10 a.m., Skeleton, men’s first and second round: Veteran Hiroatsu Takahashi and first-time Olympian Katsuyuki Miyajima will compete looking to earn podium finishes. The 33-year-old Takahashi finished ninth in a World Cup circuit competition in Germany in early January.
3:30 p.m., Cross country, women’s 10-km free: Masako Ishida, 37, finished 14th in the 15-km skiathlon on Saturday. The four-time Olympian was fifth in the 30-km classical at the 2010 Vancouver Games.

8 p.m., Biathlon, men’s 20-km final: Mikito Tachizaki finished fourth from last (84th) in Sunday’s 10-km sprint, and will try to redeem himself for the regrettable result. His wife, Fuyuko, also competes at the Winter Games as a biathlete.
