Wüst left the 2018 Winter Olympics with one Gold medal and two Silver medals for speed skating.
Despite losing out on its traditional sources of gold, the country won its second-highest total of Winter Games gold medals in Pyeongchang, after winning 14 in its home-turf Vancouver games in 2010. In the final game against the US last week, standard regulation time had ended with a 2-2 tie. "I think it really helped us to play the top teams early on, Finland and Sweden".
There's no doubt the men's hockey team struggled without a roster full of professional players.
It left the team struggling to compete against worldwide squads it would have easily beaten at any other Olympics.
Russian Federation competed here under the Olympic flag and was referred to as Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation, but I'm not sure anybody bought into the tactic hatched by the International Olympic Committee following the revelation of the diabolical doping plot that took place at the 2014 Sochi Games.
"Before I started competition I was quite nervous because this is my first Olympic Games and I also wanted a good result to return the gratitude and thanks that I owe to the people who have supported me", he told reporters. Team USA's Ryan Donato did just that.
The last three times that the Team USA women's hockey team has reached the gold medal game in the Olympics, they've been felled by Canada.
Germany pulled off not one but two surprise upsets in PyeongChang.
Several of Trump's critics have questioned Ivanka's appearance at the Olympics, since she's not an elected official.
She was competing with a heavy heart for a grandfather who passed away in November. She's also a four-time X-Games gold medalist. Chloe wasn't just hungry for gold, she was actually hungry. He went out and won two golds: in the Alpine combined and the giant slalom. While that may be that case, she is on a few other outlets, as listed below. "I will treasure this medal forever". He won the bronze medal in the large and normal hill events as well as a gold for the team event, but something else caught people's attention.
Japan's women's ice hockey team, Smile Japan, did well here with a 2-3 record despite being eliminated in the preliminary round.
For the first time in this millennium, Canada didn't take gold in women's hockey. Reflected as a percentage of medals won - the number available has steadily grown with the addition of more action sports, among others, to the program - the US took 14.3 percent in 2010, 9.6 percent in 2014 and will be at 7.5 percent this year if it closes with 23.
Another Swiss team wipe-out came in the halfpipe from skier Joel Gisler, who hit the edge of the pipe and lost both of his skis after soaring high into his first trick - just like slipping as you step out the bath but a whole lot more painful.
After Team USA's "Miracurl on Ice" against Sweden in the men's gold-medal match yesterday, South Korea looks to pull off something similar on the women's side. Nathan Chen was invited to perform after his record-breaking skate in the men's free program, but he was forced to withdraw after coming down with the flu.
Russia's Alina Zagitova, just 15 years old, scored a combined 239.57 to capture gold.
It's always exciting to see new talent come up through the ranks, and this year America was introduced to a new crop that gives hope for the future. In fact, her first coach, had predicted that she would one day, become a world-class figure skater.
Mirai Nagasu made history when she became the first American woman to land a triple Axel at the Olympics.
When Meyers Taylor and her teammate, brakeman Lauren Gibbs, won silver Wednesday night in Pyeongchang, Taylor joined Steven Holcomb and Patrick Martin as one of the most decorated U.S. Olympic bobsledders-they each have won three medals. American Red Gerard was fifth, two weeks after capturing his country's first gold medal by winning the slopestyle event.
