Cynthia Phaneuf is out of consideration for GP due to a back injury:
http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=84237

She was not assigned a spot in the general selection, but there was a TBD for Ladies at Skate Canada. She's far enough down the SB list that an alternates spot wasn't very likely.

I wonder who will get that spot now. Maybe a skate off at a senior B between Desanctis and Najarro.

My thoughts exactly ... it's definitely going to be either of these 2.

Contesti's spots have been assigned to:

Sergei Voronov (COC)
Jinlin Guan (TEB)

All of the Top 24 SB competing Senior, with the exception of Plushenko (none) were assigned two in the initial assignments.

Before selection, the Top 6 -- Ge and Guan were tied at 31 -- with zero or one were:

25-Voronov
28-Hendrickx (already assigned to TEB)
29-Rogozine (assigned to NHK the week after TEB)
30-Dmitriev (injured?, already assigned to CoC)
31-Ge
31 Guan

I don't see any tie-breaker rules for SB, and it's possible that Ge and Guan were added together and the order on the SB list was alphabetical, or Ge was never submitted for GP (which doesn't make sense).

The wording on the GP announcement suggests that the grouping is static and that all of the men (if possible) in the Top 5 (or 6 with tie) would be assigned before someone else moved up to the Top 5 list. If not, Bush would be slotted into the remaining skaters in the group if Ge is in it, or Bush and Menshov if Ge is not in it.

Thanks for the update, kwanfan1818. So both Voronov and Guan have received second GP assignments.


it could also potentially be samson [for the Skate Canada ladies TBA host spot] if she returns and monitors well.

For whatever reason, the ISU published Ladies and Pairs sheets dated July 13, but I don't see any changes from the originals posted on May 21.

Would have rather seen Ge at TEB...

Misha doesn't have a fed pulling for him I suppose. Dimitrev's COC spot can still go to him though. Chinese fed is friendly with Misha's parents, or at least some coaches do.

As posted in the Carlina Kostner thread (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?p=3642710#post3642710)


Does anyone know why Carolina's name is crossed out in Grand Prix's lists?

Do we have a sense of whose at the top of the alternate/replacement/substitute list, that could fill Carolina's spots?

From Sylvia's post #335 in this thread (taking out Kexin Zhang who has 2 now)

LADIES
1 GP assignment received (listed in order of ISU SB score ranking):
8 Alissa Czisny USA (NHK; #4 in World Standings; currently recovering from surgery on 6/6)
11 Mirai Nagasu USA (Cup of China; #13 in WS)
14 Kiira Korpi FIN (Rostelecom Cup; #5 in WS)
15 Sofia Biryukova RUS (NHK)
17 Polina Korobeynikova RUS (TEB)
19 Polina Shelepen RUS (NHK; #23 in WS)
...

My (hopeful) guesses: I would guess that Nagasu will get TEB.

as for China: With Korpi already at Rostelecom, she may be out of luck in terms of the timing. Biryukova or one of the other Russian ladies may get it instead.

I think Korpi might well get TEB since the French Fed tends to use European skaters (cheaper flights) for their subs.

I really hope either Korobeynikova or Biryukova get Cup of China.

That is a very very strong substitute list. They all deserve 2 GP. Those "subs" could come in and win a GP, so we will have to pay attention to the host federations' strategies.
