Team USA’s Jessie Diggins took home bronze in cross-country skiing on Tuesday, clinching America’s first-ever sprint medal.

The 30-year-old clocked a time of 3:12:84 to beat out United States teammate Rosie Brennan and secure a place on the podium. Jonna Sundling and Maja Dahlqvis of Sweden captured gold and silver in the medal event.

With Tuesday’s third-place finish, Diggins becomes the first American woman to win an Olympic cross-country skiing medal in an individual event.

Diggins is no stranger to making history, securing the first-ever Team USA gold medal in cross country skiing alongside teammate Kikkan Randall in PyeongChang.

The American’s bronze medal comes days after finishing sixth in the 15km event.
