Think we have established that IOC head Bach won gold in fencing in 1976. We’re told it every time he gets up #sochi14
The iron curtain has descended anew
Very classy segment on Russian culture. Acoustics are great in this stadium #Sochi2014
Athletes coming on now – much more shambolic always than opening ceremony. Canadians seem very happy with life. #Sochi2014
At closing ceremony. Eyes down for a festival of kitsch #Sochi2014
Russian Legkov wins 50k ski marathon and Russians look certain to top medal table. #sochi14
Good support again. need to cut out the coin throwing. It’s not the Trevi Fountain #cpfc
View from afar. Soft penalty to give away, great strike by Rooney. Palace played okay, lack of finish a worry. #COYP
SOCHI, Russia (Reuters) – The men’s slalom brings down the curtain on the Alpine skiing program at the Winter Olympics on Saturday, one of seven golds to be won on the penultimate day of the Games.
In the slalom, Austria’s Marcel Hirscher is the man to beat. He is seeking to complete a triple by adding the Olympics to his World Cup and world championship titles. However, he missed out on a medal in the Olympic giant slalom on Wednesday.
