Day 6 of the Sochi Olympic Games has seen the triumph of the US team swiping all 3 medals in ski freestyle. Meanwhile, a striking retirement of the legendary Russian figure skater Evgeny Plushenko due to back injury caused great grief for fans.

A superb American performance in the men’s slopestyle has earned them three medals, for a combined total of 12 medals, and secured them a fifth place in medal standing.

Poland has managed to secure its second gold, as Justyna Kowalczyk won the women’s 10-kilometer cross-country ski classic.

You might want to look up the word "swiping". A better word is earned but I think you meant "sweeping" .

  


I guess it means kinda "stealing" . A good job anyway. Congrats to the Americans.

This story is only useful for American ego maniacs who believe the country with the most medals at the end of the olympics is better than everyone else. If they weren't so shallow maybe articles like this wouldn't be written.
