    With J. Helgesson now off the list, the 5 considered the next time they need a replacement should be (11) Nagasu, (15) Biryukova, (38) Flatt, (41) Osmond, and (44) Glebova

    If for some reason Mirai has withdrawn herself from consideration, then (46) McCorkell would be next.

    There is definitely something wrong this year... I don't ever remember this much drama surrounding grand prix selections for the ladies.

    I lost count - are there any ladies spots still unassigned? The host spot for TEB for instance? Or is that the one Joshi got?

    Helgesson got the host spot for TEB. All Ladies' spots are assigned now.

    Now that I think about it, was Biryukova also passed up for Joshi at TEB?

    There are already three Russian Ladies at TEB. Biryukova could only replace one of those.

    There are already 3 Russians at TEB, they couldn't invite Biryukova anyway

    Message from the French Fed to Candice Didier: We know you are still skating and all, but we don't need you anymore. I would have changed my mind had you trained with my ex-wife. 10 years ago, you were the only French lady capable of landing triples, so we sent you to senior competitions when you were not ready. Thanks for showing up at the Masters this week though. Maybe a Holliday on Ice recruiter will be there.

    Well, as a disgruntled Nagasu fan, I am bracing for the fact that Biryukova will probably get Skate Canada if TukTuk withdraws. Russian/Russian swap makes sense, and Nagasu's assignment in China is probably too close to the Canada dates anyway.

    Didn't Mirai do SC/COC back to back last season, or am I misremembering?

    It probably will be Biryukova though.

    Yes, Mirai did CoC last year, one week after doing SC.

    As there are only two Canadian women, could SC give the spot to Osmond?

    If that's all that GPs were "supposed" to do, then the host country option wouldn't have been part of the process all along.

    The TEB spot in ice dance for Zahorski/Miart will be up for grab too. France only has 2 senior dance teams at this point.

    Yea its kind of a bummer for Najarro, Charbonneau, Desanctis, et al, but it seems that Skate Canada has decided not to use their 3rd spot for SC, else they'd have done it by now. I guess those 3 didn't impress enough at summer/fall competitions or failed to reach whatever score was needed. In fact, of the four senior B comps they are sending skaters to, only Osmond and Lacoste were assigned to one each. And JGP spots only to Seguin, Chartrand, and Daleman- 2 each. It'll be interesting to see who can grab the 3rd spot for 4CC...and if the bronze medalist (if its not one of the 3 JGP ladies) from Nationals will be sent out beforehand in an attempt to meet the minimum score? Interested to see how this new "put up or shut up" policy by Skate Canada plays out.

    Getting myself on a tangent here-so far the highest TES from the JGP for these 3- Daleman and Chartrand have one more event each- all 3 have scored high enough to do junior worlds and 4CC, and so far only Chartrand has scored high enough in the FS to make the World team, but not the SP yet...

    Daleman SP- 26.69, FS- 47.32
    Seguin SP- 26.57, FS- 41.78
    Chartrand SP- 24.25, FS- 49.51

    ISU European and ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships 2013 LADIES SP 20,00 FS 36,00
    ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships 2013 LADIES SP 20,00 FS 35,00
    ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2013 - LADIES SP 28,00 FS 48,00

    I'm a bit perplexed as to how SC decides which 2 to send to Jr. Worlds, and will the 3rd go to 4CC? I guess they try send the highest placing 2 to Junior Worlds in an attempt to qualify 2 spots again next year, and the other one goes to 4CC? That's of course assuming that Osmond gets the Worlds spot and doesn't have to bother with Junior Worlds duty- I tend to forget there's only one spot there and that Lacoste *is* the reigning champion- but having 2 chances and finishing 16th both times is a definite impetus to give the one who just beat Sotnikova some nice scores at Nationals assuming she skates well there....

    I really enjoyed Charbonneau's freeskate at Skate Detroit. Skate Canada would have been a nice opportunity for her.

    FFSG never fails to :mad:.

    Congrats on supporting your skaters! :rolleyes:

    I mean French Masters didn't even happen yet but they've already turned Didier down. :/

    This is from back at post 326 (Kwanfan1818), but I don't think anything has changed (host can select any one from this list, in no particular order):

    Tobias/Stagniunas (18-USA)
    Chock/Bates (20-CHN)
    Alessandrini/Vaturi (22-USA)
    Slobina/Sitnikov (23-CAN)
    Ralph/Hill (25-CAN, also 21 WS)


    Zahorski/Miart were "host" picks however, so I don't know if that changes anything. As in, the French Fed can pick anyone, regardless of where they are on the list.

    If the French fed gives up the spot, it will go to somebody on the substitute list.

    France has no other Senior ID teams.

    Reposting from earlier in the thread:

    The current Ladies replacement field is:
    (11) Nagasu, (15) Biryukova, (38) Flatt, (41) Osmond, and (44) Glebova

    If Nagasu only wants one GP, then (46) McCorkell is next.

    Does Glebova have a priority of a GP spot over Nagasu, Biryukova, Flatt, Osmond's second spot?

    There is no priority. It's at the organiser's discretion to pick one out of the five.

    The weakest and cheapest to transport of the next five in line.

    I agree. Even with the mistakes she kept going and did pretty well. In terms of picking a skater people actually want to see, I'd bet money on Mirai.

    I hope she gets TEB!

    Hmmm, "cheapest to transport"...
    Glebova trains in Hackensack, New Jersey, Nagasu in L.A., Flatt near San Francisco, Osmond in Edmonton, AB, and Biryukova in Moscow.

    who cares, not me and not the u.s. public, since most people in figure skating wants to blame michelle for the WOES. when the certain people can't see and understand they are the problem. for lack of u.s. people watching.

    why--they haven't done what the public wanted. and never cared what they thought, done said. only what they wanted and ignored the u.s. public so now we ignore them and could careless who they want.push, we won't buy or care what goes on.
    you ignored us, we ignore us.

    Probably LA or SF to China and NYC or Moscow to Paris. But Nagasu is already at CoC and there are already three Russian ladies at TEB.

    Does Flatt's even want a second that would break up her studies even more?

    ETA: schedule-wise, TEB would give Osmond more time to recover. Osmond would have to fly Detroit to China, or possibly from Toronto non-stop, since SC is the week before.

    Also Ando is already scratched off the GP grid; the Japanese Fed gave the ISU fast notice.

    That's it for Ando's one-time shot as a "come-back" skater for two automatic GP's. She'll either have to compete at 4C's and/or Worlds to get two spots -- I assume she'll get two if she's on the top 24 PB list, because the Japanese Fed can force it by keeping a TBA at NHK -- or she can get appointed to NHK if she sits the season out.

    Lacoste already got COC so I doubt CHN federation would chose Osmond. Biryukova is the easiest and weakest to transport from there, so she gets my pick.


    As for TEB the likely choice is Glebova, but if french federation wants to sell a few more tickets Nagasu could finally get her 2nd event.
