How is the US doing in the Winter Olympics? As of right now, the US is in 5th place for the most metals won so far with 4 gold, 2 silver and 4 bronze metals. You can keep yourself updated at the Sochi website. This is a great website for checking up on events, looking at different metals won, and checking up on Olympian profiles.
For example, I found another local Olympian. If you’ve been watching the Figure Skating competition, you may know Gracie Gold. In her low training season, she trains 21 hours a week at ice rinks in Glen Ellyn and Vernon Hills. If you want to read more about Gracie, read an article about her time in the Daily Herald.
