The U.S. Figure Skating Championships, the final event to determine the Olympic team, airs live on NBC Sports, USA, NBCOlympics.com and Peacock next week.

The U.S. has three Olympic spots for men, women and ice dance and two for pairs, matching its largest Olympic roster since 1984. In most cases, Olympic team selection mirrors national championships results, but not always.

Nathan Chen, the five-time reigning U.S. men’s champion, is the biggest favorite among the four disciplines. He bids to tie Todd Eldredge for the most national men’s titles since Dick Button won seven in a row from 1946-52.

The men’s event also has the clearest Olympic picture: Chen, Vincent Zhou and Jason Brown made up the U.S. team for every world championships in this Olympic cycle.

Alysa Liu, who in 2019 became the youngest U.S. women’s champion at age 13, is the highest-ranked American woman this season. She leads a field that also includes 2018 Olympian Karen Chen and Mariah Bell and Amber Glenn, the last two U.S. silver medalists.

The U.S. has two Olympic pairs’ spots after having just one in 2018. Four teams are bunched together: reigning national champs Alexa Knierim and Brandon Frazier and Ashley Cain-Gribble and Timothy LeDuc are separated by just .18 of a point in season’s best scores. Jessica Calalang and Brian Johnson and Audrey Lu and Misha Mitrofanov are another five and seven points back, respectively.

In ice dance, the U.S. again has multiple Olympic medal-contending couples. Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue and Madison Chock and Evan Bates own a combined five national titles, splitting the last two. The third Olympic spot is expected to come down to Kaitlin Hawayek and Jean-Luc Baker and Caroline Green and Michael Parsons, who finished third and fourth at last year’s nationals.
