Predict figure skating world championship ranking from season performances (FunkSVD + learning to rank)

Follow the full discussion on Reddit.
I'm trying to predict the ranking of figure skaters in the annual world championship by their scores in earlier competition events in the season. The obvious method to do is by average the scores for each skater across past events and rank them by those averages. However, since no two events are the same, the goal for my project is to separate the skater effect, the intrinsic ability of each skater, by the event effect, how an event influence the score of a skater.
