Participants16 from 6 countries
FormatEach judge ranked each pair by Ordinal Placement from first through last place. The Ordinal Placement for each judge was based on Total Points awarded by that judge to the pairs. Final placement was determined by a Majority Placement rule. Thus, if a pair were ranked first by a majority of the judges, that pair was placed first overall, and the process was repeated for each place. If no absolute majority for a place existed, the tiebreakers were, in order: 1) Total Ordinals, 2) Total Points, 3) Compulsory Figure Points.

In the pairs, Walter and Ludowika Jakobsson-Eilers won easily, being placed first by all judges. They were the favorites, having been World Champions in 1911 and 1914 and they would win that title again in 1923. They had also been runners-up at the World Championships in 1910, and 1912-1913, and 1922. In 1924 at Chamonix, the Jakobssons returned at the 1st Olympic Winter Games, and won a silver medal in the pairs. The 1920 silver medalists, Yngvar Bryn and Bryn, were the 1912 world bronze medalists and placed second to the Jakobssons again at the 1923 World Championships. Yngvar Bryn had also competed at the 1900 Olympic Games as a sprinter, running in the 200 and 400 metres.
