Lizzie Yarnold record breaker - first British athlete to win two medals at a Winter Olympics [:)]

I was glad I was watching when she broke it. Really has been a lot of good stuff to watch even though the US is underperforming. The coverage here is a about a flamboyant figure skater who likes Xanax and drinking. And the fact we have two Olympians who are out of the closet.

Yeah, we have taken quite a few unexpected medals this time around.

For me, it was Ester Ledecka and her gold medal win from nowhere that so far that has been one of the major highlights of these Olympics.

Noticed one of the ladies in Canada side that received a silver metal and then took it off, she doesn't look happy at all.

Canadian ladies gave it their all I can understand her disappointment. The overtime period and the shoot out were exciting.

Aye, the US medal count is currently below expectations / averages. However, we are strong in some of the remaining events that will close out the competition, so the end result may be better. Stay tuned.

I don't think it's a fair characterization to say that the coverage has been all salacious nonsense. I thought the coverage of the Super G, figure skating, ice dancing, slopestyle, bobsled and-most importantly of all-hockey has been very good. Last night's 'limited commercial interruption' coverage of women's hockey finals was superb television!

I have to agree. Watched it live on tv, I'm an early riser, and her reaction to her victory was epic. She couldn't believe she had just won, a cameraguy had to tell her. "you won' "No" Ledecka said with a heavy accent, she was totally baffled. Man I tell you it was epic.

You would think that in the most important moment of their career, the athlete would make sure the costume was fastened securely. Unless, of course, they want it to come apart. [;)]
