It's the end of one career in Beijing, and potentially a defining moment in another. Snowboard legend Shaun White has made his final Olympic appearance in the half-pipe, and while the romantics among us wanted to see him slide off into the sunset with a gold medal, he fell trying a second 1440 of his final run and came down the slope to the applause of the crowd. White's compatriot Mikaela Shiffrin has finished her super-G run in one piece and without crashing. The American skier has already provided one of the defining images for disappointment at the Games, and the reaction to her failure again highlighted the pressure athletes are under to perform. Hong Kong's Sidney Chu made his Games debut in the short-track speedskating men's 500m event, where he was in the same heat as Olympic record holder and defending champion Wu Dajing from China. He put in a valiant effort, finishing third but missing out on the quarter-finals. Reporting by Josh Ball, Matt Eaton, Jess Ma, Cyril Ip, Jack Lau, Mia Castagnone, Nazvi Careem, and Nicolas Atkin.
