Notable American Results: In the second full day of competition in PyeongChang, the United States made gains in both the Men’s Luge and Women’s Ice Hockey events, as Chris Mazdzer clinched America’s third silver medal ever in the event, edging out Johannes Ludwig from Germany with one of the best runs yet at the Olympic Sliding Centre. During that breakthrough, the women’s Ice Hockey team grinded out a 3-1 win in preliminaries over highly-touted Finland. Relying on star skaters Kendall Coyne and Dani Cameranesi, the United States was able to net crucial goals late in the contest, securing the win.

Other Key Results: The Norwegian Cross-Country Skiing team stays dominant as Simen Hegstad Krueger, Martin Johnsrud Sundby and Hans Christer Holund sweep the podium, in descending order respectively, in the Men’s 15-kilometer Skiathlon. Sven Kramer of the Netherlands adds to his long list of accomplishments by winning his third straight gold medal in the Men’s 5,000-meter speed skating event. Dutch dominance has proven to stay as both the men’s and women’s teams are racking up the medals, having a 1-2-3 women’s sweep yesterday in long track speed skating competition.

What To Watch For: Now having two medals under its belt, the United States team looks to use the new momentum to raise that total in tomorrow’s events, featuring Alpine and Freestyle Skiing, both of which are America’s marquis events.
