DAY 16 HIGHLIGHTS

It took until the final hours of Beijing 2022 but Great Britain finally have a Winter Olympic gold medal. Eve Muirhead's outstanding women's rink followed the achievement of Rhona Martin's British team at Salt Lake City in 2002, dominating Japan in a final thrashing.
Finland took the final medal of Beijing 2022, winning the nation's first ever Winter Olympic ice hockey gold with a narrow felling of defending champions the ROC.

DAY 15 HIGHLIGHTS

And Belgium won its first Winter Olympics gold medal for 74 (!) years. The brilliant Bart Swings upgraded his speed skating men's mass start silver from four years ago, describing becoming Olympic champion as "a dream".

DAY 14 HIGHLIGHTS

Eve Muirhead led the women's curlers to the final and another guaranteed medal for Team GB, following in the footsteps of Bruce Mouat and the men on Thursday.

DAY 12 HIGHLIGHTS

Slovakia stunned the United States in the quarter-finals of the men's ice hockey after the Americans faltered in a penalty shootout. France’s Clement Noel put down a stunning second run to win slalom gold ahead of Johannes Strolz and world champion Sebastien Foss-Solevaag.

DAY 11 HIGHLIGHTS

An emotional Kamila Valieva finished first in the women's individual short program figure skating event after a week of controversy. Jarl Magnus Riiber took a wrong turn in the 10km cross-country skiing section of the men's Nordic combined to miss out on a medal.

DAY 10 HIGHLIGHTS

Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron sealed Olympic gold in the ice dance when obliterating the field with a world-record score. Kamila Valieva was cleared to take part in the women's individual figure skating event on Tuesday.

DAY 9 HIGHLIGHTS

Erin Jackson says she hopes that her gold medal success will inspire more people from ethnic minorities to succeed at future Winter Olympics. Marco Odermatt fulfilled his billing as favourite for giant slalom gold.

DAY 8 HIGHLIGHTS

Sixteen years on from a showboat that would seemingly haunt her for the rest of her career, Lindsey Jacobellis pulled off the ultimate flex in what could well have been her final jump at an Olympics.

DAY 7 HIGHLIGHTS

Shaun White bowed out from the halfpipe with the cruellest finish in sport after crashing on his final run as Ayumu Hirano took gold. Lara Gut-Behrami won super-G gold.

DAY 6 HIGHLIGHTS

Nathan Chen captured his first Olympic title after producing another fantastic display in the free skate to win men's singles gold.
Chloe Kim successfully defended her halfpipe title in style, dropping a 94.00 at the first attempt to finish comfortably clear.

HOW MANY SPORTS AND EVENTS IN SUMMER OF 2021?

There will be 109 events across 15 winter sports disciplines.

KEY ATHLETES AND EVENTS

All eyes will be on Mikaela Shiffrin as she bids to add to her Olympic titles from Sochi (slalom) and Pyeongchang (giant slalom). The American is expected to star in the women’s giant slalom (Feb 7), slalom (Feb 9), Super-G (Feb 11), downhill (Feb 15) and combined (Feb 19).
Shiffrin will face stiff competition from the likes of Petra Vlhova, Alice Robinson, Sofia Goggia and Marta Bassino, while snowboard-ski double-act Ester Ledecka will be eyeing a sensational repeat of her historic cross-code double in Pyeongchang – the snowboard parallel giant slalom (Feb 8) and Super-G.

In the men’s alpine skiing, Beat Feuz will be looking to add a gold medal to his silver and bronze from Pyeongchang. His best hopes will likely come in the downhill (Feb 6). Alexis Pinturault will be fancied in the giant slalom (Feb 13) and combined (Feb 10). Dave Ryding will harbour outside hopes of a medal in the slalom - on Feb 16 - after claiming a stunning win in the Kitzbuhel slalom just two weeks out from the Games.
Team GB may not be as competitive as they are in the summer Games, but one event they have a vice-like grip on is the skeleton. Britain have won a medal at all seven Olympics it has been a part of, with Lizzie Yarnold winning the women’s title at the last two editions. Yarnold has since retired, paving the way for Pyeongchang bronze medallist Laura Deas to become Team GB's headline act. Can she win the women’s title on Feb 12?
While Elise Christie has now retired from short-track speed skating after a tough couple of years saw her miss out on selection for Beijing, Team GB do have a couple of prominent medal hopes. Curlers Bruce Mouat and Jen Dodds will hope to help their European Championship winning rinks to further success, but the pair's best chance of gold might be in the mixed doubles, in which they enter Beijing 2022 as the reigning world champions. The National Aquatics Centre will be one of the busiest venues: there is curling competition on every day through the Games (Feb 2 to Feb 20), with the medal matches in the mixed doubles on Feb 8.
Another British athlete to watch is Charlotte Bankes, the women's snowboard cross world champion. Can Bankes, who represented France at the last two Winter Olympics, replicate that world-topping performance in Sweden at her first Olympics under the British flag on Feb 9?
Norway’s Tiril Eckhoff is set to be the headline act in the women’s biathlon events, having medalled in all six events at the 2021 world championships, including four golds. The biathlon events run from Feb 5 to Feb 19.
The world's leading women's ski jumper, Marita Kramer, will miss the Olympics after testing positive for Covid-19 before flying to Beijing.
Germany’s Natalie Geisenberger will bid for a third consecutive luge double in the women's singles (Feb 8) and team relay (Feb 10), Poland's ski jumping sensation Kamil Stoch will likely go for gold again in the men’snormal hill (Feb 6) and large hill (Feb 12), and Japan figure skating icon Yuzuru Hanyu is chasing a third straight men’s singles crown.
