Thanks. I didn't see it posted, so I posted it. My apologies.

No need to apologize, IMO -- it's confusing when there's a skater- or team-specific thread in the Trash Can and there is "real news" that belongs in GSD like Virtue/Moir's official withdrawal from Canadians.

Maybe this thread can be merged with the other V/M thread in GSD and the thread title revised to reflect their withdrawal from Canadians and TBD for 4CC/Worlds? http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=76446&page=6

I assumed, since some people aren't V/M fans (like me), that it'd be better to give it its own thread.

Thanks -- and I hope that their recovery continues. I don't know that it necessarily puts them out of Worlds, but that is sounding less likely.

Don't they need to qualify through Canadians first; or does winning World gold give them direct entry / a medical bye?

Skate Canada has made it very clear that it was not necessary for Tessa & Scott to compete at Nationals to be named to the CDN team for Worlds.

I usually have a problem with petitioning to teams but I think its clear that Tessa and Scott have earned their spots. Even though they have been out of competition, they are the reigning Olympic and World Champions, which will put them in a much better light with judges than a rising Canadian team. I hate to bring this up but I also think of it like Michelle Kwan circa 2006 -- she was one of the reasons they had those spots in the first place.

I love Kaitlin Weaver and Andrew Poje's style. Hope they win at Canadians. They are so elegant. He's really tall, dark and handsome.

I am sad they are out because I was looking forward to seeing them again, but at this point I think the most important thing is that Tessa heals completely. IMHO they have nothing left to prove and it would be a shame if she sustained a permanent injury by getting back on the ice too early.

Get well soon Tessa!

Unfortunately there's no GOE for tall, dark and handsome :)

"[Meryl and Charlie] have had a very good first half of the season, it's lucky for us to have them here to push us," Moir said. "When Igor and Marina said they didn't want us to go to nationals, we said we wanted to compete. We thought it would be hard to go to Four Continents without having competed at all [this season] but they told us we compete [with Meryl and Charlie] every day."
