We already miss watching the Winter Olympic Games every night. Today's #WCW are all of the women who lived their dreams in PyeongChang! All of the women who competed (no matter what country they're competing) are inspiring us to #liveboldy! We're over the top proud of the USA women in particular, who for the first time in 20 years out medaled their male counterparts!
Mirai Nagasu, the first American woman to land a triple axel at the Olympics. She is as graceful as she's strong.
17-year old Chloe Kim made a gold medal performance in the women's snowboarding halfpipe competition. She is the youngest gold medalist in that event and the first female to land consecutive 1080s in the halfpipe at the Olympics.
She even scored a whopping 98.25, which was 8.5 points more than the silver medalist.
Jessica Diggins and Kikkan Randall win the first American gold medal in the women's team spring freestyle cross-country skiing final. Not only is this America's first gold medal in this race, but the first medal of any kind in women's cross -country.
Not only were they the most spirited with glittered up face paint, but their passion and spunk shine brighter than the glitter.
There was a lot of hype and talk of redemption for the US Women's Hockey team, and the final gold medal match against rivals Canada (four-time defending Olympic champions) did not disappoint.
With an exciting-nail-biter-over-time-shoot-out, they won gold 3-2.
We may actually love them more for fighting USA Hockey for better pay and work conditions...which they did receive pretty good pay raises. These women are definitely changing the game for all of us.
Heather Bergsma, Brittany Bowe, Mia Mangenello, and Carlijn Schoutens were the only medalists for the US in speedskating. They took home the bronze in the team pursuit event. They won the first women's speed skating medal for the US in 16 years, beating the Canadians by only 0.45 seconds. They skated their hearts out and made us proud.
Elana Meyers Taylor and Lauren Gibbs had a silver medal performance in the two-woman bobsled, marking the fifth time in as many winter gams the US has medaled in this event. A second US team piloted by Jamie Greubel Poser finished fifth. The US Women's bobsled team is a celebration of women athletes of all shapes, sizes, and color.
Jamie Anderson became the first female snowboarder to take home two medals from one winter games. She took home gold in the slopestyle finals. Three days later in a new event, Jamie landed a front-side 1080, one of the sport's toughest maneuvers, giving her enough points for a silver medal behind Austria. Jamie joins Shawn White and Kelly Clark as the only athletes to take home three Olympic medals in snowboarding.
Mikaela Shiffrin was the big medal winner from our home state of Colorado, She won gold in the giant slalom and won a silver medal in the alpine combined. She's 22 now, and at 18 she became the youngest Olympic slalom gold meldalist.
Lindsey Vonn, came back from injury, won bronze in the women's downhill skiing competition. Not only is she a four-time Olympian and World Champion, but at 33 she is the oldest female Alpine skiing medalist in Olympic history.
Needless to say, we are very inspired and in awe of all the talent, hard work and passion we witnessed at the winter games this year.
Go out and live your BOLD. #liveboldly
