There are nine Team GB athletes in action at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games on Sunday in four different sports.

Ice Cube Curling Centre
GBR men v Norway 09.00-12.00 (local) 05.00-08.00 (UK)

After defeat against Canada today, the Team GB men’s rink of skip David Murdoch, Scott Andrews, Greg Drummond and Michael Goodfellow play Norway tomorrow in a key match in their bid to secure their semi-final spot.

Rosa Khutor Extreme Park
Seeding runs 11.00-12.10 (local) 07.00-08.10 (UK), quarter-finals to finals 13.15-14.05 (local) 09.15-10.05 (UK)

Zoe Gillings is Britain’s latest snowboarder to take to the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, where she’ll participate in the snowboard cross seeding run, with a top 12 finish the ideal result, before the knockout stages.

Regular World Cup medallist Gillings will become the second British snowboarder to have competed at three Olympics, following in the footsteps of Lesley McKenna. Gillings finished 15th in Turin and eighth in Vancouver.

Iceberg Skating Palace
Short dance 19.00-22.45 (local) 15.00-18.45 (UK)

European bronze medallists Penny Coomes and Nicholas Buckland are the next British figure skaters in action after Stacey Kemp and David King’s outing in the pairs.

Coomes and Buckland scored 52.93 for their short dance in the first-ever Olympic figure skating team event earlier in the Games and will be looking to improve that mark. They have been drawn in the final group to skate.

Sanki Sliding Centre
Runs One and Two 20.15-22.55 (local) 16.15-18.55 (UK)

After the success for Team GB in the skeleton, pilot Lamin Deen and brakeman John Baines get the nation up and running in bobsleigh.

Deen, who also drives the second string four-man sled, will team up with Baines, following the late withdrawal of Craig Pickering through injury.
