The International Skating Union (ISU) has published the 2013-2014 Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series schedule. First up is Skate America where 2010 Olympic Champion Evan Lysacek is scheduled to compete! Evan sat out the last two seasons so all eyes will be on him to see if he is back to Olympic caliber form. He and reigning US champion Max Aaron have taken two of the three slots allotted to the US men so that means one mysterious TBA slot remains to be filled. The US can only send two men to the Olympics so every chance to compete at the international level is coveted.
Below is the complete 2013-2014 Senior Grand Prix schedule:
- October 18 - October 20, 2013: Hilton HHonors Skate America (Detroit. Michigan) List of entrants in singles, pairs and ice dance.
