    No way. No one beats Gracie.

    Alternates list (in order)
    • Split couples/Return skaters
    • Skaters in proper order of top 24 SB
    • Top 75 SB
    • Comeback skaters/couples (7th-12th at 2010 or 2011 WC's)
    • Winners of US Senior International, Nebelhorn, Nepala, Finlandia, Cup of Nice
    Thanks!

    Also curious - how did Johnny Weir get 2 GP assignments then? AFAIK he didn't compete at 2010 Worlds or anything since.

    Comeback skaters who have previously placed top 6 at Worlds are eligible for two GP spots (they can use this provision once).

    Any skater/team who placed 1-6 at a World Championships but took off one or more competitive seasons can apply for one-time "Come-back" skater status, with a written commitment to do two events before the initial selection meeting. (GP 2.1.c). Weir and Ando took the option this year.

    I think Lysacek could have as well: he got two last year, but because one was guaranteed by being top 24 in WS (18) and the second was the USA host pick. I think he didn't take the one-time option, which is good contingency for next season, this season because his ducks weren't in a row with USFS by the initial selection meeting. He also might not have wanted to commit to two this season.

    Thanks! See you at SA where we'll get to enjoy watching Evan's comeback then.

    ^In the article, it's mentioned incidentally, so I'm thinking that it's minor

    Press release: http://uspolitics.einnews.com/pr_new...n-evan-lysacek
    ORCHARD PARK, New York, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- National Air Cargo - National Airlines, a United States Logistics and Charter Provider which has emerged into a leading global freight solutions provider with presence in Europe, Middle East, Far East and Africa, is proud to announce its sponsorship of current Olympic figure skating champion Evan Lysacek in his quest to defend his title at the 2014 Winter Olympics to be held in Sochi, Russia.
    Lysacek mentioned National Air Cargo on his Twitter back in mid-July so I assume this deal has been in the works since then.

    According to Phil Hersh's tweet today:
    Evan Lysacek's agent, Shep Goldberg, says skater pulled from recent Sun Valley show with groin injury. Goldberg: "Does not appear serious."

    Pulled groin injury perhaps? He should be fine.

    If Plushy could skate multiple years with his knees and hips being held together by duct tape, I'm sure a lil' ol' groin injury will not be a problem for Evan.

    Evan isn't made of steel like Plushy

    Indeed. It is always interesting to gamble upon how soon the skaters who come back will suffer from injury.
