Yes there is. It's called Ski Cross.

Excellent. I like snowboard cross but Ski Cross seems to lead to far more catastrophe!!

Just watching pairs figure skating now. The French guy, Morgan Cipres, looked like he forgot his costume at home and just wore whatever he had on hand :lol:

That was such a nasty fall in real-time, let alone the multiple slow motion replays that followed! Feared the worst when you saw the impact her legs took and the way she was holding one of her knees.

Remind me not to big up any of our other athletes :lol:.

Is there anywhere on the BBC where you can see full previous events? I want to see some of the snowboarding ones but can't seem to find it anywhere.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b00qfb83

Can you trawl through there to find it?

I have a friend in common with Lizzy Yarnold on Facebook and my timeline is full of unbelievably irritating supportive messages from this middle aged woman tagging the poor woman publically, when presumably she doesn't want her personal profile obvious to the world as she uses a different surname.

That full events are not available in HD on YouTube within 24 hours of their happening is pretty unforgivable in this day and age. I wanted to watch Yuzuru Hanyu's performance, but I guess I never will now.

Highlight reels don't show anything worthwhile.

Awful call in the GB v SWE curling.
Baffling that they can't look at the replays to clearly see there was no foul.

Watched loads of this over the weekend - the snowboarding's so good. Except the women's big air snowboarding, which was a bit gooseberry fool. Just one trick, and 9/10 it seems to be a trick that would just be part of a bigger routine in the slopestyle event. Seems a bit unnecessary to have it as a standalone event.

Anna Gasser though. :datass:

This woman who keeps crashing out of the speed skating. :lol: Gotta ask questions about her technique or something, it can't all be down to bad luck.
