At the 2018 Winter Olympics, figure skating will consist of five distinct competitions: Men's single skating, Women's single skating, pair skating, ice dancing and team event.

Single Skating is comprised of a short program and a free skating program. The individual performance must include jumps, spins, steps, etc.

Pair Skating involves men and women skating in pairs to perform a series of maneuvers including throw jumps, overhead lifts, pair spins and death spirals.

Ice Dance consists of a couple dancing together across the ice, while performing intricate steps keeping beat with the music. Each skater cannot be away from their partner for 5 seconds or longer.

Team Event is a competition similar to a gymnastics team in that all disciplines are contested. A nation assembles its best skaters from each of the above disciplines and competes to earn points for their team.

The Games will be broadcast on NBC, NBCSN and across the networks of NBC Universal. Every Olympic event will be available to stream live and on-demand on and the NBC Sports app.
