Looking Ahead

Championship Short Dance (2 p.m. – 4:55 p.m.)

If you're looking for an event where there's a clear-cut favorite, this is it. Meryl Davis and Charlie White are the four-time defending national champions, 2011 world champions and 2010 Olympic silver medalists. The suburban Detroit residents have been competing together since 1997. Right behind them at recent big meets is another pair of Michigan natives, the brother-sister team of Alex and Maia Shibutani. They have finished second at the past two nationals and were the 2011 world bronze medalists.

Championship Men's Short Program (7:30 p.m. – 10:55 p.m.)

Jeremy Abbott is the biggest name in this event, and he has his sights set on his fourth U.S. title. His latest championship came last year in San Jose. Adam Rippon was the silver medalist last year and was 13th at last year's world championships, five places behind Abbott. Joshua Farris is another skater to watch — he's the second highest-ranked American in the competition at No. 17. Abbott is ranked seventh.
