Coming into the Sochi Games, Canadian Patrick Chan - a three-time world champion - was the favorite to win the gold medal in men's figure skating.
That thinking has changed, however, The new favorite might be 19-year-old Japanese skater Yuzuru Hanyu, who turned in a magnificent short-program performance to finish first in that part of the team competition.
Chan is still among the top contenders, however. And his chances were no doubt boosted when 2006 gold medalist Evgeni Plushenko, who helped Russia win the team gold last week, was forced to drop out because of an injury.
You can catch the competition live on NBCSN during the day or tape-delayed in NBC's primetime show.
