Winter Olympics Highlights: Chloe Kim Dominated Women’s Halfpipe, and Shaun White Kicked Off His Fourth Winter Games

A lot happened in Day Four of the Winter Olympics in South Korea   Some of the events are airing in primetime tonight, and we don’t want to spoil anything.  But here are four updates from earlier . . .

1.  U.S. snowboarder Chloe Kim crushed everyone in the women’s halfpipe to win Gold last night.

Her first run earned her a 93.75, and no one came close to beating it.  But even though she’d already won Gold, she still did her final run . . . and got a 98.25.  Fellow American Arielle Gold ended up winning the Bronze.

 

2.  Shaun White kicked off his fourth Olympics in the men’s halfpipe qualifying round last night, and made it into the finals with the top qualifying score on both runs.  He qualified with a 93.25, then blew everyone away with a 98.50 on his second run.

The men’s halfpipe finals will air live in primetime tonight.

3.  U.S. speedskater Brittany Bowe just missed out on a medal, finishing 5th in the women’s 1,500 meter Long Track event.  That’s our best finish for any Long Track event in the last eight years.  She missed the Bronze by about 1.2 seconds.

(Brittany still has three more events coming up.  She’ll compete in the 1,000 meter race today, then the 500m on Sunday, and the Team Pursuit event on Monday.)

4.  As of midnight last night, Norway was still leading the overall medal count with 9 medals.  The U.S. was in 5th place with 6 medals, including 3 Gold.  (You can check out the updated medal count at NBCOlympics.com/medals.)
