2019 Warsaw Cup, the penultimate event of the 2019 Challenger Series, takes place Nov. 14-17 at the COS Torwar II Arena in Warsaw, Poland. This event overlaps with Cup of China. With 112 skaters and/or teams currently on the rosters for the four disciplines, this competition will make for long days.
The men′s event will feature a mix of senior and junior skaters, three of which are headed to the Junior Grand Prix Final in a few weeks (Daniel Grassl, Petr Gumennik and Andrei Mozalev). It will be interesting to see how this trio fares against the seasoned veterans.
Bradie Tennell headlines a ladies field of 40 and is by far the most experienced. She should have no trouble winning this competition. Russia′s Serafima Sakhanovich will be looking for a better finish than the eighth place she achieved at 2019 Skate Canada. For her teammate, Elizaveta Nugumanova, this will be her first competition since 2017.
There are currently 23 pairs teams slated to compete. Familiar names include Jessica Calalang and Brian Johnson of the U.S,, Australlia′s Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya and Harley Windsor, and Great Britain′s Zoe Jones and Christopher Boyadji.
In ice dance, Charlene Guignard and Marco Fabbri headline the field, along with Olivier Smart and Adrian Diaz of Spain and Marie-Jade Lauriault and Romain Le Gac of France. Other teams include Caroline Green and Michael Parsons of the U.S., and Russia′s Ksenia Konkina and Pavel Drozd (a new team that finished second at 2019 Asian Open Trophy).
This competition will be live streamed.
