Sochi Winter Olympics: Day 14 Medal Predictions and Results
Associated Press
Teenage sensation Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States won gold in the women's slalom.

Imagine being the favorite to win an event at the Winter Olympics

Now, imagine those expectations are placed on the shoulders of an 18-year-old Alpine skier. That's the situation American skier Mikaela Shiffrin faced in the women's slalom.

Instead of letting that pressure sink her, Shiffrin rose to the occasion and won the second Alpine gold medal for the United States with two magnificent runs.

Russian short-track speedskater Victor An was also under intense pressure. However, he laughed at that pressure in winning the 500-meter sprint and leading the Russian team to the 5,000-meter relay gold medal.

Canadian skiers Marielle Thompson and Kelsey Serwa took gold and silver in the ski cross event. Canada was also successful in winning the men's curling championship, as that nation trounced Great Britain.
