Ad Feedback

The U.S. picked up a handful of medals at Thursday's Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, B.C. but not the one most Americans were hoping to win.

The U.S. lost the gold medal to Canada in women's hockey and settled for the silver.

Meanwhile, 17-year old U.S. champ Rachael Flatt finished with a personal best in ladies figure skating. But the gold medal went to Kim Yu-na of South Korea.

"Truly I still can't believe that I did what I wanted to do at the Olympics," Yu-na said. "I have been dreaming about this moment and can't believe that this is not a dream anymore."

Americans still lead the medal count with 32.

On Friday, the undefeated U.S. team takes on Finland in men's hockey.

This is the final weekend of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Closing ceremonies are scheduled to take place Sunday night.

The next Winter Olympics will be held in Sochi, Russia in 2014.
