Hello everyone!!! Now that the laptop that was sent off for repair last month came back today, I will be able to continue blogging as usual, and as usual, I’ll go through a small summary of what has happened in today’s events. I apologise if the blog posts over the course of last month to now took longer to publish than expected, but now the laptop’s back, I’ll be able to get this blog back in the constant loop cycle.

Plus, I wanted to apologise also if I haven’t been able to respond to the comments all of you have sent in on previous blog posts, as the other week I was off sick recovering from a horrid throat infection, but now I feel much better and I’m 100% back on track to continue blogging. I also wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you bloggers and viewers for sending your comments in, I really appreciated your support.

To start, Kaitlyn Farrington of the USA won the women’s halfpipe event, Volosozha & Trankov won Gold for figure skating pairs, GB’s men’s curlers won victory by beating Switzerland 4-2, the GB women’s curlers lost 9-6 to Canada, the women’s downhill skiing title was shared, and Team GB‘s Chemmy Alcott finishes 19th. The results of todays events have been really good so far, so more medals are expected to be won during tomorrow’s events.

Below are the updated medal results from todays events, and are subject to change constantly over the course of this week into next week:
