The penultimate day of competition at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 was a historic one for Team USA. The men's curling team, led by veteran skip John Shuster, defeated Sweden in the gold-medal game for Team USA's first-ever gold medal in curling. Earlier in the day, Kyle Mack kept up Team USA's success in snowboarding with his silver-medal performance in big air's Olympic debut. In the other sports in the mountains, alpine skiing had its inaugural team event, snowboarding competed in parallel giant slalom and cross-country skiing hosted their longest race of the Games, the men's 50-kilometer mass start. In the coastal cluster long track speedskating wrapped up its events with the men's and women's mass start races.
