Figure skating

Figure skating was a new sport in Barents Games from 2018. There is a big difference between the countries, but hopefully Barents Games will motivate more athletes to go on for a longer time, and also motivate leaders to help building new ice-arenas.

The figure skating competition will have three categories with the following rules: 

Junior A ladies (SP and FS): ISU Rule 611 (Short program) and Rule 612 (Free skating) for Junior ladies in season 2022-2023
Junior B ladies (SP and FS): as in Junior A ladies, but double Axel Paulsen (2A) is not compulsory in SP 
Junior C ladies (FS): program according to ISU Comm 2489 (Intermediate Novice) 

Each country may enter skaters in all categories so that the total amount of skaters per country does not exceed 12. The draw will be done electronically 2 days before the event. In Junior A and Junior B categories the FS will be held in reverse order based on SP results. 

Each country may also propose a judge for the panel, and the travel and accommodation costs for the judge will be covered by the Barents Committee as a part of the country team. The organizer will nominate the referee and the technical panel. We ask each country to propose a judge for the panel by March 1
