Day 6, Part 1 - 5.00am to 9.00am

Hazel Irvine presents coverage from the 2014 Winter Olympics on an important morning in Sochi for Team GB.

It is the start of the women's skeleton, the only event in which Great Britain won gold at the 2010 Games. Olympic champion Amy Williams is now retired, but Team GB have high hopes of another Olympic title - their team boasts current world champion and 2006 Olympic silver medallist Shelley Rudman, as well as Lizzy Yarnold, who has been one of the stars of the 2013-14 World Cup season.

Ski slopestyle is new to the Games, and Britain will be hoping that James Woods can write his name in the history books by becoming the inaugural Olympic champion. In 2013, the Sheffield skier became Britain's first freestyle skiing World Championship medallist for 20 years when he won a silver medal in Norway. Can he go one better at the Winter Olympics?

It is the latter stages of the women's 500m short track speedskating, and Britain's Elise Christie will be expecting to still be involved. While the Scot will not be one of the favourites for gold, such is the unpredictable and precarious nature of this fast and furious sport, anything can happen.

Both Britain's men's and women's curling teams are in action, and there is also live ice hockey.
