2014 Winter Olympics Results: February 22

In the penultimate day of competition in the 2014 Winter Olympics, the nightmare went from bad to worse for the United States.

The most upsetting part of the day's events came in the men's hockey tournament as the USA fell to Finland 5-0 in the bronze medal game to go home empty-handed. With a run as epic as the one the U.S. made, to get shut out two games in a row and be sent home with nothing was a huge blow. With only the shootout thriller win over their longtime rivals Russia, the U.S. hockey team has some regrouping to do.

United States 1 barely moved into fourth place in the initial runs of the four-man bobsleigh. With a +0.17 gap to make up between them and Russia, the hopes of a medal could be slipping away. Everything hinges on Sunday's final run, but with the Russian sled running as tight as it is, it's a tall order.

American snowboarder Justin Reiter was crushed as he ended up being disqualified during the men's parallel slalom competition. A review showed he had tracked a gate during one of his seeding runs, and he was immediately disqualified. Reiter had spent the past year living out of his truck in order to train, only making his way to Sochi from donations to his online campaign while he lived in the ski resort's parking lot. Reiter had earned his spot. With his career far from over, redemption is in the works.

With only three events scheduled on Sunday and one of them being the men's hockey gold medal game, a medal count win is out of the question for the U.S. Well behind Russia, who leads with 29 overall, the U.S. sits with 27, nine of them gold.

All results are final unless otherwise noted.
