How to watch the U.S. Olympic Short Track Trials

Watch the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for short track speed skating live from Dec. 15-17

Watch live on NBCOlympics.com, NBC and NBCSN as the U.S.' top short track skaters compete at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials from Dec. 15 - 17 in Kearns, Utah at the Utah Olympic Oval.

Competition will kick off on Friday with the men's and women's 1500m. The 500m will take place on Saturday, and then the Olympic Trials finishes with the 1000m on Sunday.

32 skaters, 16 men and 16 women, will compete for eight spots, five for men and three for women, on the U.S. Olympic short track team for the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics.

Some of the favorites include J.R. Celski, already a three-time Olympic medalist from the Vancouver and Sochi Winter Games, and Katherine Reutter, who won a silver and a bronze at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Olympic hopefuls to watch are John-Henry Krueger, who was a favorite to make the team in 2014 but came down with swine flu during the last Olympic Trials, and Maame Biney, the 17-year-old who won a bronze medal at the 2017 Junior World Championships. 

Every competition session will be streamed live on NBCOlympics.com. The later session on Friday will air live on NBCSN, and the second sessions on Saturday and Sunday will air live on NBC.
