The list of entries is interesting...almost all the skaters are from either Sweden or Finland. It really speak to the proliferance of skaters within those two countries programmes.
Why, though, are there skaters from countries like Germany and the Czech Republic? Last time I checked my map of Europe, those weren't Nordic countries . They're only in pairs and ice dance, so I'm guessing they were invited as guests into the competition.
Anyone know anything about the other skaters aside from the big names like Alisa Drei, Kristoffer Berntsson, Elina Kettunen, etc.? (I noticed there was one skater in Junior Ladies from Iceland, which peaks my curiosity )
