USA sets a record with 6 medals in one day, takes medal lead in Vancouver 2010 Olympics
Yesterday, Lindsey Vonn shook off her shin injury to take gold in the women's downhill, Shani Davis won the 1,000 meter speed skating event, and then Shaun White dominated the halfpipe, clinching gold after his first run, and then bested his first run on his victory lap.
The previous American record for medals in a single day was in Salt Lake City, back in 2002, when they took home 5. Yesterday, aside from the 3 golds I mentioned earlier, they also took home a silver with Julia Mancuso, and then bronzes from Chad Hedrick (speed skating) and Scott Lago (halfpipe).
Team USA now sits on top of the medal list, with 14 total. Germany is 2nd with 10, France has 7, and Canada is in 4th with 6.
