The Team Skating events are more than halfway done at the #Winterolympics and topping the list are USA, Canada and Russian Athletes. The ranking is decided on the sums of the scores of four specific events, men’s and ladies’ singles, pairs, ice dances.

Figure skating at the 2018 Winter Olympics is being held at the Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung, South Korea. The five events will take place 9–23 February 2018.

For those who have never watched this ice sport, it is a wonderful combination of creativity, athleticism and discipline as the athletes perform  various acrobatic movements as they skate on the ice to their selected music.

The skaters are judged according to their accuracy and the difficulty of their manoeuvres.

 

I’m betting on Canada to win the team event. The Canadians didn’t win in Sochi, they finished second to the Russians. But this year they have a very strong team – Follow Team Canada on Twitter.

Of course three-time world champions  Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir kept Canada first in the figure skating event and after the pairs, two-time world pairs champs Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford followed their lead.

The team skating event made its Olympic debut to mixed reviews four years ago in Sochi, where Canada captured silver.

Much like golf’s Ryder Cup, the world’s top 10 countries compete in the short program of all four disciplines. The team skating event ends Sunday with the men’s, women’s, and ice dance free programs.
