Three gold medals for Great Britain.

What a night.

Olympic long jump

0:00:110:00:18

champion, Greg Rutherford.

Mo Farah

for Great Britain.

Jessica Ennis is

0:00:180:00:27

the Olympic champion.

MUSIC

0:00:440:00:49

In the summer of 2012,

the nation bathed in a golden glow.

0:01:380:01:41

Now in the snow and the on the ice,

there was a chance to achieve

0:01:410:01:44

something that had never been done

before at a Winter Olympics.

0:01:440:01:47

Could it be Super Saturday

all over again?

0:01:470:01:49

Team GB had five very real

hopes of medals today,

0:01:490:01:53

but that's easy to say.

0:01:530:01:54

Worth reminding you that the last

time Britain won multiple medals

0:01:540:01:57

on one day at the Winter Olympics

was February 9th, 1924.

0:01:570:01:59

Here are the famous five

who were going for gold.

0:01:590:01:59

Lizzy Yarnold carried the flag

at the Opening Ceremony and has made

0:02:030:02:06

no secret of the scale

of her ambition.

0:02:060:02:08

She wants to become the first

British athlete to retain

0:02:080:02:10

a Winter Olympic title.

0:02:100:02:11

Laura Deas is right there

beside her, as the sport of skeleton

0:02:110:02:14

aims for two places on the podium.

0:02:140:02:16

At the halfway stage,

she sat just seven hundredths

0:02:160:02:18

of a second away from a medal.

0:02:180:02:23

Izzy Atkin is the youngest

member of the team.

0:02:230:02:25

The 19-year-old was also

eyeing slopestyle success.

0:02:250:02:28

And Elise Christie -

her Olympic story so far has been

0:02:280:02:31

one of disaster and disappointment.

0:02:310:02:33

Could she finally deliver

the dream result?

0:02:330:02:40

Four wonder women excelling

at the highest level

0:02:400:02:42

on the world stage.

0:02:420:02:44

Four women to inspire the next

generation of athletes.

0:02:440:02:48

Four women who are

targeting Olympic glory.

0:02:480:02:49

Three more women to inspire you.

0:02:490:02:51

I'm joined by downhill

ski racer and four-time

0:02:510:02:53

Olympian Chemmy Alcott,

skeleton bronze medallist

0:02:530:02:57

from 2002 Alex Coomber,

and three-time Olympian and former

0:02:570:03:00

short track speed

skater Sarah Lindsay.

0:03:000:03:04

First to the skeleton,

and after Runs 1 and 2 yesterday,

0:03:040:03:06

defending Olympic champion

Lizzy Yarnold was in third position,

0:03:060:03:09

one tenth of a second behind

the leader, Germany's Jacqueline

0:03:090:03:13

Lolling.

0:03:130:03:15

Laura Deas was a fraction behind

her, but in a sport of tiny margins,

0:03:150:03:19

one minuscule error can be

the difference between

0:03:190:03:20

victory and defeat.

0:03:200:03:21

The message was clear - slide clean.

0:03:210:03:23

Here's Amy Williams.

0:03:230:03:25

So this is it, the Olympic final,

and believe me, there's no feeling

0:03:310:03:36

like it and nothing means more. And

with the British women up there in

0:03:360:03:42

the start hut, there's a very real

chance that we could bring home two

0:03:420:03:46

medals, with Lizzy in third place

and Laura in force, going into the

0:03:460:03:51

final two runs. -- Laura in fourth

place.

0:03:510:03:58

COMMENTATOR:

First to go with world champion

0:03:580:04:01

Jacqueline Lolling. She produced a

slow beginning, slight mistakes all

0:04:010:04:05

the way down, and she was to lose

her lead.

0:04:050:04:12

her lead. That lead taken by the

wonderfully consistent Janine Flock,

0:04:120:04:17

three really solid runs took her to

the top.

0:04:170:04:24

the top. Lizzy Yarnold, the

defending Olympic champion, with a

0:04:250:04:28

slightly subdued heat two, was much

better in heat three, putting

0:04:280:04:32

herself within a hair's-breadth of

Janine Flock. Laura Deas maintained

0:04:320:04:39

her wonderfully consistent Olympic

Games, with the quickest run of her

0:04:390:04:43

three. However, she stays in fourth

place. Anna Fernstadt come at first

0:04:430:04:51

Olympic Games, through in her best

of three runs so far, closing

0:04:510:04:55

slightly on Laura Deas into fifth

place.

0:04:550:04:59

That's runs three done. I

0:05:050:05:07

That's runs three done. I wanted to

find the two important mums, the

0:05:070:05:10

biggest supporters.

0:05:100:05:15

biggest supporters. We've got Su two

and Lizzy's month. Our you feeling?

0:05:150:05:27

I was in bits, I didn't know whether

to be sick, or cry, or both. It was

0:05:270:05:32

ghastly.

And how about you, Judith?

You've been here before. She's put

0:05:320:05:36

you through this feeling.

We have

been through before. Yesterday was

0:05:360:05:41

really nervous, today, I feel so

much better, really excited, because

0:05:410:05:46

I know Lizzy is really good under

pressure, so I feel more relaxed and

0:05:460:05:50

I'm really enjoying today.

But we

are all chairing Lizzy Yarnold and

0:05:500:05:55

Laura Deas on, it's going mad here,

and we have one run left. He was

0:05:550:06:00

going to bring home the medals, and

I jolly hope it's both of them! For

0:06:000:06:04

their mums' sake!

COMMENTATOR:

0:06:040:06:12

And now we come to the potential

medallists will stop Anna Fernstadt,

0:06:120:06:18

improvement seen right the way

through the competition, and she's

0:06:180:06:23

just 14 hundredths of Jacqueline

Lolling of the moment. She needs to

0:06:230:06:32

do what Tina Hermann has just done.

A little bit, just slightly

0:06:320:06:37

controlled the skid. Like most of

the Germans, can she make it back in

0:06:370:06:45

these bottom three corners?

They are

good at that, aren't they? Really

0:06:450:06:50

good at holding speed. She keeps her

nose in front, Tina Hermann moves up

0:06:500:06:57

to fifth place.

Hold it together!

How are we at home? How are we all?

0:06:570:07:04

Laura Deas

0:07:040:07:05

How are we at home? How are we all?

Laura Deas goes

0:07:050:07:05

How are we at home? How are we all?

Laura Deas goes next for Great

0:07:050:07:06

Britain in fourth place. Doesn't

really tell the measure of her

0:07:060:07:08

consistency at this Olympic Games

and let's not forget as well, for

0:07:080:07:13

Laura, it's her first Olympic Games,

aged 29. Stunningly consistent, good

0:07:130:07:19

starter. We want

0:07:190:07:24

starter. We want that 51.8, or

better. First, we need the usual

0:07:240:07:27

good start. Can she get under 5.1?

She's got it, 5.09. Your bobbin

0:07:270:07:37

she's matched her start from run

three, can she hold it together now?

0:07:370:07:42

She's got to stay calm. She is using

her feet there. She's got quite a

0:07:420:07:46

big lead, but look at how there,

perfect lines, perfect sliding. Hold

0:07:460:07:51

it together, Laura.

Four turns up on

Tina Hermann. She's got her rise on

0:07:510:07:58

the medal, if she can.

And now she

carpets into the corner, perfect.

0:07:580:08:06

She's improved on that, we have to

hope that exit on nine was enough to

0:08:060:08:11

keep her moving on up the

leaderboard.

Bend 15, lovely, dead

0:08:110:08:15

centre, slightly high on the

entrance, to 16. She is confirmed as

0:08:150:08:20

fourth at the very worst. Laura Deas

has done all she can. Will it be

0:08:200:08:26

enough though? 51.9. I'm not sure,

would have much preferred 51.8.

She

0:08:260:08:36

was slowly losing time the further

she got down the track towards the

0:08:360:08:39

bottom. She had an incredible start,

but I think you could see she wasn't

0:08:390:08:43

quite as relaxed as she was on her

previous run. She knows so badly she

0:08:430:08:48

wants to move up. Just there, that's

what probably did it. She didn't

0:08:480:08:52

have the perfect line that she had

on the run before. However, she then

0:08:520:08:58

did perfect her steer and didn't

click. She has moved on up, she's

0:08:580:09:03

there, still in the in standing in

the first place.

Look how close Tina

0:09:030:09:09

Hermann got to her, but Laura Deas

confirmed fourth. Can it get any

0:09:090:09:14

better for her? Jacqueline Lolling,

two years of complete excellence.

0:09:140:09:17

She admitted to nerves that the very

start of the competition and they

0:09:170:09:22

have shown. Jacqueline Lolling has

got two 52 seconds runs to her name.

0:09:220:09:30

If she does that here, she's in

trouble, we wish her well because

0:09:300:09:34

she's had a it isn't two years,

really the world's best. How is it

0:09:340:09:39

looking to you?

The deficit is from

the start because Laura started so

0:09:390:09:43

much quicker, but she is making

little mistakes here. Is this going

0:09:430:09:46

to be the run that these Laura Deas

move up a medal? That big skid could

0:09:460:09:54

be the mistake that will give Laura

Deas what she needs to move up.

0:09:540:09:57

She's still building speed. I don't

know how as she comes down to the

0:09:570:10:00

bottom of the track.

Down to a tenth

second last curve, she's wide on it,

0:10:000:10:06

nothing between Jacqueline Lolling

and Laura Deas. Jacqueline Lolling

0:10:060:10:10

just touches Laura Deas out, she

does what she does all of the time

0:10:100:10:14

and that's fine speed very, very

late. She's got amazing credentials.

0:10:140:10:19

Jacqueline Lolling guaranteed a

medal.

The Germans are just so good

0:10:190:10:24

at this. They are not the best

starters in the world and yet they

0:10:240:10:29

build speed with every single

corner, down every single track in

0:10:290:10:32

the world.

Lizzy Yarnold next. The

Olympic champion. Can she make

0:10:320:10:41

history and win it again? First

things first, before Janine Flock

0:10:410:10:45

goes, Yarnold has got to stay ahead

of Jacqueline Lolling. How was she

0:10:450:10:51

done it?

She started well, she needs

to focus on her against the track.

0:10:510:10:55

Don't worry about the German all the

Austrian, she needs to put in a

0:10:550:10:59

perfect run. She cannot make a

mistake at all on this run.

0:10:590:11:02

Everything is looking good so far.

The lines are good, she has good

0:11:020:11:06

control. She's starting to build

speed, corn eight, drops away into

0:11:060:11:10

nine. This is crucial. She's got the

little took, but look at the gap.

0:11:100:11:21

She's got half a second. Is this the

run that's going to give her her

0:11:210:11:25

second gold medal and defend her as

Olympic champion?

Just bend 15 to

0:11:250:11:27

negotiate. She had a big lead over

Jacqueline Lolling. This could be at

0:11:270:11:31

least silver for Lizzy Yarnold. She

goes to the front and how! Look at a

0:11:310:11:37

time! 51.46, deploy all the -- to

pile the pressure on Janine Flock.

0:11:370:11:44

That's a gold medal winning run, I'm

sure of it. We're looking at the two

0:11:440:11:49

time Olympic champion.

Janine Flock

to come, what pressure is now on the

0:11:490:11:53

Austrian. Lizzy Yarnold, a

sensational final run. She knows it

0:11:530:11:57

as well.

She does know it. That was

a track record. That was

0:11:570:12:02

unbelievable. Yes, she made the

mistake there, but she had so much

0:12:020:12:08

time in her back to be able to play

with. Janine Flock is going to be up

0:12:080:12:13

there in the changing room, it is

silent in the changing room. She's

0:12:130:12:16

the only one there and she now knows

this run has to be the run of her

0:12:160:12:20

life to be able to take over the

lead, but I'm not sure she can do

0:12:200:12:24

it. I really do believe there that

Lizzy Yarnold has just put down

0:12:240:12:27

potentially a gold medal run. Come

on Janine, hold it together, you've

0:12:270:12:31

got a good push and she can do this.

Mentally she needs to focus now.

For

0:12:310:12:37

Austria, who have never won a medal.

Janine Flock, former world number

0:12:370:12:42

one, needs the run of her 28 years

to tip out Lizzy Yarnold. It looks a

0:12:420:12:47

big ask. She's got a decent enough

start though, 5.2 to.

That's not

0:12:470:12:54

going to be enough. She's made a

mistake, it will drop away. This is

0:12:540:12:58

how good Lizzy's run was, she's made

one mistake and she's already

0:12:580:13:05

behind. Can she build up as she

comes down the run? This is not bad,

0:13:050:13:10

staying in front of -- this is not

about her staying in front of Lizzy.

0:13:100:13:16

It is she going to drop behind the

silver or the bronze? This run is

0:13:160:13:20

good it's looking like she will hold

onto a bronze medal position --

0:13:200:13:28

Deas' run is good.

Where Ruiz Flock

going to finish? She goes Forth!

0:13:280:13:37

Lizzy Yarnold wins gold again! Laura

Deas has won bronze as well. What a

0:13:370:13:46

performance from Lizzy Yarnold, the

first British athlete to

0:13:460:13:49

successfully defend her Olympic

title and four Laura Deas, who

0:13:490:13:53

dreams of medals at Badminton and

Burley, she's now got one at the

0:13:530:13:58

Olympic Games! Janine Flock,

crestfallen. You've got to feel for

0:13:580:14:03

her, but Lizzy Yarnold has done it

again and a great day for Great

0:14:030:14:08

Britain at the Winter Olympics!

0:14:080:14:11

How are you feeling to back up the

medal in Sochi with another one

0:14:150:14:22

here?

I'm exhausted. Yesterday,

after the first run, I almost pulled

0:14:220:14:26

out of the competition because my

chest infection was so uncomfortable

0:14:260:14:30

and I couldn't breathe. So my

physio, Louis, she gave me to a

0:14:300:14:34

talking to and said, you can do it

and if it wasn't for every single

0:14:340:14:39

one of the team, my coach, Eric, I

wouldn't be here right now so I'm

0:14:390:14:42

hugely grateful to them.

Deep

breath. Olympic bronze medallist, an

0:14:420:14:47

amazing achievement at your first

Games. Honestly can't believe it's

0:14:470:14:51

happening. It's like a dream. I. I

knew I could do it and then... I

0:14:510:14:57

thought it was going to be snatched

away at the last minute and then

0:14:570:15:00

when Janine came down behind me I

just couldn't believe it was

0:15:000:15:04

happening. I'm so pleased for Lizzy,

it's a dream come true, honestly.

0:15:040:15:08

What else have you got left to do in

this sport?

I don't know! I just

0:15:080:15:15

want to take a nap!

0:15:150:15:21

When she wakes up from that naps...

A second gold for Lizzy Yarnold and

0:15:220:15:30

watching it back, even though we

knew the result, it is still

0:15:300:15:33

exciting, so emotional. And Alex

come you predicted the most exciting

0:15:330:15:36

skeleton competition ever and it

was.

You couldn't write it, if he

0:15:360:15:41

wanted to write a drama, it had

everything, you had agony and

0:15:410:15:45

ecstasy. The Olympics is all about

the unexpected and this is exactly

0:15:450:15:49

what we had here, the people we

thought had chances, where were

0:15:490:15:53

they? They weren't there. No one

really thought Lizzy Yarnold could

0:15:530:15:57

do it, the season she has had has

been pretty bad but it came out

0:15:570:16:01

there and showed that on the day,

she is so tough and it's just

0:16:010:16:06

incredible.

I think that is why

because she is not normally this

0:16:060:16:09

country does not normally go for it

like this.

She's a bright as.

She

0:16:090:16:14

not like Chemmy

0:16:140:16:16

like this.

She's a bright as.

She

not like Chemmy, here, but she was

0:16:160:16:17

so amazed she managed to do it and

to have Laura Deas with her on the

0:16:170:16:20

podium, they are great friends.

Laura, we saw her yesterday, she was

0:16:200:16:26

fourth, just out of the medals but

we knew she was so consistent on the

0:16:260:16:30

track and had the second fastest

time all day which is really good

0:16:300:16:35

going into other raises and she held

it together, she did not let the

0:16:350:16:39

situation overwhelm her. Two

medallists, it is just phenomenal.

0:16:390:16:45

Let's concentrate on Lizzy because

the final run was a drag record. --

0:16:450:16:49

track record.

0:16:490:16:53

She did not hang around the start,

she was great.

She knows she is in

0:16:530:16:59

second but only by two hundredths of

a second and this track is make or

0:16:590:17:02

break as we have seen, you've got to

lay down your run, be calm, stick to

0:17:020:17:07

your lines.

Visits our line compared

to Janine Flock.

Janine Flock on her

0:17:070:17:12

last run, her lines were not great

and Lizzy's lines, she took all of

0:17:120:17:18

the training and all the race runs

to finally work it out and when it

0:17:180:17:21

counted, she produced her best run.

Much as she deserves to have

0:17:210:17:26

defended her title and all the hard

work she has put in, I know you are

0:17:260:17:30

particularly pleased and proud of

Laura Deas because all the way

0:17:300:17:33

through, you have said she drove the

course better than anyone.

It is

0:17:330:17:37

always nice to see someone who has

done really well in training and has

0:17:370:17:40

been really consistent actually win

something because sometimes it does

0:17:400:17:43

not happen. She came down exactly

the same as Dom Parsons, in fourth,

0:17:430:17:49

she thought she had lost it but two

minutes later, she realises she is

0:17:490:17:53

on the podium and we can see her,

here, she does not know what to do

0:17:530:17:57

with herself, she never thought this

would happen. She obviously really

0:17:570:18:00

hoped it would but this is the

limericks, who knows what will

0:18:000:18:04

happen?

What you learned from all of

that is how to soak up pressure but

0:18:040:18:07

you learn a lot about the success

skeleton and you at the list of

0:18:070:18:11

medallists in recent years and that

is hugely impressive and I have to

0:18:110:18:21

credit you, Alex, because you

started this in the 21st-century,

0:18:210:18:24

you began again this desire for

success and we could do it even

0:18:240:18:30

though we have not got a drag.

When

I was competing, people looked at

0:18:300:18:35

Britain and they dismissed us, the

Americans, the Canadians, the

0:18:350:18:38

Germans with par tracks, the

Austrians and French got a drag and

0:18:380:18:42

they would look at us and say they

don't need to worry about them

0:18:420:18:45

because they don't have a track but

it shows that Britain, even though

0:18:450:18:48

we are not a winter sport country,

if we can put the right training,

0:18:480:18:54

equipment and support staff and find

the right people a look at what we

0:18:540:18:57

can achieve.

And look at how many

people were watching and enjoying

0:18:570:19:01

it.

0:19:010:19:04

Until today, there had only

been ten gold medals

0:19:040:19:06

at the Winter Olympics

for Great Britain.

0:19:060:19:08

Make that 11 and for the first time,

repeat the same name twice.

0:19:080:19:14

The British ice hockey dream in

stripes has been covering itself in

0:19:150:19:18

glory at the Olympic contest.

This

is a really good first run by the

0:19:180:19:25

Britons, they could be on their way

to a gold medal.

John Curry did not

0:19:250:19:29

put a foot wrong.

Cousins, the gold

medallist of 1980.

The people are

0:19:290:19:39

standing and applauding.

It is

Olympic gold for Great Britain!

Amy

0:19:390:19:48

Williams is the queen of speed!

Lizzy Yarnold is the Olympic

0:19:480:19:54

champion! My goodness.

Lizzy

Yarnold, what a performance! The

0:19:540:20:01

first British athlete to

successfully defend her Olympic

0:20:010:20:02

title!

It means that at the last

three Olympics, Great Britain is

0:20:020:20:08

unbeaten in the skeleton.

0:20:080:20:10

She's the best female short track

speed skater in the world,

0:20:110:20:14

but Elise Christie's Olympic journey

has been a tale of tears.

0:20:140:20:16

Disqualified in all three

of her events four years ago

0:20:160:20:19

in Sochi, and then crashing out

of the 500m here on Tuesday.

0:20:190:20:22

Today was the 1500 metres,

the distance at which she became

0:20:220:20:24

world champion a year ago.

0:20:240:20:25

Short track can be

the cruellest of sports.

0:20:250:20:27

Could Elise finally

bury those demons?

0:20:270:20:35

Oh, they've gone down!

And again,

turmoil for Christie!

Oh, I can't

0:20:460:20:52

believe it, Christie has been

penalised again.

Elise Christie does

0:20:520:20:57

get the chance to race the gold. A

nation holds its breath. Christie

0:20:570:21:04

tries to make it on the inside,

Christie crashes out! Christie is

0:21:040:21:09

out of it once again!

0:21:090:21:11

A big night short track racing

ahead, not least in this women's

0:21:190:21:23

1500 metres, the heat is about to

start. -- heats. Elise Christie back

0:21:230:21:28

on the ice for the first time since

the 500 metres final the other day,

0:21:280:21:32

quick run through of the runners and

riders, we have got Tifany Huot

0:21:320:21:36

Marchand from France, Mame Barney

from the United States, the

0:21:360:21:42

18-year-old, and Zhou Yang from

China, currently in second position,

0:21:420:21:47

number 137 but Zhou Yang is the two

time and defending Olympic champion

0:21:470:21:51

at this distance, Bianca Walter from

Germany, and Valerie Maltais from

0:21:510:21:55

Canada who finished sixth in Sochi

in this particular distance. A

0:21:550:21:59

reminder it is a 13.5 lap race so

Elise Christie, there, just tucked

0:21:590:22:04

in in third place.

Again, the

skaters jostling for position,

0:22:040:22:10

Valerie Maltais in the lead, Elise

Christie in third, with still ten

0:22:100:22:14

laps remaining, so nothing really to

worry about now as Biney of America

0:22:140:22:20

moves around the outside.

A reminder

that three of the six will go

0:22:200:22:26

through, Biney gliding around into

first place, being followed now by

0:22:260:22:29

the much more experienced figure of

Valerie Maltais, and Olympic silver

0:22:290:22:34

medallist in the relay four years

ago. Zhou Yang is third and in fifth

0:22:340:22:40

place at the moment, Elise Christie,

biding her time, Zhou Yang moves the

0:22:400:22:45

outside. Bianca Walter from Germany

tries to follow her up into second

0:22:450:22:50

place at the moment, behind the

defending Olympic champion. Christie

0:22:500:22:53

is still back in fifth.

Obviously

she feels very comfortable at the

0:22:530:22:58

speed at the moment. Six laps to go.

One, two and three will qualify so

0:22:580:23:05

she really needs to start thinking

about making a move. You can see the

0:23:050:23:09

Canadian also having a thought as

well, moving through on the outside.

0:23:090:23:13

Now they are starting to wind it up

with five to go, Zhou Yang on the

0:23:130:23:17

front and Bianca Walter skating

here. Valerie Maltais in third

0:23:170:23:22

place, Maame Biney Borth, Chris

Davis, trying to go on the inside of

0:23:220:23:25

Maame Biney now, a bit of a gap back

to them from the front three, Zhou

0:23:250:23:30

Yang staying out of trouble, the

Olympic champion on the front.

0:23:300:23:33

Valerie Maltais in second place,

then Walter and now Christie starts

0:23:330:23:37

to show some of her speed that we

know she has got in her legs.

0:23:370:23:41

Christie around the outside, draws

up level with the Olympic champion

0:23:410:23:45

from China, and Elise Christie

swooping around at the bell, into

0:23:450:23:50

first place. Much more like it from

the world champion. Elise Christie

0:23:500:23:54

now can ease off a little bit. She

knows she is going through. That was

0:23:540:23:59

a tremendous return to the ice after

what happened the other day, safely

0:23:590:24:02

through to the semifinal, Elise

Christie of Great Britain.

0:24:020:24:07

Here we go, Elise Christie needs to

finish in the first two to get into

0:24:250:24:28

the Olympic final.

The question is,

what will she do? Wilshere that the

0:24:280:24:35

same tactics as he did in the first

round? Not doing very much, leaving

0:24:350:24:39

it for a final burst of speed at the

end? I'm fairly convinced, looking

0:24:390:24:43

up the field, there's no real

specialist 1500 metres skaters in

0:24:430:24:46

the race -- looking at. That is

probably the tactics, the race plan,

0:24:460:24:52

what she will adapt to. Choi

Minjeong sat comfortably behind

0:24:520:24:57

Christie in fifth place, Christie in

fourth, with China one and two.

In

0:24:570:25:02

the first race of the day, Christie

was confident enough in her speed to

0:25:020:25:08

bide her time early on in the laps

which is what she has done initially

0:25:080:25:12

year, just moving up a little bit

now, moving in front of Valerie

0:25:120:25:16

Maltais into second place, we have

Li Jinyu and Chu-Young of China at

0:25:160:25:22

the front at the moment with

Christie in third. She has got to

0:25:220:25:26

finish in the first two, here. Just

moving into second place behind Li

0:25:260:25:31

Jinyu, the world bronze medallist in

the junior championship last year.

0:25:310:25:34

Type up the front, not much room,

the two Chinese athletes dominating.

0:25:340:25:41

-- tight at the front. Seven to go.

Christie skating Neisse lines going

0:25:410:25:46

into the turn, not going into tight

and not getting squeezed on the

0:25:460:25:52

first block, that happened in the

500 and she is still looking very

0:25:520:25:56

comfortable indeed, as Valerie

Maltais tries to attack around the

0:25:560:26:00

outside.

Valerie Maltais moving

round the outside and suddenly

0:26:000:26:02

Christie looking a bit boxed in as

Valerie Maltais making her move, so

0:26:020:26:06

she leaves from Zhou Yang and Li

Jinyu and Christie now with four

0:26:060:26:10

laps to go. At the front, Valerie

Maltais, sixth in Sochi in 2014, got

0:26:100:26:16

a bit of a gap, she's going for a

longer one. Zhou Yang is there and

0:26:160:26:21

Christie has work to do now. Choi

Minjeong comes around the outside,

0:26:210:26:26

towards the front. Christie comes

through the inside. Good move from

0:26:260:26:29

her, two laps to go, Christie and

join it and neck in second, Christie

0:26:290:26:34

a bit patient, then, she does not

want to crash. Now the race is on as

0:26:340:26:38

they take the Bell, Christie in

third place, Choi Minjeong leads the

0:26:380:26:42

way and it is between Zhou Yang and

Christie now as they come round the

0:26:420:26:45

final bend and they both crash!

Christie has crashed again now in

0:26:450:26:49

the semifinal, right on the final

bend, yet again, she ends up in a

0:26:490:26:54

distraught heap on the floor, she

was almost there, she was almost

0:26:540:26:59

about to qualify, she could see the

line in front of her and once more,

0:26:590:27:07

Elise Christie, this time, tangling

with one of the Chinese athletes,

0:27:070:27:09

ends up on the deck against the

padding at the side of the track.

0:27:090:27:15

Choi Minjeong qualifies first, Petra

Jaszapati of hungry in second place.

0:27:150:27:22

Zhou Yang, the defending Olympic

champion was third. Valerie Maltais

0:27:220:27:26

was fourth, Li Jinyu this and

unfortunately and sadly from a

0:27:260:27:31

British perspective, Elise Christie

is on the ground and has crossed the

0:27:310:27:36

line.

We know she has been taken to

hospital and has gone for a scan, on

0:27:360:27:41

what, we don't know. From where you

were sitting, how did it look?

0:27:410:27:46

what, we don't know. From where you

were sitting, how did it look?

The

0:27:460:27:47

penalty was right but she gave it

our best shot. I was quite concerned

0:27:470:27:50

with whether or not she would have

had a cut on her right ankle, on the

0:27:500:27:54

inside of the right ankle. Whether

it is broken or whether she is cut,

0:27:540:27:59

we will have to wait and see.

She

went to hospital and had an x-ray

0:27:590:28:04

and she is fine, there is no

0:28:040:28:10

and she is fine, there is no bone

hurting so she said. Does she think

0:28:100:28:12

she will race on Tuesday. Hopefully,

we will see.

0:28:120:28:17

And incredibly distressing day and

you watched it all unfold. The good

0:28:170:28:22

news is Elise Christie is all right,

no bones broken, clean x-rays but

0:28:220:28:25

the damage to her confidence, the

damage to her dreams at everything,

0:28:250:28:30

really, is extreme.

Yes, it is going

to be tough for her to turn around,

0:28:300:28:34

the way it has unfolded for her so

far. Obviously, she does not have

0:28:340:28:38

any broken bones and hopefully her

ankle is OK because there can be

0:28:380:28:42

other problems there but fingers

crossed. You don't get stretchered

0:28:420:28:46

off for nothing but she has got a

medical team and they will all be

0:28:460:28:52

running around to make sure they get

her fit for Tuesday.

Hugely

0:28:520:28:55

upsetting for you to see this and

for Elise

0:28:550:28:58

upsetting for you to see this and

for Elise, who had pinned so much on

0:28:580:29:00

getting the Olympics right this time

around.

I think what you are seeing

0:29:000:29:04

is a mixture of her being in pain

and hurting herself but also, just

0:29:040:29:09

the utter devastation. You can see

it flashed before your eyes very

0:29:090:29:12

quickly and you just see yourself

losing it.

She was within sight of

0:29:120:29:17

the finish line, this is the very

last bend.

The very last corner and

0:29:170:29:21

it is super quick and she's just

coming out of the corner, very close

0:29:210:29:25

to the barrier. She fell and hit the

pads with her feet which is quite a

0:29:250:29:29

dangerous way to full and she did

not have enough time to turn around

0:29:290:29:32

and take a body impact so she went

in the first, which to hold your

0:29:320:29:36

ankle strong is quite difficult.

From a tactical point of view, what

0:29:360:29:41

did you do want to get herself in

that position?

The race was pretty

0:29:410:29:45

good, she was in good position the

whole race, maybe a bit too relaxed.

0:29:450:29:50

I don't want to speak out of turn

but she did not quite seem up for it

0:29:500:29:54

enough. She was very confident and

may be trying to hold a bit back,

0:29:540:30:00

just expecting kick to get through

to the final because on paper, she

0:30:000:30:04

definitely should but she left

herself a lot to do in the last lap.

0:30:040:30:06

As it happened, Choi Minjeong went

ahead and won the final pretty

0:30:060:30:11

impressively and actually, Li Jinyu

who had been involved in the crash

0:30:110:30:18

took the medal so it was a hot

semifinal. Desperately disappointing

0:30:180:30:22

and we hope she will recover but to

be honest, it would not be the

0:30:220:30:25

biggest shock if she is not able to

skate on Tuesday but we will find

0:30:250:30:29

out nearer the time.

0:30:290:30:33

Some sports are firmly

in the science department and others

0:30:330:30:35

are way more about art.

0:30:350:30:36

Ski slopestyle is in the arty bag.

0:30:360:30:38

It's about perforamance and pizazz

and this is only the second time

0:30:380:30:41

it's been included in the Olympics,

but in Katie Summerhayes

0:30:410:30:43

and Izzy Atkin, Britain had two

chances at a medal on skis -

0:30:430:30:46

a rare thing indeed.

0:30:460:30:49

Take a pinch of attitude, a slice of

style, a large portion of air, with

0:30:530:31:00

a handful of ski. Give it all a

whirl in the mix around there you

0:31:000:31:08

have it, the Atkins diet. Izzy has

been regularly dining out on the

0:31:080:31:14

podium, taking a silver at the X

Games last month. Katie Summerhayes

0:31:140:31:17

is about to drop in. We've got a

great crew of British supporters

0:31:170:31:22

here today for both the goals.

Before we get too excited, they have

0:31:220:31:27

to qualify through to that final.

Izzy 's first run didn't go

0:31:270:31:35

according to plan but she dished up

a superb second helping which saw

0:31:350:31:39

her qualify in fourth place. Katie

has been struggling with an ankle

0:31:390:31:42

injury but her runs have all the

ingredients to make the finals. She

0:31:420:31:46

was incredibly smooth on the rail

section and made it through in tenth

0:31:460:31:52

position. Qualifying also served up

a surprise, as the reigning Olympic

0:31:520:31:56

champion, Dara Howell, was unable to

secure a spot on the menu for the

0:31:560:32:04

final. Yes, happy? Because that was

a bit stressful.

Yeah, I was.

And

0:32:040:32:09

you, both of you through.

The format

was very simple, three runs, the

0:32:090:32:15

best run will count. Fifth place

qualifier Matilda Rowe. Really nice.

0:32:150:32:21

Still very technical. Beautiful.

A

silky 900.

It was, very smooth.

0:32:210:32:31

First of the double corks. There it

is. I don't think it will be any

0:32:310:32:41

surprise to see her move into the --

Dizzy Mathilde Gremaud oh move into

0:32:410:32:46

the top spot.

Sarah Hoefflin put

down a strong run and was sitting in

0:32:460:32:54

silver medal position after one run.

Katie and Izzy both landed their

0:32:540:32:59

runs but had room for improvement

going into run two.

Katie

0:32:590:33:05

Summerhayes, Sheffield steel, she's

been told by the GB physio it may

0:33:050:33:08

not be in her best interests to

ride. Her ankle is giving her a lot

0:33:080:33:13

of pain. And there is the hundred

and 50 out, that's nice.

Beautiful.

0:33:130:33:26

Really solid rails from Summerhayes.

She's got that slide really nicely,

0:33:260:33:30

she's locked those two together. And

a big 900. She punches that air.

0:33:300:33:38

Come on, Katie Summerhayes!

0:33:380:33:43

Come on, Katie Summerhayes! 71.4.

Yeah, a little nod overhead there.

0:33:440:33:47

It pushes her rent to fourth

position. Next to drop, Isabel

0:33:470:33:51

Atkin.

0:33:510:33:58

Atkin. Lovely 450 off.

Really nice.

The seven, landed much cleaner than

0:33:580:34:03

last time.

Yeah, the judges looking

for spins in different directions.

0:34:030:34:08

The nine is clean.

Left side, right

side spins, now switch. 900 on the

0:34:080:34:17

bottom job.

It's very, very tidy.

79.4. Izzy Atkin moves into the

0:34:170:34:26

third and final runs in bronze medal

position.

At the end of the second

0:34:260:34:31

runs none of the latest skiers had

bettered Izzy's score and she

0:34:310:34:35

remained in third. Sarah Hoefflin

was in second position and Mathilde

0:34:350:34:42

Gremaud oh in first.

He's looked

this good on the rails every single

0:34:420:34:47

time but it's the last jump that has

eluded her. The focus and the

0:34:470:34:54

pressure boils down to the kickers.

Lovely nine on the first hit.

Really

0:34:540:35:01

nice.

0:35:010:35:07

nice.

She's got that one.

Yeah.

Can

she hold it together when it

0:35:070:35:12

matters? She's gone big. She can,

and very, very clean run. 82. --

0:35:120:35:24

81.2. She bumps Izzy Atkin down to

fourth. Sarah Hoefflin has the style

0:35:240:35:36

and technicality to take the top

spot. Very tidy. Maybe not the

0:35:360:35:40

cleanest rail jumps but there were

no mistakes there.

0:35:400:35:44

Lovely style. Lovely style.

Big

grab, really snatching up the 1080.

0:35:470:36:00

Was it 900? I got a little bit lost.

And gets it round!

Sarah Hoefflin,

0:36:000:36:07

very, very strong run there.

0:36:070:36:13

very, very strong run there. 91.2,

into gold medal position.

Katie

0:36:160:36:19

Summerhayes was clearly struggling

with an injured ankle and wasn't

0:36:190:36:23

able to improve on her second run.

Isabel Atkin, what has she got in

0:36:230:36:28

her run? Pat Sharples, just said

you're an absolute boss, your skiing

0:36:280:36:35

amazing.

Clean as, that's the

advice, just clean this run up. The

0:36:350:36:42

biggest run of her life starts now.

Mechanical with the 450. Laid it

0:36:420:36:48

down beautifully. Locks that in so

beautifully, because she comes up

0:36:480:36:56

from the side and tilt the skis on

to it.

Yeah.

Oh, and the gap over.

0:36:560:37:02

This money is flowing for her now.

Dare I say it, the best rails we've

0:37:020:37:11

seen from her. The 720 years there.

Now, come on, Izzy Atkin. 900 is

0:37:110:37:18

their! Final jump.

0:37:180:37:23

I'll! And its super-clean.

Bigger

and cleaner run from Izzy, that

0:37:240:37:31

might bump her back into the medals.

That third-place! 84.6, so with

0:37:310:37:39

three skiers left to drop Izzy Atkin

is in bronze medal position.

0:37:390:37:44

Norway's Joanna Killy put down a

solid run which pushed Katie into

0:37:440:37:48

seventh position but it didn't score

highly enough to trouble Izzy. Just

0:37:480:37:53

two skiers stood between her and a

bronze medal.

So two skiers left to

0:37:530:38:00

drop. Tyrol fast at Christiansen,

currently on a 24 sheet, but very

0:38:000:38:04

clean runs down but hasn't managed

to put a last trick down. Can she

0:38:040:38:11

make amends now? The second of the

Norwegians.

Really high, that rail.

0:38:110:38:18

You don't get a sense of how high it

is from that camera angle. A big

0:38:180:38:25

leap on through the kink.

Winds up

last jump. It's short. Really short.

0:38:250:38:31

Oh! Very difficult to call and Izzy

Atkin can't watch.

No, she's gone.

0:38:310:38:41

Two scores away from a bronze medal.

60.4, now only one score away from a

0:38:410:38:48

bronze medal with the first place

qualifier Emma Dahlstrom yet to

0:38:480:38:52

drop. She looked so relaxed in

qualifying but the pressure is

0:38:520:38:58

telling now on the third and final

run. She's yet to land a run. Can

0:38:580:39:02

she do it now, when it counts? The

fourth hundred and 50 off exactly

0:39:020:39:07

the same as Izzy Atkin. -- the 450

off exactly the same as Izzy Atkin.

0:39:070:39:16

Oh no! She's down. And that, ladies

and gentlemen, confirms the medals.

0:39:160:39:27

Great Britain's Izzy Atkin takes a

bronze. Mathilde Gremaud Hollande

0:39:270:39:33

Sarah Hoefflin make it a 1-2-macro

in silver and for Switzerland.

0:39:330:39:38

Sarah Hoefflin make it a 1-2-macro

in silver and for Switzerland.

So

0:39:380:39:39

you realise you are the first on

skis to have done this.

Yeah, that's

0:39:390:39:44

amazing. It definitely hasn't

settled in yet, but I'm really proud

0:39:440:39:48

and really happy to be part of Rat

Team GB.

She's a bit of a

0:39:480:39:57

perfectionist, she tried to put all

her tricks as clean as possible. She

0:39:570:40:00

came to the last run, it was

perfect.

We have Izzy's parents and

0:40:000:40:06

sister withers. Firstly how are you

feeling right now?

Very happy, very

0:40:060:40:11

happy, and a little bit in shock,

but very happy.

We weren't quite

0:40:110:40:16

expecting her to medal, frankly.

Hoping that it might be possible, so

0:40:160:40:20

obviously were extraordinarily

delighted. Slowly,

0:40:200:40:32

slowly sinking in.

How is this, to

have two girls in the top ten and a

0:40:380:40:42

medal in ski slopestyle, for the

first time ever?

You know, in lots

0:40:420:40:45

of ways it was something I would

have dreamt that wouldn't have --

0:40:450:40:48

that would have been a best case

scenario. I was like, no, just keep

0:40:480:40:51

your eye on the ball.

How might you

celebrate?

Karaoke.

What's your Song

0:40:510:40:54

of choice?

Usually Katy Perry, one

of her songs.

Massive

0:40:540:40:57

congratulations. High fives that.

They are so cool, those slopestyle

0:40:570:41:03

skiers, aren't they?

Yeah,

definitely.

How much will that do

0:41:030:41:07

for the uptake of kids wanting to do

tricks in this country?

It's huge.

0:41:070:41:13

80% of these freestyle athletes who

are dominating came from an

0:41:130:41:16

artificial snow background so they

practice on these slopes they have.

0:41:160:41:20

There are six snow domes in them

with rails in them and they do

0:41:200:41:26

nights every week so you can try.

Extended highlights from about six

0:41:260:41:30

that -- from about 8:30pm. This is

the kind of thing you can expect,

0:41:300:41:35

because it doesn't always go to

plan. But when the jobs come off

0:41:350:41:39

there are extraordinary and

particularly when they going

0:41:390:41:41

backwards to a job, how difficult is

that?

It's amazing, they are going

0:41:410:41:46

in switch so they have the speed but

have to look over their shoulder to

0:41:460:41:49

see where they are going and switch

in the yeah but it increases the

0:41:490:41:53

degree of difficulty which is what

we want to see.

You do have to have

0:41:530:41:58

extreme bounce ability. The bronze

meant three medals were one on one

0:41:580:42:04

day in the Winter Olympics for the

British team first time ever.

0:42:040:42:12

Mr T has been on the line,

demanding we show some curling.

0:42:180:42:21

So here's Paddy with

the curling cognizance.

0:42:210:42:24

The slow motion tension of the

curling arena is growing day by day.

0:42:290:42:34

The semifinals are rolling into

view. After a day off the ice at

0:42:340:42:38

tricky day Ford team your head

against Denmark. Eve and the gang

0:42:380:42:44

seemed rusty until end six.

A nice

throw, what we are looking for.

The

0:42:440:42:50

key was restricting the Danes to one

the end. The chance to score.

Eve

0:42:500:42:57

Muirhead looks as though she's done

the job there. Taps that one out of

0:42:570:43:01

the house.

It finished 7-6 but Korea

will be tougher. It was 4-4 going

0:43:010:43:08

into end nine. Eve Muirhead was

aiming to take one here, but the

0:43:080:43:12

early frantic sweeping was a bad

sign.

Wow, wow, wow.

That's a big

0:43:120:43:19

disappointment.

Two down, want to

go, big trouble and the final

0:43:190:43:24

mistake was a popular one in the

gang number arena.

A poor day at the

0:43:240:43:30

office for the GB team.

They played

well, we have to regroup and come

0:43:300:43:36

back tomorrow.

That left GB joint

fourth and with work to do, only the

0:43:360:43:40

top four make the semis. Kyle Smith

also facing Korea but the hosts were

0:43:400:43:45

bottom in the men's competition. The

time to be scoring, whatever you do,

0:43:450:43:52

don't give your opponents two.

Oh,

no. It was a tough situation and

0:43:520:43:57

it's becoming incredibly

challenging.

That mistake was still

0:43:570:44:02

fresh when a team ranked ten places

below GB made things really

0:44:020:44:05

embarrassing.

Looking very good.

Well, that's 34 Korea. I'm not sure

0:44:050:44:13

we'll gone much further here.

Britain shook hands and heads off to

0:44:130:44:17

end nine. Kyle Smith and go down

insects, so what happened?

We

0:44:170:44:21

started out well just a few key

misses let the game away from us to

0:44:210:44:26

be honest. Where disappointed.

0:44:260:44:35

It's OK, it's not live.

Two, heh.

Yes.

Cheers.

0:44:440:44:58

That famous line, it is OK, it is

not live but it still might get into

0:44:590:45:05

24 and if you pose beings with your

baby...

I'm a are pushy mum!

0:45:050:45:11

Think of the biggest sporting star

in this country and then times

0:45:110:45:14

the adoration and the attention

by a hundred, and you get close

0:45:140:45:17

to how much figure skater

Yazuru Hanyu is revered in Japan.

0:45:170:45:20

The defending champion set

a new Olympic record

0:45:200:45:21

in the short programme.

0:45:210:45:22

Now for the free programme

to decide the men's singles.

0:45:220:45:26

Now for the free programme

to decide the men's singles.

0:45:260:45:28

The men's final was destined to be

one for the history books and the

0:45:280:45:31

arc of this would not be

disappointed.

After a disastrous

0:45:310:45:36

short programme, America's true king

of the quads, Nathan Chen, finally

0:45:360:45:40

came out to play, firing on all

cylinders, he delivered an

0:45:400:45:45

unprecedented six quad jumps in a

single performance, moving him up

0:45:450:45:49

from 17th placed a bet.

History has

been made, six quadruple jumps.

0:45:490:45:56

Place to fifth. Vincent Zhou poll of

five quads which put him into the

0:45:560:46:03

top six.

Five quads, if we had not

seen six from Nathan Chen, we would

0:46:030:46:07

be up out of our seats, the

brilliance is making us complacent.

0:46:070:46:11

Next up, China's Jin Boyang, who

gave a solid if safe performance.

0:46:110:46:18

Triple toe loop and down, completely

off kilter on the take-off. Does not

0:46:180:46:23

inspire as an overall performance.

Going Galactic, Jin Boyang is

0:46:230:46:29

rocketing into the medals for now.

But the best skaters were still to

0:46:290:46:34

come. So do the man with the Golden

Belt, 20 Yuzuru Hanyu, bidding to

0:46:340:46:41

become the first skater to retain

the Olympic title since 1952. The

0:46:410:46:47

darling of the Japanese super fans,

he had history in his gloved hands.

0:46:470:46:55

Second jump is the quadruple

Salchow.

Lee has got it.

0:46:550:47:03

Salchow.

Lee has got it.

Exquisite

quadruple toe loop.

There were

0:47:040:47:06

worries about his ankle injury and a

couple of stumbles to free the

0:47:060:47:09

nerves but his lead after the short

programme and a total of four quads

0:47:090:47:15

kept him out of reach.

He is

unearthly, enchant it out on the

0:47:150:47:21

ice!

Gold may have been impossible

for Fernandez of Spain but he was

0:47:210:47:26

hoping for a first Olympic medal at

his final Games.

The performance is

0:47:260:47:31

glorious and he is still at home out

there and he delivers.

Last but by

0:47:310:47:37

no may -- no means least was Yuzuru

Hanyu's young team-mate Shoma Uno,

0:47:370:47:41

who had a chance to take a place on

the podium and a possible Japanese

0:47:410:47:44

one-two.

Down on the first of his

quads, the loop.

Could that be the

0:47:440:47:51

medal gone?

Quadruple toe loop,

double toe loop, not the best

0:47:510:47:57

landing on the double.

It is a

Japanese one-two, and have the

0:47:570:48:05

Fernandez will have to settle for

the bronze. -- Javier Fernandez.

0:48:050:48:09

History made.

Back-to-back Olympic

titles.

Figure skating is so

0:48:090:48:16

beautiful and you can see it on BBC

Four.

0:48:160:48:21

If you could take up another winter

sport now, what would it be?

0:48:210:48:25

I would need to find some friends

but ice hockey.

Getting lots of cool

0:48:250:48:32

points.

Alex the albatross, ski

jumping.

You would go a long way. We

0:48:320:48:39

have had two ski jumping

competitions. One to go at visit it

0:48:390:48:42

is the turn of the men on the large

hill think about Alex.

0:48:420:48:49

# Got to fly

# You've got to fly. #

0:48:490:48:56

Ski jumping is a sport of great

distances and yet tiny margins,

0:48:560:49:01

inches and twitches matter. You

score points for how far you jump,

0:49:010:49:04

of course, but also for how you do

it, with marks awarded for style. In

0:49:040:49:12

the large hill competition, legend

Debbie Lieber, Switzerland's Simon

0:49:120:49:15

the large hill competition, legend

Debbie Lieber, Switzerland's Simon

0:49:150:49:15

Ammann never really took off this

time. Poland's reigning champion

0:49:150:49:19

Kamil Stoch lead after the first but

look out for Robert Johansson. You

0:49:190:49:23

can hardly miss him, after all, he

has the whiskers of a flying ace. We

0:49:230:49:28

join him before his second and final

jump. Over to Ollie Williams.

0:49:280:49:33

COMMENTATOR: Here it is, the

moustache belt around the world,

0:49:330:49:38

Robert Johansson. He says the

aerodynamics of fine, it might have

0:49:380:49:43

been planning cheek but it is what

is outside the cheek that counts. It

0:49:430:49:46

is long but he's a bit disappointed,

he wanted a few more metres. If ever

0:49:460:49:51

anyone looked like they should be

flying through the air for a living,

0:49:510:49:54

it is Robert Johansson. He's in

first, for now. 275.3. It is enough

0:49:540:50:01

when added to his first-round score

by two marks. Here is last week's

0:50:010:50:08

Olympic champion, Andreas Wellinger.

0:50:080:50:16

Oh, it's good! It's good from

Andreas Wellinger! 142 metres. Wow!

0:50:170:50:25

He has the normal Hill gold. Surely

he is going into the large hill

0:50:250:50:31

lead? He is! 282.3. First place

again for Andreas Wellinger. One

0:50:310:50:38

left to jump. The 2014 Olympic

champion, Poland's Kamil Stoch.

0:50:380:50:47

Hearts in mouths.

0:50:470:50:55

Oh, it's long again! Will that be

enough to deprive Andreas Wellinger

0:50:560:51:03

of the double? 136.5 so it is backed

by about five metres from Andreas

0:51:030:51:10

Wellinger's second jump. If he was

not wearing gloves one inch thick,

0:51:100:51:15

he would be cheering through his

nails. It is gold, gold for Kamil

0:51:150:51:20

Stoch!

0:51:200:51:26

Stoch! 285.7, a three point, four

point gap, the judges just love the

0:51:260:51:30

way this man jumps, and Kamil Stoch

wins gold again.

0:51:300:51:38

Kamil Stoch lead to the defence of

his title, his third Olympic gold,

0:51:380:51:42

Germany's Andreas Wellinger was

second and bronze number two at

0:51:420:51:45

these games for that man Robert

Johansson.

0:51:450:51:49

The great news for Alex is that ski

jumpers go on and on.

0:51:510:51:55

Noriaki Kasai finished 33rd

at his eighth Olympics and he's

0:51:550:51:57

still got the team event to come,

plus he says he'll keep

0:51:570:52:00

going beyond his 50th birthday.

0:52:000:52:01

I'll nip out and get my skis on.

Exactly, you are nowhere near.

0:52:010:52:05

Now to women's super-G.

0:52:050:52:06

After the downhill, this

is the fastest Alpine discipline,

0:52:060:52:08

so cue Lindsey Vonn and cue Chemmy.

0:52:080:52:11

Thanks, Clare.

0:52:130:52:15

Well, Lindsey Vonn was first

out of the start hut.

0:52:150:52:21

She

out of the start hut.

0:52:210:52:21

She was

out of the start hut.

0:52:210:52:21

She was flying.

out of the start hut.

0:52:210:52:23

Until a huge mistake on the lower

part of the course meant her time

0:52:230:52:26

was within reach for the rest

of the field.

0:52:260:52:29

That could ruin her chance of a

medal.

0:52:290:52:31

Italian Johanna Schnarf came

to South Korea in good form

0:52:310:52:33

after a second place in the last

super-g before the Games.

0:52:330:52:36

She put down a solid

run to take the lead.

0:52:360:52:38

Another favourite for a podium

place was Lara Gut.

0:52:380:52:41

The Swiss skier has focused

on super-g this season and it showed

0:52:410:52:43

as she took the lead

after a smooth run.

0:52:430:52:46

Tina Weirather from Liechtenstein

was looking for her

0:52:460:52:48

first Olympic medal.

0:52:480:52:52

She put in a technically sound run

to beat her good friend Gut by one

0:52:520:52:55

hundredth of a second

and take the lead.

0:52:550:52:57

Reigning Olympic super-g

Champion Anna Veith got off

0:52:570:53:02

to a fast start and didn't let up

as she looked to defend her title.

0:53:020:53:06

And it looked as though she'd done

just that as she edged out Weirather

0:53:060:53:09

by a tenth of a second.

0:53:090:53:12

But late starter and World

Champion snowboarder

0:53:120:53:15

Esther Ledecka had other ideas.

0:53:150:53:21

Skiing from bib number 26,

and on borrowed skis,

0:53:210:53:24

the Czech put down the run

of her life to take the gold by just

0:53:240:53:27

one hundredth of a second

to complete one of the biggest

0:53:270:53:30

shocks in Winter Olympic history.

0:53:300:53:33

She's done it!

0:53:330:53:35

It's a result that

shocked the skiing world,

0:53:350:53:37

and Ester Ledecka herself!

0:53:370:53:39

You are the winner.

No!

You are!

0:53:390:53:46

She did not

0:53:460:53:47

She did not believe or think she

could win and she did not see the

0:53:470:53:50

scoreboard and she was so unprepared

for success that when she turned up

0:53:500:53:53

to the press conference, she was

still wearing goggles.

She was upset

0:53:530:53:56

the other girls had make-up in the

bag because they expected to win and

0:53:560:54:00

he did not have any make up so she

wore the goggles. It was not a

0:54:000:54:04

publicity stunt, she just felt

self-conscious.

Agger was really

0:54:040:54:07

cross she was missing snowboard

training.

She was like, all the

0:54:070:54:13

media is great but I'm missing three

snowboard training runs the next

0:54:130:54:16

week. Two very different skills but

she is managing to excel at both

0:54:160:54:20

which we all love and even Lindsey

Vonn said it is really tough for her

0:54:200:54:23

because she is only bigoted one

thing and she was beaten.

I want to

0:54:230:54:27

see her reaction to get because I'm

not ever seen a world champion who

0:54:270:54:30

is so nonplussed.

No!

You won.

She

was like that for about two minutes,

0:54:300:54:41

going no, it can't have happened.

She thought something was wrong with

0:54:410:54:45

a time in the Olympic Games.

Nothing

is going to be broken!

0:54:450:54:48

Here's Paddy Gearey with the best

of the rest from Pyeongchang.

0:54:480:54:51

Here's Paddy Gearey with the best

of the rest from Pyeongchang.

0:54:510:54:52

Last lap of the final of the 1000

metres short track speed skating,

0:54:520:54:56

one of those wiped out by cruel

chance, Elise Christie's boyfriend,

0:54:560:55:02

Shaolin Sandor Liu, Canadian Samuel

Girard stayed clear to win. Always a

0:55:020:55:06

bit of spice when the Russians and

Americans play ice hockey, Olympic

0:55:060:55:10

Athletes from Russia are not

officially representing their

0:55:100:55:12

nation, of course, but they are

officially in the quarterfinals

0:55:120:55:15

after beating the USA 4-0. Few

Winter Olympians have been as much

0:55:150:55:19

in six months as Britain's Lloyd

Wallace. In August, he was in a coma

0:55:190:55:25

after a skiing accident. Today, he

competed in the men's aerials, and

0:55:250:55:28

taking part for him was a remarkable

victory. Over to the women's 12.5 K

0:55:280:55:36

mass. Biathlon and from the mass

start to the finish, Slovakia's

0:55:360:55:39

Anastasiya Kuzmina was winning, her

third middle of the games, but when

0:55:390:55:41

it comes to medals, nobody beats

Magic Marit Bjoergen who powered no

0:55:410:55:46

way to go in the five kilometre

relay, her third winter in a big

0:55:460:55:50

medal, equalling the record, one

more race for her to go, can the

0:55:500:55:53

iron Lady make history?

0:55:530:55:56

After the greatest day in British

Winter Olympic history, we are in 16

0:55:560:56:00

spot, just below Belarus with one

gold and three bronze medals, all

0:56:000:56:04

the gold medals won by different

countries today, none of them by

0:56:040:56:07

Germany but they stay top. Let's go

off beast. -- off

0:56:070:56:14

piste. And start with Lizzy Yarnold

on Instagram, the double Olympic

0:56:140:56:20

champion, won the Olympics, again.

She's all about inspiring little

0:56:200:56:23

girls and it is working, check out

this home-made podium with the dog

0:56:230:56:26

and the dolly getting a medal as

well. Ice hockey is the choice of

0:56:260:56:31

sport to be Sidebottom house.

Something is going to get broken.

0:56:310:56:34

This is Jack and his superheroes in

Bobsleigh action. This little girl

0:56:340:56:38

has found new love of housework

through curling. From prop

0:56:380:56:42

improvisation, here is Hannah

practising the skeleton indoors on

0:56:420:56:47

her car seat. That is really good,

clever. Ross taking the skeleton at

0:56:470:56:53

the top of the Kenna Mountain is.

This was said to you. We reckon

0:56:530:56:59

Alfie the dog has the speed to get

gold. Here he comes!

Amazing!

These

0:56:590:57:07

boys are enjoying watching. I think

it is a great shame... And happy Mac

0:57:070:57:14

team Reynolds prove that speed

skating around the kitchen table is

0:57:140:57:16

not any easier than it is on the

eyes. Ouch! And what about this four

0:57:160:57:23

double luge training, Beijing 2022?

Here they come. Red hot, ice-cold.

0:57:230:57:36

First up men's ski jump.

0:57:360:57:38

As we know, it's a long way down

from the top and it's a hard fall.

0:57:380:57:42

Just got to make sure

you get up and try again

0:57:420:57:45

like Italian Davide Bresadola.

0:57:450:57:51

No, it's not The Stig.

0:57:510:57:54

It's Latvian Lelde Preiedulena.

0:57:540:57:56

We know it's cold in Korea,

but this has got to hurt.

0:57:560:58:02

Next, it's women's slopestyle.

0:58:020:58:05

It's always good to go big,

0:58:050:58:08

but maybe

sometimes not too big.

0:58:080:58:10

Everything in moderation.

0:58:100:58:16

And finally, it's always the little

things in life that tickle,

0:58:160:58:19

especially our very own Ed Leigh.

0:58:190:58:26

I'm sorry, juniors!

We have lost Ed,

everyone!

-- a genius.

She was

0:58:260:58:36

prepared with a forehand with was

brilliant.

0:58:360:58:38

prepared with a forehand with was

brilliant.

0:58:380:58:40

Look who else was prepared for an

Olympic gold medal.

I promised that

0:58:400:58:45

if Lizzy Yarnold one gold, I would

start the toga party and on

0:58:450:58:47

delivering even though I be a very

silly.

What chances of another gold

0:58:470:58:51

medal in the early hours? Radradra

James Woods has been amazing in

0:58:510:58:54

training, we know he's completely

comfortable, and Pat is excited we

0:58:540:59:01

are behind him. Would you wear the

toga again if he wins a gold medal?

0:59:010:59:05

I can't do it every medal, I'm

confident but I'm behind the team.

0:59:050:59:10

You are going out to South Korea.

Are not wearing this in -20, though.

0:59:100:59:14

I think that would be best. Thank

you to all of you, we will be back

0:59:140:59:19

at 70 with another round-up of all

of the action. The winter wonders,

0:59:190:59:24

but I suspect that nothing can beat

today because today was the day that

0:59:240:59:28

history was made, the first British

double Olympic champion, the first

0:59:280:59:31

time we have won more than one medal

and the first time Chemmy Alcott has

0:59:310:59:34

appeared in a toga on TV. Good

night.

0:59:340:59:38

Great Britain's Izzy Atkin takes a

bronze.

Laura Deas goes next for

0:59:430:59:49

Great Britain. Laura Deas has done

all she can. Will it be enough?

0:59:490:59:57

Lizzy Yarnold next. The Olympic

champion, can she make history?

0:59:571:00:01

Lizzy Yarnold wins gold again!

1:00:011:00:05

Clare Balding presents highlights from the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. Day eight is the busiest day of the lot with nine golds up for grabs, and Team GB are hoping for another 'Super Saturday', with defending Olympic skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold and triple world champion short track skater Elise Christie both going for medals. Also targeting a place on the podium are British freestyle skiers Katie Summerhayes and Izzy Atkin.
