The world’s best figure skaters gather in Marseille this week, 14 months before the Olympics, to provide an early look at Pyeongchang frontrunners.

The top six per discipline from the fall Grand Prix season compete in the Grand Prix Final, the second-biggest annual event after the world championships in early spring.

This year’s fields include Sochi Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu plus the reigning world champions in each discipline -- Javier Fernandez, Yevgenia Medvedeva, Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford in pairs and Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron in ice dance.

A U.S. woman failed to qualify for the first time since 2008, while the U.S. sends two men -- Nathan Chen and Adam Rippon -- for the first time since 2009. The U.S. also has three ice dance couples, led by world medalists Maia and Alex Shibutani and Madison Chock and Evan Bates.

The full fields are here., Universal HD and NBCSN will provide coverage starting Thursday.
