Four Continents Figure Skating Championships

The Four Continents Figure Skating Championships (4CC) is an annual figure skating competition. The International Skating Union established it in 1999 to provide skaters representing non-European countries with a similar competition to the much older European Figure Skating Championships. The event's name refers to Africa, the Americas, Asia and Oceania (four of the continents represented in the Olympic rings, omitting Europe). Medals are awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.

Historically, the 4CC has been dominated by just four countries - Canada, China, Japan, and the United States, which have won a combined 247 out of 252 possible medals. Kazakhstan, South Korea, Uzbekistan and North Korea are the only other countries to have placed in the 4CC.

Qualifying

Skaters must belong to a non-European member nation of the ISU. Each member country may enter up to three skaters or teams in each discipline, provided they obtain the minimum TES in the current or previous season. National governing bodies select their entries according to their own criteria. As with the other senior ISU Championships, eligible skaters must be at least fifteen before July 1 of the previous year.

As of 2018 Championships, the following countries are eligible to send skaters to the competition: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, D.P.R. Korea, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Malaysia, Mexico, Mongolia, Morocco, New Zealand, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United States, and Uzbekistan.[1]
