Kikkan Randall and Jessie Diggins became the first American women to EVER medal in cross-country skiing at the Olympics . . . and it was a GOLD medal.  They won the team sprint event by TWO-TENTHS of a second.

Jessie is 26.  Kikkan is 35 and the only MOM on the U.S. Olympic team this year.  She has a 22-month-old son, and this is her FIFTH Olympics, but she’d never medaled before.  The only other time a U.S. skier medaled in cross-country was in 1976.
