It is pretty likely Cheltzie will get a spot I think, right? Once people decline. I hope she gets Cup of China :cheer2:

(wishful thinking, I know)

Yeah and then Cup of China can be held in Hong Kong, or better yet, Macau :P

(but then we only have mall rinks :scream:)

Get Cheltzie Lee an event already!

It would be GREAT if Cheltzie got a Grand Prix! The skating fans have been very supportive and welcoming of young Cheltzie on the circuit. She's improved the image of Australian international skaters I think. Cheltzie's done a great job skating on ice only 10hrs a week.

NOW the real test will be for Australia to support and develop her to her true potential!! A start would be to skate more and get those other jumps more consistent! Her camp has been pretty quiet!

I hope she does get a Grand Prix! :cheer:

There's a long interview & article on Cheltzie Lee at Golden Skate this week.

http://www.goldenskate.com/articles/2009/061310.shtml

As to her competitive plans for this year, if invited, she will skate seniors. If she can't skate seniors, and is invited, she will skate on the JGP. However:


Lee is still unsure of what her international schedule might hold for her this season, but being ranked in the top fifty on the season's best list bodes well for Grand Prix invitations...

Ranked 68th in the ISU standings, Lee believes that even if she does not get a Grand Prix invitation, her support team will work diligently to earn entry into other international competitions such as the Junior Grand Prix.

"My team will actually look at this option during planning over the next week or so," Lee shared. "It's most likely that my first formal competition with be Australian Nationals, and I am looking forward to it."

why is she only skating 10 hrs a week? Is there no more ice in Australia?

Last season she was always in a nook with a book in hand studying. I do know she's a top student. Quite often I have asked this of her mother and was told that distance and the demands of school limits her time on ice. CAnterbury rink where Cheltzie trains probably have more ice available than any other rink in Sydney but none of the rinks have figure sessions all day. The rinks are open for school sport and public sessions also. So different here as we don't have 45 mins sessions running all day. So she is quite limited. She seems to improve leaps and bounds going away to train.

jlai has started a separate thread for this article and I've copied over some of the Cheltzie-related posts here and reposted them there -- link: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?p=2788899#post2788899

ETA: Cheltzie Lee has the highest ranked SB score of the ladies without a GP assignment and it would be great to see her get one, but it's possible that the ladies with 1 GP ahead of her may be given priority for a 2nd assignment. We'll have to wait and see.

I would love for Sarah to finally win the Euro title on Swiss ice! I really hope she is healthy and trained to the point where she can make that a reality. :cheer2:

It's interesting that Mirai is not skating in Japan, and Caroline is not skating in China ( unless she makes the Final). I have read that each one has somewhat of a fan base in their respective ancestral homes.



I think Caroline should switch to represent China. I don't think she's going anywhere in the US and as pretty as Liu is, Caroline is still much better, flaws and all.


I do understand that on a liberal, progressive message board such as this, one should never use such antiquated, cold-war expressions like "communist dictatorship", ( so I won't ) , but I would be very surprised if Caroline skates for China.

I have to say how it confirms to me the GP assingments are fake after another. How the hell could Mysliveckova / Novak couldnīt get one (as well as Mallory / Rand or Coomes / Buckland) once we see Turoczy / Major (and I donīt have anything against) and other moving juniors there. :duh::wall::angryfire

What is the deadline for the skaters to confirm their participation?
I have a vague memory that it was some time in August in 2009 but I canīt find the date for this year.

If I was Australian Fed, I'd do EVERYTHING I could to send her abroad to train. She is the only Australian skater competing at present with real potential.

I think a lot of us would use those expressions but as jlai said, this discussion should be held in PI. ;)

Oh well, what else is new... :rolleyes: :mad: :angryfire

It's always this way, every year. :(
