Winter vomiting bug’ hits Pyeong Chang ahead of Olympics but guests stay cool

Day 2 of the team figure skating events include the ice dance short dance, the pairs free skate and the women's short program.

His teammates picked him up in more ways than one.

Despite some stumbles Friday in the Olympic figure skating event, the US finds themselves in good shape after the first day of the event.

"It's hard for figure skaters to think outside, and not think of individual performances", Chan said. "I think we felt that energy throughout the entire program". This will also be the night that the team figure skating event medals will be awarded. The United States sits in second spot with 14 points, with Japan and the Russians tied at 13 points.

But she said it was fortunate that they experienced such a costume problem in the team event, not in the individual one slated for February 19-20. I was kind of ahead of myself in terms of how to land the jump, how to get out.

"I definitely let the rest of the team down", he said, "so I feel bad in that regard".

Duhamel and Radford, competing in the pairs short, earned a 76.57 score with a clean performance in Pyeongchang. The bronze medalist at the grand prix final fell twice to finish eighth among the 10 skaters. "I just need to recalculate everything in my head".

"Anything between 75 and 80 is a really high score for us, so we're happy with that", said Duhamel. "We were prepared for anything".

Canada was favored to win gold going into the event after taking silver four years ago.


Figure skating is not all about the jumps.

Chen - who is the only figure skater to come to the Olympics undefeated this season - is famous for his incredible quadruple flips, which he normally executes with flawless precision, but today, after a shaky quadruple flip and a double quad, he fell on a triple axel, which can be seen around:20 in the video below.

"When I competed my Olympic short, my adrenaline was through the roof", Hamilton said in an interview after a men's practice earlier this week at the Gangneung Ice Arena, where he watched Americans Nathan Chen and Adam Rippon train. "I could stand on Olympic ice as she had believed in me and waited for me", she said with tears in her eyes. It happens, you take it as you go and you move on and use it.

"I came here to enjoy the Games".

Not even a sublime skate from Tarasova and Morozov could make up for Kolyada's problems. He fell on the triple axel jump, which hurt his score.

Shoma Uno laid down the only standout men's performance, filling in for reigning Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu quite capably.

The 27-year-old Chan tumbled on his opening quadtoe loop and again on a triple axel.

"It is my first time coming to the Olympics and I thought I would be very anxious, but I wasn't as anxious as I thought, and I'm satisfied", said Uno.

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".
