There weren't a ton of medals up for grabs on Sunday, but Team USA did well for itself in men's skiing as Andrew Weibrecht and Bode Miller took home the silver and bronze medal, respectively, in the Super-G.

The United States, now with 16 medals, continues to trail the Netherlands (17) in the overall medal count, but this final week in Sochi should provide the Americans with plenty of opportunities to bring home some hardware.

Here is a recap of what went down on Sunday.


As mentioned above, Weibrecht and Miller took home medals in the Super-G. Miller, who has really struggled in Sochi, actually tied with Jan Hudec of Canada for third place with a time of 1:18.67. Kjetil Jansrud of Norway won gold, beating Weibrecht by three-tenths of a second.


Sweden came out on top of the men's 4x10km relay as it finished in 1:28.42. That was 27 seconds better than the hometown Russians, who took home silver. France crossed the finish line right behind Russia, earning bronze.

Team USA did not fare well in this one after a poor start. The Americans were in second-to-last place after the first leg, and while they picked the pace up a bit down the stretch, the damage was already done. They finished in 11th place overall, more than four minutes behind the medal winners.


The United States has really struggled recently in curling, and that continued on Sunday as both the men's and women's teams fell to Canada. The men lost 8-6, while the women kept it closer than expected in a 7-6 defeat. In the late session, the men fell to Sweden, 6-4, to just about end their chances in Sochi.

Figure Skating

The American team of Meryl Davis and Charlie White got off to a great start with the highest qualifying score of the day. You can read more on their record-setting day here. Two other teams from the United States -- Madison Chock and Evan Bates, and Maia and Alex Shibutani -- also qualified.


Fresh off a thrilling victory over Russia, Team USA continued rolling with a 5-1 victory over Slovenia. Phil Kessel, who plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs, scored 64 seconds into the first period and then scored again a couple minutes later. Kessel then scored again midway through the second period to earn the hat trick. Ryan McDonagh added another goal a minute later, and Blues captain David Backes scored the fifth goal in the third period.

In other action, Drew Doughty's two goals lifted Canada over Finland in overtime and the Russians survived a scare from Slovakia.


Eva Samkova of the Czech Republic won gold in the women's snowboard cross finals. Dominique Maltais of Canada won silver, while Chloe Trespeuch of France won bronze. American snowboarder Faye Gulini finished in fourth place and just missed bringing a medal home.

Speed Skating

The Netherlands cleaned up in the women's 1500m with three medals. Jorien ter Mors won gold, while Ireen Wust got silver and Lotte van Beek earned bronze. Those three medals helped push the Dutch to the top of the medal count.
