Olympics Round-Up, Day 11: Top 10 in First Round ({{commentsTotal}})


Kristjan Ilves finished eighth in the jumping part of the Nordic combined event, but fell to 34th in the second part of the competition. Today's races should be very interesting for Estonian viewers as Jelena Glebova, considered the most in-form Estonian athlete, and Warren Cummings Smith, the nation's wild card, take to the slopes.
