Why do the Men's Curling team need to play a Play Off game against the Swiss? The Swiss, US and GB all finished on the same number of points. So it is supposed to go to the head to heads. The US beat us both so go through which is fair enough, but we beat the Swiss so why don't we automatically go through?

Korea did improve after they beat us and won four games in the end

Apart from Norway, 4 of our 5 wins was by one point.

Only one of Switzerland's wins was by one point. They also lost against Korea

No idea, and they didn't mention it in commentary either!

Cross country skiing is some sport.

Shocking, just shocking.
You mean John Jackson who competed for GB inBobsleigh in the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics, guiding the 4 man Bob to 5th place in 2014. I think he knows a thing or two about the sport.

Completely agree, the coverage here is shocking. I know there are occasional exceptions, but it often feels like they don't bother to show most other non-Aus competitors, then show the Aussie, then replay it to death while the next competitors are doing their thing. It's pathetic. It's the same with the summer Olympics too.

The BBC might have it's own issues, but at least they try and show most of the competition even when there may not be any Brits involved. I was in the UK last week, and I thought their coverage pisses all over Channel 7's.

Was watching the speed skating last night. They then cut to the ariel skiing which had finished 8 hours before. Commonwealth Games next for the xenophobic cringe to carry on.

It seems that the head to head system was used to decide the third place qualifier, which was correctly USA as you say.

But it was predetermined that there would be a playoff for 4th if two countries tied. This is done so that more countries have something to fight for longer when they’re playing the round robin system. Otherwise the tournament ends up with more ‘dead’ matches at the end with nothing to play for.

It does seem a bit unfair on us, but the rules were known in advance so we do only have ourselves to blame. Bizarrely had we been in a tie with Switzerland for third, then we’d have been third and them fourth. I think.

Little coverage outside of the pool and the beach volleyball then. Actually, not bad.....

Lots of guys on snowboard going jumps. All look the same. British guy was better than everyone except two people even though it all looked the same.
