Analysis Strategy pays off as Canada takes team figure skating gold

Canada's Kaetlyn Osmond was third.

Imagine stepping onto the ice surface knowing that you can secure your country's first gold medal at the Olympics, no pressure right?

The Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation took silver after a spectacular performance by 15-year-old Alina Zagitova, the European champion, and the United States came away with the bronze.

Canada will compete for an Olympic gold medal after sweeping to an 8-4 victory over Norway in the mixed doubles curling semifinal. "I'm sorry, that's how I'm going to see it, that's how I'm going to enjoy it, and that's for me to decide".

They'll play Switzerland for mixed doubles curling gold on Tuesday.

Monday morning at Gangneung Ice Arena unfolded in dramatic fashion. She is only the third woman to land a triple axel at the Olympic Winter Games after Japan's Midori Ito and Mao Asada.

South Korean freestyle moguls skier Seo Jung-hwa finished 14th in Sunday's final, both her personal best and the top performance by any South Korean female moguls skier.

That the elusive gold medal finally came in the team event, and not the individual competition he coveted for so long, is fine with him. Unlike the blade of a knife, figure skate blades are shaped like a half circle (Inverse suggests thinking of the letter C), so there's a gap between the edges where ice and water pass through. Of the new cases, three are among security staff at a youth training center where most of those who got sick are staying. They took a break from competition after the Sochi Games in 2014, returning in a blaze to win the 2017 World Championship title (their third) ahead of the Olympics.

Chan put in his best skate of the season landing two superb quad toes to open the program. His artistry and higher-scoring elements boosted his mark significantly.

Hanyu and Medvedeva are among the respective favourites in figure skating's blue riband men's and women's events, due to be held on Saturday (February 17) and February 23 respectively. "I just skated with all my heart and just was in the moment completely", said Daleman. The U.S. had a score of 53, while Italy was at 49.

The women's and ice dance free skates are still to come. Yet his almost flawless routine helped the US pull away from Italy, who went into the day only one point behind the U.S. The dramatic routine drips sensuality in a way we're not used to seeing in the ice dancing category.

But with Canada's team gold medal assured, Virtue and Moir tied the record for most Olympic medals won by figure skaters - even after the duo made a decision to adjust their routine, which dominated the 2018 Canadian Skating Nationals in January. Chan was able to recover from two early falls in his routine to win the men's free skate.
