The 2016-17 Grand Prix of Figure Skating series continued Nov. 4-5 with the 2016 Rostelecom Cup in Moscow, Russia. Although athletes representing the home nation claimed the most podium placements with five top-tier performances, Team USA came away with two medals, bringing the nation's series-wide haul to 10: two gold, six silver, and two bronze. Here's a look at the full results from Rostelecom Cup 2016.

Russian women miss out on podium sweep

The trio of young ladies representing home nation Russia at the 2016 Rostelecom Cup had a chance to sweep the podium after finishing the short program one-two-three.

Although Anna Pogorilaya (215.21) and Elena Radionova (195.60) held their positions to take gold and silver, 2014 Olympian Julia Lipnitskaia stopped and restarted her program --likely thanks to a nagging leg injury-- and wound up placing last (148.13). American Courtney Hicks, who ranked sixth after the short, skated an ISU personal best long program (119.30) to claim the bronze (182.98).

Reigning world champion takes men's 2016 Rostelecom Cup gold

On the men's side, reigning world champion Javier Fernandez of Spain won the free skate to take the gold from short program winner Shoma Uno of Japan, 292.98 to 285.07.

Although he lost out on the win, Unobecame the first man to qualify for the 2016 Grand Prix Final, based on his Rostelecom Cup silver and his gold from Skate America 2016. Alexei Bychenko of Israel claimed the bronze (255.52). American Max Aaron finished fifth (235.58).

Germans winpairs title

In the pairs competition, Aliona Savchenko and Bruno Massot won the free skate to take the gold medal (207.89) from short program winners Natalia Zabiiako and Alexander Enbert (197.77) of Russia.

Another Russian pair in the mix, Kristina Astakhova and Alexei Rogonov, earned the bronze with a 188.74. Team USA did not have a couple in the competition.

Chock/Bates second again in ice dance

Finally, in ice dancing, Americans Madison Chock and Evan Bates earned their second silver (182.13) of the 2016-17 Grand Prix of Figure Skating series. Although they posted the highest short program score, Russians Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev (186.68) bested them in the free dance to take the title.

Reigning Grand Prix Final champions Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje of Canada took home the bronze (178.57). The second American couple competing in ice dancing at the 2016 Rostelecom Cup, Elliana Pogrebinsky and Alex Benoit, placed sixth.
