COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – U.S. champions Ashley Wagner and Aspen native Jeremy Abbott are among eight skaters who will represent the nation in the World Team Trophy.

The event in Tokyo beginning Thursday features Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Russia and the United States. Teams consist of two women, two men, one pair and one ice dancing couple. The scores of each team’s skaters in the short programs/dance and free skates/dance will be added together and the highest point total wins.

Wagner, fourth at last month’s world championships, and U.S. junior champion Gracie Gold will join Abbott and Adam Rippon. Caydee Denney and John Coughlin, the 2012 U.S. champions in pairs, and four-time U.S. winners Meryl Davis and Charlie White in ice dance also will participate.
