With the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics approaching, China's figure skating team vows to make the most of the home Grand Prix to technically and emotionally fine-tune routines aimed at achieving golden results in South Korea.

Team China is in its final preparations for the Nov 4-5 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating China Cup at Beijing's Capital Gymnasium.

The third stop of the six-event international series will feature 60 skaters from 11 countries, competing for medals in men's and women's singles, pairs and ice dance. Team China is led by world champion pair Han Cong and Sui Wenjing and men's singles world championship bronze medalist Jin Boyang. "The event is a very important assessment for us in terms of how should we continue to improve for the ultimate test at Pyeongchang," head coach Zhao Hongbo told China Daily on Wednesday.
