Medal Tally Olympics 2014: Updated Results for Each Event from Day 5
Sergei Grits/Associated Press

Of the six gold medals handed out on Day 5 of the 2014 Winter Olympics, one of them finally went to Team USA again, which marked the third of the Olympics for the U.S.

After no American male snowboarder reached the podium in the halfpipe competition for the first time in Winter Olympics history, two females medaled in the halfpipe event on Wednesday.

Hanah Teter failed to medal, but Kaitlyn Farrington and Kelly Clark pulled through with a gold and bronze, respectively. Australian Torah Bright finished second to secure the silver medal, as USA Today reports:

Jeremy Schaap of ESPN came up with a pretty fitting nickname for the Idaho native:

The finishes by both were surprising, but Farrington was not expected to medal at all coming in and she finished fourth in the qualification just to get to the final event. Her finish is yet another shocker in snowboarding after Sage Kotsenburg won the slopestyle gold and Shaun White failed to medal.

Here's an updated look at the medal count standings at the end of the Day 5 events:

Despite the success of Farrington and Clark, it wasn't all perfect for the Americans. Shani Davis, the two-time defending gold medalist in the 1,000-meter speedskating event, was unable to pull off the three-peat and failed to medal in his best event.

Though she already claimed a bronze in the Olympics, Julia Mancuso was unable to pull out a second in the women's downhill on Day 5. One of the best alpine skiers in American history, Mancuso was favored in the event but wound up finishing a disappointing eighth.

Outside of the U.S., several stories of triumph took place Wednesday as the legend of the Russians on home ice continued.

The pairs duo of Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov once again wowed the Russian crowd and came away with the gold, but the moment that followed the performance was just as memorable as the routine.

Volosozhar and Trankov were brought to tears by the applause and cheered frantically as Volosozhar fell to the ground in his celebration, as Nick McCarvel of NBC points out:

While Davis failed to medal, the Netherlands once again controlled the podium as Michel Mulder took the bronze after winning the medal in the 500-meter event. His fellow countryman Stefan Groothuis took the gold in the event as the Dutch won five medals in the 500- and 1,000-meter races.
