For the first time since the Grand Prix final in December 2019, Chen is competing against the two-time Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu from Japan. For the last time, a global ice skating competition of the highest level took place.
For women, Russia is sending a trio capable of winning the medals – Anna Shcherbakova, a three-time national champion before the age of 17, Aleksandra Trusova , who has landed four different quadruple jumps, and Yelizaveta Tuktamysheva, who is competing on worlds for the first time since winning the title in 2015.
Bradie Tennell and Karen Chen are competing for three US women’s places in the 2022 Olympics. This requires combined placements that total no more than 13. For example sixth and seventh.
In the ice dance, the four-time world champions Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron from France decided not to compete because they could not prepare properly in the midst of the pandemic. In their absence, the Americans Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue as well as Madison Chock and Evan Bates are among the gold medal winners.
