San Jose resident Polina Edmunds, 15, is competing in Ladies Figure Skating at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The two-day competition begins February 19 with Short Program and continues on February 20 with Free Program. Coverage of these events can be seen during NBC primetime both days, but local fans with current television service can also tune in for live streaming beginning at 7 A.M. each day, thanks to NBC Live Extra.

Ladies Figure Skating is an event where medals are awarded based on an individual’s combined score from the Short Program (lasting two minutes, fifty seconds, with seven compulsory moves) and the Free Skate (lasting four minutes with no required moves). Edmunds earned her slot as a competitor after coming in second at the U.S. championships in Boston in January, and missed the Opening Ceremony because her trip to Sochi included stops in Germany and Austria for additional training.

She is the first Bay Area individual ice skater in the Olympics since Brian Boitano, but she has had Olympics inspiration at school as well. Edmunds, a sophomore, attends Archbishop Mitty High School, which boasts medal-winning alumni Brandi Chastain and Kerri Walsh-Jennings.

Cheer on Edmunds in her senior international debut Wednesday and Thursday morning.
