Team USA is suddenly surging at the Winter Olympics

Team USA is suddenly surging at the Winter Olympics

On the ice, Osmond scored 152.15 in her long program to music from "Black Swan" for a combined score of 231.02.

Kaetlyn Osmond of Canada won bronze.

The events will be broadcast on NBC and NBCSN (all times Eastern). The U.S.is barreling toward its worst showing in women's figure skating at the Olympics.

With the top six skaters to go, the Americans nearly certainly will wind up ninth, 10th and 11th.

They have a few more days left to keep going that way. It was also her second Olympic medal after taking silver in Sochi four years ago.

I took a chairlift ride up the mountain with Jean Francois Menard, the mental performance coach of 25-year-old Canadian Mikaël Kingsbury, the newest Olympic champion in men's moguls.

"You're starting to see a lot of up-and-coming kids trying the triples, trying the triple-triples, and even below juniors", Zakrajsek said.

The general manager of Canada's national team programs says they expect professionalism and sportsmanship from their players.

Kaetlyn Osmond was all smiles after a magnificent free skate at the Pyeongchang Olympics, and a memorable month that began with a gold medal in the team event and ended with individual bronze.

"It was super unexpected", said Schulting, who crossed the line with her mouth wide open in amazement. She described the location as "right by the men's downhill start".

Canada wrapped up preliminary play with a consolation 9-8 win over the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation but it did little to ease the disappointment as the defending gold medalists missed out on the playoffs with a 4-5 record.

Another near capacity crowd of mainly South Koreans filled the Gangneung Curling Center to cheer on their beloved Garlic Girls, who have become the social media darlings of the Winter Games.

Diggins - who thrust herself across the finish line to give the Americans a dazzling gold medal in the cross-country team sprint - has been selected as the US flagbearer for Sunday night's closing ceremony at the Pyeongchang Games. But Kristofferson couldn't make it all the way down on the second run.

American David Wise has successfully defended his gold medal in the men's halfpipe, edging teammate Alex Ferreira. Kaetlyn Osmond of Canada is now third, but Japan's Satoko Miyahara and Kaori Sakamoto are within striking distance.

The most thrilling of them all came in Team USA hockey's 3-2 shootout win over archrival Canada for the gold, its first since winning it all in the sport's inaugural Olympics in 1998.

Zagitova scored 239.57 points, Medvedeva 238.26.

Looks like the records set in South Korea may not only be in competition. However, North Korea surprisingly agreed to participate in this year's games, as well as help form a unified Korean women's hockey team.
