We have been scoring much higher.

Bradie Tennell skated a clean short program - which included a triple Lutz, triple toe combination, a triple loop and a double Axel - to finish fifth in the phase and earn Team USA six points.

The U.S. sent its largest team ever to the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, with 241 athletes representing 31 states.

But months of rehabilitation led to a bronze at Skate America in 2017, followed by victory at the U.S. Nationals last month that earned her selection for Pyeongchang, where she said she fears no competitor.

On Friday, Tennell participated in the celebrations and called it the "coolest night" of her life.

Five pair teams took the ice for the free skate, where Canada's Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford earned the full 10 points in first place. They provide in-depth coverage of all things figure skating.

Wust claimed two gold medals and three silvers at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi - and with her silver medal in Pyeongchang she is tied with Pechstein as the most decorated Olympic speed skater. Their short dance received a level two for their rhumba and a level three for step sequences, but they receive level four for their twizzles and rotational lift. "We've been training so hard, and to be out on Olympic ice for the first time, we are really happy with it", Maia said following their skate. 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.

Finishing just a point behind the Shibutanis' were reigning European silver medalists Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev, who earned a 74.76 and earned 8 points for the Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation. Both teams will compete again Monday in the free dance of the team event.
