Ice Dancing vs Pairs Skating: How to identify these two Olympic Figure Skating Events

A total of ten teams-each comprised of two single skaters (one man and one lady) and two teams (Ice Dance and Pairs)-competed, and the top five will move on to compete in the Free Skate and Free Dance.

Maame Biney already has made history as the first African-American woman to make a US speedskating roster.

Ki Lee, who works at the convenience store at the corner of 55th Street and 45th Avenue, said the South Korean short-track speed skating team has a chance to win some medals. "The seven o'clock practice was a little rough", he said.

A Winter Olympics favorite, figure skating competition starts with men's and pairs' short programs on Thursday.

Torrey Sun, who is a biracial Chinese American, competed in the 1960s when figure skating wasn't very diverse. "I let myself down, and I let the team down".

The Canadian men's hockey team plays the Korean team on February 18 at 5:10 a.m.

Then, they have to sit around a couple of hours until their moment in the spotlight.

Figure skaters Alexa Scimeca Knierim and Chris Knierim performed well in the team pairs short program, and America finished in fourth place in that discipline.

Chan said the early start times were not compatible with the finesse needed to execute quality jumps, adding that it could be particularly hard for Chen, who is known for his numerous quads.

Her teammate, Gabrielle Daleman, was part of the Canadian team that won silver in Sochi. Skating events normally take place in the afternoon or evening. "It's an exciting time for sure for Asian-American men to be so prominently featured in the Olympic sport", said Yamaguchi, who'll be covering figure skating for NBC's digital "Olympic Ice" show.

Three-time world champion Patrick Chan from Canada finished third overall, earning eight points for his country.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wished Canada's athletes good luck in a statement released Friday and said the team's diverse makeup is a reflection of the country. "Ultimately everything feels good right now".

"So we're actually quite motivated to take it on together", Kostner added.

The worst takeaway of the game is that the USA has now gone 21 ends without scoring more than a single point. We don't really have a choice. We can't really ask to move it. "Someone has to compete in the morning and this time it's our turn".

Russians Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov, topped the pairs short program with 80.92, while Germans Aljona Savchenko and Bruno Massot were third with 75.36. Since then, Chan pretty much has been the chaser, except in Canadian events.

"It was a completely new event for all of us", Daleman said.

The men probably didn't anticipate problems, either. The women's and ice dance short-program portions of the team event are on February 11.

Shoma Uno was the only skater to lay down anything resembling a clean program, scoring 103.25 to put Japan in the lead.

"It's a double-edged sword", Chan said of the unusual schedule. Although this was not Chen's primary focus going into the Olympic games, the fall could create more psychological pressure on him going into future performances. "You have to take that into account", he said.
