Sometimes just finishing a race is the biggest feat.

Skeleton competitor Sean Greenwood may not have come in first place, but he pulled off an incredible recovery after his sled flipped over as he was going over 70 mph.

In a scary moment Greenwood and his sled flipped around during a turn on the Olympic run. He seemed to fall a few feet as he flipped, but rather than stopping and checking to make sure he wasn’t injured, Greenwood somehow managed to right himself—and his sled—and finish his run.

The Irish Olympian finished 27th, but more or less uninjured, which seems like the biggest victory.

It's hard to believe that Soleil Moon Frye, the "Punky Brewster" actress, is all grown up and a mom -- times three!

The former child star, 37, and her husband, Jason Goldberg, welcomed their third child on Feb. 10 and named him Lyric Sonny Roads Goldberg.

"Can't wait to share our pics and moments in the upcoming months. Thanks for all the love and support," Frye wrote on her website.

Rancho Feeding Corporation of Petaluma, Calif., is recalling more than 8.7 million pounds of beef because it processed diseased and unhealthy animals without a full federal inspection, federal officials said in a news release.

The products affected by the meat recall were shipped to distribution centers in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas, according to the United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

In a statement to ABC News, Rancho Feeding Corporation said, "We deeply regret any inconvenience this may have caused our customers."

It's game over for Flappy Bird.

The enormously addictive game that has been downloaded millions of times was pulled from app stores last week after its creator said it had ruined his "simple life."

"I can call 'Flappy Bird' is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it," creator Dong Nguyen tweeted.

During an interview with The Verge last week, Nguyen said "Flappy Bird" was raking in $50,000 a day in revenue from in-app advertisements.
