The ISU lifts some restrictions on Gay Games skaters for the first time.
“What it will feel like to the skater is that these events are on one day and other events are on the other day. It won’t seem that different. But there will be different judging panels based on what’s required for certification.”
This should be the most inclusive figure skating event at a Gay Games, with people freer than ever to compete. With the open door from the ISU, it may also attract more non-LGBT competitors. We’re not sure Eric Radford or Ashley Wagner will suddenly show up, but who knows!
