patrick chan olympics mens figure skating Olympics 2014: Men's figure skating final resultsWarning: Do not keep reading if you’d like to remain spoiler-free for the men’s figure skating finals, which will be featured on NBC’s Friday (Feb. 14) primetime broadcast at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

The 2014 Winter Olympics men’s figure skating finals went out with a whimper rather than a roar. There were a lot of falls and bobbles, plus Russian favorite Yevgeny Plushenko was not competing, so not only were scores lower than expected, but there wasn’t the same excitement in the building as there could have been.

U.S. skater Jeremy Abbott rallied from his big fall Thursday during the short program to post a personal best in the free skate, which is his final Olympic appearance. Fellow Team USA skater Jason Brown had a chance at the bronze medal, but he would have had to skate a nearly flawless program to leap-frog Kazakhstan’s Denis Ten for third place, and he did not. Brown instead dropped to ninth place, which is still a solid finish for the young skater at his first Olympics.

The medals will go gold for Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan, silver for Canada’s Patrick Chan (above) and bronze for Kazakhstan’s Ten.
