Winter Olympics appearances (overview)

The United States of America competed at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, from February 9 to 25, 2018.

The United States had its worst showing at a Winter Olympics since the 1998 Nagano Games, ranking out of the top three in both the gold and total medal count with 9 and 23 medals respectively, and finished fourth in both rankings.[2] However, there were some notable successes for the team. Jessica Diggins and Kikkan Randall won the first Olympic gold medal in cross-country skiing ever for the United States in the women's team sprint event.[3] Skip John Shuster led his team to the United States' first-ever gold medal in curling, winning the men's curling over Sweden.[4] The United States women's national ice hockey team also won the gold in the women's ice hockey tournament for the first time since the inauguration of the sport in 1998 over the four-time defending gold medalist Canada in an overtime penalty shootout.[5]

The United States earned medals in at least one event in 11 different sports, the most of any nation. These Games also witnessed the 100th Winter Olympic gold medal for the Americans, won by Shaun White.[6]

Men's tournament[edit]

United States men's national ice hockey team qualified by finishing 5th in the 2015 IIHF World Ranking.[18]

Following NHL's decision to pull out of the Olympics, the US team relied heavily on professionals from European leagues and the American Hockey League.[19] The team eventually lost in the quarterfinals; the Olympic Athletes from Russia (OAR) team, consisting primarily of SKA and CSKA players of a Russia-based KHL and featuring ex-NHL all-stars Pavel Datsyuk, Ilya Kovalchuk and Vyacheslav Voynov (all SKA), won the gold medal, defeating the German national team with a score of 4:3 OT in the final. Canada won a bronze medal over the Czech Republic.

Controversy[edit]

Potential withdrawal[edit]

In early December 2017, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, told Fox News that it was an "open question" whether the United States was going to participate in the games, citing security concerns in the region.[29] However, days later the White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, stated that the United States "looks forward to participating" and will attend.[30] With the announcement that North Korea will participate in the Winter Olympics, there was talk about a possible Olympic boycott by the United States, after the administration of President Donald Trump, who has been at loggerheads with Kim Jong-un, has issued mixed messages.[31] Concerns were assuaged when it was announced Vice President Mike Pence and wife Karen would attend the Opening Ceremony.[32]

Coin toss controversy[edit]

Luge athlete Erin Hamlin carried the flag during the opening ceremony. Following a vote, which ended up in a 4-4 tie between Hamlin and speed skater Shani Davis, the winner was decided via a coin toss in accordance with the rules. Davis eventually skipped the opening ceremony, citing his training schedule.[33][34]
