CURLING/ Japan women claim final playoff spot despite loss

"The athlete has admitted the anti-doping rule violation; he is disqualified from the mixed doubles curling event", the Court of Arbitration for Sport said in a statement.Krushelnitsky's case comes as the International Olympic Committee ponders whether to lift Russia's suspension in time to fly their flag at Sunday's closing ceremony.

The United States also picked up a silver medal in women's big air snowboarding, thanks to Jamie Anderson's combined score of 177.25 after two runs.

The U.S. has 21 medals so far in and women have claimed 14 of them - 12 on their own, two others on mixed teams in figure skating.

"People told me why do I let my son compete in a unsafe sport", said Cho Young-hee, mother of skeleton slider Yun, the first Asian to claim an Olympic gold medal in sliding sports.

It is worth noting though that even if Team U.S.A. manages to hit that number, the final count will still fall short of the team's efforts in 2014 when the medal total sat at 28. (See you there, Nathan Chen.) Until then, we'll just have to make do with Olympians' Instagrams and NBC's attempts to keep up with Adam Rippon's RuPaul's Drag Race references - so you know what, it could be worse. So he's Team USA all the way.

Meanwhile, the Russian athletes are still sitting at zero in the gold medals column entering Thursday.

For example, USA men's figure skater Adam Rippon hasn't hesitated to share his feelings on Vice President Mike Pence. Dajing, who won gold in the men's 500m, admitted his team wanted to finish top of the podium but had done well, and that they could look ahead to Beijing 2022 with great confidence.

Kim Boutin of Canada took silver for her third medal of the games. "Fortunately, I didn't have too many cases where I had to get involved", he said.

Rounding off the US medal count for now were a couple of silver medals from Chris Mazder in men's singles luge and John-Henry Krueger in the men's 1000m short track speed skating event.

"I missed four last shots to win three games early and essentially took us out of the competition", he said.

"I didn't think I was going to be here at these Olympics because after Sochi I thought I was going to retire", Fontana said. (The U.S. women finished last for the second time in a row). We still have curling, speed skating, figure skating, skeleton, cross country skiing, ski jump and team bobsled just to name a few.

Lindsey Vonn said she "left it all on the line" as she had to settle for bronze in downhill in what is likely to be her final Olympics.

Every two years, countless journalists from across the globe flock to one location to cover the Olympics.
