We Bribed Adam Rippon With Donuts For Olympics Gossip

Adam Rippon might be the only Olympian who’s been busier since he got back from South Korea than he was during the competition. The 28-year-old returned home with a bronze medal from the figure skating team event—and a packed schedule of media appearances and marquee events. We talked to Rippon the morning after he…

President Trump Graciously Accepts Credit For Saving The Winter Olympics President Trump Graciously Accepts Credit For Saving The Winter Olympics

Those anxious weeks and months leading up to the Pyeongchang Olympics seem so long ago, now. With the games themselves just recently in the past, it’s easy to forget the questions that so defined those days. In bars and around water coolers, out loud to friends and family and in an echoing loop in our minds, America…

From John Shuster's Persistence To Rachel Homan's Disappointment, Every Olympic Curler Is On A Journey From John Shuster's Persistence To Rachel Homan's Disappointment, Every Olympic Curler Is On A Journey

Last November, my team played in a World Curling Tour event. Our team couldn’t be considered “competitive”—we play about one such event a year, whereas the good ones are looking at about a dozen weeks a year. We know what we’re doing; we’re just out of shape. Still, we finished 0-3 in our pool and out of championship…

Nice And Good Isn't Enough To Be A Story At The Olympics Nice And Good Isn't Enough To Be A Story At The Olympics

Parents are an Olympic reporter’s gold mine, or anyway something like a lifeline. They are not what anyone would term an unbiased source, of course, but they can tell you what’s human about the superhuman athlete they’ve raised and shed light on their athlete’s otherwise invisible life away from competition. Their…

Olympian Haley Anderson Ranks The Buoyancy Of Olympic Heroes

Two-time Olympic open swimmer Haley Anderson knows a thing or two about buoyancy, but how does she feel about the buoyancy of, say, Olympic curler Matt Hamilton? Or Aja Evans?

Well That Was A Bizarre Press Conference From Mirai Nagasu Well That Was A Bizarre Press Conference From Mirai Nagasu

Of all the parties involved in the U.S. women’s figure skating collapse yesterday, Mirai Nagasu had perhaps the most baffling performance.

The U.S. Women Fall Apart In Figure Skating The U.S. Women Fall Apart In Figure Skating

A medal for the U.S. women in the ladies single figure skating was always going to be a long shot at best.

In the third straight edition of USA vs. Canada in the women’s Olympic hockey gold medal game, the Americans flipped the script.

Elizabeth Swaney's Dad Is Proud Of Her  Elizabeth Swaney's Dad Is Proud Of Her 

Through hard work and a series of gaping loopholes, Elizabeth Swaney managed to qualify for the Hungarian Olympic ski team despite having little skiing ability.

This Is A Truly Dreadful Curling Shot This Is A Truly Dreadful Curling Shot

It does not take a curling genius (or, barring that, just a regular old Canadian citizen) to figure out that Japanese skip Yusuke Morozumi really boinked this one against Denmark.
