Vincent Zhou tests positive for COVID-19

American skater Vincent Zhou has tested positive as part of regular COVID-19 screening at the Beijing Olympics, one day after struggling through a poor free skate for the eventual team silver medalists.
Zhou is undergoing additional testing Monday to confirm his status, to see if he will be allowed to compete in the individual competition, come Tuesday.
The high-flying but wildly inconsistent 21-year-old Zhou finished sixth in the men’s program at the Pyeongchang Games, but his second-place finish at the NHK Trophy and victory at Skate American in his two Grand Prix assignments gave him hopes of earning a medal.
