The Olympic rings that follow US athletes home from the games

Canada forward Derek Roy vies for the puck

Eight teams, from universities and private companies, entered skiing robots into the competition, with a US$10,000 prize up for grabs for the fastest bot to navigate its way around five flags on a short descent. I've been glued to the tube for years when the ski jump comes on, watching daredevils fly through the sky in an event that makes you wonder how it ever started.

Earlier in the day, speed skater Håvard Holmefjord Lorentzen from Bergen had thrilled fans back home with his powerful performance in the 500-meter race. Japan conceded the game after the South Koreans stole three points in the eighth end.

Billed at the world's first robot ski tournament, the event was hosted in the ski resort of Hoengseong, on the sidelines of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

Add in the lackluster performance of the USA hockey team - which lost 4-0 to Russian Federation on Saturday - and the absence of any medals in (nonshort track) speed skating and there's not a lot to cheer about.

The pair ranked 13th out of 16 teams, outperforming South Korean pair Kim Kyu-eun and Kam Alex Kang-chan. Lee will turn 30-years-old in March, so he could return to defend South Korea's title in 2022 with Kim and Chung. "My teammates helped me to fix my mistakes, which I'm really thankful (for)", Chung said to the media.

Bradie Tennell of the United States falls while performing during the women's short program figure skating in the Gangneung Ice Arena at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Gangneung, South Korea, Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018.

"I just tried to calm myself down to deliver what it took".

Savolainen was eventually helped off, with one person under each arm, her legs dangling nearly uselessly beneath her.

"We've got Korea again, we've played them many times being in the Pacific region, we're just excited to get the opportunity", Lind said. "The Nordic combined skier from Switzerland is also alone here, but he has been training with the Norway team".

The Trump administration says Vice President Mike Pence was ready to meet with representatives from North Korea during his visit to the Olympic Games in South Korea but that North Korea canceled at the last minute. She was the only US skier to qualify for both the halfpipe and slopestyle events.
