Coomes And Buckland Just Miss Out
Written by RockSport on February 20, 2018
Great Britain’s Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland just missed out on a top-10 finish in the ice dance competition on day 11 of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
After qualifying in 10th, the pair came 11th after their free dance while Canada’s Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won gold with a world record of 206.07.
Also overnight, GB’s Rowan Cheshire came seventh in the women’s ski halfpipe final, when Canada won another gold through Cassie Sharpe.
And there was disappointment in the men’s halfpipe qualifiers as Britons Murray Buchan, Alexander Glavatsky-Yeadon and Peter Speight failed to qualify for the final.
There was better news for GB’s curlers, with both teams taking a step closer to the semi-finals. The men enjoyed a big win over Norway and the women defeated close rivals Japan.
