Team USA's Only Mom Wins Her First Gold In Her Fifth And Final Olympics
Every mother deserves a gold medal.
But Kikkan Randall, the only mom competing for Team USA in the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, literally earned one Wednesday, combining with Jessie Diggins to win the United States' first medal in women's Olympic cross-country competition.
The medal is the first for American cross-country skiers in the Olympics since Bill Koch won a silver in 1976.
"It's taken a lot of support. My husband and my family have been incredible traveling with us all through the winters so that we could have the sport and I could focus on training," Randall said after Wednesday's victory. "But it's been so fun. It's been a new challenge. There was a huge motivation to come back to contribute the team efforts here. That's what really helped me make through the comeback."
