Elsewhere in Sochi, people are making the most of the balmy conditions...
Back on the slopes of Sochi the Nordic Combined competition is under way. What is combined, you might wonder? Well, today men must fly through the air from the Normal Hill ski jump before a 10km cross country skiing race. In case you were wondering the NH, as it shall be known, is 95 meters high. Quite a plunge fellas.
Shani has been asking people to get behind him on Twitter to help generate what he's calling a "digital tailwind" to help spur him on to cross the line for gold later today. So, if you want to help, follow him on Twitter and send him those extra milliseconds that he needs. We'll have more on Shani later.
Set your watches for the men's 1,000m speed skating finals because we have another American star trying to achieve what Shaun White agonizingly wasn't able to manage yesterday. Step forward Shani Davis, who can today become the first American male to win three successive individual Winter Olympic golds.
Weather fans. I have something for you too...
C'est tout - two women take over Lindsey Vonn's mantle as the Olympic downhill champion. Switzerland's Dominique Gisin and Slovenia's Tina Maze share gold after finishing the course in the exact same time while Switzerland's Lara Gut take the bronze medal. Julia Mancuso, flying the flag for the USA team in the absence of Vonn, finishes eighth with Super Combined champion Maria Hoefl-Riesch 13th. It's also a golden moment for bubbly British skier Chemmy Alcott, who has battled back from breaking her leg three times, as she finishes 19th.
There's more than just the downhill happening today don't you know...
Wakey-wakey Winter Olympic watchers! We have work to do. The fastest women on skis are gliding down the snow in Sochi right NOW. These are the snow queens of alpine skiing, this is CNN World Sport's live blog, morning everyone.
Eoghan is Glasgow born and bred and has a quite wonderful Scottish accent to boot.
In his younger days he would regale people with tales of how he worked at a ski club and enjoyed the high life.
Thing is, and he admitted this to us rather sheepishly, is that Eoghan actually worked at a ski club. In Glasgow. And not just any ski club…a dry ski slope club.
And when he says he ‘worked there’ he actually means worked in the bar.
It gets better. The bar wasn’t actually a bar. It was a portakabin and didn’t actually have any pumps.
In essence, he poured the beers into glasses.
Now, that my friends is an art. Pouring a beer into a glass can be full of dangers but he’s got a talent.
Anyway, on that note and a corker of a story, I bid you adieu.
Rest up for tomorrow and join Sarah Holt at 8am UK time for another day of action from Sochi.
Well, just one last thing to do before I wrap up following a pulsating day of action in Sochi.
I did promise you a story about our own Eoghan Macguire and his winter sport career......
Well, what a day that was!
Here’s a quick recap of the winners and losers.
Shaun White, the king of the halfpipe, was well and truly dethroned and didn’t even get a medal.
Switzerland’s Iouri Podlatchikov, the man known as ‘iPod’ took gold following a sensational routine in which he brought out his famous ‘YOLO’ move.
In the first ever women’s ski jump to be held at the Olympics, Germany’s Carina Vogt took gold, while her compatriot Natalie Geisenberger won the women’s luge.
Norway enjoyed a successful day with Ola Vigen Hattestad winning the men’s cross-country sprint and Maiken Caspersen Falla taking gold in the women’s event.
On the ice, Korea’s Lee Sang-Hwa cruised to victory to retain her 500m speed skating crown in a new Olympic record time.
Darya Domracheva of Belarus triumphed in the women’s biathlon to win her country’s first gold of the Games.
Dara Howell of Canada produced an stonking score of 94.20 points on her first run to take gold in the women’s slopestyle.
