Olympic Figure Skating 2018: USA Dates, Times, Remaining Event Schedule

"We wanted to skate for the 17 children that died in the Florida shooting, and today was much more than about us", Scimeca-Knierim said. Combined with their 14th-place finish in the short program the previous morning, they finished the competition 15th among 16 pairs.

While Chris and Alexa didn't take home a medal in their individual event, they did help Team USA take home a bronze medal in the team event, earlier in the games.

They now are in 14th place after their short program and are scheduled to take the ice again Wednesday (Feb. 14) for their final free skate in the pairs figure skating competition.

Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov of Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation were in second place with a score of 81.68, followed by Canadians Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford with a score of 76.82.

"We were soaking it in", Alexa said to NBC's Andrea Joyce. Unfortunately, we had too many mistakes today and it was one of our lowest scores.

"Even though we're here in Pyeongchang, our hearts are with them".




Despite not winning a medal in Pairs, they were an integral part of the US winning the team bronze.

Here's cheering for a gold medal from the chilled out lovers!

"Really, really special, I think we will be the only married couple in the world to say that they got to skate at the Olympics on Valentine's Day".

According to Yahoo!, Alexa and Chris heard the news of the school shooting in the warm-up room, where the TV was tuned to CNN International. (I mean, come on.) The two are obviously incredible actors as well as athletes, so it's not that hard for the brain to catch the ferry into Ship City.

Valentine's Day short program coming up soon! They said they felt an immediate connection.

Pairs final starts at 8:30 p.m., just in time to cuddle up with your Valentine and try to imagine the kind of trust required to allow someone to throw you up in the air, over ice, so you can land on one ΒΌ-thick-blade.
