The pairs event was the next discipline on the schedule, where Aliona Savchenko marked her fifth Olympic appearance and her first gold with partner Bruno Massot. In the men's event, Yuzuru Hanyu repeated as gold medalist and his training mate Javier Fernandez won Spain's first-ever figure skating medal. Nathan Chen from Team USA rallied from 17th place to fifth overall after a stunning free skate with six attempted quadruple jumps.
