THERE are only a few days left of the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games, but still many reasons to park yourselves in front of Clare Balding (and the competitors themselves, I suppose).

Looking for something to watch this morning? Short track speed skating is centre stage.

From 11.18am-12.16pm (UK time), three events take place – the men’s 500m final, women’s 1,000m final and men’s 5,000m relay final.

None of these involve Elise Christie, so there’ll be no head-scratching when she’s mysteriously disqualified for pushing her opponents.

Therefore we can expect Korean and Dutch skaters to battle it out for the medals.

In curling, the men’s semi-finals take place from 11.05am today, though Great Britain are out, after losing their tiebreaker against Switzerland.

Women’s ski cross (1am) and men’s ice hockey semi-finals (7.40am and 12.10pm) are among the highlights on Friday morning, which also brings the men’s curling bronze medal match (6.35am).

That’s before the women’s semi-finals (11.05am), pitting Eve Muirhead’s GB girls against Sweden.

It’s likely to be close, with GB having won three on the bounce since losing narrowly to the Swedes in a match most memorable for an apparent equipment malfunction which hampered an already below-par British performance.

There are 10 medal events on Saturday (including the men’s final (6.35am) and women’s bronze medal match (11.05am) in the curling), and GB have a shot of adding to their tally here.

Snowboarder Billy Morgan is a medal contender in the Big Air finals (1am), a discipline which is making its debut at these games, though Canadian Mark McMorris is favourite.

Competitors slide down a 49-metre ramp that curls up at the end and fires them into the sky, allowing for some spectacular tricks.

And Ester Ledecka of the Czech Republic will become the first athlete in history to compete in both skiing and snowboarding at the Winter Olympics, as she goes in the parallel snowboarding event (3am).

Sunday kicks off at 12.05am with the women’s curling final (will we be staying up to watch GB compete?), and the final two runs in the men’s bobsleigh (12.30am-3.30am).

GB are outsiders compared to Germany and Canada, but four years ago their time was 0.11 seconds off the podium – and they’re in line for a retrospective bronze medal after the disqualification of two Russian sleds.

The men’s ice hockey final is on at 4am, before the final event of the Games – the women’s 30km mass-start cross-country skiing classic (6.15am) – and the closing ceremony (always a mind-boggler) at 11am.

NB For those wondering, sweeping a curling stone makes it go straighter and further, as the stones curl more as they slow down.

Ask me again in four years’ time.
