Winter Olympics 2018: What to watch Saturday, Feb

The U.S. has won two early medals at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, tying them with the Czech Republic for fifth place in the medal standings in Day 3.

The United States and Canada also both medaled in the team figure skating event, only this time it was the Canadians capturing gold while the Americans settled for bronze behind the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation. Their only other medal going into Sunday was a silver, won in luge. The figure skating team event ended with the United States in third, adding a bronze medal to their total. The biggest performance of the night was a historic one from women's figure skater Mirai Nagusa. Germany have the most gold medals, with three, and also have a bronze. Canada is just above the United States with three silvers and a bronze, for a total of four medals. The Americans' medal number should increase consistently in the days to come.

Then in the women's slopestyle snowboarding event, the American's dominated as usual. It is a close battle, though, as Canada is in second with six medals, and Netherlands sits in third with five.
