Immediately after the men's short program, the team event continued with a pairs skating short program.

Figure Skating kicked off at the 2018 Winter Olympics with the Team Event in PyeongChang, South Korea.

He'll compete next at the men's individual event next Friday. Whether you're an avid skating fan or in need a quick catch-up since your last check-in, here's what you need to know about the figure skaters of Team USA and some of the other big names of winter's most elegant sport. They trailed only the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation pair of Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov, who scored 80.92 on a commanding skate.

Shoma Uno of Japan took the top spot in the men's short program, followed by Alexei Bychenko of Israel in second and Patrick Chan of Canada in third. "It's been four years since I've been here".

He added: "I am the type of skater that takes time, since I've gotten older, to warm up and to get up to the quads and get comfortable in competition".

Her short program music, "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" composed by Michel Legrand, was a tribute to her mother, who passed away previous year. "Right now, all I can do is try to analyze what I did wrong, let it go and move on". It's not the best start I wanted, but I have the support of my teammates. "And again, I let them down but I think that they'll be able to pull through". "That's the best thing abou tthe team event".

Cha Jun-whan in the men's singles also finished 6th to bring five points and the pairs team of Kim Kyu-eun and Kam Kang-chan and the ice dance duo Min Yu-ra and Alexander Gamelin earned one point and two points, respectively. All of the mistakes that I did.

Nathan Chen was probably the most hyped up and highly anticipated men's figure skating talent going into the Olympic competition. "I just love the team aspect of it". Not in terms of nerves, I just wasn't thinking about the right things technically.

Uber has settled a lawsuit alleging that it ripped off self-driving auto technology from Google's autonomous vehicle division. Kalanick released a statement in which he was not almost as conciliatory as the man who succeeded him in Uber's top job.


"I think we have a pretty good shot of getting on the podium", Chen said.

Married couple Alexa Scimeca Knierim and Chris Knierim helped make up for Chen's poor performance by turning in a near-flawless routine in the pairs short program.

Figure skating traditionally runs well into the night at the Olympics, but North American prime time television demands has it finished by the early afternoon in South Korea, throwing skaters' schedules topsy-turvy.

It's hard to believe that the 2018 Olympic Winter Games are upon us! "We strategically planned out the next few days". They receive points based on their finish - so margin of victory doesn't matter - with the top five teams advancing to the free skate. "We planned it all out". As the two-time and reigning US champion, the young phenom is changing the face of men's figure skating.

"It is my first time coming to the Olympics but I wasn't as anxious as I thought." said the 21-year-old.

They all had a readily available excuse: early-morning starts. "I also got about three hours of sleep before the competition, so it was fine". After Kristi Yamaguchi won gold in 1992, at least one Asian-American figure skater has competed in every Olympic since then. American phenom Nathan Chen, considered a favourite for gold in the individual event, fell once and popped a quad jump to score 80.61. Watch for 18-year-old Maame Biney in the women's 500m, a race that's an all-out sprint to the finish.

"It was important to do a strong short program, a season's best", said Morozov. The 2014 Olympian was clean, landing a triple Axel, quad toe, and triple Lutz-triple toe.

"She's so inspiring. Before nationals, I sat down at a little café with her and we chatted for a little bit, which was extremely helpful", she recalled of their meetup at Bean Scene Cafe in their mutual hometown of Fremont.
