Ice Hockey: Russia v Germany for gold, who would have thought?

REUTERS

I was shocked to learn that the swimmer Michael Phelps, who won 23 Olympic gold medals in his career, suffered from depression and thoughts of suicide after he retired.

Led by four-time Olympian John Shuster, 35, of Superior, Wisconsin, the U.S.A. won its first-ever gold medal in curling beating Sweden 10-7.

The sausage references were in deference to Germany, which beat Canada on Friday and would most assuredly not be competing for gold in an Olympics featuring NHL players.

With two days of Olympic competition left to go Canada is guaranteed its highest medal count in history.

The American men have won the Olympic gold medal in curling in a decisive upset of Sweden.

The two didn't cry in front of reporters in the mixed zone, but when they saw their parents they burst into tears.

After three back-and-forth ends in the final, the Swedes squandered a point in the fourth despite having the last-rock advantage known as the hammer. "We have to do the best that we can do and promote the game of hockey, and yesterday the German-Canada game was something very unique and special". Kevin Poulin was starting in net because No. 1 goalie Ben Scrivens injured his shoulder/collarbone area in a collision in the quarterfinal against Finland, and he allowed goals scored by Brooks Macek, Matthias Plachta, Frank Mauer and Patrick Hager on 15 shots.

Last year, Cirque held a research and development workshop bringing in athletes from these sports and asking them to try Cirque equipment using their specific acrobatic technique. Edin, on the other hand, started fantastic, shooting 91 percent in the first three ends, but finished with just a 75 percent shot success rate.

Sweden, skipped by Niklas Edin, proved it was one of the top teams in the Olympic field early in round robin play.

Sweden took the silver medal.

They have been on a tear since dropping their first game of the Olympics to Slovakia, outscoring their next four opponents 21-3.

The USOC's most recent federal tax returns listed net assets of $250 million.

The women's hockey record wasn't the only Canadian gold streak broken in Pyeongchang.

It's not the best amateurs, and it's not the best professionals.

Steinbrenner cracked heads as only he could and brought a sense of accountability to the USOC, restructuring funding mechanisms to a performance-based model in terms of how it allocates money to its national governing bodies and in turn how the NGBs allocate money to individual athletes.

When you lose a sporting event, it may be the easy way out to trivialize the entire event. "Their margin for error got really small", Shuster said in the news conference with teammates team Tyler George, Matt Hamilton, John Landsteiner and alternate Joe Polo.

" Its a big frustration I think for everybody in Canada the expectation for hockey in Canada is always so high", said Peter Swan.

"You might not be at your peak level every night like when you are doing the Olympics or a world championships but you have to find a way to sustain an effort".

"I want to help our athletes achieve everything they're capable of", Ashley said. They were shut out of the medals in moguls skiing for a second straight Games after being on the podium at five of the previous six. "They know what it feels like to be on the other side". The Court of Arbitration for Sport on Saturday said Nadezhda Sergeeva has accepted a provisional suspension but reserved her right "to seek the elimination or reduction" of her expected ban from competition.

From there, Sweden was playing catch-up.

It was the first 5-point end the U.S. has had in these Olympics. Police said all three were intoxicated when they were stopped.
