Jessie Diggins and Kikkan Randall became the first American cross-country skiers to capture a gold medal by winning the women's team sprint at the Alpensia Cross-Country Centre in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Three times at the Pyeongchang Olympics, Jessie Diggins had made US cross-country skiing history. It was also the first ever gold medal for Team USA in cross-country skiing.

Randall and Diggins beat silver medalist Sweden by.19 seconds.

Bill Koch, who won a silver medal at the 1976 Innsbruck Games, is the only other American to medal in the event.

France coach Deschamps insists PSG can still defeat Real Madrid
Along with scoring a goal on Sunday, he also scored two goals against PSG in UEFA Champions League round of 16 in a 3-1 victory. But such is Real Madrid hunger for glory that a massive slip this season has put his managerial career at Madrid in jeopardy.

The race paired Diggins, who has won more world championship medals than any US cross-country skier in history, with Randall, the veteran whose success made the Americans contenders after years of futility.

The race was the fifth of these Olympics for Diggins, 26.

Randall kept the Americans in the hunt on her final leg, handing over to Diggins for the sixth and final lap which was raced at a furious pace as the lead changed hands several times. They skied their semifinal run in 16 minutes, 22.56 seconds, and finished 0.72 seconds faster than Sweden's Charlotte Kalla and Stina Nilsson.

Randall and Diggins' heat in the semifinals will take off at 11:25 p.m.
