    The day Yuzuru Hanyu announced himself to the world

    At the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Yuzuru Hanyu wowed the spectators in the Iceberg Skating Palace – and the millions watching on TV – with his short programme routine, which saw him become the first figure skater in history to break the 100-point barrier in this event. He went on to win the Olympic title on 14 February and shot to stardom. This was just the beginning of a career that has made him one of the greatest figure skaters of all time.

    On 9 February 2014 in Sochi, Armin Zöggeler brought things full circle: six Games, six medals in luge!

    It’s certainly some record. Armin Zöggeler competed in luge at every Winter Games edition from 1994 to 2014: Lillehammer, Nagano, Salt Lake City, Turin, Vancouver and Sochi. And he took home a medal from each, including two golds. On 9 February 2014, at the Sanki Sliding Centre, the 40-year-old won bronze to make history with his sixth consecutive medal.

The women’s event is now on the programme of the Winter Games in Beijing in 2022, and unlike other bobsleigh events, the athletes use a bob that is identical to those of all their competitors, giving pride of place to the driving, with the value of the equipment having no bearing.
