I just noticed new "experimental" competition format organized by the Slovak New Years Cup organizers.
Although experimental, perhaps it may catch on and spark more interest in this beautiful sport. It was said to see half empty lower seating sections in Grand Prix events (both USA and Canada). If I understand it correctly, the final even will be elimination style competition and one would be able to see all the best skaters in all categories.
They must have got blessings from the ISU, so it may be a way we will see competition in the future.
Here is their web site:
