Figure skater Mirai Nagasu has become famous for the triple axel in her arsenal; during the team event, she became the third woman ever to land the jump in Olympic competition.

#USAvsCZE Shootout Stress

Though the U.S. men's hockey team fell to the Czech Republic in its quarterfinal matchup, Team USA hung tough with one of the tournament's top seeds. Regulation and overtime weren't enough, and a shootout was needed to decide the victor. The Internet? STRESSED.

Good As Gold

Five-time Olympian Kikkan Randall and two-time Olympian Jessie Diggins can now add Olympic gold medalist to their long list of accolades. The cross-country skiiers won the first women's cross-country skiing medal in Team USA history when Diggins crossed the finish line ahead of Sweden and Norway. Diggins and Randall's performance also broke a 42-year drought for Team USA in the sport. And was the first gold for the country by either gender. It's safe to say Diggins and Randall were proud of their record-breaking performance, and so was Twitter.
