Women's bobsled began with the first two runs of the brand-new monobob event, and Kaillie Humphries and Elana Meyers Taylor of the United States are both gold-medal contenders. Elsewhere, the U.S. men's hockey team was back in action after its win over Canada, and Erin Jackson delivered in the 500m speed skating event. Here are the updates from throughout the night...

Erin Jackson delivers the goods

Erin Jackson might've needed Brittany Bowe to travel to the Olympics, but everyone already knew she could fly.

Jackson won gold in the women's speed skating 500m, which isn't a terrible surprise given her terrific track record. But she came close to missing out on the 2022 Winter Olympics altogether when she lost an edge and wobbled during U.S. Olympic Trials.

Her teammate and longtime friend Bowe won the distance at Olympic Trials and gave up her spot so Jackson could qualify for the 2022 Winter Games. Bowe's primary distances are the 1000m and 1500m, and she felt Jackson was the team's best chance to win gold.

The U.S. gained another qualifying spot since Olympic Trials, and Bowe finished 16th with a time of 38.04 on Sunday. 

Jackson, the 29-year-old from Ocala, Florida, skated a 37.04 time in the 14th pairing to edge silver medalist Miho Takagi of Japan, who skated a 37.12. Angelina Golikova of the ROC ended third for the bronze. 

Results: Women's 500m

🥇 Erin Jackson (USA)

🥈 Miho Takagi (JPN)

🥉 Angelina Golikova (ROC)

Kaillie Humphries leads midway though monobob's debut

The brand-new women's monobob event got underway with the first two (out of four) heats, and Kaillie Humphries currently holds the lead.

Humphries, a three-time bobsled medalist for Canada who switched to the United States during the current Olympic cycle, had the day's two fastest times through the course and has built a lead of more than a full second over the rest of the field.

Canadian Christine de Bruin (+1.04 seconds) and German Laura Nolte (+1.22) round out the rest of the top three right now. Humphries' U.S. teammate Elana Meyers Taylor, the world No. 1, remains in contention but sits in fourth place despite consistently getting the best start times in the field.

This marks the Olympic debut of women's monobob. The competition will wrap up tomorrow with the final two heats, and medals will be awarded based on athletes' cumulative times from all four heats

Swiss star Marco Odermatt wins giant slalom in snowy conditions

The men’s giant slalom was anything but normal. There were 33 crashes in a race that normally would never see a number close to that during a single event. However, the snow wreaked havoc on the course, making for poor visibility and actual snowy hills (after the racers had adjusted to the icier man-made snow). When Swiss skier Marco Odermatt stepped to starting gate of his final run, it was anything but a given that he’d capture the gold he was favorited to win.

After several skiers crashed before him, Odermatt proved why he was expected to win. He had one of the cleanest second runs of the day and crossed the finish line at 1:06.42, for a combined time of 2:09.35. It was Odermatt’s first Olympic medal in his Olympic debut.

Unfortunately, his clean run knocked American River Radamus off the podium. In his Olympic debut, Radamus finished just 0.26 seconds behind bronze medalist Mathieu Faivre.

Slovenia’s Zan Kranjec finished second for his first Olympic medal at his third Olympics. Kranjec was fourth in the event in 2018.

American Tommy Ford finished a respectable 12th place in his first race back since a major crash in January 2021. Countrymen Ryan Cochran-Siegle and Luke Winters skied out of the first race.

Results: Men's Giant Slalom

🥇 Marco Odermatt (SUI)

🥈 Zan Kranjec (SLO)

🥉 Mathieu Faivre (FRA)

Quentin Fillon Maillet wins men’s 12.5km pursuit

On a day where weather affected multiple races, the men’s 12.5km pursuit was no different. France’s Quentin Fillon Maillet won the race with a time of 39:07.5. He was only one of two biathletes to finish with no misses (20/20) in the shooting portion. The win is his fourth medal at the 2022 Winter Games (two gold, two silver). He is one of a couple athletes (along with Norway's Marte Olsbu Roeiseland) who have the potential to win six medals at these Olympics, which would be a record for the Winter Games.

Traej Boe won the silver medal behind Fillon Maillet. It comes a day after winning his first Olympic medal in an individual event. His brother, Johannes Thingnes Boe finished 5th in the event, and is no longer in contention to win six medals at the 2022 Winter Games.

ROC’s Eduard Latypov took home the bronze medal, finishing 35.3 seconds after Fillon Malliet.

American Jake Brown finished 40th, while teammate Sean Doherty finished 43rd. With their placement, neither qualified for the mass start on Friday.

Results: Men’s 12.5km Pursuit

🥇 Quentin Fillon Maillet (FRA)

🥈 Traej Boe (NOR)

🥉 Eduard Latypov (ROC)

Marte Olsbu Roeisland continues historic Olympics

Marte Olsbu Roeisland won the women’s 10k pursuit with a time of 34:46.9 and only one missed shot. The Norwegian athlete is the first woman to win four biathlon medals at a single Olympic Games. She stays on track to be the first winter Olympian in any sport to win six medals in a single Games. She also became the first athlete to win four medals at the 2022 Winter Games (three gold and one bronze).

The biathlete also is the third competitor to win the sprint and pursuit events at the same Olympics. She won the 10km pursuit by 1:36.5, which is the largest margin of victory in a women’s individual biathlon race at the Olympics.

Fellow Norwegian, Tiril Eckhoff took home the bronze after starting in 11th. It is her seventh career medal and second of these Games. She is now tied as the second-most decorated female Olympic biathlete.

Sweden’s Elvira Oeberg won her second silver medal of the Games. Oeberg and Eckhoff struggled more with the wintery conditions, as both missed three shots.

Results: Women's 10k Pursuit

🥇 Marte Olsbu Roeisland (NOR)

🥈 Elvira Oeberg (SWE)

🥉 Tiril Eckhoff (NOR)

Led by Alexander Bolshunov, the ROC edged out Norway in the men’s 4x10km relay with a time of 1:54:50.7. It is Bolshunov’s seventh career Olympic medal (2 gold, 4 silver, 1 bronze). At 25, he is the youngest athlete in any sport to win at least seven medals at the Winter Games. He has also won a medal in all seven of his career Olympic starts.

Norway’s Johannes Hosflot Klaebo continued his strong Olympic showing as part of Team Norway. The silver is his third medal of the Games. Klaebo and Bolshunov can tie the record of five Olympic medals won at a single Games.

France rounded out the podium, taking home the bronze medal. The U.S. team of Luke Jager, Scott Patterson, Gus Schumacher, and Kevin Bolger finished 9th.

Too many mistakes for U.S. women’s curling team

The U.S. fell to the defending gold medalists Sweden, in a 10-4 loss. Team USA actually had a 3-2 lead going into the fifth end. Then the Swedes took over.

Skip Tabitha Peterson tried for a double takeout on the U.S.’ final throw of the eighth, but overcurled the throw, to get just one takeout and set up an easy draw for two for Sweden’s Anna Hasselborg. That gave Sweden a 7-4 lead going into the ninth.

Hasselborg got a takeout of the U.S.’ only stone on Sweden’s final throw to lie four in the ninth. The U.S. had to draw to the button for one, but overthrew the hammer, which allowed Sweden to steal three and go up by six.

The U.S. conceded the final end. It was the second consecutive loss for Team USA. They next face Korea at 8:05 p.m. ET on Sunday.
