Olympics Day 14 Recap: Team USA

February 17, 2022

Figure skating: In a shocking turn of events, 15-year-old ROC figure skater Kamila Valieva placed fourth in this morning’s women’s singles free skate, meaning medals were awarded while the ongoing doping investigation surrounding Valieva continues.

  • As for our Americans, Alysa Liu, Mariah Bell and Karen Chen turned in admirable performances to finish seventh, 10th and 16th, respectively. Proud.

🎿 Skiing: Mikaela Shiffrin’s unexpectedly challenging Olympics continued overnight, as the two-time gold medalist posted her third did not finish (DNF) of the Games, this time in the alpine combined.

💨 Speed skating: Brittany Bowe — who gave up her 1,500m spot to teammate and eventual gold medalist Erin Jackson — won bronze in this morning’s 1,000m final. Good karma, great vibes.

🥌 Curling: They brought the drip, but Team Shuster came up just short in this morning’s semis, falling 8–4 to Great Britain and ending their hopes of repeat gold. That said, a podium finish is still within throwing distance. They’ll take on Canada in tomorrow’s 1:05 a.m. ET bronze medal match.
