Team USA’s Bradie Tennell and ice dancers Maia and Alex Shibutani will compete in the figure skating team event, according the entry lists released on Friday evening.
Figure skating’s team event continues Saturday in Primetime on NBC and NBCOlympics.com.
Tennell is making her Olympic debut. The “Shib Sibs” competed at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, but did not partake in the team event.
Tennell’s short program is set to music from the film “Taegukgi,” a popular South Korean movie. The well-known soundtrack should be appreciated by the local audiences.
“I’m hoping it’s received well,” Tennell recently said of performing for the South Korean crowd. “I certainly love the music and I hope it do it justice.”
