Italy replaces Cup of China in ISU Grand Prix series

The International Skating Union (ISU) announced that Turin will host the third stage of the 2021-2022 ISU Grand Prix series, following the cancellation of the Cup of China two weeks ago.

The Italian Ice Sports Federation will hold the event from November 5 to 7 at the Torino Palavela. According to the ISU, the location was selected over Debrecen in Hungary and Norwood, Massachusetts in the United States.


As a reminder, the decision to cancel the event in Chongqing was cited as there being a limited number of international flights to China and strict restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
