Good morning from Pyeongchang where

there is a kick site meant up at the

0:01:150:01:19

Alpine Centre for the women's

downhill. -- there is big

0:01:190:01:25

excitement. It includes one of the

greatest women's skier of all time.

0:01:250:01:29

After missing Sochi four years ago,

Lindsey Vonn is back and aiming to

0:01:290:01:35

maintain the culture you one ages

ago in what she says is 99.9% her

0:01:350:01:44

last Olympics. We will bring you all

of the action and here is what is

0:01:440:01:47

coming up.

A win for team dismissed against the

0:01:470:01:53

USA would see them safely into the

semifinals. -- team Smith. We will

0:01:530:01:58

be back to see the conclusion of

that match. Women's downhill day,

0:01:580:02:02

the bravest and fastest on skis take

to the mountain. And we will show

0:02:020:02:10

you what happens in one of the most

entertaining events, the ski cross.

0:02:100:02:15

And quarterfinal action from men's

ice hockey, with the Olympic

0:02:150:02:19

Athletes from Russia taking on

Norway.

0:02:190:02:22

Straight to the Curling Centre where

it it is a must win match for Great

0:02:220:02:30

Britain's rink, taking on the USA.

The win will guarantee their place

0:02:300:02:33

in the play-off matches. Let's join

Steve Cram and Jackie Lockhart.

0:02:330:02:38

This one is tied up 2-2, and John

Shuster, the US skip, looking at

0:02:410:02:48

another tricky situation that Kyle

Smith, the British skip, has put him

0:02:480:02:52

into. He has just drawn around the

yellow, so close to catching the

0:02:520:02:58

guard around the top. USA got off to

a better start than Great Britain

0:02:580:03:07

picking up two. Great Britain held

to one in the second, managed to

0:03:070:03:10

steal in the third, a few mistakes

from the United States. They then

0:03:100:03:14

retained the hammer into the fourth

end, but Britain would love to force

0:03:140:03:20

the one if they could. That last

shot, that just scraped by. It does

0:03:200:03:27

give Shuster a problem, it has

already been the draw shot, the won

0:03:270:03:35

he has been misjudging.

It's right

in behind and it's left John

0:03:350:03:46

in behind and it's left John Shuster

the big dilemma, does he try and get

0:03:470:03:48

it back into it? He wants to create

a two here.

He thinks he can get his

0:03:480:03:58

two by driving that yellow back into

the red and sitting with his

0:03:580:04:03

shooter.

It depends where he gets

it. He can drive it into the red,

0:04:030:04:08

catch the right-hand side of it that

would take it to the back red but he

0:04:080:04:12

does not want to drive the red into

the backpack. You did hear him

0:04:120:04:16

saying, if he has to take one, he

will take one, but he's trying to do

0:04:160:04:21

the runner back rather than the

guard.

I don't think the draw is

0:04:210:04:24

working for him so he's preferring

this shot, a little bit more risky.

0:04:240:04:28

Missed. Now, where is it ending up?

And other steel for Great Britain.

0:04:280:04:39

The United States in the last two

ends, he's made some odd decisions,

0:04:390:04:42

Shuster does not trust himself to

take the one. He wanted to try and

0:04:420:04:49

manufacturer two, with a different

type of shots, it's a risky shots,

0:04:490:04:55

and missed. So Great Britain now

lead this. Given that Great Britain

0:04:550:05:01

only managed to get one in the

second and lost the hammer, they

0:05:010:05:04

will be delighted to be missed

decision now. The hammer retained by

0:05:040:05:08

the US as they move into the fifth.

So important for Great Britain, very

0:05:080:05:15

straightforward for them, wind of

this, into the semifinals, no

0:05:150:05:18

question. It doesn't matter what

happens elsewhere. If they lose, it

0:05:180:05:26

is likely there will be a tie-break

scenario. There is a combination of

0:05:260:05:30

results that even if they lose, they

will be in the top four. We will go

0:05:300:05:35

through all of that. We will keep an

eye on the other games, Canada art

0:05:350:05:39

leading Denmark, and they can cement

their place with a win there in the

0:05:390:05:44

semifinals. Sweden are getting

beaten by Norway. That doesn't

0:05:440:05:50

affect things that much, Sweden are

already through. The big much to

0:05:500:05:54

keep an eye on from the British

perspective is the one between Korea

0:05:540:05:59

and Japan, tied up 3-3 after four

ends. The best results would be for

0:05:590:06:05

Korea to beat Japan. That would be

for GB. A win is all they will be

0:06:050:06:14

thinking about. So far, so good.

They are playing better than the US,

0:06:140:06:18

who started well, but they've had a

good diva stakes creeping in. I

0:06:180:06:24

think it's John Shuster, -- a good

few mistakes creeping in. I think

0:06:240:06:30

when he is not playing well, they

struggle.

Yes, Kyle is getting the

0:06:300:06:37

shots and putting the pressure on

John Shuster who was not coming out

0:06:370:06:39

with the goods. That last end, he

was trying to be clever. He had to

0:06:390:06:45

make sure his yellow connected with

the red first, but he was greedy and

0:06:450:06:51

drink -- trying to get the roll as

well. They have changed their

0:06:510:07:04

tactics, instead of going front

corner, because we have put a high

0:07:040:07:08

card on, they've decided to come and

find it. The shot high guard. We

0:07:080:07:13

will follow that. Sit on the nose of

it. Just half check it, it would be

0:07:130:07:22

a great shot, don't want to bounce.

Kyle Waddell saying the weight is

0:07:220:07:31

perfect, needs to curl a little

more.

They are coming behind it.

0:07:310:07:39

Want to get attacked in if they can.

Behind the button but almost on the

0:07:390:07:45

centre line, it would be great if it

could force a one here, the US

0:07:450:07:52

picking up one, a decent start for

the first half of this match. Having

0:07:520:07:58

not got out of the traps

particularly well. It wasn't that

0:07:580:08:01

Great Britain didn't play well,

there were two shots, Kyle Smith,

0:08:010:08:05

almost at double takeout, but then

the USA did the same and they had a

0:08:050:08:16

slight advantage. They are just

getting their way to wrong, the US.

0:08:160:08:26

-- there weight wrong.

That's a nice

shot.

Comes in on top of the red.

0:08:260:08:34

They left it completely. He's been a

little bit fortunate there. You

0:08:340:08:39

really want to be, the sweeper

helping it on its way, the last

0:08:390:08:43

little bit.

0:08:430:08:49

little bit. A little bump here, as

Kyle was saying.

0:08:490:08:53

So, just lay it and let your

sweepers to the rest. Don't need to

0:08:580:09:07

pitch too much weight on here.

0:09:070:09:15

Really been well controlled by the

team at the moment. That's a nice

0:09:210:09:26

shot.

Another great shot. I think

Kyle this morning, Kyle Waddell,

0:09:260:09:34

this morning, morning at home! He

has started very well. Cammy has had

0:09:340:09:42

some sweeping to do already today.

Look at fact, just skirts by that

0:09:420:09:49

front yellow. So USA already in a

bit of bother here. Just want to

0:09:490:09:55

remove the card, learned their

lesson from early on. Matt

0:09:550:10:01

Hamilton... Placed second for US.

0:10:010:10:12

Hamilton... Placed second for US. If

you're just waking up to a little

0:10:120:10:14

bit more curling, welcome, getting

ready for work or whatever else the

0:10:140:10:20

day holds for you, the great news is

that Great Britain's women have

0:10:200:10:24

already qualified for the

semifinals, a superb match against

0:10:240:10:28

Canada, putting out the gold medal

contenders, Canada, well, they would

0:10:280:10:34

have been gold medal contenders!

First time that Canada have not been

0:10:340:10:39

in the semifinals, they have always

got a medal in the winning's curling

0:10:390:10:43

competition. So Rachel Holman will

not want that on her CV.

0:10:430:10:46

Unfortunately for her that is what

she will be remembered. Eve

0:10:460:10:52

Muirhead's team superb in the second

half of that match, having trailed

0:10:520:10:56

for much of it early on. They will

now face Sweden in the semifinal.

0:10:560:11:03

Still not quite sure who will be in

the fourth place, there are some

0:11:030:11:07

permutations available. The South

Korean women have been almost

0:11:070:11:13

unstoppable, they top the table. So

they will play the fourth team, when

0:11:130:11:18

the final session is played tonight,

Great Britain not in that session.

0:11:180:11:23

Already through, they are, they can

sit and watch.

0:11:230:11:31

He would have liked to have moved

his yellow to open up that... I'm

0:11:310:11:38

just checking some of the stats,

checking to see the head-to-head

0:11:380:11:43

against Great Britain against USA.

These two teams haven't played each

0:11:430:11:47

other that often. Only twice they've

played each other. Both times Great

0:11:470:11:55

Britain coming out the window. Or

Kyle Smith coming out the winner.

0:11:550:12:03

So, playing wise, the favour has

always fallen to Kyle Smith.

They

0:12:030:12:13

decided to leave that there. Just

going to come up as a decent guard,

0:12:130:12:23

a fair way out.

It has slightly over

cold, though. -- over curled.

Tyler

0:12:230:12:40

George, playing third.

Inch

precision here required.

0:12:400:12:49

That's close, isn't it? Britain

might have second. That I just say

0:13:000:13:09

Canada?

Yes!

I meant USA, they're

not that far apart! Easy mistake to

0:13:090:13:19

make!

0:13:190:13:25

make! We had a much against Canada

at this morning, the women. So the

0:13:250:13:30

USA, that one on the left as you

look at it, laying short, Britain

0:13:300:13:35

may well be second. I think shot

selection, that was one of the

0:13:350:13:43

features of the match with Rachel

Holman this morning, Eve Muirhead,

0:13:430:13:49

not only making the shots, the girls

played very well, and struggled

0:13:490:13:55

early on but got her act together if

the latter stages, but we just saw

0:13:550:14:01

that from John Shuster, the choice

of shots. The hint of desperation

0:14:010:14:08

Canada where feeling, the USA

possibly the same. Great Britain

0:14:080:14:10

know that even if they lose this,

they have a chance of qualifying,

0:14:100:14:14

but for the USA, it's all over.

Maybe that affects your ability to

0:14:140:14:18

think straight.

Yes, a bit of

indecision is coming into play here.

0:14:180:14:28

Great Britain at the moment are

lying two.

0:14:280:14:37

So, when you hear USA saying they

want to burn the stone, they want to

0:14:390:14:45

hit the red and go in behind.

0:14:450:14:49

So, just want to try and hit this

and the rollover, that looks a bit

0:14:540:14:58

straight. It is. You wanted that one

to role

0:14:580:15:07

to role -- you wanted that want to

go to the right. What's happening

0:15:080:15:11

is, the back end of each end,

Britain of forcing the issue at a

0:15:110:15:15

bit now. The USA not able to get the

stones where they want or need them.

0:15:150:15:24

Wade we just want a little role,

0:15:260:15:28

Wade we just want a little role, not

too much, if we can just get it

0:15:280:15:31

rolled into the centre. That would

be a great shot for us.

0:15:310:15:36

Keep it clean!

He's giving his

brother aroused. It is a team event.

0:15:410:15:52

-- giving his brother row.

0:15:520:16:00

They have overcooked it.

It is

getting closer.

0:16:060:16:16

getting closer. It is very close.

That is crucial.

I hear John Shuster

0:16:170:16:23

say they are lying to macro shots.

So that is crucial, the need to keep

0:16:230:16:28

the situation going at the moment.

Trading on this said, it is the

0:16:280:16:38

other one, the difference between

that and the other American stone in

0:16:380:16:42

the house. I think Britain is

closer.

0:16:420:16:55

This is curling. Well, he almost did

it too well. It has gone past the

0:16:550:17:04

other one.

0:17:040:17:12

He just got too much action on that

one.

0:17:120:17:20

one.

He is lying second in third

shot here, so we have to make sure

0:17:230:17:26

we get one.

0:17:260:17:31

we get one.

And he doesn't want the

chance to give the opportunity to

0:17:330:17:36

hit both reds.

0:17:360:17:41

hit both reds. Tucked into the four

foot would be good. He said, T-line,

0:17:410:17:50

don't be short. That is the key, it

is smart thinking because what is

0:17:500:17:56

obvious here is that John has given

him an opportunity to take it, he is

0:17:560:18:02

going to take it on. You missed one

last time round, but I think that's

0:18:020:18:06

his favourite short. They can draw

all day long.

0:18:060:18:14

all day long. If he can force one,

brilliant. Did not give him an easy

0:18:140:18:18

take out.

0:18:180:18:25

take out.

The stagger of the high

red and yellow are sitting in a

0:18:250:18:29

better position to come round and

behind them. But if he did not get

0:18:290:18:33

the stagger rate, it would leave

them on it. He is having to come

0:18:330:18:39

round the higher side, it is going

to stop.

0:18:390:18:47

to stop. No, it has run too far.

That really needed to sit anywhere

0:18:470:19:00

in the red. Wade can he move it and

stay? If you can check it out he

0:19:000:19:05

will get two.

Or is it three?

He

could possibly get three.

0:19:050:19:19

could possibly get three.

Overthrown

by the British skip, that is the

0:19:190:19:21

first real mistake he has made.

0:19:210:19:27

first real mistake he has made.

In

the last couple of ends, he has not

0:19:290:19:32

performed at and has given it up. I

guess he knows that he really has to

0:19:320:19:36

make sure he gets it out the house.

0:19:360:19:48

That is the key, making sure first

of all that he hits the stone and

0:19:500:19:54

Great Britain did not get the steel.

They would love to stick in there.

0:19:540:20:03

That looks like three from where

we're sitting. Again, if you hear

0:20:120:20:18

any expletives or anything else

which is not normally broadcast on

0:20:180:20:26

here, we apologise on of those down

there, they do get very frustrated,

0:20:260:20:30

and they do have microphones, and

sometimes forget that.

0:20:300:20:42

Great Britain are now finding

themselves to macro down after five.

0:20:470:20:50

They played well, the USA are making

mistakes, and the fans went a little

0:20:500:20:58

bit quiet for a while. They pick up

three more by a little mistake by

0:20:580:21:06

Kyle Smith. They are leading by two

at the halfway point.

0:21:060:21:17

Here are the headlines on day 12 so

far. In the downhill, Sofia Goggia

0:21:190:21:28

made history by becoming

0:21:280:21:37

made history by becoming Austria's

first downhill champion. Lindsey

0:21:370:21:38

Vonn had to settle for bronze.

Canada's Leman in the ski cross,

0:21:380:21:52

with bumps galore. The figure

skating women's singles competition

0:21:520:21:55

got underway.

0:21:550:22:06

got underway. Great Britain's women

claimed a 6-5 win over Canada, the

0:22:060:22:11

reigning champions, to book their

spot in the curling semi-finals. The

0:22:110:22:16

victory came with an added bonus of

eliminating their opponents from the

0:22:160:22:21

tournament. And an incredibly high

quality qualification, Billy Morgan

0:22:210:22:26

Adidas spot on Saturday's Big E

final of the snowboarding. Garcia

0:22:260:22:30

may top the pile after scoring 97.5

on his second run.

0:22:300:22:39

A little bit of work for Great

Britain's meant to do. They trail

0:22:430:22:47

the USA at the midpoint. The Brits

need to win the match to ensure

0:22:470:22:53

their place in the play-offs, but

they may still have a chance if they

0:22:530:22:58

do not. Let us hope they keep it

simple, win the match and then we

0:22:580:23:00

know they are through. Let us go

back to Jackie Lockhart and Steve

0:23:000:23:05

Cram at the Gangneung Curling

Centre.

0:23:050:23:11

COMMENTATOR: If Britain lose this

match, they will not be eliminated

0:23:110:23:23

because they must still be involved

in a tie-break scenario. There are

0:23:230:23:27

16 permutations of what can happen

with the result in this final

0:23:270:23:31

session, none of them involve an

elimination from Great Britain. If

0:23:310:23:37

they end up in a tie-break, there

are different versions as to what

0:23:370:23:41

that could be. One of the most

likely is that they would face

0:23:410:23:47

Switzerland, which would be a tough

match. To update you with things

0:23:470:23:53

elsewhere, as we watch highlights of

the first five ends, Canada against

0:23:530:24:00

Denmark, it is expected that, double

qualified winning that match. Sweden

0:24:000:24:05

are suffering at the moment at the

hands of Norway, 6-2. Norway cannot

0:24:050:24:10

qualify, Sweden are top of the

table, so that does not affect Great

0:24:100:24:15

Britain. The match that is

definitely significant, Korea versus

0:24:150:24:21

Japan. Korea winning would help the

cause. That is tied at 3-3. I was

0:24:210:24:30

reading that Matt Hamilton, he only

grows the moustache during the

0:24:300:24:33

season. Apparently his wife hates it

and he shaved it off again when the

0:24:330:24:40

curling season finishes.

He says he

likes it. I think he says it gives

0:24:400:24:44

some character than somebody to

remember. It is not really doing it

0:24:440:24:50

for me!

He is a bit of a character,

Manhattan -- Matt Hamilton. That is

0:24:500:25:00

John Shuster, the US skip. Finally

getting things right. A small error

0:25:000:25:04

from Kyle Smith, the first of this

match, the first real mistake. It

0:25:040:25:11

just came at the wrong time, giving

up three points. Any matches will

0:25:110:25:16

you give up three points, you're

just making life a little bit more

0:25:160:25:20

difficult for yourself.

Yes, we had

an opportunity to set any weight in

0:25:200:25:24

the house and make it difficult, but

Stone placement is key because you

0:25:240:25:29

did not want to leave it open and

give USA a chance for the double,

0:25:290:25:33

but it was really unfortunate

overrunning, not my -- not by much.

0:25:330:25:41

John Shuster came up with the goods

at that end to score three. We heard

0:25:410:25:50

Victor say at the break, take two,

force one, the guys are playing

0:25:500:25:56

really well. That they have to make

sure they capitalise on any small

0:25:560:26:00

mistake, and the USA are actually

getting some of the shots we can

0:26:000:26:05

capitalise on, so it is all still to

play for.

Yes, let's not forget the

0:26:050:26:11

USA beat Canada and Switzerland in

their previous two matches, which

0:26:110:26:15

was an incredible turnaround. They

looked to be pretty much out because

0:26:150:26:19

Switzerland and Canada are two of

the best teams here. It looked a

0:26:190:26:23

tough finish USA. Not a great shot

from Cammy Smith.

0:26:230:26:35

tough finish USA. Not a great shot

from Cammy That can be taken out.

If

0:26:350:26:39

it had been in the Freegard storm,

you cannot remove any stones until

0:26:390:26:43

the fourth has been played. With it

being in the house, the USA have the

0:26:430:26:47

opportunity to remove it, which does

not help our situation. We need some

0:26:470:26:52

guards to create two so we have

something to hide behind.

0:26:520:27:03

Not looking to remove any of these,

we're just going to tap them back so

0:27:110:27:15

we can put red stones in front of

them and use them as protection.

0:27:150:27:24

The coach was saying, you play well,

when the shots, you will win the

0:27:310:27:35

game. I did not hear anything around

strategy. I just keep thinking, do

0:27:350:27:42

not give them too many takeouts. It

seems to be the shots they are

0:27:420:27:46

making, try to get into a drawing

game with them, but then you have to

0:27:460:27:49

get your guards up and make them

come round.

0:27:490:27:57

come round. Were going to see them

with some more rocks.

The only thing

0:27:580:28:05

I would contradict that with is not

trying to rush into it too quickly.

0:28:050:28:10

We're only to macro shots down, and

if you wait until you get the

0:28:100:28:17

opportunity for it, often it is the

latter stages of the game, patients.

0:28:170:28:28

Kyle Waddell has played really well

so far in this match.

Yes, his mum

0:28:320:28:39

and dad are out here watching it.

Has two brothers are left at home,

0:28:390:28:47

probably watching this morning. His

grandparents will be watching as

0:28:470:28:52

well. A real curling family.

0:28:520:28:58

You're seeing a much bigger swing

this morning on the ice and that has

0:29:110:29:17

almost come through the other side.

Matt Hamilton can play an intern

0:29:170:29:25

take out.

0:29:250:29:26

-- in-turn take out. Just came

through the gap.

0:29:320:29:41

through the gap. He would have

preferred to stick in there. I do

0:29:410:29:44

not think he will be too bothered.

He did not want to sit on the nose

0:29:440:29:51

either. Another opportunity for us

to utilise the high yellow of the

0:29:510:30:00

USA.

0:30:000:30:07

So, this one has enough running of

its own. Often, if the weight is

0:30:110:30:16

coming off it, you can see Cammy

trying to sweep and pushed closer to

0:30:160:30:20

the centre. A reasonable attempt.

Just sat high for such a long time

0:30:200:30:27

and the guys didn't want to sweep

early. Sweeping of course does

0:30:270:30:32

several things to a stone, it can

take it further if both guys are

0:30:320:30:36

sleeping, and you can also,

depending on which way the stone is

0:30:360:30:42

turning, you can sweep it one way to

make it cold more, and then -- make

0:30:420:30:51

it more curled, as well.

0:30:510:31:00

So far, this end not quite

developing in which they would like,

0:31:010:31:06

great Britain.

You often find this,

the USA don't have a hammer but they

0:31:060:31:12

have control of the end and because

Britain are trying to create

0:31:120:31:16

something and not get it their way,

USA are able to tap the stones out,

0:31:160:31:23

three stones in the house now.

That

keeps giving them options, there's

0:31:230:31:28

an opportunity to get behind that

front yellow. Just got chance. A bit

0:31:280:31:36

flat. In all of these shots, they're

not horrendous, just not right.

0:31:360:31:49

That is the option that you just

heard, they probably don't want the

0:31:520:31:59

chance given to blank this end.

Thomas Muirhead playing third.

0:31:590:32:04

There's cheering in the crowd,

there's much going on Korea and

0:32:040:32:07

Japan. They have got the hammer and

they are in the sixth, Korea.

0:32:070:32:16

Going to have another go. Just

having another look at this, Kyle

0:32:250:32:32

Smith.

0:32:320:32:36

Yeah, they really need to sit in

here, rely on the shot after this.

0:32:400:32:48

Yes, we're losing out on areas to

hide behind. Even if the guys get a

0:32:480:32:54

nice hit an roll in here, because

it's so close to the yellow, the USA

0:32:540:32:59

can to stride piano straight back

onto the top of it.

Come out the

0:32:590:33:02

other side.

-- the USA can just get

their yellow straight back on the

0:33:020:33:08

top of it. It could be in our favour

if the USA hit that and fit out

0:33:080:33:13

there, then the two yellow are at

the top of the house and we can pull

0:33:130:33:18

one behind it.

0:33:180:33:26

Duluth, Minnesota, the Duluth

curling club, these guys are from.

0:33:430:33:51

John Shuster, an all-time great

American curling, fourth Olympics

0:33:510:33:55

for him. It's a unique achievement,

he won a medal in Italy in 2006.

0:33:550:34:03

This end has certainly not gone

Britain's way here and Kyle Smith is

0:34:120:34:16

a real job on. There are three US

stones, his last draw in the

0:34:160:34:21

previous end was way too heavy. He

needs to be much better here, got to

0:34:210:34:25

be incredibly accurate.

0:34:250:34:28

Hopes for a little bit of a mistake

after this.

Got to make sure they

0:34:310:34:40

after this.

Got to make sure they do

not over curl here, wants to be

0:34:410:34:46

fully near that house, if it goes

and over curls, they could be a

0:34:460:34:56

space where he can ship it out. The

fourth that is open, everything is

0:34:560:35:02

on the one side.

It actually looks

all right for weight but it's going

0:35:020:35:07

to start pulling across quite

heavily. Around that front yellow.

0:35:070:35:13

Come and tucked in right on that,

needs to get in.

That's a good shot.

0:35:130:35:22

Nice effort.

Might be able to just

see an edge of it.

Just use that

0:35:220:35:31

yellow at the top to remove that.

And fourth Great Britain to take

0:35:310:35:37

one. -- force Great Britain.

0:35:370:35:46

Well, it's not the two that the

coach said.

But it depends

0:35:460:35:52

whether...

Keep them close, if they

get one, it keeps USA within

0:35:520:36:00

touching distance.

John Shuster has

to make the shot and we have seen a

0:36:000:36:02

couple of times where he's got one

shot and not the other. This could

0:36:020:36:07

be the same opportunity. He's got

it. I was hoping!

I just think the

0:36:070:36:18

takeout, I know I keep saying this,

but you keep giving him them, he's

0:36:180:36:23

going to make them. He seems so much

more couple playing this shots. He

0:36:230:36:28

is 56% on a draw and I know that was

straightforward.

That was the only

0:36:280:36:34

shot...

Absolutely, but if we keep

doing that, he'll be fine.

Each time

0:36:340:36:44

he makes these shots, his confidence

grows.

Well, he's missed two or

0:36:440:36:52

three draws, identikit going to miss

them. It's important that -- I don't

0:36:520:36:56

think he's going to miss them.

The

guys are really having to work this

0:36:560:37:01

hard. Head down and keep going. I

think you've got the whole of the

0:37:010:37:08

rich to work with. Just for the one.

Good effort. Very good effort for

0:37:080:37:16

the sleepers. Cammy Smith and Kyle

Waddell. Thomas Muirhead watching

0:37:160:37:25

and Kyle Smith. They get one, not

the two they would have liked. But

0:37:250:37:29

it produces the deficit. USA lead

5-4 after six ends, four to go. A

0:37:290:37:37

win and they go through to the

semifinals. Lose and they have to

0:37:370:37:43

wait and see what their fate is, as

far as the tie-breakers, they could

0:37:430:37:49

still qualify depending on results

al swear. -- elsewhere.

0:37:490:37:59

If they lose, they are definitely in

the tie-break scenario, there is no

0:38:070:38:11

combination of results which result

in an qualifying by right.

0:38:110:38:18

in an qualifying by right. In all of

those tie-break combinations,

0:38:210:38:26

possible tie-break combinations, the

most likely scenario is that they

0:38:260:38:31

would play Switzerland. Either in an

outright competition to see who

0:38:310:38:36

comes forth, and whose fifth, or on

a tie-break for third and fourth

0:38:360:38:39

which could involve four teams.

0:38:390:38:45

Cheering happening. I'll give you a

score update. That end hasn't quite

0:38:450:38:55

finished. What I can see is that

Korea are lying three, with a stone

0:38:550:39:03

left. They have the hammer as well

in that one. Could even pick up

0:39:030:39:07

four. Canada are leading as expected

against Denmark, 8-2. Canada look as

0:39:070:39:15

though they're through. What they

need to do to make sure they

0:39:150:39:19

qualify. Britain have a lot of work

to do.

0:39:190:39:23

Already got a garden, just moving

that. Going to hang in there.

There

0:39:270:39:35

are just playing that pic shot,

quite happy with that. He would have

0:39:350:39:39

liked to have rolled that out the

free space outside the house, which

0:39:390:39:42

is still in play.

0:39:420:39:47

You heard me say that Korea could

take four, you can probably tell by

0:39:540:40:01

the cheering that that's exactly

what's happened. So Korea are doing

0:40:010:40:08

great Britain a big favour, I'm not

sure if it will change things that

0:40:080:40:13

much, it means that Japan, if they

were to lose that much, they could

0:40:130:40:19

be out of qualification contention,

depending on results.

0:40:190:40:30

depending on results. And then grow

Britain would be playing sitting. A

0:40:300:40:32

little drop of the brush but it

didn't touch the -- then Great

0:40:320:40:36

Britain would be playing

Switzerland. The little drop of the

0:40:360:40:40

brush but it didn't cut stone. Just

caught it by the merest fraction,

0:40:400:40:47

that goes through. He was trying

another little tick shot there.

0:40:470:40:57

Unfortunately because you need to

put the weight on it, if you don't

0:40:570:41:00

connect with the stone at all, you

will run through.

Gave that every

0:41:000:41:04

effort.

A bit of a Scandinavian

party going on for almost. Nothing

0:41:040:41:13

to celebrate, they decided to shake

hands very early. Sweden have had

0:41:130:41:20

enough, they have been beaten by

Norway. Sweden though they are

0:41:200:41:26

through, they have decided that they

are out of this match. Sony Norway

0:41:260:41:32

win, a bit of pride for them. That's

the last of the trousers. Might not

0:41:320:41:41

see them again. Because he's in his

mid-40s, not likely be back.

I think

0:41:410:41:50

they are verging to the end of their

career, maybe we have to ask them if

0:41:500:41:54

we can have a pair of their fancy

pants.

You are welcome to them.

I

0:41:540:41:59

think I can carry them off quite

well.

That one over, he nearly got

0:41:590:42:07

that outside one as well. Britain

still sitting with two there. All

0:42:070:42:11

opened elbow. -- all open now,

though.

0:42:110:42:23

though. Kyle Waddell trying to put

the card back in place. -- trying to

0:42:230:42:29

put them guard back in place. That

red on the left might come into play

0:42:290:42:36

later on.

0:42:360:42:38

Nice guard thrown by Kyle Waddell,

right on the centre line, or just

0:42:520:42:56

about. So the USA will remove that.

Don't want that hanging around, that

0:42:560:43:01

makes their life more difficult. Try

and live in the US on how to --

0:43:010:43:06

limit US to one, like Eve Muirhead

against Canada today, she ended up

0:43:060:43:13

picking the hammer up in the eighth,

she got two in the eighth, forced

0:43:130:43:20

one in the night, two in the tense,

textbook stuff.

0:43:200:43:29

Jubilation everywhere. The guys here

have got a lot of work to do,

0:43:340:43:37

though. Still very much in this. So

Thomas Muirhead, the younger brother

0:43:370:43:43

of Eve Muirhead.

0:43:430:43:48

So just hoping to sit outside of the

house here, right on that centre

0:43:580:44:03

line, if possible. You can see the

guys keeping an eye on the weight

0:44:030:44:06

and line.

That's another good shot.

At least they're putting in the

0:44:060:44:16

guards, hitting the spot, looking at

whether to run that back away. Still

0:44:160:44:24

think he's keen on getting rid of

that one out on the wing.

He is

0:44:240:44:29

trying, because the run backs, he's

try to get a corner out that way.

0:44:290:44:35

No. Almost missing that one,

catching that a little thin.

0:44:350:44:46

A little sigh of exasperation. Well,

whatever he was asking John, the

0:44:490:44:57

microphone switched to the British

team. And another guard being asked

0:44:570:45:04

of Thomas Muirhead.

0:45:040:45:08

I don't think you'll try, I think

you'll try and run this back this

0:45:140:45:18

time. A bit closer.

Thomas's that,

being left at home, Gordon, to look

0:45:180:45:24

after the sheep. They are sheep

farmers, Thomas and Glenn.

He'll be

0:45:240:45:30

up already.

Yes, I think it's

lambing time as well. And Gordon is

0:45:300:45:36

playing in the Scottish senior

Championships this week, I think

0:45:360:45:39

they start today or tomorrow. So

unreal curling family.

Tyler George

0:45:390:45:46

trying to get this one right. It's

hanging out there. Just coming

0:45:460:45:54

around little bit.

0:45:540:45:59

Wade he went for the other one!

That

is why. We are so used to seeing him

0:46:000:46:06

taking the guard off, and watching

from the send instead of watching

0:46:060:46:13

the screen, so you probably guessed

what was going on! Rolls out a

0:46:130:46:17

little. Kyle Smith would love to go

back the other way, rollback under

0:46:170:46:21

the guard, which they have left out

the.

The USA have the opportunity of

0:46:210:46:31

seeing the shot in the house. The

high guard that Great Britain put on

0:46:310:46:35

was not covering the entire short.

Again, and opportunity for Kyle

0:46:350:46:42

Smith to catch the storm and roll

into the centre.

0:46:420:46:49

into the centre. Cammy trying to

help it into the centre.

A pretty

0:46:520:46:58

good shot by Kyle Smith.

0:46:580:47:05

That is their word of the week, a

wee hair. A wee hair more.

0:47:190:47:33

John Shuster, he knows his team have

the opportunity to keep their

0:47:350:47:38

Olympic hopes alive. They are

leading Great Britain 5-4. A more

0:47:380:47:48

delicate shot required from the USA

skip.

He has played a lighter

0:47:480:47:54

weight.

0:47:540:47:59

weight.

He does not hang around.

Forcing one is what they needed to

0:48:040:48:16

do minimum.

Ahead can stick is all

that is required.

0:48:160:48:29

that is required.

You get the

feeling at this end at the USA just

0:48:290:48:33

tried to stay calm and say, OK, we

will take one. Not try to do

0:48:330:48:39

anything silly or be too

adventurous, which they maybe were a

0:48:390:48:42

little earlier.

0:48:420:48:48

Just touching the forfeit should be

straightforward for John Shuster to

0:48:570:49:01

remove it and sit there for the one.

The British stone on the other side

0:49:010:49:06

means they cannot blank the other

end. It ended up being a useful

0:49:060:49:18

stolen in that effect. Britain have

the hammer in the eighth and tenth

0:49:240:49:27

round. They will have to find their

best shots, but this has been there

0:49:270:49:35

a better end, they have played

nicely.

0:49:350:49:42

John Shuster hoping they can extend

the lead, leading 6-4 after seven

0:49:550:50:01

ends. There is still all to play

for. In a match which victory means

0:50:010:50:07

so much to Great Britain. The men

were not necessarily fancied so much

0:50:070:50:10

to make it to the semifinals, they

would not have said that to

0:50:100:50:16

themselves. They came here thinking

they had a great chance. They will

0:50:160:50:21

be very disappointed if they do not

manage to clinch this. It would not

0:50:210:50:25

be the end, they would not be

eliminated if they lose, they will

0:50:250:50:29

have to come back for the tie-break

session tomorrow.

0:50:290:50:36

session tomorrow. If they -- who

they play is undecided, but at the

0:50:370:50:42

moment it would be against

Switzerland.

0:50:420:50:53

Two here in the eighth end. If they

can force one in the ninth and get

0:50:580:51:07

two in the tenth... That Azizi

0:51:070:51:13

two in the tenth... That Azizi --

that is easy said!

If we can pick up

0:51:130:51:23

two, try to force the one, have the

hammer going down the last, that

0:51:230:51:27

would be textbook stuff we're

looking for.

0:51:270:51:34

If Great Britain win this, does it

help Japan? I'm trying to work it

0:51:420:51:52

out. No, it wouldn't, it would mean

Switzerland would qualify with Great

0:51:520:51:56

Britain, if Britain when the and

Japan lose. Sadly, I see sadly, that

0:51:560:52:03

would mean Great Britain play Canada

in the semifinal. Not getting ahead

0:52:030:52:07

of ourselves at the moment! If you

finish third or fourth he will play

0:52:070:52:12

Canada or Sweden.

Both games will be

tough! All games in the play-off

0:52:120:52:19

stages are really tough.

If you're

just getting up to us this morning,

0:52:190:52:26

good morning. The great news already

is the British women have qualified

0:52:260:52:31

for the semifinal, who will play

Sweden in their semifinal. Canada

0:52:310:52:38

have been knocked out, Great Britain

beat them. Canada are always

0:52:380:52:43

favourites to win a medal, they have

never not won a medal in women's

0:52:430:52:46

curling. They have gone out the

competition by courtesy of the

0:52:460:52:50

defeat to Great Britain. The men are

trying to emulate the women, trying

0:52:500:52:55

to secure their spot. A lot of work

to do here. Corner guard has been

0:52:550:53:00

put up by Cammy Smith. The USA have

come straight in with those.

Cammy

0:53:000:53:10

trying to play it controlled down

here. He's looking for it to set on

0:53:100:53:18

the nose. A little high.

0:53:180:53:26

the nose. A little high. Slightly

bounced to the side. And opportunity

0:53:260:53:33

for an easy take out for the USA.

They just need something to really

0:53:330:53:43

go for them in this end. To try to

get themselves going. They want to

0:53:430:53:49

stay calm, and just to see there are

chances for them to rest this away

0:53:490:53:57

from the USA.

0:53:570:54:04

from the USA. Biggest dollar corner

guard being left at the moment. --

0:54:040:54:10

there is still a corner guard being

left at the moment.

0:54:100:54:20

Probably about the same weight as

the last.

They are just not getting

0:54:250:54:32

a little role. Stones width to the

other side, sitting above that,

0:54:320:54:39

would help.

They've is cheering down

the bottom end, come -- Canada

0:54:390:54:48

shaking hands with Denmark. Denmark

have finished bottom, but Canada

0:54:480:54:52

have secured their place with six

wins and three losses, even the

0:54:520:54:57

three losses was unusual for them.

One of them was to this team, which

0:54:570:55:02

is what made things difficult for

Great Britain because we are looking

0:55:020:55:06

-- were looking at the USA and

coming out with a win over Canada

0:55:060:55:18

which kept their hopes alive, and

they needed to win this. Canada got

0:55:180:55:24

back on track and will sit in second

place. Even if Great Britain win

0:55:240:55:28

this, they will be behind Canada

because Canada beat Great Britain in

0:55:280:55:33

the round-robin.

0:55:330:55:39

We are desperately trying hard to

get little roles. Keep your head up!

0:55:460:55:55

It is just fractions.

0:55:550:56:03

The only thing I would say is that

as the women got the last three

0:56:030:56:09

ends, they were really making the

shots play really well. And the

0:56:090:56:16

chances came they really took them.

At some point very soon, that is

0:56:160:56:19

going to happen for the men as well.

Very soon.

Yes, I agree.

0:56:190:56:35

So, another chance to hit and roll

and use the card. Thomas Muirhead

0:56:380:56:45

has to get it right this time.

0:56:450:56:52

has to get it right this time. The

Manitoba tuck is his delivery style.

0:56:520:57:01

Curled a little bit at the end. It

looked as though the line was good

0:57:010:57:07

all the way down.

I did try.

0:57:070:57:16

all the way down.

I did try. The

problem with some of these shots as

0:57:160:57:18

you do not want to overthrow them.

If you do not get enough and

0:57:180:57:24

roll-out, you have wasted it. The

shooter is still in the house.

0:57:240:57:34

shooter is still in the house.

One

here would not be disastrous but it

0:57:340:57:36

makes the job harder.

0:57:360:57:44

Whenever you get these stones

hanging around when you're trying to

0:57:490:57:52

get two, it makes the job a little

more difficult. What was the call?

0:57:520:58:01

To come round behind the guard. We

have got it out there, we have to

0:58:010:58:09

try to make it our friend.

This is

the first time they have really

0:58:090:58:16

tried to come behind it without

hitting something. Has Thomas

0:58:160:58:23

Muirhead got on his drawing! -- his

drawing

0:58:230:58:38

drawing boots?

It is not infer

first, it is in for a second.

0:58:380:58:42

Pressure on the USA.

0:58:420:58:46

Portable get dead nose on this?

Would do we want to put it if you

0:58:580:59:06

doesn't have the double, so much to

think about?!

If we went here now,

0:59:060:59:17

it makes the double... He has got to

make the double.

You do not like

0:59:170:59:26

this?

It's fine.

0:59:260:59:36

this?

It's fine.

If he draws, we

drop.

Tyler George is saying that if

0:59:360:59:42

he draws, we drop but

0:59:420:59:50

he draws, we drop but you can... I

think from a British perspective,

0:59:500:59:55

and he's probably right, Tyler

George, but you just keep thinking

0:59:550:59:58

that John Shuster wanted to make the

double. The drop

0:59:581:00:15

double. The drop accuracy, -- one.

Kyle Smith is doing better than the

1:00:181:00:21

other skip. They still cannot make

up their mind.

I think I'm with

1:00:211:00:28

Tyler George, they have got to get

one in the back eight. Got to be

1:00:281:00:35

making sure that if they want to

force one here, they have to make

1:00:351:00:39

sure they have a second shot.

1:00:391:00:44

You heard him say he wants to go to

nine, the zones are numbered. Seven,

1:00:441:00:59

eight and nine out of other side of

the button, so nine is at the back

1:00:591:01:03

of the eight foot. Tucked in behind

those two reds if he can. A bit of

1:01:031:01:10

work to do. Just wants to leave it.

He has placed that OK.

1:01:101:01:22

He has placed that OK.

So where does

Kyle Waddell to put his? He wants

1:01:241:01:28

the front row where does Kyle wants

to put his? Who would love to tuck

1:01:281:01:36

it behind the frontier, perhaps? --

the front yellow?

I think you can

1:01:361:01:44

freeze the front yellow. If you

don't freeze it well, these guys are

1:01:441:01:51

so good at picking shots out, they

will just drown.

1:01:511:01:56

Just go to roll it coming. He wants

to roll across. I'd like to see a

1:02:051:02:11

sitting shot here.

I like freeze,

but then I'm a woman!

Let's hope

1:02:111:02:19

it's the right choice of shot, so

important to pick the right shot.

1:02:191:02:24

And then execute it so well. It's

going to be a bit of a tough one,

1:02:241:02:30

we've seen this not really working

for Great Britain at the moment.

Is

1:02:301:02:33

it past the guard? It's not!

You're

kidding! That's a bit of a... That's

1:02:331:02:47

a shocker from Kyle Smith.

He was 1

million miles away from getting that

1:02:471:02:51

shot in the house.

No wonder, the

USA are sensing an opportunity to

1:02:511:02:59

wrap this match up, possibly. What

do they want to do? Great Britain

1:02:591:03:05

have the hammer here. There's still

an opportunity for Kyle Smith to get

1:03:051:03:10

one.

1:03:101:03:18

If we go here, he's got that.

Bang,

bang.

Even if I just...

1:03:181:03:27

Kyle Smith has thrown a couple of

studies this evening which he will

1:03:271:03:31

not want to see again, I'm sure. In

terms of his Olympic campaign, he's

1:03:311:03:37

been playing well, making the big

shots in the right times. But not in

1:03:371:03:41

this match.

1:03:411:03:46

this match. 6-4, two down, got to

get at least one here.

OK, they're

1:03:471:03:58

taking the safer option here. Tyler

George was keen to forget about that

1:03:581:04:09

red and draw one in and killed the

game early but being too greedy can

1:04:091:04:13

work against you so they're just

looking to remove the red and roll

1:04:131:04:17

across into the centre. It's closing

down that forefoot for Kyle to draw

1:04:171:04:25

too. He's looking for any weight of

hitting the inside and rolling to

1:04:251:04:31

the forefoot.

1:04:311:04:39

It's a big shot for the US skip.

He's done it well.

He's played that

1:04:401:04:47

well.

He's done very well there. The

USA sensing a massive opportunity

1:04:471:04:55

here. There's four US stones in the

house, just one left for Kyle Smith

1:04:551:05:03

to deliver. He had a very poor shot

with his previous one. And now he

1:05:031:05:09

faces a very tough shots to even get

one.

If I'm being picky, that stone,

1:05:091:05:15

he would have wanted to keep it to

the right-hand side of the centre

1:05:151:05:18

lane. But he has freed up a bit of

the forefoot. He is still played a

1:05:181:05:24

very good shot and Kyle Smith has to

make this filly in the forefoot.

He

1:05:241:05:31

does, he's got a clear run into it

but he can't for to make any

1:05:311:05:37

mistakes here.

1:05:371:05:44

Kyle Smith, then. To make sure that

Great Britain get something out of

1:05:441:05:50

his end to keep this match going.

Because to give up one or two would

1:05:501:05:54

make life very difficult indeed. So

this needs to be very good.

It's

1:05:541:05:58

looking like. They're going to have

to work this really hard, I doubt if

1:05:581:06:04

they got the weight.

Nowhere near.

In fact that could be the match.

1:06:041:06:18

I got you a good weight, I go to

ten.

I heard that comment, not sure

1:06:201:06:30

that was needed, keep your hand in

your pocket, was the message the

1:06:301:06:37

USA, but that's the thing to do. The

USA, then, come away with a victory

1:06:371:06:43

which has been manufactured by Great

Britain's bad play. A lot of

1:06:431:06:49

mistakes creeping in at the end,

never really got things going. They

1:06:491:06:53

started a play, they were going

well, had things going for them. But

1:06:531:06:58

sadly...

And going to say they were

just, there were 20 little errors

1:06:581:07:07

and that makes huge differences in

this game. Kyle, a couple of shots

1:07:071:07:11

where he was on finishing it off.

All credit to the USA, they played

1:07:111:07:15

very well, they would figure letters

back into the game. -- they were not

1:07:151:07:20

going to let us back into the game.

The opportunity to guarantee a place

1:07:201:07:25

in the semifinals has gone, it will

be a tie-break match for Great

1:07:251:07:30

Britain, it looks as though it could

be against Switzerland, the final

1:07:301:07:41

score finishing before the last two

ends, the USA winning 10-4 over

1:07:411:07:45

great Britain.

1:07:451:07:46

A tough defeat for the men. Earlier

on today, the women were on the ice,

1:07:521:07:57

they knew that a win would put them

straight through into the

1:07:571:08:01

semifinals. It was a tough match for

Eve Muirhead against the Canadians,

1:08:011:08:08

the Canadians beat them four years

ago in the semifinals. This is a

1:08:081:08:11

different rink that had not been

quite firing on all cylinders. Let's

1:08:111:08:17

join Eve Muirhead in the final end

where they had a hammer is the end

1:08:171:08:22

not only to get themselves into the

play-offs, but to put the Canadians

1:08:221:08:25

out. High-pressure stuff, let's join

Jackie Lockhart and Steve Cram.

1:08:251:08:35

Great Britain will have to sit and

watch and see how the results play

1:08:351:08:40

out but there's every chance that

these two will play other in the

1:08:401:08:44

tie-break if Canada win their match

against the leading athlete of

1:08:441:08:47

Russia. -- the Olympic athlete of

Russia. But they have been heavily

1:08:471:08:58

defeated this morning, against

Korea. But career have been superb,

1:08:581:09:03

they scored nine in the first three

ends

1:09:031:09:13

ends against 08 Sweden look as if

they about to

1:09:131:09:18

ends against 08 Sweden

look as if they about to

1:09:181:09:22

Sweden have a chance later on to

confirm.

1:09:221:09:32

confirm. They will if they cannot

win against China, that's confirmed.

1:09:321:09:38

They will qualify, six wins. Beating

China 8-4. The Switzerland and

1:09:381:09:48

Denmark match doesn't matter. That

defeat by Sweden over China, the

1:09:481:09:56

defeat for China, means that they

are no longer the competition.

1:09:561:10:08

So the task is as it always is in

terms of getting two here, they have

1:10:111:10:18

put a straightforward forward guard

on, they have got one in on the

1:10:181:10:22

bottom.

Canada have put a really

high guard on, I think they wanted

1:10:221:10:28

it much closer to the house. We have

got a opportunity to move that. If

1:10:281:10:35

we can play one to come round and

tap and read at the back...

1:10:351:10:46

tap and read at the back... They

have had a good week so far.

1:10:461:10:53

have had a good week so far.

Trying

to come in on top of the red. Nice

1:10:541:10:57

shot from Lauren Gray. That's a good

position, that yellow. I know you

1:10:571:11:03

might be thinking, it's early stages

of the end but a team that control

1:11:031:11:10

around that forefoot, staying behind

the team line. It's gone quiet in

1:11:101:11:16

here now. There was a little clutch

of Canadian flounced... Fans!, the

1:11:161:11:27

last time you had a Philander? --

when was the last time you had a

1:11:271:11:34

flan? But they outnumber the richest

fans, they have been noisy all week.

1:11:341:11:41

-- British bands. They are leading

here. Joanne Courtney.

She was a

1:11:411:11:52

little light of weight there and

1:11:521:11:59

little light of weight there and it

has over curled.

She has picked the

1:12:011:12:06

wrong time to do that. It was her

shot which allowed the initiative to

1:12:061:12:13

go.

1:12:131:12:14

They did recover from that shot of

Joanne's Courtney, when even played

1:12:181:12:26

the shots, but she shrugged when

1:12:261:12:29

they want to bring this as far as

they can.

1:12:381:12:41

Still coming in. Still coming in.

And just perhaps it off the side,

1:12:411:12:49

and nice shot. Two yellows lined up.

Good sweeping. Anna Sloan working

1:12:491:12:55

very hard, breathing heavily. He

said curling is not a physical

1:12:551:13:01

sport?

1:13:011:13:02

Nobody can question the commitment

that these girls have put in today.

1:13:181:13:25

Both these sides desperately wanting

the win. But who wants it more?

1:13:251:13:35

Let's watch this stone finish up.

1:13:361:13:40

While the watching that one come in,

the Swedish team have confirmed

1:13:441:13:49

their participation in the

semifinals, there was a nice little

1:13:491:13:58

dance from the Swedish men, all

dressed in yellow. Very happy, often

1:13:581:14:03

our -- off to our right. She is

trying to conjure up an opportunity.

1:14:031:14:15

Two in there.

1:14:151:14:20

Do you know what? I think I like

this better. Pack.

So, both teams

1:14:321:14:41

have used their time-outs, both of

the skips have got to choose their

1:14:411:14:45

shots, plenty of time but they have

got to be assertive. Pick the right

1:14:451:14:51

shot and as you say, it then about

making sure that the execution is

1:14:511:14:55

spot on.

1:14:551:15:02

That result for Sweden, just very

quickly to confirm, means China

1:15:021:15:07

cannot qualify.

1:15:071:15:13

That is exactly what she wanted.

One

in the button and two just above it.

1:15:261:15:40

Important to keep the shooter here.

You heard she said.

I think I would

1:15:421:15:52

have been tempted to go for the

other.

This will be even a British

1:15:521:15:59

stone. But she said she wants the

shooter to stay on top.

1:15:591:16:08

What a mistake from Emma Miskew. She

finally lives up to her name.

1:16:181:16:31

finally lives up to her name. Cannot

believe it.

1:16:311:16:42

I might have been tempted to take

the other

1:16:421:16:51

the other yellow, take both of them,

but with kissing the Reds strictly

1:16:511:16:56

across, you have closed off that

option -- kissing the reds straight

1:16:561:17:09

across you have closed off the

option. That was Eve Muirhead's mum,

1:17:091:17:15

and Kyle Waddell's mum.

1:17:151:17:26

I'm getting hot in here.

I think

that is a song.

1:17:261:17:41

Emma Miskew did not play a good shot

last time, but a chance to move

1:17:441:17:48

things around a little bit.

She will

try to drive it into the pack.

1:17:481:17:57

She is sitting on top, but that is a

clutch of four stones. Still above

1:18:171:18:23

the T-line as well. Things are

looking difficult for Rachel Homan.

1:18:231:18:32

At this moment in time I think she

needs a helicopter.

1:18:321:18:35

LAUGHTER

1:18:351:18:38

Protection front?

It kind of goes against the grain,

1:18:431:18:46

you have a hammer, you do not want

to put things in front, but are well

1:18:461:18:49

at the moment.

1:18:491:18:57

at the moment. -- they are sitting

so well at the moment.

How do we get

1:18:571:19:01

here?

1:19:011:19:06

here?

Like that?

There is nothing on

this turn.

Remember, we always have

1:19:061:19:13

the last stone here, we can close it

up and make it really difficult for

1:19:131:19:20

Canada.

1:19:201:19:30

Come on. She just wants to have a

look.

1:19:341:19:40

look. Whispering.

That is the

opposite of the Canadians, because

1:19:451:19:49

they would be happily telling you

what the opposition could and could

1:19:491:19:52

not do.

1:19:521:20:02

Anna isn't sure. She knows where Eve

wants it, but I am not sure Anna is

1:20:071:20:16

comfortable with which way to come

in.

She wants to come in at the

1:20:161:20:21

clockwise rotation, as we are

looking, from the left-hand side.

1:20:211:20:26

She cannot get to where she wants

coming the other way. I'm not sure

1:20:261:20:30

she's comfortable playing this.

1:20:301:20:41

Three would be good.

They want the

angle from the red.

1:20:491:21:07

Actually that is not bad because of

the way that the red are sitting off

1:21:091:21:13

the said. Rachel Homan is fighting

for her life in terms of the Olympic

1:21:131:21:25

tournament for her team and the

nation. They have never, ever not

1:21:251:21:30

made it through to the semifinals.

She has two stones left. Four

1:21:301:21:36

British stones between the first

Canadian stone and the button. She

1:21:361:21:43

has no other option than to move the

stones around and hope things fall

1:21:431:21:46

nicely for her. Eve Muirhead still

has two to come. Rachel Homan with

1:21:461:21:53

real intent.

1:21:531:21:55

That is outweighed. She sprung two

of them. Even the top yellow Fern

1:22:041:22:11

Britton, the fact that she has left

that, that can be tapped in. Still

1:22:111:22:19

protecting those two.

1:22:191:22:25

protecting those two. Canada are

allowing three, third shot.

1:22:251:22:36

It has gone very quiet in the arena.

All trying to listen to the

1:22:391:22:43

discussion.

If she comes here, she

is forcing it. What about a small

1:22:431:22:54

bump on the six?

I think Eve

Muirhead is conscious that she does

1:22:541:22:58

not want to allow a draw to even get

in there. Do not give her the chance

1:22:581:23:02

of the drop. If she wants to move

some storms around, fine, you have

1:23:021:23:06

plenty of yellows, but do not allow

her to draw around the outside and,

1:23:061:23:12

in.

She would be struggling to sit

shot. The girls have chosen to come

1:23:121:23:25

from the right-hand side -- not from

the right-hand side, but across the

1:23:251:23:29

left.

1:23:291:23:35

She will want this to come right

into the 8-foot. That also takes up

1:23:491:23:53

the draw for Rachel Homan and forces

her to try to play a triple take

1:23:531:23:57

out.

1:23:571:24:04

out.

And Eve would still have it at

the other side. It needs to come as

1:24:041:24:11

far as she can. They are going to

have to sweep this hard. It doesn't

1:24:111:24:15

have much on it.

1:24:151:24:17

There was a back red on there as

well. If she tries the triple take

1:24:261:24:31

out, the chances of not hitting the

take out Aslam.

1:24:311:24:38

take out Aslam. She wants to draw in

here.

1:24:391:24:46

Shook at the guard on the way to.

She obviously doesn't want to catch

1:24:561:25:02

the British yellow that Eve Muirhead

has just played. She's giving it

1:25:021:25:11

plenty of ayes. She has the come

around. She's still going to get

1:25:111:25:16

very close with this.

She should

maybe have played the triple.

1:25:161:25:24

Everyone has their hands on the

heart at the moment.

This is it, no

1:25:241:25:30

more chances. The last stone for

Canada. Last chance for Rachel

1:25:301:25:36

Homan. Eve Muirhead is watching. Her

heart rate will be high.

1:25:361:25:47

heart rate will be high. Just trying

to survive.

1:25:481:25:53

to survive.

This is to put Britain

in a play-off place.

1:25:541:26:11

in a play-off place.

It is starting

to turn.

1:26:111:26:12

Great Britain are going to win this.

The handshakes mean that Great

1:26:161:26:23

Britain have won this match! A

superb performance from Eve Muirhead

1:26:231:26:27

and her team.

1:26:271:26:33

and her team. Anna Sloan struggled

through the match. But in the end

1:26:351:26:39

they all came together. Brilliantly

led by Eve Muirhead with some

1:26:391:26:41

stunning shots.

1:26:411:26:45

led by Eve Muirhead with some

stunning shots. Congratulations,

1:26:451:26:47

you're through to the semifinal. Job

done?

Yes, dilated, we knew it would

1:26:471:26:54

be a tough game against Canada, but

we came out and played a great game

1:26:541:26:58

to book a spot in the semifinal.

That was our first goal, we are

1:26:581:27:03

delighted.

How about the jump in the

air?

I can't actually remember that!

1:27:031:27:08

When you are in the zone, you forget

about the small things. I am glad I

1:27:081:27:14

landed safely on my feet!

You were

struggling earlier, but got it

1:27:141:27:19

together for the last few ends?

I

definitely was, and the girls kept

1:27:191:27:24

with me and stuck with me and they

were really patient, and that was

1:27:241:27:28

probably the story of the game. We

know that we finished strong, thank

1:27:281:27:33

God I turned up the last couple of

ends, but patience and staying in

1:27:331:27:39

the moment. That is what we did out

there and we came through.

How tense

1:27:391:27:43

was it out there, Vicky? Canada are

one of the main rivals, they would

1:27:431:27:50

have been one of the favourites. It

was getting a little nervous at

1:27:501:27:54

times?

Yes, but we spoke about that

in the pre-game, and we focused on

1:27:541:28:01

our shots one at a time, and they

all came together nicely.

Lauren, we

1:28:011:28:08

always talk about one game at a

time, but you're now into the

1:28:081:28:11

semifinals, how do you prepare for

that?

It is a new part of the

1:28:111:28:16

competition and we will regroup for

the semifinals and try to come out

1:28:161:28:18

as strong as we can, see who we are

playing and see how we frame it and

1:28:181:28:23

try to come out strong and build on

the last performance.

Eve

1:28:231:28:31

try to come out strong and build on

the last performance.

Eve, it is a

1:28:311:28:31

massive shock, the women in Canada

have never not made a medal at the

1:28:311:28:37

Olympics, how much is that going

forward?

We knew the field was

1:28:371:28:45

strong, there are ten teams capable

of getting a medal, and each team,

1:28:451:28:50

we went out there and played their

own game and concentrated on

1:28:501:28:55

ourselves. I understand how you

think Canada are one of the top

1:28:551:28:58

nations, but as a team, we

concentrated on our performance and

1:28:581:29:02

we will take whoever we have in the

semifinals.

There is a pretty good

1:29:021:29:06

chance that it might be Sweden. How

would you fancy that?

We're open to

1:29:061:29:13

any team. We had a really close game

with Sweden in the round-robin, and

1:29:131:29:18

we always have close games when we

play against Anna.

And no more

1:29:181:29:28

jumping up and down on the ice!

I

promise!

1:29:281:29:36

It was tense stuff, I was jumping up

and then! A disappointing 10-4

1:29:381:29:46

defeat for the men's team against

the USA, which means they will have

1:29:461:29:49

to come through another match before

securing their place in the

1:29:491:29:54

semifinals.

1:29:541:29:54

securing their place in the

semifinals. Kyle Smith is with Steve

1:29:541:29:55

Cram. You must be frustrated, the

opportunity to get to the semifinal

1:29:551:30:01

has gone.

Yes, just a couple of

chances we did not convert one,

1:30:011:30:09

disappointing performance.

Why do

you think that happened?

Not sure,

1:30:091:30:15

sometimes it is just not your day,

and we struggle to create anything,

1:30:151:30:20

we got a couple of fortunate steels,

but did not make enough of their

1:30:201:30:28

simpler shots to put pressure on.

Give up a couple of simple shots, a

1:30:281:30:36

simple two and a simple three.

The

key is to come back, tie-break match

1:30:361:30:40

against Switzerland, you beat them

in the round-robin. All still to

1:30:401:30:45

play for.

Definitely, almost the

same situation, we have two when to

1:30:451:30:50

get to the semifinals. -- we have

two when.

As skip, you win together

1:30:501:30:58

and lose together, what will you do

tonight?

We will talk about the game

1:30:581:31:03

and what we could have done

differently and what we felt went

1:31:031:31:06

right and wrong. There are a few

things to discuss.

1:31:061:31:13

Good luck tomorrow.

This is what it means come here are

1:31:141:31:18

the final standings after the nine

round-robin matches. Canada, Sweden

1:31:181:31:25

and the USA head through, Team GB

and Switzerland play in a play-off

1:31:251:31:30

match to determine who will take the

fourth spot in the semifinal and

1:31:301:31:34

that match will be played at

midnight tonight. That's a late run

1:31:341:31:39

for you back at home but it will be

another tense day at the Curling

1:31:391:31:43

Centre. Someone who has had to live

through it all today

1:31:431:31:47

Centre. Someone who has had to live

through it all today is Jackie

1:31:471:31:48

Lockhart who has been part of the

commentary team. I'm delighted to

1:31:481:31:53

see her now. We will start with the

men, really tough defeat, what went

1:31:531:31:56

wrong today?

They just didn't bring

their A-game to to that game. They

1:31:561:32:02

had chances but they weren't making

the opportunities with them and poor

1:32:021:32:07

Kyle, he had such a disappointing

draw in the fifth end where he gave

1:32:071:32:12

up the chance and the USA got three.

And after that, they were chasing

1:32:121:32:17

all the time and it wasn't working

for them. I guess the guys have done

1:32:171:32:21

the right thing, they were very

fortunate that whether they lost or

1:32:211:32:24

won the game, they were still in

with a chance. We have to place it

1:32:241:32:28

on and in the tie-breaker and that

isn't going to be an easy game. --

1:32:281:32:34

we have two plates Switzerland. The

guys will, and regroup and look at

1:32:341:32:40

the strategy and hopefully we will

be all right.

Everyone has already

1:32:401:32:46

played each other by the time you

get this stage, Switzerland where

1:32:461:32:48

Kyle

1:32:481:32:54

Kyle Smith's first match, how much

does that count heading back into

1:32:541:33:00

facing them tomorrow?

Probably not

much, this is a completely different

1:33:001:33:05

game, a knockout stage, when

progresses and loser gets nothing.

1:33:051:33:08

That's a difficult position to be in

but it's a good position to be in

1:33:081:33:13

because he got to give it to all.

Let's hope the guys can board

1:33:131:33:19

themselves back from this defeat and

we can see a strong performance.

We

1:33:191:33:23

saw them bounce back from that

defeat against South Korea in the

1:33:231:33:26

group stages so let's hope we can do

that again. It means if they do get

1:33:261:33:32

through, they have to play their

semifinal on the same day so it

1:33:321:33:35

would be a massive day for Kyle

Smith and his rink.

Yes, they have

1:33:351:33:39

to rest and make sure they have the

full strength for them. Let's hope

1:33:391:33:45

it's a two-game date because it

would be great for Great Britain.

1:33:451:33:50

Let's have a look at Eve Muirhead's

rink, that was a particularly tense

1:33:501:33:56

final end, what a great win.

I'm

always very confident, I talked

1:33:561:34:00

about patients during the game. And

her team always come good in the

1:34:001:34:06

last three ends, and that's exactly

what Eve did today. She had to pull

1:34:061:34:13

off a cracker of a shot in the ninth

to make it difficult for Rachel

1:34:131:34:17

Homan but I think she missed

opportunity, she should have taken

1:34:171:34:21

an easy double that she had an

opportunity and she didn't and she

1:34:211:34:27

gave the game to us. But having said

that, Great Britain played a

1:34:271:34:31

fantastic last three ends.

It looks

like Sweden next. We have all seen

1:34:311:34:38

how devastated they were three --

four years ago to not get through,

1:34:381:34:46

how much will that affect them today

in the play-off match?

We know that

1:34:461:34:50

Eve wants nothing more than that

gold medal, and we have talked about

1:34:501:34:53

that semifinal game and how strong

they have to be. She's coming up

1:34:531:35:01

against Sweden, they have been huge

rivals over the last few years. I

1:35:011:35:04

like to think that Eve has got an

idea of what it's ever happened, and

1:35:041:35:12

she has got Anna's number, the fact

that Eve lost the semifinal will be

1:35:121:35:18

playing on her mind but I'm sure the

psychologist they have had will be

1:35:181:35:21

working on this. They will be

positive because they are peaking at

1:35:211:35:24

the right time and sport is all

about timing.

You rest up as well as

1:35:241:35:30

our athletes because you have some

more drama to come in the Curling

1:35:301:35:34

Centre. Thanks the joining us.

1:35:341:35:36

If you're just joining us, good

morning from day 12 here in

1:35:531:35:57

Pyeongchang and we have already had

some drama so far today. Here's a

1:35:571:36:00

look at the headlines.

In the women's downhill, Sofia

1:36:001:36:08

Goggia made history by becoming

Italy's e-mail downhill in a big

1:36:081:36:15

champion. 2010 gold medallist and

pre-event favourite Lindsey Vonn had

1:36:151:36:18

to settle for bronze.

Canada's Brady Lamont took gold in

1:36:181:36:26

the men's's ski cross competition

which delivered its usual

1:36:261:36:32

excitement.

It was the Russia show as the figure

1:36:321:36:36

skating women's singles competition

got an away. Alena Saget over the

1:36:361:36:41

dues the world record -- Alena Saget

over beating Jenny

1:36:411:36:48

women booked their spot in the

Olympic semifinals, a victory which

1:36:541:36:58

came in the added bonus of

eliminating their opponents from the

1:36:581:37:01

tournament. A disappointing 10-4

defeat against the USA means the

1:37:011:37:07

Great Britain men will have to win a

play-off match tomorrow to qualify

1:37:071:37:14

for the semifinals, that match is

against Switzerland.

1:37:141:37:17

And in an incredibly high-quality

convocation GB snowboarder Billy

1:37:171:37:22

Morgan bag a spot in Saturday's big

air final. Carlos Garcia Knight

1:37:221:37:29

topped the pile from New Zealand.

There was lots of excitement today

1:37:291:37:36

ahead of the women's downhill

because Lindsey Vonn is back. Gold

1:37:361:37:42

medallist in Vancouver eight years

ago, she missed Sochi four years ago

1:37:421:37:45

with an injury and was aiming to

regain her title in Pyeongchang in

1:37:451:37:52

what is likely to be her last

Olympic games. Mikaela Shiffrin

1:37:521:37:58

decided not to race in the downhill

ahead of the combined so her biggest

1:37:581:38:04

rival was likely to be Sofia Goggia,

who had already won on this track in

1:38:041:38:08

a World Cup event in March. It all

comes down to one run so let's see

1:38:081:38:12

the best of the action.

1:38:121:38:19

The 2018 Olympic women's downhill,

here, is underway.

1:38:191:38:29

here, is underway. Make no mistake,

Connie Huetter as she comes onto the

1:38:291:38:37

Dragon Rich, is a serious threat for

success today. Nice soft landing

1:38:371:38:45

first jump. A little less direct

than the men's downhill. The control

1:38:451:38:52

gates are all read to date with the

blue line under foot on the track to

1:38:521:38:56

aid the athlete's anticipation.

Slightly wobbly after landing but

1:38:561:39:02

she corrected with plenty of time.

She won the first downhill of the

1:39:021:39:08

World Cup season back in late

November in Lake Louise in Canada.

1:39:081:39:16

Potentially the best chance for

Austrian success today. The Olympic

1:39:161:39:24

champion four years ago, was beaten

to fill the -- Raqqa silver

1:39:241:39:33

position, she has gone home, she had

decided that the track doesn't suit

1:39:331:39:38

her. That opened the door for one of

the younger Austrians to take her

1:39:381:39:49

place, but Huetter is their best

date for Austria. They have had

1:39:491:39:53

three training runs in the baled up

to race day. -- build-up. One was

1:39:531:40:01

slightly... Goodness me! Racing

snowplough for Connie Suter, she got

1:40:011:40:09

her ski tips crossed and that's not

how she wanted to fitness finish

1:40:091:40:14

with a proper scare.

The first of the Swiss, Corine

1:40:141:40:23

Souter is away. Went well in

training, particularly on Monday

1:40:231:40:28

when she set the fifth fastest time.

Suter flies, makes the term

1:40:281:40:41

accurately. Now she gets bounced

around, a bit of high-speed steering

1:40:411:40:48

pivot, you don't see that that often

in downhill. The good manoeuvre from

1:40:481:40:56

current Souter,

1:40:561:40:58

-- from Suter, giving her the lead

over Huetter. Connie Huetter leads

1:41:011:41:08

the way for Austria. On the course,

Suter for Switzerland. 31 metres of

1:41:081:41:19

flight. It was green all the way but

here is the first red Line.

1:41:191:41:25

Similar track to the one the men

raced on, a slight variation in the

1:41:291:41:33

same, they go a different way around

the magic tree. Suter pushed outside

1:41:331:41:41

the racing line. She is now the

right side of the time. No point to

1:41:411:41:49

seven in front. The Austrian had a

big mistake on the finish. If Suter

1:41:491:41:57

finishes cleanly, she may well ski

in the first position. And she does.

1:41:571:42:00

Comfortably. Three quarters of the

second.

1:42:001:42:05

Tina Weirather is whether -- ready

to go, she was a long-time leader in

1:42:091:42:17

the super-g, she was pipped

ultimately by the snowboarder who

1:42:171:42:26

was not racing today. She's gone

over to start training for the

1:42:261:42:30

parallel giant slalom Olympic

snowboard event. Fast and furious

1:42:301:42:36

start here for Tina Weirather, the

28-year-old from lection stein. --

1:42:361:42:44

Lipson stein.

1:42:441:42:45

She is now .34 in front. She will

have to make this next sweeping

1:42:491:42:59

turn, slightly airborne, might not

have anticipated that but didn't

1:42:591:43:03

seem to do too much damage. That's a

nice Suter, executed perfectly by

1:43:031:43:10

the multi-talented athlete. She has

been regularly on the podium. She's

1:43:101:43:18

throwing it down. A bronze medallist

in the super-g, hoping to go into

1:43:181:43:26

early gold medal spot in the main

event, the women's downhill. No real

1:43:261:43:34

errors, her skis have obviously got

the preparation right and she is

1:43:341:43:41

miles ahead of Corine Suter. She's

just got to stay on her feet. It's

1:43:411:43:48

straight from here on in, along

jump, and she leads the way in the

1:43:481:43:55

Olympic downhill. Suter's top spot

in last long. Tina Weirather to

1:43:551:44:04

first. Sofia Goggia is ready to go.

The best downhill of the season so

1:44:041:44:12

far. She leads the World Cup

downhill standings, she has had two

1:44:121:44:17

victories and a couple of podiums as

well. She is high on the Dragon

1:44:171:44:25

ridge, she won the test event here

this year, -- last year, she had a

1:44:251:44:35

big mistake in the super-g but she

has been doing well in her training

1:44:351:44:38

runs and represents a real threat to

Lindsey Vonn's chance to win gold.

1:44:381:44:44

She had left herself work to do,

that's dangerous. The wind didn't

1:44:441:44:49

get under the ski tips and cause her

to crash. That's the side of the

1:44:491:44:55

commitment Goggia is putting into

this. She says that when she gets up

1:44:551:44:58

in the morning and walks around, her

knee is sore, it takes ten minutes

1:44:581:45:04

to be able to walk and climbing the

stairs is an issue but when she gets

1:45:041:45:09

in the start gate, she forgets all

about it. She's focused. That was a

1:45:091:45:14

good job. It's that Goggia back in

the Chase here.

1:45:141:45:21

104 kilometres per hour. Smooth,

accurate returns for Sofia Goggia.

1:45:261:45:31

The 25-year-old Italian hit the

control date.

1:45:311:45:39

She could ski into gold medal

position here. She leads the way, it

1:45:471:45:53

is a big margin in favour of the

Italian! 0.63 might bring her a

1:45:531:45:58

medal today. Will it be gold?

1:45:581:46:03

Italian! 0.63 might bring her a

medal today. Will it be gold? This

1:46:031:46:06

was one of the risky moves that she

pulled. Straight down onto the tales

1:46:061:46:11

of the skis. Incredible strength.

Lindsey Vonn is already a legend,

1:46:111:46:18

whatever happens today. The most

successful female ski racer of

1:46:181:46:23

all-time. 81 World Cup victories.

She looks to hunt

1:46:231:46:32

She looks to hunt down the all-time

record. She could add another couple

1:46:321:46:34

of World Cup victories at the end of

the season or the start of next. The

1:46:341:46:40

focus this season is all about

today.

1:46:401:46:51

today. She has trained really well.

An army of technicians working on

1:46:511:46:57

her. She's fit, fast unfocused. A

great turn at Paradise for Lindsey

1:46:571:47:07

Vonn.

1:47:071:47:12

Vonn. One of the oldest competitors

in the competition, 33 years old.

1:47:131:47:18

She's four tenths of a second slower

than Sofia Goggia. They have been

1:47:181:47:26

level in so many World Cups this

season,

1:47:261:47:34

season, with Vonn winning them. She

still has to find time. Have a

1:47:351:47:42

second off the pace of Sofia Goggia.

The top two separated by 0.63.

1:47:421:47:49

Straight line all the way to the

finish. She is crossed the line, and

1:47:491:47:54

it is silver. Sofia Goggia holds on.

No gold medal for Lindsey Vonn, in

1:47:541:48:04

what is almost certainly her final

Olympic Games. Final words of

1:48:041:48:11

instruction for Alice McKennis, from

the United States.

1:48:111:48:22

the United States. McKennis starts

fast.

1:48:241:48:29

A lovely jump. So far, so good. Nine

hundredths of a second up. The first

1:48:351:48:52

splits have been green Alice

McKennis, who is known as the

1:48:521:48:56

alligator.

1:48:561:49:01

alligator. She raced in Whistler

eight years ago, but did not finish.

1:49:051:49:10

What a stark. -- what the start.

This time, the split is less

1:49:101:49:23

encouraging.

1:49:231:49:28

She desperately tries to hold onto

the racing line. Sofia

1:49:351:49:43

the racing line. Sofia Goggia is

0.82 ahead.

1:49:431:49:49

She has gone into fourth position.

Alice McKennis is just out of the

1:49:571:50:02

medals. And you must.

1:50:021:50:08

Mowinckel, Norway's best. She was

13th in the Super-G. She has been

1:50:221:50:28

consistent in World Cup downhill

races this season. Five times in the

1:50:281:50:32

top ten, but never better than six.

She has had a fantastic season. Was

1:50:321:50:44

one of the middle order athletes

until the end of 2017 when she

1:50:441:50:50

started to show some fine form. A

huge turn for Mowinckel.

1:50:501:51:01

huge turn for Mowinckel. They have

had a fine Alpine programme, one

1:51:011:51:06

gold, three silvers and one bronze.

Mowinckel contributed to that, on

1:51:061:51:13

the slalom.

1:51:131:51:18

the slalom. At end of a second off

the pace. Mowinckel is bringing her

1:51:201:51:24

a game to the biggest race of the

season. The top three are only

1:51:241:51:33

separated by 0.63.

1:51:331:51:41

She's not far-off, Mowinckel of

Norway may well move in amongst the

1:51:411:51:47

medals. Can she go quickly enough?

Slightly wide. She has gone into

1:51:471:51:56

silver! Nine hundredths of a second.

1:51:561:52:04

Weirather smiling through the pain

because she has been put out of the

1:52:111:52:14

medals.

What are they for Sofia Goggia, the

1:52:141:52:21

first Italian to win the Olympic

downhill medal. It is a second

1:52:211:52:28

silver for Mowinckel, and the

champion eight years ago, Lindsey

1:52:281:52:32

Vonn, goes home with a bronze for

downhill in 2018.

1:52:321:52:39

So, a bit of history for Italy, with

Sofia Goggia taking the gold in the

1:52:391:52:44

downhill. In what looks like her

last Winter Olympics, Lindsey Vonn

1:52:441:52:48

had to settle for bronze. She spoke

to Chemmy Alcott.

1:52:481:52:53

had to settle for bronze. She spoke

to Chemmy Alcott.

1:52:531:52:55

You overcame all of the pressure and

expectation, and you got a bronze.

1:52:551:52:59

It was intense and mostly it was

intense because I just wanted to win

1:52:591:53:04

for my grandfather. It is hard to

process it is my last Olympic

1:53:041:53:10

downhill race. Are really want to

keep racing forever. But I can't.

1:53:101:53:19

Knowing your family, your

grandfather would be so happy you

1:53:191:53:22

went out there and did your best.

I

hope so.

1:53:221:53:34

So, I

1:53:391:53:40

So, I spoke to your dad earlier, he

was here to support you, he did not

1:53:401:53:47

care what position you finished, as

long as you went out there and did

1:53:471:53:51

it.

This shows you are a true

champion. Thank you. I'm sure my dad

1:53:511:53:57

will find something I did wrong! He

loves to be critical. But it meant a

1:53:571:54:03

lot to me that he was here. We had

some rough times, and he was not in

1:54:031:54:12

Vancouver when I won. -- he had some

rough times. It meant a lot that he

1:54:121:54:19

was here. We have all been really

emotional because of my grandfather,

1:54:191:54:22

so it meant a lot of us to be here

together. Are really emotional day.

1:54:221:54:29

I am really proud to walk away with

a medal. It may not be gold, and a

1:54:291:54:34

lot of people will say that I should

have got the gold, but it is so hard

1:54:341:54:39

to win or get a medal at the

Olympics, and I am proud of my

1:54:391:54:43

performance, so I am walking away

very happy.

Graham Bell joins me

1:54:431:54:48

now. Really emotional scenes at the

end from Lindsey Vonn. The emotional

1:54:481:54:52

side of it from her grandfather, who

passed away, but to come back from

1:54:521:54:58

injury and when another Olympic

medal, and what she says is the

1:54:581:55:01

final downhill.

Yes, the Olympics

was very emotional for her, she came

1:55:011:55:06

early, went to the opening ceremony,

and she was crying in her first

1:55:061:55:11

press conference she gave, talking

about her grandfather, and she was

1:55:111:55:17

trying to do it for him. Yes, she

will be disappointed with bronze,

1:55:171:55:21

but she knows this is her last

chance and will be glad she got a

1:55:211:55:25

medal.

She will take a mate to sleep

on it and then she will look back

1:55:251:55:29

and look on it and realised to when

and Olympic medal, which is

1:55:291:55:32

incredibly difficult, but given the

injuries she had, her body is

1:55:321:55:37

creaking.

It is, and it is more for

her to do in the sport. She will

1:55:371:55:41

raise another season. She's on 81

World Cup tables, and is chasing the

1:55:411:55:53

record of 86. She also wants to race

at Lake Louise, so that is another

1:55:531:56:00

call on her bucket list.

For Italy,

what a great run from Sofia Goggia.

1:56:001:56:09

Yes, she took more risk and attacked

it. She likes it when it is

1:56:091:56:13

difficult, rough and dangerous. A

real bundle of energy, Sofia Goggia.

1:56:131:56:21

If anyone was up in the middle of

the late, they showed the DT of you

1:56:211:56:25

racing the women's track because it

is different from the men's track.

1:56:251:56:31

Yes, it was on the scene

1:56:311:56:37

Yes, it was on the scene -- same

piste, and the men's was not quite

1:56:391:56:49

as difficult as the women's going

over the edge, which made it twice

1:56:491:56:54

as difficult coming into the tree

section. That is where the race was

1:56:541:57:00

ultimately won and lost.

Lots of

drama today, we are expecting way

1:57:001:57:04

more tomorrow. We'd have not only

the men's slalom but also the women

1:57:041:57:09

combined.

1:57:091:57:17

combined.

Marcel Hirscher will be

joining the exclusive club, only

1:57:171:57:21

three

1:57:211:57:26

have won multiple medals in the same

games. Marcel Hirscher will

1:57:341:57:41

hopefully win two technical events

and the combined, but the slalom

1:57:411:57:45

will be tough for him because there

are few good slalom skiers that can

1:57:451:57:50

challenge him, particularly Henry

Kristofferson. And also Dave Ryding,

1:57:501:57:58

he could be in the mix.

Yes, what

does Team GB's Dave Ryding have?

1:57:581:58:07

does Team GB's Dave Ryding have?

He

won the first run of the first World

1:58:071:58:09

Cup.

1:58:091:58:14

Cup. He also won the second run in

another competition, so if he can

1:58:171:58:22

put them together there is every

chance. If you can just really go

1:58:221:58:25

for it, that is ultimately what he

has to do. Not worry about placing,

1:58:251:58:30

just go flat out for a medal because

if you think about it, there is one

1:58:301:58:35

medal up for grabs. Marcel Hirscher

and Henry Kristofferson compete as

1:58:351:58:44

well as the shed, they'd is only one

medal left, and they all have to go

1:58:441:58:47

for it. We're going now to the

Hockey Centre because the men's

1:58:471:58:56

quarterfinals get under way today.

It was the Olympic Athletes from

1:58:561:58:58

Russia, Canada and

1:58:581:58:59

It was the Olympic Athletes from

Russia, Canada and Sweden who

1:58:591:59:01

qualified as group winners. The

Czech Republic bypassed the

1:59:011:59:04

qualification round as the best

placed second place. Fore play-offs

1:59:041:59:09

took place yesterday. That made up

the final eight. We will now head to

1:59:091:59:16

the Gangneung Hockey Centre because

Norway are taking on the Olympic at

1:59:161:59:21

the from Russia to take on a place.

COMMENTATOR: Just relieved the

1:59:211:59:30

pressure. A great finish!

1:59:301:59:40

pressure. A great finish! Where have

the lead.

1:59:401:59:46

the lead. Norway looked comfortable,

and all it took was one breakdown.

1:59:481:59:55

The Russians are on the board. I

wonder how much he saw, he has had

1:59:562:00:04

problems with his eyes. He's rubbing

his eyes. What I shot that was.

2:00:042:00:12

his eyes. What I shot that was.

This

just goes to show, the Olympic from

2:00:132:00:18

Russia do not need much, just...

2:00:182:00:28

Russia do not need much, just...

The

fans are happy. The Russian fans,

2:00:282:00:32

that is, because the OAR are leading

by 1-0. The Norwegians fighting as

2:00:322:00:37

hard as they can to stay in the

game. OAR are the strongest of the

2:00:372:00:44

teens by some distance.

2:00:442:00:54

OAR are wearing the traditional

redshirts. They have a flag in the

2:00:562:01:04

locker room saying, big red machine,

as a throwback to the old Soviet red

2:01:042:01:11

Army teams. They were so successful.

The are the favourites in this game

2:01:112:01:19

to go through, and no doubt the most

interesting party at the Czech

2:01:192:01:27

Republic.

2:01:272:01:34

They are trying to work this one

download.

2:01:382:01:44

download. That woman thrown a minute

and it will be held on by Lars

2:01:452:01:51

Haugen, a terrific netminder. Very

busy so far, as has Mikhail

2:01:512:02:01

Grigorenko, scoring the only goal so

far.

12 shots fired at Lars Haugen

2:02:012:02:06

already, he had some I issued a few

minutes into the game. We saw him

2:02:062:02:13

blinking his eyes and trying to

splash them with water. And right

2:02:132:02:19

after that the first OAR goal was

scored. He was just talking to the

2:02:192:02:23

team doctor. Hopefully that's

rectified.

A penalty coming here, a

2:02:232:02:31

high stick.

Sergey Kalinin got his

stick up in the corner. Took his

2:02:312:02:41

stick, pardon me.

2:02:412:02:46

stick, pardon me. Niklas Roest got

him. You can see it come all the way

2:02:472:02:54

around, right there. And were going

to get our first look at this OAR

2:02:542:03:01

power play which is extremely

dangerous.

So far, a couple of power

2:03:012:03:06

play goals for the OAR and they're

facing a penalty kill that has

2:03:062:03:16

conceded four times, there was some

negotiation as to who should be on

2:03:162:03:19

the ice.

A late line change from

Norway, the rest do not like that.

2:03:192:03:24

The roll is, after the vessel, if

you are the home team, the referee

2:03:242:03:33

sticks his arm in the air and then

you have got five seconds to get

2:03:332:03:41

whoever you want on the ice.

2:03:412:03:48

whoever you want on the ice. Looking

for the chance out in front, and

2:03:482:03:53

wide. That comes off the shoulder of

Kaprizov.

The slight deflection off

2:03:532:04:05

that there, he looks right to the

middle of the ice to Kaprizov.

2:04:052:04:13

Although back on the blue line. Can

they finish at? They can!

2:04:172:04:25

they finish at? They can! Great net

presents from Kaprizov. OAR have a

2:04:282:04:31

second goal of the game. And they

are looking really, really strong.

2:04:312:04:38

Smiling, quite rightly. They've

taken this Olympic quarterfinal by

2:04:382:04:43

the scruff of the neck and giving

this one a real kick in the right

2:04:432:04:47

direction.

A little bit fortunate

with the

2:04:472:04:57

with the shot, from Mozyakin, went

to the sticks, he recognised that

2:04:572:05:02

the netminder Haugen was out of

position, as he was sliding back to

2:05:022:05:06

get to his post, it bounced off his

pad and in. If you look at the two

2:05:062:05:14

goals, one deflects off the linesman

right to Grigorenko and the other of

2:05:142:05:21

the netminder, unfortunately, former

Norwegian perspective.

I'm sure

2:05:212:05:24

people would say that you make your

own luck in the situations. And if

2:05:242:05:30

you put rubber on the net,

opportunities will come your way.

2:05:302:05:38

Offside given, so the second goal

going to Gusev on the angle, far

2:05:442:05:53

from a thing of beauty.

We saw that

exact play turn into a goal earlier

2:05:532:06:01

in the tournament, that was Gusev to

Mozyakin, and that was the play they

2:06:012:06:04

tried. Mozyakin's shot got turned

right back to Gusev who banked it

2:06:042:06:10

in.

Norway trying to come back in,

and they now really have two hang on

2:06:102:06:18

a little bit here. They need to make

sure they get out of this period

2:06:182:06:23

with no more than a 2-goal

disadvantage.

When you've only

2:06:232:06:29

scored four goals in four games, and

are already down two, that's going

2:06:292:06:35

to be really difficult.

This may be

an opportunity to make something

2:06:352:06:40

happen. But not quite. At the

2:06:402:06:48

happen. But not quite. At the other

end, going after it. Right now, the

2:06:492:06:55

OAR are more physical, they are

bigger and stronger and their

2:06:552:07:04

attacking ways are causing problems.

Let's be clear, when surprised by

2:07:042:07:07

any means by the score, not

surprised at how dominating the OAR

2:07:072:07:12

team has been. They lead 15-1 in the

shops department. This was a

2:07:122:07:18

mismatch on paper and it's really

turning into everything we have

2:07:182:07:21

expected so far.

Oh, wow! The way

open up for a second. And Norway

2:07:212:07:31

could not find the net. Desperate

defending.

2:07:312:07:37

defending. Stefan Sorensen claiming

he didn't Tillerson.

-- hear the

2:07:402:07:45

whistle. He went right onto the tape

of a Norwegian forward there. There

2:07:452:07:54

was a play, it wasn't connecting

tape to tape, or it very easily

2:07:542:07:58

could have been 2-1, and that would

have raised a few eyebrows. Lands

2:07:582:08:05

right onto the tape. And then Stefan

Forest and couldn't get his

2:08:052:08:13

backhand.

Desperately diving,

spreading his six at seven frame.

A

2:08:132:08:21

good job from Andrei Zubarev, the

defender, to get his stick in there.

2:08:212:08:35

He's getting a bit of call downtime

while they clear off some of the

2:08:352:08:39

snow which is on the ice. They have

three of these little snow breaks.

2:08:392:08:46

And it makes a big difference,

because the ice really does cut up

2:08:462:08:50

and snow gets lonely, which slows

the

2:08:502:08:57

Down.

OAR into the zone. Just

looking around, trying to see what

2:09:002:09:10

the best option was. And now

there'll put it at the back of the

2:09:102:09:13

net.

2:09:132:09:19

Gusev, back door X macro well,

Datsyuk denied one, I don't know how

2:09:192:09:30

he didn't get that in.

What a pass

from Gusev, remarkable, not many

2:09:302:09:37

people even try that pass.

He loves

to move that puck. It will be tidied

2:09:372:09:49

up by the Norwegians. He is a

remarkable player, Gusev. Such

2:09:492:09:58

wonderful vision. And the speed at

which this OAR team move the puck,

2:09:582:10:11

tape to tape, there's a real snap

and bite to everything they do.

When

2:10:112:10:16

you handle

2:10:162:10:22

you handle pucks this easily, they

do it very quickly and assertively.

2:10:222:10:26

They were well rested coming into

this game having had three full days

2:10:262:10:31

rest. They will happen practising,

of course. But that makes life very

2:10:312:10:39

easy for the coaching staff. And for

the players as well who are getting

2:10:392:10:46

used to the tournament format, the

food, the difference of life in the

2:10:462:10:50

Olympic Village.

2:10:502:10:57

I mean, you are looking at the

number of millionaires out there on

2:10:582:11:04

the ice and absolute top money.

Someone like Pavel Datsyuk, or Ilya

2:11:042:11:14

Kablukov, they have earned millions

in the leagues in America. And there

2:11:142:11:20

contracts aren't much more when they

moved back to Russia to the

2:11:202:11:25

continental league which is the

second best league in the world.

2:11:252:11:33

That was Grigorenko looking for his

second of the game. Into the final

2:11:332:11:39

two minutes of the first period.

Good job releasing here, any time

2:11:392:11:46

they can catch their breath, and

right back at it comes the red Army.

2:11:462:11:54

Ivan Telegin is not possession and

Norway can -- gives up possession

2:11:542:12:00

and Norway can get to the red line.

They cannot force at home. The one

2:12:002:12:08

question you have about this OAR

team is the netminding.

2:12:082:12:18

team is the netminding. He has only

given up four goals, the silly

2:12:182:12:25

Kuchar skin. They were not good

ones. -- Vasily Koshechkin.

2:12:252:12:31

A penalty coming for OAR. A snapshot

from

2:12:422:12:52

from Gusev, and Voynov scores! And

with 30 seconds remaining, the big

2:12:522:13:00

red machine is steam-rolling right

over the top of Norway. They are

2:13:002:13:05

heading to the semifinals, and a

date of the Czech Republic. And also

2:13:052:13:11

show of their skills and power. --

an awesome show. What a first period

2:13:112:13:16

from the Russians.

There's going to

be a penalty coming up. But before

2:13:162:13:22

the OAR team can even get a sixth

attacker out on the ice, the puck

2:13:222:13:26

comes back from Gusev to Voynov, and

a terrifically placed shot. Just a

2:13:262:13:34

snapshot, not a laser beam, but just

out of the reach of the blocker

2:13:342:13:38

Haugen.

2:13:382:13:45

Well, the Norwegians have an awful

lot of contemplating to do as they

2:13:472:13:52

headed down to the locker room in 20

seconds. What exactly can they do?

2:13:522:13:59

What can they come up with to quell

this sea of red attacking play

2:13:592:14:08

that's coming, wave after wave after

wave?

It really is impressive. It

2:14:082:14:13

took them a little while to get

going. But this OAR team has too

2:14:132:14:19

much talent and we knew it wouldn't

be long until they show that there

2:14:192:14:24

might against this Norwegian club.

A

good face-off win and that will be

2:14:242:14:33

played around the boards.

2:14:332:14:34

I think he was considering a shot on

goal there.

I don't know if he

2:14:382:14:44

thought he had player racing down.

Nonetheless, 3.6 seconds, and if

2:14:442:14:53

Norway can win a face-off, there

could be a chance.

2:14:532:15:02

No chance for Norway, can't win the

draw. Well, what a first period it

2:15:072:15:13

is for the Olympics athletes from

Russia. In the quarterfinals, they

2:15:132:15:17

have taken control, goals from

Grigorenko, Gusev and Voynov mean

2:15:172:15:25

Norway have plenty to do, lots of

work to do in the locker room to try

2:15:252:15:28

and figure out a way to get back in

the game. A trail OAR.

2:15:282:15:32

Yes, the Olympic Athletes from

Russia. Earlier today one of the

2:15:422:15:48

other quarterfinals involving the

USA and the Czech Republic took

2:15:482:15:52

place. The USA not able to select

any players from the NHL, but still

2:15:522:15:56

coming here with high hopes of a

medal. Let us get the best of the

2:15:562:16:01

action from the quarterfinal with

Seth Bennett and Ken Simpson.

2:16:012:16:11

Seth Bennett and Ken Simpson. Three

assists yesterday for Terry. And a

2:16:112:16:17

score as! Another shot.

2:16:172:16:27

score as! Another shot.

When you're

hot, you're hot. This is a harmless

2:16:282:16:34

little short.

2:16:342:16:44

And they score! Rate of the

face-off. The fans are delighted.

2:16:562:17:04

And the pressure has been coming and

coming for them.

Smart play.

2:17:042:17:15

What amazing plea from Jan Kolar, he

knows there is no one there.

The

2:17:292:17:36

rebound not taken.

2:17:362:17:41

rebound not taken. And they score!

The pressure is on, the US unable to

2:17:412:17:46

get off the ice.

2:17:462:17:51

get off the ice. Kundratek gives the

Czech Republic the lead in the

2:17:572:18:00

quarterfinal.

2:18:002:18:05

quarterfinal. Also a good job from

Mertl. It goes from bad to worse for

2:18:062:18:13

John McCarthy.

2:18:132:18:19

John McCarthy. A short-handed! Jim

Slater levels again for the USA.

2:18:212:18:32

What a breakdown from the Czech

Republic.

2:18:322:18:41

Republic. O'Neill brings Slater. And

he flicks it

2:18:412:18:48

he flicks it passed the gloves of

markers the. -- the gloves of

2:18:492:18:55

Francouz. Francouz cannot quite get

out. An enormous goal, as they have

2:18:552:19:04

had nothing going for them in the

second period.

The final 15 seconds.

2:19:042:19:18

The Americans will have 40 seconds

of 413 coming up. We're going to

2:19:202:19:27

overtime. One of these teams will be

going home shortly.

2:19:272:19:41

We're going to game-winning shots in

the first quarterfinal. Cubicle. The

2:19:472:19:54

Czech Republic are going to

2:19:542:19:59

shoot first, there will be a cross

next to his name?

2:20:112:20:27

Bourque for the Americans. That

stopped.

2:20:302:20:36

stopped. A big move, a big goal!

Koukal scores, first man on the

2:20:412:20:49

board in the quarterfinal. The man

of the moment, Ryan Granato.

2:20:492:21:03

of the moment, Ryan Granato. -- one.

Kolar??, deflects wide.

2:21:032:21:16

Kolar??, deflects wide. Another big

save.

2:21:182:21:29

Incomes Terry. Architect said, and

another save. Strong with that right

2:21:312:21:39

leg.

2:21:392:21:45

Brilliant in the shoot out, and the

Americans can hold their heads high.

2:22:062:22:09

They have had a great tournament but

now they have to go home, and the

2:22:092:22:17

Czechs

2:22:172:22:23

Czechs guarantee a medal. The Czech

Republic are through to the

2:22:232:22:26

semifinals. We will see who will

join them a little later. If you are

2:22:262:22:32

just waking up, here is what you

have missed. Here are the headlines

2:22:322:22:37

on day 12. In the women's downhill,

Sofia Goggia made history by

2:22:372:22:42

becoming Italy's first-ever female

downhill Olympic champion. 2010 gold

2:22:422:22:48

medallist and three event favourite

Lindsey Vonn settled for a bronze.

2:22:482:22:50

It was the Russia show as the figure

skating singles competition got

2:22:502:22:56

under way. There was a world-record

short programme overshadowing her

2:22:562:23:04

Olympic rival and company treat.

Great Britain's women got a win over

2:23:042:23:14

Canada to book their space in the

semifinals, with the added bonus of

2:23:142:23:20

eliminating the opponents from the

tournament. A disappointing 10-4

2:23:202:23:24

defeat for the men against the USA

means they will need to win a

2:23:242:23:28

play-off match against Switzerland

tomorrow to qualify for the

2:23:282:23:32

Pyeongchang 2018 semifinals.

2:23:322:23:38

Pyeongchang 2018 semifinals. In an

incredibly high-quality

2:23:382:23:40

qualification, GB snowboarder Billy

Morgan got a spot in Saturday's big

2:23:402:23:44

E final. The USA top the pile after

scoring 97.5 points on his second

2:23:442:23:51

run. At around 8:45am you can see

the men's team sprint free

2:23:512:24:01

semifinals, including Andrew

Musgrave and Andrew Young, the

2:24:012:24:03

British joule bid peer. That will be

on the red button. -- the British

2:24:032:24:13

peer. We're going to the ski Cross,

added to the Olympic calendar in

2:24:132:24:19

2010 in Vancouver. Always delivers

drama. Four people race against each

2:24:192:24:24

other down a track of twists, turns

and jumps. The first across the

2:24:242:24:30

finish line as the winner. We're

joining Graham Bell and Ed Leigh.

2:24:302:24:40

Lining up in the gates.

2:24:402:24:47

The Russian has played very well.

Radio 1 -- Brady Leman. On the

2:25:042:25:22

outside, and usually opted to choose

the outside lane, Drury. The

2:25:222:25:28

Canadian is so fast, the Russians or

clever.

2:25:282:25:35

clever. Under starter's orders.

2:25:362:25:45

Brady Leman looking good. The

Russian is ahead.

2:25:492:25:55

Russian is ahead. A lot of work to

be done by the Canadians.

The

2:25:592:26:05

Russian has gone! Who can get up

fastest?

2:26:052:26:17

fastest? The Canadian is guaranteed

a medal if he can get off his feet.

2:26:172:26:24

Gash on his feet.

2:26:242:26:29

Gash on his feet. This would be

incredible from Brady Leman. He

2:26:342:26:37

broke his leg ahead of the Winter

Olympic Games eight years ago, and

2:26:372:26:40

he was agonisingly forth four years

ago.

2:26:402:26:52

A gold medal finally for back row

one! What an incredible performance.

2:26:532:27:02

Silver for Bischofberger, the Swiss

leader of the World Cup. He manages

2:27:032:27:06

to turn that form into a medal. And

it is the Russian, Ridzik, working

2:27:062:27:14

his way through.

2:27:142:27:24

his way through.

I think it was draw

who went down. For the Canadians to

2:27:252:27:38

finally get onto an Olympic podium,

and he is on top spot. Board the

2:27:382:27:41

Canadians were out slow.

2:27:412:27:50

Canadians were out slow. Brady Leman

generated great speed for the next

2:27:502:27:56

section. He was in last place going

here.

Bischofberger was right in

2:27:562:28:02

front of his skis, beautifully

positioned.

2:28:022:28:08

positioned. Kevin Drury went down

first. He took out Ridzik at the

2:28:082:28:14

knees.

If it had gone the other way

it probably would have been a

2:28:142:28:19

protest.

2:28:192:28:28

protest. He knew what was at stake.

He was definitely taken out by the

2:28:282:28:38

Canadian in front of him.

Brady

Leman soaking up the jumps down into

2:28:382:28:45

the finishing area. Bischofberger

was so close he could nearly touch

2:28:452:28:53

Brady Leman. But he takes the

silver. And Ridzik for the bronze.

2:28:532:29:00

That is what it means to the

Canadian. Injured in Vancouver,

2:29:002:29:06

fourth place in Sochi and now he is

the Olympic champion.

Epic drama at

2:29:062:29:17

the Snow Park. Graham Bell is

joining the again. That is

2:29:172:29:20

everything you'd expect from ski

cross.

Yes, a lot of crashes in the

2:29:202:29:25

first round, some bad injuries. It

is the sporting equivalent of a

2:29:252:29:29

fight in a pub car park! Anything

goes. The French racer, a quick

2:29:292:29:36

update on the injury, he broke his

tibia. He overflew the jump.

2:29:362:29:46

tibia. He overflew the jump. Has

concussion, and the

2:29:462:29:52

concussion, and the worst was the

Canadian, he got the jump wrong, had

2:29:522:29:59

his weight back, and he was

sideways, ended up coming down, and

2:29:592:30:04

he has broken his pelvis. Car crash

TV. Then we had a crash in the final

2:30:042:30:10

as well.

2:30:102:30:15

as well.

But it is something people

love to watch.

It is the most

2:30:152:30:20

dangerous of the Winter Olympic

sports because they are pushing its

2:30:202:30:24

a hard. The course is slightly safer

than the one in Sochi four years

2:30:242:30:28

ago, but when only two can go

through, they will push it hard. It

2:30:282:30:32

is the Olympic Games and they are

going for it throwing themselves at

2:30:322:30:35

it.

2:30:352:30:39

For them, you are racing against

other people, so list that

2:30:392:30:43

adrenaline and that competitive edge

because so often you are against

2:30:432:30:47

that clock and you don't know how

close you are to the person in front

2:30:472:30:50

of you.

But it doesn't matter how

fast you go, as long as you're

2:30:502:30:54

faster than the next mind, as long

as you can shut the door and have

2:30:542:30:59

clever overtaking. That's what's so

important with ski cross. You have

2:30:592:31:02

got to have a good start, but also

be brave to overtake.

How tactical

2:31:022:31:07

is it? And what kind of skier

doesn't suit? Because it's

2:31:072:31:13

technical, fast, but there's also a

lot of endurance, five races the

2:31:132:31:19

medal winner had to go through

today.

Yes, you got to make it

2:31:192:31:23

through each race like it's the

final. It was great that Brady Leman

2:31:232:31:30

one because he got it in Vancouver,

he broke his leg in training and

2:31:302:31:38

didn't compete, in Sochi, he was

forth behind the three French

2:31:382:31:42

skiers. This time around he was able

to climb on top of the podium. He

2:31:422:31:46

was able to make his move of the

roller section, he knew he could

2:31:462:31:50

generate speed so he set himself off

to one side and just pumped his way

2:31:502:31:54

through. And then his team-mates

crashed and took out the Russian and

2:31:542:32:01

he had to Haringey back out. I love

those shots of him climbing up the

2:32:012:32:07

hill to come back up.

How much fun

it accommodate on? Because it's so

2:32:072:32:14

high octane ever race.

It's so fun,

if it had been around when I was

2:32:142:32:21

racing, I would have switched, a lot

of people who did downhill to ski

2:32:212:32:25

cross because it gives you a buzz.

Nothing like racing head-to-head.

2:32:252:32:31

Women's race on Saturday, should be

another good one.

Yes, Emily

2:32:312:32:36

Sarsfield Britain will be racing in

that, hopefully she gets through.

2:32:362:32:40

It's such a tough event. You have

two risk absolutely everything.

2:32:402:32:46

You've really just got is too late

on the line.

It looks like a great

2:32:462:32:53

atmosphere down there, it's a great

spectator event.

It is, yes, it's

2:32:532:32:57

dangerous and there are injuries but

the guys who are doing it are fully

2:32:572:33:01

committed to it. They do this week

in, week out on the World Cup tour.

2:33:012:33:05

They don't quite crash as much as

they do as at the Olympics!

Until I

2:33:052:33:12

had about the injuries I thought I'd

give it a go myself but have changed

2:33:122:33:16

my mind! We're going to head back to

the ice hockey where the Olympic

2:33:162:33:20

Athletes from Russia are facing

Norway in the quarterfinals. They

2:33:202:33:23

have a commanding lead after the

first period, OAR. Let's see if

2:33:232:33:28

Norway can stage fight back.

I think they going to need a little

2:33:282:33:34

bit of help. I don't know whether

2:33:342:33:42

I think they going to need a little

bit of help. I don't know divine

2:33:422:33:42

intervention is what they need but

they need to find a way to stop OAR.

2:33:422:33:48

This man has just come in to replace

Lars Haugen, who had some problems

2:33:482:33:54

with his eyes. Henrik Haukeland has

started this period. And he will get

2:33:542:34:01

his first taste of winter Olympic

ice hockey action. How tough job of

2:34:012:34:07

that before him?

It's going to be

very difficult -- how tough of a job

2:34:072:34:14

will that be for him? He has been on

the bench but he has not made any

2:34:142:34:18

action yet. To have the OAR team be

your first competition is going to

2:34:182:34:23

be really tricky. Not many shots

directed at him yet. The OAR team

2:34:232:34:33

had to kill off a penalty earlier on

in the period but it will

2:34:332:34:41

in the period but it will Not

belong, 20-2 shots in favour of OAR.

2:34:412:34:49

Haukeland has played in the top

league in Sweden, a re-standard.

2:34:492:34:56

He's dropped down one stage to go

down to a different league where he

2:34:562:35:08

plays against good players every

week. Nobody quite the standard of

2:35:082:35:12

this OAR team, which, at best, is

sensational. They did lose one game

2:35:122:35:19

going through the group phase having

led by two goals to nil, against the

2:35:192:35:26

Slovakians. Harsh to figure out even

with the benefit of hindsight how

2:35:262:35:33

that happened. He might look like

you have a hard day at the office,

2:35:332:35:42

but it's been easy for him.

There's

no real reason to think that

2:35:422:35:48

anything will change from the

Norwegian side.

2:35:482:35:54

Norwegian side.

Playing in their

first ever Olympic quarterfinal. Ice

2:35:552:35:59

hockey is one of those sports that

really should be big in Norway,

2:35:592:36:02

there's no reason why it shouldn't

be a prominent sport but it seems to

2:36:022:36:06

lag behind ski jumping and

cross-country. And all the rest of

2:36:062:36:13

the other winter sports that Norway

have got a real dominant streak in.

2:36:132:36:18

Haukeland grabs hold of that.

2:36:182:36:24

Prokhorkin 's had a good tournament

so far, he loves to get into the

2:36:312:36:39

face of his opponents. We saw it

against the United States, he was

2:36:392:36:43

not backing down from any of the

American players, laughing it off

2:36:432:36:47

after he put a glove in the face, a

little extra stick. He thrives on

2:36:472:36:52

that sort of hockey.

He's one of the

St Petersburg players in the

2:36:522:36:59

continental hockey league. Spent a

little bit of time in the US with

2:36:592:37:07

the Manchester monarchs. They are a

second-tier team in the American

2:37:072:37:13

hockey league.

2:37:132:37:15

Looking at what their options are,

here. Penalty coming, and it's a

2:37:252:37:31

penalty on Ivan Telegin who

interferes with one of the Norwegian

2:37:312:37:36

players. They've got to be careful

they don't get taken off the game

2:37:362:37:41

here, the Russians. Almost finding

it difficult to stay motivated by

2:37:412:37:46

the game and they get involved in

other stuff.

That's the case here,

2:37:462:37:51

and already the second penalty taken

by the OAR here early in the second

2:37:512:37:57

period. They've got a commanding 3-0

lead. And it's only human nature for

2:37:572:38:02

a bit of complacency to step in. The

head coach doesn't want to see that,

2:38:022:38:08

he wants to see his team continue to

work hard and play the right way.

2:38:082:38:16

They know that there is a very good

Czech Republic team coming for them

2:38:162:38:19

in the semifinals.

That saved per to

come to be. -- that is saved pretty

2:38:192:38:28

competently.

2:38:282:38:33

competently. Norway gave it away,

though. Deep inside their own zone.

2:38:332:38:36

They have one extra play-off on the

ice right now, hard to imagine. They

2:38:362:38:42

are skating away. No goals in the

second period so far. Most of it has

2:38:422:38:51

been Norwegian power play time.

That's into the

2:38:512:39:04

That's into the body and the Celica

-- Vasily Koshechkin grabbed hold of

2:39:042:39:11

it.

2:39:112:39:17

it.

55 feet out, not ideal on a

power play but when you've only had

2:39:182:39:21

to macro shots through 25 minutes of

action, you've got to continue

2:39:212:39:27

through Aaron on that. -- starring

Rob on that.

2:39:272:39:34

The work is not cleaned so far.

2:39:422:39:49

Ridge again, fighting the book

little bit.

2:39:492:39:58

little bit. It will now be cleared

away all the way down the ice.

2:39:582:40:06

Norway will try and come again.

2:40:062:40:14

Look at them keeping their feet

moving, the Russian team. Forcing

2:40:212:40:26

Norway to make passes.

Being

aggressive all over the ice, three

2:40:262:40:33

players on one Norwegian player. If

you are Norway, you have got to let

2:40:332:40:40

the puck do the work, you got to

move it, change the angle of attack.

2:40:402:40:48

Kick it back and then move it

left-to-right. That's easier said

2:40:482:40:54

than done.

2:40:542:41:04

A shot from range is perfected wide.

-- deflected. There are goals all

2:41:122:41:18

over the ice.

2:41:182:41:23

over the ice. A shooting chance,

they score!

2:41:272:41:33

Bonsaksen has had a good couple of

days, that is all about the Battle

2:41:392:41:47

on the board and Norway have their

first ever Olympic quarterfinal

2:41:472:41:52

goal. The brothers combine and then

Bonsaksen finishes with a block.

2:41:522:42:01

What's the netminder, he had no idea

where it was. The pass came out,

2:42:012:42:06

look where he is looking, he goes to

the other side. Bonsaksen puts it

2:42:062:42:10

right in the middle of the net and

nothing but confusion from Vasily

2:42:102:42:16

Koshechkin. Confusion from the OAR

netminder and a good finish from

2:42:162:42:25

Bonsaksen, and it's a 3-1 game, with

just four macro shots on net by

2:42:252:42:31

Norway.

That was, cough. -- that was

comical.

2:42:312:42:41

It's going to be a heist that called

against the Norwegian goal scorer.

2:42:412:42:47

Hero to villain in the space of a

couple of replays.

2:42:472:42:54

couple of replays. Bonsaksen going

to the box, high stick is the call.

2:42:542:42:58

He was the hero yesterday in

overtime, got the goal that moved

2:42:582:43:02

Norway onto this game here as they

beat Slovenia 2-1.

A real good job

2:43:022:43:09

into the play on this goal. On and

off his stick in a hurry. Standard

2:43:092:43:16

the OAR defenceman. -- he stunned

him. He was dispiriting

2:43:162:43:28

him. He was dispiriting -- pivoting

backwards. No regard for his stick.

2:43:292:43:33

This shot goes right into the middle

of the net. He didn't have any idea

2:43:332:43:40

where the puck was so it's slipped

right in.

Bonsaksen playing in his

2:43:402:43:46

third Olympic Games, and in

Vancouver he got no points, and in

2:43:462:43:50

Sochi, he got no points. But

Pyeongchang is the time and place.

2:43:502:43:54

Two goals in the space of less than

24 hours.

2:43:542:44:03

24 hours. And that was quite a

moment in this game.

2:44:032:44:10

moment in this game. So have OAR

been lulled to sleep or will they be

2:44:102:44:15

awake?

2:44:152:44:23

Ambitious pass to get through all of

those players but not something that

2:44:272:44:32

usually would worry him.

He had that

in his mind, as soon as he got the

2:44:322:44:37

puck that he would go across.

He's

really playing at half case, here.

2:44:372:44:46

Such a wonderful player. He sets

that one up. And from a matter of

2:44:462:44:55

inches, all we he had to do was get

his stick on it. The power play

2:44:552:45:04

clicking very nicely indeed for the

Olympics athletes from Russia, that

2:45:042:45:07

was a bit of a painted by Kovalchuk.

Look at him recognise, it is one

2:45:072:45:21

against zero situation if he can

that pass. He beats Mateus Noster

2:45:212:45:29

though, the defender. A quick flick

and a wonderful job from Sergey

2:45:292:45:36

Kalinin, who has to get down on his

knee and make sure he gets the puck

2:45:362:45:40

on and off his stick. 4-1 to the

OAR.

Four goals and four scorers in

2:45:402:45:53

this game. Norway coming into this

game had only scored four goals.

2:45:532:46:04

This group from Russia are

Heartbreakers.

2:46:192:46:25

Heartbreakers.

I'm sure fans all

over the nation will be watching

2:46:282:46:31

this, and wherever they are they

will be feeling very proud. There is

2:46:312:46:35

not a Russian flag on their tops,

but they are very much a product of

2:46:352:46:40

the Russian game, and the players

are very much playing for Russian

2:46:402:46:45

hearts and minds, and the Russian

flag somewhere along the line,

2:46:452:46:49

irrespective of what the IOC are

seeing.

2:46:492:47:00

As a fan and a Russian, it almost

makes you stand taller for your

2:47:092:47:14

country.

2:47:142:47:22

country. With regard to the doping,

there is still will question whether

2:47:222:47:29

they should be representing anybody

here, but they are, and you cannot

2:47:292:47:34

take anything away from the fans.

100%.

2:47:342:47:42

They are eligible to compete in the

competition, whatever happened four

2:47:482:47:51

years ago is very little to do with

them, and they are proud Russian so

2:47:512:47:55

why would they not be excited to be

delivering the kind of Olympic

2:47:552:47:58

performance the Russian public cabin

wanting for a long time? And they

2:47:582:48:02

want more goals.

2:48:022:48:08

Norway are trailing. They could have

another chance here, but...

2:48:252:48:38

A penalty coming. Antonov is there

a. That referee cannot see it, a

2:49:122:49:20

penalty coming. Russian power so

far. Up twice, scored twice, thank

2:49:202:49:28

you very much.

2:49:282:49:33

you very much.

Too much work here

from the Alway are.

2:49:342:49:46

They can demonstrate to the referee

that they are being impeded from

2:49:472:49:50

going where they want to, it is

pretty easy to make a call. You made

2:49:502:49:54

the point before

2:49:542:49:59

Two of the players have four goals

each.

2:50:192:50:31

each.

, they have guys who can do it

in bunches and other guy is just

2:50:312:50:34

getting started by the looks of

things.

2:50:342:50:40

things.

Watch the setup for the

power play here.

2:50:422:50:50

power play here. Gusev looks behind

the net, and then the lookout for

2:50:512:50:54

robbers.

2:50:542:50:59

robbers.

No reader a good job of

doing that.

It is like the early 90s

2:50:592:51:06

when

2:51:062:51:14

when they had great players, they

would send out five Russians, and

2:51:142:51:20

the head coach would send out five

of them. It was a thing of beauty to

2:51:202:51:25

watch them working around on the

power play.

The score, it comes off

2:51:252:51:32

the defender.

2:51:322:51:40

the defender. Bonsaksen puts it in.

A third power play goal. Bonsaksen

2:51:402:51:49

puts it in his own net, but there

are no own goals in as hockey, so

2:51:492:51:54

the credit will go to all eight are.

They have definitely had a few ugly

2:51:542:51:59

ones on the power play. This was of

Bonsaksen?. But not so much the ugly

2:51:592:52:08

goals, it is just the continued

presence, the relentless pressure on

2:52:082:52:12

the power play,

2:52:122:52:17

12 different goal-scorers.

Starting

to get to the point where you count

2:52:272:52:33

the ones who have not scored because

it is easier than counting those who

2:52:332:52:36

have! That is over half of the team.

And that is only in four games.

2:52:362:52:48

And that is only in four games.

What

now for Norway? 5-1 down. They know

2:52:492:52:53

that this is going to be the end of

the Olympic experience. What do they

2:52:532:52:57

do here? The Lowe you have to start

by being more disciplined. Three

2:52:572:53:03

power play goals, 3-3 on the power

play. It this team which you in the

2:53:032:53:11

position where you have to stick or

hold. Norway will be as disciplined

2:53:112:53:14

as possible.

2:53:142:53:19

as possible. Bonsaksen scored in

overtime, scored today, twice today,

2:53:192:53:25

once in his own team and once

against the Russian athlete team.

2:53:252:53:32

Oh, dear. These ice skates are very

expensive, anything up to £800, and

2:53:342:53:44

made of all sorts of materials. One

of the things the do with skates

2:53:442:53:50

now... A quick whistle here.

2:53:502:54:01

now... A quick whistle here. An

extra puck on the ice. What they do

2:54:012:54:04

now is heat them up then form them

on your feet. A lot of people may

2:54:042:54:08

have had the experience of skating

on a public session, feeling how

2:54:082:54:12

uncomfortable they are. I do not

know why one of the fans did that.

2:54:122:54:20

He might be shown the door!

Typically frowned upon, fans

2:54:202:54:25

throwing things on the ice.

2:54:252:54:33

throwing things on the ice.

To

finish my point, the ice skates are

2:54:332:54:35

little more like slippers. The very

lightweight. And the players will

2:54:352:54:40

feel very comfortable in them. Back

to Bonsaksen?.

2:54:402:54:54

to Bonsaksen?. Penalties coming. A

bit of frustration seeping in.

He

2:54:552:55:05

had a wonderful chance before this

setup.

2:55:052:55:11

A terrific experience for Hoff, will

he -- when he heads back to

2:55:192:55:32

university after these games.

2:55:322:55:43

The American Donato has become a

legend overnight scoring the most

2:55:442:55:48

goals in the tournament.

2:55:482:55:55

Harford student -- harboured student

playing for their country.

2:55:552:56:07

That is loads of space out there

now. That will have the eyes of the

2:56:252:56:32

Olympic Athletes from Russia popping

up, they thought they could have a

2:56:322:56:36

bit more space out there that they

can enjoy and be creative in. Norway

2:56:362:56:43

have possession right now.

2:56:432:56:53

Koshechkin has had to play very

hard, but I'm not sure he's one of

2:57:092:57:14

the best.

Everything looks difficult

for him.

2:57:142:57:22

for him. He could not find the park,

it was just behind the net.

2:57:222:57:34

it was just behind the net.

The

goalie is the biggest in the

2:57:342:57:37

tournament, six foot seven, you

would have to do pretty well to miss

2:57:372:57:40

him.

2:57:402:57:45

him. Alway are in control is

normally come in with a bit of an

2:57:472:57:50

attack.

2:57:502:57:55

This could be a bigger lead, three

or four chances in the first period

2:58:092:58:14

as well. Not taken.

2:58:142:58:23

as well. Not taken. Just taking it

easy here.

2:58:232:58:28

Kick save, just a twist of his knees

and he was free and open. OAR still

2:58:342:58:42

have possession. Going back to 515.

2:58:422:58:50

The Norwegians have cracked up their

intensity.

It is all are nothing.

2:59:102:59:23

Norway are second best by some

distance. They still have a chance

2:59:432:59:46

to shoot, but they missed the net.

2:59:462:59:52

to shoot, but they missed the net. I

know we cannot solve all the

2:59:552:59:57

problems of the world, but we will

try to find an explanation over the

2:59:573:00:02

coming 22.5 minutes as to why it has

been such a long time since there

3:00:023:00:06

has been success for Russia at a

Winter Olympic Games. So many great

3:00:063:00:19

players, yet in Sochi four years ago

when they were expected and the

3:00:203:00:23

nation was watching them and wanting

them to win gold, the president

3:00:233:00:27

turned up at the Jammes -- turned up

at the games, why have the struggle

3:00:273:00:34

to have success?

The theory starts

with the make-up of their hockey

3:00:343:00:41

teams. There is no doubt, when they

put together the rotors, and you

3:00:413:00:45

look at it on paper, they have

skill, but it can only take you so

3:00:453:00:55

far. Where Russia lacks a lot of

times is that players get in the

3:00:553:00:58

trenches and then win the races and

battles to the pucks, ultimately

3:00:583:01:07

getting control of it and from there

they get it to the crafty players

3:01:073:01:11

who can then put it in the back of

the net.

3:01:113:01:18

When you have players like that, all

wonderful players, some of the most

3:01:183:01:21

talented in the world, but they're

waiting for someone else to give

3:01:213:01:25

them the puck. And so you can have

all the talent in the world, but if

3:01:253:01:32

you don't have the puck on your

stick, it makes you pretty

3:01:323:01:35

ineffective.

I be the favourites

right now for you?

Yes, they are.

3:01:353:01:42

Good skating again. Who can push

them?

3:01:423:01:51

them?

Well, I would say I think the

Czech Republic will, I think they

3:01:513:01:55

will pose a little bit of a

different opponent in the sense that

3:01:553:02:00

they are a big club, they take away

a lot of lanes. Sweden will be good

3:02:003:02:03

too. Those are probably the two who

would pose the biggest threat.

3:02:033:02:15

Into the final 40 seconds and Norway

have tried to crank up the heat

3:02:153:02:19

here.

3:02:193:02:26

Great pass to Gusev but he could not

take it in their stride. They are

3:02:283:02:31

returning the favour, Gusev is a

wonderful parser. A little

3:02:313:02:36

acknowledgement, that was, should

have done better!

It's true, we have

3:02:363:02:43

seen how crisply they pick up

passes, you kind of raise your

3:02:433:02:46

eyebrows saying, they macro did not

pick that up cleanly.

He is not used

3:02:463:02:51

to it, he's used to giving a pass.

Norway 5-1 down. They're going to

3:02:513:03:01

find it very difficult to get back

into this game. And although you

3:03:013:03:10

never say never, it's highly

unlikely that they'll be able to

3:03:103:03:15

find five goals against this very

impressive outfit. The Olympics

3:03:153:03:18

athletes from Russia in complete and

to control here, Norway struggling.

3:03:183:03:26

OAR lead at the end of two periods

by five goals to one.

3:03:263:03:32

STUDIO: it looks like the OAR will

be through to the semifinals, the

3:03:323:03:38

Czech Republic going through only

with their win over the USA. You

3:03:383:03:43

might remember a few days ago we

brought you the story of our ice

3:03:433:03:47

dance couple, Penny Coomes and Nick

Buckland. They've had to overcome

3:03:473:03:51

multiple injuries in their career

but the worst came 20 months ago

3:03:513:03:58

when Penny shattered any captain to

20 pieces, potentially trigger

3:03:583:04:02

handicap. Here is their free dance

from yesterday.

3:04:023:04:07

So, here we go, just over four

minutes and this Olympic Jenny will

3:04:103:04:14

be over, through shattered kneecap,

20 months of despair, recovery and

3:04:143:04:20

hope to today. Tenth place at the

moment, looking to push up the

3:04:203:04:25

leaderboard and they need to be

perfect.

3:04:253:04:28

And that for the lift.

Have it

looking?

-- and that was the lift.

3:07:593:08:08

How is it looking?

So far, so good.

3:08:083:08:18

The ultimate story of grit and

determination. It has a happy ending

3:08:433:08:48

out on the ice, for now at least. It

may not be an medal but this means

3:08:483:08:53

more to them than precious metal. .

3:08:533:08:56

I'm delighted to say they are with

me now and you have just watched

3:08:583:09:02

that for the first time! You about

analysing yourselves. Tell me your

3:09:023:09:09

critical eye over that, what do you

make of it?

I'm very pleased to

3:09:093:09:13

that, it's nice to see the Olympic

rings in the background and how it

3:09:133:09:18

all comes together.

And you just

said to me, one of those lists was

3:09:183:09:23

the one that you injured your knee

on, and you put it back in the

3:09:233:09:28

programme!

I think to do what we do,

you have to be a little bit crazy.

3:09:283:09:32

So I wanted to get back and do that

lift as soon as possible, not to let

3:09:323:09:40

it, mental issue. I have to do it

every day so I didn't want to be

3:09:403:09:43

scared of it.

Tell me what the

emotions well I. You did a short

3:09:433:09:47

dance and a free dance, which was

the most emotional? Was at the first

3:09:473:09:50

one going out there?

I think it was,

before I stepped out onto the ice

3:09:503:09:56

for the first time, I just had a

little cry to myself, because I was

3:09:563:10:01

so proud that I actually made it.

There were definitely times when I

3:10:013:10:04

just didn't think that that moment

would be possible. And it was what I

3:10:043:10:08

was working towards for so long. So

to actually be there about to

3:10:083:10:12

perform at the Olympics, it was so

special.

And you have had to watch

3:10:123:10:18

her go through all the rehab, it's

emotional for you as well?

3:10:183:10:21

Definitely, we worked through the

whole thing together from beginning

3:10:213:10:25

to end. We were there on days where

I had to pick you up and days when

3:10:253:10:30

you had to pick me up. What we were

there together and we got through it

3:10:303:10:33

and we finally made it out and had

our moments yesterday.

11th is an

3:10:333:10:37

incredible achievement given what

you've been through. We had the

3:10:373:10:40

commentary saying that it was about

more than the results, wasn't it?

3:10:403:10:47

Yes, our journey was to get to the

Olympics, it was about a comeback.

3:10:473:10:50

The whole time I wanted to be an

inspiration to young people. I

3:10:503:10:54

wanted to show people that if you

get knocked down, you can get back

3:10:543:10:59

up again. I just want to say thank

you to UK sport for believing in me

3:10:593:11:03

and everyone who plays the national

lottery because you just got me back

3:11:033:11:06

where I belong.

It's an incredible

story in what you've overcome. Some

3:11:063:11:13

of the last 20 months for you. --

some up the last 20 months.

It's

3:11:133:11:19

been a roller-coaster of emotion,

from it happening to you getting

3:11:193:11:22

back on the ice to then get back to

competition and then have another

3:11:223:11:28

surgery, so to climax with

everything yesterday and for it all

3:11:283:11:32

to come together, we're really

pleased that we were able to show

3:11:323:11:35

that moment with each other and

everyone around the whole world on

3:11:353:11:38

the biggest stage.

You are an ice

dancing couple and a couple off the

3:11:383:11:44

ice as well, how much of that

helped?

I think it helped us a lot,

3:11:443:11:48

in the last 20 months, we guess he

got closer together. We've been

3:11:483:11:52

there for each other every step of

the way and when we do perform,

3:11:523:11:55

those looks we give each other are

sincere. So I think that apparently

3:11:553:12:00

helps us. We're so lucky to have

shared a journey with someone that

3:12:003:12:03

we feel very close to and is very

special to us.

It must help on the

3:12:033:12:08

ice being a couple because like you

say, the emotions are real. But off

3:12:083:12:12

the ice, given all you've been

through, to be able to pick each

3:12:123:12:16

other up at home when you have got

the seat up as opposed to a training

3:12:163:12:20

together?

Yes, -- when you have got

your feet up? Yes, we have the same

3:12:203:12:25

aspirations and goals so from

beginning to end we are with each

3:12:253:12:30

other we want to carry on doing what

we're doing.

It was an incredible

3:12:303:12:34

routine that won it yesterday from

the Canadians, Tessa Virtue and

3:12:343:12:38

Scott Moir, it almost broke the

Internet. Everyone is speaking about

3:12:383:12:44

it. Some power but that was from

your own professional point of view?

3:12:443:12:48

They are my favourites, I look up to

them. They have brought so much to

3:12:483:12:54

the sport. It was a magical Olympic

moment, the whole arena was in

3:12:543:13:01

tears. I think they just perform it

for each other and forgot everyone

3:13:013:13:08

else was there. I feel really lucky

that we got to see it live.

What's

3:13:083:13:13

next for both of you on the ice?

In

the immediate future, we have World

3:13:133:13:19

Championship in four weeks, no rest

for the wicked, we will analyse the

3:13:193:13:22

performances and pick up a few extra

marks. There's training for all of

3:13:223:13:29

the athletes here so we might be

only back on the ice.

Thank you for

3:13:293:13:36

joining us and congratulations, it

was great to see you here at the

3:13:363:13:39

Olympic Games after all that hard

work you have been through.

Thank

3:13:393:13:43

you.

It's time to say goodbye but

Clare Balding will be picking up on

3:13:433:13:48

BBC One very shortly. The women's

demand -- two-man bob sleigh goes

3:13:483:13:56

tonight. Have a very good day and we

will see you tomorrow.
