Madison Chock, Evan Bates fall during free dance
Madison Chock and Evan Bates had a disappointing performance in their free dance on Tuesday at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.
Chock and Bates got their skates tangled midway through their program and ended up falling to the ice. Despite knowing that they would receive a deduction and likely be out of medal contention, the two bounced back to complete their program.

They received a score of 100.13, which left them sixth for the event and third in the combined points, with many of the top pairs to come. They received a two-point deduction for both skaters falling during the program.
Chock knew that the fall was devastating and was seen crying upon completing her skate.
