The United States won three gold medals at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, B.C. on Thursday and now leads the medal count with 14 overall.

The U.S. also set a new record for the most gold medals ever won on a single day during the Winter Games.

Lindsey Vonn took the gold at the women's Olympic downhill, despite an injured shin.

"I got the gold medal that I came here to get. And now I'm just going to attack every day, with no regrets and no fear," Vonn said." And, I mean, I'm just happy with one. Anything else from here on out is a bonus."

Meanwhile, on the ice track, speedskater Shani David broke his own record to win the 1000-meters.

"It's my moment, it's my party," he said. "Like the girl says she can cry if she wants to -- I can party if I want to. It's my party, I can celebrate, I can dance, I can do whatever I want. I earned it."

Finally, snowboarder Shaun White showed off a bold new move to claim top prize in the men's halfpipe.

"It feels good," White said. "Heavy lies the crown."
