Bradie Tennell keeps United States hopes alive in women's team figure skating event

Alexa and Chris Knierim perform in the pairs free skate program.

Maia and Alex Shibutani placed second in the short dance - Team USA's highest segment finish so far in the team event.

Bradie Tennell, of the United States performs in the ladies single figure skating short program in the Gangneung Ice Arena at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Gangneung, South Korea, Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018.

She was as steady as a rock.

And that's precisely how Tennell handled her Olympic debut Sunday at Gangneung Ice Arena, where she delivered a letter-perfect, technically proficient short program that lacked the emotional range global judges like to see.

-Ski jumping: Sarah Hendrickson will be the top competitor for the U.S.in women's normal hill as she looks to take take down reigning gold medalist Carina Vogt of Germany (11:00 a.m., NBCSN / 3 p.m. NBC).

Canada's team captains, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, tied the all-time record for most Olympic medals at four. But the artistic dimension of her skating is not yet on a par with the emotive range and grace of Medvedeva or four-time Olympian Carolina Kostner of Italy, whose short program earned the second-highest marks.

In the team event, one entry from each qualified country competes in each of figure skating's four disciplines.

Canada remain in pole position to clinch gold in the figure skating team event at the 2018 Winter Olympics on Sunday.

Canada enjoyed the best possible start on Saturday thanks to excellent work from Virtue and Moir in the ice dance. Yay for US figure skating medals! "We've been training so hard, and to be out on Olympic ice for the first time, we are really happy with it", Maia said following their skate. "We've already won by being able to step on the ice; this is great".

The Shibutanis will compete in the free dance of the team event Monday. Tied for third after one-quarter of the competition were Japan and the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation, each with 13 points.

They will also compete in the free dance of the team event Monday. Tennell earned a score of 68.94, just one hundredth of a point behind the fourth-place finisher, Satoko Miyahara of Japan. Team USA is again in position to medal when the event concludes in PyeongChang on February 12. Finally, the athletes in the ice dancing event will begin at 10:20 p.m. NBC (live stream) will broadcast these competitions, and fans can watch every event airing on NBC via FuboTV.
