Olympic Recap Day 13

The U.S. women’s hockey team played Canada in the Gold medal game last night and WON it in a SHOOTOUT.  The last time we won was in 1998.  Canada took the Gold in 2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014.

Kikkan Randall and Jessie Diggins became the first American women to EVER medal in cross-country skiing at the Olympics . . . and it was a GOLD medal.  They won the team sprint event by TWO-TENTHS of a second.

Jessie is 26.  Kikkan is 35 and the only MOM on the U.S. Olympic team this year.  She has a 22-month-old son, and this is her FIFTH Olympics, but she’d never medaled before.  The only other time a U.S. skier medaled in cross-country was in 1976.
