When China advised the International Skating Union it was returning all its skating allotments for this season, the ISU found a willing host in Skating Finland. Known for its warm hospitality, a united cheer lit up the world when it was announced that this nation would host the third event of the Grand Prix Series, Nov. 2-4.
The seven-hour time difference between Helsinki and the east coast of North America will provide thousands of people the opportunity to watch this competition live online, which would not have been the case if it were held in China.
With the skating king from the “Land of the Rising Sun” — Yuzuru Hanyu — opening his season in the “Land of the Midnight Sun,” finding a ticket will be near to impossible when they go on sale in early August.
