Brita Sigourney Nabs Halfpipe Bronze
Halfpipe skier Brita Sigourney finished sixth in her -- and her event's -- Olympic debut in Sochi in 2014. Four years later, Sigourney wasn't to be denied, as she landed three clean runs to secure her spot on the podium.

The Shibs Dance Their Way To The Podium
Maia and Alex Shibutani found themselves sitting in fourth place after Monday's short dance. But they poured their hearts into their free dance, and their incredible performance was rewarded with a bronze medal.

Thanks to Maia and Alex for keeping the streak alive for US Ice dancing! pic.twitter.com/4xkMRs08Rg
The U.S. men's ice hockey team defeated Slovakia, 5-1, to advance to the quarterfinals. Team USA's efforts were led by a pair of college hockey players, Ryan Donato and Troy Terry, and the future looks bright!
It's been a blast to watch Troy Terry play here. Denver U kid/#NHLDucks prospect has been cutting through defensemen and busting to the net like nobody's business.— Stephen Whyno (@SWhyno) February 16, 2018
Troy Terry carrying Team USA on his back tonight. We see this every weekend at @DU_Hockey...enjoy, world.— JJ Lane (@jjhlane) February 20, 2018
Ok seriously, Troy Terry is an assist machine!!!!! 3-0 USA!!!!! pic.twitter.com/vUjratZnIJ— Logan Hesselius (@LoganH1421) February 20, 2018
THAT’S BOSTON BRUINS PROSPECT RYAN DONATO TO YOU— Pete Blackburn (@PeteBlackburn) February 20, 2018
Been watching the U.S.-Slovakia game. Seems to me that Ryan Donato and Troy Terry do just about everything for U.S. That’s two future NHL players; Donato with the Bruins and Terry with the Ducks.— Dan Rosen (@drosennhl) February 20, 2018
That’s Ryan Donato’s 3rd goal of the tournament. So....tell me again about how young college kids couldn’t compete here?— Dave Schwartz (@Dave_Schwartz) February 20, 2018
The Need For Speed
Aja Evans and Jamie Greubel Poser started their 2018 Olympic journey looking to upgrade from their bronze medal from Sochi, while Elana Meyers Taylor, pushed by first-time Olympian Lauren Gibbs, is seeking her first gold after taking bronze and then silver the past two Olympics. Halfway through the competition, Meyers Taylor/Gibbs are in second with Greubel Poser/Evans in fourth. Team USA could potentially see two women's bobsled medals this week.
