The U.S. scored an historic victory on day 15 of the games after Maria Shiffrin became the youngest ever Olympian to win the slalom ski event.

Just 18, Shiffrin beat older, more experienced rivals - including former slalom champion Marlies Schild of Austria, adding another slalom gold medal to America's record at Sochi.

Team U.S.A. also scored silver in the men's 5000 meter short track race, receiving their first medal in short track at these games.

Despite the firsts, the U.S. slipped into fourth place on the overall Olympic medal tally with a total of 27, which includes 9 gold, 7 silver and 11 bronze.
