On August 28, at the press conference held in Chongqing for the SHISEIDO Cup of China ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating 2019, it was announced that the Grand Prix will be held in Chongqing from November 8 to November 10.
The SHISEIDO Cup of China ISU Grand Prix 2019 is the 4th stop out of 6 on the ISU Grand Prix circuit, and has attracted 60 athletes from 10 countries/regions. The November event will be the first time Chongqing will host an international level figure skating competition, which is expected to boost the development of ice and snow sports in Southeastern China.
The SHISEIDO Cup of China ISU Grand Prix 2019 not only comes to a new city and welcomes new friends, but also finds a new title sponsor in SHISEIDO. By integrating music, dance and fashion together, figure skating is known as the‘most beautiful sport in the world’. Figure skaters not only exhibit their skills, but are also performing an art, which sits well with the image of SHISEIDO, which highly values ‘Science & Art’.
The SHISEIDO Cup of China will see many top figure skaters competing in the Men’s Singles, Women’s Singles, Pairs and Ice Dance, including two-time World Champions Sui Wenjing and Han Cong, and last year’s Grand Prix Final runners up Peng Cheng and Jin Yang. The six skaters in each discipline with the highest total scores will then compete in the Grand Prix Final.
