My Ikon is Liz Swaney and she did seven tricks (180x5, Alley Oop, 180) compared to the others' five or six, so she shoulda won at least a bronze.

It’s nice to see some great sports today and by US Athletes too!!! Hockey, Davd Wise in the clutch, Mikaela and Lindsay (even tho she dnf’d slalom), big air snowboard, speed skating pursuit, bobsled, x country (OK those were yesterday but the news was today) WOW! We might have doubled the medal count...

I should go to bed but I think my heart rate is too high

I dont give a poop about hockey and I dont think any game should be decided on a shootout but that was one of the most exciting things I've seen in a long while.

The media is loving the crazed play by play of the xc finale. Turn up the volume. "Klaebo bakken"

NBC Olympics
@NBCOlympics
7h
UNBELIEVABLE!

@kikkanimal & @jessdiggs earn the first ever cross-country #gold medal for @TeamUSA, with a pass that will go down in American Olympic history! #WinterOlympics #BestOfUS

'HERE COMES DIGGINS! HERE COMES DIGGINS!'
NBC's call of historic finish is golden
Jessie Diggins and Kikkan Randall delivered the historic gold. NBC's crew, including Duluth's Chad Salmela, delivered a golden call — from America, surprisingly.

^ This x10!

Biathalon has to be the most underrated sport in the Olympics. I was watching the women's biathalon team relay this am and couldn't turn away. Every time they would get to the shooting range all I could think was JEEBUS what's taking her so long to shoot?!? Then the German girls started missing a bunch of shots and it made sense why they would take so long to calm down. That must be so nerve racking! I think Belarus ended up winning - who would have guessed that?

I'm not a hockey fan either, but I'm so glad I stayed up for that very exciting shootout! Congrats ladies...YES you can! You made us proud!! :clap: :inlove:

I missed David Wise's and Jamie Anderson's runs because I was in a meeting until 8:00 p.m., but watched videos of them and was wow'd. Congrats to both of them!

No kidding. I can barely drink water w/o choking after chugging up a hill much less shoot straight.

I think every shot missed is a penalty lap of 20 seconds. They have to balance taking too long for the accurate shot or just taking the time.

All these grueling sports are from Scandinavia. It doesnt sound like much fun over there.
