ISU GIVES SOME STRUCTURE TO FIGURE SKATING SEASON

     The Int'l Skating Union has "linked five existing
competitions to form what it calls a Grand Prix circuit and has
added a new event, the Grand Prix Final," according to Neil
Stevens of the CANADIAN PRESS.  Now the world's top skaters will
be vying for more than $2.5M this season.  Much of the financing
comes from a TV deal with Fox.  The '97 Grand Prix has been
awarded to Canada.  The purpose of the "bold initiative" is to
keep skaters on the Int'l Skating Union scene longer
(CP/Vancouver PROVINCE, 8/25).
