Bobsledder Aja Evans already has one Olympic medal and very well may win another the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea — but regardless of the result at these Games, she has one definite post-competition plan. “One thing I know for sure that I’m going to do and I’m excited about is going Bigfoot hunting,” she tells PEOPLE with a laugh in the mountains of Pyeongchang, a few days before competing. Wait: Bigfoot. Really? “I’m randomly like a Bigfoot enthusiast,” Evans says. “I swear I’ve seen every episode of Finding Bigfoot, and Bobo from the show actually tweeted me and told me that we’re going to go Bigfoot hunting after the Olympics. So I’m excited about that because I’m really intrigued by Bigfoot and aliens and all these mysterious creatures and things that may exist in the world.” Keep

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Olympics are well underway and some of the most popular events are sports you might have tried yourself including ice skating and skiing. But, what about curling? The Albany Curling Club opened its doors one last time this season and you didn’t have to be an Olympic athlete to try this sport. “If you’ve ever seen the Winter Olympics, it’s the sport with the broom,” said curling club member, Deanna. That ‘sport with the broom’ is attracting plenty of attention this Olympic season. “We got Olympic fever and we saw that there was a free open house today so we thought we’d give it a shot and see if we can maybe make it to the next Winter Olympics,” said visitor, Tyler Nichols. Hundreds people came to the club Sunday to live out their Olympic dreams and try th
After winning the hearts of Americans on the ice — and on Twitter — Adam Rippon will be staying in PyeongChang, South Korea, as a contributor for NBC for the remainder of the 2018 Winter Olympics. NBC spokesman Greg Hughes told USA TODAY Sports on Sunday that the 28-year-old figure skater, who helped the USA bring home a bronze medal in the team competition, will work on a variety of platforms, including television, digital and social media. Rippon has become something of a social media sensation, both among spectators at home and celebrities like Reese Witherspoon and Sally Field, who are charmed by his drive, wit and candor.

After a long Winter Olympics absence, Lindsey Vonn—the most decorated female skier of all time—failed to take home a medal in her first Olympic event in eight years on Saturday morning (Friday evening stateside). Vonn made her highly anticipated 2018 Winter Olympics debut at the Women’s Super-G, aiming to become the third American athlete with three career Olympic alpine-skiing medals. But her dream was dashed when, first to compete, she set the time at 1:21.49, which was soon bested by several competitors. Commentators said they could see Vonn mouthing “I tried,” after her run, according to Sports Illustrated. Vonn will have another chance to medal in the downhill event later in the Games. The competition came eight long years after Vonn took home gold (downhill) and bronze (Super-G) in t

Austrian snowboarder Markus Schairer was seriously injured in a horrific crash on Thursday during his run in a quarterfinal heat at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. During the end of his run in the men’s snowboardcross event, Schairer lost control while mid-air and crash-landed on his backside—and the force of the impact was so great that the three-time Olympian’s goggles broke from his helmet as competitors boarded past him. Schairer was unable to move while on the snow for minutes after the crash. Schairer, 30, was eventually able to strap on his board and rise to his feet without help. Even crossed the finish line before waving to the crowd. According to NBC, Schairer was then transported to a hospital where it was determined he broke the fifth cervical vertebra in his n
