Five gold medals are at stake on Day 8 of the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Mixed Team Snowboard Cross makes its debut at the Winter Olympics and is the lone medal event on Friday night. A quadrant of American snowboarders — Lindsey Jacobellis, Nick Baumgartner, Faye Gulini, Jake Vedder — look to continue to build momentum for Team USA in mixed events.
On Thursday, the United States claimed the first gold medal in freestyle skiing mixed team aerials.
The U.S. men’s curling team lost to Sweden 7-4 in their round-robin match, the first time the two countries have competed at the Olympics since the 2018 gold medal game.
The other four medal competitions on Day 8 take place early Saturday morning in the United States. Those events are: women’s 4x5km relay (cross-country skiing), men’s 500m (speed skating), men’s 10km sprint (biathlon), and the men’s individual large hill final (ski jumping).
There are also two pivotal matches for Team USA on the ice — the men’s hockey team takes on rival Canada and the men’s curling teams squares off against Norway.
Here’s a breakdown of those events, when they’re set to begin and how to watch them.
