From dangerous winds to wardrobe malfunctions, there wasn’t a dull moment in this year’s Winter Games.
Russia couldn’t compete after its doping scandal, but some of its athletes did. And it all took us a few days to figure out what OAR (Olympic Athletes from Russia) stood for.
North and South Korea came together during a rare moment of unity, walking together in Opening Ceremonies.
Some of the tricks on the slops were absolutely sick! So were some of the people. Between Games employees and athletes, over 200 people came down with Norovirus.
Old favorites like Shaun White relived gold. As well as some newcomers, like Chloe Kim. Then there was snowboarder Red Gerard, who no one saw coming!

Although she won bronze, Lindsey Vonn didn’t perform as well has she’d hope to in what’s expected to be her last Winter Games.
Today I won a bronze medal that felt like gold. It was an amazing day that I will never forget. Thank you to everyone who supported me and helped me get to this point. Love you all ❤️🙏🏻

Cincinnati and Indiana cheered on Nick Goepper as he took home silver in the freeski slopestyle competition.

All eyes were on figure skating super star Nathan Chen. The 18-year-old finally redeemed himself in his final performance, after two disappointing rounds.
These past two weeks have been the biggest emotional rollercoaster of my life. I began this competition with the two worst short programs of my competitive career. I couldn't believe what happened, and my confidence completely dissipated. If not for the hundreds of messages of support from all of you I never would've been able to bounce back and lay down the long I did here. Truly thank you all so much for the support and love. #WeGetUp
Figure skater Adam Rippon didn’t win medals, but he certainly did hearts! He was hired on as an Olympic commentator, before ultimately turning it down after he realized he’d have to move out of the village and couldn’t walk during Closing Ceremonies.
I am flattered that NBC wanted me to work as a correspondent for them here in PyeongChang. Doing this would require me to leave Team USA and move out of the Olympic Village. I don't want to do that so I had to declined the opportunity.

One of the biggest wins came Wednesday night, when the United States Women’s Hockey Team beat out Canada for gold! It’s their first gold in 20 years.
While the United States didn’t win the most medals, with 242 people, we did bring the most athletes to any Winter Games EVER!
Most importantly, we at home had a lot of fun watching it all happen!
