Adam Rippon Slays His Olympic Debut

Figure skater Adam Rippon is extremely outspoken about... well, everything, but especially his confidence. Making his Olympic debut at 28 years old, he proved to the world that his confidence is well-founded. Rippon skated a dazzling free skate to help the U.S. to team bronze.


Triple Axel-ing Into History

Not to be outdone, Rippon's teammate Mirai Nagasu took to Olympic ice with something to prove and oh-so-casually made history. By landing a triple axel, she became just the third woman -- and the first U.S. woman -- ever to land the jump in Olympic competition. Legendary.


Jamie Anderson: Team USA's Golden Girl

Can you say repeat?! Jamie Anderson is the queen of slopestyle snowboarding and she proved it again with her second straight Olympic gold medal.


Chloe Kim Makes Olympic Debut -- While Tweeting About Ice Cream

Chloe Kim scored a 95.50 in her second qualifying run of women's halfpipe snowboarding. Right before that, the 17-year-old was tweeting about how she wanted some ice cream. Casual.

Ice cream-loving teen or the next big thing? Chloe Kim is both. 


Team USA on the "TODAY" Show

The experience of making an Olympic team is a dream come true for Team USA athletes. But the fun doesn't stop there. The U.S. bobsled and figure skating teams had a chance to visit the "TODAY" show on Monday -- and take a few selfies with the hosts.
