The United States will present its roster for the team event during the Games.
The 2021 World Championships, held from March 22-28, 2021 in Stockholm, Sweden, were the first and main qualification event for the 2022 Winter Olympics. The 2022 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, held from January 3-9 in Nashville, were the final qualification event.
The maximum number of Olympic berths a country could earn was 18, or three athletes/teams in each discipline (women’s, men’s, pairs and ice dancing).
To earn three spots in a discipline, the final rankings of the country’s two best skaters/teams must add up to 13 or fewer. For example, the U.S. earned three berths in men’s figure skating because Nathan Chen and Jason Brown finished first and seventh, respectively, at 2021 Worlds, and their combined rankings (1 + 7) added up to 8. If their combined rankings had equaled 14 or higher, the U.S. would be allowed to send only two male skaters to the 2022 Winter Olympics.
24 men, 24 women, 16 pairs and 19 ice dancing couples earned Olympic berths through this method at the 2021 World Championships.
The remaining spots—6 men, 6 women, 3 pairs and 4 ice dancing couples—were determined by a second qualification competition, the Nebelhorn Trophy in Oberstdorf, Germany, in September 2021.
Eligibility for consideration and selection to the 2022 U.S. Olympic Team was based on qualifying to compete at the national championships. The championships serve as the de facto Olympic Trials event, but American skaters' performances across numerous competitions the past season factored into the selection process.
