Russia's Quest for Figure Skating Dominance
The Russians have a ton of pride in their home Olympics, and they are showing just how important winning on home soil is to them.
Most of the Russian skaters have performed their hearts out over the past two nights, and that should not stop as we enter Sunday's programs.
Will Meryl Davis and Charlie White Be Forced to Rescue a Medal for the U.S.A.?
Ice dancing duo Davis and White are hands down the top medal contenders in their event, as they showed in the ice dance short program on Saturday.
With the ice dance free dance being the final of eight disciplines in the team figure skating event, Davis and White may have to rescue the medal hopes of the U.S.
There are plenty of unknowns in the remainder of the U.S. lineup, but one thing is for sure, and that is Davis and White will dominate the ice dance when called upon.
Who Will Use Sunday as a Momentum Builder into Individual Events?
Sunday's stage gives 20 different skaters a chance to build momentum heading into the individual and ice dance events that will be contested over the next week-and-a-half.
If skaters deliver a spectacular performance on Sunday, they could easily put themselves into the conversation for gold in their specific event.
As we all know, momentum is a funny thing, and it's better to have it on your side than to not have it at all.
