Pyeongchang Olympics Speed Skating Women

US women win bronze to end speedskating medal drought

GANGNEUNG, South Korea (AP) — Mia Manganello crossed the finish line, glanced at the videoboard and let out a yell.

She then grabbed hands with American teammates Heather Bergsma and Brittany Bowe, and the trio thrust their arms in the air.

The Americans had reason to celebrate Wednesday. They finally won a long-track speedskating medal at the Pyeongchang Olympics, ending a U.S. drought for the women dating to the 2002 Salt Lake City Games.

"It was just an uproar of emotions of screamin' and cheerin'," a smiling Manganello said.
