If you missed last night's Olympic coverage you missed a whole lot. It was totally awesome! We won 6 medals: 3 gold, 1 silver, and 2 bronze.
Shaun White owns the sport of snowboarding. He was in first place going into the second run and he won without his second run. However, he decided to do the run anyway and just have fun. He had perfected a totally new trick and it nailed it last night. His teammate won bronze.
Lindsey Vonn is one of those feel-good, redemption stories. Last winter Olympics, she was the heavy favorite and had a slip up and finished with the silver. This time going into the games, she suffered a shin injury and was unsure about how she would compete. Her teammate Julia Mancuso was holding the lead going into the final skiiers. Several women had violent crashes going down this hill and Lindsey had to ski it with an injury. She rocked the hill and won the gold. She was so emotional and humbled by the win. Shani Davis won the gold in speed skating and his teammate won the bronze. These are some fast skaters. These athletes and more are totally inspiring. One of the cross country female skiiers from another country fell off the course yesterday into a ravine, landed on a rock on her back, went for x-rays, and managed to compete in the final. Unfortunately she did not win the gold, but she competed through the pain.
