Why does it seem that CoC and TEB had identical entry fields?

Great :(
more headcases

I think at this stage of the game its pretty clear that the hosts would pick skaters that they can get in quickly based on both travel tine, travel expenses and visa requirements.

and yes I would guess that McCorkell gets TEB but who knows what the French Fed decides.

Kostner, Silété, and now Ando, 3 skaters out of the same GP events(COC and TEB).
There are too many skaters matching in the same events.
ISU should organize skaters more carefully so something like this won't happen.

I'm quoting my own post on another thread.
ISU assigned 5 ladies to the same events(COC and TEB) and we have 4 of them out now...

BTW why Sonia Lafuente has no GP assignement? I don't remember what she did last year, but it's probably better than Glebova and McCorkell.

I doubt Flatt would accept TEB if offered. She's got SA and Ice Challenge. I think it would be too much to juggle w/ Stanford?

I'm shocked and appalled that the FF just keeps overlooking Mirai! If I put on lipstick and a pair of skates and stood next to Mirai, they probably would even take me over Mirai!

I soo hope Kaetlyn Osmond will get TEB :)

Skate Canada invited Popova-Massot, when there were pairs with better rankings available..so I am expecting a favour in return at some point.

WHEN did I miss the announcement that singles events would include only 10 skaters each? Wasn't it 12 last year?

Lafuente is ranked #50 on last season's ISU SB total scores list (Glebova #44, McCorkell #46):

I am so furious and sad about how Mirai is passed over again and again. :( :mad:

She is such a great skater and definitely one that would make me more anxious to go to a competition.

I hate hate hate this system.

Sylvia...is there an ISU link to the updated rosters for the SGP events? With all the injuries, hard to keep track ;-)

The most up-to-date GP rosters are the 4 "All 6 Events" PDF documents by discipline: http://www.isu.org/vsite/vnavsite/page/directory/0,10853,4844-136494-137802-nav-list,00.html

Something is really wrong when a so so skater like Biryukova gets two GP events and someone like Mirai only gets one. Yes Mirai has struggled but she still usually finishes much higher then Biryukova does. All you have to do is look at medals won internationally.

Do we know for sure that Nagasu didn't ask for only one event?

She has been quoted recently saying she hopes to get a second event (looking for quote...)
