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)
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.
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."
American rookie Taylor Gold raises his arms aloft as he finishes his run - just before White and its a stylish and clean run. He's set the leading score of 81.50.
Two riders to go before Shaun White's first taste of the Sochi halfpipe.
Many of the top halfpipe riders have criticized the state of the pipe itself. Shaun White - yes him again - called the course "far from perfect." Organizers in Sochi confirmed they called in help from the alpine skiing team this morning to help improve conditions. There is, as we type, a slight delay to the start of the second phase of qualifying but we will be under way within minutes.
Morning! Gosh, I had this really strange dream last night. Skiers were riding rails down a mountainside, slick with sheet ice, hurling themselves off jumps into the air twisting and spinning. It was all a bit surreal... Anyway, it turns out I wasn't dreaming; it's happening right now as I watch day four of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Come join me for the snow spectacular.
CNN's weather folks have been busy gathering all the latest and here's their words of wisdom on what sort of conditions we can expect in Sochi tomorrow.
"Tuesday, Sochi is forecast to be warmer than the 2012 SUMMER Olympic host city London. If only London had mountains. But up above Sochi in the 'mountain cluster' the temperature will be colder and we could even see some snow showers by mid-week. But don't hold your breath, the above average warmth returns Thursday to the mountains."
