Probably the closest we'll get to the podium at Sochi
Finally, there has been some Irish success at Sochi, in the most tenuous way possible.
Japanese figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu broke his own world record points tally in the men's figure skating short program, to the tune of Gary Moore's "Parisienne Walkways".
The song features vocals from Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott, who co-wrote the song with Moore. It reached number eight in the UK Singles Chart in 1979.
Hanyu, 19, scored 101.45 points, becoming the first skater to break the 100-point barrier. He is four points clear of his nearest rival, Patrick Chan of Canada.
His chance of taking gold has been increased further by the withdrawal of Russia's four-time Olympic medalist Evgeni Plushenko, who withdrew during the warm-up and retired from all competition shortly after.
Impressive, but we still feel that "Out in The Fields"-inspired routine, preferably done after a skinful of porter, would be the true test for any world number 1.
