KARK: Walking around the Olympic Park, Aaron Nolan ran into former figure skaters and NBC commentators Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir and took a few moments to find out about their experiences outside of the press box.
“How much fun is PyeongChang right now, Korean BBQ, Korean Culture, I’ve had a lot of fun, how about you guys?” Nolan asked.
“Oh, we’ve had a blast, we started off in Seoul, I had never been before, Johnny has been many times so he was my tour guide,” Lipinski explained.
“We saw a little bit of team skating yesterday,” Nolan said, “you guys’ thoughts? Of course Nathan Chen had kind of a rough go of it.”
“It was a rough go, but ice is slippery,” Weir said, “Nathan Chen’s performance was uncharacteristic, we haven’t seen him have trouble like we have in the short program, but we are both confident, his record, and what he’s done over the last couple of seasons that for sure he’ll bounce back in the individual men’s event.”
“You have bad days, you have good days and the great thing about skating is you can have a horrible skate and then the next day you can have the best skate of your life,” Lipinski added.
