Team USA is heading home from the 2018 Winter Games


The PyeongChang Winter Olympics are in the books. The curtain came down on the 2018 Games yesterday with an exuberant Closing Ceremony. Dancers, skaters, DJs and K-pop stars all performed in the two-hour-plus ceremony. Cross-country gold medalist Jessie Diggins served as U.S. flag bearer for the Closing Ceremony. She led Team USA during the procession in the Parade of Nations.

In the end, Team USA captured 23 medals from these Winter Olympics, their lowest total since 1998 in Japan. It's also five shy of their winning total from the 2014 Games in Sochi [[SO-chee]], Russia. In all, Team USA claimed nine gold, eight silver and six bronze medals. Norway led all nations with 39 medals, followed by Germany with 31.

Still, there were significant bright spots, such as Diggins’ win, the women’s hockey team beating Canada…and of course, Team USA bringing home the gold in men's curling over the weekend. The Americans bested Sweden 10-7 in the gold medal match to reach the top of the podium in PyeongChang. It's the first ever Olympic gold for the U.S. curling team – the only other podium finish for the U.S. came at the 2006 Turin Games when they won bronze.

  • Now, the countdown is on for the next Olympics. The best athletes in the world will come together again for the Summer Games in July of 2020 in Japan. It will be the second Summer Games held in Tokyo and the fourth Olympics in Japan overall (Tokyo hosted the Summer Games in 196, the Winter Games were in Sapporo in 1972 and Nagano in 1998). But then in 2022, our best and brightest will join the world at the Winter Games in Beijing.

 Men's gold-medal winning Curling team accidentally gets the women's medal

Wow I sure hope Sweden’s Women’s Curling team doesn’t mind some slightly used medals. Because before the gold medals for curling were placed around their necks yesterday—after they bested Korea in the gold medal match—they were actually placed around ours.

Well, not yours, I doubt team captain John Shuster and company are listening to this. But it was Schuster and the rest of the American curlers who were briefly presented the wrong medals after beating Sweden 10-7 in the championship on Saturday.

The team, led by Shuster, took the top step of the podium to receive their prizes but when they looked at the medals, they noticed that the back said "women's." The right medals were quickly retrieved and swapped out.

Shuster just laughed it off saying "A gold medal in curling is a gold medal in curling."

Leave it to a curler to be able to brush something off so quickly.
