The 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony is tomorrow—have you met Team USA? With a roster that dishes out discipline, character and some serious skills, these are our favorite athletes that make the Winter Games in PyeongChang worth watching!
Seen as the gold-medal favorite in the halfpipe event, this SoCal native has an impressive resume. As the youngest snowboarder to earn a gold medal at the X Games at just 15, and the first female athlete to land back-to-back 1080s (yes, that’s three full revolutions in the air), Kim is a sure bet for victory this year. If she grabs the gold medal at PyeongChang, she’ll set another record as the youngest American to win an Olympic medal in snowboarding. Get it, girl!
Known as one of the world’s best figure skaters, Chen, 18, has had one hell of a year on the ice. Nathan was given the name “Quad King” for being the first skater ever to land five quadruple jumps in a single program—most elite figure skaters can only perfect one or two. Dang dude, talk about flying high!
Introduced to skiing as a two-year-old, Shiffrin was studying videos of her slalom technique by middle school. Needless to say, Shiffrin has had her eye on the prize from a young age. Now at only 22, she’s the youngest Olympic slalom gold medalist ever. Considered “the best technical skier of her generation,” we feel pretty confident Shiffrin will be going for more than the gold this year.
Taking home a bronze medal in 2010 as a brakeman (back of the sled) with teammate Erin Pac, and winning silver as the pilot (in front of the sled) with teammate Lauryn Williams, Taylor has her eye on the prize at PyeongChang. As the first black pilot to win an Olympic medal, the first woman to win medals as both brakeman and pilot, and the first U.S. woman to win two bobsled Olympic medals, Taylor is making some amazing history. Watch out ice, she’s coming for you.
This buzzy brother/sister duo will compete together in the Winter Olympics’ first year of mixed doubles curling, as well as separately on the women’s and men’s teams. If they make it to the gold medal rounds, that means 18 straight days of competition on the ice. Phew! Teamwork makes the dream work, right?
Alpine Skiing, Figure Skating, Ice Hockey, oh my! Time to set your DVR’s, grab that hot cocoa, and get pumped while you watch these U.S. powerhouse athletes lay it all on the line.
February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society. As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.
While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support.
