The U.S. contingent competing in Beijing is headlined by Malinin and Levito as well as 2023 world champion ice dance team Madison Chock and Evan Bates. Malinin has had continued success in his second year on the senior Grand Prix circuit, earning the highest total score in the world so far this season (310.47). The 16-year-old rising star Levito recently captured her first U.S. senior national title and is a four-time Grand Prix medalist, including silver at last year’s Grand Prix Final. 2022 Olympic medalists Chock and Bates will make their seventh appearance at this event in the ice dance field this weekend.

The U.S. is set to compete against a strong international field highlighted by three-time Olympic medalist Shoma Uno (Japan), who looks to win his second consecutive Grand Prix Final.  2022 Beijing Olympian Adam Siao Him Fa (France), 2023 world bronze medalist Loena Hendrickx (Belgium), and the 2022-23 Grand Prix Final champion ice dance team of Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier (Canada) are also expected to compete this weekend.
