South Korea finished ninth after four short programs of the figure skating team event Sunday at the ongoing PyeongChang Olympics.

Japan and Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation both finished third with the outstanding performances by Shoma Uno and Evgenia Tarasova/Vladimir Morozoc, who topped the men's and pair's competition respectively. After taking some time away from competition to address Scimeca-Knierim's life-threatening gastrointestinal condition, the pair earned their second national title in January of 2018 to make their first Olympic team.

Choi's ranking added five points to the country's total of 13 points. This will also be the night that the team figure skating event medals will be awarded. Keep an eye on her jumping ability.

Skating to "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas, the three-time world champion from Toronto fell on both his quadruple toe loop and triple Axel to score 81.66, putting him in third in the men's short program.

"Honestly, I have so much energy and inspiration right now that I could do the long program for everybody in the whole event", he said. "I'm really ecstatic that they'll be there every step of the way".

"Definitely not a representation of who I am and what I can do". "A lot of families invest everything and a lot of moms devote everything to their kids' careers".

Miyahara won gold at 2017 Skate America, which puts her on the radar for the Olympic games. NBC (live stream) will broadcast these events.

The number is far behind their best score of 61.97 set a year ago due to problems caused by Min's untied costume. Only one day is complete but Canadian figure skating fans need to be ecstatic that Canada has 17 points, and leading the United States by three points (14 points) and Japan and the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation (13 points).

Stephen Gottlieb: The Nunes Memo And Trump's Disloyalty
Kelly says the Democratic memo isn't as clean as the GOP one, which is suggesting that it may face redactions . Nunes' sites are dialed in on what he calls the "second phase" of his inquiry, he recently told Fox News .

Patrick Chan, a three-time world champion who is Canada's pride, was empathetic when asked what he made of Chen's stumbles. Quickly becoming one of the most familiar faces of American winter sports, 18-year-old Chen is perhaps America's best hope for figure skating gold in PyeongChang.

Dancing to a Latin mix of "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi, "My All" by Mariah Carey and "Mujer Latina" by Thalia, Min and Gamelin went through pattern dances, footwork and lifts during the 2:58 program. "I think I was a little too excited". He completed five quadruple jumps in competition, which made him "the first man in global skating history to land five quadruple jumps in one 4 1/2-minute program", The Washington Post reports. "I had that panic in the back of my mind".

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.

But she said it was fortunate that they experienced such a costume problem in the team event, not in the individual one slated for February 19-20.

After all, the 2018 US Olympic Team is the most diverse winter team on record with 10 African Americans and 11 Asian Americans, according to the US Olympic Committee.

"It was insane because the second we stepped on the ice and the fans started to scream", said Min, who was born in the United States. "Hearing her talk about her experience and what she enjoyed the most and how she was able to prepare and stay focused, I feel like I really benefited from that and I'm really thankful for it".

"I'll use this to learn from it for the rest of the Olympics", he said. Sun says what's happening in figure skating could reflect diversity in general in the US.

"Before the score was announced, the crowd started roaring and yelling". He said he needs some time to go over his mistakes so he doesn't repeat them. "For the individual event next week, we'll tie it up tight and try to get it".
