Jessie Diggins has been named the us flag bearer after an incredibly gutsy performance to take home the country's first-ever gold medal in Cross-Country.

"I'm sorry that I could not bring the athletes today, because I'm anxious there will be too much pressure and burden on them", Kim told Time Magazine last week.

The race for gold at the 2018 Winter Olympics isn't cooling down by any means.

Then we can all take a breath, wait for the upcoming Paralympic Winter Games scheduled to start on March 9, and then hit the pause button again on Winter Olympic excitement until the athletes of the world convene at Beijing in 2022.

René Bourque (17), of Canada reacts after the men's hockey team's semifinal loss to Germany on Friday. The Hungarians bided their time, skating within themselves and letting China and Canada set the pace in the 45-lap race before putting on a late surge that secured the gold medal. The team finished second-to-last four years ago in Sochi, and dead last four years prior in Vancouver.

Do the Olympics lead to joy or heartbreak?

It even boasts Marit Bjorgen, the most decorated athlete in Winter Olympic history.

On Monday, February 12, the 24-year-old figure skater from California became the first US woman to ever land a triple axel at the Olympics, and the third woman overall to do so, during her performance in the women's free skating portion of the team competition. This time, a bronze medal for speed skating.

It wasn't in the plan. The victory earns them a spot in Saturday's gold medal game after winning three straight competitions against three of their toughest opponents. That's preposterous. But Osmond believes she made it here because of a 2014 misstep. From snowboarder Red Gerard unexpectedly taking home Team USA's first gold to Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue capping off a near-perfect week of ice dancing, here are a few of the Games' most memorable-and GIF-able-moments of triumph. So, no Canadian dominance. Leading up to the ceremony, there will be four final events to catch on February 25, including men's bobsledding, women's cross-country skiing, women's curling and men's hockey.
