Seventeen-year-old snowboarder Chloe Kim won the gold medal in the women's halfpipe for Team USA. Her score on the first lap guaranteed her the medal, but she still landed an extremely difficult combination on her final lap: back-to-back 1080s.

Also, in figure skating, Mirai Nagasu becomes the first American to complete a triple axel at the Olympics and Adam Rippon has become "America's Sweetheart."
