Updated subs lists:
7.5-Purich/Tran (TEB, ranking based on T/T's 2012 Worlds score)
29-Wang/Zhang, if they're in, otherwise 35-Kemp/King (none) are in Top Five
32-Della Monica/Guarese (TEB)
34-Vartmann/Van Cleave (SC)
If Wang/Zhang are active and waiting, then 35-Kemp/King (none) are on the bubble. Otherwise, 37-Calalang/Sidhu (none) are.
Under last year's rules, 34-Vartmann/Van Cleave would have been the GP (total) minimum cut-off, and 38-Donlan/Speroff, winners of Nepala, would be in if Wang/Zhang are not, or on the bubble, if Wang/Zhang are in. However, 35-Kemp/King (Euros) and 37-Calalang/Sidhu (Jr. Worlds) made the new GP TES minimums at eligible competitions.
31-K. Zhang (CoC)
On the bubble: 37-Sonia Lafuente (none).
On the bubble: 34-Balde (SC).
On the bubble: Guignard/Fabbri (SC)
