Bjoergen, American women make history at Olympics

25 February 2018

Norway won bronze, nearly 3 seconds back.

She took gold in the women's 4×5-kilometer relay, silver in the 15-kilometer skiathlon and bronze in the 10-kilometer freestyle. Her bronze in the women's cross-country team sprint took her medals total to 14 (seven of them gold), surpassing the previous benchmark set by her compatriot, biathlete Ole Einar Bjoerndalen.

"I've come this far because my two teammates have supported me from behind", said Chung, 16, following the race.

"I think that the competition comes second", one of the athlete's nephews Corbin Arbizzani said. He added that the South Korean players could learn from the Norwegians and improve their individual capabilities.

Thursday brings more exciting Olympic events after a great day for Team USA.

We are not collating these names by any phone call or text message. "But we can say that not all have returned". According to the Police Commissioner, there ere no abducted girls on the day of the attack at the school.

American women have clearly led their country's gold rush in Pyeongchang. The United States, though suffering defeats in some areas and lagging behind in the top competition, has seen its share of incredible victories.

Teen figure skaters Alina Zagitova and Evgenia Medvedeva were in first and second place, respectively, in the women's short program after earning the highest scores ever.

Nestvold-Haugen, though, believed the seeds of the success were sewn when Norway last hosted the Winter Olympics at Lillehammer in 1994. Leading up to the ceremony, there will be four final events to catch on February 25, including men's bobsledding, women's cross-country skiing, women's curling and men's hockey. Canadian Kaetlyn Osmond of Canada took the bronze.

The Red, White and Blue also dominated numerous snowboard competitions with Chloe Kim and Shaun White capturing halfpipe gold and Jamie Anderson and Red Gerard taking home slopestyle gold.

American men scored a surprise 5-3 win over Canada in the semifinal round. The United States was in fourth place with 21 medals, including 8 gold.

And in rural House districts with more Second Amendment voters, Democrats also must tread carefully. In the end, Trump did not stray too far from conservative Republican orthodoxy.

In the political scene, the proximity of PyeongChang to the North and South Korean border caused a fair amount of controversy, with some teams nearly refusing to come in light of the unsafe tensions between the two Korean states.

It's the first time women have been picked as US flagbearers for both the opening and closing of an Olympics since 2004, when basketball's Dawn Staley led the Americans into the Athens Games and soccer's Mia Hamm carried the flag out. A win guarantees at least a silver.

There's no doubt that Korea has benefitted some from the poor play of other previous tournament favorites, namely Canada and Team OAR.

In the much anticipated men's hockey, two-time defending champion Canada has advanced to the semifinals, along with the team from Russian Federation. "It's an exciting time for them and their families". For those who want to sleep in on a Sunday, NBC will edit and rebroadcast it on 8:00 PM ET.

It's set to get very, very cold in the next few days
But over the weekend it will become "even colder with widespread overnight frosts and bitter by day with a marked windchill". Although forecasters are predicting light snow showers from Monday afternoon into Tuesday, Thursday will be the coldest day.
