The United States of America had won its first Olympic gold medal in women's ice hockey since the 1998 Winter Games in Nagano, Japan. They placed second in both the short and free dance, helping the US win bronze. Rick's take: With the likely exception of gold medal snowboarder Chloe Kim and skier Mikaela Shiffrin, both thought to have commercial staying power, most champions have only about a 12-week window to capitalize on their fame before the Olympic halo effect fades.
Shinsegae signed a sponsorship agreement with the Korea Curling Federation in 2012 as part of its efforts to expand the game's boundaries. NBC Olympics is the USA broadcast rights holder to all Summer and Winter Games through the year 2032. Lamoureux was able to free herself in the offensive zone and scored on Shannon Szabados, tying the game 2-2.
Due to the British conditions, much of the training for those sports takes place away from the United Kingdom, and Redgrave, a rowing gold medallist at five successive summer Olympics with a background in bobsleigh, thinks there should be more focus on disciplines that can be picked up and honed in Britain.
I remember the gold-medal women's hockey game between the USA and Canada coming on at the TGI newsroom. Alan Ashley, chief of sport performance for the USOC, mentioned that Americans finished fourth, fifth or sixth 35 times in these games.
Rooney's save ended many years of heartbreak for the Americans. Now people are blaming Canada's bronze medal finish on Gary Bettman, the National Hockey League owners and the International Olympic Committee because we didn't have National Hockey League players on the team this time around.
"To land here in Tampa with all the fans and people cheering at our gate, it was really special and we are so proud to be American and I could cry just talking, we're so thankful", Gigi Marvin of the U.S. Women's Hockey Team. On Saturday night, the team will drop the puck for the NHL Stadium Series game in Annapolis, Maryland featuring the Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals (on KARE 11).
After this week's elimination at the hands of the Czech Republic in a heart-wrenching shoot-out, that hope was squashed.
South Korea also set history wining gold for the first time in speed skating. And of course when we watch, we feel like what they're doing is incredible but then we hear the judge criticize them.
For the second time in four games the US beat Slovakia, this time quite handily. By the time she was a senior in high school, she was playing for the boys' team and had racked up a.910 save percentage.
Granato to depart UW hockey program for coaching position with Chicago BlackhawksOnly a year after the University of Wisconsin's men hockey program acquired Don Granato, the former associate head coach announced Read... After a fruitless overtime period lasting ten minutes, the game entered shoot-outs. Just because Team USA is leaving PyeongChang, that doesn't mean your favorite athletes are going into hiberation for the next four years. Known as "The Rejects", Team Shuster lost four of their nine round robin games, putting them on the verge of yet another elimination from the winter games.
