"I tell them (their) clips are one thing, but when you get into job interviews, you're going to end up talking about the Olympics for three-fourths of the interview and chances are it's going to give you quite the leg up on the competition".

But here, photographers chart the movement of different kinds of stars, in events like figure skating, skiing, and snowboarding - and the results are incredible. They will also present the final gold medals of the games that have yet to be awarded.

After shaking hands the Korean foursome turned to the crowd and bowed before leaving the ice to a standing ovation.

As nearly every 5,000m relay does, this final featured plenty of mayhem, including the host nation of South Korea crashing out, leaving just Hungary, China and Canada to battle for position on the podium.

At least one Asian team will play for the gold with Sweden and Britain clashing in the other semi. "They cracked a little bit before we even got to the fifth".

"It will be very exciting to know that somebody from the Pacific Asia region will get a medal and that's an unbelievable thing for our sport".

The 2018 Winter Olympics are being held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, from February 9, 2018 (2/9/18) to February 25, 2018 (2/25/18). It's her third Olympic medal overall. "Women's snowboarding has progressed; it's such a fast pace, it's such an honor to be a part of that", she said. "I hope my passion and my journey can be an inspiration and motivation for people that face challenges", she said. Her bronze in the women's cross-country team sprint took her medals total to 14 (seven of them gold), surpassing the previous benchmark set by her compatriot, biathlete Ole Einar Bjoerndalen.

In the end, Alley came to her senses.

Hungary claimed their first gold medal at a Winter Olympics by pulling off a stunning victory in the men's 5,000 meters relay on Thursday after a fall cost South Korea a place on the podium.

The Netherlands, who did not make the final, were the most surprised as they collected the bronze after setting a world record of 4 minutes, 3.471 seconds to win the B final.
