PT's new costume of their FS(dream of love).I think light color is more suitable for their FS.

I really like her dress.
Wish the guy was in black pants, though. It's kind of a shock to the eyes, all that red, without any relief.

Shawn Sawyer got the NHK spot.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! :biggrinbo :respec: :cheer2: :cheer: I wanted Shawn to get 2 GPs, so I'm very happy to hear this news!


thanks to JSF/NHK organizers for picking him off of the top of the 1-GP Alternates List!


Yes, a very big thank you to JSF for selecting the best candidate to replace Borodulin at NHK. I will miss Artem's skating, but at least we'll get to see more of Shawn's. :swoon:

While I am sad for Borodulin, Shawn will be fun to watch! Glad he is the one who got Japan.

I just read on Michael Brezina's facebook that he's "not coming to China"
I guess that means the GP :(

You'd think he'd be a little young for varicose veins...

Hope he gets better soon! Way too many injuries this season

Every year I feel like saying: Well, there are always a lot of withdrawals from the GP due to injury but THIS year it is especially bad.

Well, this year it is especially bad. :(

:wuzrobbed Better to get it treated early in the season and not have to deal with any further pain, however, and hopefully they were checking for any other circulartory problems while doing the surgery as well. Wish him luck on his recovery!

This may be far more serious because it may be as a result of a congenital issue and indicative of other arteriovenous malformation issues. I hope this is not the case.

Could he get a later GP like the Cup of Russia as an alternate? Or are the rules preventing skaters to change assignments?

Here is the latest Men's GP assignment list.

Men
* means that they are JGP eligible.

All men that were guaranteed one OR two GP assignments have received two GP assignments at this point.

Men on the Alternates List with 2 GP Assignments
(2) Florent Amodio FRA - 27 SB (NHK and FRA)
(2 1) Artem Borodulin RUS - 28 SB (NHK and RUS)
(2) Shawn Sawyer CAN- 30 SB (NHK and USA)
(2) Jialiang Wu CHN - 32 SB (NHK and CHN)
(2) Anton Kovalevski UKR - 41 SB (RUS and FRA)
(2) Jeremy Ten CAN - 48 SB (NHK and CAN)

Men with one GP assignment and probably not eligible for a second assignment
(1) Takahito Mura JPN (host pick)
(1) Chafik Besseghier FRA (host pick)
(1) Peitong Chen CHN (host pick)
(1) Konstantin Menshov RUS (host pick)


Possible Candidates for Brezina's Cup of China spot:

1. Can't be a Chinese man because they already have 3 entries.
2. Skaters assigned to GPs the previous week (CAN) or the following week (USA) would not be ideal.
3. Skaters without a potential conflict are in green.

Men looking for a second GP assignment (listed in order of SB rank)
(1) Jinlin Guan CHN - 36 SB (CHN)
(1) Stephen Carriere USA - 37 SB (USA)
(1) Grant Hochstein USA - 38 SB (CAN)
(1) Armin Mahbanoozadeh USA - SB 42 (USA)
(1) Kristoffer Berntsson SWE - SB 43 (CAN)
(1) Paolo Bacchini ITA - 45 SB (CAN)
(1) Daisuke Murakami JPN - 46 SB (USA)
(1) Viktor Pfeifer AUT - 49 SB (USA)
(1) Peter Liebers GER - 54 SB (FRA)
(1) Yasuharu Nanri JPN - 60 SB (CAN)
(1) Zoltan Kelemen ROU - 73 SB (FRA)

Men looking for an initial assignment
Chao Yang CHN - 40 SB
Joey Russell CAN - 59 SB
Austin Kanallakan USA - 61 SB
Javier Raya ESP - 65 SB
Ivan Tretiakov RUS - 66 SB
Alexander Nikolaev RUS - 67 SB
Gregor Urbas SLO - 68 SB (retired?)
Ming Xu CHN - 69 SB
Morgan Cipres FRA - 70 SB skating pairs for FRA with Vanessa James
*Jiaxing Liu CHN - 72 SB
Ronald Lam - CAN - 75 SB

***************************
If I had to pick, I'd pick one of Peter Liebers, Grant Hochstein, Armin Mahbanoozadeh, or Kristoffer Berntsson based on their strong performances at Nebelhorn/Finlandia.

The rules prevent a skater who withdrew from one GP event due to injury from getting a re-assignment.

If a seeded or “come-back” skater/couple withdraws from an assigned event, even for medical reasons, that skater/couple will not be assigned to another event.

Non-seeded skaters/couples will not be assigned to another event if, by medical reason, they withdraw from an assigned event.
(Brezina, because he finished 4th at 2010 Worlds, is a "seeded" skater).

Brezina can keep his assignment to TEB, but the rules do not permit a "replacement" assignment due to injury.
