PyeongChang Winter Olympics Day 5 Updated: 2018-02-14 18:02:12 KST

It's day five of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
I'm Kim Hye-sung with the latest on the games.
Let's kick things off with the highlghts so far.

In the women's ice hockey prelimary match that ended an hour ago, the Unified Korea team lost to Japan by a score of four-to-one.
Ice hockey was one of the headline grabbers for the olympics,hockey being the only event in which the two Koreas formed a joint team, making it a symbol of peace and unity.
It was a loss for the joint Korea team, but on the bright side they scored their first Olympic goal. -- that goal was put away by naturalized Korean national Randi Heesoo Griffin.
Neither Korea nor Japan will be moving on to the playoff round.

At 7 p.m was the women's one-thousand meter speed skating.
All eyes are on South Korea's Park Seung-hi, a former short track speed skater who won two gold medals at the Sochi Olympics.

Going back to earlier today.
Another gold for team USA in the halfpipe.
Yesterday 17-year-old Chloe Kim hogged the spotlight.
Now it's Shaun White's turn.A.K.A. the flying tomato.
He claimed gold in men's halfpipe with a score of 97.75, becoming the first man ever to win 3 snowboarding gold medals.
Japan and Australia took silver and bronze.

Speaking of making history.
Last night, South Korea's Kim Min-seok became the first Asian speed skater with a medal finish in the men's 15-hundred meter event.
Clocking in at one minute 44.93 seconds, less than one second behind Dutch gold medalist ( )Kjeld Nuis.
He's just 18, meaning we could be seeing more of Kim on the podium,next time.

Weather conditions in PyeongChang aren't really helping the skiiers.
Womens' slalom was scheduled for ten this morning, but was postponed to Friday due to strong winds.

Now, let's take a look at the medal tally so far.
Germany sits atop the standing.
The Netherlands trailing behind, with all four gold medals from speed skating.
The United States is number three at the moment.
Austria with two golds from luge and alpine skiing, ranks 8th.
The host country, South Korea, is at number 10 with one gold and one bronze.

There are more exciting events coming up tomorrow.
Pair skating finals is slated for 10:30 in the morning.
16 pairs will take to ice, including Team USA's husband and wife duo Alexa and Chris Knierim.
At 8 in the evning, men's 10-thousand meter speed skating and men's biathlon will take place.

That's all I have for now.
Until the next PyeongChang Winter Olympics updates,
I'll wrap things up with the latest results from today's events.
