    The grand prix solely decides the team medals, with the top three scores from each team to count. The grand prix also acts as a qualifier for the grand prix special, which takes place on Friday, 8 September, and from which the first set of individual medals are decided. The top 30 combinations from the grand prix will qualify to compete in the special.
