South Korea wins historic sliding gold

Yun, who won the hosts' second gold of the Games, finished 1.63 seconds ahead of Nikita Tregubov, an Olympic Athlete from Russian Federation, while Briton Dom Parsons took bronze after five-time world champion and Olympic silver medallist Martins Dukurs of Latvia made mistakes in his final run.

The 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea take place from February 9 - Feb. 25. Julianne Seguin and Charlie Bilodeau were 12th with 67.52 points while Kirsten Moore-Towers and Michael Marinaro were 13th with 65.68.

South Korea, ranked eighth in the global rankings, defeated No. 1 Canada along with Switzerland and Britain.

Kevin Koe opened the first draw of the men's curling tournament by edging Italy in the 10th end 5-3.

Speaking about his impact against Basel , Guardiola said: "With the ball he was okay". To face into competitions every three or four days, we need all of them.

"I made a lot of effort to make it this far", Yun said. "That (Italy) is a good team. He's beaten Canadian teams before". They then added four points in the fifth end to take a 10-2 lead.

"It has been my dream to win the gold medal since I started off in skeleton", the South Korean said after triumphing by a record margin of 1.63 seconds. The alpine events were a boon for the Austrians, particularly in the men's super-G, where Matthias Meyer broke Norway's 16-year run of golds by taking first; he's the first Austrian (and first non-Norwegian) to win an Olympic super-G race since legendary skier Hermann Maier back in 1998.
