Mikaela Shiffrin Doing Mikaela Shiffrin Things
Mikaela Shiffrin finished fifth in the giant slalom in Sochi in 2014 and vowed after that race that it wouldn't happen again. She was true to her word, winning gold in PyeongChang. Would you expect anything less from the hottest alpine skier on the planet?

Women's Hockey Renews Intense Border Battle With Canada
Whenever the U.S. women's ice hockey team takes on Canada, you know you're guaranteed a fierce battle. Although Team USA dropped this contest, 2-1, action was intense and it didn't disappoint. (Gold-medal game rematch, maybe?)

John Daly Is A Fan Of John Daly
Did you catch the first two heats of Olympic skeleton? If so, you might've caught Team USA's own John Daly, not to be confused with Team USA's John Daly. Uh, the golfer. Who happens to be a fan of his namesake. Confused yet?
John Daly, for his part, appreciated it.
Thank you John— John Daly (@JohnDalyUSA) February 15, 2018
Positive Vibes Only For Jessie Diggins
When Team USA wins, America celebrates. But when Team USA falls a little short, America all feels the same pain. Cross-country skier Jessie Diggins narrowly missed out on a podium spot, but she's trying to keep the positive vibes flowing.
