  2. Brits to watch on day two

    Who will be making the headlines on Sunday? These are the British competitors to look out for.

    • 04:30-06:35 GMT: Aimee Fuller will begin her bid for snowboard slopestyle success in the qualification round at the Phoenix Snow Park.
    • 06:15-08:10: Cross country skier Andrew Musgrave is competing in his third Olympics, but first since becoming a World Cup medal-winner. The men's 15km + 15km skiathlon is likely to serve as a warm-up to his strongest 15km freestyle event on day seven. Callum Smith, who was 62nd in the event at Sochi 2014, will also race skiathlon.
    • 09:50-12:35: Adam 'AJ' Rosen, who currently lies in 23rd, will be looking to better the 16th place luge finishes he achieved at Turin 2006 and Vancouver 2010, and team-mate, 20-year-old Rupert Staudinger, will look to improve on his current placing of 35th after the first two rounds of the men's luge.
  3. Christie stands tall as team-mates fall

    British hope Elise Christie qualified for the short-track speed skating 500m quarter-finals by winning her heat.

    The Scot was tipped to win a medal at Sochi 2014 when she went in a trio of events, but failed in her attempts. She will try to make the semi-finals on Tuesday.

    Three of her short-track team-mates fell in their respective heats - Farrell Treacy (men's 1500m, Kathryn Thomson and Charlotte Gilmartin (both women's 500m).

    There were also British fallers in the men's snowboard slopestyle with Jamie Nicholls, Billy Morgan and Rowan Coultas suffering on the Olympic course.

  4. The gold medallists

    The first gold medal of the Games was won by Sweden's Charlotte Kalla who took the women's skiathlon title.

    That was followed by the first gold and medal for hosts South Korea, as Lim Hyo-jun took victory in the men's 1500m short-track speed skating.

    Elsewhere, Carlijn Achtereekte led a 1-2-3 for the Netherlands in the women's 3,000m speed skating, and Germany's Laura Dahlmeier won her first Olympic medal with success in the women's biathlon 7.5km sprint.

    There was another German success in the men's ski jumping normal hill final as Andreas Wellinger took the glory.

  5. Day one, done

    What a day it has been. Let's have a quick look at the main headlines.

  6. Silver and bronze for Norway

    Ski jumping: Men's normal hill individual final

    Some things to wrap up. Norway's Johann Andre Forfang takes the silver medal, with his Norwegian team-mate Robert Johansson winning bronze.

  7. 'Nobody could have predicted that'

    Ski jumping: Men's normal hill individual final

    Ollie Williams

    Commentator on BBC TV

    Your Olympic champion is Germany's Andreas Wellinger! Everyone thought his teammate Richard Freitag would be the gold medallist but he came back and back again with phenomenal jumps.

    It was a series of sensational jumps in the trickiest of conditions. Nobody could have predicted that podium. The defending Olympic champion and the world champion are off the podium!

  8. Gold Medal - Andreas Wellinger (Germany)

    Ski jumping: Men's normal hill individual final

    Stefan Hula's effort is not good enough to get him a medal and that means Germany's Andreas Wellinger is the gold medallist.

    It is all too much for the 22-year-old German to take as he is in tears. He is the champion. The German fans are bouncing, dancing and jumping. And not just to keep warm either. They are celebrating, and Wellinger can celebrate too.

    Andreas Wellinger wins gold for Germany.
  9. Post update

    Ski jumping: Men's normal hill individual final

    Wellinger is still in the gold medal position, with one person to come. Either the German or Poland's Stefan Hula will win this.

    Wellinger is crouching down, praying to the ski jumping gods.

  10. Two left

    Ski jumping: Men's normal hill individual final

    Germany's Andreas Wellinger is guaranteed a medal, but of what colour, Two to go.

    It's long and it looks like it might be golden! Beautifully held landing. Andreas Wellinger goes into first place!

  12. Wellinger moves into gold spot

    Ski jumping: Men's normal hill individual final

    The magical moustache of Robert Johansson is no longer leading. Germany's Andreas Wellinger moves into the lead, with four more jumpers to come. His coach loved it, Wellinger screams out in excitement and may be taking gold.

    Germany's Andreas Wellinger is the new leader.

    Alex Crouch: We need a Ski Jump in England.

  14. 'Aerodynamics of moustache paid off!'

    Commentator on BBC TV

    The aerodynamics of that moustache have paid off because what a jump that was! Robert Johansson's the only Norwegian team member here who hasn't got a World Cup win under his belt but he's taken the lead!

  15. Norway one-two in the ski jumping

    Ski jumping: Men's Normal Hill final

    A Norwegian led the ski jumping. But now there is a different Norwegian leading the way. Robert Johansson jumps above team-mate Daniel Andre-Tande.

    Robert Johansson and his mustache lead the way in the men's ski jumping.
  16. 'Puppy eyes' fail

    Ice hockey, women's preliminary round Switzerland 8-0 Korea

    Not even Matthew Pinsent's best "puppy eyes" get him an interview with any North Koreans in the Korea ice hockey team following their 8-0 loss to Switzerland.

  17. Tough going

    Ski jumping: Men's normal hill individual final

    This is hard going for these competitors. Gusts of wind are often delaying the jumpers, it is gone midnight, temperatures at about minus 12 and officials are trying to keep the competitors wrapped up in blankets before they get the green light to carry on.

    We still have 10 more competitors to jump in this final. We may be here a while.

  18. 'What's happening to my team?'

    Bobsleigh: Men's four-man event (Saturday, 24 February, 00:30 GMT)

    Andrew Matthews, part of the British bobsleigh squad, may well be in South Korea, but that doesn't mean he can't pay attention to the football scores.

    And it doesn't sound that he is too impressed with his Arsenal side losing 1-0 away at Tottenham in the North London derby.

    Judith Steele: The guy wrapping the coat around the jumpers takes his job very seriously. Good on him!

    Grant: You’ve got to feel for these athletes. It’s almost midnight & they’re throwing themselves off a ski jump in minus temperatures wearing next to nothing!

    Day one has now become day two. We are now past midnight in South Korea.

  20. 'What a jump'

    Ski Jumping: Men's Normal Hill final

    Ollie Williams

    Commentator on BBC TV

    From his grandmother's ladder to an incredible Olympic jump from Daniel Andre Tande. What a jump! Very, very solid.

    Tande, who was afraid of heights as a child, took up ski jumping as a way to overcome his fears. Apparently he was even terrified of climbing to the top his grandmother's ladder.
