So Ivana got the COR spot instead of Cheltzie, that surprises me, but I do like her skating. Hoping Cheltzie will compete on the JGP or in senior B events.

I'm wondering if Cheltzie is indeed competing.. for all the buz and support , we haven't heard anything from her. JGP is out of the question since all events have been assigned. and the other australian senior skaters are already travelling Europe participating in Senior Bs.

Argh, I was so hoping to see Amanda Dobbs make a splash on the GP circuit! Oh, well. Hopefully, she'll do well in China.

She withdrew from her state champs last week. They are the entry qualifier for Aus nats. Hopefully she'll get a bye. http://www.nswisa.com/results/2010/nsw/CAT192RS.HTM

Not happy.

Reitmayerova has an absolutely awful last season, whilst Cheltzie really made a mark.

Ugh! This. I wish Cheltzie got a GP, she deserves one!

Let's :mitchell: for her!

Isn't she the reigning national champion?? they would be DUMB to not give her a bye..

And I'm happy for Reitmayerova , I like her a lot and I hope she reivindicates herself from the crapy last season, plus the GP rules are clear that after the guaranteed spots the federations are free to invite whoever they like from the alternate lists so it's not like she's stealing a spot from Cheltzie.

Let's keep in mind that Reitmayerova does represent a former Soviet Republic...

Uh?? :huh:Slovakia was never a soviet republic.. It was part of the former eastern/communist bloc but they are not the same thing..

But I do get what you're saying, Reitmayerova is obviously a much better option than Lee for Cup of Russia organizers.

:o I thought she skated for Estonia. :duh:

But I'm glad you understood the point I was trying to make. It's more logical for the organizers to chooses a European skater, although it would have been nice if Lee was selected.

Reitmayerova is a resonable choice.

Near and cheap to invite
Never pose a threat to the Russians
The SVK judges will be Russia's ally (throughout the season)

Yes, but from the OC side: flight tickets from Bratislava and from Sydney/Melbourne or whichever Australian city she lives in are a big difference.

So they invite skaters who are not very good to make their own look better?
Is that the way it's supposed to work?

LOL, that's the way it always has been for all 6 events, not only COR. They like to make sure their Nš3 skater/team never finishes dead last.

While the Grand Prix has become very prestigious and important and sure it has helped tons of top and lesser skaters to make a mark during the early season, let's keep in mind that it was created first by the host federations as a way to make their own amateur competitions the more rentable and marketable as possible, and never as a development program for skaters from other countries.
