The Americans got it done on the halfpipe this time around.

Kaitlyn Farrington had the ride of her life and won gold for the U.S. women's snowboarders. She nailed the final run of the day and that enabled her to climb to the top of the medal stand. She got to share that moment with teammate Kelly Clark, who took the bronze medal in the event.

The Russians got the gold medal they wanted in the pairs figure skating championship. Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov dominated the competition, and the Russian fans roared with approval. They were also pleased to see Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov bring home the silver medal.

There were two gold medals in the women's downhill skiing, as Dominique Gisin of Switzerland and Tina Maze of Slovenia received identical times of 1 minute, 41.57 seconds.

Shani Davis of the United States was hoping for his third straight gold medal in the 1,000-meter race, but he finished eighth as Dutch skater Stefan Groothuis won the event.

Elsewhere, Tobias Wendl and Tobias Arlt of Germany won the doubles luge competition, while Eric Frenzel of Germany won the Nordic combined.
