SOCHI SCENE: Medal movers
Question of the Day
The eastern European country picked up two gold medals on Monday to be Sochi’s biggest medal mover of the day, moving to seventh in the overall medal standings after 60 events. Anton Kushnir won in freestyle men’s aerials while Darya Domracheva won the womem’s 12.5-kilometer mass start biathlon.
Two events held over from Sunday were delayed again to Tuesday, the men’s snowboardcross and men’s 15-kilometer mass start biathlon. A total of 12 countries won medals in five events Monday.
Other tidbits from Monday’s medals:
- Americans won two more medals, a gold in ice dancing and a bronze in the men’s two-man bobsled. The United States is the only country to medal every day during title competition at the Sochi Games.
