"Pali pali" means faster, faster,

and they nine has begun at lightning

0:01:240:01:28

speed. Welcome to a historic day in

Britain's Winter Olympics history,

0:01:280:01:35

because Izzy Atkin has become the

first medallist to win on skis.

0:01:350:01:43

Sensational stuff at the Phoenix

Snow Park. There are nine titles in

0:01:430:01:48

total up for grabs today, and it

could be a golden Super Saturday for

0:01:480:01:52

the Brits.

0:01:520:01:57

the Brits. 2014 Olympic gold

medallist Lizzy Yarnold has shown a

0:01:570:02:00

champion buzz by determination. She

battled illness and a dip in form to

0:02:000:02:03

post a new track record in her first

run yesterday. Laura Deas is

0:02:030:02:10

fulfilling her promise of too. Her

sparkling second run saw her move up

0:02:100:02:14

to fourth place after two runs, one

place behind Yarnold. They begin

0:02:140:02:19

their second day's competition at

11.20 this morning. Elise Christie

0:02:190:02:23

is also back on the ice, looking to

wipe away those Tuesday tears. Her

0:02:230:02:29

1500m campaign starts this morning

at ten o'clock. And here are the

0:02:290:02:36

pictures of Super Saturday getting

off to that perfect start. History

0:02:360:02:39

at the Phoenix Snow Park, a

first-ever British Olympics no

0:02:390:02:42

middle on skis, Izzy Atkin with

bronze in the slopestyle. Let's hear

0:02:420:02:48

from her. She is with Tim Warwood.

Come on!

0:02:480:02:59

Come on!

I hope this is a good

interview.

How are you feeling?

Just

0:03:010:03:07

relieved. Put a rundown, really

happy. Just excited and overwhelmed.

0:03:070:03:14

What a final that was. The seeds

were everywhere. It was a weird

0:03:140:03:22

qualifying, but then all the best 12

were in there for the final. It

0:03:220:03:25

could have been anyone's. Talk us

through it.

There were tonnes of

0:03:250:03:30

names in the field. It could have

been anyone. I was at the bottom

0:03:300:03:35

after my final one. I knew I had

skied the best I could and I was

0:03:350:03:38

waiting for the last three or four

girls to drop. My heart was racing.

0:03:380:03:42

I can't believe it.

Dare I say it,

first Olympic medal on skis in a

0:03:420:03:51

long time. You must be overwhelmed.

I am still speechless. I'm really

0:03:510:03:58

excited and happy. I'm just stoked

with how I skied and stoked to win

0:03:580:04:02

the bronze.

Huge congratulations, we

are over the moon for you.

Thank

0:04:020:04:09

you, I'm really happy!

Well, you

might notice an accident there from

0:04:090:04:16

Izzy Atkin. She was born and raised

in the USA, but decided to represent

0:04:160:04:21

Great Britain -- you might have

noticed her accent. It is the

0:04:210:04:24

country her father is from, USA's

loss was Great Britain's game today.

0:04:240:04:30

History for Izzy Atkin. She will go

down as the first-ever British

0:04:300:04:33

winter Olympian to win on skis. Just

the second to win on snow after

0:04:330:04:38

Jenny Jones four years ago in Sochi

in snowboarding. Also brilliant

0:04:380:04:43

stuff from Katie Summerhayes, who,

not fully fit, made it to the final

0:04:430:04:48

and finished a creditable seventh

place. Loads still to come today.

0:04:480:04:54

Plenty more excitement. Here is what

is coming up over the next few hours

0:04:540:04:58

on BBC Two.

0:04:580:05:04

on BBC Two. It is the halfway point

in the qualifications stage for Tim

0:05:040:05:08

Smith. Two wins and two losses for

the British team so far. Today they

0:05:080:05:14

take on hosts South Korea. And you

have seen the celebrations - we will

0:05:140:05:17

show you how Izzy Atkin one that

historic first medal on skis. It's

0:05:170:05:23

time for the fastest and bravest

woman to take to the slopes. We will

0:05:230:05:26

show you what happened in the

women's Super-G. And we will have

0:05:260:05:30

the conclusion of the men's figure

skating. Can Yuzuru Hanyu retain his

0:05:300:05:34

Olympic title? If you were watching

on BBC One, you will know that the

0:05:340:05:40

men's curlers are back on the brink.

We are heading straight back there

0:05:400:05:44

to join up with them in their match

against South Korea. Just a bit of a

0:05:440:05:48

reflection on what they have done

over the last few days. This is

0:05:480:05:51

their fifth match. They started the

campaign with a last-ditch win

0:05:510:05:56

against the Swiss and they picked up

a win against Japan. Defeat

0:05:560:06:00

yesterday to Sweden and earlier in

the campaign to Canada means that

0:06:000:06:05

after four matches, two wins and two

losses have them sitting third in

0:06:050:06:09

the table. Canada and Sweden are the

only two yet to be defeated. Britain

0:06:090:06:14

have played them both already. The

top four go through into the

0:06:140:06:19

knockout semifinal. Let's get back

to the Gangneung Curling Centre and

0:06:190:06:22

our commentary team of Logan Gray

Steve Cram for Great Britain against

0:06:220:06:25

South Korea.

0:06:250:06:27

It's a critical time and a critical

shot for Great Britain here. Really

0:06:300:06:35

up against it. Korea didn't start

well. Great Britain stole two in the

0:06:350:06:40

first end, and then they responded

very well and they stole themselves

0:06:400:06:47

against hammer in the third end.

This is the fourth. Great Britain

0:06:470:06:51

Karadzic hammer into this fourth

end. They have already used a

0:06:510:06:55

time-out and had a long discussion

of the shot you have just seen.

0:06:550:06:59

Korea have them nicely tied up. It's

not the sort of match it looked in

0:06:590:07:06

the first end, Logan, it looked like

it would be easy for Great Britain,

0:07:060:07:11

but since then Korea have played

some cracking shots. We have had one

0:07:110:07:15

more two little errors. Not that

bad, but here we find ourselves a

0:07:150:07:19

bit up against it. This is the

Korean skip.

0:07:190:07:36

The GB guys have played well, but

Korea are making everything at the

0:07:370:07:42

moment and GB need to weather the

storm. I don't think it is possible

0:07:420:07:46

for them to maintain the standard

for the whole game.

So the British

0:07:460:07:53

skipper will be able to draw in 41.

That is as good as he will get here.

0:07:530:08:01

Two stones of Korea in the house.

Dartitis up in this one, kept

0:08:010:08:07

sitting on top of the British stones

-- they tied us up this one. The

0:08:070:08:13

crowd are of course well into this.

It is filling up now. And

0:08:130:08:18

particularly down that side.

0:08:180:08:27

particularly down that side. He has

to be careful with this one.

0:08:270:08:39

Got to sweep hard. Well done. Really

hard work, some good sweeping. A

0:08:450:08:58

slap on the back for the sweepers.

He knew as soon as he had let it go.

0:08:580:09:09

It is 3-3. Very similar to Britain's

women in this morning, who thought

0:09:110:09:15

they had a straightforward match

against Denmark and then found

0:09:150:09:17

themselves tied. To be honest,

Logan, they haven't played badly

0:09:170:09:23

here. It is Korea who have been

good.

Absolutely. The first end was

0:09:230:09:29

all GB, but since then it has been

pretty even. Korea 's keep making

0:09:290:09:35

these extremely accurate hit and

roles. But at the moment, GB just

0:09:350:09:41

need to keep their heads.

0:09:410:09:47

need to keep their heads. Just got

the job done here.

0:09:510:09:57

the job done here.

That is what this

curling game is all about, the

0:09:580:10:05

combination of the sweepers being

able to make a stone go that bit

0:10:050:10:08

further than it would have done,

particularly with the strength of

0:10:080:10:15

Cammy Smith. That is what they train

for. That is what the hours in the

0:10:150:10:18

gym four.

0:10:180:10:24

Korea now with the hammer. It's

never bad to have the hammer in the

0:10:250:10:31

even ends.

0:10:310:10:36

We have to keep an eye on the other

matches. Canada against Sweden is

0:10:440:10:48

the big crunch match. It has been a

really tight affair. After four, it

0:10:480:10:55

is 2-0 to Canada. Sweden have

blanked the third and fourth end, so

0:10:550:11:03

they are into the fifth end. Japan

are leading three have won over

0:11:030:11:09

Italy. They have had a good start to

this Olympic campaign. And Norway

0:11:090:11:13

are 2-1 up over Switzerland. They

are two well matched teams. You

0:11:130:11:18

might occasionally get a glimpse of

the Norwegian trousers, always a

0:11:180:11:22

feature.

0:11:220:11:32

And although Canada and Sweden are

the gold medal favourites,

0:11:340:11:46

Switzerland and Norway are GB's

biggest competitors to make the

0:11:460:11:48

medals.

0:11:480:11:56

medals.

Norway would have only one

win from the first three matches if

0:11:560:12:00

they were to be beaten.

But they

have been to the final of the

0:12:000:12:03

Olympics before, picking up the

silver in Vancouver in 2010.

0:12:030:12:15

silver in Vancouver in 2010.

Cammy

Smith, doing a good job with the

0:12:150:12:20

first two stones.

0:12:200:12:28

first two stones. We were talking

before about the kind of strategy

0:12:280:12:31

going forward, the way Korea have

been making the hit and rolls and

0:12:310:12:38

the takeouts.

That is a mistake.

0:12:380:12:48

You can see what the skip wants, to

tap that one back and stay above the

0:12:570:13:06

tee line if he can. Try and keep it

hidden as well.

0:13:060:13:14

Kyle Waddell. His mum and dad are

here.

I have seen Kyle Smith's

0:13:210:13:26

parents as well, his dad is the 1991

champion Dave Smith.

Pretty good

0:13:260:13:36

shot.

0:13:360:13:41

Korea are going to try and replicate

that shot.

0:13:490:13:56

That yellow stone is Korea's friend

at the moment, because Great Britain

0:14:310:14:35

half to steer the Korean stone

passed it.

The request was to tip

0:14:350:14:42

this on the nose.

0:14:420:14:46

That was always the problem. But

they did get a good shooter and they

0:15:050:15:09

managed to roll their stone on the

centre line behind the guard.

0:15:090:15:16

Bald end, give yourself opportunity

to be drawing in two. They will

0:15:210:15:27

start to take, as we have seen, any

opportunity, they need to try again

0:15:270:15:34

here.

0:15:340:15:41

here. Can they remove two British

stones? He has replaced things as

0:15:410:15:54

they were with his own shooter

sitting in. The British stone is now

0:15:540:16:02

sitting in the 8-foot. They also

removed the storm from the back. --

0:16:020:16:09

they also removed the stone.

Only an

inch away from making the shot

0:16:090:16:15

perfect and he has ended up with

pretty much the worst possible

0:16:150:16:18

result. A great chance for Team GB.

0:16:180:16:22

Thomas Muirhead has been struggling

a little with his

0:16:290:16:38

a little with his draws this week,

but today he has played a couple of

0:16:380:16:40

nice ones. Not quite what he wanted.

0:16:400:16:48

He looks almost incredulous.

That

was a bit of a horrific one from

0:16:510:16:59

Thomas. He could have passed by one

foot, and still made a short. A big

0:16:590:17:09

misjudgement.

He has opened things

up.

0:17:090:17:19

Great Britain have already used the

came out in the fourth end --

0:17:190:17:33

came out in the fourth end -- they

are time-out. Classmate, against

0:17:330:17:40

Switzerland,...

0:17:400:17:45

Switzerland,... Some effort being

applied elsewhere

0:17:480:17:54

applied elsewhere wildly Korean team

discuss their options.

0:17:550:18:05

That last one was frustrating from

Thomas because it is the first

0:18:070:18:10

opportunity we have had to really

crank up the heat on Korea, and that

0:18:100:18:19

was disappointing because it has

opened the door again for Korea.

0:18:190:18:23

Seong seems to have got himself

steadied, as well as the skip.

0:18:390:18:52

steadied, as well as the skip.

I do

not think they will try to remove

0:18:520:18:55

the yellow shot stone, they will try

to leave themselves frozen on the

0:18:550:18:59

yellow GB storm.

0:18:590:19:04

If he is to make that happen, there

is not much room for error.

0:19:110:19:21

Perfectly done. But it should still

be easy for Team GB, they could just

0:19:350:19:48

slice the red out.

There is enough

distance. Just enough.

0:19:490:19:58

Same weight?

Yes.

I like this, they

are trying to take the game to Korea

0:20:090:20:19

Rather than playing defensive.

0:20:190:20:24

They wanted to catch it inside

centre. A lot of work to do.

0:20:470:20:59

Two different shots from young

Thomas Muirhead.

0:21:000:21:10

The best word as -- is different.

It

could mean many things. The scoring

0:21:130:21:26

area is quite small for Korea, they

have a few yellow stones surrounding

0:21:260:21:33

the red. It is not all doom and

gloom for Team GB.

The point is

0:21:330:21:39

trying to limit Korea, limit the

opportunities to score two.

0:21:390:21:49

They still have a bit of work to do.

0:21:540:21:56

I heard them say time-out, and they

take it.

0:22:070:22:22

take it. Their coach will make his

way down. They obviously want to

0:22:220:22:29

manufacturer scenario where there

are still five stones left to play,

0:22:290:22:37

they have three, Team GB have two.

They are trying to give themselves

0:22:370:22:45

room to score.

0:22:450:22:54

room to score.

I did not know who

that is. Weight he looks like you

0:22:540:22:58

would not want to argue with him.

0:22:580:23:08

You've got to stay there, stay

close.

0:23:140:23:17

Can you hurt yourself running in the

guard?

0:23:220:23:26

That is another possibility, run the

card through. But you could hurt

0:23:310:23:34

yourself pretty bad.

That sounds

slightly risky.

0:23:340:23:43

slightly risky. He'd be worried

about hitting his own stone.

0:23:460:23:54

about hitting his own stone. So, hit

the yellow, and push the other out.

0:23:560:23:59

That is the sort of shot he has been

favouring.

If you sit right there,

0:23:590:24:07

it is a great spot to be in. Make

sure you have a shot at the end of

0:24:070:24:11

it.

0:24:110:24:13

Sounds like this coach is bringing

more questions than answers!

There

0:24:160:24:22

four or five options! From raising

the guard to sitting on the other

0:24:220:24:30

clutch.

0:24:300:24:35

clutch. What did they settle for?

Hitting the one on the 8-foot? Rate

0:24:360:24:42

of the centre line?

Yes, I think

they are trying to roll over in

0:24:420:24:48

front of the yellow.

0:24:480:24:56

The fifth end. The halfway point in

all of these matches. Assuming they

0:25:020:25:09

go the whole way. Korea trying to

give themselves a two shot lead.

0:25:090:25:21

Seong is next to go. And the skip

still has two stones after. They

0:25:210:25:29

still have a chance to build it. A

pretty difficult shot, given the

0:25:290:25:36

circumstances.

0:25:360:25:42

He has done well. They have been

making these shots one after the

0:26:000:26:04

other since the first end. A bit of

a swagger!

0:26:040:26:17

Very good. Nice and controlled, it

did not remove anything, but it got

0:26:180:26:27

everything out of the way and left

it in a good spot. I bet he is a

0:26:270:26:34

football fan, that guy.

There's a

lot of them here in Korea. Today is

0:26:340:26:43

the busiest I have seen in the

Olympic Park, so many people today.

0:26:430:26:47

Lots of events in the arenas.

0:26:470:26:56

Lots of events in the arenas. You

can hear the groaning from the

0:26:560:26:58

crowd. Kyle Smith has done pretty

well. Still a good chance for Korea

0:26:580:27:06

to get two. Two storms left. Two in

front, to try to get in behind.

0:27:060:27:23

I had forgotten about the red over

the other side.

0:27:240:27:35

Are they just going to sit on top of

that?

No, I think they will play a

0:27:430:27:50

hit and roll.

I thought he had

changed his mind.

0:27:500:27:53

He has been deadly with the hit and

rolls so far.

0:27:580:28:03

That is a great try. Cheering from

the audience. He did not quite get

0:28:170:28:24

the

0:28:240:28:29

the roll across. Nearly, not quite.

They would love to force one,

0:28:290:28:42

soothingly to be lying

0:28:420:28:42

-- lying short.

0:28:470:28:55

I do not want to roll there, then it

is easy for two.

0:28:580:29:06

Just roll over, but he has to stay

in the 8-foot. He has two

0:29:100:29:24

in the 8-foot. He has two stay shot

if you can.

The deadlock to roll in

0:29:240:29:28

front of the other red, but it is

dangerous, if you roll too far out

0:29:280:29:33

of the 8-foot, you leave the draw

for two.

A good result would be to

0:29:330:29:40

limit Korea with just one.

0:29:400:29:48

Kyle Smith has not been playing

badly, 83%.

0:29:530:30:01

It just about stays. That is nicely

done.

That is an absolute

0:30:130:30:21

done.

That is an absolute Stinger

from Kyle Smith.

That is what you

0:30:250:30:28

need to do, just do not give easy

shots to the opposition.

0:30:280:30:36

Kim can draw in fairly

straightforward for his one. He's

0:30:430:30:49

going to try a fancy one here and

try and flick the British stone and

0:30:490:30:53

roll over. Very difficult shot.

0:30:530:31:04

Do you think he will just draw for

one?

At this stage, that might be

0:31:120:31:17

the better option. He is playing

pretty well.

0:31:170:31:27

On the other hand, maybe his

thinking, I am playing so well that

0:31:330:31:37

I can make this.

It's all about how

you play the shot. You can use the

0:31:370:31:42

sweepers.

He hasn't played this with

too much weight.

0:31:420:31:53

too much weight. He might have just

done enough there. What a shot.

0:31:530:32:01

That's it. What a shot from him. We

said it was a risky one to play. He

0:32:010:32:12

just caught enough of it, moves the

British stone back an inch and by so

0:32:120:32:19

doing, Korea get two. So at the

halfway point, it is 5-3 to Korea.

0:32:190:32:28

So slender lead for Korea in that

match against Great Britain. We will

0:32:280:32:33

head back there after a break, but

at the moment, more reaction from

0:32:330:32:37

the Phoenix Snow Park, Izzy Atkin

with that sensational bronze medal.

0:32:370:32:40

But Katie -- Katie Summerhayes also

did well. She picked up an ankle

0:32:400:32:49

ligament injury in December and was

essentially making her return to the

0:32:490:32:52

snow out here in Pyeongchang, when

she hurt her ankle again in

0:32:520:32:57

Kennington gritted her teeth to make

it to final and a seventh place

0:32:570:33:00

finish. Earlier, Tim Warwood caught

up with an emotional Katie

0:33:000:33:05

Summerhayes.

Strong performance. How tough was

0:33:050:33:11

that final? Forget that, how tough

was today?

Today has been... Yeah,

0:33:110:33:19

it was hard. I hurt my ankle in

training, so it's been clap since

0:33:190:33:24

then. I have not been able to walk

on it. I tried to put everything out

0:33:240:33:31

there, but...

0:33:310:33:37

there, but...

You qualified for the

finals, seventh place, same as four

0:33:380:33:42

years ago. You have done yourself

proud. How tough was that final?

0:33:420:33:54

Yeah, the same as four years ago,

and I worked so hard.

We feel for

0:33:550:34:00

you. Come on, bring her in. Look at

this. How proud of your sister are

0:34:000:34:05

you?

So proud of her. I know

everything she has gone through and

0:34:050:34:11

I raced over from practice to watch

her do her last run. I couldn't be

0:34:110:34:15

prouder of her, I am even crying for

her. I am so pleased.

A quick word

0:34:150:34:23

on Izzy, bronze medal. You have got

one of your best mates skiing

0:34:230:34:27

tomorrow, how is it going to affect

his morale, Woodsy?

I don't know.

0:34:270:34:34

Hopefully, he gets stoked off it.

They are tough conditions. He has to

0:34:340:34:40

try to do as well as he can.

Well,

we love you. Huge congratulations,

0:34:400:34:47

seventh best in the world is not to

be sniffed at.

It doesn't feel like

0:34:470:34:52

that right now. I'm gutted. I have

worked so hard in the past four

0:34:520:34:57

years and I got injured two months

ago. This is going to hurt for a

0:34:570:35:03

while, I think.

Come on.

0:35:030:35:12

while, I think.

Come on. STUDIO:

Emotional stuff from Katie

0:35:120:35:13

Summerhayes. It was so unfortunate

that shipping out that ankle

0:35:130:35:16

ligament injury just before coming

out here to the games. She worked so

0:35:160:35:21

hard to get herself fit enough to be

on the snow here in Pyeongchang. Am

0:35:210:35:25

sure she will look back on that once

she gets over the emotion of the day

0:35:250:35:30

and realise she did herself very

proud with another seventh place

0:35:300:35:32

finish to match what she did in

Sochi four years ago. Her sister

0:35:320:35:36

Molly came to consult her. She will

be going in the skiing half-pipe

0:35:360:35:41

later. I am sure what Katie has done

and what Izzy did with that

0:35:410:35:45

sensational bronze medal will give

lots of inspiration to James Woods,

0:35:450:35:49

who goes tomorrow in the men's

slopestyle. Could we have more to

0:35:490:35:53

celebrate tomorrow at the Phoenix

Snow Park? It's been brilliant stuff

0:35:530:35:56

from them this morning and we will

hopefully have more reaction and we

0:35:560:36:00

will look back at that as the day

goes on. But we head back now to the

0:36:000:36:05

curling centre, where it's pretty

tense between hosts South Korea and

0:36:050:36:09

Great Britain. South Korea was a

slight advantage after that fifth

0:36:090:36:13

end. Great Britain looking to bounce

back and try and pick up their third

0:36:130:36:18

win of their opening five games.

Here are your commentators, Logan

0:36:180:36:22

Gray and Steve Cram.

Well, it's been a tough affair so

0:36:220:36:29

far and one which Great Britain

might have thought would have gone

0:36:290:36:31

easier for them. Logan, you look at

the game on paper and think this is

0:36:310:36:37

an easy match and that the

opposition are firing. Maybe you

0:36:370:36:43

have to readjust a bit?

Absolutely.

They made such a strong start as

0:36:430:36:48

well, stealing two in the first end,

and then Korea have made shot after

0:36:480:36:53

shot. GB just need to weather the

storm at the moment.

The skip in

0:36:530:36:58

particular, Kim, has been superb. He

has played some wonderful shots.

0:36:580:37:07

Although Britain have not made too

many mistakes, he has been the main

0:37:070:37:14

reason that Korea find themselves

two ahead, but in all is not lost

0:37:140:37:19

here. We still have half the match

to go. We are two down at the

0:37:190:37:24

midpoint. Crucially, Great Britain

have the hammer in the even ends as

0:37:240:37:29

well.

0:37:290:37:34

well. They need to limit Korea. The

main thing is to stay in this.

0:37:350:37:53

Logan, you talked before about how

you play the last three ends. What

0:37:530:37:59

is your decision like?

0:37:590:38:06

is your decision like?

The British

team have more experience than the

0:38:060:38:09

Koreans. But at the moment, you

can't substitute anything for great

0:38:090:38:13

shotmaking and Korea are making

everything.

There are three other

0:38:130:38:17

matches. Two of them are tied up.

Switzerland and Norway or 2-2, and

0:38:170:38:23

it is the same score in the epic

battle between Canada and Sweden.

0:38:230:38:32

Sweden were victorious over the

British team last night. That was a

0:38:380:38:45

match in which Britain, for a long

time, played so well and then fell

0:38:450:38:49

away. They almost did the opposite

to happen here. They need to find

0:38:490:38:54

their best shots in the second half

of this match.

0:38:540:39:01

Cammy Smith put up a corner guard.

This looks good.

Another good setup

0:39:080:39:19

from Cammy Smith.

0:39:190:39:26

from Cammy Smith.

Four Stones

played. You can remove the guards

0:39:260:39:30

out front.

0:39:300:39:35

This is Oh, who placed second for

Korea.

0:39:410:39:48

Korea. Just clips the Gardeners'

World.

0:39:490:40:00

That might just clips the guard.

0:40:010:40:03

It is too early at the moment.

If

the opposing team are hitting, how

0:40:100:40:25

do you combat that?

Just need to

keep plugging away. They are doing

0:40:250:40:29

the right things, it is just about

stone positioning Team GB are trying

0:40:290:40:37

to be more aggressive and forced

mistakes from Korea, whereas Korea

0:40:370:40:42

are waiting for the mistakes from

GB, if you understand what I mean.

0:40:420:40:46

And that they are taking advantage.

Well, they have just had another

0:40:460:40:52

mistake to take advantage of. Kyle

Waddell caning in -- coming in, and

0:40:520:41:00

here is another opportunity to take

both these British stones out.

0:41:000:41:13

Again, they haven't started the

second half well. Still a long way

0:41:170:41:20

to go in this end.

0:41:200:41:29

to go in this end.

That was a rare

half shot from Oh.

0:41:290:41:35

half shot from Oh.

He knows that was

a good opportunity. The way they

0:41:360:41:42

have been playing, almost a surprise

that he didn't make it. They need to

0:41:420:41:47

knuckle down here and realise the

situation they are in. I am not

0:41:470:41:56

saying this is a must

0:41:560:42:03

saying this is a must win match, but

you would not want to lose many more

0:42:030:42:06

batches. You could get away with

losing four, but you might be

0:42:060:42:10

fortunate to go through with a five

and four record.

They are two wins

0:42:100:42:18

behind Canada and Sweden at the

moment, but one of those will come

0:42:180:42:22

back with a loss from this session,

so they would like to keep on their

0:42:220:42:26

coat-tails as well. That was a great

draw from Kyle Waddell.

0:42:260:42:37

draw from Kyle Waddell. Korea will

not like this, because they don't

0:42:370:42:39

have an easy takeout on the GB

stones.

0:42:390:42:45

Both teams have now used their time

at as well. All the way through the

0:42:520:42:58

second half, there were have to make

their mind up themselves -- they

0:42:580:43:03

have used their time-out.

0:43:030:43:11

Yet again, nice shot.

But it gives

GB the chance to play the same draw

0:43:240:43:35

they just played.

0:43:350:43:45

In the previous end, Thomas Muirhead

had a couple of errant shots.

0:43:490:44:01

That is a nice shot. That will make

him feel better. A sniff, yeah.

0:44:140:44:31

him feel better. A sniff, yeah. We

shouldn't forget, this is a young

0:44:340:44:37

team. First time at the Olympic

Games. They have done well to give

0:44:370:44:45

themselves the opportunity to

represent Great Britain. Did well at

0:44:450:44:47

the European Championships over

Christmas.

0:44:470:44:54

They are just not missing anything

at the moment.

With the exception of

0:45:030:45:09

the lead, they have only played

eight draws as opposed to 26

0:45:090:45:15

takeouts, the other three.

0:45:150:45:22

When you have lost your first four

team won games, the teams tend to

0:45:220:45:27

make them very close, they will not

take many risks. Dini to some

0:45:270:45:33

confidence going. That is working

for them at the moment. Cash they

0:45:330:45:39

need to get some confidence going.

0:45:390:45:47

That pulled up a little.

Just the

chance to make the double of this

0:45:480:45:56

raise. They would have liked to have

got it a few feet down, to Wear Kyle

0:45:560:46:08

and Thomas got it before.

0:46:080:46:11

With your last stone, you always

want to, however difficult the shot

0:46:210:46:28

is, give yourself a chance to get

two.

0:46:280:46:34

two. The Korean stone is very close,

just behind the bat. It is all

0:46:390:46:43

around that at the moment. --

0:46:430:46:50

around that at the moment. -- pained

behind the button.

0:46:500:47:02

Almost. Britain wanted to tap it

behind a three. They are saying to

0:47:020:47:23

just leave that when there are.

Easy

to remove the red, not so easy for

0:47:230:47:33

the double takeout. Weight he wants

to play it and tap the yellow want

0:47:330:47:42

to the red.

0:47:420:47:47

to the red. The one just right of

centre as we look at it.

0:47:480:47:58

centre as we look at it. The team

coach is watching on. We do not want

0:47:580:48:09

to be in the local newspapers for

the wrong reasons, having been

0:48:090:48:12

beaten.

0:48:120:48:20

Keep the faith, there is still a

long way to go.

0:48:210:48:29

The good news is they have not left

double takeout, they have put

0:48:290:48:37

another Korean stone into it. Weight

yes, too many errant shots at the

0:48:370:48:42

moment,

0:48:420:48:49

moment, --

yes, too many errant

shots at the moment. They have just

0:48:490:48:52

got to try to take this.

0:48:520:49:03

The other stone is fourth.

They may

just be throwing the guard. Weight

0:49:140:49:26

yes, I think that is the plan. It is

a difficult situation for Great

0:49:260:49:30

Britain, and I think they are

thinking to just protect it.

0:49:300:49:38

He has been shooting well. Weight

depending on where he puts it, we're

0:49:490:49:59

still hopeful they have another

shot.

0:49:590:50:05

Beer it is, right in line.

0:50:200:50:25

The only way I can see it for

Britain is to call into the wind

0:50:330:50:38

here. It is only going to be per

one, at the yellow next to Kyle

0:50:380:50:44

Waddell.

0:50:440:50:49

Waddell. Deen you would have to

throw a barrier? Or would you throw

0:50:510:50:54

it normal?

They are looking to run

it at the top, back into the yellow

0:50:540:51:03

as well.

0:51:030:51:13

He is confident there is no risk,

but I'm not convinced.

0:51:220:51:28

Weight this is a pivotal moment in

the match. Great Britain have to

0:51:350:51:42

hammer.

0:51:420:51:50

hammer. Kyle Smith is trying to get

one.

0:51:500:52:01

Weight well, the cheering has

started, and this has now become

0:52:070:52:13

what was now -- what was now a tough

situation is becoming incredibly

0:52:130:52:24

challenging in a way they could not

have envisaged.

From 3-3, two ends

0:52:250:52:33

later, it is 7-3. Just for ends

left. To make matters even worse,

0:52:330:52:42

they will have the hammer in the

seventh and ninth. I think the

0:52:420:52:49

judges just going down there. If you

have any expletives, I will

0:52:490:52:55

apologise for that. The judge has

had a word with the British team.

0:52:550:53:03

When you see the shots Korea mate,

you could not have seen them being

0:53:150:53:22

in this situation. Korea have played

brilliantly well, but they have been

0:53:220:53:27

helped in the last three or four

ends by shots which -- mistakes

0:53:270:53:33

Great Britain were not making early

on.

0:53:330:53:42

on. Four down. People have come back

from that, of course they have, and

0:53:420:53:45

the Korean team have certainly given

away ends where they were giving

0:53:450:53:53

away three or four, but the way they

are playing here, something would

0:53:530:53:57

have to change radically for that to

happen.

0:53:570:54:03

happen.

The score is 7-1 for the

last five games, which is crazy to

0:54:040:54:14

think after the first. But the

Koreans have not put a foot wrong,

0:54:140:54:18

they were waiting for GB to make a

mistake and pains every single time.

0:54:180:54:32

The crowd are loving this. Korea

have not won a match so far, they

0:54:370:54:43

have lost four.

0:54:430:54:50

have lost four. If you have just

woken up to this, it is not going to

0:54:500:54:54

script. I would not see we have

fallen apart, but we are struggling

0:54:540:55:04

with decision-making. Was that the

rate shot to play? Though a shot

0:55:040:55:14

from Kyle Smith?

That's not what I

would have gone, but it is what he

0:55:140:55:19

was confident with. I fancied the

shot of the wide stone. He never got

0:55:190:55:27

close to going for the wide one.

Kyle Waddell says he fancied that. A

0:55:270:55:33

really good freeze from Cammy Smith.

Cammy Smith has not done anything

0:55:330:55:38

wrong.

0:55:380:55:40

90% for this match.

0:55:440:55:55

The way it sits at the moment, they

would have to hammer at the tenth

0:56:040:56:10

end. So they do not be aggressive,

Korea, they do not need to force the

0:56:100:56:15

issue.

That is unfortunately what we

do not want. They have shown

0:56:150:56:20

themselves to be very good at the

takeouts and keeping things nice and

0:56:200:56:24

open and clean, and that will be the

tactic for the rest of the game.

0:56:240:56:35

tactic for the rest of the game. GB

wanted to play to their superior

0:56:350:56:39

strategic knowledge. But the

shotmaking abilities come from the

0:56:390:56:42

Koreans rather than Team GB.

0:56:420:56:48

When you have lost three after five,

and you can argue they have played

0:57:080:57:18

three of the toughest teams, they

are capable of beating everyone

0:57:180:57:21

else, but they are capable of

beating Korea, and they have not

0:57:210:57:24

done it here. To beat the other

teams you have got to play well and

0:57:240:57:35

accept if teams turn up playing

well, you have to match it.

0:57:350:57:45

well, you have to match it. The

guard will easily be taken away.

0:57:450:57:53

Trying to use stones here, but there

is also two Korean stones behind the

0:57:540:58:02

yellow.

0:58:020:58:07

yellow.

It may seem that GB are just

wasting stones at the moment, but it

0:58:120:58:18

is kind of what they are trying to

do, run this through a level so that

0:58:180:58:22

when they do make a move and get

into a position to lie shot, Korea

0:58:220:58:28

will only have a couple of stones to

retrieve the situation.

0:58:280:58:35

It is going to be the same shot

again for Korea, and then I would

0:58:590:59:05

expect Team GB may well make a play

on the house.

0:59:050:59:17

A small tap would be quite nice if

we could get it right on the nose.

0:59:370:59:51

So, this will be a change up here,

not throwing the guard, and just

0:59:510:59:58

rumble around the stones in the

house.

Something has to happen if

0:59:581:00:03

they are going to resurrect the

situation. It is slipping away from

1:00:031:00:06

them. Still three more ends after

this.

1:00:061:00:20

They have got a real clutch of

stones there.

1:00:281:00:38

stones there. We do have last stone,

so they have the chance to move them

1:00:381:00:42

around. There are two stones left

for each team. What will you do

1:00:421:00:49

here, can't stick something in

front?

Absolutely. It was a great

1:00:491:00:53

shot that Thomas played. He would

have liked to move the red back a

1:00:531:01:02

bit. Team GB were expecting to play

a takeout with this one, but they

1:01:021:01:11

are going to throw a guard.

I would,

because with only two stones left,

1:01:111:01:17

it is going to almost waste a stone

for Great Britain.

1:01:171:01:24

for Great Britain.

That is the way

it works sometimes. When you do make

1:01:251:01:29

a play in the house, you need to

make the shot perfect, otherwise it

1:01:291:01:32

has worked against you.

1:01:321:01:38

That was a bit long. Hopefully long

enough that Kyle can come around and

1:01:461:01:53

tap those yellows.

There might be

just enough room. He is having a

1:01:531:01:59

look.

1:01:591:02:09

Kyle needs to find something here.

The last two or three ends, there

1:02:141:02:20

have been mistakes all over the

team. But he would be the first to

1:02:201:02:27

admit that he has not been finding

his shots in the latter stages of

1:02:271:02:32

this match so far. As skip, usually

get the more difficult shots, but

1:02:321:02:40

that is why you're the skip.

1:02:401:02:46

that is why you're the skip. Is he

going to run this guard back?

Looks

1:02:501:02:53

like it.

1:02:531:03:03

There is a bit of cross your fingers

here.

1:03:041:03:16

Well, the situation just goes from

bad to worse.

1:03:181:03:27

bad to worse. Korea haven't missed

any of them. Every time they have

1:03:271:03:31

played that sort of shot, it has

been accurate.

1:03:311:03:41

been accurate.

Very difficult to

score as the stones life GB. -- as

1:03:411:03:48

the stones life for GB.

1:03:481:03:55

Kim has been pretty good.

1:04:001:04:07

Making life very difficult here for

the British skip. He's trying to see

1:04:261:04:32

which way things are going to go.

What have you got, do you think?

1:04:321:04:42

Sounds like he is ordering a cup of

coffee, a skinny half. It has been

1:04:421:04:52

partly by their own design, the

situation we are in.

1:04:521:04:59

The run back has to be accurate. He

has to hit this yellow on the nose.

1:05:121:05:23

They need something to go their way

here.

1:05:231:05:29

here. I am not convinced the middle

one will shift. It is a bit hit and

1:05:311:05:35

hope here.

I think it will, and they

don't have to squeeze it that far.

1:05:351:05:50

He likes this one. Great shot, well

done! A fist pump from Kyle Waddell,

1:05:501:05:59

they have dug themselves out of a

huge hole. They still have a lot of

1:05:591:06:04

work to do, but they have given

themselves a chance. Kyle Smith

1:06:041:06:08

comes up with the goods. What a

shot, after the one previous to that

1:06:081:06:14

had missed completely. This time, he

got it right on the nose, as he

1:06:141:06:20

said, using that red onto the line

of four, springing the two Korean

1:06:201:06:27

stones out of the back. 7-5 now.

That could have gone horribly wrong.

1:06:271:06:43

But he had the confidence to deliver

it, and hopefully that has given the

1:06:431:06:47

whole team a bit of a lift. Now they

need to find something special. They

1:06:471:06:52

have still got two ends left, sorry,

three. Korea will have the hammer in

1:06:521:07:02

ends eight and ten, but at least it

is a two shot match now.

That was a

1:07:021:07:10

great shot from Kyle Smith. And it

was nice to see a big reaction from

1:07:101:07:15

them, really getting excited. That

was what they were like when they

1:07:151:07:18

were younger. Some people would like

to see them be more mellow, but I

1:07:181:07:25

think it works for this team and

hopefully it will spur them on for

1:07:251:07:28

the last few ends.

1:07:281:07:34

the last few ends.

Korea with the

hammer. Cammy Smith putting the

1:07:341:07:41

guard up. I agree with you. If your

natural game is to be more

1:07:411:07:46

boisterous and to react, of course

when things are going wrong, you

1:07:461:07:49

don't want to go to match the other

way. But you have to be yourself.

1:07:491:07:56

Still a lot of work to do, though.

Let's not get too carried away. The

1:07:561:08:02

other team has the hammer.

1:08:021:08:12

We have not seen too much of this

tactic this week, but it is actually

1:08:151:08:18

very effective. If you are leading

in the game, you don't want to draw

1:08:181:08:24

into the centre of play. That gives

the team chasing the game something

1:08:241:08:29

else to think about.

1:08:291:08:35

It is like Cammy Smith has the

stones on a remote control at the

1:08:521:08:55

moment! You just drops them exactly

where he wants them.

1:08:551:09:06

The scores elsewhere, Japan are

leading Italy 5-3 now. It is 4-4

1:09:061:09:10

between Switzerland and Norway, and

Sweden have a stranglehold on that

1:09:101:09:16

much. It was 2-0 to Canada early on,

but we have had a lot of blank ends.

1:09:161:09:21

It is for- two in the sixth and

seventh ends, scoring four Sweden --

1:09:211:09:28

it is for - two. Canada have the

hammer in the eighth, but they are

1:09:281:09:32

two down.

1:09:321:09:43

Korea abandoned their previous

tactic. Often, when you see teams

1:09:531:09:59

doing that with their first one,

they do it with the second one.

1:09:591:10:06

Lovely draw. Very good shot from

Kyle Waddell.

It's a good start to

1:10:071:10:15

this extent. -- eighth end.

1:10:151:10:23

We will probably go back to a bit of

cat and mouse here.

1:10:361:10:49

That long guard isn't a lot of use

to GB.

1:10:551:11:02

This might go right where he wants

it.

That is perfect.

1:11:191:11:28

it.

That is perfect.

He said he has

got a chance.

1:11:321:11:43

I suppose you have got to keep

asking the question.

1:11:541:12:03

asking the question. We have had

four good stones from Great Britain

1:12:031:12:07

so far in this eighth end.

1:12:071:12:15

so far in this eighth end. To be

fair to Thomas

1:12:161:12:21

fair to Thomas Muirhead.

There is

actually not a lot in the stats

1:12:241:12:30

between these two teams, but

something the stats don't show is

1:12:301:12:35

that you can make a shot well and

then you can make a shot perfectly.

1:12:351:12:40

If you make them perfectly, it makes

things extremely different for your

1:12:401:12:46

opposition to if you have made them

well. And Korea are making

1:12:461:12:50

everything perfectly at the moment.

1:12:501:13:01

Thomas Muirhead had a change of

mind. You like it?

Yeah. The worry

1:14:101:14:18

is that the stones in the house are

not sitting that nicely for GB at

1:14:181:14:22

the moment. So they need to get

another one in there. They have done

1:14:221:14:26

a good job here. Lovely draw.

Well

swept as well.

1:14:261:14:42

swept as well.

Well, I talked about

Korean strategy earlier in the

1:14:421:14:45

game...

He might be changing his

mind. You thought he was going to

1:14:451:14:54

draw in there.

I would have been so

happy if he had, because that would

1:14:541:14:58

have played right into GB's hands.

Unfortunately, he's going for a more

1:14:581:15:05

textbook call when you're leading in

the game and you don't really need

1:15:051:15:09

to score. You want to keep things

nice and clear and open, and Korea

1:15:091:15:15

can spray at least three stones from

play here.

1:15:151:15:22

play here.

Seong has been very good

at this.

1:15:231:15:30

Now we have a very open house here.

Korea with the hammer at this end.

1:15:321:15:39

Are you sure you do not want to go

back and play the freeze, guys?

1:15:391:15:49

Seong has been brilliant.

1:15:491:15:55

Is Korea were to get two, it would

make it incredibly difficult, with

1:16:011:16:08

two ends left.

1:16:081:16:16

Thingy to try to hold on to an extra

end.

A lot needs to happen to make

1:16:301:16:36

that transpire.

1:16:361:16:42

that transpire.

It goes a little too

far.

1:16:451:16:56

That gives Korea the chance to push

it through.

1:16:581:17:08

it through.

Four down, with two to

play. Not a good situation. Sweden

1:17:081:17:15

have stolen one in the eighth

1:17:151:17:26

against Canada. Japan lead 5-4.

Switzerland Trail by the same score

1:17:271:17:33

to Norway.

1:17:331:17:38

to Norway. Kyle Smith's stats have

been trailing away as this match has

1:17:401:17:44

gone on.

That seems like a fairer

reflection, but I'm not sure about

1:17:441:17:54

the 80% per Kim.

1:17:541:17:57

Kind of second prize in some ways,

in that he has covered the red with

1:18:181:18:22

the yellow guard.

1:18:221:18:31

the yellow guard. The could draw

another one, but they do not want

1:18:311:18:39

Korea to score, so they have to be

more adventurous, but risk losing

1:18:391:18:44

three, in favour of scoring one.

1:18:441:18:50

This card will have to be pretty

close.

1:18:591:19:06

close.

First things first, they need

to get it in line on the button.

1:19:061:19:14

Even if they drift into the first

ring, they are saying the best

1:19:141:19:20

chance may be for him to go for the

double and actually stuff it, which

1:19:201:19:24

means sticking it to steal victory

that way.

1:19:241:19:32

that way.

He wants this to come in.

It curled.

1:19:321:19:43

I am surprised they did that after

the last one.

1:19:461:19:56

the last one. This could be the end

of the game, unfortunately.

1:19:571:20:06

of the game, unfortunately.

It is

fairly straightforward, this shot.

1:20:061:20:11

He does not have to do too much with

this, and it would be 10-5, and I

1:20:111:20:18

think it is the handshake.

1:20:181:20:24

think it is the handshake.

This

sheet has not been good to them,

1:20:271:20:30

they lost to Canada on it. They have

had the same kind of problems.

Be

1:20:301:20:36

played a few good shots. The first

three ends.

1:20:361:20:46

three ends.

We should not take

anything away from Korea. Sometimes

1:20:461:20:49

you play well and your opposition

just played better, which is what

1:20:491:20:52

has happened here.

You will hear

some great reaction if this is

1:20:521:20:58

effectively.

1:20:581:21:03

CHEERING I am not sure we will go

much further from here.

1:21:051:21:18

CHEERING

1:21:181:21:23

I am a little surprised, there are

two ends left.

1:21:261:21:38

two ends left. 10-5, Korea. Looks as

though they have decided to carry

1:21:381:21:40

on.

1:21:401:21:45

on.

That is a little surprising, you

do not generally play on if you're

1:21:471:21:51

more than four behind, with two to

go.

1:21:511:21:58

go.

I do not know what the thinking

is, but it is either, let's finish

1:21:591:22:05

this, let's see what happens, it is

not as if Korea have been making

1:22:051:22:09

mistakes and they could give up

three, although they took three

1:22:091:22:16

there. That would make it 10-8.

Korea with the hammer in the last

1:22:161:22:25

end, but surely they will just make

sure they are not going to make any

1:22:251:22:31

mistakes. They are sending their

stones through.

Korea know that

1:22:311:22:41

everything they put through is

something Team GB could use their

1:22:411:22:45

favour so they are not going to give

them the opportunity.

1:22:451:22:52

them the opportunity.

We will see

how this develops, it is a tall

1:22:551:23:02

order, it is lamenting for them to

claim, and I really am surprised

1:23:021:23:08

they are putting themselves through

this.

1:23:081:23:17

this. You can see the body language

if you're trying to dangle the hook

1:23:171:23:20

for the opposition to make some

mistakes, the British quartet with

1:23:201:23:28

very despondent indeed.

It will be a

long 24 hours for them as well, they

1:23:281:23:34

do not play in the draw tomorrow

morning, and then they come back for

1:23:341:23:40

Italy to night.

1:23:401:23:49

Italy to night. They played so well

yesterday against Sweden, it was

1:23:491:23:52

their best performance and they were

settled, they have not played badly

1:23:521:23:59

at all, just the odd shot.

Wrong

shot at the wrong thing, which has

1:23:591:24:05

been capitalised by the Korean team.

Seong Se-hyeon has made some

1:24:051:24:17

terrific shots.

1:24:171:24:22

terrific shots. The skip is 94% on

shots, Seong Se-hyeon is 100%.

1:24:231:24:30

Enemy, the important score 10-5.

1:24:301:24:38

Enemy, the important score 10-5. --

any way.

1:24:411:24:49

This is not only defeat to a team

you know can beat, which could be

1:24:491:24:55

heavy defeat in the end, the cliche

is that you move on and look at the

1:24:551:25:01

next match going forward, but is

there anything you would change? Or

1:25:011:25:08

just accept the other team played a

lot better on the day?

I do not

1:25:081:25:13

think so, I do not think the Olympic

Games is any time for experimenting

1:25:131:25:17

on anything like that, so, it will

be a case of going away and

1:25:171:25:24

resetting. The fact they are not

playing tomorrow is up to them how

1:25:241:25:28

they make it work for them, but it

could be a good thing. Some things

1:25:281:25:31

you want to get out and just forget

it and win the next one and get some

1:25:311:25:38

confidence that way. Some things you

need a little more time. The fact

1:25:381:25:41

that Korea lost the first four games

make this a little more

1:25:411:25:49

disappointing. That there is no

question, if they have played like

1:25:491:25:52

this in the first four games, they

would not be 0- for a Mormon.

In the

1:25:521:25:59

first match, they only got even 7-6

by Canada. We thought they might

1:25:591:26:05

have a good competition, but had

three losses since then, and got

1:26:051:26:12

themselves into an unassailable

position against Great Britain.

1:26:121:26:20

Sweden looks as if they may be

closing things out against Canada.

1:26:321:26:37

It is 5-2 at the final end. I cannot

see them losing that. Norway are

1:26:371:26:46

leading Switzerland 5-4. That keeps

Switzerland in the middle of the

1:26:461:26:54

pack, meaning they also have three

losses. It means Norway will have

1:26:541:27:00

two victories and two losses. All of

these results will be significant.

1:27:001:27:05

Japan will move onto two and two if

they were to beat Italy.

1:27:051:27:14

they were to beat Italy. Just a

little pack in the middle. If the

1:27:141:27:16

results stay that way. There are two

ends to go.

We did get a mistake

1:27:161:27:27

from Korea, the first since the

first end! Thomas has played a nice

1:27:271:27:35

draw scoring three is not out of the

question.

1:27:351:27:45

If results go the way of Great

Britain, they will not be thinking

1:27:461:27:51

about that at the moment, but it

will give them something positive

1:27:511:27:54

overnight to think about. As long as

it can still be in your own hands,

1:27:541:28:01

as long as you can still qualify and

get into the top four.

1:28:011:28:14

I am not sure that was the right

shot from Korea.

1:28:141:28:23

shot from Korea.

GB will try to

swing another round behind as a

1:28:231:28:27

result.

It is easy to lose

concentration when the match is won.

1:28:271:28:39

And you might play a couple of

stones you might not have done. They

1:28:391:28:42

are clutching at straws a little bit

here, but let's clutch them while

1:28:421:28:47

they are kicking around.

1:28:471:28:54

A tasty morsel offered up. A couple

of options here, either get rid of

1:28:541:29:06

the guard...

This looks like an easy

double to me.

1:29:061:29:13

They are going for it. At the start

of the end, they said you do not

1:29:391:29:43

want to leave a lot of stones around

when you're winning.

1:29:431:29:53

when you're winning.

What did they

decide, just on the nose?

They will

1:29:531:30:00

leave a nice pocket for Kyle

1:30:001:30:07

leave a nice pocket for Kyle. 71%

for hits.

1:30:081:30:15

LAUGHTER

1:30:151:30:20

LAUGHTER Who has been marking that?!

1:30:211:30:29

He is doing what he said he wanted

to do.

1:30:361:30:46

to do. Just looking to try and use

that to get behind that guard.

1:30:461:30:56

that to get behind that guard.

He

might leave us a triple if we are

1:30:561:30:58

lucky.

They are still hoping for a

mistake here as much as anything

1:30:581:31:03

else to try and set it up.

1:31:031:31:09

else to try and set it up.

Try that?

So back to the original decision, I

1:31:101:31:17

think. Tied up between Italy and

Japan, 5-5, Japan with the hammer in

1:31:171:31:24

their final end. And they have shook

hands between Sweden and Canada.

1:31:241:31:29

Sweden have been victorious. Niklas

Edin, eight confidence boosting win

1:31:291:31:35

for the Swedes. They were always the

gold medal favourites, Canada, but

1:31:351:31:44

Sweden are capable of toppling them.

1:31:441:31:55

That is a nice shot and it is lying

in second shot, which is useful. But

1:32:121:32:21

they really need to be scoring three

or four here. And the most they will

1:32:211:32:25

be able to score is three.

1:32:251:32:36

Tell me if I'm wrong. If I'm Korea

and I think, if Great Britain get

1:32:421:32:51

two here, fine. Just take one stone

out. Doesn't matter how or where.

1:32:511:32:55

Take one out so they can have three.

Agreed.

I am not sure what the

1:32:551:33:02

discussion is about.

If they can get

the yellow stone just played by Kyle

1:33:021:33:11

out, it will be nigh impossible for

Team GB to score even a two. I think

1:33:111:33:18

they know they have had it, really.

1:33:181:33:24

He has played a marvellous game, the

skip.

1:33:351:33:44

skip. It just knocks the other

British stone out. He is going to

1:33:441:33:50

have a look at it.

1:33:501:33:56

have a look at it. He is just

prolonging the inevitable here.

1:33:561:34:00

There is not even a shot score two,

I don't think. He has rolled into a

1:34:001:34:07

really awkward spot. I think the

handshakes will come.

1:34:071:34:22

handshakes will come.

Well, for

Great Britain, this has been a

1:34:221:34:27

disappointing match in a sense that

they lose, obviously, but it is more

1:34:271:34:30

the manner in which the second half

of the match has gone. After

1:34:301:34:34

starting so well here against

Korea... That was a good try. And

1:34:341:34:47

the handshakes finally come. Korea

get their first win on the board.

1:34:471:34:51

They played superbly well, you have

two handed to them. Kim did a great

1:34:511:34:55

job as skip. Smith didn't do too

much wrong and for a lot of the

1:34:551:35:01

match, Great Britain were playing

well, but look what this means to

1:35:011:35:03

the crowd here.

1:35:031:35:11

the crowd here. Korea have now won

one. They have lost four. For Great

1:35:111:35:15

Britain, all is not lost. But with

three losses, we can't afford to

1:35:151:35:20

lose many more. Korea win this one.

STUDIO: So its surprise defeat from

1:35:201:35:28

Smith's rink for Great Britain. We

will be back with all the reaction

1:35:281:35:33

from that one. First, where are

going to check in with the women.

1:35:331:35:35

They were on the ice earlier today,

Eve Muirhead's rink taking on

1:35:351:35:40

Denmark. They went into this one on

the back of two wins and one defeat

1:35:401:35:45

and we join the match in the eighth

end with the commentary team of

1:35:451:35:48

Jackie Lockhart and Steve Cram.

Now a great opportunity for

1:35:481:35:58

Scotland... Scotland! Great Britain.

My apologies. The girls from

1:35:581:36:03

Scotland, but they are representing

Great Britain at the Winter

1:36:031:36:06

Olympics.

1:36:061:36:11

Stirling is a centre of excellence

for curling. They have a good setup

1:36:181:36:24

there for men and women.

All of

these girls are full-time athletes,

1:36:241:36:30

on the ice every day. At least six

days in the week, they are on the

1:36:301:36:36

ice, and they are in the gym,

training as well. They have done a

1:36:361:36:41

power of preparation to get here.

It's a long week. You've got to have

1:36:411:36:48

endurance and strength. You have to

be able to recover quickly. It is a

1:36:481:36:55

lot of work, particularly for the

sweepers. And you have to keep

1:36:551:36:59

concentration levels high.

1:36:591:37:05

concentration levels high.

A slight

change in tactics there.

1:37:051:37:13

change in tactics there. Denmark

have chosen to ignore it.

1:37:141:37:20

have chosen to ignore it.

They will

be wanting to do the same if they

1:37:201:37:22

can, limit Great Britain to one.

That would mean Great Britain would

1:37:221:37:29

carry the hammer into the ninth if

they manage that, but they are up

1:37:291:37:32

against it now.

1:37:321:37:38

against it now. Still very tight

elsewhere. 4-4, USA against OAR.

1:37:391:37:44

That much is coming to an end.

Switzerland 4-3 over Sweden, Japan

1:37:441:37:49

5-3 over China. And the USA picked

up one. They did have the hammer

1:37:491:37:56

there. So it's 5-4 to the USA. That

one is very tight, similar to this

1:37:561:38:04

match.

1:38:041:38:10

match. As I say, Sweden have just

gone 6-4 against Switzerland. So

1:38:101:38:15

they continued their good form.

1:38:151:38:25

Great Britain already have a shot in

the house and they have decided they

1:38:271:38:31

have to get round this first. Which

they have done. That was a good

1:38:311:38:36

shot. The top part of the circles is

where you want to place it. Anything

1:38:361:38:43

behind is not the best for

1:38:431:38:50

behind is not the best for you,

especially when Denmark condemned,

1:38:501:38:51

and rest on top of it. -- Denmark

can then come and rest on top of it.

1:38:511:39:02

They are forcing the issue with

Denmark, keeping the pressure on

1:39:021:39:05

them.

1:39:051:39:10

Even does have the hammer here. She

has two in the house here. It would

1:39:191:39:27

not be easy to take both of them, so

you heard her same to take the top

1:39:271:39:32

one.

1:39:321:39:37

We will be four games in after this

session. Not all the teams are

1:39:461:39:50

playing every session. Canada and

Korea are not playing in this

1:39:501:39:53

session. And away the scores are the

moment, if they were to continue,

1:39:531:40:03

Japan and Sweden would be undefeated

if they hang onto the leaves they

1:40:031:40:06

have at the moment. -- the leaves

they have.

1:40:061:40:12

You can't get ahead of yourself in

the week, but you are keeping an eye

1:40:251:40:29

on how things are developing.

Yeah,

you always have an eye on teams you

1:40:291:40:35

will be playing later in the week to

see how they are progressing and how

1:40:351:40:39

their gameplay has been.

Do the

coaches watch the other games?

That

1:40:391:40:45

is a very good question. I was about

to say, on the bench the other day,

1:40:451:40:51

Kelly Schafer, as much as she

practises at night, she has her

1:40:511:40:55

spyglass is out and she is watching

to see other

1:40:551:41:02

to see other teams. She checks the

running order of the opposition, how

1:41:031:41:06

they have played. All of that

happens.

1:41:061:41:17

happens.

A bit too much there from

Vicki Adams.

1:41:171:41:23

Vicki Adams. In team sports, you

want to know about the opposition.

1:41:261:41:29

All of these teams play each other

regularly and they know each other

1:41:291:41:32

well.

1:41:321:41:38

well. It is always useful to know

who is playing and what shots they

1:41:381:41:42

are favouring.

1:41:421:41:52

She did indicate it was wide.

She

played a nice weight, but not the

1:42:131:42:20

right line.

Sir Eve wants a hit and

roll in. Anna has played better

1:42:201:42:33

today as well.

1:42:331:42:44

Anna is the only left-handed player

in the team. It would be nice if she

1:42:451:42:53

could catch this and stay in the

house.

1:42:531:43:00

house. She has just overthrown that.

That's a shame.

A look at the

1:43:001:43:04

heavens from Anna Sloan. That was

not a good shot. Not only did it not

1:43:041:43:09

catch that stone, but it took her

own out and the other one that was

1:43:091:43:15

lying at the back.

1:43:151:43:21

lying at the back. Normally, she

would be happy, she said.

We have

1:43:211:43:26

said this all week. We watched the

mixed doubles last week and it was

1:43:261:43:31

swinging 6-foot, if not more.

1:43:311:43:38

swinging 6-foot, if not more. Then

the team event happened and they

1:43:381:43:39

came on with a different set of

stones. That must be a regulation

1:43:391:43:43

they have, that the mixed event play

with one set and the teams play with

1:43:431:43:47

another. These stones are different.

She overcooked that as well, so that

1:43:471:43:55

is a couple of errors.

Both teams

are struggling now.

1:43:551:44:03

are struggling now. Let's get this

one right.

1:44:071:44:16

one right. Anna Sloan needs to do

what she normally does. Set things

1:44:161:44:21

up nicely for Eve Muirhead.

1:44:211:44:27

up nicely for Eve Muirhead. This one

is looking a bit better.

1:44:311:44:42

is looking a bit better. So they

have got their two in. Just the

1:44:421:44:44

skips left.

1:44:441:44:50

skips left.

There is an opportunity

here for a skinny double.

1:44:501:44:57

here for a skinny double. And if she

gets it wrong, she can hit and roll

1:44:581:45:01

on the face of it to sit above it.

But we have set ourselves in a good

1:45:011:45:08

position here. We have got two in

the house. They are separated.

1:45:081:45:17

the house. They are separated.

Even

if you get one here, there is the

1:45:181:45:20

hammer in the final end.

It is key

just to score.

1:45:201:45:31

Trying not to leave the double here,

if she can, or at least make it

1:45:331:45:37

difficult.

1:45:371:45:42

difficult.

Just a nice barrier?

She

has performed well down the last

1:45:421:45:50

couple of ends. We're not taking

much ice at all. Holding the broom

1:45:501:45:57

at the age of the stone.

1:45:571:46:00

You hold your breath at times when

they come down.

On normal

1:46:131:46:18

international ice, I would be

expecting it to move a lot, but it

1:46:181:46:21

isn't. Well-controlled.

1:46:211:46:30

isn't. Well-controlled.

She is just

having another look.

She's looking

1:46:301:46:35

to maybe go for the back one and

roll behind it, because there is no

1:46:351:46:40

double on there. Even if she tried

to hit the top one, the yellow would

1:46:401:46:46

still be closest to the house. Is

she trying the skinny again?

1:46:461:46:56

Dangerous. Coming down the centre,

it is not easy to judge this.

1:46:561:47:08

it is not easy to judge this. This

can end up to straight. Cubicle,

1:47:081:47:13

Denmark trying to take out both of

the British stones. Risky. She maybe

1:47:131:47:20

thinks it is time for a high risk

strategy.

1:47:201:47:25

Right on the nose. Fairly

straightforward. There is only one

1:47:321:47:35

Danish stoneware, it was never

really close. A chance to put some

1:47:351:47:45

distance between themselves and then

Mark.

1:47:451:47:52

Mark. No mistakes this time. Eve

Muirhead certainly has her game back

1:47:551:47:59

together since the halfway point.

Can chief continue that form?

1:47:591:48:04

Straightforward shot, hit it on the

nose, and sit in the house.

1:48:041:48:11

Great Britain take their two. Nobody

will leads this 7-/ now they will be

1:48:251:48:33

this 7-4. Leg well done, that was

important.

1:48:331:48:43

important.

Yellow, --, -- yes, all

games are important, but hopefully

1:48:431:48:52

this will keep sticking forward and

keep going.

The last few ends, --

1:48:521:48:59

the first few ends, things were not

coming together, did you have a good

1:48:591:49:04

chat at half time?

Yes, we had a

discussion with our tactical coach,

1:49:041:49:08

and we knew what we had to do, and

we knew would not take them lightly.

1:49:081:49:13

How were you feeling out there? What

were the conditions like on that

1:49:131:49:21

sheet?

The conditions are good idea,

we need to just make sure we deal

1:49:211:49:25

with it. All in all, the conditions

are excellent, the ice is fast, and

1:49:251:49:32

the crowd is really good.

The crowd

will be allowed to make because

1:49:321:49:36

you're playing the whole nation.

It

will be great to have a bit of

1:49:361:49:41

atmosphere, and we will use that in

our favour against the Korean team.

1:49:411:49:46

Well done to you.

That match takes

place later this morning, 11:05am,

1:49:461:49:53

on BBC One. The men have fallen to a

surprise 11-5 defeat against the

1:49:531:50:02

host nation, the only qualified

because they are the host nation.

1:50:021:50:08

Disappointing for the boys. They

spoke to Steve Cram.

Leg not the

1:50:081:50:12

result you wanted.

Disappointed.

That is a game we wanted to win. We

1:50:121:50:21

started out well, and just a few key

misses, and let the game go away

1:50:211:50:26

from us, to be honest.

Disappointed.

It seemed as though whatever you

1:50:261:50:30

did, they had an answer, they were

very good after the first couple of

1:50:301:50:35

events.

Yes, I thought we played

well, we just missed shots we could

1:50:351:50:41

not afford to miss at the times that

we could afford to miss them. They

1:50:411:50:44

are a good team. They had played

some tough games. I do not think we

1:50:441:50:54

played badly, we just missed a

couple, and couldn't do it.

What do

1:50:541:50:59

you do from here? There are still

plenty matches to come, plenty

1:50:591:51:03

chances to win, but what do you do

tonight?

We just need to go back and

1:51:031:51:09

re-grip and talk about what

happened, and some of the situations

1:51:091:51:15

at the fifth or sixth end, because

that is where the game got away from

1:51:151:51:20

us. Still a lot of curling to go,

and still some chances.

Good luck,

1:51:201:51:28

see you tomorrow.

Cheers.

1:51:281:51:33

If you have just joined us, welcome

to Pyeongchang, the ninth day of the

1:51:461:51:54

Winter Olympics.

It is the drama

that sets it apart. If you are on

1:51:541:51:56

the wrong side of the drama, it can

be pretty cruel, which is something

1:51:561:52:01

Elise Christie knows only too well.

Triple disqualification in all three

1:52:011:52:06

of her events four years ago. She

fought back to became world

1:52:061:52:12

champion, and came here to

Pyeongchang with the golden hopes of

1:52:121:52:15

the nation resting on her shoulders.

But in the 500 metres final,

1:52:151:52:21

disaster struck again. Her hand was

clipped going round the corner, and

1:52:211:52:26

the race was over. Today she was

back on the ice again, hoping to

1:52:261:52:30

take an Olympic medal.

1:52:301:52:36

Is this to be her moment?

Having

worked so hard for the 500, it has

1:52:361:52:43

just been taken away from me. I know

it is short track and I am supposed

1:52:431:52:48

to be prepared for this, but it

still hurts, you know? Right now, I

1:52:481:52:54

just can't see living with this

feeling.

1:52:541:53:03

That night was obviously pretty

rubbish. But after that, I woke up

1:53:031:53:12

and I thought about everything I

said, it is just short track, it is

1:53:121:53:15

out of my control, the video shows

it was an accident, nothing I can do

1:53:151:53:20

about it. For me, I have focused on

the 1000. I have the 1501st, so I

1:53:201:53:28

will see what I can do with that.

The 1000 is the one I will be trying

1:53:281:53:32

to get the gold medal.

It seems like

you're very philosophical, and is it

1:53:321:53:38

experience helping you get over

this?

Definitely. It was not as

1:53:381:53:46

dramatic as Sochi, I could not do

anything about it. As frustrating as

1:53:461:53:50

it is, I just have to move forward.

Thanks to everyone who has sent me

1:53:501:53:56

some lovely messages and support, it

is amazing. My two heroes, Jessica

1:53:561:54:05

Ennis, and Kelly Holmes, they both

sent me a tweet, which is amazing.

1:54:051:54:13

Sport is crazy and harsh at times,

but they have gone through things

1:54:131:54:17

like this before, and I can get

through this and the other end.

I'm

1:54:171:54:23

sure

1:54:231:54:24

through this and the other end.

I'm

sure excitement is building down at

1:54:241:54:28

the Gangneung arena. I'm joined by

Wilf O'Reilly, joining us from the

1:54:281:54:36

arena. Is that excitement building

or is it nervous?

The atmosphere in

1:54:361:54:46

the arena, I was here at about two

o'clock this afternoon, and it is

1:54:461:54:50

electric.

From the interview we have

just heard, it seems she is in a

1:54:501:54:57

good place, she just wants to get

through this and into a final and go

1:54:571:55:02

clean.

That is a very professional

approach to go about the race. It is

1:55:021:55:07

day three of the short track

competition and she is still without

1:55:071:55:11

a medal, so today, just to get in

there and get a medal, staying

1:55:111:55:15

relaxed. It was nice to see her

being so confident and relaxed day

1:55:151:55:21

after the fall. We have had

experiences from back in Sochi,

1:55:211:55:27

where she was really down and she

stayed down, but 24 hours later

1:55:271:55:30

after such a devastating evening,

she bounced back, she was on the

1:55:301:55:35

ice, she was bubbly and chirpy, and

that was all in her favour.

It is

1:55:351:55:41

such a cruel sport at times, short

track, we just saw from

1:55:411:55:50

track, we just saw from Elise

Christie, she's out of medical

1:55:501:55:53

contention -- in medal contention,

how hard is it to get out there and

1:55:531:55:56

start focusing again and hoping it

won't happen again?

At the World

1:55:561:56:04

Championships, she would probably

skate in the case of three days,

1:56:041:56:09

something in the region of 15

kilometres, the difference here is

1:56:091:56:13

that she is having a couple of days

of racing, then two or three days

1:56:131:56:17

off, then some days of racing. So

the schedule, she only gets used

1:56:171:56:24

aback at the Olympic Games, and the

last thing she did that goes four

1:56:241:56:28

years ago in Sochi. It can be

positive or negative. I think today,

1:56:281:56:33

looking at what she was saying

yesterday, looking at what she was

1:56:331:56:36

doing this morning on the ice, it is

all very positive.

There have been a

1:56:361:56:48

couple of medalists for Team GB

since she was out on the ice, the

1:56:481:56:53

factory the pressure off? She came

here as the one that everyone was

1:56:531:56:57

pinning their hopes on to get

medals. Does that release a bit of

1:56:571:57:03

the pressure?

Not just on her, but

on other athletes as well, because

1:57:031:57:07

once you have some medals in the

bag, everyone is a bit more relaxed,

1:57:071:57:11

and that will boost Elise Christie

for the 1500 metres.

We very much

1:57:111:57:17

look forward to it, the heats are

starting at

1:57:171:57:27

starting at 10am in the morning.

Very exciting stuff. One of the

1:57:271:57:32

biggest stars of the Winter Olympics

got their campaign today. Lindsay

1:57:321:57:41

Vonn is one of the greatest skiers

of all time. She won this event in

1:57:451:57:51

Vancouver in 2010, and Mr Sochi due

to injury. This could be her Olympic

1:57:511:57:56

finale here. Downhill is her best

event, and she would face a stern

1:57:561:58:04

test from the World Cup leader. Also

look out for the snowboarder who is

1:58:041:58:13

making history being the first ever

compete in snowboarding and skiing

1:58:131:58:18

at the same Winter Olympics. It

should be great up at the Alpine

1:58:181:58:26

Centre.

The women's Super-G. Vonn is the

1:58:261:58:35

biggest name, but there are plenty

with serious chances to get among

1:58:351:58:42

the Olympic medals. Much discussion

surrounding her in the build-up to

1:58:421:58:51

the Olympic Winter Games.

1:58:511:59:01

Today it is the turn of Lindsay to

to turn on the style and bring a

1:59:041:59:09

medal to the United States fans.

1:59:091:59:18

A good start for her. The starters

at 1100 metres over the course

1:59:351:59:41

length of just over two kilometres.

1:59:411:59:51

That was absolutely perfect. She's

eating up the ground.

1:59:522:00:05

This could take some beating. Vonn

starts at number one. If she

2:00:172:00:22

finishes, this could be really hard

to beat.

2:00:222:00:34

Vonn was late, that could ruin her

chances of a medal. Show lost all

2:00:342:00:38

her speed, and as a result she may

not win a medal. A huge mistake.

2:00:382:00:45

Within sight of the finishing line.

It was going so well, then she went

2:00:452:00:53

into the soft snow at the side.

If

you come in at speed it is hard, if

2:00:532:00:58

you do not then it is not hard.

2:00:582:01:05

Next to ski is Johanna Schnarf from

Italy. Not the oldest in the race

2:01:082:01:14

but one of the more experienced

athletes today. Just missed a medal

2:01:142:01:18

in the Super-G four years ago in

Sochi when she was fourth. Recent

2:01:182:01:24

form has given her a place on the

Italian team. She was sixth in Lake

2:01:242:01:29

Louise.

2:01:292:01:34

Louise. Her first visit to the

podium just prior to the Winter

2:01:342:01:38

Olympic Games. That's a wonderful

landing and turn from the Italian.

2:01:382:01:42

She's tearing it up. Johanna

Schnarf, barely moved from the tuck

2:01:422:01:49

position during that flight at the

end of what was the paradise turned.

2:01:492:01:53

She's got the reward for the brave

line. Johanna Schnarf makes a slight

2:01:532:02:02

mistake there. Now coming to the

exit of the blue Dragon Valley. As

2:02:022:02:06

to finish cleanly. Can't afford any

mistakes. If she gets it right, gold

2:02:062:02:15

medal position awaits. 0.18 in front

of Lindsey Vonn. If Schnarf is clean

2:02:152:02:24

she can take the lead. She manages

to keep the skis within the blue

2:02:242:02:30

racing blame. Has she done enough?

Yes she has. Schnarf into gold for

2:02:302:02:36

Italy.

Hi!

The Swiss pocket rocket

is ready to race.

2:02:362:02:47

is ready to race. Lara Gut, the best

Super-G skier of the season so far.

2:02:482:02:51

She was second in Lake Louise. She

finally got a World Cup medal. She

2:02:512:03:02

missed most of last season with an

injury. Not before she'd taken a

2:03:022:03:06

medal. Lara Gut on her way in the

Olympic Super-G.

2:03:062:03:22

Olympic Super-G. Lara Gut is one of

the biggest sporting 's stars in

2:03:222:03:26

Switzerland.

2:03:262:03:33

Switzerland. 40.93 for Lara Gut...

Now, what can she do on the bottom

2:03:332:03:43

part of this course? She was the

bronze medallist at the World

2:03:432:03:46

Championships in St

2:03:462:03:52

Championships in St Moritz and the

bronze medallist in the downhill

2:03:522:03:54

four years ago in Sochi. She's got

to finish with

2:03:542:04:00

to trouble the top of the

leaderboard. She's slightly late in

2:04:002:04:05

the line, drifts out beyond the blue

racing. Over the tales of her skis.

2:04:052:04:09

She's lucky to still be standing.

She skis into gold! Lara Gut leads

2:04:092:04:15

the way by four hundredths per

second. A risky finish but has

2:04:152:04:22

brought her the lead in the Olympic

Super-G. What a spectacular jump.

2:04:222:04:28

Landed on the inside ski and then

jammed the of that right ski into

2:04:282:04:34

the snow. That was her final jump.

Lara Gut has never won an Olympic

2:04:342:04:43

gold, maybe today. Tina Weirather,

great friends and training partners

2:04:432:04:47

with Lara Gut. Or she was until this

season. Tina Weirather has employed

2:04:472:04:52

the services of one of the leading

Austrian coaches. Her dad was a

2:04:522:04:59

multiple World Cup winner for the

Austrian team. Her mum a multiple

2:04:592:05:06

Olympic champion. It is in the

colours of her parents that she

2:05:062:05:14

races.

2:05:142:05:19

races. She didn't have much luck in

giant slalom two days ago but this

2:05:192:05:25

is where is she really finds her

feet. She's 11 hundredths in front

2:05:252:05:35

of Lara Gut. Might have just lost

that lead their rant then. She's

2:05:352:05:40

getting bumped around, sent to the

sides of the track when she least

2:05:402:05:44

needs it. 11 hundredths

2:05:442:05:49

needs it. 11 hundredths behind at

the last intermediate. Then she made

2:05:502:05:52

the error. This time she's got five

hundredths to play with. Lara Gut

2:05:522:05:58

leads the way for Switzerland.

Charging down the mountain comes

2:05:582:06:02

Tina Weirather Philipson star in --

comes Tina Weirather said

2:06:022:06:10

Liechtenstein. Won the hundredth of

a second. Tina Weirather into gold.

2:06:102:06:18

What a fantastic race here today. It

doesn't get any tighter. Tina

2:06:182:06:25

Weirather into gold.

2:06:252:06:32

Weirather into gold. Federica

Brignone from Italy, bronze

2:06:322:06:34

medallist in the giant slalom, has

been a World Cup winner in Super-G

2:06:342:06:39

this season. She won in Austria on

the 14th of January. Her mother was

2:06:392:06:47

a talented alpine skier, winning

four World Cup slalom competitions

2:06:472:06:52

in the late 70s and early 80s.

That's a nice turn. Did she time it

2:06:522:07:01

correctly. Federica Brignone the

27-year-old.

2:07:012:07:14

27-year-old. Drifting away from her

slightly now. 0.46 of the place. Has

2:07:152:07:21

to be 100% clean and accurate. On

the final third of this track to

2:07:212:07:26

push for a medal. Weirather leads.

Brignone has had a pretty solid run.

2:07:262:07:38

She's managed to make up some time.

It is clean and accurate and all of

2:07:382:07:42

a sudden they are all paying

attention at the base of the Olympic

2:07:422:07:47

Super-G tracked because the Italian

is flying along. A great jump from

2:07:472:07:52

Brignone. Brignone skis into fourth.

Relief for Weirather. She jumps for

2:07:522:08:01

joy. Brignone lets out a scream of

disappointment.

2:08:012:08:10

disappointment. Viktoria Rebensburg

for Germany. She could change

2:08:102:08:15

things. Olympic slalom champion in

2010. She's off to a flyer. Easy,

2:08:152:08:24

relaxed style. But that relaxed

style disguises her commitment and

2:08:242:08:29

speed across the snow which is

immense. Three times World Cup

2:08:292:08:34

winner this season in GS. Super-G

has been a happy hunting ground as

2:08:342:08:39

well. She's featured regularly in

the top ten of the World Cup races.

2:08:392:08:45

Now, can Rebensburg do some damage.

91 on the speed gun. The first

2:08:452:08:50

intermediate saw her in front, the

second shows a deficit of 0.46. I

2:08:502:08:57

think it's a lack of straight-line

speed. She accelerates up to just

2:08:572:09:05

96. Some have been as high as 99kph.

Weirather's next split is 1:03.95.

2:09:052:09:19

Rebensburg might turn things around

here. It's in an extra turn to be

2:09:192:09:24

sure of making the correct line in

towards the finish. Everybody

2:09:242:09:26

looking closely. Rebensburg tucks

into the line and she's in sick.

2:09:262:09:34

Weirather Jon Snow joy again.

Rebensburg seemed to be out of it,

2:09:342:09:40

then she was back in the green.

Eventually she finishes down and out

2:09:402:09:45

of the medals. The defending

champion is ready to go. Anna Veith

2:09:452:09:55

from Austria won the gold four years

ago. One hundredth per second up at

2:09:552:10:04

the first intermediate. The Austrian

on the course that has been set by

2:10:042:10:10

her coach, cruising through the

first ten or 11 turns. It all looks

2:10:102:10:16

good so far the Anna Veith. She's

back from injury. The lying there

2:10:162:10:21

was OK. Look at her low aerodynamic

shape. She's been longer in the tuck

2:10:212:10:27

than just about anybody else in this

race so far. She's so soft on her

2:10:272:10:31

skis. Next intermediate sees Anna

Veith trailing by half a second. She

2:10:312:10:39

won the Super-G

2:10:392:10:47

won the Super-G in December, in Val

d'Isere. We've seen some skiers find

2:10:472:10:52

time and speed in the middle part of

this track. Can she get closer to

2:10:522:10:59

Weirather's split? She's inside by

21 hundredths of a second. Anna

2:10:592:11:04

Veith is pushing to give Austria the

Super-G golden double. They won the

2:11:042:11:11

men's 24 hours ago. Anna Veith may

well defend the gold. She won four

2:11:112:11:16

years ago in Suchy. Anna Veith leads

the Olympic Super-G by a tenth of a

2:11:162:11:23

second! -- four years ago in Sochi.

Magnificent skiing from the

2:11:232:11:27

Austrian. The Austrians have

dominated this event.

2:11:272:11:39

The newly married Anna Veith leads

the way in 2018.

2:11:412:11:49

Michelle Gisin is away for

Switzerland. Shared the spoils in

2:11:542:11:58

Sochi with Tina Maser. Her older

brother Mark raised a couple of days

2:11:582:12:07

ago on this track. The family is so

talented. At the moment Anna Veith

2:12:072:12:15

leads the way for Austria. Weirather

in second.

2:12:152:12:22

in second. Lara Gut currently

holding bronze. Michelle Gisin is in

2:12:242:12:30

front by a massive margin. Almost

half a second up at the

2:12:302:12:35

intermediate. She is totally dialled

into this track. This would be

2:12:352:12:39

something for the family to get a

gold four years after Dominique took

2:12:392:12:46

gold in the downhill in Sochi. Is

Michelle still in front of the next

2:12:462:12:51

split? Six hundredths behind. The

way things stand that is good enough

2:12:512:12:58

the silver. Can she produce a fast

finish and deny Anna Veith

2:12:582:13:05

successive Olympic Super-G title.

She's gone seven.

2:13:052:13:13

She's gone seven. Michelle Gisin

happy with that, her best chance of

2:13:132:13:16

gold comes in the Alpine combined

where she was the silver medallist

2:13:162:13:20

at the World Championships last

year. Anna Veith leads with

2:13:202:13:26

Weirather in second. President of

the Austrian ski Federation they're

2:13:262:13:31

embracing the current leader who is

in tears. Still some good skiers to

2:13:312:13:35

come, though.

2:13:352:13:45

come, though. Weirather next race

for Austria. She's the last race

2:13:462:13:49

with a serious chance of

challenging. Connie Huetter has the

2:13:492:13:55

fastest split at around the six

second mark. She's in front by 100th

2:13:552:14:00

of a second.

2:14:002:14:05

of a second. Missed most of last

season with an injury but has had a

2:14:052:14:09

pretty good 2018 so far. Skidded

sideways there. Brakes on the Connie

2:14:092:14:17

Huetter, to be sure of making the

next turn.

2:14:172:14:30

The American is still in the top

five, that's incredible.

2:14:322:14:40

five, that's incredible. Lindsey

Vonn will be back next week. No

2:14:402:14:47

training for the Super-G, it's all

down to the course inspection. 0.45

2:14:472:14:55

behind, Connie Huetter. The damage

isn't as bad as you might have

2:14:552:14:59

imagined with that big ski check

sideways at the top of the course.

2:14:592:15:03

11 hundredths of a second separate

the top three.

2:15:032:15:10

Grenier good result for Connie

hooter. Would have been better were

2:15:202:15:22

not for the error. The multitalented

Ester Ledecka is next to ski, here

2:15:222:15:29

with skis and snowboards because she

is competing in the parallel giant

2:15:292:15:34

slalom event next week. Finished

23rd in the Alpine giant slalom. It

2:15:342:15:39

would be a first for Ester Ledecka,

the first ever athlete to be in

2:15:392:15:46

skiing and snowboarding at an

Olympic Winter games. Has two

2:15:462:15:52

separate training teams, one for

snowboarding, one for skiing, and

2:15:522:15:56

picks and chooses her races

throughout the regular World Cup

2:15:562:16:00

season. One minute on skis, the next

racing on her snowboard. Screaming

2:16:002:16:05

through these as she tries to keep

on track. This bead looks good.

2:16:052:16:10

Better landing for Ester Ledecka. 32

metres of flight, nicely done, soft

2:16:102:16:16

landing, continued on her way, 300

off the pace and now 18 hundredths

2:16:162:16:22

in front. Can Ester Ledecka mix

things up here? Possibly not opt

2:16:222:16:26

about landing, but the speed seemed

to remain intact. She is absolutely

2:16:262:16:32

throwing it down this Olympic

Super-G cause in Chong Sam and

2:16:322:16:37

everybody is paying attention again

now. 103.74, the Ester Ledecka still

2:16:372:16:45

in front by four hundredths of a

second. The snowboarding skier, the

2:16:452:16:51

skiing snowboarder, may well get in

amongst the medals. That would be an

2:16:512:16:55

incredible story, what a jump, she

has landed, can she do it? She has

2:16:552:17:02

done it! The Decca leads the Olympic

Super-G. Surely that is the gold

2:17:022:17:07

medal, she cannot believe it! It has

happened, it has happened.

2:17:072:17:15

Remarkable. Ester Ledecka is the

Olympic Super-G champion. What a

2:17:152:17:28

fantastic story.

No!

Yes, yes

indeed. She's done it. That is one

2:17:282:17:42

of the most astonishing Olympic

stories of all time.

2:17:422:17:49

stories of all time.

How did that

happen?!

So there is our champion,

2:17:492:17:54

the disbelieving Ester Ledecka. She

will become the first ever gold

2:17:542:17:58

medal winning athlete from the Czech

Republic in Alpine skiing. What a

2:17:582:18:04

story. An incredible story at the

Alpine Centre. Ester Ledecka doesn't

2:18:042:18:12

look like she can't believe she has

done it. She borrowed her skis from

2:18:122:18:18

Michaela Shifrin, and it has been

called one of the biggest shocks in

2:18:182:18:26

Winter Olympic history. Sensational.

She is the first person to compete

2:18:262:18:29

in

2:18:292:18:30

She is the first person to compete

in snowboarding and skiing, she is a

2:18:302:18:32

snowboarder, and will go in the

snowboard parallel giant slalom,

2:18:322:18:36

which starts on Thursday. She is

double world champion on that. There

2:18:362:18:40

could be a lot more to come from

Ester Ledecka. Sensational stuff.

2:18:402:18:46

History at the Alpine Centre, and

also history today at the Phoenix

2:18:462:18:51

Snow Park because Izzy Arnott has

become Britain's second... Sorry,

2:18:512:18:57

let me start that again! Izzy Arnott

has become the second... I've said

2:18:572:19:03

the same thing twice, haven't I? I

wish this wasn't live! Izzy Arnott

2:19:032:19:14

has become Britain's second Olympic

medallist at the snowboard

2:19:142:19:17

slopestyle, she was bronze medallist

in slopestyle, let's look at the run

2:19:172:19:21

that one it for her.

2:19:212:19:23

The biggest run of her life starts

now. Mechanical with a 450. Laid it

2:19:262:19:33

down beautifully. Locks that in so

beautifully because she comes up

2:19:332:19:41

from the side and tilts the skis

onto it.

2:19:412:19:48

onto it. Oh, and the gap over. This

run is flowing for her now.

Best

2:19:482:19:53

rail we have seen from her. 720 is

there. Come on Izzy Atkin. 900s

2:19:532:20:03

there. Final jump.

2:20:032:20:10

there. Final jump.

Oh! Super-clean.

That reverted gave her a 79.4 to get

2:20:102:20:16

into the medals she needs to

operate. By just under two points.

2:20:162:20:24

2.8 points. It is so much cleaner.

But is it a good enough run?

2:20:242:20:33

Remember we have another three women

to drop and all are capable of big

2:20:332:20:38

runs. Right now she needs to jump up

by nine points to make it into

2:20:382:20:42

silver medal position. It is a huge

gap between bronze and silver at the

2:20:422:20:47

moment.

Come Isabel Atkin. Must try

to remain impartial here and offer

2:20:472:20:59

unbiased commentary!

I twisted my

headphone cord into a right old

2:20:592:21:06

messy! LAUGHTER

It was claimed, a

lot cleaner than we have seen, and

2:21:062:21:12

look at the grab, on the switch at

the bottom she claims it, it fet go

2:21:122:21:17

-- felt good to her, third place!

84.6, Izzy Atkin with a very strong

2:21:172:21:23

moment. Just under four points off

the silver medal position so with

2:21:232:21:29

three skiers left to go, Izzy Atkin

in bronze medal position,

2:21:292:21:40

in bronze medal position, Gremaud in

silver, Hoefflin Ingold. STUDIO: She

2:21:402:21:47

will get the mess up presentation

later tonight but a small

2:21:472:21:54

presentation now. Afterwards Tim

spoke to her.

2:21:542:21:57

presentation now. Afterwards Tim

spoke to her.

What a final that was.

2:21:572:22:01

The seeds were everywhere in there.

Really weird qualifying but then the

2:22:012:22:05

best 12 in there for the final, it

could have been anyone's, talk us

2:22:052:22:09

through its.

There were tonnes of

big names in the field, it could

2:22:092:22:14

have been anyone's, and I was

standing at the bottom after my

2:22:142:22:17

third and final round and knew I had

skied the best I could, and I was

2:22:172:22:21

waiting for the last real four girls

to drop and my heart was racing.

2:22:212:22:34

to drop and my heart was racing. I

just can't believe it!

Dareus say

2:22:342:22:35

it, first Olympic medal on skis on

snow in a long, long, long time. You

2:22:352:22:38

must be overwhelmed.

I am still

speechless. I am really excited and

2:22:382:22:42

happy and just stoked with how I

skied and also stoked to win the

2:22:422:22:47

bronze.

Huge congratulations, we are

over the moon for you, well done.

2:22:472:22:51

Thank you, I am really happy,

thanks.

Yes! Good job.

2:22:512:23:00

thanks.

Yes! Good job.

Sensational

stuff. Tim and Ed have joined me on

2:23:002:23:03

the balcony, what a morning it was

for you to.

Absolutely fantastic. I

2:23:032:23:09

had some hopes but was trying to

keep them in check early on. As the

2:23:092:23:14

final started to go on it became

apparent it wasn't about progression

2:23:142:23:17

but who could lay down solid runs,

and the majority Izzy -- gratuity

2:23:172:23:23

Izzy showed in that situation was

phenomenal for a 19-year-old.

I was

2:23:232:23:29

nervous here, I don't know what you

guys were like?

I said I felt like

2:23:292:23:33

it -- I had been there before and I

had, when Jenny Jones put down the

2:23:332:23:38

run and have the agonising moment

when he had to wait for five riders

2:23:382:23:42

to come down in the same position.

You were sitting there and someone

2:23:422:23:45

failed to get the score and I would

look at Ed and would be like this...

2:23:452:23:52

Desperately trying to keep

composure. What a measured

2:23:522:23:56

performance, and coming back off the

X games silver medal, which I think

2:23:562:23:59

was a massive confidence boost for

her, brilliant, absolutely

2:23:592:24:04

brilliant.

She didn't look like she

could believe what happened

2:24:042:24:08

afterwards.

That is shot, isn't it?

I have seen shopping its true form.

2:24:082:24:13

She was deer in the headlights. I

could not compose the questions to

2:24:132:24:17

be honest, I was just so happy for

her. When it sinks in she will be

2:24:172:24:23

over the moon. I know she is anyway.

It has obviously affected us all!

2:24:232:24:29

What does it do for freestyle skiing

to have a medallist at an Olympic

2:24:292:24:35

Games?

If we put this in

perspective, you look back at just

2:24:352:24:41

how Izzy Atkin came to ski for Great

Britain. It was the GV Park And Pipe

2:24:412:24:49

programme, and the depth that showed

and the management and coaching

2:24:492:24:53

skills made her decide to ski for

Great Britain. She had the

2:24:532:24:57

opportunity to ski for the United

States, so you had skiers like Katie

2:24:572:25:02

Summerhayes came seven today,

desperately upset in the interview,

2:25:022:25:05

but she trailed braised and that

path four Izzy and now Izzy has set

2:25:052:25:11

the wheels in motion for those

behind her. We will see

2:25:112:25:21

behind her. We will see increasing

investment, as Tim said earlier, we

2:25:212:25:22

have this incredible facility in the

airbag, one of the world's leading

2:25:222:25:25

facilities which allows the athletes

to train with a soft landing on

2:25:252:25:27

those enormous kickers so I think it

will go from strength to strength.

2:25:272:25:31

Katie is not old, Izzy is only 19,

we mention those coming in behind,

2:25:312:25:35

we have exciting ones already but in

terms of the numbers, how many could

2:25:352:25:40

GB be looking at potentially

bringing in four years?

We only have

2:25:402:25:45

to look at the snowboard men. It is

near and offer full quote. We are

2:25:452:25:52

only a few results off bringing a

full quota in the men's, so next

2:25:522:25:57

Winter Olympics it could be both

freestyle skiers and snowboarders

2:25:572:26:02

bringing full quotas, men and women.

We have a lot of systems being set

2:26:022:26:07

up, pathways. Essentially if you can

grow participation in sport you up

2:26:072:26:11

your chances of finding more elite

athletes. I call it the football

2:26:112:26:15

factor, every kid who kicks a

football in the UK, you will find

2:26:152:26:20

the kids who are best because they

all do. We don't get as many kids on

2:26:202:26:23

skis but the more that participation

goes up the chances of finding more

2:26:232:26:27

people like Izzy and Katie goes up

and up, so those pathway systems

2:26:272:26:32

become more important.

It is worth

adding that Izzy is the exception to

2:26:322:26:37

the raw but still all the other

athletes learned on dry slope, they

2:26:372:26:42

were out on artificial slopes

learning and here they are at the

2:26:422:26:45

Olympics representing Team GB.

Incredible. Let's have a quick word

2:26:452:26:52

on Katie, upset after that but

incredible how many runs she could

2:26:522:26:54

put out today practically on one

leg.

Yes, through gritted teeth. She

2:26:542:26:58

works with the physio in the UK, a

guy called Darren Roberts who has

2:26:582:27:03

done very well. She hurt her ankle

two months ago, sprained a ligament

2:27:032:27:07

in her ankle, I can't remember, I'm

not a doctor, it was very

2:27:072:27:14

competitive, but she sprained her

ankle and she has done incredibly

2:27:142:27:17

well to get back here in two months,

and she hurt it in training this

2:27:172:27:22

morning.

2:27:222:27:22

and she hurt it in training this

morning. That is rotten luck for

2:27:222:27:24

her, but to ski through gritted

teeth and qualify the way she did.

2:27:242:27:29

She was heartbroken when she spoke

to, in floods of tears and her

2:27:292:27:33

sister was consoling her, but for me

I

2:27:332:27:35

sister was consoling her, but for me

I think a little perspective, to

2:27:352:27:37

make the finals, let

2:27:372:27:48

alone come seventh, was a huge

achievement, and I hope she is able

2:27:492:27:52

to, with distance, so, I did really

well today. I was really proud of

2:27:522:27:54

her.

The excitement isn't over for

you, James Woods tomorrow, what can

2:27:542:27:57

we expect from him? He has medal

hopes of his own.

Don't say it, Ed!

2:27:572:28:02

LAUGHTER

He is brilliant, we love

watching him, we love commentating

2:28:022:28:08

on him, and he is a brilliant skier,

so well respected in the ski

2:28:082:28:14

industry.

I say in full knowledge of how much

2:28:142:28:17

passion and determination varies,

Woods is the most passionate and

2:28:172:28:24

determined. Whether he takes a medal

away or not he will lay absolutely

2:28:242:28:29

everything he has much slopestyle

course tomorrow, and for me that is

2:28:292:28:32

the most exciting.

Fifth in Sochi

but injured so high hopes. Your

2:28:322:28:39

favourite bits so far?

Devin Logan

today, the American girl who

2:28:392:28:48

celebrated her qualification run,

she had a rubber hand, I absolutely

2:28:482:28:52

lost it, it tickled me!

He was in

tears. Just being a fan of the sport

2:28:522:28:59

and being able to be up there and

chat about it, being with my mate

2:28:592:29:03

and having a laugh, I loved it.

There is such wonderful camaraderie

2:29:032:29:08

because the athletes are not

competing against the clock, they

2:29:082:29:12

don't have specialist equipment,

this is stuff you buy off-the-shelf,

2:29:122:29:15

anyone can do it and you are

competing against yourself, so if

2:29:152:29:20

you land an incredible trick, it may

take a medal of someone but

2:29:202:29:24

invariably they will high five you

and say, you did amazingly, well

2:29:242:29:28

done. You have this lovely sense of

camaraderie, it is not win at all

2:29:282:29:34

costs.

Looks great and always nice

to have history to commentate on and

2:29:342:29:37

we certainly got that today with

Izzy Atkin, brilliant bronze medal

2:29:372:29:42

from her in the ski slopestyle. We

are going now to another sport with

2:29:422:29:46

the boundaries are constantly being

pushed, the figure skating got to

2:29:462:29:53

the men's free programme today, it

is the medal winning programme and

2:29:532:29:55

this is a sport that has become huge

particularly in Japan with their

2:29:552:30:00

worth huge expectations on the

Japanese entrant, the reigning

2:30:002:30:04

Olympic champion, and his bid to

become the first skater to win his

2:30:042:30:08

Olympic title -- retain his title

since Dick button got off to a

2:30:082:30:13

strong start yesterday. He leads

2:30:132:30:15

since Dick button got off to a

strong start yesterday. He leads

2:30:152:30:15

going into debate's free programme,

but his great rival Nathan Charles

2:30:152:30:20

have the worst possible day. This

series of stumbles meant he ended in

2:30:202:30:25

17th and would need to go big for a

chance of a medal.

2:30:252:30:33

Did anybody stop Yuzuru Hanyu from

retaining his gold?

2:30:342:30:44

retaining his gold? COMMENTATOR:

Now, it younger Nathan Chen. Which

2:30:442:30:48

Nathan are we going to see on the

ice today. 18 years old, so much

2:30:482:30:54

pressure on his shoulders. He's

received a real lashing in the

2:30:542:30:58

American press because of huge

mistakes in short programmes. This

2:30:582:31:06

could be great, the pressure is off.

2:31:062:31:14

Quad lutz, absolutely glorious there

to open.

2:31:362:31:43

Quadrupole flip, double toe loop.

2:31:582:32:08

Another quad flip. Hands down.

2:32:252:32:30

Quadruple toe loop. Triple toe loop.

2:33:472:33:57

And another.

2:33:572:34:03

And another.

2:34:202:34:30

This is the performance he needed to

give.

2:34:502:34:57

CHEERING

I'll show you, says Nathan Chen.

2:35:422:35:49

Write me off as a flash in the pan

at your peril. He answers his

2:35:492:35:54

critics with some whopping quads,

some brilliant skating after a very,

2:35:542:35:59

very difficult start to this

competition.

2:35:592:36:08

competition. Wow. 215.08. Look at

that technical score, 127.6 bobby

2:36:082:36:17

technicals alone.

That is a new

world record, I believe for that

2:36:172:36:24

free skate score.

And a 40 point

lead the Nathan Chen at the top of

2:36:242:36:32

the standings. Jumped up from

ranking 17th after the short

2:36:322:36:36

programmes. Now, how comfortably

will the weight of history sit on

2:36:362:36:43

the shoulders of this man? The

reigning Olympic and world champion

2:36:432:36:48

Yuzuru Hanyu looking to be the first

man to win consecutive gold medals

2:36:482:36:54

at the Olympics in 66 years, since

the American Dick button in 1948 and

2:36:542:37:01

1952. This is the Yuzuru Hanyu and

back-to-back Olympic titles.

2:37:012:37:14

His opening jump is the quadrupole

Salchow.

He's got it.

It may not

2:37:252:37:37

have appeared three times in the

warm up but it appeared when it

2:37:372:37:41

needed to happen, right in the

opening of his free programme.

2:37:412:37:48

Second quads planned. There it is.

Exquisite quadruple toe loop.

2:37:482:38:07

Triple flip.

2:38:092:38:14

CHEERING

Quadruple Salchow, triple toe loop

2:39:432:39:48

combination. He's absolutely on the

money.

2:39:482:39:59

Triple Axel loop, triple Salchow.

2:40:252:40:31

Saved on that triple lutz.

2:40:452:40:54

CHEERING

2:41:472:41:53

Yuzuru Hanyu with sales on his

skates. That surely is enough to him

2:41:532:41:58

to retain his Olympic title. He is

an earthly. He is in chanting out on

2:41:582:42:08

the ice. Look at that, the emotion

bubbling over underneath. There were

2:42:082:42:14

some mistakes in there, it wasn't

the mind blowing performance we were

2:42:142:42:20

expecting, the mind blowing

performance we saw in the short

2:42:202:42:23

programmes. That surely is Olympic

history made.

The beginning was

2:42:232:42:29

absolutely superb. He was so on the

money. That second quadruple toe

2:42:292:42:35

loop, which cost him because it

needed to be in a combination, so he

2:42:352:42:42

got knocked a downgrade but lost

points for repetition. Then also

2:42:422:42:46

with that triple lutz, but his

component scores will be extremely

2:42:462:42:53

high. We know what he's capable of.

They are in the high nines. The

2:42:532:43:01

highest composition and skating

skills of 9.75 out of ten.

2:43:012:43:13

skills of 9.75 out of ten. 9.75 now

for interpretation and composition.

2:43:132:43:16

Winnie the Pooh waiting for him as

he comes off the ice.

It's a relief

2:43:162:43:23

to him.

He was feeling the pressure.

You look at his face and he looks

2:43:232:43:32

completely composed out on the ice,

frozen almost. He is the ice. Then

2:43:322:43:38

the music stops and actually it does

boil down to four years of hard work

2:43:382:43:41

and graft.

And knowing the injuries,

knowing that he came back to this

2:43:412:43:48

programme. This is one he knew from

before and is glorious him. One of

2:43:482:43:52

the things I found out about him is

that he edits his own music. It's

2:43:522:43:57

something I did since I was a child,

he's now doing it on a computer. He

2:43:572:44:03

feels that by editing his own music

he has complete control over what

2:44:032:44:09

elements will fit where and it has

an absolute musicality. To me that

2:44:092:44:13

shows why he has the edge,

literally, when it comes down to the

2:44:132:44:19

performance. He did well not to put

his hand down there. Again, gets a

2:44:192:44:24

credit for the quad but he needed it

to be any combination. Here is the

2:44:242:44:28

lutz. Don't put the hand down...!

Goodness me.

2:44:282:44:39

Goodness me.

It's going to be

uptight tighter finish than we

2:44:412:44:44

thought.

Looking at these scores,

19.55 fit technical he's got.

2:44:442:45:04

Salchow he is the one they came to

see. We can hear the screams.

2:45:042:45:14

see. We can hear the screams. Credit

to Brian Rizzo.

2:45:142:45:18

CHEERING

2:45:252:45:25

CHEERING.

So, a new season's best given that

2:45:252:45:31

he has spent much of the season of

the ice or away from competition

2:45:312:45:36

with damaged foot ligaments.

2:45:362:45:42

with damaged foot ligaments. 317.8

five. 20 points clear at the top of

2:45:422:45:48

the leaderboard, and that, surely,

ladies and gentlemen, is your 2018

2:45:482:45:53

Olympic champion.

2:45:532:45:58

But this man will run him close.

2:45:582:46:04

Javier de Juan and a is, the two

time world champion -- Javier Calle

2:46:042:46:13

Fernandez. He is only three points

behind Yuzuru Hanyu after the short

2:46:132:46:20

programme. This is his last

Olympics. He will retire at the end

2:46:202:46:26

of this season and would dearly love

to finish with a medal.

I am going

2:46:262:46:32

to say if he goes clean with all of

the quads he could do it.

2:46:322:46:46

CHEERING

2:46:492:46:53

CHEERING.

Quadruple toe loop to open.

2:46:532:46:59

Second quads in combination.

Quadruple Salchow, double toe loop.

2:47:102:47:20

Would have liked quads- triple.

2:47:202:47:22

Triple axel, triple toe loop. Those

are the points for that triple toe

2:47:392:47:46

he didn't get after the quad.

2:47:462:47:52

Needs this second quadruple Salchow.

Just a double.

2:48:422:48:55

Triple axel. Lovely.

2:49:192:49:29

Guts and glory for Javier Fernandez.

He has won the World Championship

2:51:082:51:14

twice, never an Olympic medal,

though. He will surely come away

2:51:142:51:17

from Pyeongchang with one in his

bag. What colour will it be?

2:51:172:51:26

bag. What colour will it be? Oh...

It is a season's best, 197.66, but

2:51:262:51:32

it's not enough. Not enough for the

gold medal. It is silver, then, for

2:51:322:51:38

Javier Fernandez for now. One more

skater left to go, so he will leave

2:51:382:51:49

this Olympics with an Olympic medal,

finally. The one piece of metal work

2:51:492:51:56

missing from his trophy cabinet.

2:51:562:51:57

So, Shoma Uno knows that he must go

perfectly. He was less than a point

2:52:042:52:16

in front of gin Boyang Jin

2:52:162:52:23

perfectly. He was less than a point

in front of gin Boyang Jin. Such a

2:52:232:52:25

slender grasp on the bronze medal.

2:52:252:52:34

I absolutely love this programme.

Although we did not have a great

2:52:432:52:51

warm up.

Oh!

Down on the first of

his quads, the quad loop.

Could that

2:52:512:53:01

be a medal gone?

Three more quads

planned, and as I say, the programme

2:53:012:53:08

collectively is so strong, that he

went want to make another mistake.

2:53:082:53:16

Second quad is the flip. -- that he

will not want to make another

2:53:162:53:21

mistake. He has got it.

2:53:212:53:29

Spread eagle into triple axel.

2:55:142:55:24

Quadruple toe loop, double toe loop,

not the best landing on that double.

2:55:362:55:43

Two feet down.

2:55:432:55:48

And that was the fourth quad toe

loop, and the best one.

2:56:032:56:18

And this will be crucial. Triple

axel loop, triple flip, and that may

2:56:212:56:31

well be the bronze medal right

there.

2:56:312:56:39

Triple Salchow, double toe loop.

2:56:392:56:49

CHEERING

2:57:122:57:14

CHEERING.

Varies less than a point between

2:57:142:57:17

Chaume Gounod and no medal at all --

there was less than a point. --

2:57:172:57:23

Shoma Uno. Has he done enough to

maintain that bronze medal position?

2:57:232:57:28

Just that one mistake in there.

Missing that quad. But he pulled it

2:57:282:57:35

back. And that fight that he has

within him may well have been enough

2:57:352:57:41

to send him away from this Olympics

with a bronze medal.

You go down on

2:57:412:57:48

your first quad... He gets eight

points credit for it. It would have

2:57:482:57:53

been 12, he loses four because of

the under rotation. It was called

2:57:532:58:02

clean sewer deduction for the fall.

Geode egos down by four points. Quad

2:58:022:58:10

toe loop, double toe loop, again

that second jump is not the perfect

2:58:102:58:14

one. The last quad was the best of

all of them.

2:58:142:58:26

But he delivers such a strong

performance, and I would like to

2:58:272:58:34

think the component scores will work

in his favour it's not just about

2:58:342:58:42

the big elements, the big jumping

tricks, for this boy.

2:58:422:58:49

tricks, for this boy. And those few

jumps at the back-end of the

2:58:492:58:54

programme will also bonus points.

2:58:542:58:59

programme will also bonus points. So

he is in the low nines. For

2:59:032:59:06

components. Just over 110 points,

technical.

2:59:062:59:22

So he's just ahead of Yuzuru Hanyu

in terms of technical points. The

2:59:232:59:29

component

2:59:292:59:34

component scores...

Fare is Boyang

Jin on the left anxiously waiting to

2:59:342:59:38

find out whether he has been bumped

from the bronze medal position.

2:59:382:59:47

from the bronze medal position. Oh!

He has not only bumped Boyang Jin,

2:59:482:59:58

he has bumped Javier Fernandez, as

well. CHEERING

2:59:583:00:01

he has bumped Javier Fernandez, as

well. CHEERING.

3:00:013:00:04

So it's a Japanese 1-2, and Javier

Fernandez will have to settle for

3:00:043:00:10

the bronze.

Yes, I could see that

coming. Trying to do that mental

3:00:103:00:17

arithmetic, but what we are seeing

on the screen is phenomenal for

3:00:173:00:23

Shoma Uno.

3:00:233:00:29

History made.

Back-to-back Olympic

titles, and there are the tears of a

3:00:293:00:34

champion.

3:00:343:00:39

champion. Let's have a look at the

final confirmation. Javier

3:00:433:00:46

Fernandez, not the fairy tale gold

with which he would have wanted to

3:00:463:00:53

end his career. A fantastic final

skate from Shoma Uno.

3:00:533:01:02

skate from Shoma Uno. Back-to-back

Olympic titles Yuzuru Hanyu and he

3:01:023:01:04

will surely go down as one of the

greatest skaters there ever been.

3:01:043:01:11

I'm often scared, sometimes

petrified. When I put my helmet on,

3:01:163:01:20

I say to myself why am I doing this?

But fear is your friend. One step,

3:01:203:01:32

two steps, moving faster. No turning

back now.

3:01:323:01:39

back now. You need pinpoint focus.

3:01:393:01:43

two steps, moving faster. No turning

back now. You need pinpoint focus.

3:01:433:01:46

Peripheral vision filtering

constantly. Taking in an orchestra

3:01:463:01:49

of information. Not just using your

eyes, you're using your sense of

3:01:493:01:57

smell, the pressure in your chest,

your feeling of g-forces in your

3:01:573:02:04

neck and arms, the slightest move

can change everything. Working in

3:02:043:02:14

fractions. And then, there's calm.

3:02:143:02:21

Yes, all eyes will be on the Lizzy

Yarnold as she aims to replicate

3:02:253:02:29

that golden day in Sochi of four

years ago. After the first two runs

3:02:293:02:33

she is sitting in third place with

Laura Deas just behind her in

3:02:333:02:39

fourth. It promises to be an epic

night at the Sliding Centre. Amy

3:02:393:02:44

Williams will be there commentating.

3:02:443:02:47

night at the Sliding Centre. Amy

Williams will be there commentating.

3:02:473:02:48

How are the nerves?

My nerves are

horrendous. I've had butterflies in

3:02:483:02:53

my tummy since the moment I woke up,

knowing how major this day is for

3:02:533:02:58

Great Britain and the two girls.

You

are up there for the first two runs,

3:02:583:03:03

it was a mixed bag but both got a

really clean run down the track.

3:03:033:03:10

Lizzie's first run was outstanding.

She didn't make a single mistake and

3:03:103:03:13

flew down the track in track record

time. She

3:03:133:03:18

flew down the track in track record

time. She made three major mistakes

3:03:183:03:19

in her second run. Laura made just

one mistake and there's one corner

3:03:193:03:24

we keep seeing. Then she had an

absolute store more of a second run

3:03:243:03:31

and moved up to fourth. It's a track

that is so unforgiving. The Austrian

3:03:313:03:38

Janine Flock and Jacqueline Loelling

in the top places. We need the girls

3:03:383:03:45

to be call and calm and put down

those fast runs we know they can do.

3:03:453:03:50

How wide-open is it?

It's wide-open

enough because it's something like

3:03:503:03:59

17 hundredths between the medals.

Anything can happen and we saw that

3:03:593:04:03

in the men's race the day before.

You have to have clean runs to win

3:04:033:04:07

this race. The German

3:04:073:04:09

You have to have clean runs to win

this race. The German hasn't got the

3:04:093:04:10

fastest start but she creeps up as

she gets down the track. Our girls

3:04:103:04:15

have got awesome starts and then

they just need to hold it together

3:04:153:04:18

and there's no reason why they can't

be standing on the podium.

3:04:183:04:22

Apparently Lizzie and Laura had a

couple of the macro -- a cup of tea

3:04:223:04:27

together last night? How easy is it

to keeping is normal?

I used to

3:04:273:04:35

bring my own tea bags. It's

important to have that winding down

3:04:353:04:39

time, just feel normal, in your

slippers, in your pyjamas having

3:04:393:04:44

couple of tea. They would go with

the coaches, working on tiny steers.

3:04:443:04:51

For example Laura making sure she

nails corner nine. Lizzie holding it

3:04:513:04:55

together. We know she thrives on the

pressure. They will go to bed having

3:04:553:05:00

done all of their sled preparation,

their bags will be packed and they

3:05:003:05:04

will have got up to date and done a

bit of warming up. They will have

3:05:043:05:10

loosened up, done some stretching

and then normal process like any

3:05:103:05:13

other runs.

How important is it to

have the two of them? Will they take

3:05:133:05:20

it through together or is it all

about yourself and focusing on you?

3:05:203:05:24

Once you're at the track and in the

changing room, it's your internal

3:05:243:05:28

focus. You could be friends with

everyone outside of that one moment

3:05:283:05:33

of your race day, once you're on the

start line it's each to their own.

3:05:333:05:39

Afterwards you're cheering and

congratulating and then you're all

3:05:393:05:43

friends again. When you're on the

start line it is you and your sled

3:05:433:05:47

and the ice in front of you.

Today

must have felt like the longest day

3:05:473:05:52

for them. Here it is already 6pm and

they still aren't going for a couple

3:05:523:05:57

of hours. They've had a long way to

get the second run going. How much

3:05:573:06:04

will Lizzie's experience her power?

Is quite unique when you race over

3:06:043:06:09

two days and that is just a World

Championships and Olympic Games.

3:06:093:06:14

Laura has done the World

Championships. They know this

3:06:143:06:17

two-day system but it's still hard.

Especially when you're almost in the

3:06:173:06:21

medal position or you are in a

middle position. You've got a hold

3:06:213:06:26

together and try not to burn that

nervous energy. Probably a few cups

3:06:263:06:32

of tea along the way.

Talk us

through what your preparations were

3:06:323:06:37

like. What did you do in Vancouver

when you had to wait to get back out

3:06:373:06:41

on the ice?

I had the same

situation. Overnight I knew I was in

3:06:413:06:46

the lead and you've just got a hold

it together. I like to distract

3:06:463:06:52

myself. Whether that's watching a

movie or hanging out with other

3:06:523:06:57

nations. Pretending it wasn't the

next day and that I might win a

3:06:573:07:05

medal, being with the physio or

whoever it might be in the team. I

3:07:053:07:09

remember going to the Team GB house,

having a chinwag, a cup of tea.

3:07:093:07:15

There's a familiar theme here!

But

still doing everything you'd

3:07:153:07:19

normally do. I'd do a little bit of

gym session, keep my muscles away,

3:07:193:07:24

doing your stretching. The others do

fill up by the time your pet in the

3:07:243:07:29

mealtimes and checking your

equipment. There isn't that much

3:07:293:07:32

time in the day and you're trying to

do the normal things.

Who will be

3:07:323:07:36

feeling most nervous? Lizzie has

been there before but has that

3:07:363:07:41

expectation on her. Laura first time

but she knows she's close to getting

3:07:413:07:47

a medal of own.

I'm sure they are

feeling the same but for different

3:07:473:07:52

reasons. Lizzie wants another gold

medal. She wants another medal, full

3:07:523:07:59

stop. Laura is so close to it, we

are talking hundredths of a second.

3:07:593:08:04

She knows if she gets clean runs

she's got one of the fastest pushes

3:08:043:08:08

out there. There's no reason why she

can't also be gold, silver, bronze.

3:08:083:08:13

Both of them for different reasons

but hopefully super Saturday today,

3:08:133:08:17

we could get some more.

Dom Parsons

one yesterday. He got his medal

3:08:173:08:23

presented to him last night. There

is a skeleton medal in the Team GB

3:08:233:08:27

camp. We'll either of them have

looked at it, touched it ahead of

3:08:273:08:33

tonight?

I saw it last night and got

so excited,

3:08:333:08:38

tonight?

I saw it last night and got

so excited, every medal is magic. It

3:08:383:08:41

brings magic into the team. The

skeleton team are in such a good

3:08:413:08:44

place. They were in a good place

beforehand, and to have one of the

3:08:443:08:49

guys have a medal, do that for the

team, it's like a pat on the back

3:08:493:08:54

for the performance directors, the

coaches, for everyone. I hope it's

3:08:543:09:00

brought that magic into all of the

sports. We've just had hours ski

3:09:003:09:06

slopestyle, we hope Elise Christie

is going to do well. Laura and

3:09:063:09:10

Lizzie to know their team-mate has

got a medal for the skeleton is

3:09:103:09:14

going to boost them.

It will fire

them up because they will want a bit

3:09:143:09:18

of that action as well.

Of course

they do. Laura wants a medal and

3:09:183:09:23

Lizzie wants a second one.

We are

all hoping for gold. What you would

3:09:233:09:29

be a successful night tonight?

Clearly bringing one home is

3:09:293:09:33

definitely doable but I feel like we

could bring two. If both of them

3:09:333:09:38

keep their calm, keep their cool and

nail corner nine then there's no

3:09:383:09:44

reason why both of them can't be

standing on that podium. They are

3:09:443:09:49

two athletes in the peak of their

life and they can both do it.

It

3:09:493:09:54

could

3:09:543:09:55

life and they can both do it.

It

could be super Saturday indeed.

3:09:553:09:56

Enjoy tonight if you can through the

nerves! Those first runs getting

3:09:563:10:01

underway at 1120 AM your time. There

will also medal hopes today on beast

3:10:013:10:12

D slopestyle. Lizzie Arnott picked

up a silver medal in the X Games

3:10:123:10:16

last month and she was hoping for

another medal in Pyeongchang. It

3:10:163:10:21

would be historic because Team GB

had never officially won a medal on

3:10:213:10:28

skis. Katie Summerhayes from Great

Britain in amongst the field, she

3:10:283:10:30

was hoping to build on a seventh

place finish in Sochi but she was

3:10:303:10:36

struggling with a bit of an ankle

injury. To take you through the

3:10:363:10:41

action it is our boys in the box. .

3:10:413:10:48

injury. To take you through the

action it is our boys in the box. .

3:10:483:10:50

COMMENTATOR: Katie Summerhayes has

been told by the GB physio it may

3:10:503:10:55

not be in her best interest to ride,

her ankle is giving her a lots of

3:10:553:11:00

pain. She has bottled some courage

and is on the course.

Very strong

3:11:003:11:08

rail rider. This course suits her

style. She had a 4.50 out of that in

3:11:083:11:19

qualifying and it was very strong.

The cleanest we've seen her slide

3:11:193:11:23

across that pyramid. Which one out

of the track?

3:11:233:11:34

of the track?

5.4 zero. Switch into

the second jump. Really nice from

3:11:343:11:41

Katie. Just needs to get this score

down. 900 to the knuckle. But point

3:11:413:11:49

have done her ankle any good at all.

This is the last kick, 900. Really

3:11:493:11:59

nice. Could have been a bit bigger

maybe. Three more runs to go after

3:11:593:12:03

this. Worked really hard with Darren

Roberts to get herself match fit. At

3:12:033:12:12

the moment she's in first. Next

3:12:123:12:21

the moment she's in first. Next in

is Yuki Tsubota from Vancouver.

A

3:12:233:12:25

different line coming off that rail

and then into the course. Getting

3:12:253:12:31

really busy, which is what you want

to see. Good flow. Keeping the skis

3:12:313:12:39

in one direction or the other

between the jumps. There's that

3:12:393:12:43

cheeky flip off the saddle. It won't

score super high, it's more of a

3:12:433:12:50

setup feature. A collective sigh

from the shape is on the knuckle. A

3:12:503:13:00

big 900. Two and a half rotations.

Into the bottom jump. Solid.

Very,

3:13:003:13:05

very clean. To me this is a

qualifying run. It's almost like

3:13:053:13:13

putting the score on the board,

rather than really going for your

3:13:133:13:18

best run. Yuki Tsubota gets the

absolute classic 75 from the judges.

3:13:183:13:25

Sarah Hoefflin, Swiss father, New

Zealand mother, grew up in England.

3:13:253:13:32

She was very interested in joining

the GB Park and pipe programme but

3:13:323:13:37

couldn't get a British passport.

Really nice. She charges, this

3:13:373:13:45

girls. Really good float. The judges

like to see.

She had be an enviable

3:13:453:13:55

task of opening qualifying but the

first run and was impeccably clean

3:13:553:13:59

with that first run. We saw her

qualify very comfortably.

She's got

3:13:593:14:04

some big kicker tricks when she

wants them.

3:14:043:14:13

wants them.

Beautiful Switch ten. So

consistent. Needs to spend the

3:14:133:14:17

opposite way to impress the judges,

which she does. That is why she

3:14:173:14:21

claimed X Games gold in a few weeks

ago.

Backwards 720 into anti

3:14:213:14:32

clockwise switch 720. Very

impressive, the spin immaculate both

3:14:323:14:36

ways.

Halfway through the finals,

Sarah Hoefflin moves into first

3:14:363:14:40

place. Back up to the top now, fifth

placed qualifier Mathilde Gremaud

3:14:403:14:49

from Switzerland.

3:14:493:14:54

from Switzerland.

Really nice.

Not

as tidy as qualifying but still very

3:14:553:14:59

technical.

A lot of things going on

during that.

Lining up that gap out

3:14:593:15:06

on the double pink switch which is

harder than it looks.

360 tale of

3:15:063:15:14

the saddle. First jump... Bit short.

Come on now, Tuck. Get some speed.

3:15:143:15:22

You've really got to flow... Silky

900.

It was. Very, very smooth.

3:15:223:15:29

First of the double corks. There it

is! Huge double corker 900!

3:15:293:15:37

Brilliant.

3:15:373:15:42

No surprise to see Mathilde Gremaud

move into the top spot here.

3:15:433:15:51

move into the top spot here.

She's

happy with that.

Very happy and

3:15:523:15:56

rightly so, I think it's going to

clip the 90s.

88, still very good.

3:15:563:16:03

Now we come to Britain's Isabel

Atkin, the 19-year-olds, silver in

3:16:033:16:09

Aspen X games two weeks ago. She has

the pedigree and undoubtedly the

3:16:093:16:16

ability. 450 out, lovely, technical.

Transferring, locking into that rail

3:16:163:16:24

really nicely.

3:16:243:16:32

really nicely.

Huge gap on the down

bar, little hand drag, 360 of the

3:16:323:16:37

saddle, come on, Izzy Atkin.

3:16:373:16:44

saddle, come on, Izzy Atkin. Back on

the 720.

Tiny sit down but she winds

3:16:443:16:48

up into the nine.

Switch nine here.

With a revert, puts it down just

3:16:483:16:59

past 900, reverts to 1080, not the

cleanest landing but looking at

3:16:593:17:03

that, you can't guess whether she

was going for a switch ten or a

3:17:033:17:08

switch nine.

I think it was nine.

3:17:083:17:15

switch nine.

I think it was nine.

It

is the best of three runs, though,

3:17:153:17:18

so not all doom and gloom for Izzy

Atkin just yet.

68.4 puts in fourth

3:17:183:17:25

place just behind Yuki Tsubota.

Johanne Killi of Norway.

One of the

3:17:253:17:35

odds-on favourites for the gold

medal here.

3:17:353:17:41

medal here.

She took silver in big

air in the X Games.

This will hurt

3:17:413:17:49

her...

Oh!

I was going to say going

so slow is what will hurt and that's

3:17:493:17:54

really not only points wise, she

just didn't have enough speed.

Emma

3:17:543:18:01

Dahlstrom, can she set the bar just

as high here? Opting not to use

3:18:013:18:07

poles. Same trick as Izzy Atkin.

Right spinner. 270 of the double

3:18:073:18:23

kink, sliding all the way through it

then making her way to the left side

3:18:233:18:27

of the course with this big down

bar, again using grab. Really hooks

3:18:273:18:34

into that back lifts.

Clean through

the top section for Dahlstrom.

Oh!

3:18:343:18:42

Couldn't get it round. So Emma

Dahlstrom is human after all!

Let's

3:18:423:18:49

take a look at the standings after

run one. Gremaud, Hoefflin and

3:18:493:18:54

Tsubota in the top spot, Atkin and

Summerhayes just outside the top

3:18:543:18:58

five.

3:18:583:19:03

five. OK, so, Maggie Voisin, the

woman who broke her leg just before

3:19:033:19:06

Sochi and was unable to compete,

soaking up the experience here in

3:19:063:19:10

Pyeongchang, drops in for second

run, tidy first rail.

Charging the

3:19:103:19:17

top section.

Beautiful flow, we have

said that time and again with her

3:19:173:19:22

runs, she is super relaxed.

Not

trying to get rid of speed, hitting

3:19:223:19:26

everything perfect, everything up a

write speed, and into the jumps,

3:19:263:19:30

three jumps, then. The first, really

nice, 900.

Taking off, switch...

3:19:303:19:44

Switch 900.

Back-to-back nines. Is

it a ten? Oh! And again, the final

3:19:443:19:54

jump proves her undoing. Maggie

Voisin will have to put it all on

3:19:543:19:59

the line

3:19:593:20:04

the line in-run three. Next in,

Jennie-Lee Burmansson, wisdom and

3:20:043:20:09

way beyond her years, just 15 years

old, and she has skied very, very

3:20:093:20:15

mature only in the qualification.

She stays on her feet, you'd have to

3:20:153:20:23

say, if she does, she's one of the

favourites for the gold, even with

3:20:233:20:27

one of her stock runs, she might not

have to press the accelerator too

3:20:273:20:31

far if she just find the

consistency.

Got to that rail a

3:20:313:20:36

little bit early. The judges will be

looking for any way to penalise

3:20:363:20:43

these skiers. Little butter of the

top. Now into the jumps.

A very,

3:20:433:20:51

very relaxed style.

3:20:513:20:56

very relaxed style.

Put it into the

front. Now final jump.

She has gone

3:21:003:21:06

very, very light.

Yes...

Oh, she's

gone! Wow!

I don't know where... I

3:21:063:21:15

think to be brutally honest, falling

over in the finish area, I don't

3:21:153:21:19

know where the points come off for

the judges.

65.

I think they let it

3:21:193:21:28

slip.

Pat Sharples gently talking to

Katie Summerhayes, they have been

3:21:283:21:35

working together I think for nearly

a decade now. The relationship key

3:21:353:21:41

to Katie's success. She came so

close in Sochi, can she make it

3:21:413:21:47

count here in 2018?

She's had an

ankle injury and been advised by the

3:21:473:21:55

physio not to even ski in this

final. She is doing it through

3:21:553:21:59

gritted teeth. And there is the 450

out, that is nice.

Beautiful.

Really

3:21:593:22:07

solid rails from Summerhayes.

She

has that slide nicely, she's locked

3:22:073:22:11

those two together.

3:22:113:22:16

those two together. The rails were

definitely jump why she is hitting

3:22:183:22:20

that slightly smaller jump. That

will cost a few jumps for sure.

3:22:203:22:27

Switch five.

3:22:273:22:32

Switch five. And a big 900, she

punches the air, come on, Katie

3:22:333:22:38

Summerhayes.

That is a fantastic

platform to roll into the third and

3:22:383:22:42

final run. So, Katie, I think,

certainly felt like the first score

3:22:423:22:48

was a bit low. Let's see the second

score, 71.4, yes, little nod of the

3:22:483:22:56

head there, not her biggest tricks

all the way through, maybe the

3:22:563:22:59

smaller kicker. Next to drop, Isabel

Atkin. She is one of the world's

3:22:593:23:09

best, she proved a discount two

weeks ago at X Games when she took

3:23:093:23:13

silver.

3:23:133:23:18

silver. Lovely, 450 off.

Really

nice.

3:23:183:23:24

nice. Cutting across onto the down

rail. Huge gap.

Love that. So many

3:23:243:23:35

of the women not going for that gap,

kind of riding up an along then

3:23:353:23:41

looking into that rail. Landed much

cleaner than last time.

So the

3:23:413:23:49

judges looking for spins in

different directions.

And nine is

3:23:493:23:52

clean.

Right side had left side

spins, now switch, 900 on the bottom

3:23:523:23:58

jump.

And it is very, very tidy.

What a coup it would be to move into

3:23:583:24:05

the third and final runs on a medal

position. Putting the pressure on

3:24:053:24:11

everyone else. She is currently sat

in fifth with a 68.4, and to move

3:24:113:24:19

into the bronze medal position she

needs 74.4. 79.4. She does it with

3:24:193:24:26

five points to spare, Izzy Atkin

moves into the bronze medal

3:24:263:24:29

position.

3:24:293:24:38

Johanne Killi qualified in third

place.

3:24:393:24:50

That was the double kink she messed

up in her first run. Very clean

3:25:013:25:05

through the rails, finishes those

with a switch 180 of the track.

3:25:053:25:12

with a switch 180 of the track. Puts

down the 720 of the skewed take off,

3:25:133:25:17

rotating with the direction of

travel. Left and right spin, comes

3:25:173:25:23

into the final kicker, switch,

writes Ben, very, very clean, very,

3:25:233:25:29

very tidy there.

Really nice from

the Norwegian.

The Vikings already

3:25:293:25:33

celebrating. We are going to see

this go directly up against Izzy

3:25:333:25:41

Atkin's Stroe core intervals of

difficulty, technicality and

3:25:413:25:45

cleanliness. If you add up the

numbers, spins on that, 720, 900,

3:25:453:25:54

720. 76.8, so it is fourth position

for the Norwegian. Only one run left

3:25:543:26:02

to drop. The medals at the moment

look like this, Mathilde Gremaud in

3:26:023:26:10

gold, Sarah Hoefflin in silver,

Great Britain's Isabel Atkin in

3:26:103:26:14

bronze, Johanne Killi of Norway in

fourth. Yuki Tsubota in fifth, Katie

3:26:143:26:21

Summerhayes riding that extremely

painful ankle in six. Shadow boxing

3:26:213:26:28

from the 15-year-old Burmansson. She

has come out of nowhere. She has

3:26:283:26:34

been I think Junior world champion,

no, silver, then she turned up in

3:26:343:26:39

the World Cup this year and

dominated.

Yes, and that bronze

3:26:393:26:43

medal...

There has been no

transition period.

She just came

3:26:433:26:49

straight through and that bronze

medal in X Games a few weeks ago

3:26:493:26:52

would have done the world of good

but look at this girl, she won gold

3:26:523:26:57

in that same contacts and you that

would do her the world of good.

The

3:26:573:27:02

X Games is the closest they have in

terms of pressure to the Olympic

3:27:023:27:06

environment so it is a decent

barometer, but... Maggie Voisin

3:27:063:27:12

struggling at the moment to

replicate that form. She has looked

3:27:123:27:15

this good on the rails every time,

but it's the last jump that has

3:27:153:27:19

eluded her.

So strong through the

rails, as you said.

Now, the focus

3:27:193:27:27

on the pressure boils down to the

kickers. Lovely nine on the first

3:27:273:27:34

hit.

Really nice there.

She's got

that one, can she hold it together

3:27:343:27:43

now when it matters?

She's gone big.

Yes, she can. A very, very clean

3:27:433:27:50

run, and suddenly she snaps out of

that relaxed, composed skiing mode

3:27:503:27:57

and let fly there as she arrived in

the finish area, great style and

3:27:573:28:01

composure and incredibly technical.

That is the Maggie Voisin we know.

3:28:013:28:08

She didn't look fast by those two

falls.

3:28:083:28:18

falls.

81.2! Third place, she bumps

Izzy Atkin down into four. Now it is

3:28:183:28:25

the turn of Katie Summerhayes. She

came so close four years ago in

3:28:253:28:32

Sochi. Big smile on her face now.

Really down to earth, one of the

3:28:323:28:38

most well liked women on the

freestyle skiing World Cup tour.

3:28:383:28:46

Makes her way onto this course for

the third and final time.

270 out of

3:28:463:28:52

that down Bath. I think that was the

450 that she wanted from earlier on,

3:28:523:29:03

but unable to replicate that.

So she

has lost one of the big scoring

3:29:033:29:12

points out of her run there. 540,

very much a setup for this jump. And

3:29:123:29:22

she's letting this run go. You

cannot blame her. If you haven't

3:29:223:29:29

gone hard on this up until now...

Oh, Katie! She is skiing with a very

3:29:293:29:35

badly damaged ankle. Then his her

sister Molly. She can barely walk

3:29:353:29:41

out of a ski boot. She really tags

that knuckle.

3:29:413:29:53

that knuckle.

Yes.

They are all

after her, she said it, she is one

3:29:533:29:59

of the most liked.

Hoefflin has the

run, the consistency, the style and

3:29:593:30:07

technicality to take the top spot.

She also has the very big jump

3:30:073:30:11

tricks, big air gold medallist that

the X Games enough spin a few weeks

3:30:113:30:15

ago, can she throw these big jump

tricks into this run alongside these

3:30:153:30:20

rails?

3:30:203:30:26

Very tidy. Maybe not her cleanest

rail jumps but there were no

3:30:263:30:30

mistakes there.

3:30:303:30:36

mistakes there. Lovely style, lovely

style.

Big grab. Really snatching at

3:30:363:30:44

the 1080.

Went huge on that.

Gets it

round! She crashed on that on her

3:30:443:30:54

second run.

The Swiss are making a

very good case at a lock-out of gold

3:30:543:31:04

and silver. Sarah Hoefflin, a very,

very strong run. She's currently on

3:31:043:31:11

an 83.8. I wouldn't be surprised if

we see this overhaul Mathilde

3:31:113:31:16

Gremaud, who is in gold medal

position on an 88.

3:31:163:31:25

position on an 88. 91.2, that puts

her into gold medal position. Ten

3:31:253:31:28

points ahead of bronze, Maggie

Voisin.

3:31:283:31:35

Voisin. Next in is Mathilde Gremaud.

Unseated from the top spot by her

3:31:353:31:40

fellow countrywomen Sarah Hoefflin.

Can she really gain the gold spot?

3:31:403:31:46

-- really gain.

3:31:463:31:50

Switch up.

Really nice that. Switch

gap onto the last part of that rail.

3:31:543:32:05

Good flow through the rails, really

nice. Great execution. Super clean

3:32:053:32:11

in that top section.

A little short

on the 720. Now Tuck. Remember,

3:32:113:32:19

speed is your friend. Big 900.

Slightly off access. Now, final...

3:32:193:32:27

Are we going to see the double ten?

No. She didn't give it enough, she

3:32:273:32:32

lost her grab. We now have our three

current medal positions. Bronze,

3:32:323:32:42

silver and gold in the finish area.

Next to drop will be Great Britain's

3:32:423:32:49

Izzy Atkin, currently in fourth

position. A medal so tantalisingly

3:32:493:32:56

close she can touch it. What has she

got in her run? Pat Sharples just

3:32:563:33:02

said you're an absolute boss, your

skiing amazing.

That's the advice,

3:33:023:33:08

just clean this run up. The biggest

run of her life starts now.

3:33:083:33:15

Mechanical with the 450. Laid it

down beautifully. Locks that in so

3:33:153:33:24

beautifully, because she comes up

from the side until the skis onto

3:33:243:33:27

it. The gap over. This run is

flowing for her now.

The best rails

3:33:273:33:36

we've seen from her. The 720 is

there. Now, on Izzy Atkin. 900 is

3:33:363:33:46

there. Final jump...

3:33:463:33:53

there. Final jump...

It super-clean.

That reason at gave her a 79.4. To

3:33:533:34:00

get into the medals she needs to up

it by just under two points. 1.8

3:34:003:34:08

points. It's so much cleaner. Its

third-place!

84.6, Izzy Atkin with a

3:34:083:34:18

very, very strong run, just under

four points of the silver medal

3:34:183:34:22

position.

The Swede at 25 years old

breezed through her first run with a

3:34:223:34:33

91.4. She's tried to channel that

same spirit but certainly the

3:34:333:34:38

pressure is telling now on the third

and final run. She's yet to land a

3:34:383:34:43

run at Phoenix Park. Can she do it

now?

I feel like I've been in this

3:34:433:34:52

place before. Four years ago women's

snowboard slopestyle. Will you be

3:34:523:34:59

the same outcome?

3:34:593:35:06

the same outcome? Emma Dahlstrom

going smooth and tidy there, into

3:35:063:35:08

the backflip.

3:35:083:35:13

the backflip.

She's down! And that,

ladies and gentlemen, confirms the

3:35:163:35:23

medals. Great Britain's Izzy Atkin

takes bronze. Mathilde Gremaud and

3:35:233:35:29

Sarah Hoefflin make it a 1-2 in

silver and gold for Switzerland. It

3:35:293:35:35

is a second bronze medal for Great

Britain. That is a very welcome

3:35:353:35:41

sight.

3:35:413:35:45

What a final that was. The seeds

were everywhere. It was a really

3:35:523:35:57

weird qualifying but then all the

best 12 in there for the final, it

3:35:573:36:01

could been anyone. .

There with lots

of big names in the field it could

3:36:013:36:05

have been anyone's. I was standing

at the bottom after my final run, I

3:36:053:36:11

knew I had skied the best I could. I

was waiting for those last three or

3:36:113:36:15

four girls and my heart was racing.

I

3:36:153:36:18

four girls and my heart was racing.

I can't believe it.

Dare I say it,

3:36:183:36:23

first Olympic medal on skis on snow

in a long, long time must be pretty

3:36:233:36:27

overwhelming.

I'm still speechless.

I'm really excited, I'm really happy

3:36:273:36:33

and I'm stoked with how I skied and

also stoked to win the bronze.

3:36:333:36:39

It was sensational stuff at the Snow

Park from Izzy Atkin. She will get

3:36:413:36:46

her medal presentation tonight.

First a little mascot at the slopes

3:36:463:36:52

there, the Pyeongchang mascot. It

was a brilliant start to what could

3:36:523:36:57

be a memorable day in Pyeongchang.

Not only does

3:36:573:37:02

be a memorable day in Pyeongchang.

Not only does Lizzy Yarnold get

3:37:023:37:04

underway but Elyse Christie is

desperate to make some happy Olympic

3:37:043:37:07

memories. Triple disqualification in

Sochi followed by disappointment in

3:37:073:37:12

her 500 metre final. Here she is

warming up ahead of her 1500 metre

3:37:123:37:19

heats at 10:20am and goes all the

way to a final tonight.

3:37:193:37:24

heats at 10:20am and goes all the

way to a final tonight. Elise

3:37:243:37:25

Christie isn't the only athlete to

suffer continuous disappointment on

3:37:253:37:30

the ice. It took one American a

decade, four Olympic Games and eight

3:37:303:37:36

races to finally claim his medal.

This man is the very definition of

3:37:363:37:41

never giving up.

3:37:413:37:46

Going into the 1988 Olympics and

being the favourite for gold for the

3:37:503:37:55

500 metres under 1000 as well. My

sister was diagnosed with leukaemia

3:37:553:38:00

about a year before the Olympics.

She passed away on the morning of

3:38:003:38:04

the 500 metres.

COMMENTATOR:

He's

pledged his

3:38:043:38:09

the 500 metres.

COMMENTATOR:

He's

pledged his medal to her.

My left

3:38:093:38:11

skate slipped out from under me and

I fell.

That is tragedy.

It was one

3:38:113:38:18

of the most difficult days of my

life.

Dan Jansen has fallen again!

3:38:183:38:25

For some reason it wasn't meant to

be, but I never, ever considered

3:38:253:38:30

giving up. I had one more chance in

1994. I was ready and it worked out.

3:38:303:38:37

The world record has gone to Dan

Jansen.

I set a world record and I

3:38:373:38:43

won gold.

The gold medal to Dan

Jansen. It was his last jobs in his

3:38:433:38:47

fourth Olympics.

3:38:473:38:53

fourth Olympics.

Christie is out of

it once again!

These games are not

3:38:533:38:57

over.

She crashed out of the final

four years ago, and history repeats

3:38:573:39:04

itself in Korea.

Forget about

expectations, you don't give up, you

3:39:043:39:09

believe in yourself and you go until

you've crossed the line in your last

3:39:093:39:13

race. Ask yourself, in 20 years from

now I want to be able to look back

3:39:133:39:19

and know there is not anything else

I could have done to be at my best.

3:39:193:39:22

If you can answer yes to that

question for the rest of your life

3:39:223:39:26

you'll never have a regret.

3:39:263:39:32

An incredible story from the Winter

Olympic archives. We are going to

3:39:323:39:37

stay on the ice because the ice

hockey has reached the knockout

3:39:373:39:41

stages. The quarterfinals got

underway, Switzerland will bronze

3:39:413:39:45

medallists in Sochi four years ago.

Today they face Olympic Athletes

3:39:453:39:50

from Russia for a place in the

semifinals. Here's how it played

3:39:503:39:52

out.

3:39:523:39:58

COMMENTATOR: This is an opportunity.

Now what a chance.

3:39:583:40:11

Now what a chance. They score! Huge

blow for Switzerland so early on.

3:40:113:40:17

The Swiss now lead a double

short-handed marker, and Anna

3:40:173:40:26

Shokhina. Shokhina nipped in, used

her speed on the outside and then

3:40:263:40:33

found the back of the net. The

Olympic Athletes from Russia take a

3:40:333:40:39

surprise lead here. What a finish

that was.

3:40:393:40:51

The Swiss have defined a way back

into this game. Trailing by one.

3:40:523:40:57

They have such a good group. Many

were predicting this team to go on

3:40:573:41:02

and create something.

3:41:023:41:12

Alina Muller! Something special. 19

years of age and that is her seventh

3:41:133:41:18

of the tournament. Now she's chasing

down records. Two away from scoring

3:41:183:41:25

the most goals in the tournament.

She's tied this game more

3:41:253:41:30

importantly now. Alina Muller,

wonderful pass and Alina Muller

3:41:303:41:38

inside out, forehand backhand.

Amazing goal. Maybe that will fire

3:41:383:41:42

the Swiss up now.

3:41:423:41:49

the Swiss up now. Muller on target

once again. She's one of the

3:41:493:41:51

superstars of the winning's game.

Meier helps it into the offensive

3:41:513:41:58

zone. They need to use their power

plays a little better. Meier holds

3:41:583:42:03

again.

3:42:033:42:08

Good play from Muller to keep this

one alive. Big shop front Meier,

3:42:143:42:21

bounces of the backboards. Now

finally be Russians can clear but

3:42:213:42:27

Stalder will hold it again. Here's

Muller. Stalder walking in... Now it

3:42:273:42:32

could be a bit of danger.

Switzerland will try and reset this

3:42:323:42:38

one. Stalder walking in, this could

be a chance. Power-play goal for the

3:42:383:42:47

Swiss.

3:42:473:42:52

Swiss. Stalder taking advantage.

Rattles it home and the Swiss lead.

3:42:533:43:01

Their Winter Olympic Games is back

on track. They trail in this one.

3:43:013:43:11

But now a great release this. Write

out the top corner -- it went right

3:43:113:43:19

in the top corner. Of the bar and

in. The Swiss are now on course for

3:43:193:43:26

a place in the semifinals. Russia

have to find their way back into

3:43:263:43:32

this game. They'll have to stop

taking penalties as well. Here is

3:43:323:43:42

Staenz.

3:43:423:43:47

Staenz. It should be cleared away

this one. It is now. Most touched

3:43:503:43:56

pass at centre-right. A big giveaway

in the zone. The Russians have

3:43:563:44:03

equalised!

3:44:033:44:08

equalised! They did just enough to

Fawcett passed -- get it passed.

3:44:103:44:25

Well punished. As it comes across it

looks like it's covered by

3:44:253:44:30

Schelling.

3:44:303:44:35

Schelling. Bullo doesn't cover her

player and that is well finished

3:44:373:44:45

player and that is well finished off

by Kulishova. It's 2-2.

3:44:463:44:55

A one player advantage here. Can the

Swiss get something more out of

3:44:553:45:02

this?

3:45:023:45:07

this? Olympic Athletes from Russia

swooping out of their own zone now.

3:45:083:45:11

More good

3:45:113:45:17

More good skating from Shokhina.

Back it goes towards the blue line

3:45:173:45:22

again. Shokhina has been very, very

good in this game. It's gone all the

3:45:223:45:28

way through!

3:45:283:45:36

The smile has gone. The Russians are

out of their seats. They are back in

3:45:383:45:48

the lead again.

3:45:483:45:53

the lead again. Did it get a touch

on the way through? I don't think it

3:45:533:45:57

did.

3:45:573:46:02

did. Ganeyeva registers the goal

that

3:46:023:46:07

that puts OAR back in front. Maybe

of small deflection off the

3:46:083:46:11

defender's stick.

3:46:113:46:21

Switzerland deep inside their own

zone.

3:46:223:46:33

Can Muller read her side back into

this? Big shot from her off the

3:46:353:46:39

post. Very nearly her eighth of the

tournament.

3:46:393:46:49

tournament. Focus in the eyes of

Stanz. In her own zone. What a play

3:46:493:46:59

inside of the net.

3:46:593:47:05

inside of the net. Over from

Shokina, who is having a wonderful

3:47:103:47:13

day. Third point for Shokina.

3:47:133:47:19

day. Third point for Shokina. And

the Swiss are stunned by this. But

3:47:193:47:22

their mistakes just keep getting

thrown right back in their faces,

3:47:223:47:28

and this was just a pass straight up

the middle. And in the end, that is

3:47:283:47:34

going to hurt an awful lot, at huge

mistake in this game.

3:47:343:47:42

mistake in this game. Two goal

advantage now with 12 minutes to go.

3:47:433:47:46

Back it goes again on the power

play. Surely a fifth goal would be

3:47:463:47:52

enough for the Olympic Athletes from

Russia, and they've got it! Goodness

3:47:523:47:55

me. Shokina!

3:47:553:48:03

me. Shokina! Amazing stuff from the

Olympic Athletes from Russia, and

3:48:053:48:07

what a performance from Shokina.

3:48:073:48:13

Stalder hammers this one had. And

this is the goal again, look at

3:48:223:48:29

those. Brilliant pass, and Shokina

converts. Maybe inspired by the

3:48:293:48:37

men's performance 24 hours ago, but

this has been something sensational.

3:48:373:48:42

The Swiss again on the power play,

taken off, and this will do it.

3:48:423:48:48

Empty net, shovelled in, the captain

puts the exclamation mark on this

3:48:483:49:01

performance. This has been stunning

for the Olympic Athletes from

3:49:013:49:05

Russia, and the Swiss will be

knocked out of the quarterfinals

3:49:053:49:08

phase, bronze medallists in Sochi,

but now the Russians will get the

3:49:083:49:12

chance to play for a medal here in

the 2018 games. Mistake on the blue

3:49:123:49:20

line, and that was all Sosina

needed, and she shovels it into the

3:49:203:49:25

net and Russia are through in a

sensational win in what is really a

3:49:253:49:34

super shock.

3:49:343:49:38

STUDIO: A huge shock in the

quarterfinals of the women's ice

3:49:383:49:42

hockey, the limbic athletes from

Rush rush through to face Canada in

3:49:423:49:45

the semifinals. -- the limpid

athletes from Russia. The other

3:49:453:49:52

semifinal was pretty comprehensive

as well, Finland winning 7-2, they

3:49:523:49:56

go through to the semifinals to face

the USA, so Canada against the

3:49:563:50:02

Olympic Athletes from Russia and the

USA against Finland in the ice

3:50:023:50:08

hockey semifinals.

3:50:083:50:08

USA against Finland in the ice

hockey semifinals. History made

3:50:083:50:11

today, Ester Ledecka, a snowboarder,

is to time reigning world champion

3:50:113:50:16

in the snowboarding parallel giant

slalom. Today she became the first

3:50:163:50:21

athlete to compete in both skiing

and snowboarding at the games, but

3:50:213:50:26

nobody could have foreseen how

historic it would be.

3:50:263:50:29

COMMENTATOR: The multitalented Ester

Ledecka is here to scheme next,

3:50:333:50:38

armed with both skiers and

snowboarders because she is

3:50:383:50:41

competing in the parallel giant

slalom event which will be held this

3:50:413:50:45

week. 23rd in the Alpine giant

slalom and it will be a first for

3:50:453:50:50

Ester Ledecka, she will be the first

ever athlete to compete in skiing

3:50:503:50:56

and snowboarding at the Olympic

Winter Games. That is two separate

3:50:563:51:02

training teams, one for

snowboarding, one forced being, and

3:51:023:51:06

she picks and chooses races

throughout the regular World Cup

3:51:063:51:09

season, one week she will be on

skis, the next on her snowboard.

3:51:093:51:15

Screaming through some of these

terms as she tries to keep on track.

3:51:153:51:19

That was a better landing for Ester

Ledecka, 32 metres of flight, nicely

3:51:193:51:24

done, soft on land, continued on her

way, 300th of the pace and now 18

3:51:243:51:30

hundredths in front. Can Ester

Ledecka mix things up here? Possibly

3:51:303:51:36

not after that landing but the speed

seem to remain intact. She is

3:51:363:51:40

absolutely throwing it down this

Olympics Super-G course in Chong

3:51:403:51:50

attention now -- in Jeong Sam. She

is in front by four hundredths of a

3:51:503:51:56

second. The snowboarding skier, the

skiing snowboarder, may well get in

3:51:563:52:02

among the medals. That would be an

incredible story. What a jump?

3:52:023:52:12

incredible story. What a jump? Ester

Ledecka leads the Olympic Super-G,

3:52:133:52:16

surely that is the gold medal, she

cannot believe it! It has happened.

3:52:163:52:27

Remarkable! Ester Ledecka is the

Olympic

3:52:303:52:36

Olympic Super-G champion. What a

fantastic story. STUDIO:

3:52:403:52:43

Olympic Super-G champion. What a

fantastic story. STUDIO: I can't

3:52:433:52:44

believe those pictures at the end.

That is incredible staff.

It was a

3:52:443:52:51

sensation. When she crossed the line

she was thinking they were going to

3:52:513:52:55

change the scoreboard but they

didn't, she won, and she skied

3:52:553:52:59

really well. Rumour has it that she

skied on Michaela Shifrin's skis.

To

3:52:593:53:04

put it into crept Micmac context,

how difficult is that to change the

3:53:043:53:12

disciplines in an Olympic Games and

to win gold?

We have seen it with

3:53:123:53:17

other sports, Rebecca Romero

switched from rowing to cycling and

3:53:173:53:19

one silver and gold but it is a four

year gap. What the Decca does is

3:53:193:53:25

well trained three weeks Alpine

skiing and then switch her coaches

3:53:253:53:28

-- what Ester Ledecka does, then

does three weeks block of

3:53:283:53:34

snowboarding. She has done that

through her Korea, she doesn't want

3:53:343:53:37

to give either up, she started

skiing at two and snowboarding at

3:53:373:53:42

five.

It is being described as the

biggest ever shopping Winter Olympic

3:53:423:53:46

history. How do you assess it, is it

that big?

It is a massive shock, she

3:53:463:53:52

has never placed on a World Cup

podium, but the big thing is if she

3:53:523:53:55

could win the PGS, that would be

making Olympic history.

We look

3:53:553:54:04

forward to that. She was a little

bit annoyed she had to the winner's

3:54:043:54:08

press conference because she was

missing practice, and she didn't

3:54:083:54:11

have her make up here and the whole

conference in her goggles.

May be to

3:54:113:54:17

cover up the tears!

It shows how

shocked she was that she was able to

3:54:173:54:22

do it.

Absolutely incredible. I

asked Lindsey Vonn afterwards what

3:54:223:54:26

it felt like to be beaten by a

snowboarder.

Did you come out

3:54:263:54:31

unscathed? What did you say?

She

says hats off, I find it hard enough

3:54:313:54:38

to do one discipline, and you have

Alpine skiers who specialise, but

3:54:383:54:47

you two different sports is

incredible. She says her

3:54:473:54:53

snowboarding helps her Alpine

skiing.

Was Lindsey Vonn

3:54:533:54:57

disappointed, she is one of the most

famous faces in skiing, and she has

3:54:573:55:02

a lot of hope in these games, having

missed Sochi, she has the downhill

3:55:023:55:06

to come, but what she disappointed

not to be in the medals?

Especially

3:55:063:55:10

yes

3:55:103:55:10

not to be in the medals?

Especially

yes as she could have done had she

3:55:103:55:14

not made the mistake. She didn't

have the best start number, left

3:55:143:55:18

with number one, no choice in that,

she couldn't pick anything out. She

3:55:183:55:22

will really be looking forward to

the downhill and it will fire her up

3:55:223:55:27

more.

History at the Alpine Centre

but the Snow Park as well, first

3:55:273:55:32

official British medal on skis, did

you watch Izzy Atkin today?

3:55:323:55:37

official British medal on skis, did

you watch Izzy Atkin today?

We were

3:55:373:55:38

trying to watch it while we watched

the Super-G common in and watching

3:55:383:55:42

it on the screens at the Jeongseon

Alpine Centre, and massive

3:55:423:55:47

congratulations need to go to the

coach compat Sharples, whom I might

3:55:473:55:53

have coached when I was racing and

he was a little kid!

Never good when

3:55:533:55:59

you have coached the coaching staff!

Massive congratulations to bat

3:55:593:56:06

Sharples for convincing Izzy Atkin's

parents she should skied for the UK

3:56:063:56:12

because on the US team... She is not

loud and brash and I think would

3:56:123:56:15

have been run over, but the British

team particularly Pat have nurtured

3:56:153:56:19

her, and she has a younger sister as

well.

Yes. Big stuff tomorrow?

For

3:56:193:56:28

Marcel Hirsch at this could be the

second gold of potentially three. He

3:56:283:56:33

has already won the combined and

could pick up the giant slalom and

3:56:333:56:37

shoot for the slalom. He has had

plenty of time to go off and train.

3:56:373:56:45

We look forward to that. Thank you

for joining us, we will be back

3:56:453:56:50

tomorrow but join Clare Balding on

BBC One forward could be a super

3:56:503:56:54

Saturday, Elise Christie back on the

ice and also don't forget Lizzy

3:56:543:56:58

Yarnold in the skeleton. It should
