    thorag, the announcement noted only the SM MoA rink, so I think it's that rink only. There is another SM Mall rink in Metro Manila (SM Southmall) but AFAIK it's not Olympic-sized. There was no mention of another rink being used in the e-mail I received, just that the first 4 days were on-ice and off-ice training, while the last day would be the competition proper. I am supposing that while the event is going on, commercial activities will be suspended. And to maximize the ice time, the participants will be allowed before/after the usual mall hours.

    ISU World Development Trophy's website used to be on ISU website, but I can't find it now. Why did they delete it from the website? They have JGP events(Latvia, Mexico, Slovakia) and WTT there but they decided to delete Development Trophy from their list?

    Results from the European development trophy in Poland. It was a four days training camp for novices and juniors, ending with a competition, a Free Skate. Represented countries see first post. Not many boys competing.

    Junior Angelina Kuchvalska from Latvia got 82.35 points which I think isn't bad for a "developer".

    As a contrast:

    Sarra EL Oufir from Moroco got TES 1.90: 1S 0.30, Steps 0.90, 1S + 1T 0.10 and a spin 0.60.

    Congrats to the Nordic girls. Juni from Norway and the Islandic girls did quite well Latvian and Slovenian girls also. Hope they continue skating and maybe we'll see some of them at international competitions in the future.

    Anyways, I'm sure all of them had a great time. Anyone knows more about this event and who the teachers were?

    The ISU's own report:

    First ISU World Development Trophy
    01 April 2013

    Excerpt:
    For some of the participants it was the first time that they could compete in an ISU sanctioned event and take part in classes with famous Figure Skating coach and four time Ukrainian champion Mr Valentin Nikolaev. Other moderators included Ms Yevgeniya Gres, who specializes in demonstrating figure skating elements and Mr Sarkis Tewanian an ISU Technical Specialist.

    I know the Icelandic delegation was very happy with the event and their coach Iveta Reitmayerova spoke highly of it too. Lets hope they will have another one.

    I am also very curious about this event. By any chance, has anyone come across a list of the participating skaters? Im excited to see Michael Christian Martinez and at the prospect of seeing a triple axel live. TIA!

    Unfortunately, real life has kept me busy. :( I wasn't able to go...

    ETA:
    Some articles from the web:
    Philippine Star (newspaper): http://www.philstar.com/sports/2013/...r-way-moa-rink
    ABS-CBN (media network): http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/sports/04...-isu-skatefest

    SM's facebook page (with some photos): https://www.facebook.com/smiceskating (Apparently Michael Christian Martinez did an exhibition number)

    Some vids I came across from YT:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdiT4ZF4Urg
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7eMe4Hykog
    Elia Mariel Mendoza (Basic Novice A - Ladies) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2gUrkbHfYs (6th, according to the ABS-CBN article)
    Keith Stephanie Angeles (Basic Novice B -Ladies) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iglUmCWU68

    ABS-CBN's rival network GMA 7 supposedly covered it. As I have not watched TV for months, I have absolutely no idea if they've shown it already on their news channel. Tried to contact them, waiting for reply. Perhaps there are Philippine-based Goldenskate members who know more..? Hopefully other videos/reports surface. (Dang you, real life)

    protocols are posted on ISU website

    looks like there were no Advanced Novices. It seems that a lot of the junior ladies at this event have competed in the ISU scene and at JGP as opposed to the European equivalent. I wonder what the criteria was that got sent to member federations.
