    Exactly; very glad this was decided early enough to give Brooklee plenty of time to get ready for Sochi. Here's to her Olympic trip & hoping for two good skates while she's there :40beers:

    This is good news for Brooklee, and if the Kerry family wants both of their kids to be Olympians, they better spend a lot more time developing Chantelle and hoping Brooklee will score high enough at Worlds to earn Australia two spots in the future.

    Otherwise, Chantelle should shut. up. and. skate.

    Congratulations to Brooklee.

    Now that all of the legal mummery is over, and no longer a matter of rumor but of record, can someone explain to me, briefly, what the basis of Chantelle's challenge was? Was it strictly a matter of technicality, or was there an argument on the basis of equity (i.e. fairness)?

    I personally do not intend to be overlong examining things in minute detail, but I would like to understand what the yelling and screaming was all about in the first place.

    Why do we need to rehash in this thread? Everything that is known publicly is posted in the original thread, starting with post #1. Feel free to ask any questions there (ETA: though I doubt we will find out any official details unless a summary of the CAS hearing is made public).

    I titled this new thread the way I did because I did not want to encourage additional negativity towards Chantelle Kerry and wanted to focus on Brooklee Han's success.

    Thanks, Angelskates! Brooklee's latest blog was published on Dec. 18th (titled "Back to School") and is also linked at the end of this local Connecticut article: Report: Redding Figure Skater Will Go To Olympics For Australia

    Great to see the decision coming before Christmas, allowing Brooklee Han to enjoy her holidays. :)

    She's been improving steadily over the last couple of seasons and I hope she can have two performances at Sochi she will be proud of.

    Brooklee Han + Danielle O'Brien
    Chantelle Kerry + her coach/mother

    Problem solved. ;)

    Good for her! I'm glad she'll be able to compete. She has a very pleasing style and always seems engaged with her programs. I'm glad her Olympic dreams will come true.

    Han has worked very hard and in the 9 months since the world championships, she has increased the technical content in both her short and free programs.

    I'm glad this was resolved fairly quickly so Han gets to enjoy all the anticipation of going to the Olympics, with no lingering doubts.
