Hi, I'm Kim Hyesung.
Passion and competition are in the air on the third day of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
Let's take a look at some of the highlights.

The gold medal for team figure skating went to Canada on Monday.
Canadian figure skaters collaborated across a total of eight events and secured their first gold in this year's Winter Games.
The Olympic Athletes from Russia and the U.S. won silver and bronze.

But the weather in Pyeongcchang isn't helping the athletes competiting outdoors.
Due to high winds, women's alpine skiing has been postponed to Thursday.

And there's a picture that created a buzz today.
This was taken yesterday, and you can see two North Korean coaches standing in the back, cheering for South Korean athlete Kim Eun-ho in his cross-country skiathalon.

Now, the first gold medal for South Korea went to short-track speed skater Lim Hyo-jun on Saturday. In his debut event, the 21-year-old made an Olympic record of 10.4-8-5 seconds in the men's 15-hundred meter short track speed skating.


South Korea's Lee Seung-hoon came in fifth Sunday in the 5-thousand meter speed skating.
First place was taken by Dutch speed skating star ( ) Sven Kramer, who finished in six minutes and nine.7-6 seconds.

And yes, the medal tally.

Germany is top of the list with three gold medals, two from biathlon, and one from ski jumping.
The Netherlands is in second, boosted by its dominance in speed skating.
The United States ranks third.
The host country, South Korea is sixth with one gold medal.

And more games are coming up.
All eyes are on the united Korean women's ice hockey team, who will be playing against Sweden in about an hour from now, at 9:10 pm, Korea time.
It's their second match following the one on Saturday.
It'll be full of emotions and rare scenes, like the cheering squads from North Korea.
So don't miss it

Women's speed skating is slated for 9:30 pm tonight, with fans from South Korea hoping ( ) No Sun-young can seize a medal.
