In the Olympics, the USA picked up their 100th medal, winning with who else but Shaun White. He won at the finish with a score of a 97.75. This was enough to beat Hirano Ayumu. Ayumu had a score of 95.25 on his second run which, at that point, put him in the lead but Shaun White took it back.
More with the Olympics the USA lost to Slovenia in their first round robin game. They lost 3-2 in OT. This isn’t as bad as you think because Russia also lost. They lost 3-2, and it was to Slovakia. With a little help from SB Nation I found out that the USA was spreading time between veterans and youngsters. Why in the world would you do this? This is the Olympics people! This isn’t some scrimmage. You had plenty of time for that.
Thanks for all of your responses! In the polls, the favorite sport of the Winter Olympics was skating but skiiing was one behind.
