And yes, they feel badly that they can't share it with some of their teammates on the 17-member Canadian squad.

Sakamoto skated a relatively clean program but admitted she was forced to chase points after under-rotating a triple flip at the start of her skate.

Marystown native Kaetlyn Osmond is an Olympic gold medallist.

Laurie Blouin of Canada finished second, with Finland's Enni Rukajarvi third.

Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev, Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation who finished third, also struggled with the element, receiving 4.57 points. The team was Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue, a pair whose last names read in my head like "more virtue".

Canadian skaters Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir brought some fire to the ice at the Winter Olympics with their eye-catching Moulin Rouge routine, featuring a version of the Police's "Roxanne".

"I think we liked that it made a statement, and it was different", Virtue said of the original lift, via the Canadian Press. From the end of the first day through to the end of the last, this team led. Australia's Matt Graham took silver with 82.57 while Daichi Hara captured bronze with 82.19. He's won six straight World Cup season titles and is on track for a seventh.

"This is their first time, to compete in an Olympic Games, so they have to approach it as they see fit".

"So to become the first American (female figure skater) to land a triple axel at the Olympic Games is historical, and no one can take that away from me".

Japan settled for fifth place in the figure skating team event on Monday at Gangneung Ice Arena with a final score of 50 points. Chan, who won silver in the team and men's singles events at Sochi 2014, is a three-time world champion but has never won Olympic gold until now.

Olympic figure skater Joannie Rochette wrote on Twitter at the time: "He had gold on a silver platter". McMorris took third after putting up a score of 85.20 in his second run.

"I couldn't have done it without the support of my team mates", Chan told reporters.

Brooke Voigt of Fort McMurray, Alta., finished 21st and Spencer O'Brien of Courtenay, B.C., was 22nd.

On Thursday, Morris and Lawes earned a hard-fought 6-4 win over Matt and Becca Hamilton of the United States in the evening draw after dropping their opener 9-6 to Norway's Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten. "I did the best I could and left no rock unturned".

"And at that moment, I wanted to stop the music and get off, but I still had my whole program ahead of me".

Adams says "we're not going to comment on the issue because it's an issue we're dealing with".

"We are a lovely team that has been competing together for so many years".

Despite her elegant performance, the Moscow native still found room for improvement. That clinched the bronze medal for the United States.
