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.

They are in charge of Ireland's and Wales' defence respectively and will be looking to shut down their opponents with line speed. I don't think we should do that to them, or even try, but we do need to control the pace of the game and control field position.

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.

The court also sent the two legislators to a 14-day judicial custody in Tihar Jail. Pathak said the police would be opposing the bail plea.

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.
