ISU Junior Grand Prix - 2021-2022

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.

A big change announced by the ISU today - no JPG event in Canada; there will be two back-to-back in France.

From: [url]https://www.isu.org/isu-news/news/ ... teParam=15[/url]
With the ongoing uncertainty surrounding international travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Skate Canada informed the International Skating Union it has cancelled the second ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating, the event was scheduled to take place from August 25-28, 2021, at Meadows Arena in Edmonton Canada.

For the past 18 months, Skate Canada has closely monitored the provincial and federal health authorities’ position on the global health crisis and is committed to the health and safety of the athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, and spectators. Like last season, due to the federal quarantine guidelines for all travellers and social distancing requirements in effect at this time, Skate Canada regretfully made the decision to cancel the event.

Following the decision of Skate Canada, the Figure Skating Event Coordination team and Figure Skating Working Group worked on a proposal based on input from each of the seven Junior Grand Prix hosts and whether they would be interested in hosting more than one Junior Grand Prix in case of need.

The Fédération Française des Sports de Glace (FFSG) confirmed their willingness and feasibility to host two Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Events back-to-back in Courchevel and the ISU Council agreed to allot them the second Junior Grand Prix. Consequently the first two ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating events of the series will take place in Courchevel (FRA) on August 18-21 and August 25-28, 2021.

Due to the lack of a practice rink in Courchevel, the Pair Skating event which was planned in Canada, will move to the sixth ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating event in Gdansk (POL) on September 29-October 2, 2021.

The ISU regrets that the hosting of the ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating in Edmonton (CAN) is no longer viable, but is pleased that an alternative solution could be found to give Junior Skaters an opportunity to compete. The ISU thanks Skate Canada, the FFSG and Polish Figure Skating Association for their continued effort and support.
The revised JPG schedule:
1st event - August 18-21, 2021 - Courchevel / FRA
2nd event - August 25-28, 2021 - Courchevel / FRA
3rd event (incl. Pair Skating) - September 1-4, 2021 - Kosice / SVK
4th event (incl. Pair Skating) - September 15-18, 2021 - Krasnoyarsk / RUS
5th event - September 22-25, 2021 - Ljubljana / SLO
6th event (incl. Pair Skating) - Sept.29 –Oct.2, 2021 - Gdansk / POL
7th event (incl. Pair Skating) - October 6-9, 2021 - Linz / AUT
