ISU GIVES SOME STRUCTURE TO FIGURE SKATING SEASON
Published August 25, 1995
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).
