Team USA Skates to Its First-Ever Silver in the Figure Skating Team Event

Watch All of Team USA's Figure Skating Team Event Programs

Figure skating at the 2022 Olympics in Beijing kicked off with the team event, and the results are in: it's a second gold for Team Russian Olympic Committee, a silver for Team USA (its best result to date), and a bronze for Team Japan, its first medal in the Olympic team event. To secure the gold, Team ROC relied on top-three finishes in all the events, including two first-place skates from top-ranked skater Kamila Valieva. In her free skate, Valieva also made history as the first woman to land a quad jump in the Olympics.

Team USA, meanwhile, started out strong with three career-best routines from Nathan Chen, ice dancers Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue, and pairs skaters Alexa Knierim and Brandon Frazier. On day two, though, the US dropped into second after Karen Chen and Vincent Zhou struggled in their programs. It took a first-place finish from ice dancers Madison Chock and Evan Bates, as well as a comeback routine for Karen Chen, to secure the US its silver.

There's plenty more figure skating to come as the individual events get under way, but we've already seen some stunning skates from Team USA in Beijing. Keep reading to catch up with all the silver-medal-winning team-event programs from Nathan Chen, Hubbell and Donohue, Knierim and Frazier, Karen Chen, Zhou, and Chock and Bates.
