Aussie lass chokes in the aerials final. She effortless nailed 2 x 85 point jumps in the first two rounds but fell in the final when 70 would have been enough to get her a medal.

A British medal at last, woth Dom Parsons in the skeleton - appeared to have blown it only for one of those ahead of him to mess up and give him a reprieve. The South Korean pretty much lapped the field though.

First individual male British medallist in any winter sport since short tracker Nicky Gooch in 1994. Unless we count Alain Baxter, which we definitely should (I think the promoted 4th placed skier gave him the medal back...)

We’ve seen everything from snowboarders born in the 21st century to 35-year-old Alpine legend Svindal winning gold... still no luck for Lindsey Jacobellis though, I guess she will have to go on for another four years!

I blame Trump and Skullywag of course.

I fear FB will come to a sticky end when R Mueller gets his teeth into Skully.

So, all over for another four years... though we have the Paralympic version coming up to give us our curling fix.

I was thinking, why no Winter Commonwealth Games? Is it just down to a lack of cold countries, meaning Canada would win everything?

Apparently there were Winter Commonwealths in the 60s, hosted by that well known Commonwealth nation of... Switzerland.

India tried to revive it a few years back, but presumably failed because it doesn’t snow much in Delhi. Although thinking about it, you could host ice rink sports at any “summer” games these days, it’s only snow sports that genuinely need a separate winter event.
