Day 12 at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 was a historic one for Team USA. The duo of Jessie Diggins and Kikkan Randall became the first American women to win an Olympic medal in cross-country skiing as they won gold in the women's team sprint. The bobsled team of Elana Meyers Taylor and Lauren Gibbs also had a successful day, earning a silver medal in women's bobsled and continuing the streak of U.S. women medaling at every Games since the event's debut in 2002. Long track speedskating also secured a spot on the podium as the team of Heather Bergsma, Brittany Bowe, Mia Manganello and Carlijn Schoutens earned bronze for the nation's first women's long track medal since 2002. Also, Lindsey Vonn -- racing in what may be her final Olympic downhill event -- took home the bronze to become the oldest woman to medal in alpine skiing at the Oylmpics.
