The ISU Four Continents Championships have returned to Colorado Springs, Colo. for the first time since 2007. This major international event is sanctioned by the International Skating Union (ISU) and features skaters from the Americas, Asia, Africa and Oceania. Involved in the field are three of the four 2012 U.S. Champions as well as World champions and Olympic medalists.

The competition begins on Thursday at 8:45 p.m ET where 28 men will perform their short program. Americans Adam Rippon, Ross Miner and Richard Dornbush are in the same group as World champion Patrick Chan of Canada. This group is tentatively scheduled to begin skating at 11:14 p.m. ET.

The story lines for the American men are many. Rippon returns to a competition he won two years ago, how will he perform just two weeks after his best-ever finish at a U.S. Championships? Ross Miner took his second straight bronze medal at a U.S. Championships and he also earned Bronze internationally at the NHK Trophy earlier this year, will he be able to hit the podium in his first Four Continents appearance? After placing only 13th at the U.S. Championships, can Richard Dornbush, a late replacement for Jeremy Abbott, put together two clean programs and turn his season around?

Live streams will be available on both icenetwork and Universal Sports. Live coverage will also be shown on Universal Sports.
