Live ticker – (Olympic Winter Games 2022)



Vladyslav Heraskevych (UKR)

In view of the tense situation in his country, the Ukrainian sent a message of peace after the third round. In the ice channel, he loses valuable hundredths at the start and remains behind Schlintner despite better end sectors.


Alexander Schlintner (AUT)

The Austrian hopes to make up a few places on his Olympic debut. He could do that. He did his best run in the fourth attempt.


Nathan Crumpton (ASA)

One likes to talk about exotics at the Winter Olympics, and the 36-year-old, who was born in Kenya and is starting for American Samoa, is certainly one of them. He stays in front of Enzie despite a few rampers.


Blake Enzie (CAN)

The Canadian starts as 20th. He is three hundredths behind Nathan Crumpton, who will start afterwards, and the two will probably make up last place among themselves.


Five Minute Warning

So you have to be patient for five minutes. The field of participants is reduced to 20 skeletonis for the final round, this time the best start at the end.


First carbide for the skeleton men?

Team Germany has won three medals in the Olympic history of the sport, one silver and two bronze. However, up to now it has always been women who brought the hard metal home. A medal in the men’s division would be a premiere, gold would be a sensation.


Jungk’s participation was on the brink

A week ago, it was not even foreseeable that Jungk would be allowed to go into the ice channel at all. The two-time world champion tested positive for Corona at the airport and had to be isolated for a day. Two negative tests then allowed him to participate.


German double leadership

The 29-year-old Christopher Grotheer from Wernigerode has had an outstanding tournament so far, was able to convince in the third run with 1:00.16 and extend his lead. Another German, Axel Jungk, is in second place. For the 30-year-old Zschopauer it is about defending silver from the Russian Alexander Tretiakov. The gap between the two is currently 23 hundredths of a second. With Alexander Gassner from Winterberg, another German is there, but only has theoretical chances of a medal.


Olympic sport again since 2002

Between 1948 and 2002, the sport took an Olympic break. Since the Winter Games in Salt Lake, skeleton has been back on offer and is also held by women. From a German point of view, the medal table still looks poor, a German skeletoni has never won gold. Today could be the first time.


Gold in skeleton?

Have a nice afternoon and welcome to the fourth and final run of the Skeletonis! Christopher Grotheer and Axel Jungk currently occupy the first two places. It would have to be hell for Team Germany to go away empty-handed in this competition. The decision will be made at 2:50 p.m.
