Nagoya, Japan hosts the 2017-18 Grand Prix Finals (junior and senior). The competition begins Thursday, Dec. 7 with the junior pairs, men’s and ladies events, followed by the senior pairs and men’s short programs and the short dance.
The top six skaters in each discipline — in both the senior and junior ranks — will go head-to-head in one of the most important pre-Olympic showdowns. Historically, skaters and/or teams that win this prestigious event are clear favourites to take the gold at the Games.
Two strong contenders for Olympic gold in PyeongChang, Yuzuru Hanyu and Evgenia Medvedeva, are sidelined by ankle injuries and will not contest this event.
