international team competition


(x, x, x)

If you don’t want to read all of Hockey USA’s statement, these are the three most explosive parts which really show that USA Hockey is not sympathetic to the players situation: 

“USA Hockey trains and selects teams for international competition. USA Hockey’s role is not to employ athletes and we will not do so.”

“The support USA Hockey is implementing […] could result in each player receiving $85,000 in cash over the Olympic training and performance period.” (which is a very misleading statement that’s addressed in Monique Lamoureux’s response to the statement)

“USA Hockey…will field a competitive team for the upcoming 2017 IIHF Women’s World Championship.”

anonymous asked:

When is the next figure skating competition? Idk what the official names for these are but like they're the same level as something like 4cc and its seniors? Idk if this even makes sense lol thank you for taking the time to read and answer!

Thanks for asking!

Presumably, you’re talking about international Senior competitions, probably ISU Championships since you mention 4CC. As we are now in the tail end of the season, the next ISU Championship event for Seniors is the World Figure Skating Championships, in Helsinki, Finland. This will be held from March 29 to April 2.

After that, some of the top skaters will compete at the World Team Trophy in Japan from April 20-23. Not all of the top skaters will be there and it’s likely many will skip, especially since next season is the Olympic season. One WTT is done, that’s the end of the international season.

We have just overtaken China in the medals…! And theres another guaranteed gold to come because the final of the cycling men’s sprint only has British competitors

Lets enjoy second place whilst it lasts folks this is incredible
