The 2016 Trophee de France came to a close Nov. 12 in Paris as medals were awarded across all four contested disciplines. The results of the competition helped more skaters secure berths in December's Grand Prix Final, which will take place in Marseille. Here's a look at who claimed 2016-17 Grand Prix of Figure Skating titles and who will advance to the series closer.

A second Russian skater, Maria Sotskova, took home the silver (200.35), while Japan's Wakaba Higuchi scored the bronze (194.48). Gracie Gold, who served as Team USA's sole representative in the ladies' event at the 2016 Trophee de France, saw her struggles continue as she placed only eighth (165.89) out of 12 skaters.
