A dance for the ages: Team USA's Day 10 recap
Day 10 at the Sochi Games featured an Olympic first and an end to a 62-year drought for the U.S. Olympic Team. See how ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White and bobsledders Steven Holcomb and Steve Langton made their mark, and how other Americans fared on Monday.
The second week of the 2014 Olympics kicked off with the mountain cluster of venues enveloped in thick fog, which caused the postponement of the men's snowboard cross event and a biathlon race.

Figure skating: Ice dance free program
Ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White, silver medalists in Vancouver and American figure skating’s best hope for a gold medal, more than lived up to expectations by breaking the world record for free program score and defeating their rivals and defending Olympic champions, Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
Performing like they were already champions to "Scheherazade", Davis and White earned a free skate score of 116.63 and total of 195.52, and became the first American ice dancing duo to win an Olympic gold medal.
Virtue and Moir, who share a coach with Davis and White, took home a silver, while the host country won another figure skating medal, with Elena Ilinykh and Nikita Katsalapov.
The other two American teams, both making their Olympic debut, landed in the top 10. Madison Chock and Evans Bates finished in eighth and Alex and Maia Shibutani were one spot behind them in ninth.

Bobsled: Men's 2-man
Steven Holcomb drove the American 2-man sled into history on Monday, winning the first Olympic medal in the 2-man for the U.S. in 62 years. The Park City, Utah native teamed with Steve Langton of Melrose, Mass. to win bronze. Holcomb will have a chance to add to his two career Olympic medals this weekend when he attempts to defend the 4-man title from 2010.
The 2-man gold went to the host country, with 39-year-old Aleksandr Zubkov driving the Russian sled to an impressive margin of victory of 0.66 seconds over the Swiss team which took silver.

Hockey: Women's semifinals
The U.S. women’s hockey team advanced to the gold medal game after taking a 6-1 victory over Sweden. Alex Carpenter and Kacey Ballamy scored within two minutes of the start of the first period, and Amanda Kessel gave the U.S. a 3-0 lead before Sweden even got off its first shot. Megan Bozek, Kendall Coyne and Brianna Decker each had a goal and two assists and Jessie Vetter only needed to make 8 saves to lead the team to victory. The United States out shot Sweden by a staggering 70-9.
Canada defeated Switzerland 3-1 in the second semifinal game of the day, which sets up a rematch of the 2010 finals. Canada brought home the gold in 2010, so the U.S. will be looking to avenge that loss in the showdown between the two rivals on Thursday at 12pm ET.

Freestyle skiing: Men's aerials
Anton Kushnir is the new Olympic champion in men's freestyle skiing aerials, giving Belarus back-to-back gold medals in the event. Kushnir's win came three nights after fellow compatriot Alla Tsuper won the gold in the women’s event. Kushnir earned himself 134.5 points on his final run, beating out runner-up Davis Morris of Australia by more than 24 points. The bronze medal was awarded to Jia Zongyang of China.
Mac Bohonnon, who was competing in his first Olympic Games, was the only American to qualify for the final round. The 18-year-old Connecticut native narrowly missed the super-final after finishing fifth, one spot short of qualifying, in final number two. He did, however, fare better than 2010 Vancouver gold medalist Alexei Grishin, who failed to advance past the qualifying round.
