Figure Skating

Men

Pairs

Women

Ice Dancing

All four events consist of a short program (two minutes and 40 seconds) and a free skate, sometimes called the “long program” (max. 4:40 for men and 4:10 for women). Skaters are ranked on technical merit and artistic impression in a consensus vote by nine judges. Factored placements (FP) in the men's, women's and pairs' competitions are determined by multiplying the final short program rank by 0.5 (0.2 for 1st and 2nd compulsory dance and 0.6 for the original dance in ice dancing) and then adding that number to the final free skate.

Medal breakdown (4 events): Five medals—Russia (2-3-0); Three—United States (1-0-2); One—Canada (1-0-0), France (1-0-0), China (0-0-1) and Italy (0-0-1).
