The Olympic figure skating program in Sochi concludes on Thursday. Three of the world's best women figure skaters are going home with medals. The viewers in America really hope it might be Gracie Gold or Ashley Wagner, but it could be international figure skating champion Yuna Kim. Whoever does get the medals will have to complete the free skate program with grace and perfection. According to the Christian Post on Wednesday, millions of people are expected to tune into the free skate program to see who is awarded medals.
Team USA won’t be seen in the beginning of the program as all three American athletes are slated to perform after the halfway mark. Gracie Gold is expected to skate in the 22nd position. And Ashley Wagner is going to be on the ice immediately after Gold. The two skaters seem very close to each other off the ice so it might be comforting to cross paths when performing too.
The scores from the program on Thursday are combined with the scores on Wednesday and will determine the Olympic figure skating champion. With Yuna Kim offering a strong score, it is the viewer’s assumption that she will win the gold medal.
The action can be seen on NBC Sports Network live on Thursday. It can also be seen on live stream using NBC Olympics Live Extra or NBC Olympics.com. The start time for all channels is Thursday 10:00 a.m. ET. NBC evening coverage will also have highlights of some of the Olympic action as well.
