The best moments from figure skating at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics

24 February 2018

Speaking of Russian Federation, the nation's athletes finally have their first gold of PyeongChang, as 15-year-old Alina Zagitova edged teammate Evgenia Medvedeva for first place in the women's figure skating event.

Last but not least, the American team of Carlijn Schoutens, Heather Bergsma, Brittany Bowe and Mia Manganello took the bronze in speed skating's women's team pursuit, as Team USA defeated Canada by four-tenths of a second to claim the medal.

After two weeks of fantastic sporting action, we now look forward to a glamorous closing ceremony.

"It was super unexpected", said Schulting, who crossed the line with her mouth wide open in amazement.

Team USA also took home golds in the Men's and Ladies' Snowboard Slopestyle thanks to Redmond Gerard and Jamie Anderson, while Mikaela Shiffrin added Team USA's fifth gold and her career second on Thursday in the Ladies' Giant Slalom, and Chris Mazdzer's won the Men's Olympic Luge silver a first in US history. Perhaps he has become a favorite because he was the first American gold medalist in Pyeongchang, due to the unlikelihood of his victory, or because of his aloof, youthful charm. In the relay, Hungary won the gold medal, China and Canada took the silver and bronze medals. "But I am here and still fighting for medals".

Here is the medal standings as of the morning of Friday, Feb. 23 in America.
