    A world record has already been broken in the figure skating competition at the beijing 2022 olympic games! The couple from the People’s Republic of China sui wenjing/han cong, competing on their home soil, showed their full potential during the short program of the team event on Friday, February 4.

    Who else has been giving impressive performances to the judges and fans? takes a look at the current world records in figure skating – men’s singles, women’s singles, pair skating and ice dance – since the change in the scoring system in 2018.

    Reading: Figure skating world records

    only records validated by the international skating union (isu) are considered, that is, those obtained during a competition organized by the international federation. For example, Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron set the world record during the Masters d’Épinal (93.79 points), but as it is a French competition not organized by the ISU, it is not taken into account.

    We look at the figure skating records that could be broken during the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, February 4-20.

    ice dancing: gabriella papadakis/guillaume cizeron (fra) in a class of her own

    French ice dancers gabriella papadakis and guillaume cizeron have been on a mission since winning their silver medal at pyeongchang 2018 where they broke the then world record in the free skate. a year and a half later, in sapporo (japan), on November 22 and 23, 2019, they were absolutely great.

    papadakis and cizeron came very close to breaking their short program record during their last grand prix, at the internationaux de france in grenoble, but managed “only” 89.08 points. “We’ve been comparing our scores to the previous ones,” Papadakis said. “in turin we got two more points than in finland, so we were happy. here [in grenoble] we got two points more than in turin, which was our goal. we try to increase our score in each competition.”

    men’s event: a fight for the top between hanyu yuzuru (jpn) and nathan chen (usa)

    • names: hanyu yuzuru (short), nathan chen (free and total)
    • points: 111.82 (short) , 224.92 (free), 335.30 (total)
    • dates: December 7, 2019 (free + total), February 7, 2020 (short)

    competitions: grand final prize 2019/20 (free and total), four continents (short)

    Before the change in the scoring system, the double Olympic champion hanyu yuzuru held all three records: in the short program, the free program and the cumulative score. The Japanese star, the first figure skater to reach 100 points in the short program and 200 points in the free skate, set those records at the 2015/16 grand prix final, fall classic challenger series and at the world championships in 2017.

    Since then he has had to keep nathan chen at bay. the American stole the spotlight from him in the 2019/20 Grand Prix Final in December 2019, where both men were in action. the young American (20 at the time) first broke the short program record, scoring 110.38 points, before doing the same in the free skate with 224.92 points (and later the cumulative score) thanks in part to landing five quads.

    “hanyu has been pushing the sport forward, making it so enjoyable, so competitive, and that definitely made me a much better skater,” chen told the keeper.

    A few months later, at Four Continents 2020, Hanyu, who had seen Chen surpass him on his 25th birthday on December 7, regained his short program record with a score of 111.82 points. this clash will be one to watch in beijing 2022.
