Tough break for Daly (USA), unable to get on his sled properly at the start. Falls to 17th place, but he managed to make it to the end of the track safely.
GOLD - Tretiakov (RUS)
SILVER - Dukurs (LAT)
BRONZE - Antoine (USA)
Tretiakov is now crowd surfing. He just won the gold medal... he can do whatever he'd like!
Fairburn finishes in 7th and Neilsen finishes in 13th.
Thanks for joining us today for the Mens Skeleton competition. We'll be back on February 17 at 9:30am ET for the 3rd and 4th runs of the Mens Two-Man Bobsleigh competition.
Morning Canada! Coming to you live from Canada Olympic House in Sochi. Cloudy day today...as per the temporary postponing of Snowboard Cross this morning. But now we are prepped and ready to go for Men's Two-Man Bobsleigh!
Heats 3 and 4 are underway, and we have three Canadian duos to cheer for!
Bryan Barnett and Justin Kripps have already had their third run... they currently sit in 4th place.
Chris Spring and Jesse Lumsden up now!
They maintain they're spot...currently in 8th position.
Another Canadian team is on.. we have them back-to-back!
This is Lyndon Rush and Lascelles Brown on the track.
They too maintain their spot...currently sitting in 9th.
Canada does have a shot at a medal here with the Barnett/Kripps team. They are still sitting in 4th, behind third place by 0.09 seconds!!
They're behind first by 0.78 seconds! So it's a VERY close fight for the top!!
Just to re-cap, Canadians currently sitting in 4th, 8th and 9th spots...and it's a close race. Heat 4 begins at 8:05PM Sochi time (11:05AM EST). We'll be back then to cover all the action!
And we're back folks! Heat 4 is underway. Still some time till the Canadians are up though. Sliders go in reverse order for this final heat.
Italy currently leading the pack. 4 more sliders till Canada is up!
Definitely a fan favourite!
Switzerland on the track now...Canada up next!
This is the Rush/Brown team
