Day 9, Part 1 - 9.00am to 12.30pm

Hazel Irvine is in Sochi, venue for the 22nd Winter Olympic Games.

It is the turn of the men's alpine skiers to tackle the super-G course. Norwegian skiers have a good record in this event, and Aksel Lund Svindal will be hoping to retain the title he took from compatriot and three-time champion Kjetil Andre Aamodt in Vancouver.

Also taking place in the mountains outside of Sochi is the women's snowboard cross, one of the most exciting sports on the Winter Olympics programme. One of the memorable moments of the 2006 Games came when Lindsey Jacobellis crashed out after showboating on her way to what seemed a certain gold. The American has recently been battling serious injury but will be back in Sochi, still searching for that elusive gold - were she to achieve it, it would be one of the storylines of these Games. Britain's Zoe Gillings will also be competing at her third Games, where the Isle of Man snowboarder will be looking to land a first Olympic medal.

The curling competition continues apace, and there is live coverage of Great Britain's match with 2010 silver medallists Norway in the men's event.
