Olympics Day 15 Recap: Team Canada
🎿 Freestyle skiing: Canada was seeing double in last night’s women’s freeski halfpipe final, with defending Olympic champion Cassie Sharpe and Rachael Karker claiming silver and bronze, respectively, behind none other than 18-year-old phenom Eileen Gu, who nabbed her third medal of the Games.
🥌 Curling: Adding some hardware to his gold medal from the 2006 (!!!) Turin Olympics, the skip from St. John’s, Newfoundland, knocked out Team USA 8–5 for the bronze early this morning. Truly the best ever.
💨 Speed skating: After missing the men’s 500m podium by just 0.03 seconds, Quebec’s Laurent Dubreuil glided to his first Olympic medal, a silver in the 1,000m this morning. Don’t sleep on this “sk8er boi.”
⛸ Figure skating: Though this morning’s pairs short program was, ahem, not great for both Kirsten Moore-Towers & Michael Marinaro and Vanessa James & Eric Radford, both teams have advanced to tomorrow’s 6 a.m. ET free program where they’ll have a chance to pick up their scores.
