Olympic team figure skating event wraps up

Olympic team figure skating event wraps up

Skaters from Canada struck gold in figure skating's team event at the 2018 Winter Olympics on Sunday evening, while the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation earned silver.

Canada took home the gold, its first of the Games and fifth medal overall, with the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation winning the silver.

Could you have scripted it any better? In the latter, Norway's Simen Hegstad Krueger pulled off an incredible comeback in the skiathlon: Despite crashing and falling in the race's early stages and dropping into last, he roared back to finish first in the 15-kilometer race, giving Norway its first gold and eighth medal already of these Games.

But wait, before we go: can we just observe how Team Canada erupts with excitement after a skater from another team lands a triple axel? He fell on a triple axel, put a hand down on a second, but still pulled together a season-high score.

They might have deemed their moves too sexy for the Olympics, but the Canadian duo still grabbed gold after amending their sultry routine. The gold medal was Canada's.

Chan, Virtue, Moir and pairs skaters Eric Radford and Meagan Duhamel are all competing in what will likely be their final Olympics and had targeted gold in the team event, knowing they could give each other a golden send off. Barring complete catastrophe, that title will be theirs outright after the ice dance competition. "When we step on the ice it's our moment, and we need to enjoy it, and then we get off and enjoy it as a team". I didn't even know what to think. The reigning world champion from Stoneham, Que., Blouin was second behind American Jamie Anderson, who scored 83.00 on her first run.

Jaitley said GDP growth under UPA rule in 2012-13 was 5.3% - the lowest in recent years - and it was 6.3% in the following year. He said, anti-evasion measures will help more collection of tax.

As did the team bronze medal, of course.

"At the end of the day, a medal's a medal and I'm going to hold this medal tight to me and it's going to be as good as the individual event", Chan told him. I'm not at the top individually anymore, but this team made me see the positive in my skating and believe in myself.

"I was very nervous because I wanted to skate well and I did", added the freshly-minted European champion. The neighbors up north have a tight-knit figure skating team who care more about the entire group going home with gold than any individual member. Instead, skating to Jeff Buckley's haunting "Hallelujah" the 27-year-old from Toronto laid down a performance that all but clinched gold for the Canadians, landing two huge quadruple jumps en route to earning a first-place score of 179.75 points.

If you've heard of ice dancing before, you're likely to have heard of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, who represent Canada. "There's so much to tell and we're trying to tell that a little more physically than anything". That's tied for the most-ever for people in their sport. "It's quite a handsome thing".

"I mean, it's so emotional and so layered and so nuanced that you feel the spectrum of emotions". He looked up at his mom and his dad and his girlfriend, who were in the crowd, who all saw his greatest Olympic moment. "It's hard to really explain the honor it is to have an Olympic medal".

"Aah", Chan sighed, still smiling.
