It’s been 24 years since the United States has gone this long without winning a gold medal at the Winter Olympics. Three days in, and still no top-of-the-podium finishes for Team USA in Beijing.
Julia Marino clinched the silver in slopestyle snowboarding, winning the U.S. their first medal of the 2022 Winter Olympics over the weekend.
Skier Jaelin Kauf and figure skaters Madison Chock and Evan Bates helped secure additional silver medals for Team USA but as of Monday night those three victories remain America’s only tallies on the medal count at the 2022 Olympics.
Monday night’s figure skating competition featuring Nathan Chen is a marquee TV event, but presents no possible medal scenario for the Americans.
The gold drought could end for Team USA on the slopes – at either the women’s freeski big air or the men’s alpine skiing super-G final.
Here are all of the big events to look out for as we shift from Monday night to Tuesday morning at the 2022 Winter Games:
