Meanwhile, Perrine Laffont became the first Frenchwoman to win the Olympic moguls title with victory in Pyeongchang. The typically relaxed athlete smiled and chuckled when he realized he was assured of a podium spot, and eventually a gold medal.

Canada's Max Parrot - who threw away his second run - was the final man up, and he stomped his run to put the pressure on Gerard.

Later Sunday, Chris Mazdzer added another medal for Team USA and the first men's luge medal for the US when he took silver behind Austria's David Gleirscher. "It's mission accomplished for me here".

"It is an indescribable feeling", Krueger said.

"That ideal race where you get into a flow and just fly to the finish, it doesn't always happen and it didn't happen today", Bloemen said. "It was like, 'Alright, well I'm having fun doing it, ' and I'm like, 'I get to do online school now and not go to actual school.' And it's like I'm sticking with it and I ain't got nothing else going". "On a scale of five, I'd give myself a four, maybe a bit less, a four minus a quarter", she joked. "If North and South Korea will send unified teams on sports and all other sectors, we'll have good results", North Korean player Jong Su Hyon said after the game.

Before qualifying for The Olympics, Gerard confessed that he's not the hyper-ambitious type.

It was the United States' first gold medal of the Pyeongchang Olympics. They are participating under the banner of "Olympic athletes from Russian Federation".

On the second day of full competition, Simen Hegstad Krueger led a Norwegian sweep in the men's skiathlon after recovering from an early fall and breaking a pole.

Two countries have the overall medal lead. It was her 11th medal - six gold, four silver and a bronze.

Gerard was in last place before he strapped on his board for a third and final run.

"Stranger Things 3" episode count revealed
Production on Season 3 will kick off in mid-April at some point. "We're [going to be] dealing with forces of evil that are new". The inevitable drip of information about Stranger Things season three has begun, starting with the episode count.

That left the bronze to McMorris, who admits to being lucky to be alive following a crash in Whistler, Canada, a year ago which left him with 17 broken bones, a collapsed lung and ruptured spleen.

The 24-year-old suffered fractures to his jaw, left arm, pelvis and ribs and sustained a ruptured spleen and collapsed left lung after a backcountry snowboarding accident in Whistler. The average GPA of U.S Ski & Snowboard athletes is 3.6, and they have Monday-Thursday class schedules that leave three days to spend practicing at any of the 10 ski resorts that are less than an hour away from campus.

"I'm on the podium".

"I'm sure it's a ton", he said.

"The lowest point - not being able to move. I wish I could take that back every day of my life". But on Sunday the event was postponed because of high winds.

Simader, who was born in Kenya but raised in Austria, said her passion for skiing grew as she won races at a young age. "Following thorough testing and evaluation including an independent second opinion, Blouin is asymptomatic and is cleared for practice this morning". The teen is set to compete in Big Air, a snowboarding event making its Olympic debut at the 2018 Games.

Bloemen finished in the 5,000 in 6:11.616.

The 31-year-old beat Canada's Ted-Jan Bloemen into second, with Norway's Sverre Lunde Pedersen in third. "I'm just lucky to be here".

Slopestyle snowboarding was introduced to the Olympics in 2014, and so far has always been won by Americans.

In figure skating, three-time ice dancing world champions and Olympic gold and silver medallists Virtue and Moir scored 80.51 points for their short dance to the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy For The Devil", "Hotel California" by the Eagles and Santana's "Oye Como Va". McMorris' best score was 85.2.
