Kaetlyn Osmond finishes third in Olympic Games women's singles skating

Kaetlyn Osmond finishes third in Olympic Games women's singles skating

Given her age, Chen should have another opportunity for an Olympic medal in 2022 if she wants to pursue that path.

But figure skater Kaetlyn Osmond believes she was only able to make the step up to bronze on Friday because of the misstep she made on September 11, 2014. He was also Japan's first men's Olympic gold medalist.

Kaetlyn Osmond's bronze in women's figure skating lifted the Canadian medal total for the 2018 Winter Games to 27, one more than we managed at home in Vancouver in 2010.

To be sure, the US has enjoyed its share of inspiring success stories, including a cross-country victory by Kikkan Randall and Jessie Diggins and the women hockey team's shootout victory Thursday over Canada to halt a 20-year stretch without a gold medal.

Silver: Evgenia Medvedeva, OAR - Undefeated for two years and twice a world champion, she lost to her training partner at Europeans.

"It was very, very exciting to watch the contest today". Jessica Diggins and Kikkan Randall edged Sweden and Norway to bring home the gold in the team cross-country event. I'm feeling a variety of emotions and I might even cry after the show.




After an incredible Winter Olympics, the 2018 Pyeongchang Games will wrap up on Sunday with the closing ceremony. Zagitova became the first athlete from the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation to win Olympic gold at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang. The results give Canada a repeat 1-2 Olympic finish from four years ago in Sochi.

René Bourque (17), of Canada reacts after the men's hockey team's semifinal loss to Germany on Friday. But unlike Belarus in Salt Lake City, the Germans shouldn't be a pushover.

"The expectation of winning gold medals is pretty out of whack and I think we need to be proud of all of our athletes for how much they've sacrificed and put in to be here", she said. What we're saying is there's a chance Canada loses, though the way they subdued Finland's offence in the quarter-finals means you shouldn't bank on it.

Silver: Sui Wenjing and Han Cong, China - Favorites heading in, they won the short program, but had two uncharacteristic bobbles in the free skate. Falling short at the 2018 Olympics could provide her with invaluable experience four years from now. That would leave her position at the top of the all-time medal rankings beyond dispute, ahead of of Bjoerndalen (13 medals; eight of them golds), Dutch speed skater Ireen Wuust (11 medals; five golds) and her fellow Norwegian cross-country legend Bjoern Daehlie (eight medals; six golds). The broadcast will re-air at 9 p.m. PT.
