Canada leads the Olympic team figure skating event heading into the final day, offsetting a record women's short program by two-time world champion Evgenia Medvedeva by winning the ice dance short and pairs free skate. The Canadians used a flowing routine by Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford in the free skate to extend their lead over the Russians.
Medvedeva says after setting a world record in the short program of the team event that Russia's doping troubles have made her stronger. Medvedeva is the two-time reigning world champion and favorite for gold in the women's individual competition.
She was also picked to represent Russia in front of the International Olympic Committee in December before the IOC opted against a blanket ban on Russian athletes but required a reduced team to compete under the Olympic flag.
Medvedeva says a foot injury as well as the uncertainty around the Russian team helped make her a better skater. She says the problems inspired her and the difficulties made her stronger.
Despite her success Sunday, she says she could have been better prepared mentally, adding, "I have to relax a little bit, maybe."
Meanwhile, American Bradie Tennell set a season best in the women's short program with her usual display of precision and calmness. Tennell's score of 68.94 puts her in fifth place.
The newcomer to the top ranks of figure skating is a mere .01 points behind Japan's Satoko Miyahara. Tennell says, "I'm super happy with the performance I put out there." She says, "It's what I've been training a long time for."
Earlier, 2010 Olympic champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won the ice dance. That leaves Canada with 45 points to 39 for the Russians, who slipped further behind when Italy's Valentina Marchei and Ondrej Hotarek were a surprising second in pairs. The Italians trail the United States by a single point, 36-35, heading into Monday's free skates in the other three disciplines.
Americans Alexa Scimeca-Knierim and Chris Knierim were fourth.
Norway led the medal count with 8 total, followed by the Netherlands with 5, according to CBSSports' Medal Counter.

Wellinger withstands cold to win Olympic gold
Andreas Wellinger withstood frigid temperatures and windy conditions to claim the gold medal in normal hill ski jumping.
High winds at the Alpensia Ski Jumping center during Saturday's first round resulted in a 30-minute delay of the final. The temperature was minus-11 Celsius, 12 Fahrenheit, but it felt a lot colder with the wind chill.
The wind continued in the final round and there were numerous delays before the 22-year German nailed a jump of 113.5 meters to secure the gold with 259.3 points.
Johann Andre Forfang took the silver ahead of fellow Norwegian Robert Johansson.
Defending Olympic champion Kamil Stoch of Poland was fourth
Wellinger is third in the overall World Cup standings this season and was competing in his second Olympics.
Koreans manage 3 shots at goal in 20 minutes
The Koreans managed all of three shots in the first 20 minutes of their historic women's hockey game in the Olympics, and a North Korean had one of them.
And fans roared encouragement and approval each time the Koreans touched the puck.
Han Soojin had a shot that went off the crossbar, just missing a chance to give Korea a lead in a scoreless game. North Korean Jong Su Hyon had a shot smothered by the Swiss goalie, and Choi Jiyeon had another shot late in the period.
It wasn't nearly enough against Switzerland, ranked sixth in the world and winner of bronze in 2014 at Sochi. Alina Muller provided all the scoring the Swiss needed with a hat trick in the first period, the third goal coming with 12 seconds left in the period.
Dahlmeier wins gold in 7.5-km sprint
Germany's Laura Dahlmeier wasn't just good. She was perfect.
The 24-year-old budding biathlon star hit all 10 targets to win her first gold medal in the women's 7.5-kilometer sprint on Saturday night at the Pyeongchang Games.
Dahlmeier had won five of six possible medals at last year's World Championships. Coincidentally, the one event she didn't win was this one.
She appeared exhausted as she finished, falling to the ground, her face inches from the snow and her skis spread apart in a frog-like position.
Only three women out of 86 competitors hit all 10 targets on a cold and blustery night. However, the other two failed to crack the top 15 because they took too long to shoot those targets.
Norway's Marte Olsbu captured the silver medal and Veronika Vitkova from the Czech Republic took home the bronze.
The 2018 Winter Olympic Games are underway in South Korea, and Sweden took home the first gold medal on Saturday. Sweden's Charlotte Kalla took home gold and Norwegian cross-country skier Marit Bjoergen took silver in the women's 15-kilometer skiathlon. With her win, Bjoergen became the most decorated female Winter Olympian ever.
But while the 37-year-old Bjoergen, who won three gold medals at the 2010 Vancouver Games and three more in Sochi, proved she's still a dominant figure in the sport, she admitted there is a noticeable changing of the guard happening.
"I have been very good for many years but I'm also getting older and the younger girls are getting better," Bjoergen said.
It was an 11th career medal for Bjoergen, breaking a three-way tie with Raisa Smetanina of Russia and Stefania Belmondo of Italy. Bjoergen thrust her arms up in the air as she crossed the finish, knowing she'd made history in what she said will be her last Olympics.
Sweden, Netherlands, Germany and South Korea are all tied with one Olympic gold, according to CBS Sports' Medal Tracker.
Olympic team figure skating underway

The competition continues Sunday with the ice dance short program, the women's short program and the pairs free skate. It wraps up Monday with the men's and women's free skate and the ice dance free dance.
As of Sunday morning, the Netherlands and Norway were tied for the most medals at 4, according to CBSSports' Medal Tracker.
Red Gerard wins U.S.' first gold medal
Seventeen-year-old Red Gerard won gold in men's snowboard slopestyle on Sunday, the first gold medal for the U.S. Gerard edged out Canadians Max Parrot and Mark McMorris
Gerard, from Silverthorne, Colorado, drilled his third and final run on the chilly but sun-splashed course at Phoenix Snow Park. His score of 87.16 was just enough to slip by Parrot. Parrot washed out in his first two runs but nailed his final trip through the tricky series of rails and jumps to post a score of 86.00. McMorris took third after putting up a score of 85.20 in his second run.
Gerard is the second straight American to win the event, which made its Olympic debut four years ago.
