Here are a few highlights of what the bisexual and lesbian Olympic athletes achieved in Pyeong Chang in 2018

Ireen Wüst from the Netherlands wins her 11th Winter Olympics medal, making her the most decorated speed skater of all time.

Australian cross country skiier Barbara Jezeršek finished 33rd in the 10 meters free and 39th in the 7.5 meters + 7.5 meters skiathon. The Aussie cross country team achieved their best ever Team Spring result this year.

Belle Brockhoff, the Australian snowboarder, finished the snowboard cross in 11th place. She reinjured the ACL she had previously torn during the trials, and recovered just in time to compete.

Austrian ski jumper Daniela Iraschko-Stolz finished up in 6th place for the normal hill. She had won gold in the World Cup in Slovenia earlier this year.

Cheryl Maas, a snowboarder from the Netherlands, finished 23rd in the slopestyle and 20th in the big air.

Brittany Bowe won bronze medal along with the rest of her U.S. teammates in team pursuit. Individually, she finished 4th in the 1,000 meters, 5th in the 1,500 meters and 5th in the 500 meters. Bowe has also been selected as a finalist for Female Olympic Athlete of the Games for the Team USA Awards.
