Thursday Winter Olympics Update

February 20, 2014, 6:20 AM

Thursday Winter Olympics Update
SOCHI, RUSSIA -

U.S. Men’s Hockey Team Enjoys Russia

Everyone wants to get their picture taken in front of the Olympic rings in Sochi. The U.S. men's hockey team is no different.

One day before they take on Canada in a highly anticipated semifinal, the Americans walked into Olympic Park for a team photo in front of the rings. After the team picture was taken, they welcomed in some family members who made the trip to Sochi as well.

Most of the players were wearing Navy blue jerseys with their names and numbers on the back, so it wasn't long before fans realized they were in the company of stars.

Several players were approached for photos, including the team's newest star. A woman quickly grabbed T.J. Oshie, who carried Team USA to a victory over Russia with four shootout goals, for a photo.

After a few photos, the team hurried away to resume preparations for its showdown with Canada on Friday.

Lamb Frustrated With U.S. Speedskating Leadership

There's more dissension for U.S. Speedskating. Maria Lamb is taking aim at the organization's leadership after a last-place showing at the Winter Olympics.

The U.S. team has failed to win a medal in Sochi, with much of the focus on the high-tech skinsuits that were dumped midway through the Winter Games. Lamb says that's "just the tip of the iceberg" and the leadership of U.S. Speedskating is largely to blame for the team's problems.

Lamb made her comments after finishing 16th in the 5,000 meters Wednesday.

She says some skaters "have raced better in spite of the organization rather than because of it." Lamb used an expletive to describe what the team has gone through and says, "Unfortunately, it came to a head that we could no longer perform well."

U.S.A.-1 Driver Holcomb Says Injured Leg Improving

U.S.A.-1 driver Steven Holcomb ran a few steps on his injured leg before loading into his bobsled as he prepared for this weekend's Olympic four-man event.

Holcomb, who won bronze in two-man to end a 62-year U.S. medal drought in that event, strained his calf muscle earlier in the Sochi Games. On Thursday, his crew took two practice runs and although the times were slow - 16th place - Holcomb was encouraged that he was able to do some running after only sitting in the sled at the start on Wednesday.

Holcomb has had acupuncture and other treatments and joked that he's been offered other remedies "but most of them are illegal."

Holcomb won the four-man competition at Vancouver in 2010, the first U.S. gold in that event since 1948.

Olympic Medal Movers

Norway is back atop the medal standings after winning two golds for the second day in a row - the fourth time it's won two golds in a day during the Sochi Games.

Norway's two golds made it the biggest medal mover of the day for Wednesday, with the United States and Russia winning three medals each. Norway's golds came in cross-country skiing and the mixed relay biathlon.

Norway moved ahead of Germany in the overall medal standings with the performance, with 20 medals total. Germany won no medals Wednesday.

The United States took a lead on the Netherlands and Russia for most total medals with 23. There are more Americans in the Olympics than from any other country.

Canada ended a weeklong gold medal drought with first place in the women's bobsled.

Eight medal events are scheduled for Thursday, including bronze and gold medal games in women's hockey.
