Can someone explain to me?
In the Grand Prix Series...the host nation usually gets to send three skaters. For example, at this years Skate America there will be three American women in the ladies field. That's standard, for all disciplines. Rarely, but on occasion, a country will get to send three skaters to another event they are not hosting. For example, there will also be three American women at Skate Canada as well.
But I have never seen a situation where a nation gets to send three skater in a discipline to three events! There will be three American women at Cup of China as well! The first three events in the series there will be three American women. How does that happen? Not that I'm complaining!
