To Pita Taufatofua, the hill in front of him was not an obstacle to be recklessly attacked. Now that it had reached its climax, the whole absurd idea of becoming a dual Summer and Winter Olympian inside two years had boiled down to a simple case of survival – left ski followed by right, up and then down, backwards and forwards, again and again until the pain was over.
Dom Parsons dismissed concerns over the legality of Britain’s controversial skeleton suits after putting himself into medal contention at the halfway stage of the Olympic final. A number of countries had complained that Team GB’s new hi-tech aerodynamic suits were illegally giving British sliders an advantage, causing the governing body to step in and rule that the suits had been cleared for competition.
Elise Christie says her heroes Jessica Ennis-Hill and Kelly Holmes have helped pick her up after her Olympic medal aspirations ended in yet another crash earlier this week. Christie broke down in tears on Tuesday when she fell in the 500m short-track speed skating final and could only finish fourth. Coming four years after she was disqualified in each of her three events at the Sochi 2014 Games, Christie admitted she was struggling to deal with her continuing Olympic hex.
Love this Winter Olympics picture.
26 minutes after the winner, Mexican cross country skier German Madrazo is welcomed by friends/rivals from Colombia, Tonga, Morocco and Portugal as he finishes.
They came 111 / 113 / 114 / 115 / 116 (out of 116) and are absolutely buzzing. https://t.co/n4wJri1Te0
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
