An American Man Actually Won A Luge Medal At The Olympics

Mazdzer put together two phenomenal runs to climb from fourth to third in runs 3 and 4 to win the silver medal in men's singles luge - the first men's singles luge medal in US history.

Mazdzer finished 13th in two previous Winter Games, so this was quite a step up.

Gleirscher moved to the top of the standings with a composed final run but German Loch needed only to complete an error-free effort at the Olympic Sliding Center to be assured of his golden hat-trick.

As an 18-year-old, West had finished 22nd in the luge men's singles at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. His wobbly final round opened the door for Austrian David Gleirscher, 23, to grab the gold in his Olympic debut. And when it comes to men's singles luge, Mazdzer will always be the first. Johannes Ludwig of Germany won bronze.

Once ranked No. 3 in the world as recently as the 2015-16 season, Mazdzer hadn't medaled since - until the Pyeonchang Games. Mazdzer, meanwhile, broke the course record set by Loch moments earlier to move into second.

Notes: Taylor Morris, the third American competing in men's singles, finished 18th overall with a cumulative time of 3:12.547.

Gleirscher claimed the title with an aggregate time of three minutes 10.702 seconds, just 0.026 seconds ahead of runner-up American Chris Mazdzer, as snow fell in flurries at the mountainside track.

Long itself an underdog - if not an outright underachiever - USA Luge now has its first medal on the men's side, joining five previous medals won either in doubles competition or in women's singles.
