Winter Olympics Highlights (Feb 8th)

As the Winter Olympics ensues, storylines continue to take shape. 

Arguably the biggest story coming out of Beijing is ‘The Snow Princess’. 

The Snow Princess reigns

China’s Eileen Gu completed a 1620 jump en route to her first gold medal, the youngest in the country’s history. 

At 18-years-old, the California native scored 94.50 in her third jump to best France’s Tess Ledeux. 

When asked about her gravity-defying stunt, she remained unraveled, stating she “felt pretty confident” citing her time learning piano as a reason to be eased at that moment. 

In attendance was China native, Peng Shuai, the tennis star who’s publicly embroiled in the sexual assault controversy linked to ex-Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli.

Chen breaks record with Quad jumps

Elsewhere in the Winter Games, American triple world champ Nathan Chen had a world record-scoring routine to head men’s figure skating.

He nailed two, effortless-appearing quad jumps, notching a season-high, international best score of 113.97. 

The previous world record holder and reigning 2-time champion, Yuzuru Hanyu finished eighth after struggling to complete a quad jump. 

Geisenberger gets the 3-peat

Germany’s Natalie Geisenberger won her 3rd consecutive Olympic luge title. She now stands as the first person to accomplish the feat.

Tatyana Ivanova secured a bronze medal in the contest, the first medal in the women’s luge for Russia in over 40 years.
