The return of America to the Olympic podium in women’s figure skating won’t be for at least another four years. The three female U.S. skaters competing in the 2018 Winter Games finished on Friday no better than ninth. It was, according to one longtime American figure skating reporter, collectively the worst performance by the country’s women figure skaters — ever. “I am extremely disappointed, I’m not going to lie,” Karen Chen told the press after her free skate in the final on Friday afternoon (Thursday night stateside). “I know I’ve trained myself to skate better than that,” Chen said, “and not being able to deliver is a huge let-down for myself and everyone who supported me.” Chen, 18, competed for Team USA along with 24-year-old Mirai Nagasu and 20-year-old Bradie Tennell. All three ha

On Wednesday evening in Pyeongchang, Jessie Diggins and Kikkan Randall made history when they won the first women’s cross-country gold medal for Team USA in Olympic history in the Team Sprint relay. It was a finish for the ages. After Diggins sprinted past the Swedish skier in the final meters of the relay, and crossed the finish line in first, she collapsed in disbelief as Randall ran over and jumped on top of her in the snow to celebrate their monumental feat. It will no doubt be one of the most indelible images from the games. No Olympic sports are easy, but cross-country skiing is without a doubt one of the most taxing competitions. It’s not uncommon to see athletes collapse and barf after they cross the finish line. It’s a sport for the most fit, determined, and bull...

The shortest answer to the question of how U.S. figure skater Nathan Chen landed his historic six quadruple jumps at the Winter Olympics last week is: He jumped, succeeded and then just kept jumping. But there’s a longer answer, too. “I start every day just trying to narrow down little tasks so I don’t get so overwhelmed by the whole picture, and that’s the way that I approached my long program here,” Chen, 18, tells PEOPLE just a few days after his startling comeback in the men’s individual free skate on Saturday. That’s where Chen pulled off his unprecedented number of quads, which require four full rotations in the air and which, until this weekend, had never been done so many times before in one routine on Olympic ice. “There are six quads, if you look at them in a big picture, it’s si
