US speed skater Erin Jackson won the women's 500m gold medal at the Winter Olympics in a time of 37.04 on Feb 13.

Jackson almost missed competing in the 500m at the Olympics after she slipped during US qualifying trials, but her teammate and friend Brittany Bowe gave up her own spot to ensure the world No 1 was able to go to Beijing -- and it paid off.

After the race, Jackson said the pair embraced: "She hugged me, said she is really proud of me, and I just said a lot of thank yous."
