Japan Open 2013

Japan Open is an annual figure skating competition for teams of International Figure Skaters from Europe, Asia and North America.  It is an Invitational event held each Autumn (Fall) in Japan and organized by the Japan Skating Federation. This year's event will take place in Saitama, Japan starting on October 5th, 2013.  Three teams of invited international skaters from Asia, Europe and North America will compete in the disciplines of men's and ladies singles.  The Free Program is skated but not the Short; individual skater's results are then combined for a team total to determine the winner.
