Alpine skiing-American Shiffrin ends 'rollercoaster' Games on high note

And with it went any chance the US had of redeeming itself in what is shaping up as a frustrating Olympics for an American team that had hopes of ending up near the top of the medal table.

The Winter Olympic Games are more exciting than their summer counterpart.

Germany's Francesco Friedrich (L) and Thorsten Margis celebrate next to Canada's Justin Kripps (2nd R) and Alexander Kopacz during the victory ceremony after both team won the gold medal. In addition to her downhill gold, she also won a bronze in the super-G at the Vancouver Games. However, silver medal favorite Kim Boutin of Canada won't let her win easy.

Here's a look at some of the events in which the US has a shot at the gold, silver or bronze. However, the controversy came in the way the athletes finished the race, as two of the skaters crossed the finish line at the same time, with the third being left behind.

Team USA will have three skiers compete in the halfpipe with Brita Sigourney leading the Americans. This year she competed and won gold in the giant slalom but finished just off the podium in her favored event, the slalom. "There have been many achievements in advancing inter-Korean talks", said President Moon, "and I hope this will lead to an improvement in inter-Korean relations".

Traditionally, the Winter Olympics have been exclusive to the cold-weather countries in the northern hemisphere and a lot of winter sports cater to a level of privileged athletes who can afford all of the equipment, lift passes, uniforms and ice time.

The team was hastily assembled after a landmark deal between the two Koreas, forcing the South's team to add a dozen North Koreans only two weeks ahead of the Olympics.

China took the silver medal while Canada claimed bronze behind them, and South Korea tailed off after a mid-race fall ended their chances of placing. His appearance in his fourth and final Olympics made for a climactic end to his journey of redemption.
