Following are highlights from tonight’s primetime coverage of the Winter Olympics on the platforms of NBCUniversal:


Johnny Weir on Madison Hubbell and Zach Donohue’s rhythm dance routine: “They skate so big, so eloquently. The depth of edge is just insane…That’s the best I’ve seen them skate that rhythm dance all season. Just so strong, so secure…They just skate in such a difficult, difficult way. They hold nothing back and it just leads to this dream world that we get to watch.”

Tanith White on Hubbell and Donohue: “Such a good program. I mean, that’s how you close a show. The performance level is so high. We saw it in the team event how they brought that energy that fun to the last section, I was so happy to see that come back at the end of this program.”

Weir on Madison Chock and Evan Bates: “Much like the music of Billie Eilish, their skating gets stuck in your head…They have the best lifts in the world…That passion -- they’re like strawberries and champagne. They’re bubbly and they’re rich and I just love it.”

White on Chock and Bates: “They really attacked that performance. There was that one little slip, but every moment of this choreography just has these little treasures in it. All of those small details – even just the way that she looks at him, looks at the audience. I mean it’s hypnotic, she’s mesmerizing as a performer…It’s really important to note that there are mistakes that happen outside of the moments that are most closely scrutinized by the technical panel, which are less costly because they occurred in a sort of in-between moment.”

White on Kaitlin Hawayek and Jean-Luc Baker: “It is so nice to see them on an Olympic stage. They have absolutely owned this opportunity. They have been the third team in the U.S. for some time, a top-10 team in the world, but they have had to deal with ongoing injuries for a number of years. (It’s) always just kept them slightly from what their ceiling could be from one season to the next, and now they get to capitalize on this opportunity.”

Weir on France’s Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron: “They’ve got angel whispers under their blades, it’s like they’re skating on clouds.”



Leigh Diffey on monobob’s Olympic debut: “There is a lot of excitement here at the house of speed, and the reason why is monobob is making its long-awaited and highly-anticipated Olympic debut.”

Bree Schaaf: “Allow us to introduce you to monobob, where the driver becomes the breakman…The women’s monobob is much lighter than the two-women sled. Not only are you missing your breakman, but the sled itself is lighter so it is much harder to control, and you don’t have that weight in the back to give you the glue in the corner.”

Schaaf on what it’s like to try and drive a monobob: “It’s like taking a front-wheel drive car with summer tires out on an icy road. You have so little control, they’re constantly skidding out from under you - it takes a very delicate touch.”

Schaaf on Team USA’s Elana Meyers Taylor recovering from Covid: “When (she) is confident, she is unstoppable. The question is, was she able to get enough practice runs to gain that confidence for this race? … Elana is one of the top starters and one of the strongest women I have ever met in my life…She is an incredible athlete and physical force in this sport.”

Schaaf on Team USA’s Kaillie Humphries’ first run: “Kaillie is one of the best pilots, best drivers in the world, and that was a true testament. To keep this monobob stable on an unstable track is truly impressive.”

Schaaf on Humphries: “She has been up against so many issues leading into these Games. There is no more talented bobsled pilot in the world than Kaillie Humphries.”



Ted Ligety on the difficult conditions for the men’s giant slalom: “Watching this, I’m not having FOMO, that’s for sure. Makes me happy when I see a really tight course where guys are struggling to make a clean turn – I’ll leave that for the young guns.”

Lindsey Vonn to Mike Tirico on the snowy conditions: “We’ve been talking about the man-made snow problem the whole Olympic Games, and now we have the opposite problem – too much snow. The combination has led to a really bumpy course, and the visibility is really bad. When you combine those two things, it really feels like a rodeo ride for these athletes. They are struggling to make it down, fighting for every inch that they can.”

Vonn on adjusting to conditions on the mountain: “That’s why it’s so hard in alpine skiing. You wait for four years for the Olympics and your one moment, and it’s a blizzard with a really bad combination of snow conditions. You just have to do the best you can in that moment. I’ve been there many times and whatever hand you’re dealt, you have to do the best you can with it.”

Steve Porino on Team USA’s River Radamus’ first run: “He has that fight. Made a couple of errors, but he continued with that same pattern of skiing -- that high-edge angle. That is what is required to make time here…Pretty solid skiing.”
