Sneak Peak of tonight's Olympic events on KVOA

Posted: Updated:

 Are you ready for an action-packed Thursday night of Olympic coverage on KVOA?  It all begins with News 4 Tucson's special "Olympic Zone" at 5:30 p.m. and, then prime time coverage on NBC. It’s another big night for Team USA. Mikaela Shiffrin goes for back-to-back gold medals in Alpine Skiing, and Nathan Chen begins his pursuit of Gold in the Men’s Short Program. Here's what's on tap for tonight on NBC:

•   Alpine Skiing - Women's Slalom, First Run

Coming off a winning performance in the giant slalom, Mikaela Shiffrin looks to defend her Olympic title in women's slalom.

•   Alpine Skiing - Men's Super-G
Lake Placid native Andrew Weibrecht is an outside contender for a third-consecutive medal in the men’s super-G.

•   Skeleton - Men's Gold Medal Final Runs
The final runs of men’s skeleton feature reigning world champ Martins Dukurs of Latvia and South Korea’s own Yun Sung-Bin, with Americans Matt Antoine (2014 bronze) and John Daly lead the Americans. Daly returns after heartbreak in Sochi, where he dropped from contention when his sled came out of the groove.

•   Women's Snowboard Cross Gold Medal Final
Team USA's Lindsey Jacobellis, who memorably fell short of gold at the 2006 Games, eyes redemption in women's snowboard cross.

•   Figure Skating - Men's Short Program
American Nathan Chen , the first skater to land five quadruple jumps in a single program, leads a talented and experienced field of international skaters. Chen will face tough competition from defending Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu and teenager Shomo Uno , who placed first and second, respectively, at the World Championships in April. Adam Rippon , a member of the team that captured bronze earlier this week in the team event, and Vincent Zhou , the 2017 World junior champion, will also represent the U.S.


Mikaela Shiffrin goes for her 2nd Gold Medal of the week, defending her Sochi Gold in Slalom. And we expect all 6 of the top men skaters including Nathan Chen to perform in Prime Plus for the top standing in the Men's Short program.
