Figure skating: In a shocking turn of events, 15-year-old ROC figure skater Kamila Valieva placed fourth in this morning’s women’s singles free skate, meaning medals were awarded while the ongoing doping investigation surrounding Valieva continues.

🎿 Freestyle skiing: Marielle Thompson won silver in this morning’s women’s ski cross, gaining Canada’s 20th medal of the Games. Her second career Olympic medal (the first a gold in Sochi 2014), Thompson battled back from a second ACL tear to regain a spot on the podium. A true fighter.

🥌 Curling: Team Gushue will face the U.S. in tomorrow’s 1:05 a.m. ET bronze medal game, after falling 5–3 to Sweden in the semifinals. Will Canada’s first gold medalist in men’s curling be able to land another podium finish?

  • Meanwhile, despite an impressive 10–4 win over Denmark this morning, Team Jennifer Jones didn’t qualify for the playoffs, as the tie-breakers landed her team in fifth overall. You win some, you lose some.
