2019/20 ISU Grand Prix Final - Torino, Italy - Dec. 5-8, 2019

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

With the completion of the final senior GP event, the NHK Trophy, the six spots in each discipline have now been filled and the next three spots (alternates) identified.

These are currently "unofficial" but should be made official soon: Image

Jackie Wong has done a preview for the Junior Grand Prix Final - it's especially good for those who might not have followed the series up to this point.

The ISU stream for the juniors has Ted Barton commentating, as he did through the series.

For the senior stream we actually have commentary too - this is by Chris Howarth who normally works for British Eurosport. He, like Ted, is a former skater.
