Friday was another busy day for Team GB in Pyeongchang, with British athletes competing in six events. The first medal of the Winter Olympics arrived for the squad and a couple of other competitors strengthened their positions in the hunt for some more. Here’s how everyone did.
Dom Parsons became Team GB’s first medallist at these games with a bronze in the men’s skeleton event. It’s the first medal in the Men’s Skeleton for 70 years. Jerry Rice also finished a superb 10th.
Lizzie Yarnold and Laura Deas took to the ice for their first two runs of the women’s skeleton. After run one, Yarnold held top spot after setting a new track record, with Deas 6th fastest. After run two, Deas climbed to fourth fastest, with Yarnold dropping to third.
Snowboard Cross: Women's
Zoe Gillings-Brier finished fourth in her snowboard cross quarter-final, just missing out on the semi-final. Italy’s Michela Moioli took the gold medal.
Great Britain took on Sweden in their fourth round-robin game. After a good start for Team GB, Sweden fought back and took the win 8-6.
Skiing: Women's Slalom
It was more agony for Alex Tilley in the slalom, as she did not finish in the event. Slightly better luck for Charlie Guest, as she finished 33rd in her Winter Olympics debut.
Skiing: Men's 15km cross-country
Andrew Musgrave, who was fancied as an outside chance for a medal in Pyeongchang, finished 28th in the 15km cross-country freestyle. Andrew Young also competed and earned a 57th place finish.
