    There was a delay due to weather concerns. In fact, the women's slopestyle event was reduced to two runs instead of three due to the delay.

    Long Track Speed Skating - Women's 1500m

    If Sven Kramer is the Netherlands' legend on the men's side of speed skating, then Ireen Wust is the Netherlands' legend on the women's side.

    Wust is the first speed skater to win 10 medals after she collected her fifth career Winter Olympic Gold Medal in the Women's 1500m race.

    Wust ties Germany's Claudia Pechstein, American legends Bonnie Blair and Eric Heiden and Finland's Clas Thunberg for the second most Olympic gold medals in Olympic speed skating history.

    Only old Soviet Union speed skater Lidiya Skoblikova has more gold medals in speed skating with six.

    Japan's Miho Takagi took silver and Wust's Dutch teammate Marrit Leenstra took bronze.

    Medal Count - Day 3: Monday February 12, 2018
    https://www.pyeongchang2018.com/en/g...-standings.htm

    Norway continues to lead all nations in total medals with nine.

    But Germany continues to lead all nations in total golds with four.

    The Germans are also locked in a three-way tie for the second most total medals with seven along with the Netherlands and Canada.

    The United States round out the top five with four medals.

    As for Asian rivals, 2020 Summer Olympic hosts Japan lead all Asian countries with three medals while China has yet to win a single medal and the South Koreans haven't won a medal in the last two competitive days.

    After Day 3, 17 different nations won at least one medal and nine of the 17 won at least one gold medal.

    Re: 2018 Winter Olympics Thread

    One of the futures of snowboarding is here in Pyeongchang's Bogwang Phoenix Park!

    The United States are one gold medal away from hitting the career Winter Olympics century mark thanks to Chloe Kim winning the Ladies' Halfpipe.

    That gold medal is #99 in the U.S.'s Winter Olympic history.

    Kim posted the highest score in the Ladies' Halfpipe with 98.25.

    China gets on the medal board in the 2018 Winter Olympics as Liu Jiayu took silver.

    And American Arielle Gold takes the bronze.

    S: Liu Jiayu, CHN

    I like curling, although one match is enough for one day. The players are wearing mics so you can hear their strategies. I don’t think any other Olympic event has that.
    Let the kids play.
