Miss Watching Women's Figure Skating Free Skate Final Live? Here's How to Watch it Again

It was a shocking finale for the women's figure skating program Thursday morning.

The women's event, which has been at the center of a controversial ruling as 15-year-old Kamila Valieva was allowed to perform despite testing positive for a banned substance before the Games, came to a close with one of the most emotional finishes.

Thursday morning's program saw some stunning performances, unfortunate falls and shocking struggles leading up to a chaotic podium moment. But if you missed watching it live, you'll be able to see it all again.

When and how can you watch the women's figure skating free skate final again?

The women's final, which saw some of the world's biggest names in figure skating take the ice, kicked off at 4 a.m. CT Thursday and aired live on USA, but for those who missed it, you'll have another chance to watch on television (or if you want to see the highlights scroll down).

(Warning: spoiler alerts below)

If you're not looking to wait until Thursday evening for a recap, see some of the highlights from the competition below.

Gold medal favorite, 15-year-old Russian skater Kamila Valieva, missed the podium after struggling during her performance, keeping the Russian Olympic Committee from a podium sweep and paving the way for a medal ceremony many thought wouldn't happen as a doping scandal surrounding Valieva overshadowed the women's event.

To say Valieva struggled in the free skate would be an understatement. After finishing in first in the short program, the 15-year-old had two falls and two stumbles in the free skate. Her total score of 224.09 put her in fourth.

Valieva entered the free skate in the lead, but finished in fourth behind fellow ROC skaters Anna Shcherbakova and Alexandra Trusova and Japan's Kaori Sakamoto.

The United States had three figure skaters performing, but all three of Alysa Liu, Mariah Bell and Karen Chen fell short of the podium.

Chen's routine had a number of technical mistakes, including a fall on her final jump in the routine. She received a score of 115.82, which when added to her short program score 64.11, gave the American a total score of 179.93, good for 16th.
