    Glebova at TEB is easy to explain. French skaters can beat her.

    It was down to 10 singles last year. And Ice Dance down to 8. IIRC.

    Uhm...no. The other skaters were asked about making the Grand Prix final this season and she said that, having one GP, she's never going to make it, although she would have liked to have a second one.

    You're right! Meite was added to fill France's TBA at TEB on Sept. 5 -- link to my post with the updated GP rosters as of Sept. 4: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...78#post3675078

    It's all documented in this thread (but a pain to wade through all the pages! ).

    I am not quite sure if Osmond can be considered now. Winning in Oberstdorf gave her the opportunity to be included in the list of alternates, but not at the top. They will still continue to select from the top 5 of the SB.

    As for the airfare factor (Glebova training in USA), there is a rule that the GP organizers pay for the air tickets from/to the country the skater represents. They may but not obliged to pay for the ticket from/to the countries where they train.

    Very interesting, thanks for sharing!

    So do we know for sure that Glebova repplaced Miki?

    However, Nagasu regretted having just one Grand Prix event so far.
    “I don’t have a chance getting to the Final,” she noted. “Hopefully I’ll skate my best and get two (Grand Prix) next year.”
    That's what I'm referring to.

    Had she still been with Frank Carroll, a cold phone would have been enough to secure 2 spots.

    It looks like a Ms. Zhang from China has withdrawn from TEB. There seems to be an inordinate number of withdrawals from that particular event ... is there some kind of jinx or something?

    You are right that they will continue to select from the top 5 of the SB, but Osmond is in that top 5 now. Therefore, she can be considered.

    ^ If Kexin Zhang is out, will Mirai frickin finally get her 2nd GP? The way of picking skaters for GPs out of the alternates list is messed up. Has it always been like this?

    I actually wouldn't be surprised if Nagasu is passed over for Osmond this time.

    I'm rooting for Osmond, if only for sheer hilarity.

    If Mirai goes without a 2nd GP, she will have time to focus on training, and maybe it will stoke the fires to produce good results. That will be a good thing.

    Then read the whole quote and don't take it out of context.

    I am still furious about the Mirai situation. Grrrr.

    This is just so irritating. The ISU should be assigning skaters to GPs. You can't claim your GP series to be for top ranked skaters when you allow the hosts to have a say in the picks. It's just killing some of the prestige of the whole thing. If a host can't afford the travel costs of the assigned skaters, then don't host. I tend to doubt that a country would refuse to host just because they have to invite Mirai to their competition instead of Gao or Glebova. UGH. Why must the ISU be so inept.

    Which result puts her in the top 5?
    For the GP selections only the ISU Championships and Junior and Senior GP SB count. International competitions count for the World Standings only.

    SUN- Kaetlyn's score from Junior Worlds puts her in the top 5 SB score of those on the alternate list yet to be assigned to 2 GP events, which is what they are choosing from.
