  • Kelowna skier Kesley Serwa adds to Canada's gold medals — OLYMPIC ROUNDUP

Americans Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, twin sister Monique Lamoureux-Morando, Hilary Knight, Meghan Duggan, Gigi Marvin and Kacey Bellamy have a luxury their predecessors lacked after finally capturing the nation's first Olympic gold in women's hockey in two decades. They achieved it by setting world records and head to retirement with a record five Olympic medals.

At least not because of money.

The underdog against Sweden in the gold-medal game - and really, throughout the Games after nearly being eliminated and pushing back to beat defending gold medalist Team Canada twice to get to the final - the score was tied at five in the eighth end. Kirill Kaprizov jumped in to screen Francouz on Gusev's goal that was upheld after a goaltender interference challenge.

"They came out ready to play", Canada forward Rob Klinkhammer said.

Team USA eventually won its first Olympic gold medal, 10-7, stunning the Olympics as the surprise winner.

Kelsey Serwa of Kelowna takes home the gold in women's ski cross for third straight Games.

Beating Canada and Sweden en route to gold leaves no doubt Team USA have been worthy winners of this event. They're reveling in this victory, so much that Duggan said they'll decide whether to go to the White House if invited when that time comes. Shuster was part of the other one, too, as the lead thrower on Pete Fenson's bronze-winning team in Turin in 2006. "Their margin for error was incredibly small". "She was crying on the phone".

"Just feeling empty, and disappointed we couldn't play a better game", Edin said. With Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump, watching from the stands, the two sides swapped the lead over the next couple of ends.

"We obviously let a big one get away from us", Klinkhammer said. They finished 11th in Vancouver, and they had to qualify for this tournament.

Gold: Aliona Savchenko and Bruno Massot, Germany - After Massot messed up in the short program, the veteran Savchenko gave him an unspoken scolding with her eyes.

"We've played our best when our backs were up against the wall", Tyler George said. Like her sister, she is married.

The result meant more Olympic disappointment for Niklas Edin who had skipped Sweden to world championship titles in 2013 and 2015 and a bronze at the Sochi Olympics but could not grab the one medal to elude him. "And I think we deserve to be in the final".
