The 2012 ISU World Team Trophy was an international team figure skating competition in the 2011–2012 season. Participating countries selected two men's single skaters, two ladies' single skaters, one pair and one ice dancing entry to compete in a team format with points based on the skaters' placement.

Background[edit]

The event was originally scheduled to be held on April 14–17, 2011 in Yokohama, Japan, but the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami led to the event's postponement.[1][2] It was rescheduled to April 19–22, 2012 in Tokyo, Japan.[3]

Japan qualified in first place with 7,891 points, followed by Canada (6,943), Russia (6,807), the United States (6,399), Italy (5,412) and France (5,214).[4] The total prize money at the World Team Trophy paid by the Japan Skating Federation is $1 million USD, the highest of any ISU event.[4]

World Team Trophy medals are awarded to the national teams. Skaters who place in the top three of their discipline receive gifts rather than individual medals.[3]
