  1. U.S. Skiers Rack Up Gold, Silver and Bronze

    The U.S. swept the podium in slopestyle skiing’s Olympic debut on Thursday, thanks to the performances of Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy and Nick Goepper. Meanwhile, the home crowd looked on in shock as veteran Russian figure-skating star Evgeni Plushenko bowed out with a back injury. His departure cleared the way for a record-breaking performance from Japanese teenager Yuzuru Hanyu, who became the first skater ever to break 100 points in the short program. The U.S. has moved up to second in the medals count, tied with the Netherlands, with Norway still in the lead.
