Female athletes’ top 10 moments at the 2018 Winter Games include the U.S. women’s huge hockey and cross-country skiing wins.
Now these are some golden girls.
The 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang has been one for the record books with North and South Korea coming together as one unified team, as well as figure skater Adam Rippon and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy coming out as the first two openly gay U.S. athletes to compete in the Games.
But who run the world? Girls, as for the first time in 20 years, Team USA’s women won more medals overall than the American men did, even though there were more men on the team, scoring 12 of our nation’s 23 medals in these Games (not including the two that were taken in coed events, including ice dancing and team figure skating.) And five of the nine U.S. gold medals were cinched by fierce females in record-breaking feats — just a handful of the many barriers that badass women across the globe have broken for their countries over the past two weeks.
