The 2012 Trophée Eric Bompard was an international figure skating competition in the 2012–2013 season. It was the fifth of six events in the 2012–13 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating, a series of senior-level invitational competitions.
The competition was held in Paris, France from November 16–18, 2012. Medals were awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. Skaters also earned points toward qualifying for the Grand Prix Final.
Skaters who reached the age of 14 by July 1, 2012 were eligible to compete on the senior Grand Prix circuit.
The entries were as follows.
Italy's Carolina Kostner withdrew from the ladies' event due to insufficient fitness, the United States' Johnny Weir withdrew due to a right hip injury, and Germany's Aliona Savchenko / Robin Szolkowy withdrew as a result of Savchenko's severe sinus infection.
Jeremy Abbott of the United States was first in the men's short program, followed by Japan's Takahito Mura and France's Brian Joubert. Mura was also second in the long program but finished first overall and took his first Grand Prix title, while Abbott took silver, and France's Florent Amodio – 7th in the short – won the segment and rose to third overall. Jorik Hendrickx withdrew before the free skate due to a twisted ankle in an off-ice warm up.
Despite spraining her right ankle before the start of the competition, Russia's Julia Lipnitskaia placed first in the ladies' short program ahead of the United States' Ashley Wagner and Russia's Elizaveta Tuktamysheva. Wagner won the free skate and her second Grand Prix title, Tuktamysheva rose to take the silver, and Lipnitskaia finished with the bronze.
Russia's Yuko Kavaguti / Alexander Smirnov won the pairs' short program by over four points ahead of Canada's Meagan Duhamel / Eric Radford, with China's Peng Cheng / Zhang Hao in third. Kavaguti / Smirnov were second in the free skate but their lead from the short program took them to the gold medal, Duhamel / Radford were first in the free skate and finished second overall, and Italy's Stefania Berton / Ondrej Hotarek rose to take the bronze medal despite placing 5th in the segment.
France's Nathalie Pechalat were first in the short dance, followed by Italy's Anna Cappellini / Luca Lanotte and Russia's Ekaterina Riazanova / Ilia Tkachenko. In the free dance, Pechalat / Bourzat maintained their lead and won the gold medal, Cappellini / Lanotte were fourth in the segment but held on to second place overall, and Riazanova / Tkachenko finished in third.
