Canada wins Olympic figure skating gold, USA grabs bronze

Anderson showed she's tops in women's slopestyle, defending her title from the 2014 Games and becoming the first female snowboarder to win two Olympic golds. "I think we really appreciate one another ..." "I mean, Patrick Chan, you could make the argument he's the best skater that ever was ..."

Chan had effectively been given permission to fail.

He's won three world championships. Chan took a year off after Sochi, while Virtue and Moir took a two-year hiatus. "I would definitely support that", Moir said. They wanted their best athletes to rest for the individual events. "I think that was on the athletes' shoulders".

Fast-forward to Monday's gold-medal showdown. He placed first with a score of 179.75 in the men's free program, keeping the veteran Canadian team in first place and setting the stage for Daleman.

Daleman was one of three clean skates in the women's field. They're celebrating and are eager for their favorite event: Ice dancing free dance (a part of the figure skating category). They began to prepare accordingly. Quads had become the name of the game, as epitomized by American teenager Nathan Chen's record five in the long program at the 2017 U.S. Nationals. It wasn't a flawless skate, but as Radford put it, his most complex jumps, a pair of quads, "were incredible". Over the course of the free skating segment of the competition, the nations each have the option of substituting two of their short program skaters to skate the free portion.

"I told him to emotionally detach!"

"We felt like we were too casual. For him to go out there and do that, with that pressure - that's incredible". "I really can't wait to see what happens in 2018".

It was a study in teamwork, in a sport that's not normally known for it.

Pernilla Winberg, Sweden: The winger notched three points, including a pair of goals, in Sweden's 8-0 blowout over Team Korea.

For the 106 years prior, figure skating was strictly a solitary endeavour. Skaters (and ice dancers!) had performed across all four rink disciplines - ladies, mens, pairs, and ice dance.

In any case, the pair will go into the final short dance event next Monday on 10 team points, ahead of the United States of America on 9 and the Olympic athletes of Russian Federation on 8.

But it threatened to erode his confidence for the final skate. "It's pretty special to be able to have teammates like that and share this experience with them".

"We've toured together a lot, we've grown up together. If there's good Canadians that come up, that speaks volumes to me, more than our medal count".

"Who gets to go to the Olympics and stand on an Olympic podium with this group of people?".

The decision was fully justified as Virtue and Moir helped Canada to a gold medal victory.

That racks up the team event score to 27, on top of Patrick Chan's earlier third-place acquittal and second for the pairs team of Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford.

"I do everything in training well, all the elements", Zagitova said.
