All the BBC hype around Elise Christie is way over the top.

They make out like falling is a massive never before seen shock when in reality it happens in every race!

Well done to Yarnold and Dees for gold and bronze. It's always great seeing GB get medals in the winter Olympics.

Claire Balding will spend 5 minutes talking about it before returning to talk about Christie!! The media love a poster girl or boy that they build up and over hype before they fail. Tom Daley is the same. Other athletes have achieved far more yet he gets all this attention and publicity during a summer Olympics.

Says a lot about the attraction of the Winter Olympics that this thread has taken eight days to creep into its third page while J Mutch has got 122 pages !!

Well done to Lizzie Yarnold for winning 2 medals today!

That is the power of pressure. Her run put so much pressure on the Austian that she made mistakes and put Deas in bronze. Well done to Deas for consistent runs too but what a slide by Yarnold.

Perhaps Mutch could give downhill skiing a try at least it would match his football career

Seconded.

Yarnold is a worthy champion - again

I think Christie deserved some hype as the World Champ, and all that happened in Sochi.

However, after what happened today and hearing that she was disqualified in all 3 events in Sochi (one on a tiny technicality), I find myself losing some sympathy for her. At least some of her problems have been self-inflicted.

I just had a fascinating conversation about Yarnold and the winter Olympics with her god mother. Key bits

Russians cheat cheat and cheat not only drugs but meddle with the sleds. Isbm reluctant to ban or give token ones.

Our funding is shite. We have, only one set of rails. It's like competing in F1 with one type of tyres.

We have one one place in the uk to practice and that uses skateboard wheels

Doubt she will compete next time as done what she set out to do

Used to compete in pentathlon so it's all about will to win.

elgin is going to go ballistic at you and Yarnold’s godmother

In unrelated and somewhat surprising news, a member of Russia’s curling team has tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. Curling? Seriously?

Well, yes. Meldonium is an anti-ischemia drug that regulates/slows heart rhythm and rate. Presumably you need a rock-solid delivery of the stone without any 'yips'. A bit similar to that snooker player who was banned for Bisoprolol, I believe, ages ago, again to slow heart beat and enhance control.

I remember Bill Werbeniuk having to stop playibg because they banned beta blockers and he used to take it to stop the shakes he got from, well let’s not sugarcoat it, his alcoholism.

But that was in the 80/. Do you mean him?

As distinct from the Canadian snooker player Bill Weurbeineck who would knock back 20 pints of lager.

Just started to get into watching this over the weekend. That slopestyle skiing is mental! Well done to the british woman who got the bronze in her event. Also especially enjoyed the woman snowboarder from the Czech republic winning the women's Super G skiiing event against all the odds. Forgotten how addictive it is watching curling. And Claire Balding is awful.

My memory may be playing tricks, but I thought there was an 80's player banned for a heart-regulating drug. I will google/try to remember.

Found it. Neal Foulds.

I got it wrong, because he wasn't actually banned, but it led to a ban on such drugs in 'precision sports'.

The bobsleigh was incredible. A dead heat for first place.
