Freestyle Skiing (1 gold, 1 silver)
David Wise defended his Olympic title and first-time Olympian Alex Ferreira earned silver in the men’s halfpipe. After spills on his first two drops, Wise had a flawless final run to earn a massive 97.20 and take over the top spot. The two-time Olympian was on top of the Team USA podium sweep in Sochi 2014 and earned gold at X Games Aspen just before these Games.

Ferreira was leading after each of the first two runs with scores of 92.60 and 96.00. While he was unable to beat Wise’s final run, he continued to one-up himself, scoring 96.40 in his third run. After narrowly missing Sochi 2014, the rookie made the most of his first Olympics, taking home silver. MORE

Two-time Olympians Aaron Blunck and Torin Yater-Wallace also competed in the finals. Blunck posted 84.8 points on his final run to secure seventh place. Yater-Wallace scored 65.2 on his first run but fell on his next two attempts, finishing ninth.

Ice Hockey (1 gold)
For the first time since 1998, Team USA defeated Canada for the Olympic gold medal in women’s ice hockey. The U.S. women bested the four-time Olympic champions, 3-2, in a shootout after tying the game in regulation with 6:21 to go.

Goalkeeper Maddie Rooney made a diving save early in the first period to keep the score even at zero after a slew of shots by Canada. On their third power play opportunity of the game, Hilary Knight deflected a slap shot from Sidney Morin into the net with less than a minute to play, giving Team USA a 1-0 lead to end the first.

The Canadians came out fighting in the second period, notching a goal right after the intermission to tie the game, and striking again in the 26th minute to take the lead. In an exciting third period, Monique Lamoureux-Morando netted the equalizer, hammering home a slap shot in the 53rd minute on a transition breakaway off a pass from Kelly Pannek. The tie held at the end of the period to force a 20-minute sudden victory overtime, with both teams even, 2-2.

In overtime, Megan Keller missed high on a breakaway shot from Meghan Duggan with six and a half minutes to go. Keller was sent to the box with less than two minutes to go, giving Canada a power play advantage in the final minutes of the game. Rooney made a clutch save in the last minute, sending the game to a shootout.

Both teams stayed neck and neck in the initial five-shot round of shootout, with points notched by Gigi Marvin and Amanda Kessel, and three saves for Rooney. For the sixth shot, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson went for the double deke and scored, putting the pressure on Canada. Rooney came up with a big save to secure gold for Team USA. MORE

Snowboarding (1 silver)
Jamie Anderson earned her second medal of the Games, taking home silver in the Olympic debut of women’s big air. The two-time Olympian earned 90 points on her first run and 87.25 on her second. With the top two scores of three jumps used to determine the final rankings, this gave Anderson an early lead with a total score of 177.25. On the third and final run, however, a stumble on the landing provided the opening for Austrian Anna Gasser to take the lead.

With this podium finish, Anderson now has three Olympic medals to her name, having successfully defended her Sochi 2014 slopestyle title last week. MORE

Julia Marino, in her second Olympics, rounded out the top-ten finishers. First-time Olympian Jessika Jenson also competed, earning 11th.

Alpine Skiing (1 silver)
Two-time Olympic champion Mikaela Shiffrin added another Olympic medal to her collection, taking silver in the women's alpine combined. Shiffrin held the sixth spot after downhill, clocking 1:41.35. After posting the third-fastest time in slalom, Shiffrin was able to jump up the rankings to take home her third Olympic medal, each in different events. MORE

Four-time Olympian Lindsey Vonn built up a massive lead in the downhill portion of the competition, finishing in 1:39.37 to top the field by 0.74 seconds. As the last to start in slalom, the stage was set for Vonn to capture yet another Olympic podium, but she skied out near the top of the course. Alice Merryweather ended in 15th place with an overall time of 2:26.90.

Two-time Olympian David Chodounsky led the American men in slalom, finishing 18th with a time of 1:40.84. American Mark Engel, in his Olympic debut, climbed twelve spots with his second run to finish 31st (1:49.31). Nolan Kasper, three-time Olympian, ranked 34th after the first run but did not finish the second.

Susan Dunklee, Clare Egan, Joanne Reid and Emily Dreissigacker represented Team USA in the women’s 4x6-kilometer relay, finishing 13th with a time of 1:14:05.3.

The American men defeated reigning Olympic champions Canada in the semifinals, 5-3, to advance to the gold medal game. The victory assures Team USA at least a silver medal, which will mark the nation’s highest finish in Olympic history. The team will play Sweden for the gold medal on Feb. 24.

Tied 2-2 after seven ends, the Americans gained a two-point lead in the eighth. After Canada picked up one point in the ninth, Team USA entered the 10th end with the final stone advantage, which skip John Shuster used to full effect. His final throw cleared Canada's lone stone and settled at the top of the button for the final point to seal the win.

Nordic Combined
Ben Loomis, Ben Berend, Taylor Fletcher and Bryan Fletcher competed in the large hill/4x5-kilometer team event, finishing 10th with a final time of 51:26.5.
