    I'm so glad Alex will get to show his gorgeous free skate to an international audience. :)

    Feb. 5th Senior roster updates:

    Anita MADSEN DEN - Cancelled

    Men down to 21 entries:
    Alexander MAJOROV SWE - Cancelled
    2 entries for ARM no longer listed
    GBR 2nd men's entry TBD

    Both substitute pairs (Leng/LeDuc USA and Klatka/Chruscinski POL) are now listed as Accepted.

    Probably because all the Senior ladies in the top 13 at Nationals have already competed internationally at least once this season (the exception is Yasmin Siraj, whose first international of the season will be Junior Worlds), unlike Johnson and Mroz.

    ETA what I cross-posted in the U.S. Pairs thread in GSD: All the Team USA entries are not considered official until they are listed on USFS' International Assignments page, and Challenge Cup has not been added there yet.

    Interesting, probably that's official policy. Anyway I have had direct contact with the responsible Committee so I guess it just needs a formal board approval (?) and then will be official?

    All three pair teams plus Mroz and Johnson are now listed as competing at the Challenge Cup on the USFS international assignments page :)

    Now if only they would decide and announce the teams for Gardena!

    Competition is from 21 til 24 February 2013 per announcement in first post :). It also mentions in the announcement that this is the last chance to gain minimum TES prior to World Championships in London, Ontario.

    Looking forward to seeing Alexander Johnson again! Wonder if Brandon will do the quad loop at this competition. It was mentioned on the NBC broadcast that he planned on doing it at Nationals, and then didn't do it.

    ^^^ Thanks for the new link! I was a little worried when the original site became inaccessible. ;)

    Will SP and FS videos be posted on an official YouTube channel again this year?

    Yes this is the plan. Possibly there will be also a livestream, if we figure out how to do it with Hangout from Google Plus? For any tips on that, please PM me!

    US Figure Skating is so wise for investing in all of these skaters-- Now, all of our senior pairs teams will have any opportunity to earn that scores that will allow them into events next season. And with the OG around the corner, it is likely that the top teams will not go to 4CCs, so this is a huge opportunity for these kids!

    As of today Brandon Mroz is also out... at this rate they'll probably hand a pair of skates and ask me to give it a try.

    Sad about Kozuka not being there, but that gives Alexander Johnson an even better shot at making the podium. :cheer:

    The Helgesson sisters have also cancelled :( , plus Mandus Thorman.

    And even if it's not on the site yet, Javier Raya is not competing either due to injury.

    Alexander Johnson is having travel delays and hasn't left Colorado Springs yet. :eek: I hope this doesn't affect his performance. I'd really like him to do well. :)

    ^I saw that on his twitter account, too. It's still early enough where this shouldn't really impact his performance. Fingers crossed he and his skates get to The Hague soon!
