Skating friends! We are now officially in the month of October, which means we have already seen the debuts of most of our favorite skaters and that Grand Prix are right around the corner!
We do have a good lineup at Finlandia Trophy this week- I am excited to see Adam Rippon's two new programs in the men's competition and very excited to see Julia Lipnitskya back in competitive action before Skate America. Other ladies entries: Elena Radionova, SoYoun Park, Joshi Helgesson, Rika Hongo, and American Hannah Miller. In men's, you will also see Tim Dolensky and Russians Meneshov, Vornov and Majorov. Weaver/Poje headline the dance event, and I am looking forward to seeing Hawayek/Baker's new programs as well. There is a live stream available (so many live streams this preseason!) at http://www.finlandiatrophy.com
Also- JGP Zagreb is happening this week and they are live streaming as well. Check out the event page here.
After this week, we do have the Skate Canada Autumn Classic before we finally get the Grand Prix season underway with Skate America! It's so close, I can almost taste it, guys!
