Team USA will have some big chances to add to its medal count coming up, with snowboarding star Red Gerard set to hit the hill, Mikaela Shiffrin set for the giant slalom final, figure skating wrapping up its team competition and more.
The U.S. scored its first medals of the Games in the previous day of competition, but with eight medal events on the line for Day 3, the anticipation is high.
Here’s what to watch in the next 24 hours in Beijing and how you can watch it live.

It’s shaping up to be a dream day on the slopes for Mikaela Shiffrin and boyfriend Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, who could both score Olympic gold on a jam-packed Sunday of Alpine skiing at the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Thanks to a weather postponement, Kilde’s men’s downhill – originally planned for Saturday evening (U.S. time) – will take place directly in between the first and second runs of the women’s giant slalom, where Shiffrin is the defending gold medalist.
Shiffrin will attempt to do the unprecedented in Beijing: win five alpine skiing gold medals in a single Olympics. The 26-year-old has a realistic shot at history after winning four medals at the 2021 World Championships.
