The 22-year-old, who nearly quit skating after breaking her leg in a training accident in 2014, nailed her long program with seven triples jumps.

She did, and then handed off to Diggins on the final lap.

The American ski great said Thursday she recently scattered some of the ashes of her grandfather, who served during the Korean War, on a rock near the mountain where the downhill races were run.

"People had high expectations and when you have the largest delegation of athletes (241), it's understandable because it's a sheer numbers game in that respect", said Hayes.

Osmond scored 152.15 in her long program to music from "Black Swan" for a combined score of 231.02. She complained of boot problems on Instagram before her free skate, where she fell on a triple loop among five jumping passes that received negative grades of execution.
