Medal events today, Beijing Olympics 2022: Which sports will be handing out medals on DAY, DATE
We have six medal events in sight on Wednesday at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. Gold medals will be awarded in women’s slalom, men’s big air freeski, double luge, individual cross-country on normal hill 10 km , in men’s 1500m short track speed skating and in women’s snowboard cross.
The biggest question of the day is: How will Mikaela Shiffrin bounce back in women’s slalom after eliminating giant slalom earlier this week? She was the reigning Olympic champion in that event, but will need to recover and turn her attention to an event in which she won gold in 2014 and then found herself with a heartbreaking fourth place finish four years later.
Another well-known American winter sports athlete will also be aiming for gold on Wednesday: snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis. She is a five-time Olympian and has won five world championships and 10 X Games gold medals in snowboard cross. However, she has only one Olympic medal – a silver in 2006 – to show for her efforts. Does she still have a bit of magic at 36?
