Jamie Anderson, the American out of Lake Tahoe, won the Ladies' Slopestyle snowboard with a 95.5 in her second run. Enni Rukajarvi (Finland) received the silver at 92.50, and Jenny Jones of Bristol, Great Britain received the bronze with an 87.25 score.

In the Men's Skiathalon, a combination of skiing 15 kilometers freestyle and 15 kilometers classic, the Swiss Dario Cologna received the gold medal with his 1:08.15.4 time. Marcus Hellner of Sweden got the bronze at 1:08.14.8 (an agonizing four tenths of a second behind Cologna). Norwegian Martin Johnsrud Sundby added to his country's medals with a 1:08:16.8 time, just barely edging out homeland hero Maxim Vylegzhanin of Udmurtia, Russia's medal hopes by a tenth of a second.

Men's Downhill Alpine Skiing, one of the blueblood events of the Games, was swept by the blueblood countries. Mattias Mayer of Austria won the gold with a 2:06.23 time, and Christof Innerhofer of Italy got the silver with a 2:06.29 time, missing the gold by six hundredths of a second. Kjietil Jansrud added to Norway's medal count with a bronze thanks to his 2:06.33 time.

The Netherlands dominated indoor with a 1-2-3 finish in the 5000m speed skating, including an Olympic record by Sven Kramer who won gold in the 2010 Vancouver games in the same event.

Norway diversified its medal tally across two sports, taking home gold and bronze in Ladies' Skiathlon while Staale Sandbrech won silver in the Men's Slopestyle event.
