SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Polina Edmunds, a 2014 Olympian, and Ashley Lin have withdrawn from the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

No reasons were immediately given for the withdrawals.

Edmunds, 19, and from San Jose, has struggled since making the Sochi Games team and finishing ninth. She was seventh after the short program. Lin, 14, was 21st.

The free skate is Friday night, with the women's Olympic squad expected to be announced on Saturday. The United States has three berths for women at the Pyeonchang Games, which begin Feb. 9.
