Winter Olympics 2018: Figure Skating Schedule
Many people all over the world tune in to watch figure skating at the Winter Olympics. The details you need to follow the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang are provided below.
The figure skating events at the 2018 Winter Olympics will be broken down into five separate categories: men’s and women’s singles, pairs, ice dance, and the team event.
The two parts of single skating are the short programme and the free skate. During the performance, the participant must jump, spin, stride, etc.
Throw jumps, overhead lifts, pair spins, and death spirals are just some of the tricks men and women can pull off in pair skating.
In ice dancing, a pair moves together over the ice while performing complicated movements in time to the music. No skater is allowed to be apart from their partner for more than 5 seconds.
Like a gymnastics team competition, the Team Event features competitions in each of the individual events.
Each country sends its finest skaters from the aforementioned categories to compete for the honour of representing their country.
NBC, NBCSN, and the rest of the NBC Universal network will air coverage of the Games.
NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app will both provide live and on-demand streaming of all Olympic events.
