  2. starsmoon0216 says:

    Why did you leave out the ice dance teams??? They are the strongest skating discipline for the USA and deserved recognition!!

  3. Eileen Uebelacker says:

    Hello we have three of the top ice dance teams in the world going to the Olympics. Thanks for mentioning them!

  4. Juliann Luu says:

    Ummmmm ice dance hello? Also Tara, Nathan is not "the face of skating", hes wonderful but like hes one of the younger skaters? And what about the other disciplines like womens skating and pairs and ice dance, he cant be the face for allllll of those! Like ik hes r like most consistent male skater but hes not the "face of figure skating" thats just dumb. What about the other countries, or how about some ladies??? Im just realllllllllly annoyed lol

  5. Mmina Maclang says:

    Wait, aren't the Shibutanis going?

  6. Baan-Tipviman Samui says:

    Rippon is in the team with the 4th place (just like Ashley 4 years ago).
    Now they excluded Ross Miner who won the silver medal.

  7. Sammy Smith says:

    How interesting…so many AsianAmerican's on our USA team…in fact, I watched the woman's skating and there were at least 8…we have had wonderful champions..Kristi Yamaguchi…and MIchelle Kwan..really hope our President gets to congratulate them all.

  8. Kayla Jones says:

    That was kinda bitchy for Wagner to say

  9. Sara Lu says:

    left out the shibsibs πŸ™

  10. epicrapfan73 says:

    What about Gracie Gold?

  11. heero yui says:

    And these US champs have little chances of getting an Olympic medal. Congrats anyways.

  12. Lady Haha says:

    I’m furious about Miner not being on the team

  13. Lynn Cai says:

    To all of those complaining about ice dancers being left out, this was filmed before the ice dance long program took place, so the remaining members of the olympic team were yet to be announced

  14. sianchild says:

    I'm very glad Wagner isn't on the team. She's so full of herself.

  15. MrQbenDanny says:

    The OLYMPICS is about more than technical points, it's about the intangibles that apply to be a champion. Look to the Russians for that, and they will be there, without THEM, there's no glory.

  16. Sodapop246 8 says:

    What about ice dancing???

  17. sikavik says:

    Go Nathan Chen!!

  18. El Dev says:

    hmmm, is it just me or did Tara Lipinski looked like she had some procedure done to her face?

  19. Arnel Cap says:

    Wow Tara easy on the Botox girl. I hardly recognize you now.

  20. Anna Leigh says:

    Im glad ashley is out… shes like a mom now compared to the other girls.

  21. Ella Blake says:

    Wagner needs to grow up…

  22. danceballetacro says:

    Russia is still prob going to come out I top. I hope to see yulia lipnitskaya again

  23. Mallory Fraser says:

    Here's my problem though- I just really don't see what Chen has over Wagner. Mirai has brought her A-game, Bradie (whilst lacking any artistry imo) is the queen of technicals, but Karen Chen is unmemorable to me. I watched a video on how the judges lowballed Ashley on her scores, and to me it's all a very Harding situation. She's not a pretty little Cinderella princess; she's a kickass warrior and the judges don't like that.

  24. Gwindor calafalas says:

    If anyone his the face of US Figure Skating……it's Michelle Kwan

  25. Yuzuuzu says:

    Adam is the queen πŸ’™πŸ’™ Ofc he should've been chosen for the team!

  26. Yuzuuzu says:

    It's so annoying that Shibsibs get all the hype because of their social media presence and the other two equally amazing ice dance American pairs are given so much less credit πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘

  27. Carlos Santiago says:

    Bradie Tennel is the new Medvedeva= Boring and overrated

  28. Kanoho Lau says:

    So let me get this. IF I PLACE 4TH THEN I GET TO GO TO THE OLYMPICS? Then why have a national championships. I mean if u break at the championship then you gonna be breaking at the Olympics. Oh America.

  29. E. M. says:

    To me, Wagner seems entitled. She only made the Olympic team last time by leap-frogging Negasu–quite unfairly, imo. Does she expect that to happen again with Chen? In the words of Alyssa Edwards, "Don't be bitter; just get better."

  30. stanleycoleman says:

    Go Nathan Chen!!!

  31. Laura Ashley Thomson says:

    Anyone else think it's strange that people are making such a big deal about who is going to the Olympics for woman? Like I understand Ashley's frustration, but so many fans are out for blood for some reason…
    Let's be real, the fight for the podium is between Russia and Japan. The Americans on a perfect day could maybe get a bronze…

  32. MovieFan 77 says:

    Wait, where is Tonya and Nancy ?

  33. Angelina T. says:

    IM SO EXCITED YOU DONT EVEN KNOW

  34. Claudia Peregrina says:

    Ashley’s entitled to feel however she will, and it is a tragedy if points were withheld from her (as I’m reading), but I’m still not Sotnikova β€œplacing” over Yuna Kim. πŸ’”

  35. Star Empress says:

    My Beloved Ashley…😫😩😫😩😩😩😭😭😭
    You are still the BEST and Biggest Star 🌟 of present figure skating β›Έ, no matter what!!!!! And For us your fans you are already an Olympic champion!!!!!πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

  36. shihlin1 says:

    Tara Lipinski is so annoying in the booth commentsting! Why couldn't they get Michelle Kwan or Kristi Yamaguchi to do the Olympics??

  37. Gus Filiss says:

    overcoverage of figure skating/ice dancing makes the olympics and nbc a failure

  38. Sakura Batata says:

    Weak figure skaters this year.No medals

  39. Scotti Brown says:

    Why did you leave out the Ice Dance teams? The US has produced the top teams in Ice Dance for the past decade
