PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — Ester Ledecka of the Czech Republic has made history at the Olympics by winning gold medals in two sports.

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — It's been a record-setting day at the Olympics for Norway, which took bronze in the new Alpine skiing team event. That's Norway's 38th medal in Pyeongchang, a Winter Olympics record.

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — It's not gold, but at least Canada is going home with a medal in men's hockey. The Canadians won the bronze medal by beating the Czech Republic 6-4. Gold and silver will be determined later when Germany plays the Russians.
