What a name. Red Gerard. Shaun White. We need a blue.— Laura Ferguson (@lnfergs) February 11, 2018
This is Red Gerard’s 9-year-old sister, Asher, the youngest of the seven Gerard siblings. I asked what she was going to tell her brother when she saw him. “I love you,” she said. pic.twitter.com/QSzhT40nNg— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) February 11, 2018
Bradie Tennell Steals America's Heart
In her Olympic debut, Bradie Tennell scored a 68.94 in the women's event to help Team USA move into third place. Not only did Tennell steal the show in the ice, but she was trending on Twitter after her performance.
Bradie was the queen we don't deserve and was so solid for @TeamUSA today in the short! Technically perfect.— Ashley Wagner (@AshWagner2010) February 11, 2018
me last week: figure skating is cool I guess— gnarly rae jepsen (@saulmalone) February 11, 2018
me during the Olympics: do you idiots even know how hard this triple lutz to triple toe combination that Bradie Tennell just did is? The beauty, the grace.
Chris Mazdzer Has A Need For Speed
Three-time Olympian Chris Mazdzer made history with his silver medal finish in men's singles luge. His runs were nothing short of amazing.
This will be the first time a USA Luge men's athlete will enter the final run of the Olympics in a medal position.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) February 11, 2018
Chris Mazdzer will be second going into Heat 4.
Adam Heidt (2002) and Tony Benshoof (2006) were both fourth, the previous one-run-to-go bests by a USA Luge male.
Even @mazdzer Dog is up and supporting @TeamUSA - Lots of tail wagging for a NEW TRACK RECORD and the fastest heat of the 3 run! #LugeLove #GOteamUSA #emotionalSupportpeacock pic.twitter.com/gHIdF5myZd— USA Luge (@USA_Luge) February 11, 2018

Eyes On The Prize
The U.S. women's hockey team has one goal in mind at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018: a gold medal. Team USA won its first game 3-1 against Finland to keep the dream alive.
And they are all smiles after their first victory!
Say cheese, ladies! 😄🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/oZ3oE2zVc3— Olympic Hockey on NBC (@NHLonNBCSports) February 11, 2018
Matt Hamilton's Lookalikes
In the early days of the Games, Matt Hamilton has become one of the more popular figures, probably because of that fabulous 'stache. He's accumulated quite the stable of lookalikes...
