US figure skater Vincent Zhou out of Olympics

Team USA faces pandemic toll. Zhou tests positive for Covid.

Where: Beijing, China

The Facts

In an Instagram video, US figure skater Vincent Zhou revealed that he has withdrawn from the Beijing Olympics after testing positive for Covid-19.

Zhou, 21, stated, “I’ve taken all the precautions I can. I’ve isolated myself so much that the loneliness I felt in the last month or two has been crushing at times.”

Zhou is one of more than 100 athletes who have tested Covid positive since arriving in Beijing.

Nathan Chen, a favorite in men’s skating, said that the US athletes eat in a walled-off area and that he pulls his mask down to take a bit of food and quickly pulls it back up to chew.

The US team won a silver medal over the weekend.
