Between the time you happily left your office on Friday and begrudgingly made your way back on Monday, a whole lot of stuff happened at the Winter Olympics. And you know there’s no way you kept up with all of it. Hey, we’re not sure we did, either. But here’s a collection of headlines, photos and stuff for you to click-right or swipe-left through because you’re really not interested in working.

Norway’s Kjetil Jansrud competes in men’s downhill training at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Jeongseon, South Korea, Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018. He was the first American man in Olympic history to medal in luge singles, finishing behind gold medalist David Gleirscher of Austria.

The United States now sits fifth in the ranking of total medals, having won a gold and a silver medal. Germany owns the most gold medals (three), but Norway is in the lead in total medals with eight.
