Looks like the curling started on Wednesday. GB mixed doubles pair Jen Dodds and Bruce Mouat have won 3 and lost 1 so far in the round robin matches. I’ve taken 14-18 Feb as my last week of annual leave, so I’ll be able to watch afternoon and evening events as they happen.

Another win this morning for Dodds & Mouat, currently lying in 3rd spot after 5 matches, but the Swedes in second spot have already played 7 matches. Dodds & Mouat play table leaders Italy at 12:05 today.

I haven't seen any sport yet, but for my money Colombia won the Parade of Nations with their outfits (I only watched about 3/5 of that, tbh).

Only interested in Scotland's curlers, though they have to dress up in silly TEAMGEEBEE togs for this malarkey.

Allez les Bleus!

In the mixed biathlon relay

If you could get medals for falling over, Team GB speed skaters would have 3 today.

Enjoyed the mixed pairs speed skating relay though, a bit like the Madison on ice

Didn't realise elise Christie had retired.

Francesca Lollobrigida, the Italian speedskater, is the great-niece of Gina.

Didn't realise elise Christie had retired.

It's ok. We have others to follow in her path of tripping over competitors and crashing out.

She didn’t quite get the second one though. Amazing talent at age 15

30 points ahead of 2nd place. Playing on a different level.

#12 Apparently she's only 1.6m. She looks tall for a skater!

tasselhoff - 07 Feb 2022 19:28:36 (#17 of 170)

Isn't that a smidgeon taller than average?

Happy dad:

The women aren't allowed to do quads in the short programme. If they were, Valieva would win by an even greater margin than she does.

In the main event, her stablemates, Scherbakova and Trusova. will also do quads, and all three of them have been doing them for years, since they were juniors.

Valieva also has a stable triple axel, which she can do in both programmes, and Trusova a less reliable one.

But they will probably all be spent before they are out of their teens.

On the men's side, Hanyu is hoping to land the first ever clean quad axel in competition. He has attempted it before, but under-rotated and double-footed it.
