Would someone kindly tell me..?
It is reported here in Japan that Mao starts her competition season with the "International Counter Match Competition" on 29 - 30 Sept., in Sapporo, Japan.
Is this the Campbell's Cup that was initially said to be held alternately between USA and Japan?
Or has the Campbell's become "US Figure Skating International Challenge" on 10 - 14 Oct. somewhereTBD, USA ?
BTW, "Japan Open" is again on this list of schedule on 29 Apr.'08....Three similar formats though each bit different doesn't look neat nor tidy to me. Same format held in North America, Europe, and Asia, in rotation, changing members, limitting to eligible skaters, would be more reasonable and worthwhile, IMO.
PS There's been some articles about Mao in sports-newspapers here since late March, which I might translate and post their excerpts on morninglight's thread "fascinations with a quad", when (and if) I have time .
