Canada and Norway met in their first round robin match of the mixed doubles Curling. Canada's Kaitlyn Lawes and her team mate John Morris both won curling Gold in the Team event at the 2014 Sochi Games, and so were expected to challenge for a medal. But, their opponents Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten showed early on that they would be difficult to beat. Norway went into the final end with a one-point lead, but Canada had the hammer. Skaslien's last delivery saw two of their stones stop close to each other in the centre of the house, making it extremely difficult for their opponents to remove them. Lawes throw didn't make enough contact with her own stone to knock it into the button, which gave Norway two points and a surprise victory. It ended Canada 6, Norway 9.

Footage from the 1988 Seoul Olympics in which Ukrainian Olympic legend Sergey Bubka claims Gold and breaks the Olympic record in the process in the Pole Vault. In Seoul 1988, Bubka had his first opportunity to shine in the Olympic Games, having stayed out of Los Angeles four years earlier due to the Soviet Union boycott. Representing the USSR in Seoul, Sergey Bubka broke the Olympic record with a 5.90m mark which also gave him the Olympic gold medal. His fellow Soviets Rodion Gataullin and Grigoriy Yegorov join him on the podium. Bubka would still compete in the Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. He is currently a member of the International Olympic Committee. Find more about Sergey Bubka: http://www.olympic.org/sergey-bubka
Australia's Steven Bradbury achieves an unexpected gold medal in the short tack speed skating event, taking advantage of a mistake causing his fellow finalists to fall at the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
Coming into the five-man final, Steven Bradbury was the rank outsider and as the race progressed his chances looked slimmer with each passing lap. But as the leading quartet rounded the final bend, Lia Jiajun (CHN) tried an over-ambitious overtaking manoeuvre outside Apollo Ohno (USA), sending them both onto the ice and bringing down Mathieu Turcotte (CAN) and Ahn Hyun-soo (KOR) in the process. This left the way clear for a nonplussed Bradbury to cross the line unchallenged and claim the most unexpected of gold medals.
