I agree. Armin could potentially beat both Amodio and Joubert at TEB and clearly the French fed would not want that, considering their two best male skaters currently still have a shot at making the GPF.

Why doesn't the ISU put themselves in charge of picking replacement entries? At least that would prevent the host nations from scrapping the bottom of the barrel to select a skater that isn't a threat to its own skaters instead of picking the best skater available.

Good point, I don't know.

Do you think the ISU would be more "fair" with their selections than the host nations?

So if the French fed. follows its usual pattern of picking OES, that means Berntsson and Bacchini! ;)

From the ISU GP Announcement:

7.6 Replacements
It is mandatory that a Organizing Member replaces any skater/couple who withdraws from the event with an alternate up to fourteen (14) days prior to the draw for that event. At the seven day mark, consideration will be given by the ISU Grand Prix Coordination Group to leaving a position vacant because of visa requirements or unduly high travel costs that would be incurred by the Organizing Member.
Brezina's name was removed on November 12 from the TEB men's roster at: http://www.isuresults.com/events/cat00007099.htm (Voronov is still listed)
So there should be an alternate for Brezina (he withdrew 14 days before the draw) but not necessarily one for Voronov?

once more iīm begging for one spot for zhiganzhina/gaszi, please, itīs even europe, give them a chance. they can do a lot better than many couples we have seen this season at the grand prixs.

for the men, first of all, armin! he reached the podium, that should be honored with a second assignment.


whatīs with voronov?
has he really injured himself seriously with that fall? does anybody knw?

Forgive my ignorance, but what does OES stand for? I'm guessing E is for European and S is for skater, but I'm not sure what the O represents.

Honestly, I'm hoping I still care about a few of the people skating at TEB (if you know what I mean)...it would be beyond boring to spend the entire time watching a couple of top people and a whole bunch of OES. Plus, the disparity between the top and bottom scorers will be ridiculous. :/

The whole 2010 GP season has been like that.

I was sure that SC would be a snoozefest, but I found it very entertaining in person. And it was thrilling to see new people do so well, especially those with a maple leaf tattooed on their chest/bum/whatever.

I felt the same about SA and it was just wonderful! I really enjoyed seeing all the different levels of skaters who were there, especially some of the OES that we're rarely exposed to here in the US.
