Watch women's short program team figure skating online

In Pyeongchang, Figure Skating Gets A New Sound Will the addition of lyrics have Olympic figure skating judges singing along?

While Tennell earned a season-high 68.94 points for her performance, it was only good enough, in judges' eyes, to place her fifth among the field of 10 women representing their countries in the team event at Pyeongchang Games.

The pressure was on for Bradie Tennell in her earlier-than-expected Olympic debut Sunday morning, and by all accounts the Carpentersville resident delivered. She finished in fifth place, giving the US six points in the team competition.

Day 2 of the team figure skating events include the ice dance short dance, the pairs free skate and the women's short program. Newly-crowned USA national champion Bradie Tennell will make her Olympic debut in the event.

"It felt like I was doing another program in a practice session", Tennell said. "My parents were in between houses at the time and I just kept begging my mom to go ice skating".

Dead, 4 Injured in Grand Canyon Helicopter Crash
An NTSB report issued in 2004 blamed the pilot's decision to descend too fast and too close to the scenic Grand Wash Cliffs. On its website, Papillon Airways calls itself as "oldest Grand Canyon helicopter sightseeing company".


"The daughter of a single mother who is a nurse, Tennell began skating at the age of two after she had begged her mother to find a rink in the phone book and take her over. I feel like I get more done with my day", she said. "And she took me to go skating". The Shibutani siblings also skated in Sochi, where they finished ninth in ice dance, but this is their first time taking part in the team event at the Games. "It has been a lot of hard work and determination".

With free skates still to come in men's and women's, plus the free dance, Canada now leads the event with 45 points, followed by the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation (39 points) and the United States (36 points).

For many sports fans who tune into figure skating only once every four-year Olympic cycle, Sunday's women's short program offered the first look at Tennell, a 20-year-old from Winfield, Ill., who had no global profile to speak of just six months ago. Team USA is again in position to medal when the event concludes in PyeongChang on February 12.
