Olympics 2018: Looking In

It was Jocelyne Lamoureux (USA) who looked in the tying goal for Team USA.  It was her goal that put the game into overtime.  After twenty minutes of a scoreless overtime, the game went to a shoot out.  After each team had five shots on goal, the game was stilled tied.  It was the sixth shot on goal, made by Team USA and missed by Team Canada that decided the game.  It was Gold for the American women and Silver for the Canadians.

Olympics 2018: Face Off

Seems appropriate to paint this scene for the Women's Hockey Gold Medal game.  Team USA and Team Canada have faced off for the Gold for three Olympics in a row now.  In their round robin game, Canada won by a goal with the Americans almost scoring as time ran out.  At this point in the game, the score was 2-1 Canada.  Team USA was up for the fight.

Olympics 2018: Determined

I am currently traveling and do not have my normal set up for photographing these watercolors.  Put I love both watching and painting the Olympics.  I am currently in Colorado to see our brand new grand daughter, so I apologize for the shadow and the cropping of this image.

This is Michelle Gisin (Switzerland) on her way to a Gold Medal in the Women's Combined in Pyeong Chang.

Olympics 2018: Left Turn

Mikaela Shiffrin (USA) was laying down a brilliant run in the slalom race of the Women's Combined.  Her time was enough to put her into first place, giving her a shot at winning her second Gold Medal of these games.  It was not to be, but she did take Silver in this event.

Olympics 2018: A Light Touch

I will admit it, short track is my favorite skating event in the winter Olympics.  This is from the Women's Relay qualifying events.  The home team of South Korea is leading the Australians and Chinese into the final turn of the quarter finals.

Olympics 2018: All in a Row

The USA women, Heather Bersma, Brittany Bowe, Mia Manganello, Carlijn Schoutens, skated beautifully in the Women's Team Pursuit.  I am reminded of the Team Time Trial in cycling when watching these women draft each other while chasing down the Polish team on the other side of the track.  They ended a 16 year drought winning Bronze in this event.

Olympics 2018: All Aboard!

Living in Richmond, Virginia, it is exciting to see one of our own, Hakeem Abdul-Saboor (USA), competing in the Olympics.  While he and his driver, Cunningham, did not medal, nor finish about 21st place, it is truly an honor just to be at the Olympics.  I am sure it is an experience he will treasure of the rest of his life.

Olympics 2018: Quite a Transition

Wow!  Ester Ledecka (Czech Republic) is the first Olympian, male or female, to take medals in both snowboarding and alpine skiing in the same olympic games.  After medaling in the Women's Snowboard Slalom, she came out today to claim Gold in the Women's Super G.

Olympics 2018: Cutting It Close 2

With apologies, but some times a good title is still good even if it has been used.  It wasn't until I was photo editing that I realize I had already used this title.  In this case, it also applies to her time, one that just barely put her into the gold medal position at the line.  At the end of the day it was the Bronze Medal for Tina Weirather (Lichtenstein) continuing the medal winning family tradition.

Olympics 2018: Starting It Off

The American, Lindsey Vonn, was the first women to take the the Super-G course, an unenviable position.  She naturally posted the first best time, but managed to hold that ranking for some time.  Alas, she finished the day tied for sixth place.
