Tennell to Make Olympic Debut in Workforce Occasion

The team with the most points at the end of the competition is the victor.

Bradie isn't the only area athlete that will be competing in the Team Event, as and Chris Knierim will compete for the second time in the event.

They say they can't operate the gondola lift that would carry teams and officials up the mountain. Tennell earned a score of 68.94, just one hundredth of a point behind the fourth-place finisher, Satoko Miyahara of Japan. Tennell won the U.S. Women's Figure Skating Championship earlier this year.

Still, Tennell was thrilled with her error-free performance. Team USA is again in position to medal when the event concludes in PyeongChang on February 12. The 2010 Olympic ice dance champions performed to a medley of "Sympathy for the Devil" from The Rolling Stones, "Hotel California" by The Eagles and Santana's "Oye Como Va".

Maia and Alex Shibutani placed second in the short dance - Team USA's highest segment finish so far in the team event.

The Shibutanis will compete in the free dance of the team event Monday.

Reigning European Champion Alina Zagitova will compete in the free skate of the ladies event for the Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation.

The United States survived the cut, but Team USA has a little bit of work to do if it hopes to earn a gold medal in team figure skating. Canada leads with 35 points, while the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation are second with 31 points.

For many sports fans who tune into figure skating only once every four-year Olympic cycle, Sunday's women's short program offered the first look at Tennell, a 20-year-old from Winfield, Ill., who had no worldwide profile to speak of just six months ago.

One highlight from the short dance included not one, but two ice dance teams incorporating the Grammy-nominated smash hit "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.

The top five nations after their short programs advance to the free skate later Sunday.

US figure skating announced Adam Rippon will compete in the men's free skate, and Mirai Nagasu will skate in the ladies' free skate.
