United States skater Chen makes history with six quads

United States skater Chen makes history with six quads

Some of the top men's figure skaters can already call themselves medalists at these Games. He then traveled to Russian Federation and won his first Grand Prix.

All three USA skaters finished in the top 24, meaning they will compete in Saturday's free skate. With 111.68 points, he's four points clear of second place. A quad Salchow at the beginning and the most basic quad toe-triple toe combo were the anchors for an exact and exquisite performance that had the house still reverberating when Chen came out to warm up.

Notes: "Everyone thinks that Karen Chen is my sister".

Both Shiffrin and Chen were the big stars coming into these games, and neither are done with their Olympics.

Buzz about Rippon: In this third try to make his Olympic team, Rippon, succeeded. Melissa Block, NPR News, at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

"I want to get another Olympic medal outside the team event".

PRIME TIME PLUS: NBC decided this year to air its Olympic telecast at the same time across the country, and that paid off for West Coast viewers in the US with Thursday's competition in Korea.

Chen landed quads in his practice skate before the men's free skate on Friday.

Notes: On being a gay athlete, Rippon has said, "I was recently asked in an interview what it's like to be a gay athlete in sports".

"I had to wake up at 4 o'clock this morning", Zhou said. "Lots of hard work but usually done with better eyebrows".

Zhou was distraught about finishing ninth at the worldwide de France Grand Prix when falling on four quadruple jumps over two days.

Chen was a no-show at the US figure skating press conference Tuesday, no doubt not keen on being bombarded with questions by American reporters. So he stayed in the game, won the world title, lost it to Fernandez, then won it back previous year.

"That is my favorite position to compete in", Hanyu admitted.

Reportedly Hanyu intends to donate them to children in Pyeongchang and Gangneung.

"I think that after having such a disastrous short program and being so, so low in the rankings, lower than nearly ever, it allowed me to completely forget about results and just completely focus on enjoying myself out on the ice", said Chen, who won bronze with the U.S.in the team event. Yuzuru Hanyu is trying to become the first male figure skater in 66 years to repeat as Olympic champion. None of that will predict for sure that you will win the Olympic title.

Sitting just below Hanyu in mere mortal territory, although exceptional, is Spain's Javier Fernandez, who trains alongside Hanyu. But the time off the ice boosted his mental strength, according to his coach Brian Orser.

"My narrative is very different", the Torontonian said in an interview before the Olympics.

He also helped Canada win the team silver in 2014, but in his own navel-gazing that followed, the 10-time national champion realized that his outlook had "skewed his reality". Not clear. In a high-flying sport decided by split seconds, though, her condition is valuable information. Producers showed a wider sweep of Olympic events on the network, while letting people who wanted to see an extended look at figure skating have the chance on cable. Not after that short program.

Chen finally smiled when his numbers were read. It's that in the 66 years since then that only two men have even tried. Watch how the men take off from one foot and make four full rotations before landing.

Adam Rippon competes in his short program at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 on February 16, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea. He was reportedly dealing with injuries to his ankles, but won the 2018 Four Continents Championships in January. He was fourth in Sochi.

One absence from the Olympic competition will be Yuzuru Hanyu's trademark Winnie the Pooh doll that serves as a tissue box and a totem of good luck. He finished with a career-best - by far - 98.93 for fifth.

There is a bit of intrigue before the competition begins. But that's about to change when it mattered most.

So will Rippon, although he knows he doesn't have enough fireworks in his long program to contend for a medal. He's been surpassed in technical ability by teenagers throwing multiple quads, but he consistently receives high artistic marks.
