Germans take home surprise gold medal in Olympic pairs after stunning display

Winter Olympics Tears All Round As Mikaela Shiffrin Strikes Gold And Germans Smash Record

Additionally, Ukrainian-born Savchenko, a bronze medallist at Vancouver 2010 and Sochi 2014 alongside Robin Szolkowy, has equalled the Olympic record of winning a medal in the event at three successive Games - held by six different people.

"I said to Bruno: 'We will write history today.' And then everything happened as I had imagined, and it came true", she says. They were separated from the gold medal by 0.43 points.

Team gold medallists Meagan Duhamel/Eric Radford of Canada took the bronze medal home with 230.15 points.

Hirscher wins gold in men's combined
Asked later whether his wait for a gold medal had enhanced the value of its arrival, Hirscher paused and said, "Not really". He's only raced in nine World Cup competitions this season, but finished third at a GS race in Germany late last month.

"I was quite nervous, this being my first Olympic Games", said Sui, already looking ahead to the next Winter Olympics.

The Germans' long program was not only completely mistake-free, it was gorgeously executed in stunning fashion, the only free skate to move the audience at the Gangneung Ice Arena to their feet.

"Attacking Viking" Svindal, coming to the end of a stellar career, clocked 1min 40.25sec down the 3km Jeongseon course to hand Norway its first Olympic downhill gold.The Germans Savchenko and Massot were in floods of tears after they won the pairs figure skating by a whisker ahead of China's Sui Wenjing and Han Cong, the strong favourites who missed out after Sui took a tumble. "But I hope that this will give us the motivation we need over the next four years to do well again at the Beijing 2022 Games". It's the first time the US has fielded only one Olympic pair team in decades, which meant that the Knierims skated four times in the past week - performing a short and long program in the team event, and a short and long program for the pairs event as well.

SC to pronounce Cauvery dispute verdict today
However, it allowed Tamil Nadu to draw additional 10 tmcft "groundwater" from total of 20 tmcft beneath Cauvery basin. Navneeth Krishnan, counsel for TN state said that TN government would study the judgement and take appropriate steps.

Despite an unsynchronized side-by-side double Axel and Ryom's hand touch-landing after a throw triple loop in the long program, the DPRK pair refreshed their personal best with 193.63 points before a loud, adoring DPRK female cheer squad, to finish the 13th out of 16 pairs.

"We heard what the Germans did before us".

Other golds will be won in PyeongChang, but we just don't see how they'll be able to make us feel like this.

"Unfortunately, too many mistakes today", Scimeca-Knierim said, according to U.S. Figure Skating. They competed four programs in the span of a week - rare for elite-level skaters - but come away from PyeongChang as Olympic bronze medalists in the team event. I was sick last night and this morning with a normal stomach bug.
