Canada wins Olympic figure skating gold, U.S. grabs bronze

The Vancouver's Olympic Cauldron is located in Jack Poole Plaza

They'll play Switzerland for mixed doubles curling gold on Tuesday.

If you like underdog/comeback stories, look no further than American Sarah Hendrickson, who brutally injured her knee in this event at Sochi but recovered to qualify for PyeongChang.

Gabrielle Daleman of Newmarket clinched the top spot in the team figure skating competition after finishing third in the women's free skate on Monday with teammates Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir still to compete in the ice dance.

Afterwards, Chan said: "I'm just happy I did the best I could".

An American reporter asked: can a team medal make up for missing individual gold?

Moir and Virtue helped lead Canada to the gold medal in the Olympic Team Event. "They carried me", he said after the competition on Monday. "A handful of the girls were like, 'No, it's not safe" and things like that.

"Maybe that means we're doing our job?"

The 27-year-old Chan, who had struggled with his jumps in the team event's short programme, landed the first two quads of his free skate.

Men's singles skater Adam Rippon, who won over many with not only his third-place performance in the men's free skate but also his interview during NBC's broadcast Sunday night, had yet to tweet following his performance. But spare some cheers for Clark, who has never finished lower than fourth in the halfpipe at the Olympics and is looking for another medal in her fifth Games. "I'm really proud of my team".

Nagasu made some figure skating history, accomplishing her rare feat just 21 seconds into the women's free skate. "And, I tripped a couple times". "To nail it the way I did - and even out of the corner of my eye, I could see my team mates standing in excitement". "I tried not to get too frustrated and let it bug me".

Laurie Blouin of Canada finished second, with Finland's Enni Rukajarvi third.

Laurie Blouin's silver medal in the snowboard slopestyle event was first ever Canadian athlete to medal in the women's snowboard slopestyle event.

Matt Graham of Australia took silver and Daichi Hara of Japan earned bronze, each picking up the first medal for their countries at the games.

The 20-year old has been through a tough journey to get to the Olympics. Australia's Matt Graham took silver with 82.57 while Daichi Hara captured bronze with 82.19.

Lundby turned World Cup ski jumping domination into Olympic gold with a jump of 110 meters for 264.6 points. In the former, heavy favorites Martin Fourcade of France and Johannes Thingnes-Bø of Norway failed to reach the podium for the 10 kilometer sprint, with Germany's Arnd Peiffer stealing a surprise gold.

Chloe Kim's coronation is complete.

The two skaters now have four Olympic medals each over the course of their careers.

Canada won gold with 73 points, well ahead of Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation (66), and the Americans (62). However, their joint vision for the 2018 Winter Olympics differed from their "edgy" moves from before.
