Team USA Wins Figure Skating Team Event Bronze Medal

Figure skating pair change their lift because it's too sexy for the Olympics

Gabrielle Daleman finished third to snag eight points for Team Canada.

"I worked so hard for this moment", said Rippon, who was added to the team by the USA committee in January ahead of Ross Miner.

American Bradie Tennell set a season best; her score of 68.94 put her in fifth place, a mere 0.01 points behind Japan's Satoko Miyahara.

The 15-year-old from Russian Federation landed seven triples, including a triple Lutz-triple loop combination in her Olympic debut, earning a personal best score of 158.08.

Sakamoto under-rotated her opening triple flip to "Amelie", but picked up steam from there and did a respectable job in her Olympic debut.

The pair won ice-dance gold at the 2010 Games before claiming silver in 2014.

Kostner's graceful performance was highlighted by a series of exquisite spins.

They skated to Roxanne from Moulin Rouge at this year's games and had already adjusted the program to be a little less, um, let's say suggestive. And it was well worth the wait. Yay for US figure skating medals! His only mistake was an underrotation call on his triple Lutz.

"We knew that taking the ice at an Olympic Games again meant that we needed to have a different style", Virtue told The Toronto Star last week. "It was weird. But I think we'll be more ready, ready to compete as much as necessary".

"I'm feeling so happy", Anderson said.

It sure would be extra nice for Patrick Chan, one of the most accomplished figure skaters in history, the three-time world champion who is missing only Olympic gold from his extensive hardware collection, after winning silver in Sochi.

The men's free skate kicked off Sunday night's events. Italy are breathing down their necks in fourth, though.

Daleman, whose win secured the gold for Team Canada even before Virtue and Moir stepped onto the ice, was full of gratitude for her teammates.

But Virtue and Moir weren't willing to give it up altogether - their new move was more or less the same, but Virtue just lingered for a shorter time when straddling Moir.

"We're obviously thrilled to be Olympic Team Champions".

"We're proud of ourselves in that we've talked about this since Sochi", said Moir.

"When the anthem came I still sang the wrong lyric", added Meagan Duhamel. Don't want things getting too hot!

After finishing a disappointing fourth at the Skate Canada grand prix event past year, Chan - who has said he would retire after Pyeongchang - realised he needed a change. As Canadians, we were born on the ice. "I think we really appreciate one another ..." It was the part when Virtue's crotch appeared to be too close to Moir's face that raised some concern. They told the outlet this year's roster of contenders is "very strong".

"I feel really great".

The 27-year-old Chan, who had struggled with his jumps in the team event's short programme, landed the first two quads of his free skate. "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". Ice dancers Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev, were the only holdovers from that Sochi squad. They receive points based on their finish - so margin of victory doesn't matter - with the top five teams advancing to the free skate.
