EXTRA: Dutch skater ter Mors beats Ledecka to the history books

Skating star Jorien ter Mors of the Netherlands

TSX EXTRA– for Feb. 20, 2018: The shock of Ester Ledecka’s victory in the women’s Super-G race led many to think she would become the first to win medals in two different sports in the same Winter Games. After all, she’s the favorite in the Parallel Giant Slalom in Snowboard.

But it was 28-year-old Dutch skater Jorien ter Mors who got there first, thanks to a world record in the Short Track women’s 3,000 m relay and a couple of disqualifications.

We have the details of a crazy sequence that gave ter Mors a bronze medal in Short Track to go along with her win in the women’s 1,000 m in long-track Speed Skating.

That’s not the only thing that happened in a wild Day 11:

  • Canada passes the U.S. for third in our exclusive team scoring;
  • What did the training runs tell us about the women’s Downhill?
  • Elana Meyers Taylor sitting second, but ready to strike in Bobsleigh;
  • Historic scores in Ice Dancing leaves world-record setters with silver;
  • Quality win for the U.S. men’s ice hockey team and on to the quarters.
