3.6.2 Skating competitions for adults

In addition to competitions with "adult" categories, competitions open
only to adults are held in USA, Canada, Great Britain, Germany and
France. International adult competitions (such as the "Mountain Cup",
which takes place every year around May in the French Alps) often use
the USFSA test level and age categories. The categories for freestyle
are shown below.
