Winter Olympics 2018: What to watch Saturday, Feb

The medals will continue to roll in at the 2018 Winter Olympics on Sunday as six more are set to be awarded in Pyeongchang across a range of skiing, snowboarding, luge, speedskating and more.

On the second night of the team competition, the dance team of Maia and Alex Shibutani took second, as expected.

The "Shib Sibs", a brother and sister team, skipped out on Friday's Opening Ceremony in order to prepare for their performance in the team event. The U.S. has yet to medal in the sport, but with the 7.5km sprint gold medal final, Team USA could create history.

Buffalo Grove's Bradie Tennell is beginning her quest for Olympic figure-skating gold in South Korea. Of the 10 teams participating in the event, just the top five move on to the free skate performances. Snowboarders from Norway and Canada are favorites to win the gold, but Team USA's Red Gerard qualified for the finals with one of the most high scoring rail sections from any skiier.

United States skater Bradie Tennell practises at Gangneung Ice Arena ahead of the women figure skating competition of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games on February 8, 2018. We will have to go back and see the levels. "I'm really happy. I don't think I could have asked for a better first program at the Olympics".

In that regard, Olympic judges didn't place Tennell in the same category as the Russian-born defending world champion Evgenia Medvedeva, 18, who earned a world record 81.08 points for her evocative short program to Chopin's "Nocturne". The Shibutani siblings also skated in Sochi, where they finished ninth in ice dance, but this is their first time taking part in the team event at the Games.

Italy's Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte finished in fourth place, and Japan's Kana Muramoto and Chris Reed finished in fifth place, helping both Italy and Japan qualify for the free skates/dance portion of the team competition.

The free dance will conclude the team competition Monday at 12:10 p.m. Korea/ 10:20 p.m. EST Sunday.
