    How will Yasmin and Samantha get their points remains to be interesting.
    The only ISU junior competitions that are held before the JW are Obersdorf, Ljubljana, Vienna, however all competitors deadlines were closed before US nationals.
    (I also placed this questions in the other thread however this one is more appropriate)

    USFS only named skaters who already have attained the TES minimums.

    You are correct.
    I had to go back and check. Yasmin earned her points in JGP Volvo Cup 2011.
    Thank you for correcting me.

    It would have been nice if you had put "US" in your thread title. There *are* people on this board from places other than the US.

    I am so glad that Wagner is not going to 4CCs.

    I like that they are sending Gold to 4CC and leaving Wagner at home. Gold can use the experience and another chance to test herself under pressure whereas Ashley doesn't need it and can use the time better by making sure she is healthy and well trained.

    I can't believe they gave a spot to Adam Rippon and not Jeremy Abbott for 4CC's...That just does not seem logical from a best-results-possible-at-4CC-type of approach.:scream:

    Why decline? Unless he's injured again? He needs the points.I'd like to know if they bypassed him or he declined. I recall they bypassed Alissa one year.

    I agree. I originally thought that this thread would be about world teams from different countries and was surprised to see that it was only about US skaters..

    They bypassed Alissa when she was national champion. Quite a bit different, I think.

    They bypassed Alissa last year when she was silver medalist, not champion...but she still had the Worlds assignment.

    I seriously doubt they deliberately bypassed Jeremy, they wouldn't do that. He almost certainly declined. It's not crazy that he might decide not to go to 4CCs. Maybe he didn't feel up to gearing up for a competition overseas with little time to spare, maybe he felt he needed some time to rest and regroup for next year.

    Can an admin please rename this thread before I throw my laptop out of the window in a fit of rage?

    THERE ARE OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD OUTSIDE OF THE US, THANKS.

    I hope someone withdraws from 4CC so Mirai can go, but we know that won't happen. Agnes probably has nothing better to do.

    Instead of complaining, people could post who is going from other countries. I'd love to have all the names in one place.

    Why does Canada not yet know who they send as their third dance team and third men entry? Given the depth in Canada, I'm positive they had someone place third at Nationals, so can anyone elighten me what's up with that? :)

    Gao's school schedule could interfere with her going.

    They decided not to assign their bronze medalists to Worlds, at least right off the bat. They assigned gold and silver (where there were two spots) immediately. Chan isn't going to 4C's, but bronze medalist Andrei Rogozine and Elladj Balde are going to 4C's, so SC may be waiting for that result. (Rogozine has the Worlds TES minimums, and Balde still needs the Worlds TES FS minimum.)

    The Ice Dance podium is going to 4C's, but I assume Skate Canada is waiting to see if there's any chance that Weaver/Poje will be ready for London. They took a different approach than USFS, which assigned Denney/Coughlin a provisional injury bye assignment (subject to monitoring.) If not, I assume they'll send bronze medalists Orford/Williams, since there's no direct comparison between them and Paul/Islam (the only other Senior team with World minimums) at 4C's.

    Ralph and Hill don't have the world minimums? I know it's unlikely they'd be sent due to their placement, but I'm just surprised if they don't have the minimum scores.

    I concluded the same... (the other option being Jeremy being dropped by USFSA)

    Wang should have gotten the nod to go to Junior Worlds over Yasmin. Wang had a good year on the JGP while Siraj didn't even compete. Plus Wang has way more potential especially if she can start skating clean in her SP. As usual the USFS uses the standings at Nationals to pick their team and leaves off more talented skaters. :mad:

    Maybe they were questioning their judgement in sending Vanessa Lam on the basis of her strong JGP season last year when she placed behind Wang at Nationals then kind of bombed at JW and wound up 13th. Angela's scores on the JGP were quite a bit higher than Vanessa's last season, though the placements were pretty similar (both 1st and 3rd at their events, then 4th to Vanessa's 5th at the JGPF) and Angela scored higher at Nationals compared to Vanessa last season. I think it's more the situation that if they sent Wang, they'd have to send Miller too as she finished 2nd at the JGPF and also skated well at Nationals, finishing just a couple points behind Angela overall, and where Hicks medaled, she earned and after-Nationals assignment and Cesario skated so well and beat both Wang and Miller at Nationals and deserves an assignment too (and really needs it to get GP assignments next season), but there wasn't room on 4CC to send Cesario and Hicks there without chalking Gao, who really does deserve 4CC after her GP season and skating so well at Nationals too, so it was probably just easier to go with Siraj than having to pick between Wang and Miller. Also, Samantha can't compete on the JGP or go to JW next season, while both Angela and Hannah can, so missing out on JW this year is not a huge deal, they can definitely get JGP assignments next season and may even be able to get senior GP assignments based on their SBs and points accumulated on the JGP

    I have a feeling like we are back in 2012. Ashley is going to end up cleaning the ice like Alissa did last year and Gold will be the top finisher of the two.
