Kiira’s back on ice!

Kiira’s finally chosen her first competition after a long time: she’ll be back on ice at Golden Spin in Zagreb – Croatia, from 5 to 7 of December. In Finland, many were hoping to see her taking part in Finlandia Trophy in Espoo, at the beginning of this month, but she preferred keep on training in California, and take no further risks, after the injury resolved by an operation in Munich.

Hyvää syntymäpäivää, Kiira!

So many wishes from all of us!
Paljon onnea vaan!

ome back soon, and kick some ass!

Incoming season

Due to last season, completely skipped because of her injury, Kiira won’t take part in next ISU Grand Prix events:

http://isuprod.blob.core.windows.net/media/155348/gp_ladies.pdf

So, probably she’ll select some of new “ISU Challenger Series“: 11 competitions to get more points for ranking (but only for best 5 classified!), and in addition winners can substitute some skater who’d miss a Grand Prix’s event. It’s allowed a maximum of three, and there’s a money award not so insignificant as well.
But, at the moment, didn’t have been too many entries for these Series, so ISU decided to reduce the required number, from 15 to 8. First three competitions will be held in September:

USA –  International Figure Skating Classic, Salt Lake City (from 10/09 to 14/09)
Italy – Lombardia Trophy, Sesto San Giovanni, Milan (from 18/09 to 21/09)
Germany – Nebelhorn Trophy, Oberstdorf (from 25/09 to 27/09)

Which one of these will be chosen by Kiira for coming back?
