There are three athletes from the area competing in the winter games; Kaitlin Hawayek, Chris Lillis and Haley Scamurra.

Hawayek was born in Buffalo, NY, and grew up in East Aurora, NY. She is a figure skater, and this is the first Olympic games for her. Hawayek and her skating partner Jean-Luc Baker have been competing together since June 2012. 

The rhythm dance portion of the competition is on Feb. 12 at 6 am ET at the Capital Indoor Stadium. Then the free dance competition - the gold medal event - begins at 8:15 pm on Feb. 13.

Lillis was born in Rochester, NY, grew up in Pittsford, NY, and attended Monroe Community College. Lillis is a freestyle skier, and this is his first time competing in the Olympic games. His older brother, Jon, competed in the 2018 games in PyeongChang and was also a freestyle skier.

The Men's aerials qualifying round will take place on Feb. 15 at 6 am ET and the finals will be on Feb. 16 at 6 am ET.

Scamurra was born in Williamsville, NY, and grew up in Getzville, NY. She played for the Buffalo Beauts from 2016 to 2019. Scamurra is a forward for the Women's Ice Hockey team and has two assists and two points so far in the Olympic Games.

Team USA has already beat Finland (5-2), the Russian Olympic Committee (5-0), and Switzerland (8-0). In their most recent game, Team USA lost to Team Canada (4-2), which locked the US as the number two seed.
