From this it seems Andrea Poapst/Christopher Knierim S7 split
I wish Belt/Johnson would have been added for their great score at YOG.

Yes, Poapst/Knierim have split even though they currently are still listed in the 2011-12 Team C envelope on the USFS site.

Caitlin Belt/Michael Johnson hopefully can and will be added to the ISP if they compete well this summer.

ETA: I'm glad to see Shotaro Omori was included in the ISP - he didn't qualify for Nationals but the Pacific Coast Sectional Junior Men's field was very deep/competitive this season.

ETA #2: I've extracted the JGP age-eligible skaters/teams if anyone would like to discussion them here: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?p=3556714#post3556714

I see that Joelle Forte isn't listed even though Siraj, who finished below her at nationals (while injured), is. I wonder if Forte has retired or if it's merely that Siraj was included since she's JGP-eligible and has good past results.

Hope she is still competing. Her lp was one of my faves. She had nice transitions in and out of her jumps. Her footwork was very fluid on one foot. Her true lutz. Check out her SA fs! Also her Rachmaninov lp!

He had a back injury prior to the sectionals, and he had to fight through the pains at the Coast. He is pain free now and doing great. I'm glad to see his name on the list as well. I hope he'll make a great come back this year!

On that note, what about Emmanuel Savary? He was 12th in Junior at Nationals behind David Wang. I really hope he does continue to skate. That kid is an immense talent. I wonder if he would have been on the list if other skaters who didn't compete this past season and previous seasons decided not to compete again.

I don't believe there is a set limit on the number of skaters that can be in the ISP. I imagine the JGP-eligible skaters were selected separately from the Senior skaters. Emmanuel didn't have a great Nats and IIRC didn't place high in his JGP this season. I guess in the opinion of USFS, there were other Junior skaters more deserving of int'l assignments this fall.

I believe skaters can still be added to the pool if they do well in summer comps, like Gracie Gold was added last year (and eventually did get a JGP), so if Emmanuel performs well this summer, he could still potentially get on the list and get an assignment.

OK I see. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

He could still be added later, it probably depends on if skaters like Farris and Brown return to the JGP or decide to move to seniors, and then how skaters like Choate, Chen, and Yostanto do at their first events (I would bet the USFS expects them to do well and gain 2nd assignments). Usually only the top 8 or so in junior are listed on the ISP initially. If Farris and Brown both move up to seniors (which I assume they will...anyone hear anything?) and skaters who get initial assignments finish like 5th or lower, someone like Emmanuel could be added and sent to a JGP, provided he skates well over the summer.

According to the USFS website:


*The Team USA Team Envelope will be updated for 2012-13 during the week of May 7*

So, not much longer to wait. They have the header there, just the wrong info, lol.

Here's my updated projected team envelopes based on the published criteria (with the split teams removed): http://unseenskaters.wordpress.com/2012/02/13/projected-2012-13-u-s-team-envelopes-so-far/

It remains to be seen whether or not one or more of these 3 criteria will be applied:

Consideration will be given to place a 2010 Olympic medalist [Lysacek] into Team A or Team B at the discretion of the ICMS. These athletes must have retained their eligible status and must be committed to competing in the current and/or following competitive season.

Consideration to place the athletes in Team C – Tier 1 will be given for senior level skaters placing lower at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships where the event was very strong or the results were very close.

Consideration to place the athletes in Team C – Tier 2 will be given for junior level skaters placing lower at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships where the event was very strong or the results were very close.
