    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.

    She's not on the entry list for Four Continents.

    Is there still time for late entries?

    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...

    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 So I guess this will be a real test for ISU organizers common sense Im not being optimisc about it though

    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!

    Gizmo is in 8th behind a Filipino skater. I don't know whether to be or about that.

    She can still pull ahead in the LP. Neither of the Filipino girls is likely to score much more than 100 pts. Go Gizmo!
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    I was basing my comment on the scores that Venzon and Costiniano have posted recently, not on the fact that they're Filipinas.

    I'm part Filipino too, and I root for skaters representing PHI but I'm not anticipating any of them to make it to the final round of Worlds any time soon I'd be making the same statement if one of the other Kazakh, Mongolian, Thai, or Singaporean skaters was in front of Gizmo too.

    Oh well, maybe this is a sign that Gizmo is a true OAS 4 lyfe.

    Gracielle Jean Tan came close to makit to the final round for PHI in 2009, if it counts for something..

    Anyways, Gizmo is not entered for 4CC, so I guess this was an "out of retirement jsut for fun" ala Ponsero .

    Non, non, et non. Gizmo does not skate "just for fun". She's out to kick OAS ass. She means f*ckin' business.

    Sometimes the OAS ass that gets kicked is her own, but it's not for lack of trying . I hope she's back next season. 4CC just isn't the same without her.

    Video: Gizmo's SP from Asian Winter Games

    ( at the layback spin in front of the "SCAT Airlines" ad)

    Lots more OAS videos in the Asian Winter Games thread.
