Parting thoughts and parting shots from Pyeongchang:

• It was terrible to see Gangneung Ice Arena with so many empty seats at the start of the figure skating events each morning. Very bad optics for the skaters and TV viewers around the world.

All of the figure skating competitions began at 10 each morning to satisfy the wishes of American rights holder NBC, which wanted to televise the proceedings in prime time back in the United States.
