    ISU Ranking

    I was looking at ISU ranking for figure skating the other day, and it looks like only your best score from one ISU championship, two Grand Prix events and 2 other events count per year. Does that mean that winning all available ISU championship (Worlds, Juniors, Euros/4CC) confer no additional benefit in comparison to just winning Worlds and blowing up on Euros or 4CC?

    Yeah, only one of the major events per season counts. So Yu-Na Kim as an example already has the maximum points she's going to get this year, as the Olympics and World Championships carry the same value.

    And just so you know-- the way that they come up with your ranking score is they take the 2 best Championship scores from the last three years, and then the four best both Grand Prix and other competition scores to determine the total.

    So maybe the Ice Network rankings are more close to our general conception of each skater's strength?
