The Super Bowl’s in the books and the 2022 Winter Olympics are into the home stretch with a week full of competitions that will see loads of big names compete for medals before the Closing Ceremony in Beijing.
Whether it’s Mikaela Shiffrin‘s quest for her next medal, Nathan Chen‘s pursuit of an even stronger legacy as the Quad King of figure skating, or Team USA men’s and women’s hockey teams aiming for gold, the end product of two-plus weeks’ worth of drama is far from complete.
Remember to watch all the action on the NBC family of networks and online via Peacock Premium.
Day 11 of the Winter Olympics What To Watch: 2/15/2022
Mikaela Shiffrin enjoyed her test runs enough to give the women’s downhill a go tonight, and we know that anything she does is capable of gold.
Oh, did we forget to mention Kamila Valieva? The 15-year-old Russian is allowed to skate despite testing positive for a banned substance on Christmas, a court ruled Monday. The test result was reported by the lab last week, and she is still subject to a disciplinary process. More on that complicated matter here.
Also keep your eye on the slopes for the women’s snowboard big air final and women’s freeski slopestyle final.
