WEEKLY ICENETWORK.COM “WORLD FIGURE SKATER RANKINGS” RELEASED

WEEKLY ICENETWORK.COM “WORLD FIGURE SKATER RANKINGS” RELEASED


Colorado Springs, Colo. (Nov. 26, 2007) – The medal-winning performances at last weekend’s Cup of Russia enabled several upward shifts in this week’s icenetwork.com World Figure Skater Rankings.

Ladies

The ladies again saw a change at No. 1, thanks to the gold medal won at the Cup of Russia by Korea’s Yu-Na Kim. The win enabled Kim to overtake Japan’s Mao Asada for the top spot and open up a nearly 25-point lead over her. Finland’s Kiira Korpi, Canada’s Joannie Rochette and American Bebe Liang all saw two-position gains as a result of their finishes in Moscow.


Pairs

Russian pair Yuko Kawaguchi and Alexander Smirnov jumped three spots after their bronze-medal-winning performance at the Cup of Russia. The seventh-place finish of Estonians Maria Sergejeva and Ilja Glebov enabled them to make their first appearance in the rankings, bumping Americans Brooke Castile and Ben Okolski out of the top 20.

Ice Dance

French ice dancers Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzat made a three-position gain after securing silver at the Cup of Russia. Following their bronze-medal-winning performance at the Cup of Russia, Ukrainians Anna Zadorozhniuk and Sergei Verbillo made their debut in the top 20. Last week’s No. 20, Azerbaijan’s Kristin Fraser and Igor Lukanin, fell out of the top 20 this week.

A skater or team’s ranking is determined by the total points accumulated since the 2005-06 season. This points-based system takes into account both national and international competitions. Skaters not competing in the 2007-08 season will not be considered for the rankings. More information about the criteria for ranking can be found on icenetwork.com. The icenetwork.com World Figure Skater Rankings will be updated on icenetwork.com each Monday.
