Day 7 of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 was full of near misses and surprises for Team USA. Lindsey Jacobellis came heartbreakingly close to her second Olympic medal in snowboardcross, finishing a mere 0.03 seconds off the podium, while Mikaela Shiffrin finished fourth in women's slalom, 0.08 seconds off herself. At the other venues around PyeongChang the skiers kept up their competitions, with alpine, cross-country and freestyle skiing awarding medals, while the Olympic Sliding Centre shifted to skeleton competitions. And on the coast in Gangneug figure skating, curling and speedskating continued their own events, while the men's hockey team got in the win column with a 2-1 victory over Slovakia.
