In this space, you can find everything you need to know about Team USA's performances, from Shaun White trying to end his Olympics career with a gold medal to the women's hockey squad vying for their second consecutive first-place finish.

These key links will get you started in your journey, while the live updates below will chronicle every bit of important news plus the major events and medal opportunities that Team USA achieves over the course of the two-week Games.
United States skier Mikaela Shiffrin came into the slalom portion of the Alpine combined race in fifth place. The 26-year-old star then failed to finish the event after she crashed about 10 gates into her run.

After failing to finish in the top three of that event, Shiffrin will leave the Beijing Olympics without an individual medal.

"Oh, man, I don't know if anybody has failed that hard with so many opportunities maybe in the history of the Olympics," Shiffrin told NBC following the race. "But I'll take it. I mean, it is a joke. That's fine. I just really selfishly wanted to have a good run of slalom down this hill, and I'll be left wanting there."

Shiffrin will have one final chance to earn an Olympic medal on Saturday when she competes in the mixed team parallel slalom competition. In addition, she will become just the second woman in Olympic history to compete in all six Alpine events.The United States men's hockey team suffered a shocking 3-2 shootout loss to Slovakia in the quarterfinals of the Olympics. The Americans went 0-for-5 in the shootout and Slovakia winger Peter Cehlarik recorded the game-winning goal on the team's fourth attempt.

With the loss, Team USA is done at these Olympics and will not medal.

The United States led Slovakia 2-1 with under a minute to go in regulation before Slovakia tied the game. American goaltender Strauss Mann was terrific in net as he recorded 34 saves and stopped four of the five Slovakian attempts in the shootout.

Team USA began the third period with a 2-1 lead after Nick Abruzzese and Sam Hentges had scored earlier in the game. The United States had a chance to get an insurance goal when they had a 5-on-3 power-play in the third period, but failed to cash in on the opportunity.

This marks the third consecutive Olympics in which Team USA has failed to earn a medal. Their last medal came in Vancouver in 2010 when the Americans earned a silver medal.
