Winter Olympics 2018: What to watch Thursday, Feb. 15, in Pyeongchang

One figure skater to keep a close eye on is Nathan Chen. There was a ton of hype around him heading into the Olympics, and it only makes sense after his record-setting year. Just over a month ago, he created a piece of history becoming the first male figure skater to land five quadruple jumps in one performance.

He's already a two-time national champion and will make his Olympic debut in Pyeongchang.

The events will be broadcast on NBC and NBCSN (all times Eastern).
