Competition notes[edit]

In the junior event, Kiri Baga had to withdraw due to Achilles tendinopathy in her left ankle.[6] Sui Wenjing and Han Cong withdrew due to qualification to senior Grand Prix Final. There were allegations that two female skaters, Sui in the senior event and Yu Xiaoyu in the junior event, were too young for those competitions, while a male skater Jin Yang was alleged to be too old for the junior event.[7]

In men's singles, Patrick Chan won his first Grand Prix Final title after edging past Nobunari Oda.[8][9] In ladies, Alissa Czisny also won her first title, ahead of Carolina Kostner.[10][11] In pair skating, Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy won their second title.[12][13] In ice dancing, Meryl Davis and Charlie White successfully defended their title.[14][15]

In the Junior GP Final, Richard Dornbush won the men's event,[16][17] in his third trip to the event. In ladies, Adelina Sotnikova won the title in her debut.[18][19] There was a tie for third in junior ladies, with Li Zijun and Risa Shoji both finishing with 149.82 points. The tiebreaker gave the medal to the free skate winner.[19] Narumi Takahashi and Mervin Tran won Japan's first pair skating JGP Final title. [20][21] Ice dancers Ksenia Monko and Kirill Khaliavin won their second JGP Final title as Russia swept the podium.[22][23]
