2011 Finlandia Trophy: Entries & Event Schedule

 With the O Nepela Memorial officially in the books, we look ahead to the next ISU Senior B event, the Finlandia Trophy. This annual event kicks off in less than a week and features some very big names, especially in ice dance. We haven't had live streams or live-scoring for the first two Senior B events of the season but youtube videos have been appearing so hopefully we'll get the same for Finlandia. I've converted the event schedule to Eastern Standard Time so we know exactly when to expect the results. The competition roster is also listed below, including none other than World and Olympic Champions Virtue & Moir, World bronze medalists Shibutani & Shibutani, and newly formed US dance team Chock & Bates.
