Birmingham Groves High School graduate Ben Agosto, 2006 Olympic ice dancing silver medalist, will provide analysis of the figure skating competition at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

He’ll be on a digital-only version of NBC Sports’ “Olympic Ice” figure skating show on and the NBC Sports app. The show will debut Feb. 8 immediately following primetime coverage of figure skating on NBC and continue throughout the competition.

Agosto, 36, who lives in Scottsdale, Ariz., and works as a figure skating coach and choreographer, including Disney on Ice shows, retired from competitive figure skating in 2010.

He’s the son of a Puerto Rican father and a Jewish mother whose family has roots in Romania and Russia. He graduated with honors from Groves in 2000 and was in the jazz band there.
