Jamie Anderson Goes Three For Three

Jamie Anderson is the Olympic hero America deserves. In 2014, she became the first woman to ever win Olympic gold in slopestyle. Not only did she defend her crown in PyeongChang, she won silver in the Olympic debut of big air.

 

David Wise Is Twice As Nice

The halfpipe king has reclaimed his crown! Wise stomped his third run in the men's halfpipe skiing to ensure that the Olympic title he earned in Sochi would remain his for four more years. This time he was joined by Olympic rookie Alex Ferreira, who claimed silver with three strong runs. Not too shabby!

 

Two Decades In The Making

Gold at last. The U.S. women's ice hockey team defeated Canada in the gold-medal game to finally win gold for the first time since 1998, when women's hockey debuted at the Games. The stars of the show were Maddie Rooney, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando; but every member of Team USA felt victorious after the long-awaited win.

 

Curling Sweeps Toward Gold

In a must-win semifinal matchup against Canada, Team USA again came out on top of the three-time reigning Olympic champion. Team Shuster advanced to the gold-medal game for the first time in Team USA history. With the win, the U.S. is guaranteed a curling medal for the first time since 2006 when it won its only medal to date. America had an early wake-up call for the match, but fans on Twitter didn't seem to mind.
