Bronze GB Jenny Jones 87.25

What an insane, brilliant event to watch! The last round was a bit of a train-wreck, with top riders falling etc, who otherwise should have medalled. Well done to USA for the gold & FIN for silver too, but Jenny Jones has won Team GB's first medal of the Sochi games and the first ever on snow! :?

One of our jumpers hurt himself during qualifying and is probably out of the games. There goes our most definite gold... >_>
And it goes to Poland. But silver isn't bad either...

Got a few days to recuperate before the team event, which is the one I was thinking of, the silver medalist from today is by far our best jumper at the moment (youngest too), but we do need all 4 for the team event.

Well, pretty bad story with Robert Kranjec and even worse with Severin Freund.

Freund's crash wasn't as bad, he only got banged up, but Kranjec's ski wouldn't snap off and ended up twisting his knee and potenitally tearing his ligaments.

Are the Netherlands going to win all the Speed Skating events? :p

Well done again to them for a clean-sweep in the Men's 500m, very impressive.
And to Canada again, this time in the Men's Moguls, a Gold & Silver and fourth place. Another great competition to watch.

Norway supreme champion in the medals table
Someone at the BBC must have seen that, they mentioned Norway's medals yesterday.

Another great snowboarding final, the mens today won by Iouri Podladtchikov of Switzerland. :thumbsup:

And Olympic history was made today, when Germany won the first ever Womens Skijumping, I just saw the highlights and it looked great. Norway also won a new event in Women's cross-country skiing, so grats to them too.

:cool:

Just discovered that I went to school with one of the Australian athletes and competed together on the same cycling team.

If they ever have a deluge games we'd win that hands down - all events from 'Heath and Safety mob does not help but gets in the way', to the 'who stopped the dredging causing this flood?' witch hunt event.

Our first hockey game. Starting off as was to be expected considering the opponents we were given (every other team has been a world champion and has at least a silver olympic medal under their belt and then there's us... a complete surprise to even have qualified for these games)... Down 0-1 in the 2nd minute.

0-2 in the 5th!

Holy crap, we actually won the 2nd period 2-1! I thought we were going to get decimated after that 1st goal, but we're playing ferociously in defence and the few breakthroughs we get are actually well thought out and executed! 2 goals from 8 shots! :D
