No medal for Lindsey Vonn in Olympic super-G

His loyal fans showered the ice with Winnie the Pooh after he finished his program.

An unfortunate tumble during practice in November left Hanyu nursing ligament damage and put his Olympic participation under serious threat. "I did all the right stuff going into it; it should have been different, but stuff happens. I understand that if I do my job, I can get a good result".

Reportedly Hanyu intends to donate them to children in Pyeongchang and Gangneung. As on other jumps performed, there are variations of takeoff and landing points on his skates, some a much higher degree of difficulty than others. Fernandez scored 107.58 points.

Fernandez and Hanyu train together under coach Brian Orser, a two-time Olympic silver medalist himself. On this occasion, Chen's rough preliminary patch was doubly unsettling given his disastrous showing in his Olympic debut the previous week, proving an uncharacteristic bundle of nerves in the team event as he shortchanged one quad and fell on a triple Axel. "No skater wants this victory more than me", assured the lanky Japanese 23 years old, barely off the plane in the beginning of the week.

Hanyu, a two-time world champion, finished almost 11 points overall ahead of compatriot Shoma Uno.

The 27-year-old landed two quads in the team competition but otherwise struggled, although thanks to team Canada he has finally won Olympic gold. Hanyu's countryman Shoma Uno was third and was followed by China's Jin Boyang. He finished 17th with 82.27 points.

While Nathan is a fave to medal at the men's events, which start tonight, he says he's already realized his dreams of being at the Olympics. "I'm not really sure exactly what to do but just recover and try to prepare myself best for the free".

The Americans face the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation on Saturday.

Hanyu also made history, becoming the first male figure skater to repeat as the champion since 1952, when Dick Button accomplished the feat. Adam Rippon placed seventh (87.95); Vincent Zhou 12th (84.53).

"I no longer felt like I was striving for that first-place spot", Chen said.

After a disappointing loss against Slovenia in the opening game, the US men's hockey team was able to beat Slovakia 2-1. "Lovely edging in and out", tweeted the 88-year-old Button.

"Right now the name of the game is as many quads as possible".

Hanyu graciously executed all his jumps and spins with exceptional technique and grace, earning him first place and 111.68 points - just 1.04 away from his personal best score and world record.

"Having all of my family, and all of my friends, and thousands of supporters here to watch me skate is so important to me", Zhou said.
