Day 3 in Pyeongchang 2018 begins with US skiing sensation Mikaela Shiffrin going for gold in the women’s Giant Slalom.
The curling mixed doubles is coming to a climax, and even though there aren’t any British teams in the mixed event there’s no harm in getting a little practice in early for what’s set to be your Winter Olympic addiction later on.
Elsewhere there’s skiing moguls, more cross country pain and the final of the women’s snowboarding slopestyle – sadly without Team GB star Katie Ormerod.
Check out the must-watch events according to our roster of BBC pundits, and for a full schedule of all the events broadcast live on the BBC and Eurosport see the listings below. Remember, all these broadcast times are subject to change. The Winter Olympics definitely comes with a weather warning…
2.40am, 4.45am BBC1, 6am BBC2, highlights 9pm BBC Red Button
12.40am Eurosport 1
BBC expert Chemmy Alcott says: Mikaela Shiffrin of the US dominates the women’s alpine events. The youngest Olympic slalom champion at 18, she’s now 22 and still improving. She could make history by winning a medal in every alpine event: she’s strong technically but also super fast. Alex Tilley is our star in the slaloms. She’s got plenty of Scottish grit.
Curling: Mixed Doubles
12.10am BBC1, repeated 11am BBC Red Button
BBC expert Steve Cram says: Strangely, curling makes great television: on the surface, it’s brilliantly simple. Whichever of the two teams gets their stones closest to the centre of the ring wins a point. You’ve got ten “ends” (rounds) and have to score more points than the opposition.
But don’t be fooled: each end is like a game of chess. The person who throws first sets up the strategy, and is thinking two or three moves ahead. That strategy can change mid-game depending what the other team is doing. Players may try to blast the opposition stones out of the way, or deftly squeeze past them. One slightly off shot can change everything.
Snowboarding: Women’s Slopestyle
1am BBC1, replay 6am BBC Red Button
Snowboarder Jenny Jones made history in the women’s slopestyle in 2014 by becoming
the first British athlete to win an Olympic medal on snow in 90 years. She was backing her successor in the British team Katie Ormerod to repeat the feat, but sadly she broke her ankle just before competition began in Pyeongchang.
In her place, watch out for GB rider Aimee Fuller. The favourite is Austria’s Anna Gasser, but Japan’s team features a number of prodigious teenagers including 16-year-old Reira Iwabuchi.
Both the BBC and Eurosport will have live coverage of the Games, but as host city Pyeongchang is nine hours ahead of the UK, some events will take place overnight. See RadioTimes.com listings for details of replays and highlights. There will also be a round-up show every evening on BBC and BBC4.
