Mikaela Shiffrin captured the 5th gold medal for the U.S. at this year’s winter Olympics in South Korea.
She won the women’s giant slalom.
Shiffrin’s success offset a bad day for Team USA in hockey.
The U.S. men lost in overtime to Slovenia, 3 to 2 and the U.S. women fell to gold medal favorite Canada, 2 to 1.
