Team USA can thank Jessie Diggins and Red Gerard for two of their nine gold medals.

Both Olympians conquered the snow in their winter sports, coming out on top even when the odds were stacked against them.

The first time Olympic snowboarder, 17, overcame his near last place finish after a dramatic and unforgettable final run during his Men’s Slopestyle competition.

Jessie, 26, and her teammate Kikkan Randall, took home the gold after a photo finish, winning Team USA’s first Women‘s Cross-Country Team gold medal.
