Cheers, Tom. What a top evening session we have ahead of us with three gold medals up for grabs between now and the close of play on this first Wednesday of these XXIV Olympic Winter Games.

It’s 7pm in the Beijing, which signals the start of the individual Gundersen. This is a brilliant event, combining ski-jumping and 10km of hard graft against the clock. Japan’s Ryota Yamamoto leads the way after his jumps with four German and Austrians within a minute, after distance is converted to seconds on the cross-country course. The silver medal winner from 2018, Akito Watabe, starts 76 seconds behind in 9th position – well within striking distance.

At the Capital Indoor Stadium, the bedlam of short-track speed skating returns with the men’s 1500m moving from the quarter-finals to the medal race over the next couple of hours. Defending champion Lim Hyo-jun is there again but under a different flag, moving from the South Korea team to the Chinese team. Dutchman Sjinkie Knegt, who was runner up in Pyeongchang and has since claimed the world record, is another we’ll have our eyes on.

Last night at the National Sliding Centre we saw a tremendous piece of Olympic history with Natalie Geisenberger victorious for the third Games in a row. In the doubles, which begins in just over an hour, her fellow Germans Tobias Wendl and Tobias Arlt have the chance to do the same and win this event three times on the trot. However, they’ll need to see off another German pair, Toni Eggert and Sascha Benecken, who won bronze four years ago – they come into the competition leading the World Cup rankings in 2021.

Through the night we’ll also drop in and out of the curling, where the men’s round robin begins; Norway’s crazy pants (believe me, this is a thing) is likely to dominate the attention there. Meanwhile, at the National Indoor Stadium, Pool B of the men’s Ice Hockey kicks off with the Czech Republic up against the Denmark.

And after all that, we’ll go to bed very satisfied little Olympic-obsessives, right? Join me for the fun – drop me a note or a tweet.
