In accordance with ISU Communication 2262, point 7, the ISU must inform the ISU Members at the latest 45 days prior to the entry deadline of the respective Championships if the announced required Minimum Total Elements Scores will be adjusted.
Based on the analysis of the current entries’ situation, the ISU Council has decided to increase the Minimum Total Elements Score for the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2020 for Ladies as follows:
SP 2018/19 or 2019/20: 30.00
FS 2018/19 or 2019/20: 51.00
The Minimum Total Elements Scores for the other disciplines (Pair Skating, Men, Ice Dance) remain unchanged as per ISU Communicaton 2262, point 7).
The required Minimum Total Elements Scores for the Short Program/Rhythm Dance and the Free Skating/Free Dance to participate in Senior ISU Championships (ISU European Figure Skating Championships, ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships and ISU World Figure Skating Championships) can only be obtained in Senior International Competitions.
The Minimum Total Elements Scores (not including Component Scores) is a Technical Score and must have been reached in an ISU recognized International Competition (as per Article 39, paragraph 7 of the ISU Constitution and Rule 107, paragraphs 1 to 10 of the ISU General Regulations) during the ongoing or immediately preceding season in both segments, Short Program/Rhythm Dance and Free Skating/Free Dance (See ISU Special Regulations Single & Pair Skating Ice Dance, Rule 378, paragraph 3).
While the Minimum Total Elements Scores must be reached separately in each segment (not a total of the two segments), the Minimum Total Elements Scores for each segment may be reached at different competitions.
The Minimum Total Elements Score must be reached 21 (twenty-one) days before the first day (first official practice day) of the Championships concerned (same as entry deadline)
