It’s hard to believe that the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 were earlier this year, just a short 10 months ago. It was quite the start of a successful year for Team USA. Across the athletes and the @TeamUSA social media platforms, fans celebrated the countless emotional and memorable moments. Let’s take a look at 15 of the top posts on social media from the Winter Games.
Nathan Chen, the Shibutanis, Adam Rippon and Mirai Nagasu brought us some of our favorite figure skating highlights…

Trying to think of a caption is actually impossible but all I can say is thank you to everyone who's been there for me since the beginning. I am so grateful to be surrounded by people I love with all my heart and so thankful for my family and their never ending love and support. Glad I could bring home the Gold!! @gettysport
At the Winter Games, Mikaela Shiffrin won her second straight Olympic gold medal, plus a silver – at the young age of 22. On the other hand, a bronze medal meant something different for Lindsey Vonn, as it marked the conclusion of a successful legacy.
The U.S. women’s ice hockey team, men’s curling team and the cross-country skiing combo of Jessie Diggins and Kikkan Randall also brought us moments we won’t soon forget. While these memories were the most prominent on social media, they don’t scratch the surface on all of the impressive feats accomplished by our athletes at this year’s Winter Games.
