    Giant slalom has been postponed due to high winds. Should've kept going I reckon.

    I like the speed skating, but it does often end up in a right mess at times. Great races can be spoiled by crashes. You have to have a certain mentality to compete without lanes and a free for all. Christie has her work cut out starting from 4th.

    edit Well that was a disappointment, not sure the Candian should have been in the final, but, ah well.

    Christie crashes out in the final.

    Though claims she was pushed.

    I hadn't realised Felix Loch fucked it up.

    First medal in the men's tea tray slipping. Only a bronze, but it gets us on the medal table. Will there be any more?

    Missed everything this week because of stupid old work. Think I'll do a delayed re-run from iPlayer next week.

    BBC 2 and BBC 4 do a round up of the days events every evening.

    I like to get into the event and understand a bit about it. You can't get that from the summary show. They are a bit like the tourist version, whereas I like the fill native version and all the trimmings that would never make it to the highlights. I was quite getting into curling when the games opened. I mean as a one-off. I won't be hitting the curling circuit, but it was interesting to watch how bizarre and committed the competitors are.

    One of the pundits in the studio was trying to big curling up saying how fit they had to be to be brushing frantically one minute then slowing their breathing down the next. A bit like snooker and darts then.

    Take your point about the highlights, I think they do go into it into more depth than showing just the winners, but not all of the competitors.
