I hate when people are criticising skaters for their decisions even without knowing what was the reason behind that decision. (E.g. people here were criticising Asada for staying in Japan and not being willing to train abroad and only later we learned that her mother was seriously ill!

Thanks!!!!!!! I totally agree with you.

Do you know Kostner personally? How can you judge someone if you don't really know her?

Michelle qualified for the GP final one year although she competed in only one GP event. She, however, elected not to compete. Mirai, think more positively!!!! lol

I don't think that is possible any more...?

It's very unlikely but as possible now as it was back then.

It's actually not possible. The ISU did not want people to be able to qualify for the final after only competing in one event, so they changed how many points you earn for placing at events for the next season (after Michelle qualified having competed in only one event). At that time, you got 12 points for winning an event. Now, you get 15, and the scale of points is higher all the way down. It is now mathematically impossible to make the final having competed in only one event.

Ah yes of course. I forgot about the point changes, thanks for pointing that out.

C'mon, guys, replace Kexin Zhang before it's too late and you only have nine ladies in each of those events...

Don't have access to Kiss and Cry, so please excuse if this has already been discussed there.
Why does Gracie G have a BYE through UGL Regionals? I thought if your international was within 7 days of your Regional, you get a BYE. UGL ends Oct 16 and Skate Canada starts on Oct 26. Have the rules changed recently, or have I missed something? Plus she's not even flying overseas, so I am confused.

Recently, skaters with 2 GP events have had byes to nationals. I don't know of the specific rule that specifies this, but it's been the case for the last few years, at least.

^^^ I believe Rule 2473 in the USFS rulebook applies in this situation.

Thanks, confused because a poster over at Goldenskate Forums that skates at Gracies' rink, and always seems to have an "in" on things, was posting a few days back that Gracie indeed was going to have to skate at her regional, unlike Mirai who does not.

Since a skater can't get to the gp final by winning only one gp event, it strikes me as strange that they don't let all skaters participate in two events. It hardly seems fair to let a skater compete in only one event, knowing full well they won't have a chance to get to the final now. What other sport has this kind of competition where you are already eliminated before you start?:rolleyes:

Places are limited because the resources are limited. If you want two spots, you have to earn them.
