GANGNEUNG, South Korea (AP) To team or not to team? That was the question posed to the top three pairs after Wednesday’s short program at the Pyeongchang Olympics. Each defended their strategy, saying their performances and all of them were outstanding emanated from participating or skipping the team event that concluded Monday. China’s world champions, Sui Wenjing and Han Cong, missed the team competition, and they won the short. Russian skaters Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov were a close second to the Chinese, closer than some expected, in fact.
