  1. Switzerland, Austria and Norway take the medals in the super-cool, brand-new mixed team in alpine skiing.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Each team is made up of two female and two male skiers, who ski 20-second-ish slalom races head-to-head against skiers from another team. In the event of a 2-2 tie, the combined times of the fastest man and fastest woman on each team are compared. This debut event at the Yongpyong Alpine Centre had a bracket of 16 teams.

  9. So NBC Sports Network is on with the last of its daily Olympic Ice programs this Madisonville Saturday evening/Pyeongchang Sunday morning. This, between host Liam McHugh and fellow commentator Tanith White, is where Scott Hamilton surfaced this Olympics after being usurped in the Tara Lipinski/Johnny Weir figs rise. They're here to preview tonight's exhibition gala and recap all of the competition over the last two weeks.

  10. There were only five medal events in this Olympics, and even that low number. The combination of the importance of the figs to the overally Olympics program along with the small number of medals awarded shows perfectly why medals totals across the entire games—or even a medal standings that sorts by golds and then silvers, like the one I’ve been posting here at the HP—is such a poor way to try to identify which country “won” the Olympics.

    Canada claimed only two gold medals and two bronze medals from this sport, and yet it felt like the Canadians were having a very, very strong Olympics this entire two weeks largely because of their dominant performance in the figs. And once all of the new Russian doping incidents shake out from these games, Canada might have one more gold because Kaetlyn Osmond placed third behind OARs in women’s singles. Japan won a gold and silver; Team USA had a couple of bronzes. No other team (except the OARs) were awarded multiple medals.

    The United States, Japan and Canada were also the top teams in figure skating at Sochi 2014. Here are the leaders in the all-time standings in the sport (not counting Russia or the Soviet Union):

    1. United States 15 gold, 16 silver and 20 bronze
    2. Austria 7, 9, 4
    3. Canada 6, 11, 12
    4. Great Britain 5, 3, 7
    5. Sweden 5, 3, 2

  11. Ah. That was a very satisfying program. Scott Hamilton is all class, and everyone around him just always seems to rise to his leadership.

  12. Now live women's curling on NBC Sports Network: Sweden vs. South Korea. I guess I'm rooting for the home team, but I like Sweden, too.

    You may have heard that Team USA won the gold medal in men's curling on Saturday in Pyeongchang. I had family stuff to attend to today and could not afford to stay up all night to watch it live, but our cat, River, woke me up at 3:30. I came out and turned on the TV, and they were showing John Shuster's miracle 5. I just couldn't believe it. Pretty much still can't.

    River might actually be a curling fan. You are not going to believe this, but she is seriously sitting in the living-room floor next to me right now, watching the women's final. I've never noticed River actually paying attention to what was on the TV until right now, so maybe she really did wake me up so early this morning to see what was up with the Shusters.

  13. Sweden wins the women's curling, and now we have the men's hockey final: Germany vs. the Olympic Athletes from Russia Which Has Kept Right On Cheating In Pyeongchang. NBC Sports Network just reported that the IOC decided it would not allow the OARs to fly the Russian flag in the closing ceremonies Sunday.

    Canada won the men's hockey bronze, and now we have Germany about to close out its best-ever performance in Olympic hockey, regardless of which way things go over the next few hours. The Germans won bronze at Lake Placid 1932; the West Germans won same at Innsbruck 1976. Germany didn't even make the Sochi 2014 men's hockey tournament.

    Here are the all-time leaders in Olympic hockey medals (again, not counting Russia or the Soviet Union):

    1. Canada 13 gold, 6 silver and 3 bronze
    2. United States 4, 11, 2
    3. Sweden 2, 4, 5
    T4. Czech Republic 1, 0, 1
    T4. Great Britain 1, 0, 1

  14. This is the next-to-last competition in the whole Pyeongchang 2018 Olympics! The women's mass-start cross-country skiing race gets rolling shortly after midnight in Madisonville, so I'm trying to rig my computer to see the stream before church tomorrow morning without seeing who won.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Germany is tied with OARs, 1-1, with just under 17 minutes to play in the third period on NBC Sports Network; South Korea takes the interesting mass-start speed skating event in Tom Hammond's tape-delayed sendoff on Channel 6 (and Belgium nabs a silver for its first medal of Pyeongchang 2018!).

  16. 6:39 to play ... an OAR scores and then does some cocky bow-and-arrow gesture, which is pretty cheeky for a team that is doping to come in 12th in bobsleigh ... BUT, 10 SECONDS LATER, GERMANY KNOTS THE SCORE AGAIN! ... 2-2!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. They hosted the Olympics. They had everybody fly all the way over there to Sochi, and then they cheated all their guests and hosed the whole works.

  18. AND GERMANY SCORES AGAIN! GERMANY SCORES!!!!

  19. 2:11 to play ... 3-2, Germany ... penalty, OARs ...

    ReplyDelete
  20. 55.5 seconds ... short-handed (but after pulling goalie to even up skaters on offensive end), OARs even: 3-3 ...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Then it went to overtime. And the there was another German penalty, and then my höme boys won the silver. Congratulations, Germany.

    Russia, please quit cheating. It spoils the fun for everyone.
