    what we also need to know: costume details.
    because 30 year old skaters can wear whatever the f they want.

    To make matters more interesting, she was in Guatemala a few weeks ago (early January) performing in the Nutcracker on Ice with Russia on Ice, yet another ballet on ice company. I'm sure she was doing it to help pay for some of her training costs...Serious globe trotting!

    Thanks for posting, ioana. Interesting that they're traveling with a portable ice rink. I had no idea there was such a thing. I wish the article had said which role Gizmo has. I think she'd be a voidy OAS Sugar Plum Fairy.

    Cool. Don't you just love 4CC? You got to see so many other skaters from different countries regardless of talent and hard work. ^^

    You're right.

    But starting this year you won't unless you'll actually be there. :(

    All the interesting, random obscure skaters will be chucked after the preliminary round which won't be broadcasted anywhere probably. :mad:

    That may only happen with 7-8 ladies at most, still plenty of room for OAS. 4CC rosters for Men, Pairs and Dance never go higher than the new maxium stablided by ISU for the SP/SD so no need for a quali there.


    ETA: I just checked the 4CC entries site. Only 31 ladies, so hopefully there wont be a QR for them either.

    You're right about the rest but sadly, there will be a preliminary round for Ladies.

    Only 28 make it to the SP.

    Of course, holding an extra event to eliminate 3 skaters is probably going to cost more than the money saved on eliminating them but whatever... :rolleyes:

    As for Gimatzetdinova, I would imagine that she's only taking part in the Asian Games because they're quite close and other than that she's pretty much retired?

    Otherwise, I'd imagine she'd be going to Taipei.

    Definitely more than probably. This rule makes absolutely no sense whatsoever...

    I know, but there's also a rule that says when there's up to 2 more skaters than the maxifum for the SP, the QR can be cancelled. Sure, now we have 3 extra skaters instead of just 2:lol: So I guess this will be a real test for ISU organizers common sense:D Im not being optimisc about it though:shuffle:

    Oh thanks, I didn't know about that. At least some flexibility. :)

    Well for now, Ladies is the only discipline which has "D" listed next to skaters' names. So as it stands, the preliminary round is being planned.

    Because it's THREE more skaters and not TWO. Big difference! :p
