Winter Olympics: Americans land quad twist in pairs free skate

Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States

"I had asked Chris to pick up the slack for me today because I knew I'd be more worn out, but my adrenaline kicked in and I rose to the occasion and I think his fatigue settled in more maybe because he was concerned for me", Scimeca Knierim said.

The United States claimed bronze in the team figure skating event Sunday evening, with Canada taking home the gold and the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation earning the silver.

The U.S. pairs team was in the warm-up room before the free program at Gangneung Ice Arena and glanced at the television in the corner.

Germany's Aljona Savchenko and Bruno Massot won the gold in one of the closest pairs competitions in Olympic history, their 235.90 points just.43 ahead of China's Sui Wenjing and Han Cong. Alexa says, "Yeah, and then maybe after the Olympics we'll take our honeymoon 'cause we haven't yet". It's not about the other teams being better than us.

"I kind of put pressure on myself and wanted to honor those who were lost today".

On Wednesday, the European Central Bank also announced the cities that will host the new eight-team Twenty20 tournament in 2020. Trent Bridge could misses out on an Ashes in 2023, but they are likely to host a team in the upcoming Twenty 20 tournament.

The 26-year-old added, "Even though we're here in PyeongChang, our hearts are with them". Their highlight came in the short program of the three-day event, when they skated next after gold-medal favorite Nathan Chen had bombed but propped up US medal hopes with an inspired performance.

The pair has the right attitude, especially considering they were already apart of the team bronze win earlier in the week.

According to U.S. Figure Skating, the pair became the fist U.S. pair to do a quad twist at the Olympics.

While Chris and Alexa ultimately finished fourth in this year's competition, they could not care less. (I mean, come on.) The two are obviously incredible actors as well as athletes, so it's not that hard for the brain to catch the ferry into Ship City. "It was the highlight of our program, unfortunately".

Following their free skate at the Olympics, the couple discussed the role their faith played in returning to the ice.
