What to watch in Olympic sports this week

Leave a comment

Mikaela Shiffrin weathered a chest cold to win her third medal (and second gold) of the World Alpine Skiing Championships on Saturday.

A hectic racing schedule means she doesn’t get much of a break.

Following her performance at Worlds in Are, Sweden, Shiffrin headed to Stockholm for a city event, which involves a series of head-to-head, knockout-style races in a bracket format. That event will re-air tonight at 11:30 PM on NBCSN. The World Cup circuit continues in Switzerland for the women and Bulgaria for the men, where two-time Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety is expected to compete in Sunday’s giant slalom.

Winter sports action continues in Seefeld, Austria, which will host the world’s top cross-country skiers, ski jumpers and nordic combined athletes at the World Nordic Skiing Championships over the next two weeks. The U.S. contingent is headlined by PyeongChang gold medalist Jessie Diggins, who won her first World Cup race of the season, an individual sprint, last Saturday.

Meanwhile, the road to Tokyo passes through New York City with the USA Track and Field Indoor Championships on Staten Island. Two Rio Olympic bronze medalists, Emma Coburn (3000m steeplechase) and Clayton Murphy (800m) headline the U.S. field, along with their Olympic teammate and 2016 world indoor high jump champion Vashti Cunningham. The event will air Saturday and Sunday on NBCSN.

Leave a comment

NBC Sports and Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA combine to air more than 40 hours of World Cup action in Alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, Nordic combined and ski jumping from Friday through Sunday, with more than 30 hours of live streaming on NBC Sports Gold.

The Alpine skiing World Cup makes its final stops in North America. Double Olympic champion Mikaela Shiffrin looks to build on her World Cup overall standings lead in two downhills and a super-G in Lake Louise, Alberta. Another two-time gold medalist, Ted Ligety, tackles the Birds of Prey in Beaver Creek, Colo., where he will be one of the favorites in Sunday’s giant slalom, following Friday’s super-G and Saturday’s downhill.

PyeongChang Olympic champ Jessie Diggins leads the U.S. cross-country team to Lillehammer, Norway, for its second World Cup stop.

The Nordic combined World Cup also heads to Norway’s 1994 Olympic host village this weekend for the Lillehammer Tour. The stop features the first mass-start Nordic combined event on the World Cup in nearly a decade.

Finally, the men’s and women’s ski jumping circuits are split between Nizhny Tagil, Russia, and Lillehammer, respectively.

Japan’s Akito Watabe had seen this nightmare before. Germany’s Eric Frenzel edged him out for gold in Sochi and in the PyeongChang normal hill event a week ago.

On Tuesday, he was seeing triple.

In an entirely new level of torment, Watabe watched as the Germans swept the Nordic combined large hill/10 km event with Johannes Rydzek taking the gold, flanked by Fabian Reissle in silver and Eric Frenzel taking the bronze.
