Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final 2022: Schedule, athletes and how to watch live on Thursday 8 December

Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final 2022 Live

After a two-year absence, the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final and Junior Grand Prix Final return to the ice in the conclusion of the annual figure skating circuits at the Torino Palavela in Turin, Italy.

The top six per discipline from the six-event fall Grand Prix Series gather in Turin, Italy, at the Palavela, the 2006 Olympic venue. It’s the first Grand Prix Final in three years after the 2020 and 2021 events were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The U.S. qualified skaters in all four disciplines for the first time since 2007, led by the world’s top-ranked man. Ilia Malinin, who turned 18 last Friday, has been the story of the season, becoming the first skater to land a quadruple Axel in competition.

Competition begins on Thursday, 8 December 2022, featuring the junior men, junior pairs, junior women, senior pairs, and senior men.

Day 1 focus: Where will Malinin rank after the short program?

The senior men will conclude the first night of action (8:35pm), although we won't see Ilia Malinin's quadruple Axel in Turin on Thursday due to restrictions on what can be performed in the short program.

Indeed, of the six men in the Grand Prix final, Malinin has only the fifth-highest short program score on the circuit this season, behind Japan's Yamamoto Sota, Miura Kao, and world champion Uno Shoma, and Italy's Daniel Grassl.

Earlier in the day, the junior men, junior pairs, junior women, and senior pairs will all also compete in their respective short programs. World champions Alexa Knierim and Brandon Frazier are among those who’ve qualified in the pairs event.

Olympics.com will be in Turin to bring you in-depth coverage online and on social media.

Malinin, the reigning world junior champion, won both of his Grand Prix starts and posted the best total score among all fall events, edging world champion Shoma Uno of Japan. Malinin and Uno will go head-to-head for the first time this season at the Final.

Isabeau Levito, a 15-year-old world junior champion, is the youngest American at a Final since Caroline Zhang in 2007. She qualified in fifth place. The favorites are Japan’s Mai Mihara and Kaori Sakamoto and Belgian Loena Hendrickx.

The U.S. also qualified two pairs’ teams — world champions Alexa Knierim and Brandon Frazier and Emily Chan and Spencer Howe — and two ice dance couples — three-time world medalists Madison Chock and Evan Bates and Kaitlin Hawayek and Jean-Luc Baker.

For the first time, the Final has no Russian skaters. They are banned from international competition due to the war in Ukraine. For the first time in 25 years, there are no Chinese skaters. China’s top pairs’ teams did not compete in the fall Grand Prix Series.
