94 Years Later, United States Wins 100th Gold Medal In Winter Olympics

94 Years Later, United States Wins 100th Gold Medal In Winter OlympicsAfter 23 Winter Olympic Games spanning a time period of 94 years, the United States has won its 100th gold medal.

The historic moment came when three-time gold medalist Shaun White picked up gold in the snowboard halfpipe on Tuesday in PyeongChang.

White struggled in the second run, falling while Japan’s Ayumu Hirano scored 95.25 to take the lead. The star snowboarder was able to reclaim the top position and win gold by scoring 97.75 in his final run.

At the start of PyeongChang 2018, Team USA had won Winter gold 96 times. The United States is now the second country to have earned 100 Winter Olympic gold medals, with the first being Norway. The Norwegians had accumulated 118 gold medals at the end of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, and have since earned three more in PyeongChang.

Team USA still has time to close in on their gap with Norway, as the 2018 Winter Olympics are just getting started. The U.S. is favored to win quite a few upcoming events in ice hockey, alpine skiing, and snowboarding.

At Bovada Sportsbook, the USA has -165 betting odds to win the ice hockey women’s event on Wednesday. Julia Marino has +375 betting odds to win the big air snowboarding competition, while Mikaela Shiffrin is the odds-on favorite (-350) to win women’s Slalom.

With 100 gold medals in the Olympic history books and 7 total medals so far in the 2018 Winter Olympics, right now might be the opportune time to bet on a few Olympic medal props at the best USA sportsbooks.

You can bet on the total number of USA gold medals to be over or under 10.5, or bet on Team USA to have the most overall medals at +400 betting odds.
