2014 Winter Olympics about to begin - are you ready?

Competition at the Sochi Olympics will actually begin the day before the opening ceremonies (Friday, 7 February) - first up for figure skating fans is the brand new team event which involves the 10 ten countries. The men and pairs will be skating their short programs on 6 February with Patrick Chan and Duhamel & Radford leading off for Canada.

The official page for the sport of Figure Skating can be found here. Links to schedules, skate orders, results, etc. for each event can be found there. During the events as each skater/couple is about to skate their planned elements are put up on the results site. After they skate their completed elements are shown, along with their score and standing in the event.

CBC and its partners TSN and Sportsnet (SN) will be providing TV and online (live streaming) coverage and there is a mobile app. Their day-by-day schedule can be found here. Much of the live skating coverage will be on TSN and SN with highlight packages on the main CBC network.

A sports fan has also put together a sport-by-sport schedule that covers the entire Olympic period. It can be found here.

Good luck to all the skaters!
