Day 10 (Monday 17th February) was a day of dense fog, which delayed some of the ski events. Here’s a round-up of the day’s Sochi 2014 action:
First some news on Rowan Cheshire, Team GB’s halfpipe skier, who was injured in a training accident 2 days ago. It has now been decided that she will not be competing in Thursday’s women’s halfpipe skiing event.
Team GB is through to the women’s curling semi-finals.
One of the most dramatic events at Sochi 2014, men’s Bobsleigh always draws the crowds. Russia won the 2 man bobsleigh (Alexander Zubkov and Alexey Voevoda). Switzerland took Silver, and USA won Bronze.
Team GB (Lamin Deen and John Baines) finished outside the top 20 in the penultimate round, so didn’t qualify for the final run.
By the end of Day 10 the Gold medal count leaves Germany in the lead with 8 Golds, and 5 Golds for each of Russia, Netherlands, Norway, USA, Switzerland, and Belarus. Britain is in 18th place in the Gold medal table, with 1 Gold.
