He may have helped squander the USA team's chances to bring home gold as a result of the poor performance, Daily Beast notes, although he will still be competing individually and has time to reconfigure his mindset.

OAR skaters Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov placed atop the pairs short program standings, with Canadians Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford in second and Aliona Savchenko and Bruno Massot of Germany in third.

The powerhouse Canadian squad, which is expected to challenge the team of Russians for the gold medal, compiled 17 points through the first two disciplines.

Choi's ranking added five points to the country's total of 13 points.

"There's a lot of finesse that needs to happen and the morning isn't the best time for finesse, at least for me", Chan told a news conference.

In the ladies' short program, South Korean Choi jumped a flawless triple lutz and triple toe loop at the beginning of the program, which gave her 10.80 points, followed by a set of fluid spins and step sequences.

American quad wonder Nathan Chen and Russia's European champion Mikhail Kolyada also fell on the first day of action at the Gangneung Ice Arena.

"I'm glad I got the opportunity to come out here, put the programs down, learn from it, but right now, all I can do is try to analyze what I did wrong, and just let it go and move on", he said. So that's definitely how I felt.

Aside from a low catch on the throw triple twist (level one), Miu Suzaki and Ryuichi Kihara landed side-by-side triple Lutzes and a throw triple Salchow in their routine to music from the Yuri on Ice soundtrack.

Two-time defending US champion Nathan Chen landed the Olympics' first-ever quad flip, but later fell during a triple axel attempt and had other issues during his short program at the PyeongChang Games.

Despite some stumbles Friday in the Olympic figure skating event, the USA finds themselves in good shape after the first day of the event.

The number is far behind their best score of 61.97 set previous year due to problems caused by Min's untied costume. Japan and Olympic athletes from Russian Federation are next with 13.

Three-time world champions and former Olympic champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada earned 80.51 to take the lead. He skated off the ice emotionless, the 27-year-old clearly disappointed with a performance that could have knocked his team from gold contention.

Dancing to a Latin mix of "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi, "My All" by Mariah Carey and "Mujer Latina" by Thalia, Min and Gamelin went through pattern dances, footwork and lifts during the 2:58 program. "My mom was in the room, and she looked at me, and she asked, 'Is this it?' And I said, 'Yes, it is.' It was a moment that I will never forget, and I really will cherish forever".

Then they stepped on the Olympic ice to compete, and one by one they stumbled through cringe-worthy short programs. "I had that panic in the back of my mind".

"I think of some other comparisons like the diversity in the student body in college and university campuses, which is different compared to what it was like in the '60s", said Sun, who is now a university administrator.

Rockhold was off to a good start going to the leg kicks, but Romero used this as an opportunity to gauge his opponent's strategy. Romero needed assistance leaving the cage with a badly injured leg and will likely need some time off to recover.

"It was so much fun to be able to be part of the team event in Sochi, to compete as a team and not just as an individual athlete", said Canada's Kaetlyn Osmond, a medal contender in the individual event.

"I think we have a pretty good shot of getting on the podium", Chen said.

Nathan Chen, the American skater many believed was headed to a gold medal in the 2018 Winter Olympics, fell on the ice during what announcers said was a "disastrous" performance and the worst they'd seen from the 18-year-old Utah phenom.

The Hamiltons lost 6-4 to China, meaning they will not move on to the semifinals on Monday.

To reach the prime-time TV market in the United States, the figure-skating events begin at 10 South Korea, which is 14 hours ahead of Eastern time.

"I don't know if there's any specific explanation for it", Yamaguchi said.

As always, I hope this special event brings us together as a country and as a community.

"Before the score was announced, the crowd started roaring and yelling". "Our main goal is the individual event".
