Trying to find out if the figure skating competition at the 2022 Winter Olympics has ended?
No! It most certainly has not.
If the sheer excellence witnessed in Friday’s short program was any indication, we are in store for one of the most riveting pairs free skate events known to man.
The top two teams both broke the world record score in the short program.
Sui Wenjing and Han Cong lead — as they go for gold in their homeland — but only by 0.16 points over the Russian Olympic Committee’s Yevgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov. Scores in the free skate can reach the high 150s, meaning these teams are on a level playing field.
If you’ve reached this page after 9 a.m. ET on Feb. 19, well then, yes, figure skating competition has ended. You can catch the non-competition skating gala live at 11 p.m. ET on Feb. 19 or watch full-event replays of the men’s, women’s, pairs, ice dance and team events at NBCOlympics.com.
