Throughout this weekend is the ISU World Finale and the final event for most skaters this season. It has been pretty tough for just about everyone to come back to Europe after the Olympics and have more races on their calendar before they can hang their skates up for a while and enjoy the off season.
Today is the 5,000m finale in which Shane Dobbin will be taking the start line. He is currently ranked in 14th in the overall and in the World Cup Finale only the top 24 athletes in the ISU World ranking are allowed to start. Shane Dobbin is paired with Norwegian, Henrik Christiansen in pair number six.
