Toboggan gold again in Winter Games - ice hockey team against Canada 1:5

The German lugers have crowned their outstanding record at the Olympic Winter Games in China, with a fourth gold in the fourth race. Natalie Geisenberger, Johannes Ludwig and the duo Tobias Wendl and Tobias Arlt won the team relay and won the German team’s sixth gold medal of these Games in Yanqing on Thursday. In addition, Geisenberger, Wendl and Arlt are now the first German Olympians to have won six gold medals at the Winter Games. The German Olympic team is currently at the top of the medal table.

Christopher Grother can expect a win in Skeleton this Friday. After the first two runs from four, Oberhof’s world champion already has a clear lead over his German teammate Axel Jungk.

Four years after winning a sensational silver medal at the Pyeongchang Games, the German ice hockey team began with a loss in Beijing. The record in the first preliminary round was 1:5 (0:3, 1:1, 0:1) against Olympic champions Canada. The other adversaries are initially host China and the United States.

Even without a medal, cross-country skier Katharina Hennig showed a strong showing with fifth place over ten kilometers in the classic technique at Zhangjiakou. German snowboard crossers, on the other hand, were disappointing and had to give up their medal hopes before the final race.

Ski artist Emma Weeks may plan to participate in the Winter Games after entering the Olympics on Tuesday, despite her positive coronavirus test. The 22-year-old freestyler told the German press agency on Thursday that two other tests at the Olympic Village had CT values ​​above 35, meaning he is listed as a so-called close contact.

Media reports about the Russian figure skating team continue to stir. The Russian FA on Thursday denied reports that super talent Kamila Valiyava had been banned from singles in Beijing. This was reported by the Russian newspaper “Sport Express”. 15-year-old Valieva led her team to a gold medal in Beijing, but the medals were not given without reason.

According to reports, the reason for this could be a possible positive doping test of a participant before the Winter Games. The International Olympic Committee spoke of speculation and said it was inappropriate to comment on the ongoing legal process.
