LGBTQ Olympians Won Medals At The 2018 Winter Olympics

24 February 2018, 06:56 | Virginia Santiago

2,920 athletes from 92 nations gathered in the northeastern city near the border with North Korea to compete in 102 events derived from fifteen winter sports. He won a gold medal in men's slopestyle in an incredible performance on February 11.

For the women's hockey team, it wasn't the result they were hoping for as they entered competition with the intention of winning their fifth-straight title. Wu Dajing claimed gold medal in a time of 0:39.584 and set new world record.

So I thought I'd keep it going-for a few extra minutes-by playing Winter Games, a sports game developed and released by Epyx (RIP) way back in 1985.

"We go to Alpine, cross-country, snowboard, freestyle and skating, I think that's the answer to why we're performing so well".

Vincent Zhou finishes in sixth place in his Olympic debut.

This year, the USA sent 243 athletes to the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang.

We can say that Thursday is ingloriously over for the National Team of Ukraine.

In the team competition, four men jump first and then ski 5 kilometers with staggered starts based on their jump score.

Hwang Dae-heon's silver and Lim Hyo-jun's bronze behind Wu turned out to be the highlights for South Korea, who were knocked out of contention in the men's 5,000m relay after a mid-race fall. The two have suffered from injuries as of late and have been taking painkillers to compete in the Winter Games in their home country. Kim Boutin was the second and Arianna Fontana from Italy was the third.

"I knew that if we won a medal today we would make history for Norway", said Leif Kristian Nestvold-Haugen, part of the Norway skiing team. But the medals they receive aren't actually worth that much.

Europa League Won't Distract Arsenal — Mkhitaryan
Manchester United legend Roy Keane has stuck the boot into Arsenal following a shambolic performance at home to Ostersunds . It returned to the continent's second-tier competition after a disappointing group phase in this season's Champions League.

The fourth-place narrative is a compassionate one, but it is a bit misleading. "We have 22,500 seats available for the closing ceremony, but about 17,900 seats have been sold for so far". He was also Japan's first men's Olympic gold medalist.

Chris Mazdzer was the first American to medal in men's luge with his silver in singles.

Then there are the novice and junior skaters that are pushing the boundaries of what's possible - phenoms such as Alysa Liu, the talented and precocious 12-year-old from the Bay Area who won the junior US title in San Jose, California, as the youngest skater in the field.

So stop complaining about close calls. The sport was left without a clear American face at a time when more extreme sports, such as snowboarding, were ballooning in popularity.

South Korean goaltender Shin So-jung added: "It is the first time to be cheered on by such a large crowd and I'm just so thankful". Once again, it's another medal for Canada.

Lastly, we have Brittany Bowe who is another speed skater.

Where Did All Those Russian Medals Go?

Other Minnesota players on Team USA include Hannah Brandt, Dani Cameranesi, Gigi Marvin, and Lee Stecklein.

However, North Korea surprisingly agreed to participate in this year's games, as well as help form a unified Korean women's hockey team.
