The United States women hockey team ended a 4 game gold medal streak by the Canadians in a 3-2 game that went to a shootout. The first gold medal of the Olympics was won by a 17 year old Red Gerard who won the Men’s Slope-style. He then went on to swear multiple times on NBC. Chloe Kim another 17 year old took home a gold medal in Women’s half pipe. One of the more inspiring medals of the games was a bronze won by 33 year old legend Lindsey Vonn. In what was probably her final Olympic event  of her career she took 3rd in Alpine Downhill Skiing. She was very emotional after the race during an interview where she cried and expressed her gratitude to everyone that helped her along the way and said that she wished she could ski forever but her body could not allow it.
