I think it is funny the different opinions of prestige of the different eve
nts. I will have to say Olympics ,ECC and Worlds has the prestige do to age. Due to the fact that i didn't start following figures skating til the 90's . They are not that important to me as a fan. As a fan the GP series is where the will competition is and is what i care about the most . The rest a fun traditional showcases for me. ECC only show case European skaters so it leaves a lot to yearn for. At 1/3 of the top skaters cant even compete at Worlds. It still a huge event to win do to the competition but the GPF is just as hard or even harder to win. So it is proably different view of a skater but for me the GP is the meat and potatoes and the rest is just dessert. The whole way isu has competitions set up is kind backwards compared to most sports were the prestigious events are the hardest to win and have the highest level of competition. To win the gpf you have have 6 good performances. To win worlds you might need four, possibly only two if your patrick chan.
