If we counted only the Sochi medals that were from sports on the Olympic program in 1988, the USA would have three golds (two Alpine skiing, one ice dancing), two silvers (Alpine skiing and women's hockey, which wasn't contested before 1998) and five bronze (two Alpine skiing, two bobsled and one luge).

The Winter Olympics will be continuing through February 25 with more events to be involved and many other Olympic champions to be named.

The Republic of Korea has always been a powerhouse in short-track speed skating, while Yuna Kim won the country's first figure skating gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, spurring more local interest in winter sports.

The most decisive Olympic skeleton champion ever is a 23-year-old who had no idea what he was doing on a sled a few years ago and now stands taller than anyone else in the sport.

Here's what you missed in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang while you were sleeping.

Parsons, who finished just two hundredths off silver, was nevertheless ecstatic after claiming Britain's first medal of the Games.

Lee said Yun had been training on home ice for about two years and knows the curves and turns of the Olympic Sliding Centre better than anyone. The lowest seeded team left standing will draw the No. 1 seed in the semifinals. The U.S. did beat them both times they met at the Four Nations tournament in November.

Not Shaun White blitzing the halfpipe in a final run to win gold, a win that came with some baggage by itself. In Sochi, he was eliminated in the quarterfinals.

Women's 10km freestyle (Thursday 1:30 a.m. ET/3:30 p.m. local time): Team USA's Jessie Diggins missed out on medals in the classic sprint and skiathlon. Russian Federation - which won the medal count in Sochi four years ago - is still waiting for its first gold medal. A post-event interview captured her profound depression.

"I work hard but play even harder". If Diggins wins, she will become the first American woman to medal in cross country at the Olympics.

White, 31, won the medal at Phoenix Snow Park in the Olympics host town of PyeongChang, Gangwon Province, with the top score of 97.75 points.
