Redirect tells me I don't have access... Is it a paid link?
Yes, a season pass subscription is required (check out the Board Business forum).

Article about Anna Kondrashova Levandi and her son :):

ETA the same article with different photos (including two of his father at the Olympics):
His coach and mother Anna Levandi (Kondrashova) is a two-time figure skating Winter Olympian (1984, 1988) and 1984 world championship silver medallist. His father, Allar Levandi, competed at three editions of the Winter Olympics (1988, 1992, 1994), taking bronze in the Nordic combined at Calgary 1988.

^^^ Thanks for posting the link! I spent some time looking on that website but somehow missed seeing that article!

Thank you to @shutterbug for posting this Richmond (B.C.) News article on USA's Liam Kapeikis who currently trains at the Connaught SC, coached by Keegan Murphy:

I was able to read this Boston Globe article on the 2019 U.S. Novice Pairs silver medalists, Cate Fleming & Jedidiah Isbell (making their junior international debut at YOG), on my phone:

ETA:

Team USA figure skaters are ready for the opening ceremony (pictured in 3 of the 4 photos here):

Tomorrow's Opening Ceremony will be streamed by the Olympic YT channel here (not geoblocked, I assume):

In the US: On regular old-fashioned cable TV, Olympic Channel just showed the opening ceremonies tonight, to be repeated at 11PM Eastern. Three hours of same-day highlights begin tomorrow (10 Jan) at 8pm Eastern...to feature Figure Skating on Day 1, according to emcee Jimmy Roberts (Pairs & Men SPs)...Dance & Ladies SPs begin on Sat, 11 Jan, etc.

Any idea which countries will have teams?
It's mixed nationality, the teams are assigned by random draw.

The gold medal team in 2016 was Dmitri Aliev, Li Xiangning, Sarah Rose & Joseph Goodpaster, and Anastasia Skoptsova & Kirill Aleshin.
