OTTAWA, ON: Skate Canada has qualified five entries for a total of eight skaters for the ISU Grand Prix Final in Barcelona, Spain from December 10-13, 2015. The ISU Senior Grand Prix Final will be held jointly with the ISU Junior Grand Prix Final.
The Canadian team will consist of:
SENIOR ICE DANCE
The ISU Senior Grand Prix Final is the concluding event of the ISU Senior Grand Prix of Figure Skating circuit. The series hosts six stops: United States (Skate America), Canada (Skate Canada International), China (Cup of China), France (Trophée Eric Bompard), Russia (Rostelecom Cup), and Japan (NHK Trophy). Skaters are awarded points based on their placements at their assigned two events and the top six in each of the four disciplines advance to the Final.
Due to the tragic events in France that caused the cancellation of the free program and free dance segments of the Grand Prix event in Bordeaux, there has been an adjustment to the qualifying process. Any first substitute skater/team that placed 7th in the 2015/16 Grand Prix ranking has been invited to the Final, provided that they skated the short program or short dance at the event in Bordeaux.
Similar to the senior qualification, juniors are assigned two events on the seven-event series. Only the top six in each category advance to the Final.
