GENEVA, July 13 (Xinhua) -- The International Skating Union (ISU) announced on Monday that the ISU Figure Skating Grand Prix Cup of China and the Grand Prix Final will be held as scheduled in China in 2020.

The ISU said that, following an announcement from the General Administration of Sport of China last week, the ISU received clarification through its Chinese counterparts regarding the ISU Events scheduled to be held in China in 2020.

As the Cup of China event is part of the ISU Grand Prix series and consequently related to the ISU Grand Prix Final which is an Olympic test event, the Chinese Olympic Committee (COC) reportedly agrees that the Cup of China, scheduled to be held from November 6 to 8 in Chongqing, remains scheduled as planned.

The COC's decision not to hold international sports events until the end of the year (2020) does not affect Olympic test events, namely the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final (December 10-13) and the ISU World Cup Short Track event (December 18-20) to be held at the Olympic venue in Beijing.

The ISU Council will next meet online on August 3 to decide upon the further course of action for ISU Events. Enditem
