As we slide into Day 6 of the Games, gaiety soars, following Wednesday morning’s performance by Lindsey Jacobellis in snowboard cross, clinching the USA its first gold medal of the 2022 Games.
We felt for Mikaela Shiffrin when she got eliminated from the women’s slalom, but podium hopes remain optimistic, following Chloe Kim and Shaun White’s halfpipe performances Tuesday night.
Team USA’s Colby Stevenson added to our total medal count, after securing silver in freeski big air.
Here are all of the big events to look out for as we shift from Wednesday night to Thursday morning at the 2022 Winter Games:
