"It's my first Olympic medal, so it's a little check next to that", said Parrot.

And in luge, Calgary's Sam Edney finished sixth in his final Olympic men's singles race.

"That flawless race where you get into a flow and just fly to the finish, it doesn't always happen and it didn't happen today", Bloemen said.
