Moreover, there are over 100 events this year, marking the first time the winter games have ever surpassed 100 medal events. Mikaela Shiffrin won the gold medal in the 2014 games for solemn, an event where you ski downhill between poles and gates. These include the finals for bobsledding, cross-country skiing, curling, figure skating, freestyle skiing, hockey, speed skating and more.
Today, Team USA's female athletes are having an extra great day as three big medals have already been obtained.
Japanese figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu won the gold medal in figure skating and became the first man to get back-to-back gold medals in the Winter Olympics since Dick Button in 1948 and 1952.
For Italy's Arianna Fontana, victor of the 500m last Tuesday, the silver was her seventh Olympic medal, a record for women's short track.
At the time of this writing, Canada had claimed 17 medals - six gold, five silver and six bronze - the third most medals behind Norway and Germany.
It's more than just the medals, though. "Silver" in the team of the Netherlands, "bronze" - American athletes. But like anything else in American culture, the Olympics needs starpower that fans and viewers alike can relate to on a nightly basis. "We are a new team". The 15-year-old Zagitova holds the narrow advantage. Medvedeva's strength is her artistry, but she is also an excellent jumper, which makes her pretty much the compete package.
Or Czech Repubic skier Ester Ledecka, a professional snowboard racing on hand-me-down skis in the women's super-G, who shocked everyone, including herself, when she upset the best in the field for gold.
United Kingdom viewers can watch live coverage of the event on BBC Two at 11am on Sunday 25 February. White laid down a flawless run scoring a 97.75 with the gold medal on the line in a thrilling halfpipe competition, surpassing Ayumu Hirano's 95.25. Allegations of sexual misconduct from a 2016 incident have reemerged as the #MeToo movement entered the realm of the Olympics.
"When you're still an athlete you just have focus on other races".
Japan beat defending champion the Netherlands in an Olympic record to win the women's team pursuit, and the USA women picked up bronze. Kaillie Humphries of Canada, the two-time defending gold medalist, won bronze.
So, when do the 2018 Winter Olympics end?
It will also air during primetime.
