Feb 10 Olympics: Figure skating continues, medals awarded at men's snowboarding final

Heading into the figure skating team event, the expectation is that the men's and ice dancing entries would carry the team, and pairs and women needed to just be steady.

The pairs free skate will also be streamed online at 11:40 p.m. ET / 8:40 p.m. PT. Alexa Scimeca-Knierim and Chris Knierim finished a season-best skate on Thursday during the pairs short program, and will be back to represent the U.S.in the free program. She earned a short program score of 75.10 and earned 9 points for Team Italy, who qualified for the free skate. Of the 10 teams participating in the event, just the top five move on to the free skate performances. They provide in-depth coverage of all things figure skating.

Making her Olympic debut in the team event of the 2018 PyeongChang Games Sunday, Tennell landed every jump in her short program - from her opening triple Lutz/triple toe combination to her triple loop - in a sparkly red dress that seemed to underscore her sense of belonging on her sport's biggest stage. The athletes are judged as usual, but standings are determined by points. (Russia, whose name is not recognized at these Winter Games, is the defending gold medalist in figure-skating's team event).

Figure skating: US sensation Tennell cool as ice

After all the focus on the combined team from South and North Korea at the start of the tournament, the favorites in the women's hockey get underway later Sunday with the USA against Finland and Canada up against the "Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation". Their short dance received a level two for their rhumba and a level three for step sequences, but they receive level four for their twizzles and rotational lift.

Team OAR/Russia's super star and Olympic medal favorite, Yevgenia Medvedeva, notched the highest score ever recorded in the ladies' short program to capture 10 points for the team. "We've been training so hard, and to be out on Olympic ice for the first time, we are really happy with it", Maia said following their skate. "The performance felt great, and we felt good about what we did out there", Alex added. The married couple again finished fourth.
