5 things you missed in Sochi last night
As the Winter Olympics continue in Sochi, Russia, here are five things you might have missed early Friday morning while you were sleeping.
1. Gold and silver in women's ski cross
Canada added to the medal count as Marielle Thompson and Kelsey Serwa won the gold and silver medals respectively in the women's ski cross final. Canadian Georgia Simmerling was eliminated in the quarter-finals after a nasty crash, but she was able to walk away from it. Sweden's Anna Holmlund rounded the podium up with the bronze medal.
2. Sweden wins bronze in men's curling
It took an extra end but Niklas Edin skipped Sweden to the bronze medal by beating China 6-4 in the 11th end. They took advantage of two technical violations by China, one in the ninth end and another in the 11th.
Brad Jacobs and Team Canada play for gold against Great Britain at 8:30 a.m. ET.
3. German Doping Scandal
Sochi's first failed drug test came on Day 14. An unnamed German athlete tested positive on an "A" sample, while the "B" sample will be tested today. The substance, like the athlete, is left unnamed.
4. Hayley Wickenheiser accepts Ellen Degeneres's compliment
Coming off the gold medal win the Canadian women's hockey team was showered with adoration from friends, family and fans. Hayley Wickenheiser brought the attention of one particular tweet:
