How to Watch Figure Skating

Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva holds a slim lead in women’s figure skating singles heading into the free skate. ROC teammate Anna Shcherbakova is currently in second and Japan’s Kaori Sakamoto in third.

Team USA’s three competitors in the event are a bit farther down on the leaderboard. Alysa Liu of Richmond, Calif. had the top short program score of any American putting her in eighth place. Mariah Bell is in 11th place, while Karen Chen of Fremont, Calif. is in 13th.

Even though she is competing, Valieva’s doping case has still had an impact on women’s singles. Instead of the usual 24 skaters advancing from the short program to compete in the free skate, an extra skater was added so that enough athletes were given a chance for gold in case Valieva is later disqualified.

This event will stream live at 2 a.m. PT, but can also be seen during NBC primetime on Thursday night.
