(Olympics) Dutch speed skater makes controversial remark after team pursuit


America's women Alpine ski team acknowledged there will be a void when all-time great Lindsey Vonn eventually leaves the sport but pointed to Wednesday's downhill results in Pyeongchang Games as proof they can contend for podiums for years to come. Anderson got her gold-winning score on her first run of the day in weather conditions, which included strong winds, that could have been risky for the competitors. PyeongChang downhill gold medalist Sofia Goggia of Italy is in the field, but slalom gold medalist Frida Hansdotter of Sweden is not. The American was looking at a higher finish before Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway turned in a surprise silver-medal performance as the 19th racer on the course.

Shiffrin posted the fifth-fastest time in Tuesday's third and final downhill training run, but insisted that while the schedule change was "not ideal", she had no regrets.

Bjorgen, who took bronze with Norway, picked up her fourth medal at these Games and now has 14 overall.

USA's Lindsey Vonn reacts after crossing the finish line of the women's Downhill at the Jeongseon Alpine Center during the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games on February 21, 2018 in Pyeongchang.

Later in the week, in women's combined, Vonn will go head to head with fellow U.S. Mikaela Shiffrin.

The University of Kentucky's cheerleaders look to be having fun and keeping busy representing USA Cheer at the Winter Olympics in South Korea this week. But I'm proud. I'm proud to have competed for my country. Vonn couldn't match it when she raced two spots later.

Try as they might to avoid it, it is the first question put to them every time they face the media.

What also keeps gun violence under control is the sense of responsibility deeply engrained in this safety-conscious society. The president will host students and teachers at the White House on Wednesday for a "listening session" on gun control.

The Canadian women came just a hair behind the United States in the bronze medal race of women's team pursuit speed skating.

Diggins' teammate Kikkan Randall set a new record for most events before claiming a medal at the Winters, winning gold in her 18th attempt.

That's the only shade of medal that has eluded the Americans since 1998, the last time they won it all in Nagano when women's hockey made its Olympic debut. She earned a lot of attention for tweeting during the event while earning her place among Olympic athletes.

"Our team atmosphere is so good, and we want to see the fruit of our hard work", he said.

"I wish I could keep going", Vonn said. "I couldn't manage a strong start even though I knew it was important", said Sakazume.

"This is a new team, we're ready to go". I'm really happy for her. "I'd like to make something of myself in the rest of my races". It's possible that Team USA could do it again this year as all four members on the team qualified for the finals.
