A bit more for you on Japanese wonderkid Ayumu Hirano.
He's 15 and enjoys karaoke and reading manga comics.
Wonder if his medal collection will rival his comic collection one day?
Halfway in halfpipe:
Astonishing stuff in that first run! Yes, it's Japan's 15-year-old Ayumu Hirano leads the way.
White is down in 11th but can he pull it out the bag?
White fell twice on that opening run, catching himself on a ridge as he attempted a jump. Looked like it must have hurt.
He gets a 35 and falls to 11th but of course, he'll have another chance in the second run.
Shaun White's Olympic hopes have taken a huge blow! We've got a story on our hands!
SHAUN WHITE ALERT -- Here he comes....
WOW! What a run from 15-year-old Ayumu Hirano! He's 15! That is insane!
He's just pulled off an incredible routine. I couldn't even do up my shoelaces when I was 15...
He goes first with 90.75!!
U.S. boarder Danny Davis slips and falls on the pipe as his hopes of a medal suffer big time.
China's Zhang leads the way at the moment with 87.25.
Women's luge result:
1) Natalie Geisenberger (Ger)
2) Tatjana Huefner (Ger)
3) Erin Hamlin (USA)
What a win for Geisenberger – she has absolutely smashed it.
Bronze four years ago in Vancouver, she’s won this with room to spare to beat fellow German Huefner into second and Erin Hamlin of the U.S. into third.
Huefner knocks Hamlin off the top and secures a silver medal at the very worst!
Only her German teammate Natalie Geisenberger can deny her gold now.
Can Geisenberger, the woman who has dominated this competition, take the top prize?
Yes Nick, Canada did occupy first and second but not anymore! Erin Hamlin of the U.S. slides into first place with just two women left to go!
I'm sure we could try and arrange something for you Ivana...we're generous like that.
Canada's Kimberley McRae goes first with four ladies left to slide.....
Ah, look, it's the man himself! He's got a message for us!
The women's luge is entering the final stages with Swiss slider Martina Kocher currently topping the leaderboard.
All eyes will be on Germany's Natalie Geisenberger, the favorite, who will go last.
Are you ready?
If you missed it earlier, here's what Shaun White said ahead of tonight's halfpipe final.
"I'll be as aggressive as I can and I'm going to put down a whole brand new run. You heard the rumors, I have been working on some big tricks.
"I have got a lot of big tricks I want to do, especially combinations with a double cork 14 and some other stuff."
Sounds positively ominous and thrilling at the same time.
Ice hockey result:
Joy for Russia's women following a 2-1 win over Japan.
That makes it two wins out of two for the host nation. Good stuff.
So, who can stop White?
Maybe this guy, Iouri Podladtchikov of Switzerland. He came fourth in Vancouver while competing for Russia but received Swiss citizenship in 2007.
Podladtchikov slipped in his opening run but cruised through the semifinal stage and will be one to watch.
All White on the night?
Can Shaun White pick up his third consecutive gold medal in the men's halfpipe?
Just under 30 minutes to go until the action starts and there's no doubt who is grabbing all the attention.
It's a certain Mr White.
