The 2016-17 Grand Prix of Figure Skating continued Nov. 11 from Paris with the fourth of six scheduled events, the 2016 Trophee de France. Here's a look at the results across all four disciplines contested --pairs, ice dance, men's, and ladies'-- during the short program round of the competition.

Gracie Gold's troubles persist at Trophee de France 2016

Following a less than stellar fifth place finish at Skate America last month, reigning US national champion Gracie Gold's struggles continued during her short program at the 2016 Trophee de France. Her error-filled routine netted her a paltry 54.87, which is the lowest short skate mark she's earned since early 2013.

Only two skaters fared worse, and she sits in just 10th place entering tomorrow's free skate.

Not struggling on the ice was Russia's Evgenia Medvedeva, who earned a sky-high 78.52 for her effort. The reigning Grand Prix Final and world champion stands primed to claim her second gold medal of the series; the first came at Skate Canada last month. Also sitting in medal position are Gabrielle Daleman of Canada (who posted an ISU personal best of 72.70), and Maria Sotskova (68.71) of Russia.

Nathan Chen debuts with gusto

Bolstered by two landed quadruple jumps, American Nathan Chen skated to second place during his Grand Prix series debut on Friday. The 17-year old skater, who won the Junior Grand Prix title last year, earned a 92.85 to finish the men's short program at the 2016 Trophee de France just three points behind leader --and world champion-- Javier Fernandez of Spain (96.57).

Denis Ten of Kazakhstan ranks third (89.21), while American Adam Rippon sits just out of the medals in fourth (85.25).

Savchenko and Massot best the pairs

In the pairs competition at the 2016 Trophee de France, Aliona Savchenko and Bruno Massot of Germany notched a 77.55 to put themselves in first place following the short.

A pair of Russian couples --Skate America bronze medalists Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov (76.24) and Natalia Zabiiako and Alexander Enbert (71.36), who earned silver behind Savchenko and Massot at least week's 2016 Rostelecom Cup-- rank second and third. The sole American pair in the mix, Marissa Castelli and Mervin Tran, rank fifth with a 59.25.

World champs on top in ice dancing

Finally, in ice dancing, reigning world champions Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron of France skated to a substantial lead with a short dance mark of 78.26. Russians Elena Ilinykh and Ruslan Zhiganshin, who placed fifth at Skate America 2016, rank second (68.72), while Skate America silver medals Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue of Team USA sit in bronze medal position (66.77).

Action from the 2016 Trophee de France will conclude with the free skate portion of the competition on Nov. 12.
