Sorry he has a lower "Seasons ranking" and shouldn't we be sending the best skaters of the season away.
Just because someone has previously been skating well doesn't mean they are now, a lot can change in a year!

Your right, we should be sending the best skaters but its done on ranking and The Seasons Ranking is based on one competition only. The Pool ranking is based on multi competitions and the all important TES score. Brendon's scores at 4CC and Worlds were not a year ago, they were this year.

ISA have chosen to season rank based on Wintersun this year but it's only one comp and it only improved current rankings in the pool and added newly qualified people to the pool.

Any Skater can have have a bad skate we all know that. ;)

Season runs from July to July. this years 4CC and worlds were last years season.
Wintersun was in this years season but right at the start where some of these athletes are taking a well earn break. Therefore the results at winternsun really do not give any representation of proficiency and are not a good indicator of ranking for the International skater.

You have valid points, but my one question is then why has this decision been made to send the selected men?

I think if you are considering other previous events both David, Brendan and Jordan deserve spots at the JGP events.
Since all three have performed well over the past year at some point, even with all of there inconsistent performances. I believe from looking at there PPCs all three of them would be evenly matched in TES if they skated clean.

My only concern is Cameron Hemmert considering he hasn't competed in nearly a whole year.

Wow O'Brien and Merriman are competing five times :eek:
But the Crystal Skate and NRW Trophy have overlapping dates - can they really do both events?


Good Luck to Greg and Danny!!:cheer2:
They are in the same boat as everyone in needing the Magic TES to get them to Worlds next year, I guess they have to take every opportunity they can to get that.
They have put so much in to their training by living in the US the past 12 months, guess they are just going to run with it! Good on on them and Good luck to them!!

Bumping up this thread to post an article about Brooklee Han who is competing at Four Continents this week: http://weston.dailyvoice.com/sports/reddings-brooklee-han-aims-skate-sochi-olympics

Han, 17, heads into an important two-month stretch in her quest to represent Australia, which is the homeland of her father. She will compete in the Four Continents Championships in Osaka, Japan, beginning Feb. 6. After that is the World Junior Championships, beginning Feb. 25 in Milan, Italy.

Depending on how Han fares in those two events, she could get an invitation to compete in the Senior World Championships in London, Ontario, beginning March 10.

“Getting to the Senior Worlds is the main objective,’’ Han said. “I definitely feel like I have a good chance to get there. If I go out and skate like I have in practice, I think the scores are attainable.”

Brooklee Han actually looks pretty good and enjoyable. Some of the skaters for AUS the last two years have made me wonder what their Russian coaches were thinking.
