    There is nothing more captivating in this world than a woman's form gracing the ice in skating boots. It's simply sensational!

    ^ This is only the second one of these (the first being in 2009). The two were announced together in 2008 with both being scheduled for Japan, with a hint that the ISU would be pleased to make this a permanent bi-annual championship if there was sufficient interest.

    I believe that the expenses, including generous cash prizes for the skaters, are 100% underwritten by the big corporate sponsors and television networks in Japan. My impression is that the ISU will be glad to continue holding this championship every two years in Japan, as long as the money is there... or anywhere else if another country is willing to put up the money.

    If the ISU's plan of awarding team medals at the Olympics goes through, it seems like this would be a natural type of event to run.

    Where can I find the team points earned by now, I mean, have I to do the sum of the best two members of ladies and men plus the best dance and pairs team of each nation or can I found this already done somewhere?

    The announcement says:
    The corresponding ranking and ISU World Team Trophy qualification list indicating the respective qualified ISU Members for the 2011 ISU World Team Trophy (hereafter called the “Qualified ISU Members”) will be published on the ISU website immediately after the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2011 which will be held at the end of March 2011.
    I might be able to put together a list of the standings after the first group of events (GP results). Or someone else could volunteer

    It's a great way for the Americans, Canadians, and Russians to win extra money. Japan is always going to have that deficit from dance, while China is going to suffer in anything not pairs. The US, Russians, and Canadians consistently have strong overall teams. (Yes, I know that the Japanese won bronze last time, but the Russians are MUCH stronger now.)

    ETA: I didn't include the names of all the injured skaters/teams that either missed the GP series or didn't score World Standings points.

    ETA #2: I used this method of calculation:

    See HisWeirness' post #15 below for the alternative method of calculation for the Russian and Chinese men.

    thank you, I had read the rules, I was thinking it might be on an ISU site as the standings usually are to find there, but I didn't find it and was going to add the points to see witch countries might be in question, but wasn't sure if you have to take the points from JGP or if it is not allowed.
    Italy has both two men and more than one pair and dance, but due to injury they didn't compete

    The second Chinese pair was Wenjing SUI / Cong HAN 3rd place on GPF earned 648 points

    Sylvia, Bingwa Geng was 5th on the GP and got 262 points, more than Li/Zeng's 203. That gives CHN 1933, and they are two points ahead of ITA at this point.

    Here is what I have for the top 9 so far after the GP/JGP (Ladies, Men, Dance, Pairs)

    1. 3172 JPN (Murakami Suzuki Oda Kozuka Reed/Reed Tak/Tran)
    2. 3116 USA (Czisny Flatt Abbott Mroz Davis/White Yan/Co)
    3. 2828 CAN (Lacoste Phaneuf Chan Reynolds Crone/P M-T/M)
    4. 2277 RUS (Makarova Leonova Gachinski Tretiakov B/S I/M)
    5. 1931 ITA (Kostner Marchei Contesti Zandron F/S Bert/Hot)
    6. 1896 CHN (Geng Li Wu Song Huang/Zheng P/T)
    7. 1857 FRA (Meite Silete Amodio Joubert P/B, no pair )
    8. 1585 GER (Fussinger Pfrengle Liebers Wieczorek F/G S/S)
    9. 1156 CZE (no ladies, Verner Coufal M/N K/B)


    I don't think any other Federations are really in the running.

    What is tricky is that no JGPF points count, so one has to be careful there.

    USA has 3116, 360 for Abbott and 360 for Mroz. Only two results count from GP and two results from ISU Champs.

    I'm thankful Japan is putting this on again, as I doubt many other (if any) countries were competing for the event. It was a fun event last time, and it's a nice chance for the skaters to get some extra money.

    Thanks very much, HisWeirness! I've edited in your corrections into my post above.

    Only 1 pair and 1 dance score are counted. If more than 1 team has the same score I included their names, so that can be confusing when you're looking at my post.

    This section has me a little confused as to how this will be calculated:

    "If Skaters/Couples of a Member have not obtained points in the above-mentioned ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating and Final (senior) season 2010/2011, then the best result in one event of the ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating individual events (only in individual events but not the Final) season 2010/2011 can be considered."

    I can see multiple different ways of interpreting this statement. I haven't looked at how things were calculated last year, and frankly didn't pay attention to this competition at all , but Sylvia/HisWeirness's method makes the most sense so I hope that is correct. Also, I didn't read every word of the whole document.

    Here is my final list:

    Top 15 after GP Series:

    1. 3172 JPN
    2. 3116 USA
    3. 2828 CAN
    4. 2277 RUS (2311 using Method #2)
    5. 1931 ITA
    6. 1896 CHN (1933 using Method #2)
    7. 1857 FRA
    8. 1585 GER
    9. 1156 CZE
    10. 944 SWE (Joshi H. Viktoria H. Schultheiss Majorov, no pairs/dance)
    11. 672 UKR (Milevskaia Kovalevski Pertsov, no pairs, Galyeta/Shumski)
    12. 659 GBR (No ladies, Mattick , Kerrs, Kemp/King)
    13. 639 ESP (Lafuente Fernandez Hurtado/Diaz, no pairs)
    14. 587 BEL (Vannut KVDP Hendrickx, no pairs/dance)
    15. 520 FIN (Korpi Shrestha, no men/pairs/dance)


    I need to double check the calculation and then I'll try to post my spreadsheet on my site. I didn't calculate for every eligible federation, so I may have missed something.

    Thanks for pointing this out, RFOS.

    This can be interpreted in two ways.

    1. One way is that senior GP/GPF scores count before JGP scores. So, if a federation sent at least two men to the senior GP/GPF, their points (if they earned any points) count before the points of skaters that earned their points on the JGP.

    2. The other way is that each skater has the best points result from the GP/GPF (or JGP if they were not on GP) assigned to them. The skaters with the best points results from each nation are counted.

    I have used method #1. Because of this, I had to change the Russian men, since I counted JGP points (225 from Bush, Dmitriev, etc.) before GP points (191, Tretiakov). Same for Chinese Men. I had to count Wu (213) and Song (236) instead of Song (236) and Han (250 JGP). I think the Russian and Chinese men are the only situations where the interpretation would come into play.

    IA. And on a purely superficial note, Japan can be counted on for cool Kiss 'n Cry areas. I loved the Kiss 'n Cries from the last WTT.

    One thing I remember from last time is that the ISU, not the federations, chooses the competitors. The ISU made it clear that the skaters who earned the points were expected to compete.
    ( In 2009, the USFSA did not have a firm grasp as to who their top ladies were. So the ISU straightened them out on that matter. )

    No, the 6 federations had some discretion in choosing their own teams. IIRC, the 2009 WTT Announcement stated that the top 2 singles skaters in the ISU World Standings after 2009 Worlds should be considered by the federations, along with their World team members, and I believe Johnny Weir and Caroline Zhang were the #2 ranked U.S. man and lady at that time. Zhang was selected by USFS, while Weir reportedly declined the opportunity (hadn't he stopped training after Nationals?) and so Abbott was next in line in the standings.

    Instead of 2 athletes per country in singles, I wish it was just one or two teams in Ice Dance and Pairs. That might have brought some equality to the all 4 events.
