Yogeeta: So let’s move onto today’s episode. We’re going to be discussing four competitions: US Classic International, Lombardia, Junior Grand Prix Amber Cup and Junior Grand Prix Canada. Have I survived watching all of these competitions this weekend?
The Challenger Series made it’s first stop in North America this week in Salt Lake City for the US International Figure Skating Classic. This event hosted a contingent of 5 pairs, 11 men, 7 ice dance teams, and 15 ladies. All vying for a spot on the podium and points toward their world rank. Unfortunately this event was geo-blocked and only available for US viewers who purchased an NBC Gold subscription pass for figure skating.
This event saw the season debut for many top skaters, marking first looks at new programs costumes and improvements from last season. All event results information, including protocols, can be found here.
