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.
I can’t believe Jamie Anderson, Chloe Kim, Red Gerard and Shaun White all hold the office of president of the United States #blessed— Joseph Guzy (@JosephGuzy) February 22, 2018

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.

Someone changed her position from goalie to United State Secretary of Defense 😹😹 pic.twitter.com/D1MSAAwoNF— Emmaleigh (@CoyoteGirl23) February 22, 2018
I am now dead.— Charles P. Pierce (@CharlesPPierce) February 22, 2018
Lamoreaux made about 6 moves and the US goalie is 20 years old and absolutely money.
I am now dead.
The Team USA women trained for most of their national team careers only making $6,000 every 4 years. Last year, they risked it all to boycott the world championships and fight for a better present and brighter future for the sport. Now, they're Olympic champions. #BeBoldForChange— Lindsay Gibbs (@linzsports) February 22, 2018

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.
What a HUUUUUGE shot by @Shoostie2010! Skipper with a big one to bail us out and get 1 to tie the game at the fifth end break. Whew.— Team Shuster (@TeamShuster) February 22, 2018
