Sochi latest: Historic skate for the gold

FIRST ICE DANCING GOLD FOR TEAM USA: After two nearly flawless performances, the American figure skating duo Meryl Davis and Charlie White won the gold for ice dancing – Team USA’s first ever in that category.

REMATCH FOR U.S. WOMEN’S HOCKEY TEAM: The U.S. women’s hockey team advances to the final round on Thursday after defeating Sweden, 6-1. They will play against Canada for the gold – a rematch from the 2010 Vancouver Games, in which the neighbors to the north beat Team USA.

BUZZ CONTINUES OVER RUSSIA VS. USA MATCH: The nail-biter men’s hockey match on Saturday ended in a penalty shoot-out and a major U.S. upset against long-time rivals Russia. On Monday, Russian fans gathered near the U.S. Embassy in Moscow to protest a controversial call which disallowed a critical Russian goal.

BOBSLED RACE, 62 YEARS IN THE MAKING: It’s a bronze for Steven Holcomb of Park City, Utah, and Steve Langton of Melrose, Mass. The pair placed third in the two-man bobsled– the first medal by an American sled since 1952.

COSTAS BACK IN THE ANCHOR CHAIR: Veteran NBC sportscaster Bob Costas will return to the anchor chair Monday night to host the latest Sochi Olympic coverage. He was benched last week after suffering from an infection in both eyes.

BLAME IT ON THE FOG: Foggy weather conditions prompted the men’s snowboard cross and 15km biathlon event to be postponed.
