NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Primetime):
Men's Snowboarding - Halfpipe Gold Medal Final: In one of the most highly anticipated events of the Games, action sports icon Shaun White will attempt to become the first American man to win the same individual event at three Olympic Winter Games. Standing in his way will be 15-year-old Japanese phenom Ayumu Hirano and a de facto home favorite, Russian-born Swiss rider Iouri Podladtchikov. Known as "I-Pod," Podladtchikov dubs his signature move the "YOLO flip," which stands for "You Only Live Once."

Figure Skating - Pairs' Short Program: Reigning world champions Tatyana Volosozhar and Maksim Trankov look to reinstate Russia's Olympic dominance in pairs figure skating following the 2010 Olympics, where Russia's streak of 12 straight pairs gold medals (dating back to the Soviet era) was broken. The duo will begin their run at the top of the podium with the pairs' short program, but may be challenged in front of a home crowd by four-time world champions and 2010 Olympic bronze medalists Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy of Germany.

Women's Freestyle Skiing - Slopestyle Gold Medal Final: Keri Herman, a 31-year-old who took up competitive skiing after growing up as a hockey player, and Devin Logan, this winter's Dew Tour champion, are among the Americans who should compete for medals.

Women's Ski Jumping - Individual K-95 Gold Medal Final: Women's ski jumping makes its long-awaited Olympic debut. After tearing her ACL in August, 19-year-old Park City native Sarah Hendrickson, the reigning world champion, is attempting to return to full strength in time to become the event's first gold medalist. The other top teen in the event is 17-year-old Japanese phenom Sara Takanashi, who placed second behind Hendrickson at the 2013 World Championships.
