Brief: 2010 Olympic update

After a strong start at the 2010 Winter Games, the U.S. saw little success Tuesday.

The men’s ice hockey team won its first game in the men’s preliminary round against Switzerland 3-1, but the win was overshadowed by losses from both the men’s and ladies’ curling teams.

The closest the U.S. got to the podium was in ladies’ snowboard cross. Lindsey Jacobellis ended up at No. 5.

Hoping to regain momentum in these Winter Games, the U.S. will continue competition today in six medal events.

U.S. medals won:

2 Gold

2 Silver

4 Bronze
