I’m covering the world figure skating championships in Turin where there is a real feeling of anti-climax given they come just a month after the Winter Olympics. Several champions have withdrawn.
Cowbells are clanging, horns are blaring - it's race day at Whistler Creekside at last... Yes, that's right, the weather has finally improved to the point where Alpine skiing is possible at these Games. We expect the men's downhill gold to be decided at around 1200 local time (1500 ET and 2000 GMT) and there's plenty more action where that came from here in The Couver. Join us here for the fun.
Costumes are a huge part of figure skating and sequins are almost de rigueur — many competitors here at the European championships in Tallinn this week look like they have rolled around in a glitter pot forgetting they were covered in glue.
