After the ladies short program on Tuesday night in Vancouver, Rachel Flatt finds herself in fifth place -- well within striking distance for an Olympic medal.

But it will take a major mess up by Kim Yu-Na, Mao Asada, Joannie Rochette or Miki Ando (currently in places one through fourth respectively). The only other American figure skater, Mirai Nagasu is right behind Rachael in sixth place.

All the action will go down Thursday night during the ladies free skate, live on NBC. Will you be watching?
