The momentum following Jessie Diggins’ cross-country bronze-medal win Tuesday has heightened the hopes of Team USA, who has yet to clinch a gold medal at the 2022 Games.
As we lean into Day 5 of the Games, spirits are high after Monday night’s record-breaking performance by USA’s Nathan Chen in the men’s figure skating short program.
A few other highlights for Team USA include Ryan Cochran-Siegle’s win of silver in Super-G, Joey Mantia’s sixth place score in the men’s 1500m speed skating and of course Diggins’ ode to history, after becoming the first American to win a medal in cross-country skiing individual sprint.
Here are all of the big events to look out for as we shift from Tuesday night to Wednesday morning at the 2022 Winter Games:
