  1. Snowboarding: The U.S. dominated the slopes! Redmond Gerard and Chloe Kim (the rookies) as well as Jamie Anderson and Shaun White (the veterans) all picked up gold medals in snowboarding.
  2. Men’s Curling: After a rough start to the Olympic Games, the US Men’s Curling Team put together five straight wins to bring home gold medals!
  3. Women’s Hockey: In a penalty shoot-out thriller, the U.S. Women’s team beat our Canada for a gold medal.
  4. Lindsey Vonn: After being the face of the 2010 Winter Olympics, Vonn could not compete in 2014 in Sochi due to injury. She came back strong and earned another bronze medal in what is likely her last Olympic Games. Everybody likes a good comeback but love them.
