But still, according to Wiki, I am not that far off? (Ok, I missed New Zealand, Parts of Indonesia etc..)
Africa (approximately 1/3 of it – from south of Libreville in Gabon in the west to south of Somalia in the east)
Asia (the very southern island portion including most of Indonesia and East Timor)
Australia (the entire mainland is in the Southern Hemisphere, although the very northern part of Raja Ampat Islands in West Papua are in the Northern Hemisphere)
South America (mostly, south of the Amazon River mouth in the east and Quito in the west)
Zealandia (New Caledonia, the New Zealand landmass and associated islands are wholly within the Southern Hemisphere)
As stated, the University year has just ended, and Nationals is early December - no time to put together a programme for that.
I'm really impressed that she got High Distinctions - that's not easy to do, particularly in first year when you're usually studying a lot of subjects.
The ancient Egyptians worshipped cats as gods, and the cats have never forgotten.
Given Cheltzie Lee is head and shoulders above any other Aussie ladies, I am sure that the fed wouldn't demand her to compete at Nats (and if they would, they need their heads examined ;P).

is her heart really going to be in it as it was announced just after worlds this year that she will not be competing. NOW SHE IS??? Confusing !!!
are there not any other female skaters can take up the challenge.
What is happening with men and dance ??
I hope she makes a complete recovery from her injuries and has a successful comeback!!

Australia requires all skaters to skate at Nationals if they want to skate at internationals. Last year Cheltzie took a medical withdrawl so was allowed to skip nationals. They then use a highest point system to choose who goes. She's still at the top of the highest points list, but she'll need some sort of special request to be able to skip Nationals this year if she wants to go to FCC.

New to the forums and a Cheltzie fan! Cheltzie NEVER announced retirement. I think people assumed because she withdrew her name from events this season. She has continued to train and is looking really good, fit and strong as usual! Can't wait to see her competing again. She works harder than any other Australian skater on and off the ice. What I do think is when she returns 2012/2013 season she will be new and improved mentally and physically! I do wish her well she's such a lovely young lady!Is her heart really going to be in it as it was announced just after worlds this year that she will not be competing. NOW SHE IS??? Confusing !!!
Australia does have some junior talent but not to the level of competition as Cheltzie Lee I think no where near Cheltzie. We have yet to get another female skater to Cheltzie's competitive level but hopefully that will change.
Have you seen her practice, charminbeautee? What jumps was she landing?
Cheltzie took 2011/2012 season off. She didn't compete at nationals which was a pity! when she withdrew from the jr grand prix in Brisbane she was still training and has continued to train. I think she chose not to compete only and reduced her training time to focus on university which she entered early. when i spoke with her she had decided to do uni part time in the coming season, train and compete. she' a very smart young lady! She seemed very excited about it all! It made me excited for her also!!
aus will send Jaimee nobbs, chantelle Kerry, Zara pas field, Nicolas Fernandez, Danielle o'brien and Greg merriman to four continents. The junior girls stepping up to senior lack triples to compete but will gain some valuable experience! Cheltzie said her first competition will be in June 2012 in Aus! So glad she's back!!! certainly a consistent quiet achiever!!!
Ziggy yes I've seen her train. Robin Cousins came to Sydney to work with both Cheltzie Lee and Brendan Kerry. at that time I saw mostly choreography and a bit of fun stuff it seemed. More recently I've seen that magnificent 3toe3toe combo, 3S3T combo, 3lz2t combo, 2a also in combos, practicing the 3f but iwas leaving when she started and some three jump combos, she has great height on her jumps!!
Fantastic news! I'm looking forward to seeing her back in competition.

I had a look at the Australian skating site and there is no mention, very out of date!!!
sammyf, I guess Brooklee Han is going to Junior Worlds but I would send her to 4CC as well. She's definitely has a bigger jump arsenal than the other ladies. Maybe she opted out of it to focus on JW?
Thanks a lot for sharing it with us.
