Married US Olympic Skaters Pair up on Valentine's Day

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Medal winners for the figure skating pairs program of the 2018 Winter Olympics will be crowned Wednesday evening, following the second-part of the competition: the free skate.

Knierim fell on both of his triple jumps, a salchow and the toeloop that was supposed to lead into a double toeloop.

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.

After helping the US team secure bronze, married partners in life and ice Alexa Scimeca Knierim and Chris Knierim delivered a spotty short program that earned them a 65.55 score in Wednesday's Olympic pairs competition, enough to get them to the final.

The U.S. pairs team was in the warm-up room before the free program at Gangneung Ice Arena and glanced at the television in the corner.

"I am disappointed with the way we performed today, but so many people at home are hurting because their children have died", she said.

"I maybe am being too tough on myself, but we wanted to lift the spirits of those who have lost someone", she said.

"I was not focused on it while we were skating, but now that we are done, after we've skated, there's an emotional hurt". Even though we're here in Pyeongchang, our hearts are with them.

OK, but how cute are the Knierims?@alexa_knierim & @ChrisKnierim finish 15th in the #figureskating pairs competition at the #WinterOlympics! Their highlight came in the short program of the three-day event, when they skated next after gold-medal favorite Nathan Chen had bombed but propped up US medal hopes with an inspired performance.

The Knierims - a husband and wife team - struggled in their Free Skate and will not win a medal in Pairs. They weren't expected to contend for a medal, but they also had finished ninth, seventh, ninth and 10 in four trips to the World Championships. The only USA pairs skaters at the games were hurting. They are the first married American couple to compete at the Olympics in 20 years. This, then, was a small measure of redemption. "It was the highlight of our program, unfortunately".
