Winter Olympics: US men's hockey off to rough start after ugly finish

"We are not upset at all with the score or the way we skated; we are just honored to be here", Scimeca Knierim said, according to U.S. Figure Skating via NBC. Then in 2016, Alexa was diagnosed with a life-threatening gastrointestinal condition. The U.S. figure skaters competing at the Olympics are partners on the ice, and married off it.

"I can lift her, throw her, catch her". At one point, Alexa weighed just 80 pounds.

Valentine's Day short program coming up soon! Days after winning bronze in the team portion, the married couple sealed their romantic short program set to "Come What May" from Moulin Rouge! with a kiss. "It will be a most unique bond because there is no other pair competing at the Games that is married so it will be one in a million". Chris is competing for a gold medal in South Korea, and he still managed to give his wife the ideal Valentine's Day.

Ramona's Chris Knierim and wife Alexa ended their Olympic figure skating odyssey with a thud. "Today was much more than about us".

For Scimeca Knierim, the Olympics are an opportunity to "glorify God, and my followers know that that's my goal and it makes me happy", she told People.

"It's been the hardest two years of our lives together", Alexa Knierim said.

But they had a greater objective in mind, their hearts heavy with the tragedy they had learned of just hours earlier in the athletes' warmup room at Gangneung Ice Arena, where CNN broadcast details of the Florida school shooting that left 17 dead. "We may be living in a different world over here with the Olympic hype, but we're hurting for them".

"I have some insecurities now that I didn't have before, but I'm able to work on it and move forward because I've shifted my focus and my attention to my faith instead of myself".

While we're all celebrating our love today, the Olympians celebrated it last night in PyeongChang (They're 14 hours ahead of us on the east coast).
