The pair won ice dance gold at the 2010 Games before capturing silver in 2014, and are a good bet to reach the podium again in South Korea.

It's hard to predict if Tennell's meteoric rise will continue in PyeongChang, but she's certainly proved that anything is possible. "I'm really happy and proud to say that". Since 2009, she has won eight national and two worldwide titles.

Japan is expected to challenge for a medal led by their strong single skaters 2015 World silver medalist Satoko Miyahara and 2018 Four Continents Champion Kaori Sakamoto as well as 2017 World silver medalist Shoma Uno.

In addition to the physical demands of the sport, the support and resources for a budding ice skater is also critical.

Joining Nathan Chen on the men's team is fellow teenager Vincent Zhou.

In PyeongChang, Biney will be competing in the 500m and the 1500m. But Medvedeva, 18, still holds the world records for most points in both the short and long programs. The combined performances leave Canada in first place overall after Day One of the three-day competition.

Once back in the rink, Chen focused on soaring even higher.

The 23-year-old is a two-time gold medalist at the World Championships, a four-time Grand Prix Final champion and the defending champion at the Olympics. "I am going to be here a awhile and there are a lot of programs to be competed".

Flash forward to the 2014 Nationals: Nagasu came in third but was not sent back to the Games.

The International Olympic Committee rejected appeals by 45 Russian athletes plus two coaches who were banned from the Pyeongchang Olympics. "Sometimes you just can't plan these sort of days", said Chan, who figured the morning start time of the competition affected everybody negatively.

The United States was ranked the second thanks to Alexa Scimeca Knierim/Chris Knierim and Nathan Chen's fourth place finish both in pairs and in men's.

After 2014 Nagasu earned two more worldwide titles and placed fourth at the 2015 and 2016 Nationals.

Treais (23) watches the play during the under 18 men's Four Nations Cup Hockey Tournament Championship game in Lake Placid, N.Y. The "Olympic Athletes from Russia" - otherwise known as Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov - were first among pairs but Team OAR is sitting fourth because Mikhail Kolyada had an abysmal eighth-place outing.

Between 2005 and 2009, Rippon earned nine national and global titles as a junior skater. Israel's Alexei Bychenko was a surprising second after skating clean. One reason he was chosen for the 2018 Olympic team is that he is accustomed to the international-sized rinks, which are wider than National Hockey League rinks.
