The United States won three medals on the final day of ISE World Figure Skating Championships 2022. Vincent Zhou took the bronze medal in the men's competition, while ice dancers Madison Hubbel and Zachary Donohue, and Madison Chock and Evan Bates earned silver and bronze, respectively.

This World Championships marks the first time since 1967 that the United States has won a medal in four disciplines. Additionally, with the results this week in France, the United States will have the maximum number of entries into the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2023.
