Monday Olympics recap: USA back on the podium twice

Marit Bjørgen has equalled the record for the most medals won by a Winter Olympian after anchoring Norway to victory in the women’s cross-country skiing 4x5 kilometres relay at Pyeongchang 2018

Curling - Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics - Women's Round Robin - South Korea v Olympic Athletes from Russia - Gangneung Curling Center - Gangneung, South Korea - February 21, 2018 - Skip Kim Eun-jung of South Korea shouts.

It's impossible to go into this game without thinking of what happened four years ago in Sochi. She got the latest with a bronze in the women's team sprint in cross-country skiing. Cha on Monday made a surprise run at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics to capture silver in the men's 500 meter speed skating. However Ledecka won the gold medal for the Czech Republic by 0.01 second.

Meanwhile, Korea beat the USA 9-6 in the women's curling on Tuesday and secured a ticket to the semifinals regardless of the remaining two matches in the preliminary round.

"This team brings the absolute best out in me", Diggins said.

"I think it's hard to understand", she reflected in the immediate aftermath of her record-breaking medal. In the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games, the USA won 121 medals, coming in first as expected.

The goalie saw more unwanted action midway through the period when she took a stick to the side and crumpled over in the crease, unable to get up until there was a whistle. Germany advanced to face Canada in the semifinals and have a chance to win their first Olympic medal since 1976 in Innsbruck - when it was West Germany.

"It was a magical moment just as I anticipated my mother in crowd", Madison Hubbell said of wearing the costume.

S. Korean Mixed Doubles Curling Team Earns Second Win
A promising start for the American mixed doubles curling team of McFarland's Becca and Matt Hamilton has gone awry. They are considered top contenders at this event. "We're kind of paving the way for all our teams", she said.

Park added she and her husband bought the tickets at the last minute and left their house in Cheonan, about a three-hour drive to Gangneung, at 4 watch the team's morning game. "I'm really proud of this medal and I know he is too".

Norway's Marit Bjoergen cemented her place as the greatest ever Winter Olympian with a relay bronze medal on Wednesday, but with the 30km classic mass start still to come, she is not quite ready to ski off into the sunset just yet.

Winning a final Olympic downhill gold was always going to be an uphill climb for Vonn. Otherwise, they each reaffirmed that worldwide women's hockey still goes through them.

Monique Lamoureux-Morando tied it for Team USA with 6:13 to play in regulation. However, women's downhill is her forte.

Japan won the women's event in a stirring race after Norway took the men's title, beating the Dutch in the semifinals and South Korea in the final.

At the time, that was the second-best run of any skier in the event.
