I think it will be good for abbot to not go to gpf so he can fix his boot problems.

I think it will be good for abbot to not go to gpf so he can fix his boot problems.

He seemed to think so too when they interviewed him last week. Although I guess since he's first alternate there's a good chance that he could be called in at the last minute, which would not be good. I'll missing seeing him there, but it probably is best for him to work out his boot probems and it is going to be a good group of men. The Japanese guys will be fighting it out and I'm very happy to see Florent doing so well under pressure. He's playing with the big boys now! Plus, Chan being there will give him a chance to improve and prove himself and a chance for fans to go at it. :lol:

Excited for Rachael Flatt to qualify after two years as an alternate; bummed that Kiira Korpi is the only gold medalist who doesn't get to take part! Also bummed that the Shibs don't get to go to the final, and that Takahashi/Tran are alternates (less bummed because they are going to the JGPF anyway).

I'd say the US team picked up a few bronzes, wouldn't you? I guess our only golds were Alissa at SC and D/W's two.

I realize there have been a number of injuries and withdrawals but there are some interesting facts about the finalists vis-a-vis last years medalists:

1. 3 Japanese ladies qualified but Mao is not one of them
2. A Frenchman is in but it is not Joubert
3. 2 Canadian dance teams qualified but neither is Virtue & Moir
4. 2 Russian pairs qualified but neither one is Kavaguti & Smirnov

I've heard that Sui/Han is going to JGPF (for reasons way beyond me, they've already won everything on the junior circuit), and I'm pretty sure that they wouldn't do both at the same time. So if that happens, T/T are in. :)

no they are not. Sui / Han have withdrawn from the JGPF and not the SGPF

Oh, good! I was about to say, they shouldn't even have done the JGP circuit this year...

Yeah, that was kind of expensive and pointless. Glad the rumors were false.

The injuries and quaratines are allowing many skaters to compete that would not have had the opportunity otherwise. Many won't be there next year, especially in pairs.

for instance...I/M would not have qualified for the GPF if K/S competed in Canada. Even if you doubled K/S score from the COR they would be in third, and that score is without a lift they never got credit for.

I can't wait for worlds when they all get to compete together.
