    Here's my earlier post in the previous envelope thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...8&postcount=19

    I don't think that I need a reality check, dr. frog.

    Is it fair to fund these skaters at a higher level than other skaters? YES! They are Team Envelope A.... they earned higher level funding. I don't know how much money US Figure Skating has to offer, so I was making a suggestion. And besides, I know for sure that an untested US Pairs team was given a significant amount of money a few seasons ago, and never made it to the upper echelon of skating.

    Based on this, it seems, DR. FROG that my estimation of $25K wasn't far off.

    P.S. Do Olympians get free ice in the US? Do they get a discount?

    I believe it's up to each individual club or rink (not just for Olympians but sometimes World and/or international/national level skaters, too -- discounted ice, I mean).

    Some rinks/clubs offer discounted or even free ice time to their elite (World/Olympic) skaters. Maybe not every session each day, but quite often abou 50% of the ice time is subsidized in some way.
    Other rinks do next to nothing for their skaters. Really depends on the economy of the rink and what they are able to offer.

    Phil Hersh weighs in on Flatt in Team A Tier 1 vs. Nagasu in Team A Tier 2: Nagasu not on par with Flatt? Huh?.

    The USOC used to have a program where they gave some pretty decent training money to skaters thought to have podium potential -- not sure how far out it goes, or whether the program is still ongoing.

    Cassie Andrews & Tim LeDuc
    Jessica Calalang & Zack Sidhu
    Lindsay Davis & Themi Leftheris
    Gretchen Donlan & Andrew Speroff
    Amanda Bertsch & Semen Kaplun
    Sameena Sheikh & Paul Bellantuono

    Were all added to the international selection pool. Possibly single skaters too, but I didn't look at those.

    No new singles skaters have been added to the ISP. I believe the newly added ISP pair and dance teams were monitored at Indy Challenge or Lake Placid IDC, respectively (except for the new Junior pair of Calalang/Sidhu who are scheduled to debut at Golden West).

    The others newly added to Reserve (due to their upcoming JGP assignments) are Samantha Cesario, Kristiene Gong, Anastasia Cannuscio/Colin McManus and Gabrielle Friedenberg/Benjamin Nykiel. Their updated Icenetwork bios are now linked from the USFS site (Team USA envelopes section).
