Marcel Hirscher (AUT) won his first gold at an Olympic Winter Games in the event of alpine combined, admitting he felt ‘unbelievable’ to finally claim an Olympic gold medal, but that he had to reach new heights to do so.

The Alpine ladies are yet to begin their programme falling victim to unprecendented winds in Yong Pyong resort with both the giant slalom and slalom postponed after the men’s downhill due to open the programme at Jeongseon last Sunday was similarly affected. The world is now awaiting the ‘double, double-header’ on Thursday and Friday which will feature the four re-scheduled races.

Manuel Osborne-Paradis (CAN) celebrated his birthday on 8th February and as per tradition, he ended up with a “cream cake” on his face. Kjetil Jansrud had the honor this year.

Dominik Paris (ITA), meanwhile, is almost at the end of his second Nutella jar.
