PyeongChang 2018

The Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 were historic for U.S. Olympians, who returned home with 23 medals, including nine golds – the second most by an American team in Olympic Winter Games history. There were several U.S. milestones that punctuated PyeongChang 2018, including Team USA’s 100th gold medal in Olympic Winter Games competition and historic gold medals in cross-country skiing, curling and women’s ice hockey. Bolstered by dominating performances in freestyle skiing and snowboarding, Team USA earned medals in 11 of the 15 sport disciplines, the most for any nation. 

Team USA’s women had a particularly strong showing in PyeongChang, and for the first time in 20 years accounted for more than half of the U.S. medal haul in Winter Games competition with 12 podium finishes, including five golds. While the PyeongChang Games will be remembered for these inspiring medal performances, U.S. athletes also showed an amazing amount of depth with 35 top-six finishes – signaling a wealth of opportunity for the Beijing 2022 Games and beyond.
