    It stands to reason that Canada isn't going to send its top echelon skaters to a US event, just as the US probably won't sent its top skaters to the SCI event. But the USI event is still a Challenge event, and that's a plus for skaters like Long and Pineault.

    ^^ as I understand it, and for those who are not aware (and please correct me if I am wrong here) for GP's, there is a hierarchy that the host picks need to follow -host pick meaning they select skaters from a list of names each country submits. Host picks are to be selected from a certain number of skaters from each of the different "tier's" (i.e. Tier 1 would be like a Yuzuru Hanyu, Patrick Chan, Tier 2 would be a lower grouping, and Tier 3 etc.). This makes it more 'fair' and hopefully encourages more local audiences buy tickets to watch the events.

    As for Challenge events, I believe it is the skater's own country who enters them -correct? Or is it similar to GP's?

    The National Summer Series has concluded and the final rankings appear to be posted now.

    https://info.skatecanada.ca/hc/en-ca...798483-Results

    It looks like assignments for Challenger Series events will be based in part on these results. Skaters that had already proven themselves at their first NSS event or had a top 10 finish at 2017 Nationals already got assignments.
