they changed on July 24 -2018. I already had my tickets when I got the info. But as I went to Japan I could not take days off from work, so I didn't need that change. But I know someone who already had tickets, hotel and took his flight back living on Saturday morning and was unhappy. If he knew about that he definitively would have stayed until Sunday evening, but when itWhen did they change the rules? I was looking at the visa when the tickets for Europeans became available and my understanding was that it was just 5 days without visa?
I think so. Skaters ('A team') have done 4CC in Asia 2-3 weeks after Nats. Australia isn't that much further in terms of plane travel - I think 18 hours vs 14 hours from the eastern U.S.?Well, that gives 3 weeks between the 2 events, I think.
That seems doable?
That was unexpected.ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships to be held in Sydney, AUS on February 8-14, 2021
I just looked up flight times from LAX to Sydney, Taipei (which has hosted four out of the past nine Four Continents Championships), and Montpellier (site of 2022 Worlds) on www.travelmath.com.4CCs is always challenging for the U.S. athletes as it is, and adding 10 more hours (right?) to the plane trip isn’t going to make it easier.
Those locations have been announced already. It's in the first postlooks like they held off in announcing jr worlds and 4cc 2022
2022 Four Continents Championships (January 17-22)
2022 World Junior Championships (March 7-13)
Tashkent UZB (venue would be the brand new Humo Arena
I would imagine that Stockholm would hold Worlds in either Hovet, (Hovet is used by both AIK and Djurgårdens IF but it's actually very small), Ericsson Globe (used for 2015 Euros) or Tele2 Arena (which is where they have proposed to have the figure skating if they get the 2026 Olympic bid (I think)).Btw. does anybody know which arena will host the Stockholm worlds? Any ideas in which part of the city to look for accommodation,...?
I'd be happy either way, and won't be a factor in whether or not I go. Dance is at least eight deep that even a full B team is worth seeing, and, for me, even preferable. I don't think Nathan Chen will be able to take time off then anyway if he's still in school, and Men below top 3-4 are interesting skaters, most of whom won't be chosen for SA. There are so many US Pairs at pretty much the same level, along with some younger teams, and unless US Pairs beat the odds at 2020 Worlds, at least one Pair at 4C's will be the "B" team, and Ladies are Ladies.(Otherwise, my fear is that our B team could be sent, as during Olympic years, which would be less than ideal.)
