Norway-Britain curling tiebreaker on now

Women's giant slalom- run 1 starts at 12:30am

Snowboard cross starts at 1:30am, no qualifying runs though. They'll go straight to racing.

It's nice having only 1 curling match going on. No excuse for communication issues.

Norway and the UK seem to be on their game this end.

Daedalus27: Norway and the UK seem to be on their game this end.


They have to be. It's win or go home now.

For the record, tomorrow (with prelim result):

5am ET: women's semis- Sweden v Switzerland (SWE 9-8), Canada v Great Britain (CAN 9-6)
10am ET: men's semis- Canada v China (CAN 9-8), Sweden v NOR/GBR (SWE 5-4 NOR, SWE 8-4 GBR)

Daedalus27: How is the snow?


As per usual, it knows nothing.
 
2014-02-18 12:25:11 AM
Reports are that there's a rain/snow mix forecast for later today over there. That's why the skiing is starting so early.

I shall now correct myself. I just saw a tweet saying the snow at the top of the giant slalom course is soft and it is drizzling at the venue. They could still delay it.

Good news - the rain seems to be washing most of the fog away.
 
2014-02-18 12:31:37 AM
All right good reasons to stay up for now

It's better than watching a Japanese obstacle course show.

MXC? Hole In The Wall? Ok, people wiping out on the Super G, perhaps

Skiing blindfolded? I say give her a time advantage for that.
 
2014-02-18 12:35:36 AM
This Norway skip has great hair.
 
2014-02-18 12:35:54 AM
DNF's may or may not be a thing, but the times will be awful.
 
2014-02-18 12:36:03 AM
I know they're trying to keep the Olympics trendy for the youngsters, but what's all this about knockout games?
 
2014-02-18 12:36:29 AM
Norway limits Britain to 1.  Tied at 1 after 2 ends.  Norway gets the hammer in the 3rd.
 
2014-02-18 12:37:25 AM
Apparently they're running racers with only a minute between each, so the coverage is going to cut about 15 seconds from each run.
 
2014-02-18 12:39:20 AM
Dat grandstand tho. Cripes. It's a Marlins game up there.
 
2014-02-18 12:40:25 AM
That American chick

you'd carve her turns
 
2014-02-18 12:40:39 AM
Ski conditions are looking decent up top, but after the 1st split mark; it gets crappy.

You can see the gray patches towards the bottom.
 
2014-02-18 12:42:23 AM
First DNF, but not a crash.
 
2014-02-18 12:43:07 AM
Gagnon tries to save herself from a DNF before going 'you know what, fark it'.
 
2014-02-18 12:43:21 AM
Them norwoojians are a chatty bunch whilst curling.

Gosling: Dat grandstand tho. Cripes. It's a Marlins game up there.


Yeah. I was in Torino and we had tickets for the ladies slalom. There was so much fog that you could only see about the last three gates,but the stands were rocking. It was a great time!

There is no one there today. It's sad.

Yeah and they're not small. Just poor.

I swore she missed a gate just before she finally pulled off. Might have just been the camera angle.
 
2014-02-18 12:46:08 AM
That doesn't look like much of a giant slalom course, steady incline, flat, steady incline and it doesn't even look fast.
 
2014-02-18 12:46:12 AM
First crash injury of the day.
 
2014-02-18 12:46:59 AM
It went from her starting to:  SHE'S DOWN
 
2014-02-18 12:47:01 AM
Brignone is hurt.
 
2014-02-18 12:47:04 AM
What is up with the video warping tonight? They start then they go to 25 seconds in. This Italian chick comes out of the gate and now shes a mess further down
 
2014-02-18 12:47:24 AM
A 2nd skier down. Italy slips on a turn and it sounds like she's injured her knee.
 
2014-02-18 12:47:25 AM
Jesus people! Go help her!
 
2014-02-18 12:47:27 AM
Doesn't look like it buckled, just slid out from under her.

They're running racers only a minute apart. So you see the start, then they cut to the live feed.
