2018 Olympic Results

olympic rings.jpg

As the 2018 Winter Olympics come to an end, it started to unfold where the results were good for some and not so good for others.  Because I live in the United States, it’s obvious I would cheer on the athletes representing the Stars and Stripes over the others, but still wishing everyone would compete to the best of their ability.  The athletes provided emotional stories, hitting home a little more when it dealt with Minnesota and South Korea.  Here are the results in the 15 sports minus the men’s hockey team competition (GER vs. OAR).  I will be posting later some of the great moments, surprising moments, first time moments, and those moments destined to go down in Olympic history.
