PEYONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — American Jamie Anderson won her country's second gold medal at the Pyeongchang Games, taking the women's slopestyle snowboarding amid blustery conditions. Anderson is the first woman to win multiple gold medals in women's snowboarding at the Olympics. The win comes a day after teenager Red Gerard won the men's slopestyle for the first U.S. gold medal.

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — The United States has grabbed the bronze in the team skating competition, edging Italy. Mirai Nagasu has become the first American woman and third overall to land a triple axel in the Olympics, accomplishing the rare feat in the women's free skate at the team competition. Canada clinched the gold before the final discipline, finishing just ahead of the Russians.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Frank Reich (ryk) is the new head coach of the Indianapolis Colts after serving as offensive coordinator on the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl-winning team. The hiring came five days after Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels accepted the job, only to back out hours later. Reich first became an offensive coordinator with the 2014 San Diego Chargers and spent two seasons there before joining Doug Pederson's staff in Philadelphia in 2016.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Alex Bowman and Denny Hamlin will start from the front row for Sunday's Daytona 500. Bowman won the pole in his qualifying debut as the official driver of the No. 88 Chevrolet, talking over for the just-retired Dale Earnhardt Jr. The rest of the field will be decided by the Twin-125s later this week.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Ted Potter Jr. has earned his first PGA victory since a broken ankle threatened to end his career. Potter outplayed world No. 1 Dustin Johnson while closing with a 3-under 69 to capture the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Potter finished at 17-under 270 and earned $1,332,000, nearly half of his career earnings going into the week.
