At the 2010 Winter Olympics, Canadian ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir became the world's favorites when their perfect (and moving) free skate won them their first Olympic gold.

In 2014, Team USA's Meryl Davis and Charlie White stopped them from winning their second consecutive gold (Virtue and Moir settled for silver). With four Olympic medals over the past eight years, Virtue and Moir will kick off their final individual ice dance event at the Olympics with one goal: to reclaim gold.

Another must-watch is Team USA versus Finland in the women's ice hockey semifinals, as the Americans look to make their sixth consecutive Olympic final.

In the ski jumping team event, Germany and Poland will fight it out for the top spot. Germany's Andreas Wellinger, meanwhile, will look to end his Pyeongchang journey with another gold -- he won gold in normal hill and silver in large hill.

A lot is in store Monday at the Olympics. Here's everything you need to know:

Figure skating

Mixed ice dance, short dance (Sunday, 8 p.m. ET/Monday, 10 a.m. local time): The enthralling rivalry between Canada's Virtue and Moir and France's Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron will be the storyline to watch. Virtue and Moir (who've been skating together for 20 years) won the world championships, while Papadakis and Cizeron -- who became the first couple to break into the 200-point combined score -- finished first in the Grand Prix final. This is Virtue and Moir's final Olympics -- and competition -- and they will look to retire on a high. They stunned the world when their perfect skate won them the gold medal at the Vancouver Olympics. They also topped the short and free programs in the team event to win Team Canada the gold medal. Will they be able to hold off the world-record-holding French pair and win their second Olympic gold?

Meanwhile, Team USA will also feature a strong pair: the brother/sister team of Alex and Maia Shibutani. The "Shib sibs," as they are affectionately known, helped the U.S. come back from a rocky start to win bronze in the team figure skating event and now seek their first individual Olympic medal.

Ice hockey

Women's semifinal: U.S. vs. Finland (Sunday, 11:10 p.m. ET/Monday, 1:10 p.m. local): Team USA suffered its first loss in the tournament when it was edged out by Canada 2-1 on Thursday. The Americans look to shake off the loss and continue their otherwise dominant run in the semifinal. Finland careened into the semifinals after an emphatic 7-2 victory against rival Sweden, avenging its quarterfinal loss to the Swedes in Sochi.

Team USA is in a better position to make it to the gold-medal game. It beat Finland 3-1 in the group stage, and unless something disastrous happens, it appears we are looking at another U.S. vs. Canada final.


Men's 500 meters (Monday, 6:53 a.m. ET/8:53 p.m. local): At the 2014 Olympics, Dutch speedskater Michel Mulder won the men's 500-meter gold. Now his twin brother, Ronald, is the heavy favorite to win the event. Ronald also won a bronze medal in Sochi, and four years later, he is back to keep the gold medal within the Mulder family. Ronald is riding on a career high this season after winning the 2018 European Championships.

Competing against Mulder is fellow Dutch speedskater Kai Verbij. The 23-year-old won the 2017 World Sprint Championships and has his sights set on his first Olympic medal.


Men's two-man competition (Monday, 7:35 a.m. ET/9:35 p.m. local): Driver Francesco Friedrich has helped Germany win four of the past five World Championships, but an Olympic medal has eluded him. He finished eighth in the two-man event in Sochi, and will make his Pyeongchang Olympics debut Monday.

Not far behind Germany is the Canadian team led by driver Justin Kripps. The Canadians have won silver behind Germany in the past two World Championships, and Kripps is also seeking his first Olympic medal.

Ski jumping

Men's team, large hill final (Monday, 8:25 a.m. ET/10:25 p.m. local): The ski jumping events (both team and individual) are so close, sometimes even the athletes aren't sure whether they've won after completing their final jumps. Germany and Poland are always involved in these close matchups. In the large hill individual event, Poland's Kamil Stoch went up against Germany's Andreas Wellinger. Stoch defended his title, but there was only a three-point difference in their final total. In the normal hill event, Wellinger took down defending champion Stoch. There is no way of telling who has the edge in the team event, but Germany and Poland will be favorites for gold.

But don't rule out Team Norway. Robert Johansson, who won bronze in both the normal hill and large hill events in Pyeongchang, also led his team to a World Championship win last year. He will look to add another Olympic medal to his collection.
