Monday was a busy day for Team GB in Pyeongchang, with British athletes competing in six events. There was a particularly emotional return to the ice rink, success and failure on the snow and plenty of curling action. Here’s how everyone did.
Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland finished 10th with a score of 68.36 heading into the Free Dance tomorrow. Penny Coomes has had a remarkable return to skating after a horror knee injury left her unsure whether she’d even walk again, let alone skate again.
Freestyle Skiing Halfpipe: Women's
Team GB’s Rowan Cheshire qualified in 9th for the final of the women’s halfpipe. Her best run scored 74.00. Molly Summerhayes also competed for Great Britain but didn’t make the final 12, finishing 17th.
In what was almost a must-win game for Team GB’s men, Kyle Smith and his team performed excellently to take victory against Denmark. The Danish four took a 5-6 lead into the final end, but Great Britain, with the hammer, managed to get their two points and succeed 7-6.
Snowboarding Big Air: Women's
After Katie Ormerod was sent home because of injury, Aimee Fuller was Team GB’s only athlete in the new Big Air event. Unfortunately, she failed to land either of her runs and therefore missed out on qualification for Friday’s final.
Eve Muirhead and her team headed into their 7th round-robin game against Switzerland looking to avenge a strange hog line error that marred the loss to Sweden. They took the game to the 10th end and grabbed two to take the victory 8-7.
2-Man Bobsleigh: Men's
Pilot Brad Hall and his partner Joel Fearon took to the ice for their third and fourth runs in the bobsleigh. Sitting 7th after two runs, they dropped down the order slightly to eventually finish 12th overall. Remarkably, the gold medal was shared between Germany and Canada after a dead heat!
