Pyeongchang 2018: final days

20 February 2018 6:49:36 pm AEDT

It’s been a busy week – medals, parties, Olympic debuts and swan songs, Australian history being made and a whole lot of amazing Aussie sportsmanship on display at PyeongChang 2018.

We have finally had a chance to take a breath and look back on it all.

Catch up

  • Making her own Olympic debut today, Jessica Rich also became the first Australian to compete in an Olympic Big Air competition. She just missed the finals, finishing 13th.

  • The Aussie bobsleigh boys were represented by the 2-man team of Lucas Mata and David Mari. The guys stepped up their game again last night beating their own best time on the Olympic track, recording a time of 49.87 seconds, walking away with Australia’s second best ever result in 22nd place.

  • Aussie speed skater Daniel Greig put down a strong skate in the men’s 500m race last night, posting an impressive time of 25.53 seconds - less than one second separating the top 26 skaters, but finishing Daniel up in 22nd spot.
  • Two-time Olympian Dominic Demschar finished 33rd in the men’s Giant Slalom on Day 9.

  • David Morris has finished 10th in the men's Aerials Skiing finals and put down a score of 111.95 for his back full – double full – full in the first final, missing a spot in Final 2 by one place in a field that produced some seriously high scoring jumps.

Coming up

  • Sochi 2014 Olympian Anton Grimus had his first day of training at Pheonix Park yesterday ahead of the Ski Cross events which kick off tomorrow.  It’s been a rocky season just gone for him, with two surgeries in 15 months, but Anton is confident and knows he can ski fast. Hear it from the man himself.

  • Tonight in the short track speed skating Deanna Lockett will line up for her second event, the 1000m (kicking off 9.03pm AEDT).
  • Andy Jung will be taking to the ice for his favourite - the 500m event starting at around 9.45pm AEDT. Both events are qualification races, so they will be looking for a first or second place finish to get them through to the quarterfinals on Thursday.
