hello and thank you for joining me for the r.t. sport and then pick special all the action from the winter games in sochi plus the pick of the sport from around the world he is a taster. gold rush veteran alexanders of course steers russia to victory in the two man bobsled to win his maiden limping gold at the sand and the country's first since nine hundred eighty eight. last travel when i.
gather roos cruises to victory in the women's twelve point five kilometer. by hour long gold medal in starting. last fall good call yours earlier all eyes turned indoors to the curling with the men's fifty kilometer biathlon and snowboard cross held over until tuesday it was heavy fog in sochi. and the raising the bar surrogate booker looks on as french olympic champions then no need. to thank you one year old told the record in january. but first let's go to the winter games in sochi where our correspondent richard brown boldly tazz news of another russian gold medal after a foggy day during the olympics well hello there richard and there's only one place to start which is the bobsled and what an evening for russia. what an evening for
an example. they claim gold in the men's two man bobsled and what a performance it has been from the last couple of days they were dominant ryan from the start sort of a track record in their first run and also setting another track record in their third run and they were comfortable winners in the end as a finish just over half a second clear of the switzerland who are in second place has been a fantastic story for the driver examples of call food. in the nearly manno suppose for russia claiming a silver and bronze in vancouver last time outs. here going obviously one better claim a gold brick man as well alex a boy of all days forty one more color for personality as you probably meet in the olympics sees also a professional arm wrestler. he took a break actually from. do professional arm wrestling night she intends to take up that side career after the olympics finish also border he. is
a very good judo specialist as well and has been on a vegetarian diet for the last two years or so in order to try and prepare for these olympic games and obviously events diet has paid off by then getting gold well over twenty seconds russia will have a good chance one would think in the four man bob sleigh. it's going very well for russia with no other gold. unfortunately flown the weather has played havoc really over the last couple of days so we have brilliant sunshine for the first. ford really senti and up in a row as a whole which delayed the men's mass starts free times while the women were finally able to get underway but it really was a race to get the russian winners. could only finish twenty second and twenty fourth. claimed third gold medal at these games what was a nightmare race really for sidesaddle who fell midway through the race snapping
a pole which cost her valuable time while. she missed two shots on the shooting range and this really is turning out to be a disappointing lympics really for the biathletes just silver and a bronze so far was supposed to be one of russia's top sports the winter olympics and in terms of talking of russia's top sports in the winter olympics we couldn't go any further without talking about the ice hockey russia take on norway tomorrow big expectations both on our. obviously russia worth favors before this got underway and you can understand why with the lying servant xander of age. but things haven't really gone to plan so far the russians only managed one victory in regular time that was their first match against slovenia while the drops. of the united states are memorable matches should say shootouts and struggle really to be some i was on
a shootout in norway while they might have finished bought some of all the twelve teams here in seoul cheap of a sudden be a force to be reckoned with and russia shouldn't take them too lightly but also they'll be good to. run out for the russians one thing that really lacked here so far has been chemistry trying to get the lines to play well with each other and also to adapt head coach. defensive system. because an coach does like to concentrate on this defense and obviously it does take time to adapt and earlier i caught up with. two time olympic gold medalist hugo lobby on earth who said russia just need more fights on the ice. doesn't always so we're going to see so. i hope these guys. are going to be in the game for the next level and the focus here for france for this me is more goals and more enthusiasm mercury's about the russian character.
was a great result for russia's cross-country skiers on sundays they managed to claim a silver medal in the men's four by a ten kilometer relay all the warm conditions really didn't help them to march. slushy snow made it very difficult for them to ski and really affected. the course managing claimed a silver behind sweden who retained their gold medal from vancouver and became the first nation to do that since the soviet union way back in and nineteen or seventy two also over was joined for alexander trade treaty cause of in the skeleton as he picks up russians made and gold a matter bends also an unheralded really had come so close in olympic sport for picking up a bronze medal and then a silver the last war championships in summer it's but again just like the bobsled he was dominant really from start to finish and the results for trade to golf and i
actually caught up with him just. yesterday against right here i just won how delighted he was with the results and a great result obviously for russia in the skeleton they mentioned there some landmark achievements do you expect any more on day eleven. while the place looked really would be. skaters had to lympics really to remember and a lot of that goes down serving on remember in two thousand and six he was competing for south korea one for the gold for them in children but then had a dispute with their south korean federation and move to russia to compete two years ago and he really has brought so much to the russian team. boosting the levels of confidence of a young but talented side who haven't really had much show exposure and experience on the world stage and will actually go in his favorite events on tuesday the five hundred meters and given the form that he's been in so far in solid she one would expect perhaps try and science gold medal tally bird's rid of
a. aisles of the show so far have been russia's figure skaters with two gold medals and they certainly have had analytics remember and solid she. was a disappointing winter olympics for the russian team but few felt it more than the figure skaters russia and the soviet union's proud record of winning a gold medal in every game since nine hundred sixty four came to an end his face fell just short of clinching atop a podium finish in the men's or benz. four years on and things look like they're getting back to normal as russia had a ready claim to gold to me are it's their true and you've given. and teenager you need sky were inspired in the team events as we're. trying to call of who also took gold in the pairs but of course it's not just our trial lots of people are behind our success we really want to thank everyone who supported us we
want to share this joy with the whole contractors who are delighted with all the pressure and responsibility because it was really hard to. turn from hero to zero in the space of four days the thirty one year old looked back to his best in the team competition after qualifying for the games of a late behind closed doors trial following two years of injuries yet just before the men's events he pulled out citing a back problem so russia had no insurance as pollution had taken the only sports meaning the country misbah chance to continue their thirty year record of claiming a medal in men's figure skating but despite baseball or so sharon trunk all of the right behind their teammates. i don't think his point out of the tournament is something that's really that extraordinary it's professional sport in anything can happen it's all because it's pollution co and cause i think star the whole team
supports him not just the figure skaters guineas a real hero it's his forces and he has already won gold and the team is on to here as well one russian star is fading another is definitely on the rise you lift needs has just fifteen came first in the women's side of a team event to help russia win gold and she says only gold will do in the individual competition may be a big ask going up against south korean legend an undisputed favorite. nevertheless live needs says she's just. deleted to be in sanchia i don't feel like i'm already an olympic champion the individual event is coming up my feelings after the awards ceremony were great and it's like i'm still in the fog and don't fully realize what's happened we're sure it isn't just having a big impact on the ice but also off it the country has produced some of the best coaches who helped revolutionize the sports over the last few decades but favorites
in the only stance americans meryl davis and charlie white's and the reigning olympic champions of tessa virtue and scott more are of canada both courage by marina's joy of american jews are quick to rate the effects russian coaches have had in their career we're so lucky to be able to work with marina and we you know we every day are able to recognize her genius and. you know her choreography first and foremost is is so impressive for us to be able to perform but then training day in and day out getting us in the right mindset getting us physically ready you know and of course we have to think russia for you know bring her to us after a brief you know it seems russian figure skating is getting back to its best and with an alliance of teenagers leap need sky and russian national champion my team colton was the original choice in the men's of and the future is looking as bright as its glorious past. three tante. meanwhile in
