Girdwood figure skater does not skate opening night in Olympics

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (KTUU) While many fans of Alaskan Keegan Messing hoped to be able to see him make his Olympic debut during the men's short program of the team event in South Korea, it was not the case.

The Girdwood native did not skate, however, his teammate, reigning silver medalist Patrick Chan did, placing third.

The Canadian Olympic figure skating team currently sits in first after day one of competition.

Keegan's stronger events, such as men's individual short and long programs, won't begin until February 16th.
