Oh this is so much better. Send your idea to the ISU!!! (I'm serious)
Makes complete sense. And then give a ~week rest before continuing on with the team event. Figure skating is the second most popular event after hockey and the longer they can drag this out, the better. I always thought figure skating ends too soon anyway.
I can't shake my head enough about having the team event be completed within 3 days, and then giving only 1 day worth of rest before the singles/pairs events start. It just doesn't make sense at any angle.
