Sui/Han Won't Do Double Duty, Will Only Compete in Senior Final
The ISU entry page for the junior and senior Grand Prix Final events has been updated to reflect the decision that Chinese pairs team Sui and Han will give up their Junior Final spot to first alternates Jones and Gaskell of Canada, and they will focus their energy solely towards the Senior Final. The ISU allows pairs skaters to compete at the junior level and senior level Grand Prix circuits within the same season, but this is the first time a team has done well enough to earn berths to both events. Starting a few seasons ago, The Senior and Junior Grand Prix Finals were combined to take place in one arena over the same weekend.
American ladies skater Kiri Baga has also withdrawn from the Junior Final due to injury, giving first alternate Zijun Li a chance to skate at home in the championship.
