toe loop... Fantastic stuff!

Shoma

Uno, the dark horse of this Olympic

0:34:010:34:04

competition.

And from Spain, the six

time European champion Javier

0:34:040:34:10

Fernandez after his first Olympic

medal. This is his last chance. He

0:34:100:34:14

is retiring at the age of 26 after

these last games. He turned to

0:34:140:34:20

Charlie Chaplin for his inspiration.

COMMENTATOR: It's a triple toe

0:34:200:34:25

loop... And lovely stuff. Right in

front of the judges. A second jump.

0:34:250:34:32

A quadruple Salchow. And gorgeous!

Here we go! STUDIO: Into second

0:34:320:34:43

place, four points behind Hanyu,

medals in grasp. Then, the Chinese

0:34:430:34:47

wonder kid left his two pet

crocodiles at home with his parents.

0:34:470:34:57

Would Jin Boyang's routine be snappy

enough to get the lead? COMMENTATOR:

0:34:570:35:02

He has got it!

20 years old, he has

been the one to watch for the last

0:35:020:35:06

STUDIO:

0:35:310:35:35

Hanyu has laid the surest foundation

is down here today.

STUDIO: We are

0:35:350:35:36

all going, pet crocodiles? That is

true! Nathan Chen was not on the

0:35:360:35:40

leaderboard. We would have expected

to see him there. He is the king of

0:35:400:35:45

the quad, isn't he?

He has not been

beaten this season and going into

0:35:450:35:49

the competition, in America, it was

a given that he would come away with

0:35:490:35:53

a medal, if not the gold. For him to

crash and burn like this is very

0:35:530:35:58

unusual. I've seen him train where I

am. He is so consistent. I think it

0:35:580:36:05

came down to the pressure of the

event. The

0:36:050:36:08

came down to the pressure of the

event. The nation that is watching

0:36:080:36:11

him, the expectation. The young

pretender. This is his first

0:36:110:36:15

Olympics. He has won everything

ahead of this. It was a

0:36:150:36:19

Olympics. He has won everything

ahead of this. It was a big news

0:36:190:36:20

story in America, for sure.

Hugely

disappointing for him, he is down in

0:36:200:36:26

17th place. His team-mate made

history today, what did Vincent Zhou

0:36:260:36:31

do?

0:36:310:36:32

history today, what did Vincent Zhou

do?

He made a quad Lutz for the

0:36:320:36:35

first time in the Olympics. That

will go down in history books. That

0:36:350:36:42

is taking off on a left back outside

edge but rotating in the opposite

0:36:420:36:47

direction. Use the talk from your

shoulders to get the rotation. This

0:36:470:36:52

goes against it and you pull the

other way.

It is really hard on your

0:36:520:36:59

Blixt?

Yes, one of the most

difficult after the axel.

And the

0:36:590:37:06

most beautiful storyteller is Javier

Fernandez?

Yes, he tells a story,

0:37:060:37:15

this is the Charlie Chaplin routine

that he was performing. The jumps

0:37:150:37:21

are immaculate. He is tidy in the

air, he has a clean landing. He

0:37:210:37:25

connects with the audience. At the

end of the routine everyone was

0:37:250:37:29

clapping and on his side.

The leader

is Hanyu. They have 4.5 minutes to

0:37:290:37:39

express themselves. Can he do it,

does he have the support?

It will be

0:37:390:37:44

the story if he doesn't do it, that

is for sure. There are potentially

0:37:440:37:49

five quads that these guys will be

pulling out in the competition. They

0:37:490:37:53

are back ending their routines.

There are big jumps that are coming

0:37:530:37:57

at the end of the routines.

That is

tough, because physically...

By the

0:37:570:38:05

time you've done your 4.5 minutes,

you are sucking on a lot of air!

I

0:38:050:38:11

wonder, what is he

0:38:110:38:12

you are sucking on a lot of air!

I

wonder, what is he doing with the

0:38:120:38:13

Winnie the

s?

I hope he is donating

them to charity!

Giving them to the

0:38:130:38:18

crocodiles!

0:38:180:38:23

Much expected of Hanyu,

while the Americans were hoping

0:38:230:38:25

for huge things from Mikaela

Shiffren.

0:38:250:38:26

She won gold in the women's giant

slalom yesterday and four years ago,

0:38:260:38:30

she became the youngest slalom

0:38:300:38:32

She's got big ambitions

in Pyeongchang.

0:38:320:38:34

was considered the most likely.

0:38:440:38:50

Women's slalom time. All eyes were

0:39:020:39:06

Golden girl of the American team

retain her title?

0:39:060:39:14

retain her title? It seemed

inevitable. This is her signature

event. She started in an

after her first run.

In good shape

as she goes for the double.

0:39:220:39:30

Meanwhile, the slalom specialist was

flying. In second place. But Wendy

0:39:300:39:34

Holdener went even faster. This

acceleration rocketed her to the

0:40:120:40:17

racers in the past have done the GS

and Olympic double in the same

0:40:170:40:22

games. Andrea Mead Lawrence has done

it. The first mistake for Mikaela

0:40:220:40:35

Shiffrin. In 2002, in Salt Lake

City. Can Mikaela Shiffrin do it?

0:40:350:40:44

Not only is she looking for the GS

slalom double, she is looking to

0:40:440:40:50

defend the slalom gold. She won four

years ago in Sochi. Finishing with

0:40:500:40:55

incredible speed! She gets into

second. She will not make it two

0:40:550:40:59

gold medals. She made that mistake,

that error cost her the chance to

0:40:590:41:05

lead the race. Next, poised for the

final time today and on her way,

0:41:050:41:16

Frida Hansdotter. She had a solid

fast run. And Goode giant slalom day

0:41:160:41:21

yesterday. She likes this hill. A

majority of her advantage is intact.

0:41:210:41:29

The worst of the wind is on this

part of the course. As Frida

0:41:290:41:33

Hansdotter drops in. She goes to

work. Still not .85 in front.

0:41:330:41:39

Hansdotter has never won and Olympic

medal. Can she put that right today?

0:41:390:41:45

She was sixth in the giant slalom

yesterday. The former World Cup

0:41:450:41:53

slalom champion. Half a second to

lead. Katharina Gallhuber's lead is

0:41:530:42:02

1:38.90 five. Can Hansdotter beat

it? She can! She is guaranteed

0:42:020:42:06

silver at worst.

0:42:060:42:12

silver at worst. The last skier...

Wendy Holdener of Switzerland. She

0:42:120:42:17

comes in with an advantage of two

tenths. Hansdotter's split there.

0:42:170:42:25

Holdener trailing by a 100th of a

second. She has got the worst of the

0:42:250:42:30

wind. It is whipping in from the

skiers left to the skiers right. Up

0:42:300:42:34

into the goggles. She hasn't done

much damage. Here on in, she could

0:42:340:42:43

begin to relax a little more. She

has got to push through every one of

0:42:430:42:49

these terms. Only four hundredths

now. She can turn this around and

0:42:490:42:54

take an Olympic title for 2018.

Wendy Holdener of Switzerland,

0:42:540:43:01

trying to deny Hansdotter...

Holdener takes the silver.

0:43:010:43:04

Hansdotter is Olympic champion!

Holdener takes a silver medal for

0:43:040:43:10

Switzerland. Katharina Gallhuber

comes away with the bronze medal,

0:43:100:43:15

with Mikaela Shiffrin pushed out of

the medals, down to four. Frida

0:43:150:43:22

Hansdotter is the Olympic slalom

champion. STUDIO: Swedish fans

0:43:220:43:28

celebrating there, the fourth gold

of the games. Christopher Dean makes

0:43:280:43:32

an elegant exit. Tell me

0:43:320:43:35

of the games. Christopher Dean makes

an elegant exit. Tell me about Frida

0:43:350:43:36

Hansdotter?

She is consistent, she

has delivered all season. She has

0:43:360:43:40

got second places, five of them.

Always the bridesmaid. Today she

0:43:400:43:45

lifted her game. I don't want people

to think she won today because

0:43:450:43:49

Mikaela Shiffrin had an off day, she

deserved it. She charged like I've

0:43:490:43:58

never seen her do before.

She was

really calculated. And the major

0:43:580:44:03

shock is Mikaela Shiffrin isn't even

on the podium?

0:44:030:44:06

shock is Mikaela Shiffrin isn't even

on the podium?

30

0:44:060:44:07

shock is Mikaela Shiffrin isn't even

on the podium?

30 World Cup

0:44:070:44:08

victories in this discipline

committee hasn't been beaten in a

0:44:080:44:10

major tournament since 2011 but she

looked off. We know that she vomited

0:44:100:44:15

before the first run. She wasn't all

there today. There was hesitation in

0:44:150:44:20

her skiing, we never see that.

There

is a lot of norovirus going around,

0:44:200:44:25

well over 300 cases.

0:44:250:44:31

well over 300 cases. It's very

disappointing for Mikaela Shiffrin,

0:44:310:44:33

more chances for her to come.

0:44:330:44:35

Well, one skeleton competition down

and one Olympic medal.

0:44:350:44:37

Now it's the turn of the women,

Laura Deas went fast in practice

0:44:370:44:40

and Lizzy Yarnold is looking

to become the first ever Brit

0:44:400:44:43

to defend a Winter Olympic title.

0:44:430:44:46

Laura Dees, one of the fastest

starters in the field...

0:44:510:44:59

starters in the field...

It is down

to you, in that moment. Nobody else.

0:44:590:45:06

I love this sport. I am in it

because I want to win.

Lizzy Yarnold

0:45:060:45:15

is the Olympic champion!

0:45:150:45:17

Welcome to be Sliding Centre, as 20

women prepared to go for their first

0:45:230:45:28

heat of the skeleton. Lizzy Yarnold,

the defending champion, goes off in

0:45:280:45:33

14th in this opening round, Laura

Deas is intent.

Excitement in the

0:45:330:45:38

camp is as you would imagine, it is

huge. Everyone on cloud nine and the

0:45:380:45:44

girls, they have been concentrating

on their race, they've got to go out

0:45:440:45:48

today and do what they've done in

training. Both have been putting

0:45:480:45:51

down the fastest runs and

0:45:510:45:58

down the fastest runs and they are

in a really good place. We are on

0:45:580:46:00

the track where it is really cold.

The ice will be very hard. Then

0:46:000:46:03

they've got to stay and keep cool,

they are both good enough to bring

0:46:030:46:06

home a medal. Day one and we are

very excited!

0:46:060:46:12

Jacqueline Lolling from Germany is

without doubt the most excess will

0:46:120:46:16

scan it and Olympian in the last 18

months. The preevent favourite, a

0:46:160:46:20

bit of corrective work to do early.

Because of the group they are using

0:46:200:46:26

on the left-hand side is all sort of

just giving them a bit of a waddle

0:46:260:46:30

because it is not quite cut

properly. This is one of the best

0:46:300:46:35

sliders, she takes a high, diving

line-out. Maybe that is her style

0:46:350:46:39

and she needs to use this to get the

speed in and use the exit of 70 per

0:46:390:46:44

Sivera crossing to wait as she now

builds speed into the crucial

0:46:440:46:46

corner.

Looking beautiful so far,

perfect line, her body position, she

0:46:460:46:53

looks cool and calm on the thread,

so far, I reckon we're going to see

0:46:530:46:58

another track record.

Definitely,

coming up the hill, but she going to

0:46:580:47:05

Berlin from even further?

Absolutely

superb, the world champion, just

0:47:050:47:10

setting the mark a little bit

higher. Laura Dees is next. Laura,

0:47:100:47:14

the 29-year-old, her first Olympics.

Has start time, exactly what I was

0:47:140:47:21

hoping for. She has got an

incredible start. She is a strong

0:47:210:47:25

and powerful girl.

Number seven in

the world, two higher than Lizzy

0:47:250:47:31

Yarnold, she has started the run

well.

She certainly has an cheesy

0:47:310:47:35

using the corners well to push her

across and in and around the track,

0:47:350:47:39

to try to use the track to her

benefit and get where she needs to

0:47:390:47:43

be by not doing too much. Is she

losing a bit of time? That will be a

0:47:430:47:49

costly mistake but is it enough to

just keep her in the mix? Because of

0:47:490:47:53

her start, we know these speeds, she

will lose a couple of tenths by the

0:47:530:47:58

time she gets across the line.

As

long as she does not lose too much,

0:47:580:48:03

that rub on ten down the chicane

might be costly for Laura Deas, and

0:48:030:48:07

suddenly, she is two tenths behind.

Lazy time.

She cannot win a medal on

0:48:070:48:16

this run but she can certainly lose

it with mistake so she needs one in

0:48:160:48:19

the bag. She has been sliding well

all week. She is a quality athlete.

0:48:190:48:29

The Olympic champion, Lizzy Yarnold,

underway.

A couple of mistakes

0:48:290:48:33

between four and five. She is

settling into the sled. She's an

0:48:330:48:38

Olympic champion and a quality

athlete but she has got the pressure

0:48:380:48:42

on these games of wanting to keep

hold of her title. One of the better

0:48:420:48:48

runs in. Is it enough? Is she going

to lose speed by having to do too

0:48:480:48:53

much work? This could be the run

that puts her at the top of the pile

0:48:530:48:56

going into the second one.

It's

going to be close, needs to be clean

0:48:560:49:00

out of 15, close to the right-hand

wall, the final turn to home and she

0:49:000:49:04

goes first! Quicker than Jacqueline

Lolling.

Having a little chat,

0:49:040:49:11

whether there is an issue with her,

I'm not quite sure. She did not look

0:49:110:49:15

happy, there.

Lizzy Yarnold leading

after the first run. Run two is not

0:49:150:49:22

far away.

Let's open Laura has gone

away, all she needed to do was get

0:49:220:49:31

her steering better in corner nine

and have a clean straight.

Laura

0:49:310:49:35

Deas is underway.

She needs a big

run, she needs to settle into her

0:49:350:49:39

run and do what you did before it

but make the small adjustment in the

0:49:390:49:46

corner down towards the Dragon's

tale, the top part of the track was

0:49:460:49:49

really good but she started to lose

a bit of speed as she came into

0:49:490:49:53

corner eight, maybe doing a bit too

much on the sled to achieve the

0:49:530:49:56

line. Now she's relaxed, can she

find the speed here?

This is the big

0:49:560:50:01

part.

Good girl, she's done it,

nailed it, come on, keep it

0:50:010:50:06

together, she's got to stay relaxed

and

0:50:060:50:14

and keep position in the uphill

section and I think she will hold

0:50:140:50:16

onto the lead.

She's got to go,

really, I think under 52 seconds at

0:50:160:50:20

the finish. 16, again a wobble. She

has not quite got under 52 seconds

0:50:200:50:23

but how that will affect her final

standings after run two, we will

0:50:230:50:27

have to wait and see.

0:50:270:50:34

Lizzy Yarnold, then, off and on her

way.

She is so good at performing

0:50:340:50:38

under pressure. She loves the

pressure, Sheila was the thrill, and

0:50:380:50:42

she always competes really well in

four run races, like World

0:50:420:50:48

Championships and Olympic Games,

there's always four runs over two

0:50:480:50:53

days... She just made the same

mistake some other sliders have made

0:50:530:50:56

in the top part of the track so she

needs to keep it together and keep

0:50:560:50:59

calm, still a lot of time in the

lead.

If you make mistakes, recover

0:50:590:51:04

well. She needs to do that.

Definitely and she's just about got

0:51:040:51:08

away with it, coming through a bit

sideways, I think that might cost

0:51:080:51:11

her some speed so is it enough for

her to stay in front of Jenin

0:51:110:51:15

because this will be close? I think

she might drop behind the Austrian

0:51:150:51:18

as we go into the second day.

This

will be very close between

0:51:180:51:23

Jacqueline Lolling, Janine Flock and

Lizzy Yarnold who finishes now,

0:51:230:51:27

dropped back to third place, a tenth

of a second off the leader. Lizzy

0:51:270:51:32

Yarnold and Laura Deas for Great

Britain, third and fourth and still

0:51:320:51:35

very much in this Olympic event.

It

was a much faster track than it had

0:51:350:51:40

been in training.

0:51:400:51:43

I have got a bit of a sore throat

and sign has been going on.

Was that

0:51:450:51:49

the issue at the end of the first

run?

I'm struggling to breathe

0:51:490:51:53

enough. It is a brilliant track and

has been a great first night of

0:51:530:51:57

racing. This is the bit I love,

going home and everybody getting

0:51:570:52:00

nervous and I get a great night's

sleep and then fighting again

0:52:000:52:05

tomorrow.

They are both in a good

position at the moment, very close

0:52:050:52:08

to the top and really tight so it's

going to be a great couple of runs

0:52:080:52:11

tomorrow. Yeah, I will be shutting

myself hoarse.

It's really nice to

0:52:110:52:15

be sitting in fourth, only seven

hundredths out of the medals.

How

0:52:150:52:20

much of an inspiration was done

today?

It was a emotional watching

0:52:200:52:24

it go from heartbreak to elation in

the space of a few minutes! What an

0:52:240:52:28

inspiration. He has worked so hard

for so many years and I'm so pleased

0:52:280:52:32

for him that it came out in the end.

You could tell how much Laura Deas

0:52:320:52:38

is enjoying the experience, moving

up from six to fourth after two

0:52:380:52:42

runs, Lizzy Yarnold fastest on the

first run, not quite so smooth on

0:52:420:52:45

the second and she is in third but

only a tenth of a second behind the

0:52:450:52:48

leader. Alex, everything to play

for, there.

This race is turning out

0:52:480:52:54

as we thought, the same as the men,

chopping and changing, they are

0:52:540:52:58

faster, not as fast, coming first or

ninth, getting the top speed and

0:52:580:53:02

then a slower start. Amongst the

girls, Lizzy Yarnold set a track

0:53:020:53:06

record but she did not have a top

speed, Jacqueline Lolling had the

0:53:060:53:09

top speed but she did not have the

fastest art, Chanel had the fastest

0:53:090:53:13

art and then Laura in the second run

was two hundredths of the fastest

0:53:130:53:19

downtime so they are all in the mix.

You don't know what will happen.

I

0:53:190:53:23

was worried about Lizzy Yarnold at

the end of the first run and you

0:53:230:53:26

could see her saying she felt dizzy

and the performance analyst had to

0:53:260:53:31

help her up and off the track and

she said afterwards she was

0:53:310:53:35

struggling to breathe. She is not

100% right, whatever she says.

Know

0:53:350:53:40

and hopefully it is nothing to worry

about but she did not look 100%. She

0:53:400:53:45

said that there's a lot of dust and

it is very cold and we know that she

0:53:450:53:49

has suffered in the past from this

problem with her balance and her

0:53:490:53:53

ears. She did a second run, not as

good as the first but she still

0:53:530:53:57

ended up right in the mix. Tomorrow

is another day.

The second run was

0:53:570:54:02

not just a case of one mistake, it

was all a bit...

From top to bottom,

0:54:020:54:08

if we are perfectly honest, it was

not great. She did not look

0:54:080:54:12

comfortable. She was skittish,

trying to work against the sled a

0:54:120:54:15

bit and maybe she needs to get down

the run, get it out of the way and

0:54:150:54:19

focus on tomorrow.

How impressed

were you with Laura Deas,

0:54:190:54:23

particularly the second run?

She was

amazing, almost the perfect run,

0:54:230:54:27

literally, very little you can

criticise about it and having had

0:54:270:54:31

not such a great first run, I think

the mental ability to come back and

0:54:310:54:35

really fight hard for the second one

shows that she is not going to let

0:54:350:54:39

anyone walk over her and I think

she's definitely one to watch

0:54:390:54:43

tomorrow.

Third and fourth runs to

come tomorrow morning. We will be

0:54:430:54:46

live with both of them... We are on

BBC Two now but we will be on BBC

0:54:460:54:52

One tomorrow.

0:54:520:54:55

Here's Paddy with the best

of the rest from Pyeongchang.

0:54:550:55:00

Another day, another that speed

skating gold medal, this time Esmee

0:55:000:55:02

Visser in the women's 5000 metres.

She was not even expected to make

0:55:020:55:06

the squad which tells you something

about the Netherlands' depth in this

0:55:060:55:10

sport, they have no won six out of

seven speed skating gold medals at

0:55:100:55:14

this games and a Dutchman turned

Canadian won the other one. Now to

0:55:140:55:18

the top seed world of the women's

freestyle aerials, only two the six

0:55:180:55:22

finalists landed clean jumps and one

of those was the winner, Hanna

0:55:220:55:25

Huskova, who picked up Belarussian's

first gold of the limpets. The

0:55:250:55:30

catchily titled Olympic Athletes

from Russia were fancied to win

0:55:300:55:34

men's ice hockey gold but lost their

first match to Slovakia. They took

0:55:340:55:38

their frustration out on poor old

Slovenia, finishing 8-2, and the

0:55:380:55:42

Americans next. It's been an

eventful few days for the Jamaican

0:55:420:55:46

bobsleigh team. First their coach

walked out and threatened to charge

0:55:460:55:49

them to use the sled, which she said

she was responsible for. Now be a

0:55:490:55:54

producer is providing an alternative

sled. Maybe they

0:55:540:56:01

sled. Maybe they will make a movie

about it one day! Ski jumping was in

0:56:010:56:03

the original Winter Olympics and

Robert Johansson has the moustache

0:56:030:56:05

of a man who might have been there

in 1924. Nothing old-fashioned in

0:56:050:56:08

his technique today, though, this

magnificent man turned flying

0:56:080:56:10

machine leads the way for Norway in

the qualifying for the large hill.

0:56:100:56:17

The first day Germany have not won a

gold medal but they are still at the

0:56:170:56:21

top of the table. We are in 21st

spot, Great Britain with our bronze.

0:56:210:56:28

Let's go off piste...

0:56:280:56:31

A bit of a theme to the various

messages we have had today, kids

0:56:330:56:37

being creative, curling Lego

although I'm nodule De Smidt for the

0:56:370:56:42

stones. A jelly bowl on the head and

a colander, good use of kitchen

0:56:420:56:46

utensils.

Nice body position!

And

there is the two man Bob. Look at

0:56:460:56:55

this, curling in the kitchen and

look at our detailed this is. They

0:56:550:56:59

have built a house.

Commitment.

Let's go for red-hot, ice-cold.

0:56:590:57:09

First up in slalom, you have been

telling us about out of all the

0:57:090:57:17

other.

She's not fighting it. She's

still going.

Still going, picking up

0:57:170:57:21

speed, still going. All of the fuss

over the VA are in football, all you

0:57:210:57:28

need is to be a dextrous referee.

Look at this in ice hockey, getting

0:57:280:57:33

in there, no goal-line technology

needed, I can see it is not a goal.

0:57:330:57:39

Next it is women's freestyle skiing

aerials. As Tom Petty once said, I'm

0:57:390:57:44

free, free falling, it has got to

hurt but what a recovery. She tried

0:57:440:57:48

to style it out but her is will be

burning because look at her coach!

0:57:480:57:56

Say what you really think!

Finally,

proof that hot countries can compete

0:57:560:58:00

at the Winter Olympics, this is

Nigeria in the women's skeleton.

Next it is the housewives favourite,

double's topless flag beret who put

0:58:070:58:16

clothes on today, finishing last but

proudly carrying the Mexican flag,

0:58:160:58:20

live long, the Olympic spirit!

Tomorrow's

0:58:200:58:26

live long, the Olympic spirit!

Tomorrow's schedule is super

0:58:260:58:27

exciting. What would your words B-2

Elise Christie going in the 1500

0:58:270:58:32

metres?

Don't overthink it, do your

thing, trust your instincts.

She is

0:58:320:58:36

hopefully going to have

quarterfinals, semifinals and final

0:58:360:58:39

tomorrow morning and the final two

runs for Laura Deas and Lizzy

0:58:390:58:43

Yarnold.

Possibly the most exciting

skeleton race we have ever seen,

0:58:430:58:48

definitely.

If that isn't

inspiration to tune in, I don't know

0:58:480:58:52

what is, and if you get up early,

Izzy Atkin, you will see Katie

0:58:520:59:02

Summerhayes as well, both of them

with World Championship medals,

0:59:020:59:04

going in the sling slopestyle and I

would like to mention another

0:59:040:59:06

programme if you want to change

weight from live sport, there is a

0:59:060:59:09

Winter Olympics special Pointers at

6:25pm on BBC One tomorrow. I was

0:59:090:59:13

competing with Jenny Jones and Amy

Williams was there as well, Robin

0:59:130:59:17

Cousins, Wilf O'Reilly, Jayne

Torvill, it was a heck of a line-up

0:59:170:59:20

so watch it! Team GB's first medal

of the games is in the bag. After

0:59:200:59:25

the provider. See you tomorrow. Bush

Parsons the provider.

0:59:250:59:35

Christie is out of it once again!
