Evgenia Medvedeva set a new world record on Sunday in the women's figure skating short programme, with a brilliant skate that helped the Olympic Athletes from Russia (OAR) into second place in the team competition behind Canada. Medvedeva, the reigning world champion who is competing in her first Olympics, was awarded 81.06 points for her performance, sparking cheers from Russian fans in the crowd.

American Redmond Gerard claimed the United States’ first gold medal of the Pyeongchang Winter Games on Sunday with his victory in the snowboarding slopestyle competition. Gerard scored a run of 87.16 to hold off Canadians Max Parrot and Mark McMorris, who finished second and third respectively.

Switzerland's Alina Muller almost single-handedly spoiled Korea's Olympic unity moment, scoring four goals to power the Swiss to an 8-0 win over Korea's unified women's ice hockey team. The game, played before South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's younger sister, was the first played by a Korean hockey team at the Olympics.
