Team USA collected three more medals yesterday, 2.13.18, in the Men’s and Women’s Snowboarding Halfpipe. Seventeen-year-old Chloe Kim won gold after scoring an almost-perfect 98.25, while Arielle Gold rocketed into the bronze in her third run. Shawn White lived up to reputation with yet another gold medal win, scoring a 97.75 in his final run. His gold medal is also the 100th gold medal for the US in Winter Olympics’ history; White fell to his knees after he finished in an emotional milestone win.
