Another season begins! It's hard to believe we've already reached the halfway point between the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang. A lot can change between now and then but for now, here's where we stand heading into the 2016-2017 season...
So this was a much more massive undertaking than I originally thought. I'm not the Excel wiz I wish I were otherwise this might not have taken so long. Regardless, it was still a fun project. I'm not surprised with the outcome but I am surprised with some of the scores we came up with.
Another busy week in skating though not nearly as busy as last week. I still haven't recovered from last week's epic post but the season continues on and so must I! I'll take a look at Finlandia Trophy as well as JGP Dresden and the JGP final standings.
Oh boy, here we go! This was a massively busy week in the skating world. Four competitions! I'll take a look at Japan Open, JGP Tallinn Cup, the Autumn International Classic and Ondrej Nepela Memorial.
2016 Japan Open
Japan Open is a bit of cheesefest that doesn't really count for anything, but it is a competition that gives us a sneak peek at where some of the bigger names are just a few weeks before the start of the Grand Prix season. (Side note: It was super-weird not seeing Mao Asada here...)
I always look forward to the test skate videos. It's always good to have an idea of what's coming before it gets here, especially when it comes to the Russian women. I saw a number of programs I liked, a few I didn't, and even some I'm on the fence about.
