Winter Olympics 2018: Germany dominate opening bobsleigh heats with Canada close on heels
A native of Naalehu, Hawaii, Kripps spent time in British Columbia and Hawaii growing up.
Norway, once a powerhouse in the sport alongside the Netherlands, has struggled in recent decades and until Monday had not won a gold medal in speedskating at the Olympics since Adne Sondral's victory in the 1,500m in Nagano in 1998.
A London man and his Canadian teammate have scored a gold medal in two-man bobsled at the winter games.
The Canadian sled lead by just one hundredth of a second approaching the final two hairpin bends, but the event finished a dead heat as their combined time of 3.16.86 matched that of their German rivals. Had that rule still been in play, Friedrich and Margis would have won this time - after setting a start record Sunday and a track record Monday. "And then I saw the 1, and basically blacked out".
That wasn't the case for the Americans.
That is one medal of each colour for Canada so far at the track, in the right progression: bronze in women's singles luge, silver in the luge relay and now gold in men's two-man bobsled.
A brakeman for Lueders in four-man in 2010, Kripps raced to a sixth-place showing in his Olympic debut as a two-man pilot in Sochi four years ago.
"I feel good, I feel powerful", Olsen said.
"It seems like this whole season we've had a lot of setbacks", Weinstock said. "But I think we can put this behind us".
"I made a decision to just kind of keep it quiet for the moment and just personally reflect on that for a bit and dedicate the race to her, and focus back up and get ready for the task at hand", he added.
Nick Cunningham and Hakeem Abdul-Saboor were 24th for the US, one spot ahead of fellow Americans Codie Bascue and Sam McGuffie. Kripps was also slower, landing behind Lochner with his second run, and Melbardis dropped all the way to fourth after a poor run from the Latvian.
"It's tough. We didn't train so long to come here and place 25th, " Bascue said. Once the mob kind of dispersed a little bit Thorsten was giving me a hug, he was in my ear and he was like, 'It was three hundredths and two and then we tied.' I was like, 'We tied?'
Tariff winners and losers: US Steel spikes, Ford retreats
Stepped-up foreign production of steel and aluminum, especially by China, has driven down prices and hurt American producers. GM uses American steel and aluminum for "a vast majority" of its production, Tom Henderson, a spokesman, said in an email.
Wreckage of crashed plane found in central Iran
After two days of heavy snow and fog, the weather finally cleared this morning, giving helicopter teams much better visibility. However, the breakthrough Nuclear Deal with the United States in 2015 has paved way for modernization of the Iran Aircrafts.
