Norwegian triple gold, German double bobsleigh achievement – Tuesday

On Tuesday the eleventh of the Beijing Winter Olympics, medals were awarded in nine events. The Norwegians, who are still on top, also took home three gold medals, increasing their advantage over the Americans and Germans on the medal board. The latter was caught in two parts by men – a German athlete was standing on all three steps of the podium. In the men’s North complex, a Norwegian trio would have been successful, but the big opportunity Jarl Magnus Reaper was missed on the track…there was no Hungarian interest in any of the races on Tuesday.

In the singles Grand Prix of the Scandinavian chariots, there was a double Norwegian success: Jürgen Graback defeated Jens Loras Oftibro and Japan’s Vatabi Akito. By winning the ski jump, Jarl Magnus Reaper lost a huge chance on the piste and ended up only finishing eighth.

Norway finished with the men’s win in the women’s race in the women’s pursuit in the speed skating team race. The Japanese had the flag on the latter, but one of their rivals slipped in the last corner, so gold fell into the lap of North America – Ivani Blondin, wife of the excellent Hungarian speed skater Konrad Nagy, also became a member of the winning team.

Because of the expected cold, the 4×7.5 km relay race for men’s skaters was held earlier than originally planned. The Norwegians got their gold before the French and the Russians. In fact, this sequence was the paper model, where in the first 27 and a half kilometers everything was completely upside down.

In the jump skaters, the victories were Chinese for men and Switzerland for women. The success of the first is historic, as the ice skaters of the Asian country have never won an Olympic gold before.

On the women’s downhill, Swiss world champion Corinne Sauter took the win ahead of Italy’s Sofia Giugia and Nadia Delago, who are now back from injuries. However, Ester Ledecká of the Czech Republic, Mikaela Shiffrin of the US, and Lara Gut-Behrami of Switzerland, who won gold in the Super-G, finished only with gold in figure skating in Beijing.

Switzerland’s Mathilde Grimaud won the women’s ski robotic downhill race, ahead of China’s Quill-Ling Eileen and Kelly Seldaro of Estonia. Gremaud reached Silver just four years ago in Pyongyang, then his compatriot Sarah Hoflin is ahead of him.

For the first time in the men’s doubles, it was the first time that jockeys from the same country – German – entered Francesco Friedrich, and Thorsten Margis took a double start at the start, with Johannes Lochner leading from the first race and ahead of Florian Bauer, winning by more than half a second overall . Christoph Hafer and Matthias Sommer took third place.
