Three years ago Lizzy Yarnold fell out of love with sport so quit and took a sabbatical. Today she became Britain's first double Winter Olympic champion and Laura Deas won bronze. (This is a great photo)
A historic moment as Izzy Atkin wins Britain's first ever Olympic skiing medal. Born and bred in America (with dual nationality), but "grown up on Marmite and Ribena". 
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.
The story of the Olympic cross country skiers fighting their own battle not to come last - featuring the topless Tongan, the 43-year-old Mexican, the Colombian snow plougher, the Brazilian, the Moroccan and the Lebanese.
