Here she comes!
Japan has pinned its hopes on 17-year-old Sara Takanashi...can she deliver?
Did you know?
In 2005, the president of the International Ski Federation (FIS) claimed there were 'medical' reasons to keep the women's ski jump out of the Olympics.
A group of women took their case to court and lost ahead of the 2010 Vancouver Games.
But the IOC relented in 2011 and said the sport would be included in Sochi.
Men have been competing in ski jumping since 1924.
Back in the game:
A quick pit stop and I'm back for the first ever women's ski jump final.
Japan's 17-year-old Sara Takanashi is the one to watch along with France's Coline Mattel and German Carina Vogt.
Maren Lundby of Norway is the current leader with 235.5 points.
I'm exhausted after that halfpipe final -- feel as if I did every run myself.
A quick drink and then we'll be back for the first ever women's ski jump final.
Catch your breath
Wow....I did not see that coming and I don't think many others did too.
Shaun White fails to medal while the man they call 'Ipod' takes gold.
And what about the 15-year-old Hirano taking silver?
That, my friends, is why halfpipe is simply awesome.
Men's halfpipe final
1) Iouri Podladtchikov (SUI)
2) Ayumu Hirano (JPN)
3) Taku Hiraoka (JPN)
HE'S MISSED OUT!
Can you believe it!!! Shaun White doesn't even get a medal! He finishes fourth!
Can Shaun White do it? Can he beat Iouri Podladtchikov of Switzerland?
He won in Turin in 2006, he won in Vancouver...and now?
Ayumu Hirano will be the coolest kid in the playground after that ride.
HE'S into second! He doesn't look happy but he is into silver medal position.
Here comes the 15-year-old wonderkid Ayumu Hirano.
He's currently third....
Iouri Podladtchikov of Switzerland still leads following his stunning routine.
Shaun White and current leader, Ayumu still to come.
This is going to be EPIC!
That routine from Iouri Podladtchikov was totally insane.
Big backside air to start...front-side five....frontside 1080...double corkscrew with 1440 degrees of rotation! Absolutely smashed it!
Iouri Podladtchikov goes first with 94.75!
That was sensational! The Swiss moves into the lead!
It is so tense out there. I'm sweating just watching this.
Seems a few of the boarders are suffering with nerves as we're yet to see a decent second run.
