The Series moves to the other side of the world for the third event, and what will likely be another set of showdowns in Beijing.

Alina Zagitova, the 2017 World junior champion was unbeatable on the junior circuit last season. How will she fare in her senior debut against a number of veterans, including her teammates Radionova and Elizaveta Tuktamysheva? Throw reigning World bronze medalist Gabrielle Daleman from Canada and Japan’s Mai Mihara into the mix…and this will be a very exciting competition.

The same goes for the men. China’s Boyang Jin and Javier Fernández are set to battle it out once again. Jin won the contest at 2017 Worlds by capturing the bronze medal ahead of the Spanish star, but can he come out on top again? And don’t discount Kolyada who could be the dark horse in the medal conversation.

China’s Wenjing Sui and Cong Han, the 2017 World pairs champions, should win this event without any serious challenge. Valentina Marchei and Ondřej Hotárek of Italy and Canada’s Kirsten Moore-Towers and Michael Marinaro are strong contenders for second and third.

French stars Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron will likely twizzle to ice dance gold, with Bobrova and Solovyev and America’s Madison Chock and Evan Bates battling it out for silver and bronze. The U.S. is fielding two new senior teams at this event: Lorraine McNamara and Quinn Carpenter and Elliana Pogrebinsky and Alex Benoit.
