Team USA has never defeated Canada in the Olympics, and they are now guaranteed at least a silver medal.
The U.S. men's curling team advanced to Saturday's gold medal contest for the first time in Olympic history after a crucial 5-3 win over Canada, who was favored to win it all.
The first medal that the United States has won was by 17-year-old Red Gerard in the men's snowboarding slopestyle.
Great Britain were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Norway.
The 37-year-old Bjoergen was also all smiles after winning her fourth medal of the Pyeongchang Games. She earned a lot of attention for tweeting during the event while earning her place among Olympic athletes.
"I came into these Olympics knowing I could be a medal threat in multiple disciplines". This medal was the first in the Winter Olympics for the Hungarians since Andras Sallay took silver in ice dancing in Lake Placid in 1980. "It's unbelievable that we got a medal, and it's gold".
In skiing, Shiffrin was restricted to second place in the women's combined, meaning she ended the Games with one gold and one silver - a far cry from the potential five titles she had targetted.
At a news conference after the competition, the top two medalists - both teenagers representing Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation - said the indomitable Kostner had been an inspiration. "We're just really excited for them". "You have two options: you can either embrace it and realize they are all for you, or you can get nervous and worry about it".
Well first of all, you have the gold medal games for both men's and women's hockey.
Chloe Kim of the US won gold at the Women's snowboard halfpipe this year at the age of 17, after she landed her signature 1080s on her final race.
It's been a dominant, and historic, few days for American women.
She took gold in the women's 4×5-kilometer relay, silver in the 15-kilometer skiathlon and bronze in the 10-kilometer freestyle.
Although the Winter Olympics are filled primarily with athletes from white-dominated societies, the U.S Olympic team is a bit more diverse. If you're interested, you can catch him in the men's skiing halfpipe finals tonight. View Royal Twins Kieran and Kyle Brown, who were featured in the Gazette last week, will be competing in speed skating, along with Langford's Peyton Jo Stonehouse-Smith, and Sampson McNeill, Cohen Dawson, Anthony Budden and Zack Drought will be competing in curling.
Four years later, Shuster went back to the Olympics but played so badly that he had to bench himself.
