Figure skating (M): Britschgi can still hope
Britschgi starts well. But after a mistake by Lutz, which almost led to a fall, and slight problems in being in sync with the music at the end, it will be difficult for the 24-year-old Swiss. With a good 76.16 points, he ranks behind Majorov. Is that enough for the final, in which only 24 athletes are allowed to take part?
Figure skating (M): Swiss Britschgi in action
After a poor start by Canadian Roman Sadovsky, who can say goodbye to the Olympics, and a good performance by Swede Nikolaj Majorov, who scores a strong score to a heavy metal version of “Sound of Silence”, it is now Switzerland’s Lukas Britschgi required on the ice. Like all participants, he has to complete seven compulsory elements within his short program.
Figure Skating (M): Bad news for Zhou
Of the 30 qualified, only 29 athletes are at the start because the American Vincent Zhou tested positive for the corona virus.
Figure skating (M): Without German participation
The hunt for gold among the figure skating men takes place without a German participant. The top favorites in the short program include Japanese Yuzuru Hany and American Nathan Chen.
What’s to start?
We will start immediately with the first medal decisions. In ski freestyle, the women will be able to see spectacular jumps in the Big Air from 3:00 a.m. CET. In parallel, the figure skaters will soon be running in the men’s short program. At 3:40 a.m. CET, the women’s snowboarders get into action.
The program of the day
Of course, the female lugers are of particular interest to us. Natalie Geisenberger is on course for gold and could make her title hat-trick perfect after 2014 and 2018. Anna Berreiter, who finished second, also has a medal within reach. In addition, the individual competition over 20 kilometers is on the program for the biathlon men. And after yesterday’s gold coup by Denise Herrmann, the German ski hunters are of course hoping. We are also looking forward to the men’s Super G, which is scheduled to start at 4:00 a.m. CET. Medals are also awarded in mixed doubles in curling, men’s 1,500-meter speed skating, cross-country freestyle sprint for both sexes, and snowboard parallel giant slalom.
Welcome to another long Olympic day in Beijing! Ten sets of medals are at stake this Tuesday. We will be able to spend many hours with winter sports again.
Good morning and hello to the fourth day of competition in the Winter Olympics! Another packed day awaits, which for the first time will not start with curling. Figure skating is scheduled for 2:20 as the first competition of the day!
