Gherdëina is a valley in Northern Italy and a popular winter destination. Ice climbing up frozen waterfalls is just one of the many attractions it has to offer. Beginners welcome – if you’re not afraid of heights!
The first day of the final week in Pyeongchang sees Germany trailing Norway at the top of the medals table. Day 10 also featured a double-gold-medal win in the two-man bobsleigh, with Germany and Canada finishing even.
Day 8 saw gold for Poland, Britain, Slovakia, South Korea, Norway, Switzerland and Canada. Czech snowboarder Ester Ledecka caused a shock in the Super-G and Japan's Yuszuru Hanyu took figure skating honors.
Day 6 in Pyeongchang saw Germany pull off a record-setting performance in the figure-skating pairs, and the Germans also took gold in the luge relay. Canada got its gold-medal defense in ice hockey off on the right foot.
Drama in the ladies' speedskating 500m final, pain and joy in the luge and finally a gold medal for the man considered the world's best skiier. Day 4 in Pyeongchang was packed full of medals and madness.
