Not very relevant question but Hanyu got to seniors only for Grand Prix? Can he go to Worlds, what is exactly his age?

Yuzuru HANYU (http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00010967.htm)
15 years old for 2010-11 season, so fully Senior eligible.


In ISU Senior Championships and the Olympic Winter Games only
Skaters may compete who have reached at least the age of fifteen (15)
before July 1st preceding these Events;
The age rules were not changed at the 2010 ISU Congress.

Hanyu turned 15 this past December so he is old enough for Four Continents and Worlds in 2010-11. (Ditto for Kanako Murakami -- she turned 15 this past November.)

ETA: All the Japanese skaters receiving funding/support from JSF have their birthdates listed in this useful reference thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=74163

...they will never be technically the strongest, even if they go to Zazoui. They lack the basics for that.

It's always been my impression that she had rather solid skating skills but he was the liability technically. (as much as I absolutely *adore* him. Love you Pierre!!!)

Some minor updates to the GP assignments today:

Ice Dance (http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=1932)
Rubleva/Shefer (RUS) are replacing the Zaretskis at NHK Trophy.

Rubleva/Shefer now have two GP assignments.

The Zaretskis have not been replaced yet at Skate America.

Pairs (http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=1931)
McLaughlin/Brubaker (USA) have been officially struck (removed) from their assignments to Skate Canada and Skate America. No replacements as of now. Their replacement at Skate America will be another USA pair.

Zaretsky/Zaretsky replacement: Ekaterina Rubleva/Ivan Shefer have been newly added to NHK Trophy in the GP Dance chart on the ISU site (TEB was their original assignment).

ETA: beaten by one minute, drat! ;)

I hope they wait until after Indy, and use that to decide which pair gets the slot.

There's actually 2 TBA United States pairs spots for Skate America up for grabs.

Would be nice for Katz/Lynch to get it- hope this year they can finally have a good result at Indy as its typically not been a great event for them...they always seem to finish 1 spot too low there to get a Skate America slot. There are so many teams that could get those spots- Inoue/Baldwin :wall: , Zhang/Toth, Simpson/Miller, Castelli/Shnapir, Dobbs/Jacobsen, Aaron/Cohen, Vise/Baldwin, K/L, Yankowskas/Coughlin...so Indy will be quite something this year! :watch:

Well, the Japan Times still lists Inoue & Baldwin on the NHK roster (as of 6/29/10)

So perhaps they are not retiring.

Great!!! It just wouldn't be a Nationals without John Jr. Considering that it's 'growth spurt season' for the 17/18 yr-old women, I would not be surprised if Rena & John can be back at Worlds soon. I can easily see a 2011 Worlds team consisting of Inoue/Baldwin, Jr. and Evora/Ladwig, not necessarily in that order. Both ladies experienced their growth spurts a long-long time ago.

I can't see a World team like that happening, but I guess you never know. I imagine Rena and John are continuing just because Worlds are in Japan. I know a lot of people just want them to go away (really, I can't take him), but there is something pretty admirable about their longevity, I think. I could see them getting a SA slot, if they were interested and showed up in Indy.

Inoue and Baldwin were only fractions away from going to the Olympics again.
