How could it possibly come first?

Only a handful of countries compete in the team event. Isn't it a HUGE advantage to get 1-2 routines out of the way on Olympic ice solely from a pressure perspective?

At least in gymnastics the qualification round is all at once, so every single athlete goes through qualifications at the same time to get to the team, AA and event finals.

i.e., you're taking the cynical view that the top national skating federations pushed for this in order to help their studs in the individual events, right?

i was taking for granted that since figure skating is one of the biggest draws at the games they're going to have the most competitive events come later

I don't think the idea is bad. I think it's a fun competition, and I do think there is value in rewarding a deep national team -- like with the gymnastics team event.

I just think it should come last.
