Darya Domracheva of Belarus is chuffed with her gold medal in the women's 10km pursuit, here's what she's been telling the media.
"I'm so grateful for the support I got here for this high-class race. The feeling was great, the support was cool, especially when I had enough time to dance with the flag at the finish."
Six men have successfully come through the halfpipe semifinals.
They will go into battle with favourite Shaun White in around 45 minutes time.
Switzerland’s Iouri Podladtchikov topped the semifinal leaderboard with U.S star Gregory Bretz in second.
12 men will compete in the final with White promising to bring out some big moves.
Big words from Russia's Olga Fatkulina following her performance in the 500m speed skating final.
"I felt like it was a war and the whole army was standing behind me. I caught the energy of the crowd and started concentrating on my steps."
The women's luge final has jut got underway over at Slanki and Germany will be hoping to win gold with Natalie Geisenberger the outstanding favorite.
But she'll have to watch our for her teammate Tatjana Huefner, who has been second fastest in the past two rounds.
The U.S is hoping Erin Hamelin can pull off a shock win -- she finished third in the last round.
Do you like facts?
We love facts and here are a few about the incredible double Olympic champion Lee Sang-Hwa, who retained her 500m speed skating title.
1) Third speed skater after Bonnie Blair (USA)and Catriona le May Doan (CAN) to win multiple Olympic gold medals in the ladies' 500m
2) Second youngest speed skater, after Lidia Skoblikova (RUS), to win a second Olympic gold medal in one specific event. Lee is 24 years and 351 days old.
3) Seventh gold medalist to successfully defend his or her title from Vancouver 2010, in all sports.
We know how you feel Eric....it's tough getting up and it's even tougher staying awake but if you stay with us, then we'll keep you going. Perhaps even throw in a cup of tea. Yeah, we're like that.
If you're just tucking into your breakfast like Brittany below, then you'll want to know that Norway has jumped to the top of the medals table.
Norway has won two gold medals today with victory in both the men's and women's cross-country sprint.
Ola Vigen Hattestad won the men's race while Maiken Caspersen Falla claimed the top prize in the womens' event.
Earlier today, Canada took gold and bronze in the women's slopestyle.
Dara Howell set an astonishing score of 94.20 points to see off Devin Logan of the U.S and compatriot Kim Lamarre.
It appears some of you are still getting to grips with the curling -- if you're watching, you might want to turn the volume down with British skip Eve Muirhead not shy of raising her voice.
It's like listening to Sharapova vs Azarenka out there on the ice!
Women's 10km pursuit result:
1) Darya Domracheva (BLR)
2) Tora Berger (Nor)
3) Teja Gregorin (Slo)
It's all going on today isn't it?
Belarus celebrates its first gold medal of the Sochi Games with Darya Domracheva taking gold.
Domracheva took bronze in the 15km in Vancouver four years ago.
Moment of truth:
Here come's Korea's Lee -- can she retain her Olympic crown in the 500m speed skating?
The third round of the women's luge has finished and once again it has been dominated by Germany's Natalie Geisenberger.
She tops the charts ahead of compatriot Tatjana Huefner and U.S. star Erin Hamlin.
The final round starts in around 30 minutes.
More Dutch delight?
Surely not, surely not again? After the Dutch clean sweep in the men's 500m yesterday, Netherlands star skater Margot Boer has just gone fastest to take the lead in the women's event.
Still waiting for Korea's defending champion Lee to skate....
Ah, excellent. We've some responses about which winter sports you used to play coming up too...
While the women's luge is in full flow, story reaching us here at CNN that our very own John Sinnott was something of a pioneer in the sport.
A young Sinnott once used a tea tray as his luge and made his way down the hill at rapid speed.
What a brave man although I doubt he was carrying tea at the time. He's more of a Rooibos man or perhaps green? He does like an Americano too.
As we said...pioneer.
That man, Eoghan Macguire is back and has told me that there's still a long way to go in the Curling competition.
That might be true but that doesn't mean we can't sit back and enjoy the slippery stone fest.
We've got four ties about to get underway in the women's section.
Korea vs Switzerland
USA vs Great Britain
China vs Russia
Denmark vs Japan
Speed skating latest:
It's the halfway stage at the women's 500m speed skating and favorite Lee Sang-Hwa is yet to skate. She'll be in the final race having topped the qualifying charts. Japan's Miyako Sumiyoshi currently leads but will she be there at the end?
Did you know?
Lee’s older brother, Lee Sang-Jun, was also a skater, but their mother could only afford to pay for the training costs of one of her children. So at age 13, Sang-Jun gave up skating so Sang-Hwa could take up the sport seriously.
For those of you who were with us earlier, I did promise you a story about our very own curling correspondent Eoghan Macguire, who was born in Glasgow -- a place well known for its love of curling.
That story will be coming up later -- but in the meantime, we want to hear from you on which winter sports you've tried your hand at?
Sarah Holt was a mean ice skater, Eoghan pulled on a pair of skis as did CNN's Gary Morley, while I made an attempt at speed skating.
Let us know which sports you've tried and any stories you have to go with them!
Use #CNNSochi or post on the comment section!
Thanks Sarah -- not sure anybody has ever called me 'cool' before.
Well, that's Sarah off for a well deserved rest and I'm here until 8pm UK time tonight bringing you all the latest starting with the women's 500m speed skating final.
Time to pass the Shaun White baton to our very cool kid - well, he is wearing a hoodie - James Masters. He will have five more medals to tell you about Tuesday including Shaun White O'Clock at 1730 (GMT). It's a date.
