I'm wondering how will the starting order for men's and ladies' sp be determined? I remember before, they seed all the skaters, and #1 seeded skater goes to skate in group A, and #2 skates in group B, and so on...

Did that change this year? Is the first half strictly lower ranked skaters? and second half higher ranked skaters? Will they even divide the second half into lower and higher ranked skaters even further?
