Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada won gold in the ice dance, and knocked Team USA’s Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue into fourth place, with a record score of 206.07 points.

But the United States didn’t go without a medal in the event — sibling duo Maia and Alex Shibutani earned bronze. The "Shib Sibs" performed a strong free skate to a medley of Coldplay songs.

France’s Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron took silver. The French pair broke their own world record for a free dance with 123.35 points to “Moonlight Sonata.” But Virtue and Moir answered back, beating France with a new best, 122.40 points.

Could the United States sweep the podium in men's freeski slopestyle this year? That possibility remains alive after all four of the team's male halfpipe skiers successfully qualified for the final.

Aaron Blunck led the way with the top score from qualifying, but teammates Alex Ferreira and Torin Yater-Wallace were close behind him. Those three skiers were the top three from the qualifying round.

David Wise, who fell on his first run, dialed things back on his second attempt with a conservative safety run. It landed him in eighth place, enough to secure him a spot in the final as well.

Gus Kenworthy missed the team after a brutal selection process for Team USA. He did make the slopestyle team, however, according to NBCOlympics.com.

The final will be Thursday night in the U.S. at 9:30 p.m. on the east coast.

The United States’ men’s hockey defeated Slovakia 5-1 Tuesday to advance to the quarterfinals.

Next, Team USA will face the Czech Republic on Wednesday night (Tuesday in the U.S.).

The Americans beat Slovakia 2-1 in group play last week. It was America’s only win in group play. With National Hockey League players absent in the Olympics, Team USA is comprised of mostly college kids who failed to make it into the professional league.
