Notable American Results: In the second to last Sunday of winter Olympic competition from PyeongChang, with numerous events having medal events on the line, the United States was not able to make any major moves in the hunt and kept its overall total at 10 medals, a disappointing outing by any regards with only one week left. The only real gains the American team made was at the hockey arena, where the women qualified for the gold-medal match after defeating Finland 5-0. The final will be against  Canada on Monday night. As it draws nearer, the team looks to keep their streak alive and close out the games on top.

Other Key Results: Alpine skiing, cross-country skiing and biathlon among others saw their medals snagged by European forces like Norway and Germany once again. Yet, the only breakthrough was in the women’s 500-meter speed skating final, where the Asian nations of Japan and South Korea went one and two on the podium. Other than those two medals and an aerial skiing silver from China, it was all Europe yesterday.

What to Watch For: The United States ladies hockey team competes against old foe Canada in the late hours of Monday evening to see who will be named the world’s best. There will also be ski jumping and bobsled medals up for grabs.
