Default Day 14 (PM of February 17 - AM of February 18)

At 18:30 the Womenís Halfpipe Freestyle Skiing Final begins on CBC. Rachael Karker qualified in second place and Cassie Sharpe is defending the Gold Medal. Calgary resident Amy Fraser is also in the Final.

At 21:10 we have the first Semifinal in the Menís Hockey Tournament between Finland and Slovakia. This should be on TSN or TSN4 and maybe CBC as well.

At 23:05 the 1/8 races in the Menís Ski Cross starts (the seeding begins at 20:45). Calgarian Brady Leman is defending his Gold Medal from 2018. Kevin Drury is trying to improve on his fourth-place finish from PyeongChang. Reece Howden and Jared Schmidt are making their Olympic debuts. I think this will be on CBC once the hockey is finished but it wouldnít surprise me if this is shown in full. The Quarterfinals start at 23:35. The Semifinals should begin at 23:54. The Finals begin at 00:10.

Also at 23:05 the Bronze Medal matchup between Canada and the USA in Menís Curling begins, I think this will be in TSN or TSN4.

The Womenís 12.5km Mass Start Biathlon begins at 00:00.

At 01:30 the Menís 1000m Speed Skating begins, this should be on CBC. Antoine Gelinas-Beaulieu will be in the eighth pair. Canmoreís Connor Howe is in the eleventh pair. Laurent Dubreuil (2021 ISU World Singles Distances Bronze Medalist in this distance) will be in the fifteenth and final pair.

At 02:00 the Menís 15km Mass Start Biathlon begins. Jules Burnotte joins Calgarians Scott and Christian Gow as the Canadian competitors.

The Short Program of the Pairs Figure Skating starts at 03:30. Vanessa James and Eric Radford as well as Kirsten Moore-Towers and Michael Marinaro are the Canadian skaters. This should be on CBC.

At 05:00 Run 1 in the 2-Woman Bobsleigh starts on Sportsnet1. Christine de Bruin and Kristen Bujnowski will be the sixth team to slide. Melissa Lotholz and Sarah Villani will go twelfth. Cynthia Appiah and Dawn Richardson Wilson will go thirteenth. Run 2 begins at 06:30.

The Womenís Curling Semifinals start at 05:05, Japan vs Switzerland and Sweden vs Great Britain. These should be on one of the TSN channels.

At 06:10 the second Semifinal in Menís Hockey begins and I think it will be on CBC/Sportsnet.

There’s three runs in the final, but I’m not positive if it is the same as the big air where it is the top two

If three runs, they should count more than one of them IMO.

As does Kelly Sildaru of Estonia.

She won Bronze in Slopestyle

Cassie Sharpe (2nd) & Rachael Karker (3rd) are BOTH in podium position with one run to go in Women's Ski Slopestyle!

Cassie Sharpe is the reigning Olympic champion in the event and is coming off a torn ACL, MCL and fractured femur.

Amazing performance under the circumstances

Cassie Sharpe's getting robbed IMO. She had two 1080s, Gu didn't even have one.

I'm not one to point out male vs. female differences, but this is one event where the difference is laughable (even compared to rest of free/slope events with same competitors). The women can barely get out of halfpipe mid-way through the run. This event is painful to watch.

To be clear, I'm not blaming the judges. I just think a 1080 with a missed grab has to be harder than a clean 540, and ought to be worth more.

The judging in freestyle has been heavily criticized these Olympics.

The judges pretty much gave Gu an unbeatable score.

Amazing performance from the Canadians, ESPECIALLY Cassie Sharpe having overcome her MAJOR injuries last year.

Why did Karker only score 38? For her last run?
