Women carried the United States in the Winter Olympics that ended Sunday. They won 12 of America’s 23 medals and five of Team USA’s nine gold.
You go, girl? I’ll say. From 17-year-old snowboarder Chloe Kim to 28-year-old hockey player Hillary Knight to 35-year-old cross-country skier Kikkan Randall, America’s women entertained us with their skill, thrilled us with their daring and brought tears to our eyes with their refuse-to-quit grit.
I hope the U.S. Olympic Committee keeps this in mind when it doles out training dollars between now and Beijing in 2022.
