The women’s bobsleigh will also take place at Pyeongchang 2018 today, while Elise Christie is facing a race against time to be ready for the women’s 1,000 short track speed skating after her traumatic crash at the weekend.

Figure skating: Ice Dance Free Dance
1am BBC/Eurosport, repeated in full at 8pm on BBC Red Button
Great Britain’s figure-skating duo Penny Coomes and Nicholas Buckland have an ace up their sleeves: Olympic ice dancing legends Torvill and Dean.
“I’ve worked with them, choreographing their short dance performance,” Christopher Dean reveals. “They’re a great team, really enthusiastic. They remind me of Jayne and I when we were younger and competing!”
That enthusiasm has been hard won: in 2016 Penny suffered a horrific injury in training, shattering her kneecap in eight places. Nick, meanwhile, underwent heart surgery in 2013 to correct an abnormal heartbeat. “The determination these two have is remarkable,” Dean says.
Coomes and Buckland’s performance is their own, but the influence of Torvill and Dean is clear: “The music they will be using is the same we used [at the Winter Olympics in Lillehammer] in 1994, ten years on from the Boléro — History of Love,” says Dean. “There are a couple of steps in there that are a bit of a throwback to 1994.”
“What’s unbelievable is that current skaters still talk about the Boléro,” says Jayne Torvill. “I think, ‘But you weren’t even born!’ It’s very humbling.”
Short track speed skating: women’s 1,000m heats
From 10am, BBC1 and Eurosport
Elise Christie suffered another heartbreaking setback at the weekend, crashing out and injuring herself in the 1,500m semi-final. She revealed she is hoping to recover in time for today’s event, her third and final shot at a medal in Pyeongchang 2018.
Freestyle skiing: women’s halfpipe
1.30am BBC1, Eurosport 1
Who said snowboarders have all the fun? Skiing has been transformed by the addition of freestyle events, with a new generation of skiers ditching the skinsuits and flipping out with the boarders. Ski halfpipe made its debut at Sochi 2014, and is back at Pyeongchang.
Skiers drop into a 22ft-high halfpipe to impress the judges with their aerial ability. Up to 100 points are awarded for height, turn, technique and difficulty. Maddie Bowman won gold in 2014, and again she’s the woman to beat.
11.50am BBC1, Eurosport 2
Jamaican Olympian Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian explains why representation in sports matters #ThinkingInColor
Posted by NowThis Her on Monday, February 12, 2018
“Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on up, it’s bobsled time!” Thirty years after Jamaica first entered a bobsleigh team in the Winter Olympics — inspiring
the 1993 movie Cool Runnings — a women’s team from the country has qualified for the first time.
Pilot Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian will lead the team, with sprinter Carrie Russell — who won gold in the 4x100m relay at the 2013 World Championships — making her Winter Olympics debut. The women’s event is full of firsts: Nigeria’s women are the first-ever African sled to compete.
