Expected Medal Count For USA Expected To Be Down From Previous Games

SORRY ABOUT THATTeam Canada defenceman Jocelyne Larocque has apologized for what she called an emotional reaction following her team's shootout loss to the U.S.in Thursday's gold medal hockey game.

But this time, the commentary just might be worth the wait, since NBC announced on Wednesday that their glam figure skating team of Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir will be helming the network's primetime coverage.

"The women had some unfortunate injuries as well, with Jackie Wiles going down right before the games. But hats off to our ladies for being so strong and determined and showing the world what they're made of".

Though there are only a few more days left in the event, the USA squad has now managed to bust through the 20-medal barrier.

The 21-year-old wunderkind won his third gold medal of the Pyeongchang Olympics in the men's team sprint, skiing with Martin Johnsrud Sundby to give Norway a 13th medal in cross-country events at this year's games.

"The great thing about this time around is that we do have Chinese [synchronized] teams, so we're [in a ] better [position] than we were in Korea. and it's not just us", Tanger says. "In fact, the nation loves it".
