ISU Grand Prix event #5 - the Rostelecom Cup takes place in Moscow

Skate Canada has published an article about the Canadian team participating in the event which runs from Nov. 19th to 22nd.

The schedule/entries/results can be found on the ISU website.

CBC will be providing TV coverage on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and plans a live stream of the free skates on Saturday morning, beginning at 5:50 a.m. EST. The schedule can be found on the two tabs here.

The world standings points gained by placements after the short program at the Trophée Eric Bompard (TEB) have apparently been used to determine start order for any TEB competitors also competing at the Rostelecom Cup.

The standings for qualifying for the Grand Prix Final (GPF) have not yet been updated with the TEB short program (SP) results, however, nor has the ISU made an announcement about how this is to be handled. The initial suggestion was to consider the standings after the SP to be final and used as if the full competition had been completed. The Russian Federation, with the support of some other federations, is said to have put forward an alternate suggestion - to use the SP results but to allow up to 2 additional spots per discipline at the GPF for any TEB participants who ended up in the 7th or 8th spots in the qualifying standings after all six events were complete. An ISU decision was expected before November 19th but has not yet been published, if it has been taken.
