Ice dancers in spotlight

With a break in the men’s hockey tournament and no sign of Lindsey Vonn or Apolo Anton Ohno, the ice dancers will have center stage largely to themselves today. NBC plans to air their free skate in prime time.

GREAT SKATE?: Americans Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto, the 2006 silver medalists, compete in ice dancing’s final round.

INEVITABLE?: In a women’s hockey tournament dominated by the U.S. and Canada, those two teams play in separate semifinals against Sweden and Finland.

SWISS SWEEP?: Switzerland’s Simon Ammann already won individual ski jumping gold medals on the normal and large hills, but the Austrians are the favorites in the team jump.

NOT IN OUR HOUSE?: Canada faces defending champion Sweden in women’s curling, and the Canadian men take on the Americans.
