Our England duo seem to be doing really well in the Mixed Curling and it would be good to see them in the semi-final at midday on BBC1.
The speed skating reminded me of Gerry – below – in 1950. No sign of head to toe lycra in those days. I am sure the skates are considerably different – variations on whether short track or ordinary speed skating were being discussed by one of the team coaches last night.
The short-track mixed relay was extraordinary for those unfamiliar with it – so many skaters on the rink (3 per team?), then one suddenly pops up and gives his teammate a shove in the back to set him/her off on the next few laps. Handing over batons would probably be a bit dangerous.
