Cup of China cancelled

On Monday, the International Skating Union (ISU) announced the cancellation of the ISU Grand Prix series event in Chongqing, China which was scheduled to take place from November 5 to 7.

The reasons for the decision were cited as there being a limited number of international flights to China and strict restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ISU is looking to move the event to a different country and issued an invitation for ISU Members to apply to host the competition on the same date.

Last season, the Chinese Skating Association held an all-Chinese competition at the Cup of China and then cancelled the ISU Grand Prix Final which was supposed to take place in China’s capital Beijing.

Participants at the 2021 Cup of China had been announced earlier this summer and include Anna Shcherbakova, Loena Hendrickx, Bradie Tennell, Mikhail Kolyada, Yuma Kagiyama, Daniel Grassl, and Alexandra Stepanova & Ivan Bukin, among others.
