PyeongChang 2018 Olympics - FIGURE SKATING - EXHIBITION GALA & CLOSING

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

PyeongChang 2018 Olympics - FIGURE SKATING - EXHIBITION GALA & CLOSING

Post by Elizabeth » Thu Feb 22, 2018 5:49 pm

I have been valiantly searching for information about how/where we would be able to see the Gala.

I have now received the information below from CBC:
CBC will be streaming the Figure Skating Gala event live on our website (below). The event takes place at 9:30am South Korea time on February 25th so you will have to take the time difference into consideration.
https://olympics.cbc.ca/video/vod/figur ... xhibition/

We will also broadcast the event on CBC TV at 1pm ET the day of the event (however it won't be live).


This means that it will be streamed on Saturday, February 24th at 7:30 p.m. ET and broadcast on CBC on Sunday, February 25th at 1 p.m.

As I posted elsewhere, they will include the top 4 in each discipline (excluding the team event) plus invited skaters. Some information is starting to leak out about who might be invited but the finish/performances in the ladies FS will help to determine the final line-up.

UPDATE just received from CBC:
We are writing to inform you that the broadcast time for the gala has changed. It will now air on CBC TV this Sunday the 25th at 3:30 p.m ET. Please note that due to the dynamic nature of the games, this is still subject to change.

You can still stream the event live tomorrow, Saturday the 24th, at 7:30 PM ET here:

Madison Hubbell & Zachary Donohue and Aliona Savchenko & Bruno Massot have withdrawn from the gala - apparently Madison & Bruno are both ill with a "feverish infection". I hope they feel better soon!

CBC is showing parts of the Gala in their "blended" coverage of competitions this evening. I'm watching the live stream :)

CBC showed #4 through #8, then #9 through #13 (both groups on a delayed basis); much later they showed #18, #20, #21, #24, #25 and #27

Thanks for the larger Olympic rings with the athletes picture. I have seen a smaller one circulating on Facebook.
