TBT: The US Men's Heterosexual Figure Skating Team Take The Ice

US picks Nathan Chen for team event short program in PyeongChang

PyeongChang marks Tennell's first Olympics.

"Hi everyone", the three-time world champion says to the gaggle of media here, grinning. Then back on the bus, back to the rink, and prepare for the 10 a.m. competition start. Jumps aren't allowed at all in an ice dancing routine, and lifts can not go above the male partner's head.

It debuted just four years ago; before that, all figure skating events were individual competitions (in men's, women's, ice dance and pairs). But he wasn't the only one. "And again, I let them down but I think that they'll be able to pull through". "But we're not in control of that".

Chan finished with a score of 81.66, well off his season's best short program score of 94.43.

Japan's Shoma Uno fell once but landed a quad-triple toe combo and took top spot with 103.25 points.

The three-time former world champion was in good company, as American gold medal hope Nathan Chen also slipped up. The Russian squad is widely seen as a medal threat in this event, having won gold in the team event the first time it was contested in 2014.

Coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics begins Thursday night, with one of the most popular events: figure skating.

"I had 20 minutes on my bed laying down watching 'Friends, '" Chan said of his brief break back at the athletes village.

Joining Tennell on the women's team is 18-year-old Karen Chen, the 2017 National Champion. "We'll train for it, we'll start practicing maybe more often in the morning", he said.

Hanyu, who won Japan its first gold medal in men's singles skating at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, was the odds-on favorite leading into this season to be the first repeat victor in the men's division since American Dick Button did so in 1948 and 1952. But boasting a veteran team that is solid across all four disciplines, the Canadians arrived in South Korea as the world No. 1-ranked team. With their short program and Chan's third place short program, Team Canada leads the competition with 17 points. Duhamel did fall in a throw quad salchow during the free skate, but the pair made a spectacular comeback and proceeded to remain in sync and nailed every lift, spin and jump. I felt really trained, in shape. "We still needed to come out here and perform for the team". "With the time change, it's not a big deal, I just need to recalculate everything in my head". "There is just a great energy building around the entire team".

Suzaki and Kihara scored a season-best 57.42 points in the pairs short program won by Olympic Athletes from Russia Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov, who scored 80.92.

All agree that one benefit of the team event is the cheering squad at rinkside.

When Duhamel was running through visualization exercises before taking the ice Friday morning, and was trying to picture the flawless skate, she laughingly said she couldn't help but picture a wildly cheering Moir in the background.

"I also thought I'd mess up, I was anxious, and just thought that I'd fail too". That's partly because skates are heavy, but it's also because figure skaters have to balance the energy they put into their jump with the energy they put into their rotation. I was a little tight in the upper body. He was like the annoying little brother. "I wouldn't be surprised if, in six, seven years, you see the best and brightest trying quintuple jumps in competition". But pretty much Chan - who's parted with too many coaches to count - is doing this on his own. Moir wrapped him in a huge hug.

"We all play sports, and it's kind of fun to watch other people play them", 9-year-old Evelyn Link said, motioning at three friends gathered around her.

None of the four others in their practice group, American Vincent Zhou included, took advantage of the session, mindful that a second opportunity would follow in the afternoon.
