There are just a few days left of the 2022 Winter Olympics — meaning a few last chances for medals. Tonight, Mikaela Shiffrin will race in the mixed team slalom race for the first time in her career, and potentially her first medal of these Games. She has a big supporter in another great U.S. Olympian — Simone Biles.
Shiffrin would join Petra Vlhova of Slovakia as the only woman to enter six Alpine skiing events in a single Olympics.
Elsewhere, the gold will be given out in men’s freeski halfpipe, where four Americans — David Wise, Aaron Blunck, Alex Ferreira and Birk Irving — are in the field and medal contenders.
In the first two heats of the men’s four-man bobsled, we’ll see German Olympic GOAT Francesco Friedrich pilot his team. Friedrich is trying to win gold in both two- and four-man events for the second straight Olympics. He also has a side gig as a Craigslist for used sleds. And we’ll see the Jamaican team in action for the first time in 24 years.
Finally, at 1:45 a.m. ET, or 6:45 a.m. in the U.K., Britain will be going for its first medal of these Games. The Brits face Sweden in the men’s curling gold-medal match.
