USA wins bronze in Olympic team figure skating


Adam Rippon and Mirai Nagasu, 20-something veterans who have already lived a lifetime or two in figure skating, turned in the
performances of their lives Monday morning to lead the United States to the bronze medal in the Olympic figure skating team competition.
Canada routed the Olympic Athletes from Russia for the gold. The final score was Canada 73, OAR, 66, and the USA, 62. The margin was surprising, and devastating for an OAR team that wants its performances here to show its displeasure in the International Olympic Committee’s banishment of the nation due to its massive state-sponsored doping program. Four years ago, Russia won the gold over Canada, with the USA third. The Americans were third again, but there was something magical about Monday’s skates that made it anything but repetitive or routine.
