U.S. dominating snowboarding, winning gold in men's and women's slopestyle and halfpipe (and bronze in the women's halfpipe).

The men's halfpipe was amazing: Shaun White got an incredible 94.25 (out of a possible 100) on his first run to go to #1. On the second run, a Japanese guy got 95.25 and White washed out. So it'd all come down to the third run (each competitor has three runs, and only the best score counts).
Remember, White had won gold in 2006 and 2010, but finished a disappointing fourth in 2014.
So now, back to 2018,  it all comes down to the final run. White was in second place, guaranteed at least a silver, but needed to beat the amazing score of 95.25 for gold. White was the last competitor to run .......... and he BOOMED a 97.75!!! Incredible. You can watch the video here http://www.nbcolympics.com/video/shaun-white-wins-halfpipe-gold-epic-final-run (you can skip the first 90 seconds)

As usual, the Dutch are dominating speedskating (and probably not much else?  Huh )

IMO, short-track is much more interesting than speedskating  Wink

US finished fourth in golds (9, one below its all-time high from 2010) and fourth in overall medals (23). Some heads have to roll ...

But hey, there were some great moments (gold in snowboarding slopestyle amd halfpipe, gold in womenís hockey over Canada!!!)
