Well done ISU this year, in order to improve standard of main competition, there are direct entries based on last years results which I feel is a good idea and then the rest have to qualify.

So now what happens with qualification? are they split into two groups or will there be one group with so many skaters going through to short program. Does anyone know how many go through to short program?

also like last year will they be reduced after short program to 20 for free skate? I did not like this idea

Also the first group of free skaters go way before the last 3 groups another stupid idea , hope that is scrapped too?
