The main event

It's the moment so many wait for at every Winter Olympics: the free skate in women's figure skating. South Korean Kim Yu-na will go for the gold against Japan's Mao Asada.

Kim was the figure skating favorite all along, and she has the lead entering the free skate. Asada is second, and Canada's Joannie Rochette is third following an emotional short program shortly after the death of her mother.

Simply the best

The United States and Canada have rolled through the women's hockey tournament, leaving no doubt which two teams are the best. It's no surprise they'll play each other for gold.

Wrapping up

The second run of the women's giant slalom was pushed from Wednesday to Thursday because of dense fog. Lindsey Vonn is already out after crashing.


After a pair of silver medals already in the Nordic combined, the Americans hope to add gold in the final event in that sport, a 10-kilometer cross-country skiing race that follows ski jumping off the large hill.
