Series of slips keep Americans off the podium in Pyeongchang

You know the struggle is real when Mikaela Shiffrin isn’t medaling in her best event. After vomiting before her first slalom run, Shiffrin was unable to defend her slalom gold medal and missed the podium and a chance at history. Nathan Chen fell apart in the men’s short program, but the skating news wasn’t all bad. Vincent Zhou made Olympic history, and Adam Rippon dazzled on the ice — while inspiring off it. He revealed some details on his, well, revealing outfit. Later in the day, superstar Lindsey Vonn will attempt to be the oldest alpine skiing medalist at 33 years old. Keep up with how Team USA is faring AND get the entire medal count here.
