It was a big day for Team Olympic Fever in Women's Bobsled and Men's Curling, as we celebrate Lauren Gibbs' silver medal and Team Shuster's advancement to the medal round.

It was also an amazing day for women at the Cross-Country Skiing venue, as the U.S. sprint relay team of Kikkan Randall and Jessie won the country's first gold medal ever in the sport. And it wasn't just the U.S. who had a great day; the Winter Olympics has a new all-time leading medalist too.

We talk about the U.S. medal in Speedskating and wrap up the Figure Skating competition. Then move into the Games' new event, Big Air. Plus, Alpine Skiing and what's up with our Team Olympic Fever ice hockey official Jess Leclerc.
