The Champions Series Final was the culminating event of the ISU Champions Series, which consisted of Skate America, Skate Canada International, Nations Cup, Trophée de France, and NHK Trophy. The top six skaters from each discipline competed in the final. This was a precursor to what became the Grand Prix Final of Figure Skating

In some cases I have provided an alternate performance from the nearest competition so the competition can be approximated. What can I say, I like having an event handy and in order so I can view it quickly in as much detail as I want...Enjoy!
