Team USA’s lineup features a pair of U.S. silver medalists. Ice dancers Madison Chock and Evan Bates look to ride the wave of success they enjoyed in the second half of last season. Alexa Scimeca and Chris Knierim won the U.S. silver medal in their first season together. Agnes Zawadzki, the two-time reigning U.S. bronze medalist, won her first Grand Prix medal (bronze) last year at Rostelecom Cup. Zawadzki just made a coaching change (switching from Christy Krall to Tom Zakrajsek, but remaining at same training facility) in early October. Representing the men’s contingent, Richard Dornbush will make his second Cup of China appearance (2011). He is the 2011 U.S. silver medalist. The pairs team of Felicia Zhang and Nate Bartholomay competed at 2013 Hilton HHonors Skate America two weeks ago, while ice dancers Alexandra Aldridge and Daniel Eaton, two-time World Junior bronze medalists, will make their Grand Prix Series debut in Beijing.
