Team USA wins first medal at the 2022 Winter Olympics

There was no flex in Zoi Sadowski-Synott's landings today! Zoi is so powerful and had a couple of amazing snowboarding runs today. Zoi, from New Zealand, went into her final run having to beat Marino’s 87.68 in order to win the gold medal, and she managed to get it done! Zoi had an unbelievable show and claimed the gold medal with a score of 92.88.

Julia Marino won the first medal here in Beijing for Team USA with a silver medal. Marino put down some amazing runs here in Beijing today!! Marino has precision and moved herself from 9th place to 1st place with a score of 87.68 after her second run. Marino said after the run that Zoi Sadowski-Synott is an inspiration to her and she is so lucky to share the podium with her. 

Jamie Anderson Anderson was the reigning champion, but unfortunately she couldn’t pull it off again this year. Anderson went for her third gold, but unfortunately she fell a little short. On run number three, Anderson took a hard fall which ruined her chances. Anderson's best score was 80.78 on her second run, which kept her in the eighth place. She finished the day in 9th place.  

Anna Gasser took some serious air today and after her double 900 and managed to lock her heels to make a strong landing. Gasser came in at 75.33, but this wasn't enough to put her on the podium.

The snow was dry and aggressive today, but all of the women came to perform and had some amazing runs.

Ice hockey

US ice hockey team ease past ROC as tempers flare

A relentless United States crushed the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) 5-0 in a hard-hitting clash that lent a little geopolitical tension to the Beijing Olympics women's ice hockey tournament.

The victory kept the unbeaten US headed towards a gold medal showdown with North American rivals Canada, who earlier at the Wukesong Sports Centre produced another ruthless performance to pound third-ranked Finland 11-1.

The U.S and Russia contest had a Cold War vibe running in the background with relations between the countries strained over Ukraine, where the West has accused Russian president Vladimir Putin of preparing for a war.

On the ice, however, the US are the Olympic champions and women's hockey super power while the ROC have yet to reach the podium and are in Beijing looking for a medal and respect.

Team USA disqualified, China wins

Team USA thought they had speed-skated their way closer to the gold, but they were disqualified after a review of the semi-final race. Their disqualification from the short-track speed skating mixed team relay finals paved the way for host China to win its first medal at the 2022 Winter Games.

speed

Day 2 highlights: Speedskating

Sven Kramer holds the Olympic record, as well as the gold medal from Pyeongchang in the 5000 metres. He is aiming to defend his title and his record, going up against 2018 silver medalist Ted-Jan Bloemen and reigning world champion and world record holder Nils van der Poel.

snow

Day 2 highlights: Snowboarding

Anderson, a seven-time Winter X Games slopestyle gold medallist and a two-time world champion, is out for her OIympic three-peat. No snowboarder has ever won three golds in a row at the Games, with Shaun White the only snowboarder to have won three golds at all.

She will face competition from Canada's Laurie Blouin, another two-time world champion, while Tess Coady of Australia and New Zealand's Zoi Sadowski-Synnott must be considered as strong challengers.

2022

Day 2 highlights: Ski Jumping

The men's normal hill individual field is wide open, given that 2018 Olympic champion Andreas Wellinger failed to qualify this time, while silver medalist Johann Andre Forfang is not competing.

Robert Johansson took bronze last time and will be among the favourites, which will include reigning world champion Piotr Zyla (Poland) and current World Cup leader Karl Geiger (Germany).

luge

Day 2 highlights: Luge

The men's singles final takes place on Sunday, with reigning champion David Gleirscher, 2018 silver medallist Chris Mazdzer and bronze medalist Johannes Ludwig all pushing for gold.

Ludwig is the favourite, leading the 2021-22 Luge World Cup heading to Beijing, while 2010 and 2014 Olympic champion Felix Loch is also in the mix.

2022

Day 2 highlights: Freestyle Skiing

The women's moguls gold is up for grabs on Sunday, with reigning world and Olympic champion Perrine Laffont of France in line to defend her title.

Laffont will face stern opposition from Canada's Justine Dufour-Lapointe, who took silver in Pyeongchang, though Yuliya Galysheva – who took bronze in 2018 and finished second behind Laffont in the world championships last year – needs to go through a second qualification round.

2022

Day 2 highlights: Cross-Country Skiing

Norway claimed the first gold medal of this year's Games when Therese Johaug stormed to victory in the women's 7.5km x 7.5km skiathlon on Saturday, and her compatriot Johannes Hoesflot will hope to match that feat in the men's equivalent.

Hoesflot is a reigning world champion in three disciplines, and he won three golds in 2018, albeit he finished a disappointing 10th in the 30km skiathlon four years ago.

Norway dominated the podium in the event in 2018, but neither Simen Hegstad Krueger or Martin Johnsrud Sundby will be competing this time. Hans Christer Holund will be looking to improve on his bronze.

Beijing

Day 2 highlights: Alpine Skiing

The men's downhill event will be the first time a medal is up for grabs in the alpine ski programme in Beijing.

With the 2018 Olympic champion, Aksel Lund Svindal, having retired, and his compatriot Kjetil Jansrud missing through injury, then Matthias Mayer - who claimed gold in 2014 in Sochi - is among the favourites.
