Only the top 12 made it through to the shoot-out for the medals meaning Muir’s countrywoman Katie Summerhayes just missed out by finishing in 13th place.

Muir was the pick of the British athletes in the early action on Monday, landing a double 1260 in her opening round, which she had struggled with in practice, to help cement her place in the final.

Speaking after qualifying, she said: “I was really happy to land my first jump, as I had crashed during practice a bit. I can clean up the grabs and there’s a few little things I could improve on so I just want to go ski my best in the final.”

Britain’s mixed doubles curling pair of Jen Dodds and Bruce Mouat won their final group game against the United States 8-4, a match they went into having already ensured their place in the semi-finals. They return to the ice at 12.05pm GMT to take on Norway for a place in the final. Italy face Sweden in the other semi-final.

There was a big shock in the women’s giant slalom when the big favourite and defending champion Mikaela Shiffrin crashed off the course and out of the competition after just the seventh gate of her opening run.

In the blue-riband event of the men’s alpine skiing, the downhill, which had previously been postponed from its weekend slot because of high winds, Switzerland’s Beat Feuz won gold ahead of Frenchman Johan Clarey – just 0.10seconds behind in second – with Austria’s Matthias Mayer completing the podium.

There was a fairytale gold medal in the men’s slopestyle competition for Canadian Max Parrot, a silver medallist four years ago who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the end of 2018 and had to undergo a six-month course of chemotherapy.

There was a bizarre moment in the women’s ice hockey when Parrot’s countrywomen had to take to the ice in masks after a delay in the Russian Olympic Committee getting their latest Covid results ahead of their group match.

Meanwhile, another Russian Olympic Committee athlete Kamila Valieva made history as the first woman to land a quadruple jump at a Winter Olympics. The 15-year-old helped spearhead ROC to gold ahead of the USA’s silver and Japan in the bronze-medal position.
